Every time Linda Dang performs a facial, she tweaks her method slightly to account for the differences in individual skin types. A licensed medical aesthetician with more than 14 years expertise in anti-aging skincare, she offers more than a dozen facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, dermaculture Iontophoresis, and chemical peels. The variety of treatments ensures that she can offer her clients options for all skin types when they want to combat acne, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or overexposure to the sun. She also offers other cosmetic services, including permanent-makeup applications, micropigmentation, eyebrow tinting, and mole removal. Semipermanent eyelash extensions elongate natural lashes to eliminate the need for mascara and eyelash curlers, and can last indefinitely with proper home care and regular touch-ups.
RedCircle Personalized Weight Management, an Amerejuve sister company, uses seven components to help clients lose and keep off unwanted weight. The combination of these elements—a baseline assessment, cardiometabolic profiling, genetic profiling, meal-planning, personal training, metabolic supplements, and e-coaching—results in treatment plans customized to each client's metabolic rate and genetic profile. Rejecting a one-size-fits-all approach to slimming, RedCircle's staff creates detailed meal-plans and training strategies as individualized as the fingerprint of a snowflake.
Skinrevite is sensitive to sensitive skin. The center's Delphia Del Sol microdermabrasion equipment is built to give clients a choice: they can undergo regular crystal exfoliation, or they can choose crystal-free abrasive pads that are less likely to scratch thin or irritable skin. To multiply the effects of these treatments, the center also performs mini chemical facials, which diminish wrinkles and fine lines on the face without erasing the treasure map a pirate drew there when he couldn't find any scrap parchment. A particular specialty of the center is laser hair removal, which it adapts to each client's hair color and skin type to maximize its effectiveness.
Intense physical training marries relaxing spa services behind the distinctive geometric façade of Lux Fitness Spa. In the fitness arena, the sounds of cardio equipment play against words of encouragement spewed by deft personal trainers, who push clients toward their fitness goals. From helping casual exercisers shed pounds to guiding athletes through marathon running or extended bouts of standing at podiums, the trainers customize each individual fitness plan. They also focus on what goes into the body, enlisting supplements from the onsite store to complement an involved approach to nutrition and meal planning.
The other side of Lux hosts licensed aestheticians and massage therapists who take up the reins to pamper spent bodies. Using top-shelf products by Elemis and Bliss, they customize hydrating and blemish-banishing facials for men, women, and teens, and in the massage room, flush out toxins with special massages.
Imagine losing all of your hair—what would that do to your self-confidence and quality of life? With the belief that hair is much more than a fashion accessory, Untourage Salon Retreat owner Tanissa Carmon uses custom-fitted cranial hair prostheses to help clients to feel good about their appearance when dealing with hair loss, whether due to illness or heredity.
This dedication to giving people peace of mind also shows in Tanissa's other salon services, which range from stylish cuts to smoothing keratin treatments to seamless extensions—all of which begin with a complimentary consultation to determine each client's preferred look and salon nickname. As clients settle into cozy styling chairs, the 800-square-foot space reverberates with the sounds of experienced stylists snipping, smoothing, and lengthening 'dos backed by a soundtrack of instrumental jazz music.

In the Buddha room, tranquil statues oversee massages and facials under the soft light of candles and paper lamps. In the Village room, hanging lanterns illuminate rustic art as customers recline for facial treatments.
