During the 50-minute signature European facial, a professional aesthetician at R. J. West first deep-cleans pores to rid them of sebum deposits. Steam then rolls over faces, like a hot cloud licking a zeppelin, to open pores before an exfoliation gently sloughs off dead skin cells to brighten dermises and stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production. A slathering of custom aromatic cream wafts a bouquet of relaxing fragrances into nostrils while dexterous hands knead the sinewy tendons of the hands and neck, relieving tension and loosening overly tight marionette strings.

Your treatment is designed specifically for your unique needs.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
The philosophy at Sinequanon is holism. It is a place to be nutured with the hope that the treatments have long-lasting benefits or can act as a catalyst for balance in your life.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I only use therapeutic-grade essential oils that have medicinal value. All my massage oils are natural with no preservatives, alcohol or petrols. My Ayurvedic oils are made in India where they are infused with medicinal herbs.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person's health and well-being. Massage therapy is particularly effective for chronic pain and stress, as well as preventative maintenance in athletes.
Overseen by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elliott Duboys, Embrace MediSpa's team can remove stubborn hair with laser hair removal. But the team's specialty is surgical and nonsurgical anti-aging procedures. Licensed aestheticians perform IPL photofacials to minimize signs of aging caused by UV rays, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating complexions; dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane, meanwhile, reduce the appearance of wrinkles via injection. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels round out the selection of beauty services.
The specialists as The Lash & Beauty Studio redouble their skin-sustaining mission with microdermabrasion treatments, custom facials, and shellacking the body for preservation. The spa also employs a certified eyelash technician who creates dramatic looks with synthetic and mink lash applications.

Although hair is still the focus?stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking?the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services.
