Amai Day Spa’s staff specializes in a dizzying variety of aesthetic services, allowing clients to slip into a fuzzy robe and pad from technologically enhanced facial treatments to ancient reflexology sessions to precise henna-tattoo applications in a matter of minutes. A stable of licensed massage therapists stand by to deliver aromatherapy, hot-stone, and four-handed massages, and aestheticians provide traditional and luxury facials that enhance complexions with caviar, LED light, or bedtime stories about lotion-breathing dragons. Once they leave their private treatment rooms, clients can head to the lobby to discover a wealth of tools to maintain healthy skin at home, including designer products such as Skin Ceuticals and Pevonia Botanica.
The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.
Aesthetician Suzan Tajer started Ancient Secrets of Beauty in 1991, and over the years, she's specialized in two types of treatments: waxing and Lipomassage. The latter treatment attempts to fight cellulite with vacuum suction and two rollers that fold and unfold the skin. When it comes to waxing, Suzan can shape brows, erase unwanted mustaches, and make arms and legs so smooth and aerodynamic that clients accidentally take flight.
Her true specialty, however, is Brazilian waxing. Suzan saw the trend approaching way back when she opened her salon, and immediately she started developing her own techniques. Today, Suzan's quick Brazilian treatments shun strip waxing techniques in favor of wax that shrink-wraps around the hair as it dries. Her Brazilian waxing techniques have earned her a number of mentions in both local and national magazines, such as Allure and The Premier Seattle Monthly.
After serving in the United States Air Force for nine years, co-owner Jaymie Larsen decided to pursue a career that would allow her to reclaim her feminine side and indulge her passion for beauty. After graduating from the Euro Institute of Skin Care, she dove into a lash-extension course and knew she wanted to open a business where she could concentrate on building better blinks for eyes of all shapes and sizes.
At the same time, aesthetician and fellow Euro Institute graduate Athena Nazarian was gaining experience working as a consultant for Christian Dior and honing her skills at a Pro Sports Club spa, where she specialized in medical skincare treatments, makeup, waxing, and eyelash extensions. After opening her own lash boutique, Lashes by Athena, she soon found herself with more clients than she could handle, leading her to partner with Jaymie on a brand new venture.
Today at Eye Candy, the duo combine their attention-getting expertise to plump up lash lines with synthetic strands that are naturally curved to mimic the natural lashes. They also foster smoother skin with 30-minute Jessner peels and facial waxing, flatter features with professional makeup, and even lead lessons for makeup novices or those raised by clowns.
The technicians at Longevity Medical Clinic's aesthetics division, BellaMedica, foster a relaxed environment, helping clients achieve beauty goals by creating an individualized treatment plan from a variety of services, from Botox to laser hair removal.
