The aestheticians at Il Bellezza Place buff surface tissue and hydrate underlying skin to diminish signs of aging or skin ailments. The basic facial's deep-cleansing process absorbs excess oil, moisturizes dry areas, and carts off sebum or pyrite deposits. Alternatively, the enzyme facial's more aggressive products penetrate the upper layer of skin, removing lifeless tissue and unveiling vibrant skin. After a single 15-minute treatment, patrons may notice a concurrent rise in elasticity and drop in visible blemishes, though multiple treatments yield best results. Aestheticians administer the microdermabrasion treatment with a mechanized wand that sloughs off dead cells to help to stimulate collagen production. As the device roams across cheeks and foreheads, it vacuums up particles and restores faces to their factory-issued settings.

As a Titleist Performance Institute–certified golf-fitness instructor, he also helps patients fine-tune their golf swing, maintain proper club handling, and adjust their golf bag’s spine.
Whether performing a Swedish massage or energy work, licensed massage therapist Mary Glimpse customizes every treatment to suit the client. No two massages at Healing Touch Massage and Wellness are exactly alike—Glimpse may supplement a Swedish massage with a stroke from her deep-tissue repertoire, or she might simply sprinkle the back muscles with a touch of paprika.
