With acute awareness of the physical, aesthetic, and energetic changes that accompany aging, the staff of EC Medical Group aims to reunite clients with their younger selves. HCG injections work in tandem with low-calorie diets custom-built for each client, helping to dissolve weight gained from slowed metabolism. Medical aesthetic treatments employ modern technologies that range from microdermabrasion and dermal fillers to lasers that diminish age spots and glide over hickeys without judgment. EC's trained technicians address internal fluctuations as well, performing extensive medical consultations in order to design regimens of natural hormone-replacement therapy.
Aesthetician and Skin Boutique founder Danielle Sladek wants to follow her clients home. She won’t try to climb into their cars, but she and her team of continually educated skin therapists make sure that every customer leaves understanding how best to treat their skin type between spa visits. During face-centric treatments, the spa's weapons of choice are Dermalogica products, which are made in the United States, never tested on animals, and won't attract bears with their scent. Past the spa’s glitzy chandeliers, plum-colored accents, and ornate wallpaper, guests relax in private treatment rooms as staff pamper their skin with both classic and high-tech procedures.
At Love Your Skin By Hope, aesthetician Hope Acuna personalizes each skincare service with carefully selected products. Pretreatment consultations help Hope to tailor cleansing facials to each individual's skin type, and a complimentary patch test checks for allergies to looking pretty before every chemical peel.
Visible Difference Skin Care & Day Spa's experienced technicians pamper figures with an array of customizable spa treatments. Make over your mood billboard with the 60-minute European facial, a hydrating treatment designed to de-gunk and purify epidermises. During the pumpkin peel, a technician lacquers on a layer of gentle enzymes and phyto-nutrients that further nourish complexions and remove the loitering skin cells. The paraffin hand treatment begins with a hydrating enzyme scrub that is massaged into the arms and hands. Rough mitts then take a synchronized dive into a vat of molten wax, emerging from their soak as soft and rejuvenated as they would be after plucking pennies out of the fountain of youth. For hand models or hands made out of silk, the paraffin treatment can instead be redeemed for a waxing of any two of the following areas: brow, lip, chin, or jaw line.
In their six private design and pampering rooms, the hair benders of La'shus Hair Designs & Day Spas perform luxury salon treatments and skin-smoothing spa services, and present a toothsome menu of juice, café fare, and coffee drinks. Put upstart strands in place with a designer cut ($69+) and nibble a cookie ($4) into the profile of a favorite Cheers cast member. Transform tresses with an all-over permanent color ($89+), and put the remainder toward a facial ($85+) that seals its skin-revitalizing treatment with a personalized mask and moisturizer. A multivitamin body treatment ($125) helps to dissipate dark spots and reduce wrinkles, and renders the epidermis as smooth as the surface of a freshly poured fruit slush ($8–$10). Though this Groupon is only redeemable from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., La'shus Hair Design is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the convenience of sleep-walking salonistas.
The decor at W Salon and Spa—curled chandeliers, furniture upholstered with monochrome prints, and antique-looking wooden bureaus at each styling station—evokes an Enlightenment-era salon steeped in serenity. The literary setting is appropriate since the staff views the venue as a sanctum for the self, where guests can sink into relaxed introspection. With a team that specializes in a number of fields, the spa addresses a sweeping spectrum of services to facilitate such pampered meditation.
A licensed cosmetologist primps complexions with makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and a certified massage therapist calls upon five modalities to put physiques at ease more effectively than a soothing impression of Morgan Freeman narrating a documentary about sloths. Hair- and skincare treatments benefit from Unite and Sonya Dakar products, respectively.
On the spa's medical side, technicians combat wrinkles with Botox injections and curtail unwanted hair growth with carefully aimed laser treatments. The beauticians also host spa parties, accommodating wedding groups and celebrations for expectant mothers as well as birthdays.
