While the scientific world and natural world are often at odds, the staff at Aesthetic Skin Care Center have found a way for them to exist symbiotically by using technologically advanced treatments and scientifically formulated products to restore the skin's natural beauty. The European-trained, licensed aestheticians address blemishes and signs of aging with services such as IPL sessions or LED-light therapy, and employ the latest permanent-makeup techniques to enhance facial features. With more than 20 years of experience in the skincare industry, the team can also recommend an appropriate, product-based treatment, including a plant-derived Green Peel designed by Dr. Med. Christine Schrammek, to diminish sun damage, scars, and tired-looking skin caused by over-basting the face with turkey jus.
The inviting spa boasts a clean, modern ambience, thanks to white-on-white walls and cabinets, and glass shelves neatly lined with jars and bottles of Vie Collection, Jean D'Arcel, and Phytomer products.
With products from Sothys and Bioline in hand, the beauty specialists at Mountain View Facial Beauty enhance clients’ natural glow. More than 10 types of facial—including an IPL photofacial—tend to specific skin concerns such as acne, fine lines, or razor irritation for men, imbuing complexions with moisture, vitamins, and anti-aging unguents. Waxing treatments strip skin of unwanted fur, while massage services tenderize the muscles underneath. Clients can alter their look more dramatically with permanent make-up, slimming body wraps, and weight-loss treatments that don’t involve running laps around a Great Lake.
Sumi, the licensed cosmetologist whose name graces Sumi Beauty Salon, welcomes patrons into a small, homestyle setting for relaxing services that range from threading and waxing to skincare and haircare treatments and henna tattoos. Reclining chairs and minimally decorated white walls erase distractions during sessions, and large lighted mirrors allow clients to keep close watch on their faces while Sumi goes to work. Staffers also stock beauty arsenals with Dermalogica and herbal products to help remedy skin maladies including acne, wrinkles, dryness, and overly cute dimples.
The relaxation experts at Juanita’s Bliss adhere to the ancient Indian system of ayurveda, a holistic approach to health and wellness that requires the use of plant-derived medicines, mineral-rich clays, and naturally processed oils. With those organic materials in tow, the spa’s team administers massages and facials that yield a variety of benefits, which can include better sleep, increased joint flexibility, and diminished scars and stretch marks. The team also helps balance bodily energy with reiki sessions.
A foot rub is more than just a foot rub at Harmony Reflexology. The massage therapists here knead specific points on the soles and hands in an effort to combat aches and ailments throughout the body. The idea behind the treatments is that various organ systems and glands respond to this strategically administered, healing pressure. The therapists also perform full-body treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages, which they can combine with reflexology for a soothing head-to-toe experience.
