A licensed aesthetician and nail technician, owner Cris-Anne works alongside stylists and a massage therapist to attend to all of clients' indulgence needs. Certified in sugaring techniques, Cris-Anne uproots unwanted strands with an all-natural sugar paste devoid of the harsh chemicals, resins, and bumblebee dander that's found in many waxes. Stylists evict dead ends and dull colors in the salon; in the spa section, aestheticians cleanse and exfoliate faces, and expert kneaders force chronic pains to leave the body.
The team of licensed aestheticians at The Skin and Body Spa has a variety of ways to help guests relax and feel pampered. They massage physiques in styles from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology. The relaxing heat of hot stones helps melt away stress, while sport massages help athletes return to peak performance. They also polish nails during manicures and pedicures, and tend to lashes during eyelash extensions. For facials they have one strict rule: no pore-clogging ingredients are allowed near a client's face, leading to facials that incorporate ingredients from seaweed to electrical pulses. The spa-style organic seaweed facial hydrates skin and fights off acne with the same ingredient that keeps sea life blemish-free. The anti-aging ultrasonic facial, on the other hand, minimizes wrinkles with pulses of microcurrents, which prompt the skin to produce more collagen.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients? tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 250 locations across 21 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to sunbeds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the sunless, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin?s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios?s chariot within 46 seconds.
A makeover doesn't have to involve a drastic haircut, a new wardrobe, or a new government-supplied identity. That's why BG Makeovers Advanced Skin Care & Spa co. focuses on simple skin solutions. Inside the beauty hotspot, aestheticians treat a wide range of skin issues with their services. Blackheads and dull skin are no match for the manual exfoliation, extractions, and brightening mask included in the BG luxurious signature spa facial. Age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are visibly reduced thanks to the micro needling pen, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Acne and skin redness decrease with the Osmosis facial infusion, a gentle peel that employs the high-quality Osmosis skin care line.
Sun Tan City's tanning centers house an armada of bronzing vehicles designed to polish bodies, rain or shine. Tanners can burrow into the belly of any of four levels of tanning beds for 10- to 20-minute bronzing sessions. Fast-level beds slowly steep skin with a solid base tan, and Instant-level beds boldly bronze pelts with a larger ratio of UVA bulbs, coaxing melanin out with paparazzi-like attention and promises of leading roles. VersaSpa sunless, open-air booths airbrush epidermises with a water-soluble plant-based solution that goes on evenly, resists staining clothes, and, unlike rolling around in a puddle of fudge, darkens skin without leaving a sticky residue.
At The Sanctuary Spa, visitors escape the hustle and bustle of the outside world with relaxing and beautifying services performed by a veteran cast of aestheticians, makeup artists, and massage therapists. Facials thoroughly cleanse and calm epidermal expanses, and microdermabrasion treatments and peels exfoliate away dead skin cells, wrinkles, and forgotten notes to self. The staff’s beauty-boosting repertoire also includes eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, airbrush tanning services, waxing, and vajazzling. For a tranquil way to celebrate special events, such as upcoming nuptials, clients can also schedule private parties at The Sanctuary Spa.
