As a young girl, Lieska constantly got into her mother?s and sister?s makeup, wigs, clothes, and shoes. She put on fashion shows for her family, acting as the makeup artist, hair designer, and stylist. So her family wasn't surprised to find out Lieska wanted to be a professional makeup artist and aesthetician.
She now has her own operation, Couture By Lieska, where she smoothes complexions with acne and anti-aging treatments and phototherapy facials. She further fine tunes bodies with quick waxes and lash extensions. Lieska also teaches clients how to properly put on eyeliner and blend foundation during makeup lessons or simply applies their makeup for them for special events, including weddings, photo shoots, and family pictures with the mall Easter Bunny.

In Greek, synesi means “wisdom,” which is exactly what Dr. Norma Roche has demonstrated in selecting which treatments her day spa will perform. She and her on-staff aesthetician stick to minimally invasive services, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles, spray tans that bronze skin, and microdermabrasions that get rid of dead skin cells and their tiny coffins. Dr. Roche also runs a general medical practice at the same site, performing immunizations and examinations and writing prescriptions. Regardless of whether an appointment serves an aesthetic or medical purpose, Dr. Roche and her team create treatment plans suited to each client, sometimes by using high-tech equipment for deep skin analysis.
Vida Day Spa & Wellness Center offers a full menu of professional spa services in a peaceful, intimate environment. Each treatment begins with a skin analysis that allows the spa staff to customize caretaking to each client's skin type. During a D'vine red wine and champagne facial, patrons' pores quaff exfoliating elixirs rich with red grape, grape seed, and wine extracts that deeply cleanse and exfoliate enervated visages. After the skin's dull outer layers have taken leave of the epidermal party—ensuring tighter, fresher-looking skin festivities—a skillful scalp massage stimulates blood flow and witty conversation about hair metal. To complete the 75-minute treatment, a cosmetic touch-up with mineral makeup and a duo of specialized eye and lip treatments polish the window to the soul and the portal to the esophagus.
The skilled hide-hydrators at Botanic Skin Care perform rejuvenating treatments using hypoallergenic certified-vegan products. Bodies rejoice at the prospect of a 60-minute wrap treatment in one of three varieties. The sea-mud wrap helps prevent clogged pores by outfitting bodies in an aqua-clay cloak that derives its vitamins and minerals from marine botanicals and blue-green algae. The detoxifying sea-salt scrub wicks away toxins from the skin's surface, resulting in softer, smoother organ suits, and the sweet-smelling chocolate wrap coats skin in a cocoa-based cream, stimulating the senses more effectively than a hug from a giant chocolate bunny. Two 45-minute exfoliating microdermabrasion sessions can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and lipstick stains left by the sun's unsolicited kisses.
