The staff at My Skin Parlour aims to provide physical and mental renewal during every massage or aesthetic appointment as trickling fountains and soft music elevate treatments to experiences for the senses. Heated massage tables play host to couples, expectant mothers, and those who carry friends around in fanny packs as therapists coax pain and tension from backs and shoulders. Licensed aestheticians help skin appear more radiant with a slate of facials and four-layer face-lifts, which tighten and lighten the skin through nourishing doses of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and active enzymes. Rounding out the center?s talents, makeup artists accentuate features with Mary Kay cosmetics and lash extensions, and manicurists add a glossy pop to each digit with luxury manicures and pedicures.
Beauty Labs, Inc. is the collaboration of founder Shirley Sanford, a medical aesthetician with nearly 30 years of experience, and medical director Thao Nguyen, a board-certified medical doctor. Their menu of clinical-grade services ranges from eyelash extensions to removal of moles and mattress tags clinging to the face. They use lasers and cosmetic lamps to resurface skin or remove unwanted hair, and injectables and chemical peels to restore youthful looks.
Dr. Nguyen believes that beauty is most pronounced when it wells up from the inside. Beyond performing cosmetic procedures, she offers to counsel clients in eating well and coping with emotional stress, which can ravage the epidermis.
Part salon and part spa, The Total Package staff weaves myriad body-beautifying services into its comprehensive aesthetic offerings. Stylists twist and turn hair into braids and updos or straighten and color locks with chemical procedures. Aestheticians turn their trained eyes to the body’s finer details by waxing away unwanted hair or tending to wrinkles and pores with rejuvenating facials or spare Halloween masks. For nails, technicians are also on hand to manicure and polish each digit until it shines.
A table of manicure stations sits directly opposite the row of padded pedicure chairs at Simply Nails by Lisa, establishing the salon’s almost singular commitment to reinvigorating spa services for the hands and feet. In addition to trimming nails and applying vibrant coats of polish, the staff members also pamper their clients with treatments such as towel wraps, hot-lotion massages, and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs. As the nail techs gussy up digits, the salon’s aestheticians cater to a variety of cosmetic concerns with facials designed to smoothen skin and waxing treatments that leave chosen body areas as hairless as a sasquatch who lost a bet.
Licensed aesthetician Katy Brassfield uses all of the resources at her disposal to make sure each client achieves the paramount level of pampering. She approaches each service armed with more than 12 years of experience while beautifying her clients? skin with facials, peels, and other skincare services. Her treatment rooms are warmed with brown and gold tones, and her complimentary mugs of steaming tea allow clients to slip into a state of inner peace even as they wait. During skincare and waxing sessions, she turns the dial up on a table warmer to keeps clients as toasty and cozy as a kitten napping on the belly of a napping labrador.
For more than 15 years, aesthetician Angela Caravalho has been helping teens clear their complexions and assisting adults in their ongoing quest to maintain a smooth, youthful visage. During facials, organic, oxygen-based Knutek products deliver bacteria-fighting and blemish-belittling oxygen plasma to the skin, helping conquer acne and acne rosacea. Microdermabrasion sweeps away facial debris and donut crumbs with help from a light vacuum massage, and Angela can also help cart away excess cellulite through treatments that may include specially designed bodysuits and light therapy.
