Revival Skin and Body Care prides itself on being a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. To that end, each facial comes with customized aromatherapy and a neck-and-shoulder massage with hot stones that melt tension on contact. Other studio offerings include spa staples such as waxing, salon services like eyelash extensions, and med-spa treatments including microdermbrasion and lymphatic drainage. To cap things off, each client can have a complimentary cup of tea, which they can drink themselves or donate to a presumably trembling ice-cream-truck driver.
Within the pink walls of The V Spot Salon, pampering pros provide a plethora of services to transform forlorn figures into beaming beauty queens. Indulge in a Shellac manicure, which will leave your nails filed, cleansed, and enameled. After tidying your finger canvases, a face ace expertly dabs on a careful coating of color with a professional airbrush makeup application. Next, a stylish updo renders tresses coiffed and ready for glamorous events from a debutante ball to a black-tie ballgame. Those looking to spicy up their anatomies may opt for a custom vajazzling ($35+), during which a bling master bedazzles birthday suits with an embellishment of Swarovski crystals. Dermal designers may opt for the flirtatious pattern of their choice, such as a butterfly, a heart, or their favorite sonnet. Whether beautifying your body's attic or basement, toast your time at The V Spot Salon with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, or a nonalcoholic sparkling beverage for those under 21.

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.
