For former Seattle Seahawks cheerleader Sequoia Leopold, lying in tanning beds was as much a part of the job description as tripping opposing players. She estimates that during her tenure on the sidelines, she tanned four times per week in a traditional UV bed, a practice that left her feeling like she was ruining her skin.
When Sequoia ultimately left the squad and opened her own tanning studio, Flawless Beauty Bars, it was a no-brainer to opt for airbrush tanning services. Instead of UV rays, she and her staff use organic tanning solutions to give skin a natural-looking bronze color. They use a similar airbrushing technique for makeup application, since the mist creates uniform coverage and doesn't leave messy-looking brush strokes.
The customized facial package at Dermavita is a skin-rejuvenating treatment completely tailored to each individual face. After an initial personal skin evaluation, the aesthetician will determine the most appropriate combination of facial treatments for each client. The 60-minute facial may include a specialized sequence of microdermabrasion, which polishes away blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and tarnish; deep pore cleansing to unpack pores' oversized purses of makeup residue, dead skin, and cookie crumbs; and a vitamin-and-collagen therapy to stimulate the living skin beneath the surface. Other treatment possibilities include an enzyme exfoliation, which removes rough, dry skin and softens the face, as well as a light chemical peel to restore your youthful appearance. A hydrating treatment locks in moisture, keeping skin soft, pliable, and luminous enough to help you read Proust in the dark, as the author intended. No matter which combination your skin requires, the customized facial aims to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin, softening lines, stimulating collagen, and treating skin damage.

The most striking thing about Effleurage Skin Care’s skin treatments is their variety. Acne facials and collagen-infusion treatments add moisture to faces, whereas ultrasonic facials use a specific frequency to smooth out fine lines and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Like the illusion that all parents understand advanced algebra, skincare must be maintained in the home, which is why the studio also sells clinical-strength creams and cleansers including USA-manufactured Image Skincare and all-natural Dermalogica products.
Klein Massage & Day Spa’s service menu is relatively succinct, but what the center does, it does well—it was nominated for Best of Citysearch in 2010 for tanning and in 2009 for couples massage. Aside from massage, Klein’s body treatments include stretch therapy, designed to help athletes prevent injury and boost performance. But the services are mostly about looking your best. Aestheticians clear skin with facials and microdermabrasion, and other staff members perform beauty treatments such as sunless tanning and lash tinting so that clients will look even more striking than if they covered two-thirds of their bodies in lipstick.
