A nominee of CityVoter's 2011 award for Best Day Spa, Pure Daily Bliss Day Spa houses a team of skillful aestheticians who assuage clients' skin conditions through a blend of holistic and med-spa treatments. Five massage modalities—including Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, and combination—soothe generally tense or injured muscles, and microdermabrasion and specialized facials treat specific skin conditions and rearrange freckle constellations. Pores receive fruit and floral infusions from back scrubs, as well as from custom facials crafted with blueberry, pumpkin, and pomegranate. Waxing and spray-tanning services smooth and shade epidermises, enabling bodies to discreetly snorkel in penny-filled wishing wells.
Sateen Tan & Spa grooms and pampers from styled head to pedicured toe with aesthetic services performed by an experienced staff. More than seven hair stylists fuss over strands, lengthening hair with extensions and smoothing frizz with keratin treatments. Sateen's licensed manicurist trims and polishes finger- and toe tips, and the licensed aesthetician employs her seven years of experience to soften faces and wax away unwanted hair. Clients can shade pallid skin with a professional airbrush-tanning session or bask in the UV rays of a medium-power bed, high-power standup booth, or ultrahigh-power hug from the sun's second cousin.
The name Facelogic offers a pretty transparent description of the spa’s intentions: treating facial skin issues in the most logical manner. The staff of skin experts relies on customizable and organically fueled facials that get their skin-healing power from vitamins, minerals, and trace elements to combat everything from acne to dry patches. The team of aestheticians can blast away skin problems ranging from acne to acne scars to clogged pores with microdermabrasion treatments, and they can whisk away unwanted hair and shape eyebrows with a bowl of warm wax or a stencil.
Every element of Tranquility at Doral contributes to its status as a great place to relax. The 2,000-square-foot facility looks every bit the part of a harmonious sanctuary: it’s filled with feng shui–inspired decor, elegant plants, and Buddha statues, and even includes a lotus garden and a patio for special events. Flickering candles illuminate the center's 10 treatment rooms, where aestheticians brighten and firm dry, oily, and aging skin with a handful of facial treatments and body wraps infused with chocolate, sea algae, and black pearl. The spa also offers advanced ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation for the skin, as well as tanning sessions in a standup SunDash 252 Radius booth. To relax before or after their treatments, clients can sip a glass of house wine as a technician sings a really slow version of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
The magic number is 9,600 for Focus Body Spa owner and registered nurse Suguna Jaikumar, who has assisted and consulted on that many surgeries over the last decade. Since then, Suguna has transitioned from intensive care and surgical units to the more serene atmosphere of her med spa, where she and her team consult with women and men regarding their aesthetic treatment options. The spa's options range from chemical peels and permanent makeup to colon hydrotherapy and henna design. Focus Body Spa is outfitted with advanced equipment, including lasers to remove unsightly veins, medical injections to plump wrinkles, and photofacials to erase sun spots that keep spelling out your birth year on your forehead.
Tranquility Day Spa’s massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians whisk visitors away on a cloud of relaxation with a menu of spa services and packages. The skincare team specializes in facials that remedy a variety of epidermal maladies, such as acne and the effects of aging, and nonsurgical facelifts that rely on enzymes and amino acids to stimulate collagen growth and improve skin's elasticity. The spa's arsenal of body-care treatments includes contouring wraps, scrubs, and eight types of massage, which treat pains caused by a stressful week at work or a long day of avoiding work by hiding the office water cooler.
