The treatment menu at Sun Spa enables clients to select their preferred method of tanning from a roster that includes six levels of UV tanning beds and the UV-free VersaSpa system. Inside each of the five locations, Sun Spa's bronzing booths remain available 24 hours a day, presenting patrons with the opportunity to work around unorthodox schedules or warm up after bone-chilling nightmares. A selection of lotions by Australian Gold augments the effects of light-powered tanning excursions, and a storefront display of swimwear and handmade jewelry complement newly golden glows.
Spa Revival’s licensed therapist unties knotted muscles and tucks latent tension into bed with tailored massages that knead away pain in one of four modalities. In a 60-minute session, the muscle-soothing maestro can unleash flowing Swedish strokes to improve oxygen flow or draw on the intensities of localized pressure-point therapy to alleviate pains incurred in crab-walking competitions. The stretching motions of a sports massage specifically target areas injured in athletic activities, nursing strained muscles back to health and potentially curtailing recovery time. With their doctor’s written approval, ladies past 12 weeks of pregnancy can indulge in a prenatal massage that relaxes tense muscles and counteracts the damage done to wombs by incubating prize-fighters.
The old saying goes something like this—if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime. It’s that line of thinking that drives the spa technicians at Jubils Salon & Day Spa. As they perform aesthetic services that range from haircuts to facials and massage, they strive to enlighten their clients with tips on how to better care for their skin, hair, and nails. Armed with these techniques, clients can then improve their at-home skincare regimens, which previously consisted of sleeping in tubs of oatmeal and never leaving the house.
Salon Trio stylist Jillian Guyer wields hair-honing products from Redken and Aquage to tame clients' tresses and sculpt eye-catching 'dos. Jill begins each appointment with a shampoo session before transforming tufts into a client-specified look ranging from a short summer bob to a Medusian mane of sentient, serpentine locks. Once strands have been clipped, she'll enhance new 'dos with chromatic accents selected from a wide spectrum of colors, including technicolor tones such as pink and purple. Patrons can expect to emerge from Salon Trio's white-walled studio after 1.5–2 hours, depending on how much coffee the studio's scissors drank with their donuts that morning.
The Nail Lounge exudes elegance, with low-hanging chandeliers casting glows over silver chairs and wash stations with sinks complete with river rocks in the counter-top wash basin. The spa's high standards extend to the pedicure room, where guests can sink into La Fleur IV pedicure chairs equipped with a four-massage, shiatsu massage system. Meanwhile, they dunk their feet in foot spas lit by fiber-optic lighting—and featuring a pipe-free whirlpool system that ensures ultimate cleanliness.
Nail service choices range from gel polish to silk wraps or minx nails, with artificial and natural nail choices available. Pedicures are heightened by rose petal baths, honey and sugar scrubs, and invigorating mint foot soaks, to name only a few options. Along with nail care, The Nail Lounge also pampers clients with waxing services and eyelash extensions.
Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
