Island Sun's staff of skin experts is devoted to the safe, customized pampering of each client's pores and pigments. In addition to offering three levels of bed tanning to facilitate totally tailored finishes ($8–$19.99 per session, many packages also available), the salon offers UV-free sprayable sun services if you prefer sun showering to sunbathing ($42–$45 per session). Spray tanning sessions at Island Sun only take 60 seconds, meaning you can get golden in less time than it takes your friends to fasten their gladiator sandals before hitting the beachside arena. The salon uses the top-of-the-line VersaSpa sunless tanning system to deliver streak-free, natural-looking results.
Corte's Medi-Spa & Salon's amiable skin soothers have been professionally preening pelts since 2003. The serenity center pacifies patrons with 30-minute customized treatments such as the Jessner peel, during which dermatologists frost flavorless frontal façades with a Betty-Crocker-approved glycolic cleanser to purge oil from pores. Skin savants then slather faces with Jessner solution, a concoction that corrals the power of resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to buff bumpy mugs. Customers quell licks of discomfort with a fan-bolstered breeze until staff neutralize the acid with warm words and remove masks with cool water. Patrons experience peeling and flaking for a week followed by pink or brown hues that eventually fade into smooth, healthy-looking skin.
Softouch Permanent Makeup uses the finest beauty products to restore visages to prelapsarian levels of smoothness and radiance. In the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of fine particles gently dislodges the outermost layer of tired, sulky skin, giving young, untested cells the opportunity to prove themselves and finally show their parents that being a face cell is just as important and respectable as being a neuron. The procedure is effective in reducing fine lines, blemishes, and sun damage. A repairing serum and smoothing mask are applied after the treatment to expedite the body's natural healing process, quickly eliminating the slight puffiness and soreness that accompany the treatment and helping forge skin with the uncanny smoothness and alluring glow of a phosphorescent baby shrimp.
When Lexie Delaney heard she'd gotten a job at a department-store makeup counter, she exclaimed, "Oh, thank you, Jesus, that's awesome!" Her passion and skills gave her an edge that others couldn't help but notice: she was "stealing other people's customers." This pushed Delaney to keep moving forward. When she got the opportunity to work with celebrity clients, she leapt at the chance. Now, Delaney has a celebrity and personal clientele—including Miss Louisiana and Miss Teen Louisiana—that rely on her to prepare for social events, photo shoots, and fashion shows. She's become so accustomed to working elaborate events that she doesn't even blink a well-groomed eye when clients ask to "look like a mask" or be styled to look like nitrogen.
