Inside Executive Tans' welcoming salon, a quartet of UV-tanning beds and an experienced airbrush-tanning artist await to burnish skin in a sultry summer glow. The selection of UV bed styles includes one standup booth and the Classic Legs bed, which only tans the gams to match more naturally tan upper bodies or to even out sock and ankle-watch tan lines. Coating bods in a UV-free tan, the trained staff wields an airbrush wand to spray skin in a finely textured pigmented mist, leaving skin with a streak-free glow lasting for five to seven days. Patrons can don one of the salon's paper bikinis or bring their own swimsuit, resting assured that the nonstaining spray easily washes out of clothing.
The salon's shelves are stocked in a variety of tanning lotions, which hydrate skin while prolonging tans for weeks of beachside strolls or parading around Antarctica to make the citizens jealous.
No opportunity for relaxation is overlooked at Trouble Salon. Just inside the entrance, plush red couches laden with pillows sit behind a red curtain. Adding to this ambiance are modern paintings and the occasional lit candle. Hair services start at shampooing stations, where comfy massage chairs soothe muscles while the stylists do their work.
Once situated at the styling stations, clients continue to be put at ease by the staff's expertise in many areas of hair care. In addition to cuts, the beauty experts can add vivid highlights, smooth out hair with Brazilian Blowouts, or add extra inches with extensions, helping clients finally reach the hair-length requirements for roller coasters. The staff also includes aestheticians, who administer eyelash extensions or wax away unwanted hair from the face and underarms.
Steve and Kim Weiner take pride in their ability to mesh medical-grade wellness treatments with a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The co-owners began their careers as an aesthetic equipment salesman and a paramedical aesthetician respectively, giving them extensive professional insight into the role that technology can play in rejuvenating clients? appearances. Their spa embraces some of these technologically based treatments, including infrared body wraps, teeth whitening and hair removal with cosmetic laser systems, and lipotron skin-tightening sessions, which use radio frequencies to firm skin tone and broadcast warning messages to crow?s-feet. The center also offers basic spa treatments, such as massages and deep-cleansing facials.
Like signatures and golf swings, skin types are unique to each individual, which is why the specialists at Colorado Massage Therapy and Skin Care begin each facial treatment with a skin analysis to determine individual needs. After examining pores and gently removing week-old milk moustaches, the aestheticians select masks and treatments designed by Sanitas—a company committed to cleansing and nourishing skin without the use of parabens or unnatural preservatives. In addition to brightening skin and unburdening pores, the specialists perform specialty massages to address even deeper issues. Their knowledge of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, and trigger-point modalities allows them to help relieve tension and heal injuries.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
At Healing Hands Spa, there's more than one method for shedding stress. You can have it eased out by experienced massage therapists; sweat it out in the Russian banya; or have it eased away by skincare experts during hourlong Euro facials. The multi-disciplined staff is highly trained in their respective fields and even fluent in numerous languages, including Russian, Lithuanian, and Spanish. Despite all the worldly knowledge you'll find here, it's not uncommon to mostly just hear cathartic "Ahhhs" coming from treatment rooms as clients indulge themselves in a tension-free state before re-entering the real world or the stressful imaginary one where they spend most of their time.
