Products by brands such as Pharmagel, Aquage, Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, Vavoom, and Essentials jump into clients' hair and hands at Lakeside Hair Boutique and Day Spa. That's because the stylists use them during hair services, but also make them available for sale in the boutique. It's not just high-end products that refresh guests, though. It's also the facials, hair extensions that last up to one year, soothing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. So, in addition to stylists who re-imagine hair-scapes by using Japanese hair-straightening techniques, nail technicians host clients in cozy black leather thrones during mani-pedis. The latter might involve shiny shellac gels that last for up to two weeks without chipping or fading. Elsewhere—in private rooms—massage therapists work away knots and pent-up stress. Their methods include specialized Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy massages, as well as just playing a tambourine on your back.
Alter Image Hair Salon's experienced stylists imbue locks with pulchritude by performing an array of cut, color, and texturizing treatments using Redken products. During a cut and partial foil, a stylist tames unruly manes into fresh new 'dos before painting strands with golden streaks made with authentic sun extract. For a more dramatic mane makeover, clients may opt for an all-over color brightened with a shine-boosting gloss that lasts up to 30 shampoos. A hydrating conditioning treatment helps dry, brittle, or desert-dwelling bristles prepare for careers starring in shampoo commercials.
Dr. Sandra V. Kristiansen heads the capable staff at the AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center, one that specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and houses a physician onsite daily. Avoiding general anesthesia, they use only local anesthesia to help minimize downtime. Doctors can perform several treatments designed to abate unsightly leg veins, such as endovenous laser treatments, which use tiny laser fibers within the vein to close them up. Other treatments include fat transfer, where the client's own fat is removed, purified, and re-injected into a different area of the body to help achieve a more youthful look. There's also IPL hair removal and laser liposuction, the latter of which liquefies and removes fat via a tiny cannula. Established in 1997 and BBB accredited, AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center now operates in a brand-new facility with optimal highway access.
Mila Skin Care Salon's eponymous aesthetician, Mila Kriger, calls upon more than 10 years of skin-care experience—including hands-on training with organic and alternative medicines such as Ayurveda—to clear skin of blemishes and promote a healthy, glowing complexion. Though Mila specializes in restoring the face to its youthful radiance, her holistic approach emphasizes whole-body detoxification and may include energy healing, chakra balancing, or karmic residue cleaning. She combines these nontraditional healing methods with advanced skin-clearing treatments, employing a MegaPeel microdermabrasion machine to peel away dead skin cells and a Galvanic facial massager to clear black eye rims caused by staying up late or wearing freshly painted monocles. Depending on the personalized skin-care regimen she crafts for you, Mila may also call upon organic products from Hylunia or the professional formulations of PCA SKIN.
Don't be fooled by the name—X-Treme Styles is a destination for more than just a good bronzing. At the full-service salon and spa for hair, nails, and even slimming body wraps, the multifaceted staff tends to clients with a variety of services. Of course, there's tanning, too—both UV and UV-free—and visitors may choose from a variety of beds, just like Goldilocks.
Sugar & Spice gilds corporeal forms with a suite of beautifying procedures. Manicures and pedicures call upon skilled nail sculptors to trim cuticles and shape jagged claws into beautifully rounded finger ornaments before coating nails in chromatic armor. Piggies get extra pampering with a soothing footbath, a sugar scrub, massage, and pumice sloughing to remove rough calluses and stubbornly clingy octopuses.
