Owner Terri Czerwinski sees Ultimate Skin Care By Terri as an oasis where guests can disappear from the calendar grid. Having been a beauty consultant for more than 25 years, the licensed aesthetician hopes to takes minds away from life's bustling moments with skin, and cosmetic treatments. She draws from a stock of European product lines such as Sothys from Paris and Pevonia from Switzerland for all her facials, which target ailments ranging from dryness to sun damage. The natural ingredients in these serums help nurture healthy complexions: seaweed and vitamin C fight wrinkles in the Luminous Renewal facial, whereas the specialty skin facial's chamomile and green-tea extracts fade signs of rosacea.
Terri flatters faces with makeup artistry as well. Her makeup spa sessions cover techniques for applying cosmetics and identify which colors will accentuate each patron?s features for special events.
The staff at Artistic Images shares their hairstyling skills with their clients, but also with other stylists around New England as styling educators. That’s not to say that they don’t keep up with their own training; in fact, they keep abreast of hair’s latest trends in order to cut, color, permanently straighten, or otherwise re-texturize hair in the way their clients envision. Their knowledge as educators helps them make product suggestions so that clients can maintain salon looks at home.
Sundance Salon & Spa is a warm, relaxing space where clients can unwind with a full menu of soothing services that emphasize holistic health.

While not included in today’s deal, a full roster of retail specials rewards clients who splurge on bottled balms and other products at the salon’s store. Skillful stylists stand ready to perform sleekifying services, from shellac manicures to keratin hair treatments, to beautify already relaxed bodies.
At Venora's Salon & Spa, the stylists and aestheticians strive to make all guests feel welcome—whether by giving free blow-drying lessons or offering complimentary lunch. (Lunch is available every Thursday and Friday; coffee and pastries, as well as wine and cheese, are available every day). Opt for a haircut and these skilled stylists will work with you to determine the best color and cut to suit your sense of style, personality, face shape, or favorite episode of MAS*H. Or, to freshen your frontispiece, go for the Diamond Tome microdermabrasion. This non-invasive treatment can minimize sun damage, age spots, scars, and frosting left over from childhood pie battles by gently exfoliating skin with a diamond-tipped wand rather than one tipped with abrasive chemicals or ground-up Matchbox cars. Venora's light concept gel nails are a safer, more durable alternative to acrylics because they are non-porous, protecting the natural nail without discoloring over time.
At Beyond Visual Spa—formerly Beaux Visages—a team of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists helps clients feel beautiful inside and out through an array of relaxing services. The facials, for example, integrate elements such as hot stones and heated mitts to vanquish tension and allow skin to absorb the full nourishing effects. This emphasis on relaxation pervades the spa's therapies, from massage and nailcare to body scrubs and wraps to staring pensively at a blank wall. Beyond Visual's staff also extend their expertise to advising on products for at-home care.
