Clients at Southern Rays take control of their skin shades by using customizable UV- and sunless-tanning systems. Beds and booths come in six levels of UV intensity (up to a $25 value/session) so that clients can gradually prepare for the day when humans migrate to the sun. The Mystic Tan HD system (a $30 value/session) applies spritzings of UV-free tanning solution in the privacy of an individual chamber, and airbrush tanning paints pelts in each client’s most suitable shade. Southern Rays’ knowledgeable staff is always on hand to answer questions, provide tanning tips, and console useless sunbeams. Check the equipment page to see which services are offered at which locations.
Southern Tans’s Smart Tan--certified staff bronzes epidermises with three levels of traditional tanning and UV-free alternatives such as Mystic spray tanning. Before tanning sessions, guests can step inside the futuristic egg-shaped casing of a Hydration Station, which deeply hydrates and rejuvenates skin and helps to prepare clients for deeper tanning. Bodies may also benefit from other treatments available at the salon, including Lumière facials, non-invasive treatments that bathe visages in red-tinted light to prime collagen production while aiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by letting crows walk on your face.
Since opening its doors to the public and closing its portals to other, more dangerous dimensions in 1998, Rochelle Health & Wellness' staff has helped over 10,000 individuals lose weight and feel better about their skin and body. Multiple types of body wraps, including chocolate mint, tummy, and half-body wraps, help shrink waists when paired with detoxifying teas and cardio DVDs. In addition to fat-fighting treatments, aestheticians administer peppermint facials and nonsurgical face-lifts that work to rejuvenate sagging skin.
Wine is known to pair well with certain foods or moods. But at The Polish Bottle, a glass of wine is meant to enhance a soothing pedicure, and a margarita to complement a manicure. And while the drinks might obliterate the daily doldrums of each client, the staff focuses on the details of each service—from natural nail care and facials to waxing and eyebrow threading. The chic spot can even host parties and private events, such as bachelorette parties and newly minted jazz-hand shows.
The aestheticians at Esthetiques Skin Spa have all long held an interest in skincare, even dating back to childhood for one pro who gave herself mud-pie facials. While mud is conveniently left off the menu, the team does unfurl Intraceuticals products, glycolic-acid peels, and a Nuface microcurrent toning device to revitalize tired mugs and combat acne, sun spots, and fine lines. They also adorn fresh canvases with spray tans that leave bodies looking bronzed and beautiful.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the face's stratum corneum, or outermost surface of the skin. These dead cells stifle the under-face like a mother who coils her grown children in plus-sized swaddling cloths. At Mona Spa, expert aestheticians perform the procedure over the course of 45 minutes. Lie back and let their well-trained hands guide a Clarisonic cleaning brush over your facial region, ridding it of oppressive dirt and overly sentimental oil. The crystal-free cool microdermabrasion treatment comes next, followed by LED therapy delivered with gentle airflow to soothe your recently excavated baby skin. Top it all off with the gentle hug of a moisture mask that will protect your face from the harsh rays of the sun, especially useful if the sun is breaking into your house at night to watch your cable.
