Total Tan offers all-season solutions for transforming dull dermises into blissfully sun-kissed skin suits. For traditional bed and booth tanning, choose from a radiant array of artificial, cleanly sun pods to build your glow from palest amber to Midas-pawed gold. Or heat-shy coloration seekers may prefer UV-free Mystic spray tanning, which blankets the body in a fine mist to achieve effortless bronzing.
Not only do Good to Glow’s tanning artists mist clients in a natural-looking golden hue, they do it with an all-natural, organic solution. It’s also gluten- and paraben-free, while their signature, skin-nourishing Glam Tans can also help fight signs of aging or create slimmer appearances. Besides coating figures in-studio, the team hosts on-site spray tanning parties, as well, replete with champagne and rock candy, ideal for bridal showers and private parties.
At Synergy Salon & Spa, aesthetician Victoria Rebmann tends to her clients' expressions with facial services that range from emphasizing natural ingredients to using scientifically based chemical solutions. The express facial slides neatly into packed schedules and lunch breaks, carving out a petite oasis of pampering by cleansing and exfoliating the visage in just 30 minutes. Victoria customizes the fundamental facial to address each face's tone, blemishes, and unsolved sudoku tattoos. During the treatment, Rebmann executes deeper exfoliation and cleansing than in the express service, taking a full hour to polish kissers to a fine sheen.
Aesthetician Jennifer DiFiore pampers patrons with waxing, anti-aging indulgences, and skincare treatments that use natural Pevonia Botanica products. Turn face caterpillars into exclamation points with a brow wax ($12), or remove rogue bristles from a bikini line ($35). The mini deep-cleansing facial ($40) deeply cleans and exfoliates dull dermises before steam from a tableside train rolls over visages to prep skin for extractions and a custom mask.
Green Spa's staff puts equal emphasis on traditional Western spa treatments and more alternative, holistic services that blend energy work with massage. The spa services include six massage modalities including shiatsu, Swedish, and Thai massage styles. Other body treatments employ herbal mud and organic sugar scrubs to tone, detoxify, and candy skin. Registered nurse Joei Marie Lucey helms the holistic branch of services, using medical know-how alongside her belief that "the body can heal itself," she says. In addition to energy therapies and nutritional counseling, the nurse can recommend organic beauty products and organic Vemma supplements to clients for what she calls "beauty from the inside."
Featured on WKBW Channel 7, the natural-spa services at Preeti’s Organic Spa range from organic facials to herbal massages, many of which are powered by natural products from Christine Valmy. The spa offers a number of high-end treatments, including facials blended with 24-karat gold, silver, pearl, and chocolate mix-ins. The beauty haven also ousts unwanted fuzz with waxing or threading methods and embellishes hands and feet with intricate henna designs that are often seen as tokens of good fortune during weddings or barrel rides over Niagara Falls.
