Eco Chic Salon and Spa's aestheticians target, treat, and transform facial imperfections with paraben-free Image Skincare facial peels. Image-enhancing sessions begin with an in-depth consultation as the aesthetician examines skin tone, texture, and trouble spots to devise the ideal treatment regimen. An application of the pelt-polishing concoction ousts expired skin cells and enhances rundown facial neighborhoods with firming collagen and tiny lawn flamingos. Lines are lightened, sun spots are subdued, and acne scars are allayed with each peel; the series of three forges a toned and tightened visage that flaunts a youthful glow.
With the no-chip manicure, a stylist paints nails with successive layers of a gel that, when exposed to UV light, becomes harder than performing calculus on a diamond. Once applied and treated, this glistering coating can only be removed by soaking in a hot tub of acetone or by a skilled micro-Zambonist. Nothing complements a nice set of nails like a nice set of face. Heaven's airbrush sharpshooters will spray on a pristine, even foundation while using the most plush, sumptuous mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and barbecue sauces to enhance each individual's look. Use your newly accentuated façade to slay with one sexy glance or get out of speeding tickets.
