While most beauticians stake out one facet of the beauty world to call their own, Sandra Evans has spent her 20-plus years in the industry as an aesthetician, nail technician, eyelash extensionist, permanent makeup artist, and waxer. From her station in Chez La Femme Salon, she shares her vast beauty knowledge with her clients. Here, Sandra uses the latest equipment, such as microcurrent and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, to ward of wrinkles, and traditional and permanent makeup to highlight facial features. When it comes to clients? nails, Sandra turns to her tool kit, which is filled with shellac polishes, therapeutic paraffin wax, and a bunch of leftover parts from an IKEA dresser that don't seem to go anywhere.
The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
Dalia Arent writes on Hair by Dali at Liquid Salon and Spa's Facebook page that being a stylist is "being a friend, a mentor, and a little bit of a fairy godmother." This is especially the case when she preps ladies for proms and weddings by giving them sophisticated up-dos, glamorous makeup, and evil stepmothers to defy. While she sculpts manes with products by Redken and Moroccanoil, Dalia works alongside other beauty experts at Liquid Salon and Spa. Drop by the 3,000-square-foot spa to receive skin treatments ranging from facials to Botox.

The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness.

One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
