Smoother, healthier skin is the goal of every treatment at Threading Studio and Spa. The salon's aestheticians skillfully remove unwanted hair with dollops of warm wax or loops of thread, which they twist and roll over the skin. Waxing sessions allow for quick hair removal over larger spans of skin, while the threading technique allows aestheticians to remove even the finest hairs from upper lips, or to shape brows with precision. The aestheticians also fight blemishes, fine lines, and other skin issues with Dermologica skincare products.
Three aestheticians, a massage therapist, a threading artist, three treatment rooms, and a treasure-trove of paraben-free skincare products await visitors at Esthetique Facial Spa—basically, everything that’s needed to tend to all skin types. Tucked beside the Whole Foods Market on Magazine Street, Esthetique Facial Spa and its savvy staff have welcomed clients to relax and rejuvenate since 2008. Makeup lessons with artist Elise Davis help patrons master crafting fresh new looks or using tried-and-true techniques, and fertility massage aims to restore balance in the reproductive system and help break up scar tissue.
With an ancient holistic approach, Spa Zeeba uncovers each client?s natural beauty with signature services such as traditional ayurvedic facials, herbal facials, and three types of hair removal, including sugaring and the ancient practice of threading. Massage practitioners manipulate muscles with deep-tissue massages to relieve lingering pains, and Reiki experts transfer energy from their palms to help clients to heal and recharge watch batteries. Henna tattoos bring love and good fortune as they are applied to the skin in ornate patterns. Aside from pampering services, Spa Zeeba also covers bodies with clothing and jewelry from its boutique.
Torrie Jakes, owner of Jakes Aesthetics, dropped her legal career to pursue her passion for skincare and cosmetics. Performing laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels as well as other skincare treatments, she stays true to her goal of helping her clients attain glowing, youthful skin.
Corte's Medi-Spa & Salon's amiable skin soothers have been professionally preening pelts since 2003. The serenity center pacifies patrons with 30-minute customized treatments such as the Jessner peel, during which dermatologists frost flavorless frontal façades with a Betty-Crocker-approved glycolic cleanser to purge oil from pores. Skin savants then slather faces with Jessner solution, a concoction that corrals the power of resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to buff bumpy mugs. Customers quell licks of discomfort with a fan-bolstered breeze until staff neutralize the acid with warm words and remove masks with cool water. Patrons experience peeling and flaking for a week followed by pink or brown hues that eventually fade into smooth, healthy-looking skin.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
