A Touch of Heaven came to fruition under the direction of Andrea Sylvia, an aesthetician and former surgical nurse who dreamed of blending the pampering atmosphere of a day spa with the compassionate care of a doctor's office. Medical therapies appear throughout the extensive service menu, brightening complexions with pharmaceutical-grade skincare products from SkinCeuticals and trimming silhouettes with weight-loss programs. Nonsurgical face-lifts rely on microcurrent technology to diminish fine lines and visibly firm the skin, while the futuristic-looking alpha spa capsule combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna with the rejuvenating effects of aromatherapy and vibratory massage.
In addition to these advanced treatments, traditional spa remedies such as manicures, hot-stone massage, and hugs from terry-cloth robes aim to quiet stressed minds and muscles. The spa also accents glowing complexions with glittering face and body art and donates all proceeds from the five-dollar service to Women at Risk, an organization devoted to combating human trafficking.
Attraction Salon's experienced stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians make a point of welcoming their visitors with open arms and plush salon chairs. Perhaps due to this uncommon hospitality, the salon has developed a reputation for serving a multicultural base of clientele that includes women and men alike. Stylists invoke a chorus of clips and snips with their shears, forming flattering shapes or enhancing the look and health of hair with highlights, deep conditioning, and texturizing treatments. Nail technicians busy themselves with the other kind of keratin, whittling nails into elegant shapes during manicures and pedicures or applying full sets of glittery acrylics. Faces likewise sparkle after one of five facials that cater to dry and acne-prone skin, rejuvenating complexions with cleansing and exfoliating techniques. On the other side of the salon, spray-tanning and waxing treatments prepare bodies for lounging on beaches or napping inconspicuously in bronze-sculpture gardens.

Boasting an emphasis on expediency, Glamour on the Go executes its spray tans in half an hour, granting tan-takers the rest of the day to flaunt their tawny glow at pouty marshmallow men.
