Clear skin is an important component when it comes to looking and feeling your best, but busy schedules often get in the way of dedicated skincare regimens. Into this whirl of calendar pages step the technicians at Wendy's Beauty, carving out a serene oasis in the middle of hectic lives. When clients first arrive at their spa, tech quiz them on their skin's needs and wants. This initial consultation helps them concoct custom treatment plans that might include everything from a pore-cleansing facial to a buffing microdermabrasion session. Techs don't limit their expertise to facial treatments, though; their body scrubs, waxing treatments, and aromatherapy massages restore lost vim and flagging vigor in other parts of the body. No matter the treatments they choose, clients rest easy when it comes to products: professional-grade skincare serums from companies including Mary Galland and Swiss Helenere power all of the spa's treatments.

The same products fuel massages that mix multiple modalities to scatter stress to the four winds, and therapists double down on the healing for calming couples sessions. Foot massages, meanwhile, stimulate reflexology-style pressure points to facilitate full-body wellness after a soothing herbal footbath.
