There are many ways to remove unwanted body hair, but very few methods are actually permanent. Elizabeth Kelly, electrologist and owner of Essential Skin Electrology & Day Spa, understands her clients’ frustrations regarding hair that won’t go away and works together with men and women to gently depilate even their most stubborn body areas. That level of attention also extends to her spa’s other focuses, including skincare. In each service, aestheticians use Dermalogica or Pevonia Botanica products and deeply cleanse faces with more than a dozen different facials customized for dryness, signs of aging, or funny faces that eventually got stuck that way. They also whisk away stress with a handful of massages, each of which may be paired with a therapeutic essential oil.
The staff at Galina’s European Skincare takes the term “golden glow” literally. One of its specialties is the Golden Glow mask, a moisturizing blend of oat peptide, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and 24-karat gold dust. This sparkly treatment boosts collagen production and moisturizes skin so that faces look fresher and better able to guarantee a currency. Though not all of the spa’s services incorporate precious metals, they do work to improve the look and feel of skin. The staff members can suggest a combination of facials, peels, microdermabrasion, and anti-aging LED therapy to combat each client's particular skin issues. They also perform manicures and pedicures, apply eyelash extensions, and remove hair permanently using electrolysis.
During foot-reflexology sessions, a member of the Tri Zen Massage & Reflexology staff presses thumbs and fingers into specific foot points, triggering relief from pain and stress. This treatment also ramps up sub-ankle blood flow and helps drooping arches perk up like dogs hearing the high-pitched whistle of their favorite teakettle. Swedish massages unclench stiff musculature, aid healing, and foster uninterrupted slumber with a blend of five techniques ranging between flowing strokes and swift raps. Alternatively, soothing fingers work their way into tucked-away tissues during deep-tissue massages, applying intense pressure that translates into decreased tension and an increased chance you’ll be able to tie yourself into a pretzel. Deep-tissue techniques can also help to unfurl chronic kinks and assuage postural imperfections, mobility problems, and sports injuries.
