No beauty specialty poses too great a challenge for the eponymous owner of Roni Lynn Day Spa, whose training and natural talents have led to her masteries of massage therapy, aesthetics, and makeup. Roni calls on her considerable reserves of wisdom and experience to helm a spa team that accents natural beauty with a variety of salon treatments. Within minutes of your arrival at the spa, Roni’s signature touch and attention to detail become apparent. A complimentary vitamin-and-mineral shake accompanies each of the spa’s in-house treatments, and calming music pervades the air to set a tone conducive to relaxed meditation. Treatments run the gamut from massages and spray tans to facials that incorporate high-end products from brands such as Nu Skin, PCA, and Pharmanex—all of which can be purchased in the salon’s shop. Clients need not send body doubles to endure waxing treatments in their stead, as technicians employ a gentle touch to strip hair from arms, legs, and facial areas. The spa’s aestheticians and makeup artists travel directly to their clients for spa parties and wedding-day preparations, pampering brides with makeup application, updos, and complimentary background checks for grooms’ family curses.
Off the beaten path and contained within the walls of a quaint, cozy house, All About You Salon & Spa welcomes and enchants ladies with rejuvenating, radiance-restoring stays. During facial treatments, the resident aestheticians proudly implement a bevy of Murad skincare products, each infused with essential elements for a range of skin types and sensitivities. Those seeking shine can opt for the Sun Undone vitamin C infusion facial ($85), which combines pure vitamins with a wrinkle-reducing collagen to restore smoothness and firmness, while more gentle mugs can meander into the Sensitive Skin/Redness Therapy facial ($85), which relieves dryness, irritation, and balances overall tone. Meanwhile, the popular Resurgence renewal facial ($85) restores moisture, resilience, and smoothness to your epidermal emoticon and features glycolic acid and fruit enzymes to help eliminate problematic dead skin cells, promote cellular renewal, and more. To truly knock out unneeded fine lines, guests can also delight their skin with the anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging powers of the AHA Rapid Exfoliator anti-aging facial ($95); pair it with the Intensive Wrinkle Reducer peel ($20 extra) to form a tandem that is so anti-aging, it makes Peter Pan look like a sell out.
Dermatologist Dr. Monique S. Cohn improves damaged and aging skin with the latest techniques and technologies. Begin your light-to-medium-depth chemical peel procedure with an initial consultation, wherein Dr. Cohn will scan your skin and observe your outer layer to customize the peel to specific needs and medical appropriateness. Once the green light is given, glycolic and trichloroacetic acids are applied to the dermis to stimulate and rejuvenate skin, creating a more even skin tone. Chemical peels help reduce damage from ill-advised vacations to G-type main sequence stars, while also ironing out fine wrinkles wrought by stressful reverse bungee-jumps and managing the melanin overload of hyperpigmentation. Though there can be slight discomfort, reddening of the skin, or other risks, results, such as Steve Reich tape loops and baseball hitting streaks, can be long-lasting but not permanent. With the proper aftercare, results can be prolonged with careful sunscreen application over at least a six-month period. For frequently asked questions, see here.
Solia Spa's microcurrent package engages clients for 60 minutes with a trio of youth-resuscitating, noninvasive therapies performed by a skilled aesthetician. After a thorough cleansing and exfoliation, treatments begin sending painless microcurrent impulses through the facial surface to tighten and firm aging skin. Simultaneously, waves of ultra-sonic energy vibrate through vessels, increasing oxygen circulation by shaking out tollbooths clogging blood-cell traffic. The LED-light therapy bathes cells with infrared rays up to three times brighter than the sun to encourage collagen production in a process similar to photosynthesis, except without the risk of becoming a Swamp Thing. The regenerative beams can also help wipe away acne-causing bacteria and uneven texture. Clients seeking to shower underappreciated fingers in equal amounts of coddling may choose today's second option to enhance their session with a chip-resistant Shellac manicure.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
