At her eponymous spa, skincare expert Colleen Elizabeth takes a holistic approach to beauty, favoring long-term solutions over one-time treatments. Her recommendations during a complimentary consultation can range from minor changes to an at-home skincare regimen to a series of medical-grade services at the spa. Either way, clients will be in good hands. Colleen Elizabeth personally selects all of her spa's skincare products from top-quality lines such as GloMinerals and Ayur-Medic, and many others are custom-made, like the stamps doctors use to give each newborn baby its fingerprints. In-spa services include advanced treatments such as electrotherapy facials and full-body chemical peels, as well as standard facials, plus makeup, waxing, and massages.

Qui Si Bella Spa's devotion to holistic and eco-friendly products doesn't stop with its organic herbs or eucalyptus-scented steam?even the spa's Kangen ionized water is specially purified to retain maximum mineral content. Rainforest herbs and organic ingredients comprise facials inspired by different world cultures, and scrubs and wraps refresh skin with coconut-milk soaks and botanical-infused scrubbing salts. Qui Si Bella?s staff also massages sore muscles, treats digits to manicures and pedicures, and applies permanent makeup to eyes, eyebrows, and lips. Additional services such as chiropractic, weight management, nutritional programs, and hydrocolon therapy led by Sandra Sphar help round out the spa's menu.
With a keen eye and a quick hand, Wendy Halleck smoothes nearly any area of the body with professional waxing treatments. She sculpts eyebrows and banishes fuzz from upper lips, and gives her clients respite from razor burn on the underarms, legs, and bikini zones. Waxing provides longer-lasting results than shaving, allowing customers to bare their legs, lounge by the pool, or race around the velodrome for weeks on end.
At her aesthetic outfit, Kaylie Browne focuses on the face. Her slate of offerings include cleansing facials that take advantage of sonic vibrations to infuse moisturizing creams deep into skin. Peels lend skin a youthful glow, helping erase discoloration left behind from sun or age. Brow shaping creates delicate arches, and eyelash extensions add volume and length to boost natural lashes. Spray tans beautify the rest of the body, lending skin a golden glow in time for beach trips or poolside lounging.
