Waxing seems like a simple beauty treatment—but at Wax Spa, there's more to it than meets the eye. First off, aestheticians must be licensed to ensure safe, effective treatments, and the wax is imported from Europe. Then, there's the strict policy against recycling wax and spatulas, which ensures a germ-free salon.
The team complements their waxes with an array of body contouring treatments, which rely on technology ranging from ultrasound waves to radio frequencies, which is a cosmetic treatment designed to tighten skin without the need for an incision or recovery time. The treatment uses radio frequencies to uniformly heat the dermis, or inner layer of skin, to tighten and help initiate the production of new collagen. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure may take anywhere from 15 minutes for a facial to upwards of an hour for a full body treatment. The salon also brightens complexions with diamond microdermabrasion, which sloughs away dead surface skin to reveal the bright, youthful-looking skin beneath it. And no matter the treatment, each team member takes a customer-centered approach to their services, and helps to cultivate a warm atmosphere that puts clients at ease.
Even as a child, Gustavo Briand's fascination with hairstyling was so strong, he was willing to get into trouble for it. In the years since he lopped off the locks of his sister and all of her dolls, he's gained enough fans to outweigh any early disapproval his passion encountered. Those fans tend to be highly visible: a lifelong lover of the arts, he's styled a long list of opera stars, prepped heads for the red carpet at London Fashion Week, and performed pro-bono work for the Florida Grand Opera, the Miami City Ballet, and the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
In his home studio, Briand and his team draw from a service menu spiked with innovative techniques. Ionic infrared technology leaves blowouts smooth but not overly dry, Davines and Sojourn shampoos and conditioners are specially formulated to restore dehydrated hair, and hair extensions are applied with a minute "lock-and-key" system that requires no adhesives, duct tape, or other potentially damaging techniques.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Spa 101 says it starts with "the fundamentals in massage and facial therapy," but from there it goes on to present a fairly advanced course in relaxation. Sitting beside the sunny terrace of the Hilton Bentley at 101 Ocean Drive, the spa has developed a menu of quite innovative treatments in addition to traditional Swedish massage and deep-cleansing facials. Organic Caudalie products use grape and citrus enzymes to brighten and exfoliate skin naturally, and electro-stimulation encourages facial muscles to contract and become more toned.
Even if you're only stopping in for one treatment, it's easy to spend an entire day at Spa 101. Beneath the palms sits a luxurious beach club with plenty of space for both swimming and lounging, adjacent to a plunge pool and fitness studio to break things up. And if you get a little overheated, you can always can pop back into the spa for a Sunbaked cooling body mask or ask to stand in front of an open freezer at the Hilton's restaurant.
