Marilyn Oliveira is licensed as an aesthetician both here and abroad, and for the past 20 years, she has helped to rejuvenate skin and bodies with European-style beauty-boosting treatments. She customizes her signature facials to bring out the best in every skin type and regularly employs organic and anti-aging products. Her brushes dust makeup across the cheeks of brides and their wedding parties, and her wax de-fuzzes brows, lips, bodies, and permanently affixed sweaters to leave physiques beach-ready. She also performs manicures, pedicures, and other services inside her private, relaxed quarters within Martin’s Salon at Brick Market Place.
Metamorphosis: a change of physical form, structure, or substance especially by supernatural means. It's fitting then that licensed aesthetician Stephanie Petty chose to name her skincare spa Metamorphose Skin Care Studio, given her uncanny ability to transform the complexions for the better. Drawing on more than six years of experience, Stephanie can reverse the signs of aging with collagen restoration treatments, or hydrate dry skin with extracts of botanicals and vitamin C. Specialty waxing services are also available.
Oceana Tanning is an oasis for beauty-seekers, complete with live plants, tropical murals, and a bamboo hut that doubles as a reception desk. Those looking for a midsummer glow can tan in one of the standup booths, or opt for a UV-free spray tan. The staff also spruces up smiles with teeth-whitening treatments.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
At Bella Piel, licensed aesthetician Debbie Cunha cossets the epidermal canvas with aesthetic services that rely on the beautifying powers of light. During light-focused services, Debbie beams each different shade of the visible spectrum onto the skin to treat corresponding skin problems. Red light helps reverse sagging skin and promote fat burning, blue light saves sensitive skin from acne and inflammation, and green light helps reduce under-eye circles and gives the body the ok to move forward with its TV pilot. Aside from color-coded cosmetic treatments, she also cleanses, exfoliates, and massages visages during facials and uses a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand to slough dead skin, lighten scars, and increase collagen production.
Organical Botanical offers holistic health services and places emphasis on treating Mother Nature the right way. The pamper palace's well-trained staff uses a slew of handcrafted, organic massage oils and creams to provide the therapeutic benefits of massage. The organic Swedish massage uses a soothing full-body technique, featuring flowing strokes and organic, cold-pressed vegetable oils to relieve stress and prepare the body to be pelted by children throwing containers of Mrs. Dash. For a full-body relaxation experience with the added benefit of soothing smells, the aromatherapy massage balances wobbly mental and physical states with a massage paired with selected organic essential oils. Weekend warriors or the once-injured can find reprieve with the deep-tissue therapy, a treatment that targets deeper layers of muscles in a specific problem zone to loosen taut muscles and increase the ability to squeeze into ductwork.
