Whenever possible, Ciana Salon and Day Spa's staff use natural products, from their Aveda hair-color products to body treatments infused with Dead Sea salts and seaweed. In the salon area, stylists consult with clients to determine the best cut and color to suit their predilections. They then coat manes with Aveda color products packed with sunflower, castor, and jojoba plant oils to protect hair while tinting it and making it indistinguishable from many gardens. The stylists also lengthen locks with Great Lengths extensions made from 100% human hair for a natural look. On the spa side of the business, aestheticians keep to the natural theme by enhancing facials with marine and plant extracts and energizing tourmaline minerals. They also offer treatments that fight the visibility of aging, such as custom-blended TCA skin peels and microdermabrasion with exfoliating microcrystals. The aestheticians further pamper clients by rendering body wraps packed with rosemary and peppermint, as well as hot- and cool-stone massages, which, hypothetically, would lose to paper massages.
Nails by Joanne draws from nearly two decades of expertise as she pampers appendages with luxurious manicures and pedicures. Jagged talons transmogrify into smooth squares or delicate ovals beneath textured files, and overgrown cuticles beat a hasty retreat before daubs of vivid polish coordinate nails with clients' outfits, moods, or fire-engine-red irises. Hot towels and stones melt away built-up stress, and rejuvenating dips in paraffin wax smooth chapped skin and hydrate thirsty pores. A 15-minute hand-and-foot massage hones in on lingering digital tension with gentle pressure and therapeutic oils that sing soothing lullabies.
While the scientific world and natural world are often at odds, the staff at Aesthetic Skin Care Center have found a way for them to exist symbiotically by using technologically advanced treatments and scientifically formulated products to restore the skin's natural beauty. The European-trained, licensed aestheticians address blemishes and signs of aging with services such as IPL sessions or LED-light therapy, and employ the latest permanent-makeup techniques to enhance facial features. With more than 20 years of experience in the skincare industry, the team can also recommend an appropriate, product-based treatment, including a plant-derived Green Peel designed by Dr. Med. Christine Schrammek, to diminish sun damage, scars, and tired-looking skin caused by over-basting the face with turkey jus.
The inviting spa boasts a clean, modern ambience, thanks to white-on-white walls and cabinets, and glass shelves neatly lined with jars and bottles of Vie Collection, Jean D'Arcel, and Phytomer products.
