The specialists at RaVi SkinCare customize their treatments for each individual’s skin type. Facials work to sop up excess oil, blast away dry patches with a dose of hydration, or send acne into a deep slumber. The pros also paint unwanted tuffs of hair with warm wax that leaves nothing but smooth skin in its wake. Permanent-makeup services include eyeliner, lip color, and brows that would make Grouch Marx proud.
New Look Skin Center's cast of registered nurses and aestheticians fine-tunes epidermal appearances with an arsenal of cosmetic services. Their GentleMax PRO equipment employs beams of light to remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and skin imperfections, such as wrinkles and sunspots. Staff members can also oust unwanted spider veins before they converge and form the client's social security number. VelaShape II treatments eliminate unwanted cellulite. New Look’s range of offerings also extends to more traditional spa services, including wraps, salt-glow exfoliation, teeth whitening, and injectables.
When it comes to beauty maintenance, Nunei Harrington asserts, “If you cannot eat it, do not put it on your skin.” The licensed aesthetician puts her words into practice at Sola Salon by using only natural products, including real fruits and vegetables, which she hand-blends to create custom facials, Nufree vegan hair-removal wax, and organic makeup.
During customized facials, Harrington can target environmental damage with organic pumpkin; fight acne with volcanic ash; and calm rosacea with rosewater, chamomile, and bedtime stories—all tailored to skin type. Facials include deep-tissue massage of the face, neck, and shoulders. Hair-removal sessions utilize either botanical Nufree vegan products or homemade beeswax and leave skin soft, smooth, and moisturized. Other spa treatments include the raindrop technique, which combines aromatherapy and essential oils from Young Living to relax the body and mysteriously balance the client's checkbook.
As Shoshana Shiri notes on her website, "cosmetology" come from the Greek term for "the art of creating beauty." At her studio, she takes this art seriously, bringing years of experience to treatments that refresh, rejuvenate, and beautify her clients' faces. Chemical peels stimulate skin growth while stripping away dead skin, and acne treatments clear out pores without resorting to medication. Her permanent makeup applications provide guests with long-term beauty solutions, helping hide scars from face lifts, fill in sparse brow lines, or equipping lips with always-vibrant color.
The professionals at Moonlight Skin Cares kick the natural skin-cell process into high gear with their microdermabrasion treatments and facials. Instead of waiting for dead skin cells to slough off by themselves, microdermabrasion gently abrades the topmost layer of skin and uses vacuum suction or tiny black holes to get rid of the dead cells. The body then quickly replaces those cells with fresh healthy ones. Custom enzyme peels also achieve the same exfoliating effect, and both treatments make the studio's cleansers and moisturizers more effective.
A long row of cushioned, black leather pedicure chairs outfitted with wood armrests and clear, punchbowl-like basins line the wall of Boudoir Nail & Spa. Lightly stained wood floors and multi-hued neon lighting accents give the salon a modern, perhaps even hip atmosphere in which to unwind with a beauty treatment. The salon also showcases a hint of the natural world with green plants that stretch to the ceiling, like a basketball player showing where he hides his tall pills. Boudoir's team performs services worthy of the elegant décor: massages, waxing, and facials take place in private rooms, as do permanent makeup applications.
