The glycolic peel utilizes a safe chemical solution that, when applied, causes the face’s dead skin cells to slough away ($125). Eradicating these dead skin cells will smooth out the skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles, and improve its overall appearance, resulting in a radiating glow without the hassle of training lightning bugs to follow you around in a constant swarm. The Visia complexion analysis ($75) is a computer-calculated skin scrutinization that plots results as a visual diagram, enabling each person's pelt to compare itself to thousands of others of the same age and skin type. The data can then be used to help plan and monitor a proper anti-aging treatment, helping patients gird themselves against the ravages of Father Time and his magical face-smooshing ray gun.

Organic tanning solutions—applied meticulously by hand to the face or body—adhere to skin for up to seven days. Newly minted tans literally sparkle with the addition of “shimmer shots,” spray-on applications of body glitter designed to reflect the light of flashbulbs and oncoming headlights. Aside from facial and body treatments, the spa hosts cosmetics classes that teach students the tricks of the makeup trade.
