At SpaTaneity, relaxation begins as soon as guests step over the threshold. The de-stressing smells of aromatherapy greet each guest, and the sounds of trickling water and calming music add depth to the refreshing beverages clients sip as they begin to leave the bustling world behind. The spa’s owner, Trish Diaz, honed her relaxation-inducing skills during 10 years spent as a master aesthetician. In designing her spa, Trish made sure that her qualified staff members possessed the same unparalleled attention to detail that Trish lavished on her tranquil spa space.
Amid earth-toned rooms filled with plants and plush pillows, licensed and master aestheticians use custom facials and microdermabrasion to rid skin of imperfections and signs of aging such as sun spots, fine lines, and the finger scratches that result from babysitting an ill-behaved grandfather clock. Massage therapists deflate stress and tension with Swedish, hawaiian, and hot-stone massages, and mud body wraps feature cameos from honey butters and sea mud to detox the skin and give it a healthy, polished glow.
In 2009, Redken Master Stylist and Certified Pureologist technician Elena teamed up with her sister, Rosalia, to open Invidia Hair Design. Since then, their team has grown to include eight total stylists. Among those eight, there are several other Master Stylists, each of whom maintains her skills with continuing education classes. Inside their upscale and modern space, the team cuts hair, adds flair with feather extensions, and drenches locks in new hues with such eye-popping color the salon has an optometrist on call. The team performs all of these services with the aid of products by brands such as Redken, Chi, and Pureology. Many of these styling aides are available for purchase on Invidia's retail shelves and can be taken home after visits.
When Dr. Louise Ferland says, “if it is not good enough for myself or my family, it is not good enough for my patients,” she means it. Take, for example, the new Cool Sculpting procedure, a treatment that freezes stubborn fat to reduce the appearance of bulges and one that Ferland, her staff, and her family have had done with successful results. With more than 20 years of experience in nonsurgical and surgical cosmetic procedures, she specializes in plastic surgery for the face and body. She also helps clients fight aging by performing skin peels, injecting muscles with Botox, and stopping them when they start stories with “back in the day.”
