Nail nurturers at Fashion Nails & Spa restore paws’ sense of pride with pampering mani-pedi services that shape and shine. Technicians smooth ragged edges, revealing renewed contours and retractable claws. Soothing cuticle care calms anxious nails, and a relaxing massage releases stress built up after learning one too many secret handshakes. An exfoliating pumice scrub banishes calluses from footprints, followed by a moisturizing mango massage. Warm towels and carefully placed hot stones nurture foot flexibility, their radiant heat slackening tight tendons to prep tootsies for hoofing around town or winning the luau’s coal-walking contest. Once soothed and smoothed, fingers and toes can opt for a natural look with buffing or cloak themselves in rainbow threads with colored polish. Today’s deal can also be applied toward upgraded services such as a french manicure ($3 additional).
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
At Rumors Inc. at Sugar Lou Salon, stylist Karen Rivera brings 25 years of hairstyling experience to each cut and color service. Whether a client wants a conventional look or a creative style, she tailors a 'do to meet their specifications, using knowledge of current trends and training from continuing-education classes hosted in cultural hot spots such as New York and London.
Dr. Sherri Casey and Dr. Buddy Terral banish blemishes from epidermal homes with facial procedures, peels, and laser hair-removal treatments. The medical professionals stimulate collagen production and combat the effects of aging using a variety of procedures such as microdermabrasion, Restylane and Radiesse injections, and Botox to smooth away frown lines brought on by the stress of work or remembering to blink exactly four times per minute. The clinic’s HydraFacials clear away dead skin cells and lavish the newly uncovered surfaces with moisturizing serums, while lactic and glycolic peels brush away web-like fine lines.
The aestheticians at SpaRinity know that if we don't put harsh chemicals in our bodies, it makes no sense to put them on our skin. That's why they rely on Image and Pevonia skincare products during each of their facials, chemical peels, and back treatments. These products eschew all chemical preservatives and parabens in favor of gentle, nutrient-rich botanicals, boosting skin's health, glow, and texture.
TLC Med-Spa spruces up lackluster skinscapes with an array of laser- therapy services. Sport a set of flaw-free gams with a vein- therapy session, which reduces the appearance of spider veins by heating the offending blood ducts until their eventual, critically acclaimed demise. The 15- to 30-minute procedure yields little to no irritation, requires little to no downtime, and reveals an unblemished, even surface in one to three treatments, perfect for shelf mounting or public movie projections.
