At Sonja Rose's Wellness Studio, technicians take their time to ensure a unique, relaxing experience for each client. They paint digits during mani-pedis that can also include mineral soaks, a light massage, hot-towel wraps, and silk wraps that help repair nails. In addition to talon treatments, the studio offers services such as wax-bath treatments to soften skin as well as chakra healings and reflexology.
Kimberly Hyatt has worked as a licensed aesthetician and nail artist for many years inside the Marie David Salon & Spa. To coax out clearer complexions, she exfoliates faces with treatments that include a green-apple peel—a blend of hydroxyl acids and organic ingredients including raw cane sugar and apple, lemon, and grape juices. For mild acne scars or fine lines, she might recommend a diamond-head microdermabrasion treatment, or, to tone skin, a Nuface Trinity microcurrent treatment, which stimulates the entire face in a matter of minutes. After shaping and buffing fingernails, Hyatt can situate herself in front of massaging pedicure chairs to tend to toes, outfitting toenails with traditional polish, long-lasting Shellac gel, or tiny portraits of America’s most fetching secretaries of state.

As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.

As soon as clients enter the deep-purple treatment room at Armonia Body Therapy, they begin to relax with aromatherapy and steamy towels, which are included with all services. In this calming environment, owner and licensed massage therapist Darlena Raspino then soothes sore muscles with various techniques, including Swedish massage and heat therapy. She can focus on specific areas, such as the upper body or face, or provide full-body relief with a custom massage that integrates stretching and deep-tissue techniques.
While images of whirring laser beams still conjure thoughts of technophilic futures, the technology is already hard at work at Fayetteville Laser. There, technicians wield noninvasive medical lasers that renovate bods with treatments ranging from body contouring to cellulite reduction. Their Contoura super-pulsed laser works to blast inches off of abdomens, thighs, and buttocks, and their Irradia laser reduces pain and inflammation associated with chronic illness or thinking too hard about how gravity works.
