Licensed aesthetician L. Marie Gazzana takes great pride in offering her clients cutting-edge beauty treatments. But it was her personal quest for self-improvement that led her to adopt one of her spa's most popular treatments: the infrared body wrap. After giving birth to twin boys, the busy working mother searched near and far for a treatment that could help her ditch the baby weight without compromising what little free time she had. She decided to give infrared body wraps a try, and after losing 51 pounds and gaining loads of new energy, she decided to share the service with her clients.
At L Marie's Bare Elegance, newly svelte physiques can also find further enhancement with a menu of facials, eyelash extensions, and full-body waxing services, which includes several options tailored exclusively to men. Putting her customers' needs first, L Marie provides access to a full service spa, with two showers and a sauna, where clients may take showers or play with spa toys before their scheduled service, and offers after-hours appointments by request.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
The aestheticians and laser technicians at Olena's Day Spa, in business for nine years, work seven days a week to help boost beauty and confidence with a diverse palette of services. The skilled staffers tend to façades with European, micro-current, and gentlemen's facials and apply permanent makeup to enhance good looks. Trained and certified technicians remove unwanted hair from body parts by wielding Candela and Cutera lasers and answer questions about the treatment, debunking urban legends that the lasers will not cause x-ray vision.
Before spa or salon sessions, clients can admire the framed, pastel-hued artwork lining the walls in the waiting area, where cushioned leather couches prevent discomfort and coffee tables prove that you can make a table out of a liquid.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada, gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
The trained staff at Tan Las Vegas helps clients navigate three levels of UV beds and several spray-tanning options to craft a bronzing regime that best suits their skin type and desired results. UV tanning allows clients to build a base or maintain an existing tan in 12, 15, or 20 minutes. Automated VersaSpa booths alternate pigmented mists with drying jets to build a golden glow in less than one minute, with results that last for seven days—or longer if encased in amber. Technicians can also apply custom shades by hand with an airbrush system, which imparts a natural-looking, streak-free color that flatters bodily contours.
