Guided by aesthetic intuition, the technicians at Touch of Life Med Spa use scientifically refined procedures to improve their clients' skin texture and tone. A Candela laser system bombards dermal blemishes with controlled pulses of laser light energy, helping to hide the appearance of stubble, spider veins, or acne scars. Additionally, the center's chemical peels and facials can leave countenances looking as youthful and as hydrated as an ice sculpture of Dorian Gray.
La Bodeguita Meat Market encourages budding oenophiles to entertain and refine their palates during weekly wine-tasting events. Sommeliers in training can swirl, sniff, and savor unlimited samples of five preselected varietals, noting their unique flavors, aromas, and hair-dying capabilities. A maximum of 50 customers per tasting cultivates a small-group atmosphere and ensures grapes don't feel overwhelmed by the scrutiny. Although not included with this Groupon, snacks are available for purchase during the event. Call ahead to make a reservation.
An all-star team of hairstylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians reinvents beauty inside the hip and colorful Exquisite Salon & Spa. Here, red and green walls alternate with touches of sandy taupe, and big, metal storage cabinets double as mirrors. Hairstylists take their positions behind modular, black styling chairs situated right beside the space’s collection of floor-to-ceiling windows, the perfect spot for sunlight to illuminate freshly cut and colored tresses. In the nail corner, clients can sink into cushy, high-backed chairs as technicians work diligently to shape fingers and toes into uniform parabolas, all while sloughing dry skin from the hands and feet. Aestheticians, meanwhile, swathe skin with warm wax in an effort to remove unwanted fuzz or to create the world’s most lifelike wax figure.
To make Glowing Gold Tanning Spa more than just a basic tanning salon, its team of therapists and aestheticians employs an extensive collection of high-powered tanning beds and specialized spa services. Housing three levels of tanning beds and a VersaSpa automated system, the spa offers clients a selection of standup beds, reclined beds, and UV-free spray-tan systems. While some people, such as beach-goers or those playing the pie crust in this year’s pageant, may be content with just a tan, others can enjoy Glowing Gold's other offerings, such as teeth whitening, massage, waxing, and facials.
In her 20 years in the aesthetics field, Virginia Garcia has built quite a multifaceted resume. She has not only worked as a medical aesthetician and permanent-makeup artist, but also as a journalist who has written articles on the topics of nutrition and professional aesthetics. Not surprisingly then, her service menu at LunaSkin is expansive, incorporating everything from lash extensions to body-contouring treatments, including ultrasonic cavitation and herbal wraps.
She performs her longtime specialties, too, of course, with facials that often include such add-ons as radio-frequency treatments, ultrasound therapy, and buckets of glitter, as well as permanent makeup for the brows, eyes, and lips.
Unless you live with a manicurist, a stylist, and a makeup artist, it's hard to get pampered at home. That's where My Dream Hair and Nails Salon Spa comes in. The beauty hotspot treats each client to the comforts of home, such as glasses of wine, coffee, and access to free WiFi. The aestheticians then enhances each client's look with a slew of services. Patrons can tame frizzy hair with Keratin straightening treatments, add sun-kissed hues to hair with highlights, and hydrate parched strands with deep-conditioning formulas. They can also get a full set of acrylic nails, shape brows with an eyebrow wax, and draw attention to eyes with eyelash extensions.
