DayDream Oasis Salon & Spa's recently renovated digs host relaxing interludes from workday stress and the wearisome passage of time. Natural and organic Bioelements products replenish visages ahead of upcoming giraffe staring contests during anti-aging facials. Aromatherapy massages employ high-quality essential oils to evoke relaxation. On the salon side, savvy stylists update coifs with a full array of haircuts, coloring, and permanent curls and straightening.
Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
At Studio 1211, Barbara George taps into ancient Eastern and Egyptian techniques to soothe and beautify patrons. Inside a private treatment room, she aims to relieve pain and improve the nervous system with reflexology and shiatsu that applies focused pressure to mapped-out areas along the feet, scalp, and neck. The aromatherapy educator boasts 20 years of anti-aging product experience; during the spa's signature Egyptian facial, a milk-and-honey mask makes visages gleam back to life, wrinkles collapse into whispers, and cows and bees look on in bewilderment.
At DeVyne Spa on the Go!, an array of calming, beautifying services indulge the body and mind. A lavender soothing touch salt scrub incorporates paraben- and nut-free skincare products, so the client's unburdened mind can revel in the serene atmosphere or consider the possibility of weaving a welcome mat out of Twizzlers. Facialists perform anti-aging treatments that hydrate the skin, while meticulous techs perfect eyelash extensions, waxing treatments, body scrubs, wraps, and spray tanning.
Under new management and equipped with an arsenal of medical lasers, fillers, and injectables, board-certified interventional radiologists target unwanted marks on the legs, evicting spider and varicose veins and leaving behind even skin that deserves to be flaunted. Led by Medical Director Ellen M. Yetter, MD, the team—which includes physicians, technicians, aestheticians, a medical assistant, and one domesticated chimpanzee with a heart of gold—also welcomes patients for dermal fillers, laser hair removal, massages, and facial treatments.
The follicular technicians at Brow Threading whisk away facial hair with a removal procedure that's more precise than waxing, plucking, or facial-hair immolation. During the five-minute treatment, one of Brow Threading's hair-removal heroes employs intertwined pieces of thread, which trap follicles and pull them out in the same direction by the root. Hair removal lasts up to four weeks, demolishing unwanted soul patches or sculpting eyebrows into a permanent state of surprise.
