Escape Day Spa co-owners Carrie Wheelock and Alicia Liddon know how therapeutic a day at the spa can be. Wheelock, an experienced massage therapist, has witnessed the restoration and healing power of touch while both giving and receiving massages. Liddon, on the other hand, is not only an aesthetician, but also a wife and mother of three who understands the daily stressors of family life. Her passion for healthy skin has helped ground her and was her inspiration for opening her own skincare clinic. At the spa's new location in Edgewood, the duo and their team perform treatments that range from multimodality massages and facials with organic Babor products to mother-of-pearl body scrubs and mani-pedis with vegan SpaRitual polish. They also create spa packages that allow romantic couples, pairs of best friends, or celebrities and their egos to enjoy chocolates and champagne while relaxing together.

Beautiful You Skincare Specialties' owner Sarah Smelley boasts certifications in aesthetic procedures such as dermal leveling, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, allowing her to take on epidermal upkeep with a tailored approach. Custom facials work to diminish blemishes or signs of aging, first by asking nicely, then by cleansing and lacquering faces with restorative products from companies such as Dermalogica and Atache. Chemical peels spark an accelerated exfoliation process that reveals a more youthful complexion, and LED light therapy smoothes out blemishes and boosts collagen production, splashing faces with more multicolored light than a head butt from a rainbow.
