At Tan Alaska, four different levels of tanning beds wait ready to bronze the skin of patient tanners. Specialized tanning lotions aid in this process, some with ingredients of caffeine, or hemp. Meanwhile, spray tans eschew the sun for quick, easy tanning, while hot tubs await, water bubbling, for relaxing jaunts away from the harsh colds of winter.
Cutting Crew's aestheticians and stylists tap into their bountiful reserves of beautifying knowledge to outfit clients with attention-grabbing radiance. A one-hour microdermabrasion spa facial alleviates faces of dead skin cells, which may lead to skin looking younger and customers being carded while trying to get into PG-13 movies. A set of mini lash extensions lures admiring looks from onlookers and eliminates the need for customers to dip their lashes in neighborhood tar pits. For thicker lashes, this Groupon can be applied toward the cost of a full set (an additional $75). Cutting Crew applies professional salon products specified to each individual's needs, including brands such as Redken, Nioxin, and Pureology.
Cura Novo proprietor Natha Thompson beautifies faces and bodies in tranquil, private settings at both D'Vons Salon & Day Spa in Eagle River and Envy Salon Studio in Wasilla. Using all-natural Cosmedix products, she can work to correct brown spots and other skin complaints or perform soothing relaxation facials. She can also add lash extensions one by one to enhance eyes, or keep their skin surfaces smooth via waxing treatments.
Lasercare Tattoo Removal's certified laser specialists erase tattoos from the inside out using Quanta lasers that break down ink without damaging the skin. Once ink particles have been broken down into smaller fragments, the body gradually eliminates them through natural processes and relentless teasing. Zimmer Cryo cooling technology keeps skin comfortable throughout treatments.
Nail painting has been a respected art form ever since Leonardo da Vinci sketched his rough draft of the Sistine Chapel ceiling on his thumbnail. The beauticians at Tantrix Nails & Spa continue this tradition of artistic expression with a nail-centric roster of spa services. Staff members outfit fingertips with overlays, acrylics, and gels in colorful palettes to create creative, quirky, and flirty nail designs to clients' specifications. The boutique staff adds hot-stone massages to signature mani-pedis and uses tanning beds to give a bronze accent to fine nail work or faded pennies.
At Prescriptive Facial Aesthetics, a slate of clinical skincare treatments forms an umbrella of care over problematic complexions. A family nurse practitioner or licensed aesthetician incorporates glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids into custom blends for chemical peels, which join diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments to draw out rosy color, diminish blemishes, and soften fine facial lines that attempt to resemble their bearer's spirit animal. Obagi and PCA products add nourishing ingredients to the skincare treatments, and Juvéderm and Botox injections leave faces smooth and youthful.
