Botox gives the muscles holding wrinkles in place a much-needed rest and irons out the brow, frown lines, cows’ feet, or crows’ feet with an FDA-approved injection. The procedure is performed by Dr. Jason Riehs, MD, Le Beau Visage's on-site full-time physician. The near-immediate results come in the form of a smooth finish and youthful aura. For exemplary results, check out some before-and-after shots here or just think about what a shirt looks like after it’s been ironed. Patients will emerge from the clinic sporting a brand-new, youthful appearance, complete with that new-face smell.
The microbuff body scrub exfoliates skin with gentle solutions, employing lactic and alpha-hydroxy acids while miniscule granules navigate porous surfaces to remove dirt from facial features. Then, hot towels swaddle soul sacks to remove any excess product, and a layer of body butter is applied, polishing skin and leaving it as soft and supple as a velvet poster of a well-ripened peach.
The aestheticians at Pamper Me Services help clients look and feel their best with treatments for the face, toes, and just about everything in between. Table lamps splash warm lighting across the spa’s walls, illuminating paintings that calm clients’ nerves even before they reach their private treatment rooms. In these rooms, technicians buff nails and scrub feet during pedicures with names such as “Petite” and “Give Me All You Got.” Five different massage modalities dissipate stress and tension in muscles, which may come in handy after posing for hours in a bronze-sculpture garden after a body polish and airbrush tan.
There is no perfect box that everyone fits into. That is why the aestheticians, beauty experts, and massage therapists at MakeUp By Sparkle Cosmetics & Spa specialize in customizing treatments. They offer makeup applications and lessons to make each client look distinctive and feel beautiful far beyond their time at the spa. They also combat dry, oily, and acne-ridden skin with specially chosen masks and serums. Massages combine a variety of techniques—including Swedish and hot stone—to tend to everything from stiff necks to fatigue to triple-knotted muscles.
Owner and head stylist Michelle Black opened BodyWorks Salon & Spa in order to pamper clients with expert salon services. She and her team of stylists revamp hair with custom cuts and products from Redken and Paul Mitchell Tea Tree, whose citrus and lavender-mint scents nourish scalps and attract local wildlife. With more than 30 years of experience between them, the trained aestheticians perform a multitude of services to keep clients looking good.
At No.7 Salon and Spa, a fleet of stylists and aestheticians lavish hair and nails with time, attention, and artistry. The stylists shear locks before adding highlights or shifting overall color to a summery blond, a deep black, or a green that camouflages heads amid forest foliage. They can also banish frizz with smoothing treatments or add life with curls. The salon’s nail technicians take over to adorn fingers with OPI polish, and skincare professionals tackle blemishes with facials incorporating vitamin C and banish unwanted fuzz with waxing. Clients in need of even more relaxation can visit the spa’s massage therapists, who knead away stress with the gliding strokes of Swedish massage or focus on chronic pain with deep-tissue massage.
