Live Love Day Spa's licensed aestheticians and massage therapists work together to bolster inner wellness and imbue exteriors with a healthy glow. Magenta orchids peek out from all corners of the spa, lending their fragrances to the air while steady hands uproot unwanted fuzz and turn back the clock on complexions with an array of organic facials, vitamin C peels, and anti-aging treatments. Massage therapists ease physical and emotional tension with a slew of relaxing modalities, calling upon heated stones, aromatherapy oils, and deep-tissue techniques to relieve aches caused by skeletons trying to break loose of their human shells.
Urban Lash’s staff focuses their expertise on two particular beautifying treatments: airbrush tanning and eyelash extensions. For the former, they use Infinity Sun products rife with botanicals, antioxidants, and walnut extract. To lengthen eye fringe, they use anywhere from 20 to 90 lashes per eye to subtly augment a current look or create bold new ocular art.
Paradise Cosmetic Medspa owner Katrina McDaniel has opened more than 200 med spas across the U.S. during her impressive career. She has cultivated an eye for safe, effective high-tech skin and body treatments. At the clinic, licensed laser technicians consult with patients and prepare them for each minimally invasive procedure, which can range from banishing old tattoos to removing nail fungus with laser therapy. Noninvasive Zerona and Lapex treatments employ advanced laser technology to spot reduce fat deposits and set up a laser-tripwire perimeter to prevent the fat from sneaking back in.
Licensed wax aesthetician Vanessa doesn't attempt to juggle a range of spa services. Instead, she draws on her more than six years of experience to lead a team of aestheticians trained to achieve the perfect, gentle wax. She uses organic hard wax, which is sought after because it grips the hair shaft and, like the cheapest temporary tattoos, doesn't stick to the skin. The result in long-lasting smooth skin with minimal irritation.
With speedy waxologists and specially formulated European waxes made just for its clients, it's no wonder that Bombshell Waxing opened a second location just one year after its inception in 2010. That's also largely due to the passion of owner Shelly Reagon, who is very hands-on with her business and who can often be found in scrubs and an apron herself.
She writes in Sophisticated Woman Magazine that it's important for women to go to a reputable salon for a wax, one that never double-dips its waxes and knows eyebrows aren't just caterpillars napping on the forehead. She also talks about her belief that brows are "sisters, not twins"?that it's most natural and beautiful if brows both look polished, but they don't need to be identical. Another revolutionary idea of hers is that waxing should be an experience a client looks forward to, so her salons offer vajazzling services and onsite boutiques where clients can shop for lingerie that shows off freshly bare skin.
Peppermint and pure sugar cane are on the menu, but they're not for eating. The peppermint fragrances a warm footbath, and the pure sugar cane acts as scrub for lips or tongues with no self-control. These indulgent ingredients appear in various services at Serenity Day Spa and Gifts, where guests can spend up to a full day relaxing and beautifying with spa packages that combine mani-pedis, facials, and massages. Body-contouring wraps detoxify while they tighten and tone skin, and specially designed facials address the common skincare concerns of men, women, and teens.
