For nearly a quarter-century, Mahelia Skin Care & Spa has devoted itself to developing highly specialized treatments designed to treat cellulite and slow down the encroachment of Father Time. For the face, they offer an extensive selection of services that includes PCA peels, microdermabrasion, and Hydrasoin—an algae-based facial that, like dating a rain cloud, keeps skin hydrated. Like the PCA peels, the Age-Defying Body Peel is a monthly treatment that whispers away wrinkles and age spots, and the other body treatments are designed to drain toxins and liquids so as to slim silhouettes. Mahelia’s aestheticians also perform a range of hair-removal services, ranging from waxing to long-lasting electrolysis treatments.
Spread across KMC Rejuveno Wellness Center's 2,300 square feet are four treatment rooms—one for nails, one for massages, and two for facials. Inside the latter, skin specialists grab Dermaquest, Murad, and Magnolia Orchid skincare products, then refine complexions with seven different facials. Spa-goers can also indulge in an aromatherapy massage in the candlelit massage room or a gel mani-pedi amid the nail room's tropical-muraled walls. Outside these rooms, crystal chandeliers glimmer over the ornate interior decor, which includes red velvet loveseats and cherubs plucking harps until Cupid retires and they get the call.
Monica Holden is grateful for two reasons: she's been able to practice massage therapy for more than 17 years, and she found a mentor in Dr. Myk Hungerford. This tenacious woman worked for half a century to train medical sports massage therapists during a time when professionalism in the field was hard to find because so few therapists carried briefcases. Monica had the great fortune of training under Dr. Hungerford at the American Institute of Massage Therapy, and now she pays it forward by presiding over a staff of certified therapists. These pros bring their massages to homes and offices, where they knead sore sinews with Swedish, deep tissue, shiatsu, and reflexology techniques.
Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
