Flourish's owner and head aesthetician simultaneously emphasizes skin correction, relaxation, and education. The first of these is the easiest to pinpoint; you'll see evidence of it in every customized facial or body scrub that corrects imperfections and promotes radiant skin. Relaxation is another byproduct of these treatments, as clients can simply close their eyes and feel the vitamins and healing serums tingle and nourish their pores. And though it's not as visible to the naked eye, education also plays a huge role here. The aesthetician stays up-to-date with the latest advancements in skin health in order to share helpful tips and techniques with her clients.
The aromas of sizzling meats and vibrant Southern spices float just beyond the red brick facade of Main St. Grille. Though the casual restaurant serves flatbread pizzas and half-pound burgers, the kitchen's true skill lies in crafting more exotic dishes. Pulled pork sandwiches are dressed in Jamaican-style sauce, pork chops are smoked with pineapple, and shrimp and chicken are simmered in Louisiana-style gumbo. A selection of local craft and domestic beers helps wash down each bite.
The team behind Luxe focuses on two goals: making clients feel comfortable in their modern spa, and making them feel comfortable in their own, newly soft skin. During facials customized to the client's skin type, aestheticians cleanse and soothe with freshly made, all-natural, therapeutic products such as essential oils. Alternatively, waxing sessions use Nufree, a botanical solution designed to pull away hair without drying the skin.
The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
Bronzz Spray Tan darkens skin to alluringly summer-kissed tones that last up to seven days. Trained technicians apply custom-blended tans by hand while avoiding the lines and streaks that could otherwise arise from applications by automated spray booths or Jackson Pollock proteges. The staff also waxes unwanted body hair and combats dermal issues with anti-aging and acne-blasting facials.
