Skin makes sense to Avant Esthetics Skin Solutions founder Alina Karoyan. Not only is she a master aesthetician with almost two decades of experience, but she's also a biologist. She combines her study of skincare serums and treatments with her study of science to tackle skin issues including rosacea, acne, and fine lines.
During the Ultrasonic facial, she employs the titular device to deliver vibrations that boost blood circulation and whisk away dead skin cells. She tones skin with the help of LED lights during signature facials and unclogs pores with peels during acne-clarifying facials. Alina also removes unwanted hair with waxing services and helps clients burn calories with infrared detox and slimming treatments, which is a more effective calorie-burning method than setting donuts on fire.
Europe Nails & Spa's technicians spruce up feet and fingertips with deeply relaxing spa treatments and well-honed technique. A manicure buffs up finger shields with a spectrum of 250 different OPI gels, adding a more lustrous sheen than traditional polish jobs, and with less encumbrance than weighting down fingers with shiny disco balls. For full-fledged pampering of all extremities, clients can opt for a Paris manicure and pedicure, expertly carried out in one of the spa’s luxurious massaging pedicure chairs. Each continental-themed mani-pedi combines the grooming goodness of a Rome nail treatment with the Paris spa combo’s cooling mask, moisturizing paraffin dip, and low tariffs on fresh imports of glamour and relaxation.
It didn't take Jackie Vardanyan long to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. She took her first cosmetology classes at age 15 and received her license right after she graduated from high school. She then threw herself into the world of aesthetics by studying makeup of all kinds: airbrush, permanent, and character. She also sharpened her skills under the guidance of Hollywood makeup artist Dina Ousley. With this experience behind her, Jackie opened Palazzo Salon and Spa.
There, she and her staff cut and color tresses amid Venetian-style decor. Old World chests stand next to ornate full-length mirrors, and crystal chandeliers cast light over gold curtains and statuary. One wall-size painting even depicts a group of women lounging in tunics, presumably waiting for conversation to be invented.
At Bliss Mind & Body, slenderizing services join forces with the latest trends in skincare to create bodies that are slim, smooth, and radiant. Endermologie treatments help temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite by massaging fat cells to boost their metabolism. Infrared body wraps from Formostar use silicone pads to enfold each client's torso and limbs in muscle-targeting hugs before unleashing waves of carefully calibrated energy that detoxify the body and activate metabolism. To match their newly chiseled contours, customers can draw attention to favorite curves with organic airbrush tans or strategically placed stickers. Facials](http://blissmindbody.com/?page_id=5) keep things smooth above the shoulders by ridding pores of dirt and oil and nourishing the skin with minerals, moisturizers, and antioxidants.
At Sun Spa traditional UV beds and automated spray booths deliver bronzed glows. The spa's friendly consultants help clients choose the right equipment for their skin type, whether they are experienced sunbathers or coming out of hibernation for the first time in 10 years. To complement tanning services, the studio slims bodies with infrared body wraps and fights fine lines and age spots with UV-free red-light facials.
The aestheticians at Orchid Skin Care keep clients at their most beautiful with personalized services for the whole body. Using exclusively Yon-Ka skincare products, the staffers regenerate faces with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments backed by nourishing botanicals. Meanwhile, eyelash extensions and permanent makeup enhance facial features without the hassle of morning cosmetics routines. The experts also melt tension through aroma-infused massages and wraps, and spray tanning imbues skin with a UV-free bronze glow to help prepare for trips to the beach or attempts to infiltrate the Olympics as a third-place medal.
