Trendz the salon spa owner Alana Ficco holds licensing in nail care, skincare, management, and teaching, all of which qualifies her to lead a team of beauty professionals who groom nails, knead out tension, and cleanse skin. Perhaps a particular highlight of the team's service menu is the wide range of body treatments; there are a dozen distinct masks and wraps, including a cocoa bean scrub and a Caribbean therapy treatment infused with the Aveda skincare products the spa favors.
The spa also hosts a beauty boutique stocked with jewelry, shoes, and handbags. The boutique's bath bombs allow guests to indulge at home, and its supply of soaps that look like cupcakes thwarts people who make a living selling stolen desserts to the mafia.
Like any special-effects company, Derm FX specializes in seemingly impossible transformations. Their effects, however, are meant to be tangible and lasting. The med spa uses technology such as an Eclipse Q Switch laser to repair the skin and remove troublesome blemishes, even if they happen to be tattoos. They also administer chemical peels and collagen-induction therapy, both of which aim to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and other signs of damage. Though the majority of their services are geared toward fading unwanted imperfections, the staff also augments appearances with permanent makeup.
Technicians at Sun Savvy Sunless Tanning custom blend Evolv tanning solutions for each client according to color preference and skin type. They also use heated airbrush machines to make the spray-tanning session as comfortable as possible.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries—Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Bella Dente cosmetic experts revivify patrons with tanning and teeth-whitening treatments. Technicians brighten smiles from two to eight shades with Beaming White's two-pronged whitening attack, which pairs hydrogen peroxide gels with an LED light that activates the gel’s whitening ingredients. Patrons can also sun-kiss bodies sunlessly by stepping into a VersaSpa tanning booth.
The skincare specialists at Sweetest Lounge shower epidermises with UV-free bronzer, red light, and vitamin-enriched liquid. To create a streak-free, sun-kissed glow, a certified spray-tan tech, armed with an Infinity Sun machine, carefully spritzs a customized solution evenly across bods. Clients can wear any amount of clothing during the airbrush session, baring all for a line-free tan, or baring only midriff for a farmer's tan. The UV-free tanning elixir nourishes the skin with a walnut-extract base, botanicals, and antioxidants that help to preserve color for 7–10 days. Patrons allergic to nuts can opt for the clear-tan option, which encases epidermises with a faux tanning solution sans the walnut base or cosmetic bronzer.
