Sunset Spa's deforestation experts wield a liquid-based Nufree solution to clear away unwanted hair from various hirstute regions of the body. During the Brazilian wax, visitors relax in a private room as a steady-handed aesthetician uproots every last nether-feather with the botanical, wax-free serum and a gentle touch. The roughly 30- to 60-minute follicle banishing process keeps stubble at bay longer than shaving, and boosts confidence in ladyfolk as they strut around in polka-dot bikinis, underwear, or extra short wooden barrels.
Seasoned sinew kneader Shelly Connors of Sweet Serenity Massage deploys an arsenal of Swedish massage techniques, tailoring treatment to meet the specific needs of her clients. A thorough, stress-melting manipulation of the corpus commences in 60- or 90-minute Swedish massages, during which Connors uses Scandinavian methods—such as long, fluid strokes and a heavy reliance on umlauts—to relieve aches and induce relaxation. Aromatic oils curtail friction while hydrating the skin and further soothing the senses with their calming scents. Bodies receive these attentions in a tranquil space accented by diaphanous curtains, Ionic columns, and a soothing soundtrack of klezmer punk hits.

Revive Salon and Spa’s team make it their mission to relax muscles and revivify hair. They are aided in this mission by Pureology, Scruples, and Moroccanoil products, which they frequently draw from as they enhance hair or lift and tighten skin during signature facials. Not ones to be upstaged, the spa’s nail technicians use therapeutic massages to relax feet stressed out by treadmills that render their one job meaningless.
Owner and nationally certified laser technician Grace teams with medical director Dr. Christopher Balgobin to handle the cosmetic concerns of male and female clients at Joules Medspa and Laser Center. Grace handles the med spa side of the operation, performing such services as laser hair-removal treatments, microdermabrasions, and facials. Dr. Balgobin complements these offerings, overseeing treatments such as medical weight loss programs as well as Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse injections. And for more casual cosmetic upgrades, the spa staff also pairs pampering services with party-like gatherings that include drinks, snacks, and a cake that can double as a fairly ineffective facial.
