With yellow clapboard siding and a covered front porch, the cottage that houses Y'Sharis Spa puts visitors at ease with its homespun charm. This commitment to calm extends beyond the front door: the spa staff incorporates extra pampering touches into virtually every treatment. In addition to cleansing and moisturizing skin during facials, they soothe senses with aromatherapy oils or soothing paraffin dips; mani-pedis add on everything from warm herbal baths to enzyme scrubs. During reflexology treatments and massages, licensed therapists encourage relaxation more directly by correcting energetic imbalances or loosening tightly knotted muscles. For clients seeking a similar treatment experience at home, Y'Sharis Spa sells its own line of cosmetic products made entirely from natural ingredients and clients' relaxed "ahhs."
Dr. Holly Yamada, Medical Director of HaLa Skin & Body, is a board-certified physician specializing in both aesthetics and general care. But if the mythical College of Ultimate Pampering existed, she would have graduated summa cum laude. At her clinic, Dr. Yamada oversees a skilled staff as they treat clients to relaxing, rejuvenating treatments. Gentle skincare services, including microdermabrasions, facials, and peels, restore youthful glows, while injected cosmetics and fillers effectively stop the aging clock. Laser services employ noninvasive beams to remove unwanted hair or address acne blemishes. Extending their external expertise to the internal, the clinic's specialists also offer personal Pilates sessions and holistic health and nutrition consultations.
A cast of aestheticians, massage therapists, and beauty professionals work under one roof at Nani Skin Care, where they keep skin glowing with help from products by Bioelements Professional Skin Care. Facials, customized to skin type and condition, incorporate deep cleansing with invigorating massage to restore a vibrant, youthful appearance to dull, aging complexions. Nani Skin care also offers an array of other treatments. For skin below the neck, the aestheticians administer a slew of spa treatments, including exfoliating salt glows and relaxing footbaths.
During 60- and 90-minute massages, aromatherapeutic scents guide muscles into relinquishing any stress or tension. Adults and teens alike can stop in for a Youngblood mineral-makeup lesson or schedule a makeup application to prepare for a wedding day or a night full of dancing and plotting to steal the queen’s crown.
