Primo Salon & Spa's owner, Kim, is a skin and body care expert and specializes in services like body wraps, body scrubs, and facials. Ongoing education in her field has allowed her to stay at the cutting edge of her profession, and so she encourages each of her employees to attend regular classes in their field. As a result, her team includes a platform artist for Wella, a former educator for Revlon, and a wig specialist with experience fitting custom hairpieces for cancer patients. Together, the team can tend to nearly any aesthetic need, whether it's a new haircut, a mani-pedi, a professional makeup application, or a spray tan—the latter of which is applied via airbrush, as opposed to other salons that simply send clients to a tanning dunk tank.
Sasse Nails’ appointment-only policy fits in with the salon’s overarching philosophy. Owner Kristine Koenker’s team of nail technicians take all the time they need with each customer, soaking, scrubbing, and polishing toes for a full hour without feeling rushed. The relaxed, serene atmosphere doesn’t stop there: Kristine makes sure each station has a comfortable amount of space, and a leaf-shaped mirror reflects warm, earth-toned hues meant to inspire tranquility.
As techs apply long-lasting Gelish polish or dip toes into warm paraffin wax, clients can peek through the windows and glass door that separate the nail salon from Kristine's adjacent full-service hair salon. The glass dividers open up the space visually, but keep noise to a minimum, and the quiet is only interrupted when clients express their gratitude for well-treated feet with tap-danced Morse code.
Under the direction of Dr. Scott Jenkins, a board-certified plastic surgeon, the staff at Sedona Skin Spa tends to aesthetic needs with lasers, skincare, and dermal fillers. Each staff member is certified in laser treatments that help to remove unwanted hair, resurface complexions, or tighten the skin. The well-equipped aestheticians also can perform facials, microdermabrasion, and peels using products from SkinMedica and Image Skincare. Meanwhile, a certified nurse injection specialist can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows with FDA-approved injectables. The spa now offers Visia technology services- using this service, an aesthetician is able to offer a complexion analysis in less than a minute– providing insight into the different areas of health and appearance that can be affected by natural wear and tear.
Makeup artists Jacqueline and Ashley bring their cosmetics-industry expertise to Roe Wolfe, where they consult with clients, apply makeup, and teach lessons, among other services. Ashley has designed makeup for more than 20 runway shows, including work at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York for their tastefully naughty auto-lingerie collection. Jacqueline has worked with high-end brands such as Shu Uemura and MAC. Either artist can ready clients’ faces for weddings, photo shoots, or haute security cameras. Their clean, compact storefront teems with high-end clothing, cosmetics, and accessories from brands such as Bobi, Winter Kate, and House of Harlow 1960.:m]]
Envy Skin Clinic's staff includes a team of aestheticians and nurse injectors who work to extend the appearance of youth with minimally invasive procedures. Like a successful intergalactic empire, the team lets powerful lasers do most of the dirty work, employing a variety of beams designed to whisk away hair, reduce fat, and clarify the skin's surface. If subdermal intervention is required, however, units of wrinkle-smoothing Botox and Juvederm are available to help smooth faces from the inside out.
Aesthetic Therapies delivers just that: treatments designed to improve your appearance. These treatments are performed by licensed aestheticians and supervised by medical director Dr. Scott Jenkins. Aesthetic Therapies also employs technicians licensed for teaching, laser procedures, and more. It's not surprising, then, that many of the center's services have something of a medical bent, ranging from Botox injections and electrolysis to lip augmentation and permanent makeup. However, therapeutic treatments are about more than just results; the relaxing facial includes not only exfoliation and a mask to battle blemishes but also a massage or acupressure.
