Spas with head-to-toe services, designer products, and aestheticians boasting experience doing makeup for Sundance films might appear too lofty to allow clients to relax. Not so with DaVinci SLC. Though staffers can do everything from whiten teeth to massage feet, a comfortable office atmosphere prevails as clients await treatments in one of several adjoining suites.
Jessica Small, the owner and founder, selected the services with an expert eye. She began her career as a hairstylist and eventually became a celebrity makeup artist, but she wasn?t quite satisfied. ?I wanted it all,? she says of her aesthetic ambitions and online tax forms? drop-down career menus. So when she teamed up with DaVinci to develop the organic laser teeth-whitening system, she was quite happy to offer the system to spas and salons worldwide. Today, Small oversees a team of stylists and aestheticians as they perform services invented or perfected by Small herself.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution?an organic plant- and mineral-based gel?to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from their smiles. To continue the process, Davinci also produces a take-home personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, an LED accelerator light, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
In a cozy alcove lit by a chandelier, overstuffed pillows prop clients up while their feet soak in a warm bath. Nearby, a nail technician leans over a set of freshly lacquered nails, and the click of a blow dryer sends a wash of warm air across a new 'do. This flurry of activity is typical of the interior of Salon Lusso—no surprise given the vast list of services available to clients, from spray tanning and perms to acrylic nail art painted with tiny likenesses of Johnny Futurepresident, an up-and-coming politician who claims to have no interest in becoming president.
The Perfect Touch aims to magnify beauty and boost guests' confidence with a wide range of aesthetic treatments. Teeth-whitening sessions, for example, use an organic hydrogen peroxide gel and LED laser light to undo the effects of years of smoking, wine drinking, or gargling with soy sauce. Gleaming, long-lasting Shellac manicures pamper and beautify hands, and epsom-salt pedicures smooth calluses with a peppermint foot scrub and lavender or cucumber lotion. Paraffin-therapy treatments are available as an add-on to help soothe dry skin and promote better circulation in the fingers and toes.
Clean carpets DRY IN ONE HOUR. Upholstery, wood and tile and grout cleaning. Minor carpet repairs and spot dyeing also available. All solutions are environmentally safe as well as for the family and pets. Every service offered is guaranteed to please!
