Mimosa Salon and Spa's name is derived from the mimosa tree, whose lithe branches support lime-green leaves and pompom-esque blooms. But its connection to nature doesn't end there. Stylists employ natural Aveda products, such as texturizing lotions crafted with organic marshmallow root and natural-aroma-infused shampoos, during soothing salon services. Spa treatments also use plant-derived products. Aestheticians customize facials with Aveda's Green Science and Outer Peace lines, and body treatments include exfoliation with Dead Sea salts and hydrating organic coconut wraps.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
My clients. Meeting new people and growing a really in-depth personal relationship with each person. I am extremely personable and very open. I find that clients will confide in me. I am a safe place and person to talk to, and I absolutely love and value that. My clients know that every conversation, treatment, and personal information is confidential. I cherish the fact that my clients know that I always have their best interest at hand; that I will always make time for them. I provide personal information so they always have access to me for their questions and any concerns they may have.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
When you first walk in, you are greeted with a sense of warmth. I offer a very cozy environment with a fireplace, warm colors, and light aromas. You are always greeted with a warm smile and asked if you would like a beverage (water, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or even a glass of wine). The treatment room itself offers a very comfortable bed and has a darling lit chandelier with candles (battery-operated), allowing a nice, soft glow. Clients always have the opportunity to add any waxing or services prior to their facial, or a hot oil treatment to hands and feet followed by aromatherapy footies, hand mittens, and relaxing massage. This treatment leaves the hands and feet feeling like soft butter. The treatment room offers a personal space for clients to hang their personal belongings, but always having everything close by.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Complete astonishment and elated joy when they are handed the mirror after their treatment. It's amazing.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
One of the best compliments I receive from my clients is when they fall asleep during a facial and or back facial. They tell me they are so comfortable and relaxed. I often hear snoring?it's the best.
Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.
Despite its name, NT Nails does more than beautify hands and feet with manicures and pedicures. Amidst its nail services such as shellac manicures, acrylic tips, and paraffin hand treatments, another beautifying service abounds, though it may not be as visible as shiny red fingernails. NT Nails' detox foot spa introduces clients to the ionic foot detox, which soaks feet in an ion foot bath. The bath coaxes out stored-up toxins and helps to restore energy and balance while clearing up skin issues and calming the mind.
