The team at European Spa Boutique administers a thoughtful blend of naturally derived and technologically advanced treatments. A less-irritating, antiseptic wax made from soybeans is used for hair removal, and heated lava stones warm achy muscles during body treatments. For the extensive selection of facials, aestheticians call upon both methods of treatment: botanical extracts calm acned skin, chemical peels are harvested from chocolate and berries, and microcurrent and LED-light therapies are designed to increase collagen production and dissipate fine lines.
Elements Day Spa pampers over-stressed guests and effortlessly brings beauty within reach with a plethora of energizing options. During the 60-minute signature facial treatment, a skilled spa technician applies one of 298 customized concoctions, designed to rehydrate parched skin cells and smooth coarsened complexions. Included with the facial is a soothing massage that will loosen lymph nodes and knead tension from hands and feet. Reclined relaxers can treat their people-paws to a spa pedicure and sport digits that dazzle onlookers like an elephant balancing on a giant disco ball. Exfoliation and paraffin treatments reinvigorate fatigued feet, and the nail shaping and polish application transform under-dressed appendages into striking flip-flop fillers. The finger-focused can make over dowdy digits with a shellac manicure that replaces harsh chemicals with hypoallergenic products. A UV lamp is used to set the shellac and eliminate drying time, creating a flawless gloss that can last for up to two weeks.
The licensed technicians at Grande Med Spa clear hair from bodies with lasers, contour bodies with state-of-the-art treatments, and perform Botox injections and microdermabrasions. A full line of skincare products populates the shop's shelves, and jewelry waits to adorn wrists that are tired of sporting four plastic novelty watches. Private treatment rooms comfort patients with soft linens and artwork, and plush furniture and a flat-screen TV keep clients occupied in the waiting room.
Long-time Suddenly Slender clients and product proponents, Nurturing U Spa owners Carol and Marla now share these torso-tautening mineral-body-wrap methods with the Flint area. The SlenderTone wrap claims to harness the electrical fields of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and enzymes to tighten, tone, and reshape the body into a visibly slimmer figure without dieting or laborious exercise (a $90 value). A Nurturing U Spa aesthetician envelops the body in a non-dehydrating cocoon, then encourages patients to engage in mild physical activity or strenuous word-search puzzle to promote circulation while the treatment takes effect. After about an hour, once-curvy caterpillars emerge as smoother, more slender butterflies.
For over nine years, Natural Body Health & Wellness's team of health gurus has shepherded passersby onto the path to physical harmony with its healing therapies, collection of advanced workout equipment, and all-natural products. The team is further guided by the experience that comes with seeing 50 to 70 customers a day and seven years in business. Troublesome aches recede into the distance as the center's aqua-massage beds knead away pains with a dry-water system, while Sunlighten full-spectrum infrared saunas purge bodies of toxins acquired from misguided diets and watching too much reality television. The TurboSonic whole-body vibration machine tends to a range of wellness factors, helping clients increase circulation, stimulate cellular fluids, and accelerate the body's overall healing response. Refreshing sips of Tyent alkaline?ionized water from the center's shop help visitors cool down after vigorous workouts, and it thoroughly rehydrates bodies.
Under the expertise of owner and board-certified aesthetician Nancy Young, skincare professionals at dbts Skin Bar-Corporate use zone-by-zone facial mapping to create custom skin therapy. With high-end Dermalogica products in tow, staffers fight a variety of dermal foes, including acne blemishes, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scars in the shape of ATM PINs. Using a blend of antioxidants, glycolic acids, and fruit acids, treatments such as advanced rejuvenating chemical peels strip away the exterior layer of skin to promote collagen production and unearth healthier new skin. Other skin-therapy treatments diminish hyperpigmentation or slow the process of aging. Not only do the specialty treatments leave skin smoother, but the light-based hair-removal services contribute to a sleeker façade.
