S'Criage Spa & Salon revitalizes visages with services that include facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, hair services, and eyelash extensions. The anti-aging facial begins with a thorough exfoliation of the epidermis, the skin layer most likely to be stricken with fine lines and suction-cup arrow marks. Microcurrents then delve deeper into skin, delivering gentle electric stimulation to tighten up slack muscles. In an effort to keep skin soft and shiny, cellular nano therapy saturates faces with nourishing nutrients. Clients can then relax sore limbs as a muscle maestro melts tension in the scalp, shoulders, arms, and feet. To keep mouths from blurting out secret family recipes during treatment, clients can also snack on assorted sumptuous appetizers.

Ani Miryala started learning ancient-Indian skincare techniques at an age when most people think "acne" is the misspelling of a Road-Runner plot. Surrounded by uncles who were practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine, Miryala immersed herself in the noninvasive organic methods taught at the family beauty school, eventually opening a spa with her three sisters. As Kate Hamilton of Skin Inc. magazine reported in 2008, Miryala now owns one of the largest female-operated companies in southern India and has brought time-honored Indian traditions to the United States at Anoo's Herbal Day Spa and a dozen other locations worldwide.
The aesthetician and published author has amassed a team of licensed specialists that rejuvenates minds and bodies with chemical-free treatments. Hair-removal technicians refine 80–120 eyebrows per day with signature threading services, leaving behind more clearly defined arches than a freshly poured sidewalk. Pesticide-free fruits and vegetables nourish skin during Indian facials, and natural peels and herbal-microdermabrasion techniques leave faces smooth and glowing. To combat stress, the crew massages muscles with an ancient herbal-wheat-dough method that turns muscles into soft, buttery loaves of relaxation.
Students of cosmetology, eager to hone their skills as hairstylists and registered skincare professionals, roam the studio at MCI, taking in tricks of the trade from their professional instructors. Under the watchful eye of their teachers, pupils practice their newfound skills on willing clients, who in return receive services such as haircuts, highlights, and keratin treatments at prices lower than traditional salons. In the spa, aestheticians-in-training use PCA Skin products to cleanse and exfoliate skin during European facials and three types of peels: marine enzyme, cranberry, and detox gel. They also wave microdermabrasion wands across complexions for resurfacing or minimizing wrinkles, and they customize treatments to combat everything from acne to dry, aging skin.
Clients who wish to naturally exfoliate their skin may opt for an enzyme peel, which promotes cell renewal while visibly diminishing appearances of scars, stretch marks, age spots, sun damage, and skin discoloration. Enzymes penetrate the upper layers of the tissue, cleansing pores and improving skin texture, tone, elasticity and tautness.
Linda Alfieri has been working in the hair-replacement industry for more than 30 years, but her destiny in the field was first forged even earlier. Her father, Charles Alfieri, was a renowned industry expert who developed a signature lace-front hairpiece. Now an expert in her own right, Linda has appeared on NBC 6 Miami and CBS 12 News to discuss her life-changing hair-replacement services and has worked with plastic surgeons, oncologists, and patients with alopecia and lupus.
Inside her salon, Linda and her team can custom design a kosher custom human-hair wig or recommend an appropriate salon treatment for thinning tresses. Alfieri has also created her own line of haircare products, including a silk-protein shampoo that helps rebalance the hair’s pH level and a holding spray that can help hair resist humidity and hold its favorite yoga pose for hours.
