At United Hairlines and Tan Lines, licensed stylists beautify patrons with a host of hair-coddling services amid earthy decor. Change up a look for a date, interview, or secret agent convention with a full-color treatment and style, which can be administered on tresses of any texture. Clients select the hue of their cranial makeover before the seasoned hands of a hair specialist transforms manes into desirable coiffures. Or opt for a Brazilian blowout, which unfrizzles hair by swaddling skull strands in a cocoon of salubrious protein, conditioning hair more effectively than using a flatiron or sticking one's head into a steam press.
Upon arrival at Facial Spa and Body, stress immediately begins to melt away when a cup of tea or coffee is placed in your hands and you gaze at the robin's-egg-blue walls while waiting for facials, body wraps, and cellulite treatments. The aesthetician then leads you into a private room stocked with products from top skincare brands such as SkinCeuticals, Obagi, and La Roche-Posay. In addition to these brands, Facial Spa and Body also sells Colombian Fajas Salome shaping girdles, which contour waistlines, improve posture, and protect midsections from sucker punches.
Surrounded by creamy, golden walls, aestheticians at Epidermis lavish visitors with glow-inducing microdermabrasion treatments and deep-cleaning facials. Crystals spangle a handheld microdermabrasion wand, deploying a tasteful amount of party glitter to gently remove dead skin and help increase the rate of cellular turnover. Fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars diminish under the instrument's bristling rotation, which also aims to promote circulation. Once skin is liberated from superfluous layers of dead cells, a deep-clean facial preps pores to shed debris that can lead to blemishes and foster unwanted dandelion growth.
Skin Institute's AHA/Kojic peel utilizes alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, and kojic acid to piece together a peel with properties to pulverize blemishes, blotches, and bad skin. The AHA, common in many skincare products, exfoliates the epidermis, casting out dead skin cells like autumn leaves from the closet. AHA is also reported to iron out wrinkles and ax acne. Kojic acid, a natural by-product of a Japanese mushroom, helps to lighten spots of skin darkened by increased melanin deposits. Put in peel form, this clinical concoction cocoons facial skin, allowing a beautiful hummingbird of smooth skeletal sheathing to emerge after 45 minutes.
