In the eyes of Trieva’s beauticians, spa treatments should not only address cosmetic concerns but also inspire confidence and bolster the spirits of their recipients. The 12-member staff, which includes a full complement of aestheticians and massage therapists, undertakes projects that help rejuvenate clients both physically and mentally. The team’s facials rely on a number of techniques and products to spruce up countenances, such as Clarisonic oscillating brushes, aloe vera moisturizers, and medical-grade chemical peels. Known to whisk clients away on clouds of relaxation, Trieva’s massage therapists can combine flowing Hawaiian lomilomi techniques and French aromatherapy to de-stress frazzled minds and achy musculature. Rounding out the menu of services, GiGi wax gently evicts hairs no matter how long their leases run, leaving faces and bodies stubble-free for as long as eight weeks.
Amai Day Spa’s staff specializes in a dizzying variety of aesthetic services, allowing clients to slip into a fuzzy robe and pad from technologically enhanced facial treatments to ancient reflexology sessions to precise henna-tattoo applications in a matter of minutes. A stable of licensed massage therapists stand by to deliver aromatherapy, hot-stone, and four-handed massages, and aestheticians provide traditional and luxury facials that enhance complexions with caviar, LED light, or bedtime stories about lotion-breathing dragons. Once they leave their private treatment rooms, clients can head to the lobby to discover a wealth of tools to maintain healthy skin at home, including designer products such as Skin Ceuticals and Pevonia Botanica.
The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.
Aesthetician Suzan Tajer started Ancient Secrets of Beauty in 1991, and over the years, she's specialized in two types of treatments: waxing and Lipomassage. The latter treatment attempts to fight cellulite with vacuum suction and two rollers that fold and unfold the skin. When it comes to waxing, Suzan can shape brows, erase unwanted mustaches, and make arms and legs so smooth and aerodynamic that clients accidentally take flight.
Her true specialty, however, is Brazilian waxing. Suzan saw the trend approaching way back when she opened her salon, and immediately she started developing her own techniques. Today, Suzan's quick Brazilian treatments shun strip waxing techniques in favor of wax that shrink-wraps around the hair as it dries. Her Brazilian waxing techniques have earned her a number of mentions in both local and national magazines, such as Allure and The Premier Seattle Monthly.
