"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. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.

At Elizabeth Esthetics and Massage, cosmeceuticals by Rhonda Allison line the shelves, and issues of Vogue and Architectural Digest are splayed across tables. These artifacts point to the fact that owner Elizabeth Sampson applies a scientific yet creative mindset when embarking on skincare treatments and massages.

Before each service, Elizabeth draws up a treatment plan that targets specific needs, from wrinkle reduction to tension relief. Then she delivers results. During the pumpkin refresher facial, she brightens skin by infusing it with antioxidants; during the deep-tissue massage, she works out concentrated tension with her elbows and thumbs. Elizabeth sees to it that every client feels comfortable during treatments. To this end, she offers complimentary beverages and answers frequently asked questions on topics such as how to pick the right massage modality and whether it's OK to drool on the face pillow.
