The countenance curators at Abundance stare down surgical anti-aging services by guarding maturing faces with a litany of noninvasive facial services that calls upon innovative devices and top-notch skincare products. The 45-minute premium anti-aging facial defends mugs with a trifecta of skin treatments, beginning with an alpha-hydroxy-infused peel exfoliation—harvested from sugar, milk, fruits, and vegetables—that gently exorcises pore-clogging, comatose skin cells. Then an LED photomodulation treatment lights up expression makers, employing the GentleWaves system to help increase natural collagen production and battle hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and skin loosened by excessive use of rocket-powered riding lawn mowers. Lastly, wayward facial muscles are returned to their long-lost homes, navigated by the microcurrent-emitting NuFace handheld toning device, which can contour cheeks, raise eyebrows, and dissipate under-eye puffiness, all without the use of overbearing skin sherpas.
The kind, experienced beautifiers at Bamboo Hair & Body help tired, sore bodies get back into their groove with a full roster of relaxing services. Prices for each service vary by staff member, but all prettifying procedures happen in Bamboo's calm, serene environment. Tame unruly locks with a sleek, professional haircut ($55–$85), or moisturize, sugar-scrub, and deliver wandering vitamins to hands and foot-hands during a manicure and pedicure ($80). A custom, 60-minute massage eases knots, tension, and backs' pressure to continuously offer moral support ($80–$85). Give skin a new, softened coat with a 60-minute classic facial ($80) or stimulate proper energy flow with a pain-relieving, 60-minute acupuncture and massage session ($80). This Groupon can also be used toward the cost of upgraded services, such as a longer massage or acupuncture treatment.
Inside Euro Nail Spa, touches of antiquity—Doric columns, a tiered fountain, and hanging European scenes—blend with the modern mainstays of television and WiFi. The pedicure chairs are sleek and contemporary, yet guests submerge their feet in a separate bowl of water and flowers in a way that evokes an ancient royal pampering. Steam and hot towels coax pores into relaxation during skincare services, many of which pair a traditional cleansing facial with an aromatic mask—such as strawberry, mint, or green tea—and a shoulder massage. Additional massages sap tension from the feet and scalp with focused kneads. At the hairstyling stations, modernity reemerges in the form of abstract art and simple black furniture. The staff trims, colors, and texturizes strands as clients sip on one of the spa's complimentary beverages: coffee, tea, or soda.
Hair removal can be a painful process—skin is left raw from harsh waxes and brows can be left almost bare after over-plucking. But at Paris Studio, clients can rest assured that a perfect arch won't come at the expense of their skin. An ancient Eastern depilation technique, threading offers tight control over target areas, eschews the use of chemicals, and won't stretch or peel the skin the way waxing does. Using a pure cotton string, the technicians loop around numerous hairs at once to quickly sweep unwanted strands before they have a chance to cry out and warn the others. Besides streamlining bulky brows, the technique can also be used to smooth larger areas including the upper lips, sideburns, and hairline.
As one of the first certified-green day spas on the peninsula, The Spa Studio keeps both its clients and the earth beautiful by reducing waste and conserving resources while carrying out a range of skincare, massage, and wellness services. During airbrush-tanning sessions, a solution infused with botanicals and antioxidants coats the skin and bronzes it over a 12-hour period, resulting in a glow that doesn’t require exposure to the sun’s harmful UV comets. The Organic Bliss facial rejuvenates skin with minerals and omega-9 nutrients, and permanent, nonlaser hair removal uses an enzyme called trypsin to prevent hair from growing back.
Inside Sola Salons, the expert threading technicians at Wind Brow Bar sharpen and reshape eyebrows and de-fuzz faces and necks with safe, effecting threading techniques. Threading, a hair removal method in practice for more than 1,000 years, gently tugs out unwanted strands without the use of harsh chemicals or heartless eviction notices. Instead, threading technicians twist a loop of pure cotton thread and zip the twisted point along eye brow edges, upper lips, jaws, and other areas, which evicts hair by the roots so quickly that discomfort is minimized.
