Elicia Riggi has walked a mile in the shoes of her clients. The experienced skin therapist found her passion when she found professional relief from her own skin problems. At Elicia Riggi Esthetics, inside Cut Loose Salon, she helps clients overcome their skin issues with customized facials and waxing services. She uses face mapping to help her determine the correct treatment plan, just as a mountaineer uses face mapping to determine which part of a mountain face is the nose and how many gallons of skin lotion to rub on it. The skincare expert has partnered with Dermologica and uses pure, PH-balanced water in all of her treatments. Riggi is also a certified massage therapist and uses this skill to knead away tension with Swedish massage therapy or simply to add a relaxing supplement to facials.
No acne, wrinkle, or enlarged pore gets by aesthetician Katy. That’s because she has a slate of treatments to combat unruly skin. Her balancing facials include a custom treatment mask, and her peels resurface faces. She also uses a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand to clear out dead skin cells or to ward off evil spirits from the island Porecloggia.
The seasoned waxing techs at Chez Nazee deftly evict unwelcome body hair. A 20- to 30-minute Brazilian wax fully eradicates strands that sprout or migrate to the nether region. An eyebrow wax tidies asymmetrical brow lines, and a lip wax removes undesired fuzz and computer-pie crumbs from the lip area. With waxing, you avoid razor burn and painful cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.

For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
