She uses Matrix Logics Color DNA System products, a coloring line blended with conditioning polymers, silicone, and follicle-strengthening protein shakes. Aestheticians glide around private treatment rooms using Repêchage skincare products that combine vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to help normalize skin and combat signs of aging.

Licensed aesthetician Yvonne Harper scrapes away blemishes using a mechanical exfoliation wand during a series of 45-minute microdermabrasion treatments. During the treatment, aluminum-oxide crystal particles burnish the face's surface to remove outer layers of skin and reveal the healthier, more active skin cells drinking whey protein underneath. A diamond-tip polish then regulates texture across the face, resulting in smoother, more luminous skin. The procedure stimulates the collagen and elastin production that can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles and firm up sagging skin around the jaw, eyes, and nose. As patients undergo their multi-session treatment courses, sun damage and blemishes gradually fade from view, revealing complexions as even as a pillow fight between two black belts. Yvonne recommends scheduling treatments once a week. Check the FAQ for information on preparation and post-treatment care.
The expression experts at Facelogic are dedicated to refreshing dermises and promoting beauty that is skin deep. An hour of exfoliating microdermabrasion evicts deadbeat skin cells squatting beneath the dermal surface and boosts collagen production in the process. This noninvasive treatment improves the skin’s density and firmness and diminishes the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and unsightly wrinkles. Afterward, skin will appear brighter, clearer, and softer, undoing years of squishing it and playing the MMORPG known as real life. Once facial walls have been refinished, an eyebrow waxing renovates ocular archways to match. Forehead caterpillars are lovingly trimmed, shaping the face and upping the punching power of a suggestively raised eyebrow.
Ojas customizes its Body in Bliss massage session to the needs of each individual client in order to drain the body's tree trunk of its stress sap. The massage technician will start by speaking with you about your aches, pains, and anxiety dreams and will then use that knowledge to set his or her hand phasers to "relax." From there, simply lie still and bliss out as your tensions are massaged, stroked, kneaded, and occasionally garotted away. Body in Bliss incorporates a serenity-enhancing blend of essential oils that massage the nose as much as the body and uses warm stones to stimulate circulation and draw deep-set tension out of the body's muscles, joints, and field of glandmines. You'll leave Ojas's premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Glamour Girls Day Spa dotes on burgeoning princesses with an array of services all set in a colorful setting with radiant, pink walls. Girls ages 2–12 waltz into the whimsically decorated spa, flouncing into a robe and flip-flops made from equal parts clouds and lamb giggles before indulging in age-appropriate treatments. Sprightly fingers and toes preen during the mini mani-pedi as experienced stylists file away rough nails and reshape cuticles. After a scented facial spruces up smiles, a makeup session transforms visages to replicate looks of their favorite fairy-tale characters, teen idols, or suffragists. Pairs also relax as tresses levitate in simple up-dos or weave together into partial braids.
Chris Nicholson Salon and Spa combines the latest in hair services and skincare techniques with talented, experienced stylists. Masters of head-garden cultivation provide customers with a comprehensive consultation before waging war on misplaced follicles with a women’s cut ($40–$55), men’s cut ($24–$35), or kid’s cut (12 and under, $20–$30). Clients concerned about cranial coloring can mitigate fears with a one-step color ($50–$75) or a new set of highlights ($75 and up). After a shampoo and blow-dry ($25–$30), customers can wander over to the skin section, where a stylist will perform a skin analysis and offer a treatment recommendation such as a 75-minute signature spa facial ($95) or a 30-minute natural skin peel ($50). All skin treatments include neck, shoulder, face, and hand massages, but for those who require further manipulation, massage therapy is available in 30-minute ($50), 60-minute ($75), and 90-minute ($100) increments.
