As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn?t come easily. That?s why all of her spa?s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog?s favorite chair.
Spa BLVD Parties' founder Karina Cartagena built a business model around making girls feel the warm glow of friendship and self-esteem, treating her young clients to personalized spa parties with lustrous nail polish and snazzy new hairdos. Her young clients leave the stresses of grade school and their secret office job at the door, settle into a comfy robe, and munch on cupcakes and treats, while moms and dads relax with a soothing cup of coffee. Nestled in a lounge bordered by hot pink walls and filled with fluffy white sofas, kids socialize over soft drinks as they receive makeovers and pose for glamour portraits during fashion shows. A wide range of parties and packages entertain future rock stars and style mavens, such as three-week spa camps or mommy-daughter bonding spa days.
The trained technicians at Ana Camargo Skin & Day Spa enhance arm aesthetics with skin-tightening treatments. Wielding TriPollar equipment, which delivers radio-frequency energy deep into the hypodermis, the aestheticians target superficial and deep fat layers to shrink cellulite and increase collagen regeneration for arms that look younger and tighter while waving or opening pickle jars. The TriPollar units heat up the body’s accumulated fat deposits, accelerating metabolism and forcing the cells to release fatty acids for disposal by the circulatory and lymphatic systems. The unit's three electrodes, which limit the fat-blasting force to the treatment area alone, allow for a noninvasive and nearly painless treatment, unlike earlier slimming treatments, which caused the current supermodel-overpopulation crisis. Although results may differ, many may see tighter arms in as little as one treatment.
Hair Frenzy Salon employs a staff of highly-trained stylists who have a passion for making people feel beautiful, fashionable, and confident. The team of stylists hailing from all over the United States, the Caribbean, and Central and South America work their magic on all types of hair, having earned the most advanced technical abilities of their trade through extensive training and apprenticeships. These specialists use L'Or?al Professional color and K?rastase hair-care products to shape hair with precision cuts, or reimagine scalps with Redken smoothing treatments, coloring, and Ouidad curling procedures. Stylists can also prepare clients for weddings, nights on the town, or fancy bank heists with special-event updos and makeup applications, while skin and nail techs pamper and prettify with manicures, waxing, and threading treatments.
It's only 10 a.m., but it's teatime at Eden Spa. That's because a client has scheduled a green-tea stone massage, which involves relaxing muscles with heated stones that have been soaked in the rich liquid. The idea is that absorbing the tea will stimulate the body in the same way that drinking it can, leading the accompanying massage strokes to have a greater healing effect.
It seems the center will try all kinds of ingredients to lend its services oomph. Another massage uses bamboo sticks to promote circulation and relieve pain, and each skin treatment relies on a different cream or mask, from the sugar glow's honey-and-oil blend to the anti-wrinkle treatment's collagen extracts and horsetail (which is actually a plant and not what it sounds like: a story about a man who likes oats so much people call him "Horse").
