Fresh Hair nurtures elegant, eco-friendly noggin-tops, cultivating smooth, silky tendrils with organic keratin treatments and protecting the planet with water heated by solar panels. An approximately 10-minute consultation screens mops before signing them up for a full restoration job, selecting those that have been overworked by dyes and perms, exhibit natural frizz, or are tired of moonlighting as actual mops. To begin 90-minute sleeking sessions, dexterous hands section off strands for saturation with KeraGreen's gentle formula. Fortified with olive and jojoba oils, collagen, silk, and a host of other natural extracts, the formaldehyde-free serum seeps into open cuticles to repair damage and restore moisture. Nourished hair then seeks out hot kisses blown by a dryer or the warm embrace of a straightening iron to seal in the treatment, resulting in a manageable, radiant mane.
Mode Spa's staff focuses its skills in three areas, rendering massages, skincare treatments, and nail services. Their massages incorporate Western and Eastern techniques, including hot stone and reflexology. Their skincare can combat acne or remove wrinkles. With regard to nails, the team can revive dull digits with manicures and pedicures, including options for gel and French polish.
If there were a motto that defines Irina Stukalov, it would most likely be “never stop learning.” When she founded Electrolysis & Skin Care Clinic in 1993, the registered electrologist mainly focused on permanent hair removal via low-level electric currents. Since then, she’s added a few other feathers to her cap, including her aesthetician's license and her title as an intense-pulsed-light technician. She also underwent the training necessary to wield GlyMed Plus products during peels and facials designed to nourish skin with ingredients that, like tears from a robocop, are both technologically advanced and organic. Irina has also added an aesthetician and makeup artist to her team to satisfy her growing clientele.
On the tree-lined, bustling Beacon Street, a stately brownstone located at the St. Mary's T-Stop, three blocks from Fenway Park, and a 10-minute walk from the Longwood Medical area offers sanctuary from the frenetic outside world. Here, Southwest Day Spa cossets bodies and minds with more than 30 pampering spa treatments. Its lava-shell massage brushes bodies with polished shells from the Philippines that therapists have gently heated and combined with minerals, algae, salt water, and essential oils. The desert-heat body wrap, with its zinc compound, helps tone and smooth skin by scrubbing, wrapping, and then rinsing in a four-jet steam shower. The zinc compound is also an effective treatment for painful joints and muscles. Plant-stem-cell facials work to delay the appearance of aging much better than denial, and microcurrent technology fades wrinkles. Spa packages include special options for brides, couples, and those who, like NFL linebackers, just want to be pretty and pampered. Additionally, FDA-approved SmartLipo treatments take aim at stubborn fat cells, while laser hair removal banishes unwanted hair for all skin types.
Over the course of her two-decade career, makeup artist and aesthetician Robin Erb has dolled up brides for more than 150 weddings and helped her studio win praise on CBS Boston’s list of "Best Places for Eyelash Extensions." Using unique methods she learned throughout the years, she flatters clients' facial features with expertly applied makeup and skin-rejuvenating treatments. Instead of blowing really hard on strands until they fall out, she swiftly removes unwanted hair from the premises using soy-based wax, which is easy on sensitive skin. Even the wildest brows leave Robin Erb Skin Care domesticated and well-behaved after an eyebrow maintenance session, which factors in the client's face shape and features.
The cosmetic clinicians at Essentially Bare rely on a combination of lasers and pharmaceutical-grade products to correct a range of skin issues. Their Lumenis laser has cleared hair from more than 8,000 clients and a dozen former werewolves, and the Q-switched Spectra lasers can erase unwanted tattoos in half the normal amount of treatments required and in shorter intervals between treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal. Additionally, the Spectra lasers effectively target most ink colors, resulting in a significantly lightened or completely erased tattoo in a short time frame.
Before administering any treatments, staff members demonstrate their commitment to personalized care by thoroughly analyzing clients' skin. Essentially Bare also provides physician-only skin care with peels and facials featuring professional brands, such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Image Skincare, to ward off wrinkles, redness, and acne. Overall, they offer a wide variety of services such as laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, IPL photo facials, spider vein removal, and more.
