Body Minute's focus on catering to women with busy lifestyles propelled its skin-care methods into more than 350 beauty centers across Europe—and then, across the pond. Whether requesting individual services or a monthly subscription, each of Body Minute's clients receives the convenience of quick treatments without the need for an appointment.
Basic facials with steam and extractions cleanse specific skin types, while facial patches reinvigorate the skin with algae or olive-tree extracts. Alternatively, aestheticians pamper the whole body with services such as a relaxing Japanese massage and a Hormeta scrub exfoliation, which lets clients feel the smoothing effects of volcanic rock without having to roll down the slope of Krakatoa. To help clients achieve the results of their treatments at home, Body Minute carries its own line of paraben-free, Swiss-made beauty products.
Specializing in Brazilian bikini and full-body waxing, Sayos Body Waxing Center provides services for both men and women. The glass-fronted shop uses a European style of waxing that doesn’t rely on the painful old method of applying cloth strips and peeling them away, which often results in skin irritation and inflammation. Here, the wax itself is removed directly, after being allowed to set briefly on the skin, resulting in a cleaner, more comfortable experience. The same could be said of the treatment rooms themselves, which, though sparse, give a nod to the healthy, clean procedure being performed. Sayos relies on honey wax. The shop also provides facials, massages and manicures and pedicures inside their smallish space.
