As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health-and-wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Licensed aestheticians at Lana Gray International command advanced technology in their successful campaign to rejuvenate skin. Aestheticians get to know faces and backs with an introductory cleanse, allowing them to customize a treatment using Image skincare products and send them spot-on birthday presents. Faces and backs revel in gentle steam before aestheticians perform an extraction to free up pores and tone skin. Next, customers receive a facial that gently detaches dead skin cells from their living counterparts with a thorough exfoliation before a mask seals in nutrients and creates wrestling personas for both the face and back. Alternately, clients can select the microdermabrasion and mini facial, where technicians guide a small device over the face and exfoliate away dead skin cells with a stream of crystal dust. Newly sculpted visages receive a 30-minute facial that cycles through a cleanse, final exfoliation, and moisturizing treatment, like the three acts of a Shakespearean play.
The waxing masters at Skin Deep Aesthetics By JB use a quick, precise technique to rid unwanted hair with minimal discomfort. Aestheticians offer advice for aftercare and upkeep, and give discounted rates for clients who purchase monthly maintenance packages and promise to give up duct tape. Aside from waxing, the aestheticians administer facials and Norvell airbrush tans, each of which hydrate the skin to keep it balanced and supple. The spa also offers the innovative Formostar Infrared body wrap, which boosts circulation and detoxification by heating up the body and inducing sweating.
As a medical aesthetician and owner of Studio Skin Deep, Yasmin Beeck understands the role one's skin condition plays in the grand scheme of their overall health. She takes skincare seriously, as she believes that a troubled complexion can signal underlying internal imbalances in need of professional treatment. To combat these effects, Yasmin rejuvenates skin with customized facials, peels, and microdermabrasion sessions. She also strips away unwanted hair with waxing, and pumps up lashes with eyelash extensions, which make twinkling noises any time you flutter them at a prospective beau. Throughout all her treatments, she emphasizes educating her clients, keeping them informed on the best way to maintain their beauty inside and out.
