When Alexandria "Lexy" Hernandez isn?t healing minds and bodies with massage and meditation techniques, she's working on human canvases?dusting on eye art, etching out defining features with makeup, and summoning radiance from skin with scrubs and body wraps. Her range of services is wide: she and her staff can twist hair into elegant updos or prepare brides and attendants for memorable wedding days with formal hair and makeup packages. In addition to traditional and airbrush-makeup applications, she offers paramedical cosmetic sessions, which aim to conceal skin imperfections, the aftereffects of plastic surgery, or tattoos proclaiming the love of your ex-favorite mom. She also specializes in deep-tissue massage, which she calibrates to not only relax clients but also to encourage healing.
Although well-versed in skincare treatments herself, Happy Beauty Center?s head specialist, Kathy, still supplements her knowledge with the expertise contained within the 80-year-old Pola line of Japanese products, which are backed by the work of more than 500 scientists and fewer than one bumbling detective. These formulas and others bolster moisturizing hand and foot treatments and facials such as the diamond microdermabrasion, which can shrink oversize pores while smoothing wrinkles and rough skin. Happy Beauty Center?s specialties also include the foot-body-tummy treatment, during which staffers massage acupressure points on the belly to speed up digestion and fizzle stress.
Dr. Sherry Tsai's practiced eye will look beyond your teeth to detect issues in your jaw, gums, and muscles of mastication that might affect overall health.

The certified therapists at A Perfect Day Spa coax burdens of stress and tension out of client bodies with an expansive repertoire of massage techniques. Muscle pamperings are available across an intensity spectrum that ranges from light and relaxing to deep tissue, with something to suit every client. The classic Swedish method uses kneading and sliding to dissolve tightness, and the sports massage helps to rehabilitate athletes weary from slam-dunk marathons. Backs will peacefully glow with warmth and improved circulation after hot stones draw out the chill of inflexibility. A Perfect Day Spa also offers a pregnancy massage specifically designed to mitigate the aches of carrying around a perfectly formed, tiny adult.
The Spot Hair Salon and Spa is all about pampering and relaxation: in the cream-hued hair styling area, locks are snipped, colored, and woven into updos tailored to clients' specifications. The blue- and zebra-accented skin treatment room is the aesthetician's domain, where facials soothe and refresh. And for mani-pedis and lash extensions, clients make their way to the red accent wall. Here, reflected in round mirrors, detail-oriented staff touch up the fingers, toes, eyes, and vestigial wings of stylish ladies.
Suntrenz spans two floors, both of which are dedicated to making clients look their best by imparting them with a healthy-looking glow. The studio's roster of equipment includes UV tanning beds and booths from manufacturers such as Lotus and GardaSun, plus an airbrush unit that gently mists a bronzing solution and emits an adorable purring sound. Suntrenz's team also extends to massage therapists and medical technicians experienced in Botox.
