With a serene atmosphere and service as smooth and sweet as its namesake, Honeydoo Salon & Spa pampers stressed skin into epidermal ambrosia with powerful elixirs culled from the fruits of the earth. The Sobe Glow facial lets sourpusses internalize their grumbles by engulfing their faces in a sun-kissed mist. A Sobe Glow facial comes in two toucan-tempting phases. First, the enzymatic power phase extracts the catalysts of juicy papayas and pineapples, combining them in a sultry cornstarch base that gleefully bastes the face in exfoliating goodness. In act two, papaya-packed activator gels boost the exfoliation process. Dead skin cells are exhumed and dermis graveyards demolished as the Sobe Glow renovates the face. Pores become tighter and more refined as the papaya paves the potholes, resulting in smooth, radiant skin that may provoke attempts at forehead auto-licking.

At their private practice, Albert Canas MD & Associates PA, they apply their medical backgrounds not only to medical procedures but also to cosmetic and weight-loss treatments, such as SilkPeel microdermabrasion treatments, Botox and Sculptra Aesthetic injections, and Palomar intense pulsed-light facials.
