Aesthetician Xac Williams has been an aesthetician for just over five years, but her resum? might rival those with more than twice her experience. Besides honing her skills in various resorts, Xac worked at the world-famous Bliss Spa in New Jersey before deciding to open her own skincare studio inside Expose Hair Design. There, inside an elegant, private treatment room draped in black-and-teal damask fabric, Xac shows off her expertise as she examines every nook and cranky on her client's faces in order to determine which products from the organic Skin Script line to use. To treat wrinkles, the skilled specialist plumps skin with a hydrating collagen mask, while for faces with poor tone or blemishes, she might recommend microdermbrasion or a chemical peel that utilized glycolic or salicylic acid. In addition to refining skin, Xac also offers waxing services for more than 15 body areas including the brow, back, legs, and the French bikini line, which requires a valid passport upon booking.

The Wax Spot's hair-exorcizing specialists also beautify the male form by clearing follicle debris from the entire back, top of shoulders, and neck ($50+). Though the length of fringe furlough varies, clients can part with their pesky patches for an average of four weeks, leaving them confident and sleek enough to attend dolphin cocktail parties.
