Athos Studio's aestheticians entrust their client's skin solely to Livia Pure Skin, a line of raw, organic skincare products. The product eschews animal-based ingredients, parabens, sulfates, and gluten. So whether patrons come in for a customized signature facial or corrective treatment for acne, the professional beautifiers work gently to cleanse and soften without irritation.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Amid the whirl of scissors, blow-dryers, and curling irons inside Third Avenue Hair Studio, Vicki sets up a skin-pampering sanctuary. She slathers seaweed, chamomile, and marine-algae mineral wraps across bodies, which aim to slough off dead skin cells and unearth a glow usually seen in freshly waxed cars filled to the brim with fireflies. Her facials help evict acne and soften fine lines using clay masks and deep cleansers.
