As a certified permanent makeup artist, Larissa Percy uses feathering, shading, and simulated hair strokes to seamlessly incorporate the permanent makeup, eliminating the need for daily applications of lipstick, eyeliner, or well-placed mustard stains.?Whether adding a beauty mark or defining lip lines, Larissa always takes her time and ensures clients are as comfortable as possible during the procedure, following up with helpful after-care instructions and free touchup sessions if necessary.

Permanent Secrets also indulges clients with an assortment of traditional spa services, including hydrating facials and specialized waxing services that effortlessly strip away unwanted hairs from sensitive skin. The staff even offers synthetic silk eyelash extensions, which they glue to existing lashes for a more lush and dramatic look.

For Ziba, the lead aesthetician at Ziba Skin Care, the best skincare treatments blend science and art. She combines these disciplines by analyzing each client's skin type, discerning its unique chemical balance. From there, she performs treatments such as microdermabrasion, lymphatic-drainage massage, and ultrasonic facials and often complements new technologies with age-old therapies. For instance, during the collagen hydrating treatment, she infuses skin with vitamins A, C, and E by applying nutrient-rich moisturizers and banana-cream pies. She can also finish any service with the addition of semiflare eyelash extensions.
A massive poster of Marilyn Monroe adorns the wall at Beba Beauty, hanging above the spare but intimate lobby like an homage to aesthetics. While the day spa can’t guarantee that its clients will look like Marilyn – even after a slew of the rejuvenating services held inside –the customer may certainly feel that radiant, thanks to a wide-ranging menu that includes facials, waxing and body treatments. For those looking for the ultimate in revitalization, though, consider the Day of Beauty: a package of treatments that includes a hydrating facial, hand and foot treatment, lash extensions, an eyebrow makeover and even a champagne lunch, all for a discount.
