From the walls that enclose Zena Day Spa's 6,000-square-foot space, one can almost feel sun seeping from the great, rough-hewn stone blocks and murals influenced by the ancient Egyptians. Intricately woven gold speckled with authenticity-testing bite marks trims Victorian-style couches, upon which clients nip at complimentary beverages. Extremities wrapped around warm mugs or wading through luxurious carpet prepare for dips in oil, paraffin, and a warm lotion or cooling gel infused with sea salt, and beautifiers overhaul hair, nails, skin and bodies with opulent spa and salon treatments.
Organic, semipermanent makeup accentuates facial features, and bold brushstrokes paint exotic scenes behind pedicure chairs and above gleaming marble countertops. The scent of potted lilies rides waves of eucalyptus-infused steam past the strawberry-blond wooden slats that border a sauna. The spa's private showers are ideal for relaxing cleanup or tearful regrets about taking cotton candy in the shower.
Inside Zena MedSpa, medical director Dr. Cynthia Mackeyer and her staff combine science with aesthetic treatments to beautify their clients. Guests can reduce wrinkles with Botox injections, pave the way for clearer skin with medical-grade facials, and remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and tiny planets orbiting their heads with laser services. The spa also offers photofacials and houses a variety of skincare lines, including products from Epicuren. Free parking in the rear of the building ensures that cars have plenty of room when getting wiped down with moisturizer.
A Fresh Face Skin Care Clinic's aestheticians aim to eradicate stress with a lengthy, comprehensive slate of holistic-minded spa services amplified by sensory experiences. To kick off each soothing therapy, including massages, scrubs, facials, and hair-removal treatments, clients answer the Aveda Elemental Nature questionnaire, which is designed to help staff members customize treatments based on the five ayurvedic elements found in nature: infinity, air, water, fire, and earth. Like a cradle made from billowing cloud fragments, Aveda tea and a relaxing foot massage bolster each spa session.
Jennifer Corley—a licensed aesthetician and certified medical aesthetician—revitalizes clients' skin with an array of facials and specially formulated peels. Her skincare treatments combine the natural and the scientific to combat skin problems, infusing peels with ingredients such as vitamin A and acne-fighting salicylic acid, and allowing for a controlled and even shedding of dead skin layers.
