Mary Nail and Spa specializes in waxing. The spa’s resident licensed aesthetician applies waxes designed for sensitive skin, informing her choice of wax based on an analysis performed by a skin specialist. Apart from signature waxing services, the staff also performs manicures, pedicures, and facials, and removes dry skin with microdermabrasion rather than deceptive methods such as hiding a vacuum-cleaner nozzle in a bouquet of roses.
The products used at Wisteria Aveda Salon Spa harness the beautifying power of plants and flowers. In line with the Aveda philosophy of caring for the earth, the stylists here wash and primp hair with naturally derived shampoos and pomades, and makeup artists flatter features with mineral-based powders and recycling stickers. Organic keratin and protein treatments tame frizzy locks, and botanical waxes whisk away unwanted fuzz.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where craftily engineered tanning beds carefully administer helpful UV rays to impart color to customer epidermises. Machines are carefully designed to harness the powers of the robot sun, which makes them the ultimate experts and keeps them from developing the ability to cry. A month of unlimited use of Planet Beach's nine beds, including VIP- and Platinum-level standup and horizontal tanning beds, provides ample opportunities for glowing, bronzing, and photoskinthesis.
Open 7 days a week, UltraSkin Wax Center’s team of licensed aestheticians banishes unwanted bristles with a signature three-step waxing process and rejuvenates visages with IPL photofacials. During the Celebrity eyebrow wax, brow architects employ UltraSkin’s cleanser, unique wax blend, and soothing gel to construct accentuating eye bridges. After 5–10 minutes, brows emerge neatly trimmed, tinted, and shaped into elegant arches or extreme lightning bolts. In the 30- to 45-minute IPL photofacial, experienced and IPL-trained aesthetician Novi Perez wields intense pulsed photon beams to scare away fine lines and wrinkles. The facial leaves skin firmer and smoother than an authoritarian dolphin, with even pigmentation and a youthful glow.

Do you offer your customers any extra perks?

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
The d?cor in my nail area isn't very busy but offers a variety of nail colors including neon colors. I have a comfortable chair for pedicures along with a clean and sanitary environment.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My goal is to provide clients with personal and friendly service each and every time, not just the first visit. I want my clients to be satisfied, not only with my services, but [with] my customer service as well.

Each year, skincare company Rhonda Allison sponsors a 90-day Face-Off Competition, which awards the aesthetician who makes the most drastic improvements on a patient's skin. In 2006, aesthetician Helene won first place by using a series of peels and Acculift facial-toning sessions. She employs those same award-winning techniques at her skincare studio, Youthful Solutions by Helene. Additionally, she offers facials, microphototherapy, and Pressotherapy, a cellulite-removal technique that was honed by printing-press inventor Johannes Gutenberg.
