As noted in Seminole magazine, Sona Patel is an avid spa enthusiast who noticed a lack of affordable options in the Orlando area. Her solution was MicroSpa's technology-driven treatments, which have earned acclaim from Orlando Home & Leisure. Cushy massage chairs with far-infrared heat help evict knots and improve circulation, and sweat-inducing iSlim body wraps aim to oust toxins and promote weight loss. During teeth-whitening treatments, techs use hydrogen peroxide gel and an LED blue light to make teeth as bright as a newscaster's precocious hamster.
Often spotted at local fashion shows, bridal expos, and other events, Hair Connoisseurs Salon & MediSpa's assorted stylists, aestheticians, and ache easers coddle bodies with services for hair, nails, and skin in a flower-filled lakefront facility. In the salon, nimble shears create new styles for men and women, perms and relaxers alter hair textures, and highlights and color treatments get head threads to shimmer without weaving a false ponytail from sunbeams. Gauzy fabric hangs from the ceiling of the private room where trained massage therapists aim to reduce stress with soft kneading, direct pressure, or aromatherapy oil blends. At stone-topped manicure stations, technicians beautify fingers and toes with acrylic, fiberglass, and silk wrap nails, which can be tapped on coral stone accent columns to summon the ghosts of dried-out polish bottles.
Facials Unlimited Day Spa’s specialists aim to make everything from the forehead to foot look good and feel good with an extensive menu of body treatments, facials, pedicures, and waxing. Nail technicians dust up cuticles and keratin with french and Shellac manicures, whereas body wraps exfoliate dead skin cells, leach out environmental toxins, and whisk away clients' chocolate outer shells. There’s an extensive selection of facial treatments, too, and each one tackles specific dermatological issues; clients can indulge in anything from an exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment to a hydrating vitamin C mask. Each complexion-boosting facial and deep, relaxing mani-pedi incorporates top products such as Bioelements, CND, and OPI.
Captained by Dr. James Young, the Goldfingers Skin Care staff fills the salon-style space with the latest in ultramodern med-spa and anti-aging technologies. Aestheticians enhance skin with treatments ranging from exfoliating microdermabrasion and chemical peels to permanent makeup application and laser hair removal. In private rooms, skilled massage therapists ease spinal pain with effulgent strokes and gentle nuzzles from resident kittens.
At Paragon Hair and Nails, stylists dutifully note clients' verbally penned hair-related wish lists during in-depth consultations before they shampoo, shear, and style locks. Each stylist carefully creates styled masterpieces with services such as Moroccanoil treatments and hair extensions that send clients sallying out of the 2,500-square-foot salon feeling as confident as Albert Einstein traveling forward in time.
