At Joy Nail & Spa, the road to beauty is paved with many all-natural ingredients, including herbal scrubs, essential oils, and botanical extras such as cucumber and lemongrass. There's the botanical herbal mani-pedis, with soothing spearmint, lavender, and chamomile just part of a large relaxation regimen that also includes hot-stone massages and nail grooming. And there's the green-tea body wrap, which softens skin, and the multivitamin anti-aging facial, which softens fine lines.
Joy Nail & Spa also offers hair removal using a housemade sugar-based concoction. Unlike getting a traditional wax or licking a lollipop and sticking it to your body, the all-natural sugaring method removes hair with minimal irritation to the skin.
Dermabelle Salon & Spa houses a team of experts well-versed in catering to a wide range of hair and skin concerns. In the salon, stylists deliver custom cuts and coloring, and get unruly tresses under control with conditioning treatments, instead of relying solely on duct-tape. Meanwhile, permanent makeup services help streamline morning routines or camouflage scars, while aestheticians moisturize and rejuvenate skin during facials that incorporate exfoliation, masks, and special techniques such as the application of hot and cold stones. To address discomfort deep in the muscle, therapists also perform six styles of massage, including deep-tissue and reflexology.
Beyond Studio’s lead stylists share more than just a combined 17 years of experience. The combination of experience and creative energy allows the team at Beyond Studio to turn the most disheveled hairdos into colorful portraits of elegance and beauty, customizing all services to the lifestyles of their individual clients. Though clients may be drawn to the salon for the stylists’ hair-design prowess, they can also stay and indulge in a french, Shellac, or spa mani-pedi, or visit the studio's color specialist, Samira, who also threads and sculpts eyebrows. The salon, which is located in the heart of Woodbridge, also features mani-pedis exclusively for kids and stuffed tigers, as well as waxing services that yield smooth lip regions and perfectly arched eyebrows, while facades are treated to a mini-facial, galvanic spa treatment, pumpkin facial, anti-aging facial, or clarifying acne facial. Special occasion packages and seasonal promotions are also available.
Softouch Permanent Makeup's steady-handed professionals subtly and safely enhance clients' natural features using the SofTap Hand Method. Unlike permanent makeup applied with a tattoo gun or water pistol loaded with borscht, the SofTap Hand Method applies pigment using small needles to gently tap color under the skin's surface, usually over the course of two visits to reduce healing time. Improve top lash batting averages with a slight dot of color between every lash ($250), or add permanent top or bottom eyeliner ($250). Fully shade a pout ($550) or fill out sparse or bare brows ($400) with natural-looking strokes that mimic the look of brow hair. Though the procedure may cause some pain, prettifying pros apply a numbing agent before application to reduce discomfort. Results can last from five to ten years, and require minimal touchups or makeout sessions with rainbows to maintain.
The staff at Laser Plus Lasertrolysis & Skin Care—two registered nurses, seven electrologists, and a team of licensed aestheticians—stays abreast of industry trends through extensive training and continuing education. As the center’s name implies, many of its treatments involve laser-based removal of unwanted hair, veins, and skin imperfections. In addition to those advanced therapies, reflexology applies healing pressure to specific energy zones and mineral make up applications with Jane Iredale and organic Eminence products free up time for other important morning tasks, such as peeling off the sticky residue of one’s nightly cocoon.
Overseen by Dr. Tania Damavandy, who is board certified in aesthetic medicine, the staff at Impressions MediSpa transform clients' skin and bodies with the latest available technology.
