At Mona's Spa, the focus is on the skin. The aestheticians here use advanced techniques such as microdermabrasion and AHA and BHA peels to help rid faces of wrinkles, age spots, and dry patches. Clients can also receive shellac manicures and spa pedicures complete with foot soaks, masks, and hot towels.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
With a focus on wellness, the staff at Diamond's Garden Massage & Stress Relief promotes feelings of calm with tension-relief and pain-management treatments, as well as three types of massages. Licensed techs also tackle skin woes with body scrubs, hand treatments, and hydrating facials.

The skilled eyelash techs at Fab Your Lashes Eyelash Studio accessorize ocular awnings with lash extensions. During the two-hour session, steady hands affix Minkys semi-permanent synthetic lashes onto existing strands using medical-grade adhesive. Lashes instantly appear longer and fuller without the hassle of donning mascara, manipulating curlers, or performing eyelid squats. With proper care, peepers can toss flirtatious winks with their new optical augmentations for up to two months. Because lashes are semi-permanent, clients may engage in normal activities such as visiting the spa, swimming, or holding staring contests with the family ostrich.
