Walking into the main lounge of Skin Day Spa is like entering the living room of a sophisticated friend. Hardwood floors reflect sunlight onto the room's dramatic sculptural accents, chandelier, and white piano. Vintage furniture sourced via time machine adds a sense of timeless beauty, which, as it happens, is a quality also sought by the spa's technicians and stylists. In private treatment rooms—or the chic hairstyling space—these staffers administer treatments both subtle and permanent. Their range includes facials and massage as well as Botox, permanent makeup, and laser cosmetics. Chiropractors help keep clients feeling as great as they look. Some even use Skin Day Spa as a party zone, commissioning custom packages that include catering and group services.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have long been a strong advocate for taking a holistic approach to addressing issues such as unwanted fat and cellulite. I have been a health and wellness consultant for over six years and decided to incorporate services that would complement the methods I suggest. I was introduced to the ultrasonic cavitation procedure approximately two years ago by a spa owner who has successfully provided the services in the six spas that she owned. After seeing the impressive results of the treatments, I decided to incorporate it into my services.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
At a client's initial first visit, they are given an assessment form to complete along with an information and disclosure form. The assessment allows them to provide information about their history of treatments, the current challenges they are having, and their lifestyle habits (i.e., diet, exercise, etc.). The information and disclosure form informs them of the procedure—exactly what is involved and what to expect. We then go over this information so that the client is fully abreast and knows exactly what to expect so there are no surprises.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
As an added bonus, every client will receive a personalized consultation based on the assessment form which will include any suggestions for modifications in diet, exercise, and body detoxification. Each client is also provided a complimentary Wellness Guide packed with tips on how to maximize the results they will receive from the treatment.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
I provide several services that address the issue of unwanted fat and cellulite, and my favorite would probably be the herbal detox and fat-reduction body wrap. The effect of the wrap totally relaxes my client and they are able to experience not only the benefits of the detox process but also immediate inch loss that can be further enhanced by the ultrasonic lipo treatment.

Spa Boutique's services beautify clients from head to toe. The staff offers facials, body wraps, and microdermabrasion treatments for skin; brow tinting and lash extensions for eyes; laser whitening for teeth; and exfoliation treatments for hands and feet. For further pampering, clients can schedule a Swedish, sports, pregnancy, or toning massage.
Nestled amid consignment shops and antique stores in a historic Victorian neighborhood, Heights Retreat harnesses aromatherapy and therapeutic oils to bolster manicures and pedicures performed in massaging chairs, while seven kinds of body massage use a tailored approach to pinpoint aches and pains. Medically focused facials help alleviate conditions such as acne and rosacea using gentle peels, galvanic stimulation, and miniature steamrollers.
A glowing complexion. A vivid new hair color. A set of neatly shaped eyebrows. The beauticians at La Paz Day Spa & Salon create all of these and much more at a welcoming studio highlighted by Aztec-inspired decor. Aestheticians perform nine different facials while stylists revive hair with color treatments and cuts. Inside La Paz's private treatment rooms, waxing technicians remove hair from the body, leaving skin smoother than a buttered saxophone.
In a sunny studio with sherbet-toned walls and a picture of Audrey Hepburn in a sun hat, Lauren happily spends her time meticulously attaching synthetic or mink lash extensions to her client's existing lashes. When she's done, her clients could rival Audrey herself with their thicker, more curled eyelashes. She can also add in colored or glitter lashes for a glamorous night out, and clients can return regularly for refills to keep everyday lashes full.
In addition to eyelash extensions, Lashes by Lauren offers permanent makeup for eyes and lips, which makes it easier to look great during a part-time job in the local dunk tank. Clients can also pamper themselves with facials that include acupressure massage and a specialty mask or stop by for beauty maintenance services such as waxing, manicures, and pedicures.
