At Empress Nails II, vitality and variety go hand in hand. All told, the salon's technicians specialize in no less than nine forms of pedicures, which incorporate everything from hot stone therapy to sugar and honey scrubs or glycolic acid. Manicures, too, offer plenty of options, such as acrylic nail applications or coats of no-chip polish to keep nails from being eroded by running faucets. Empress Nails also provides full-body and foot massages and facials that can soften blemishes and bring out youthful hues.
At Eden Salon & Spa, guests sip on drafts of water, coffee, or tea as they wait to meet with stylists to shape their hair, skin, or nails into a new, revitalizing look. Along with hairstyling and color treatments such as highlights or eyebrow tints, the staff specializes in a full suite of mani-pedi services, from applying acrylics to coating fingernails or toe hubcaps with chip-resistant Shellac polish.
Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from ?minence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
Salon Sophia's hair and skin artists tease out natural beauty with an array of services bolstered by natural Aveda products that lend manes a healthy foundation. Stylists prune strands and style head gardens to suit occasions from nights on the town to weddings and apocalypses. Locks shift along the prismatic spectrum under the care of colorists, and change texture with keratin and Aveda straightening services. The salon's staff makes sure to lend its clients the technical knowledge they need to maintain the health and style of coifs between visits. A roster of facials incorporates Aveda products and the sound of spears beating on shields to frighten off epidermal impurities.
Many med-spa technicians use one or two lasers to treat a variety of beauty woes. Center for Dermatology & Skin Cancer's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robert Kolbusz and his staff use no less than 20 medical lasers. They wield both Fraxel and Erbium skin-resurfacing lasers to help spur collagen production, they use a CO2 laser to destroy warts, they operate a Palomar Lux 1064 designed to fade unwanted veins, and they train their KTP laser's beams on faces to combat rosacea. They also use other advanced technologies to fine tune bodies, including everything from skin-tightening radio-frequency devices to acne-bacteria-killing blue lights.
At Sweet & Sassy, a candy-colored salon and spa that frequently hosts beauty parties, experienced pulchritude practitioners pamper toddlers to tweens with myriad services.

An ear-piercing throne, an accessories boutique, and a celebration area complete with globe lights, a reflective disco ball, and a fashion runway make up Sweet & Sassy’s diva-friendly atmosphere.
