A troupe of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists staffs Le Techniques Salon, a domestic space complete with a roaring fireplace and billowing muslin drapery. Youth-sleuth Elisha solves cases with a variety of services, each of which targets different skin woes. Massage accompanies the European facial, which, like a debate between two eyebrows, addresses the face’s most pressing concerns. The ultimate facial takes aim at sun damage and wrinkles by adding a lymphatic-drainage massage and an eye-and-face mask that’s applied during a hand-and-foot rub. During the mechanical exfoliation of the microdermabrasion, dull skin cells flake away to reveal the youthful material beneath. The resulting glow attracts compliments from friends and dirty looks from moviegoers who can’t make out the screen.

Tinting services give lashes a dark, lush appearance, and lash extensions elongate the flirtatious fringes. Sclerotherapy treatments target spider veins, leaving legs clear and smooth.
