CloudMover Day Spa's team of aestheticians and massage therapists dole out relaxation-inspiring treatments that earned the title of Best Day Spa in 2010 and 2012 and Best Massage in 2011 from CityVoter. These bodywork experts keep the musculoskeletal system soothed with nine different modalities in five massage rooms, including a couples room. In addition to massage rooms, CloudMover Day Spa also features three skincare rooms, shower room, infrared sauna room, laundry room, and quiet room. The spa's aestheticians focus on reshaping skinscapes with infrared treatments and customized facials, full body waxing, and exfoliating body scrubs infused with brown sugar, citrus, or ayurvedic sea salts. In addition to the Dermalogica and Relax & Wax products used in its services, CloudMover has its own line of spa items, including customized masks, scented eye pillows, and dye-free aromatherapy soy candles lauded by exhausted worker bees.
Under the directing eye of board-certified internist Pankaj Karan, MD, the staff at Valley Aesthetics and Laser orchestrate an array of cosmetic services, including Botox injections, SmartLipo procedures, and Zerona body-contouring treatments. They use Fotona Dualis XS and XP Max lasers to zap spider veins, body hair, and toenail fungus and to decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Additionally, products from SkinMedica stealthily glaze across complexions to mount a surprise attack on unsuspecting acne.
Cherry-oak wood stretches across the facility's floor, including beneath the treatment rooms' bright-yellow chairs and the waiting area's brown leather chairs and flat-screen TVs.
You might think Dr. Diana Nguyen was a relationship counselor, given her ability to foster harmony between patients and their mirrors. At Better Aesthetics MedSpa, she uses her expertise as a board-certified physician and experience with anti-aging treatments to change how patients feel about themselves.
Together with vice president and co-owner Sherry Hill, a doctor of chiropractic and registered nurse, Dr. Nguyen administers Botox and dermal fillers to combat wrinkles. The duo also transforms bodies from the inside out with medically supervised HCG weight-loss programs and detoxifying infrared-sauna sessions. The med spa's reception area boasts a clean, modern vibe with hardwood floors, white, Roman-style columns, and a white statue reminiscent of Aphrodite, the ancient goddess of microdermabrasion.
The body's largest organ is the focus of all the treatments at Healthy Beautiful Skin & Tan, be it plagued with acne and clogged pores or just in need of a tan. Under the leadership of Aesthetician and Owner Sarah Damico, a team of skin experts busily cater to their clients' specifications. Spray-tan technicians deploy custom glows with airbrush tools full of distilled sunbeams, aestheticians exfoliate with peels and microdermabrasion treatments, and makeup artists tint brows. To remove body hair, the crew specializes in classic waxing treatments as well as sugaring, a process that uses an organic paste to gently remove hair without using strips.
Sugaring is an ancient hair-removal technique practiced widely in the Middle East, and at Skin So Sweet, owner Catherine Kooiman brings it to U.S. soil. In an interview with Coast magazine, Kooiman traced the practice to Cleopatra's day. At Skin So Sweet, beauty professionals use the all-natural substance to remove hair from any area of the body, yielding results that last significantly longer than shaving. True to Skin So Sweet's commitment to using natural ingredients, the company incorporates a signature line of products—free of paraben and laurel sulfates—into vitamin-packed facials and other beauty treatments.
