A nominee of CityVoter's 2011 award for Best Day Spa, Pure Daily Bliss Day Spa houses a team of skillful aestheticians who assuage clients' skin conditions through a blend of holistic and med-spa treatments. Five massage modalities—including Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, and combination—soothe generally tense or injured muscles, and microdermabrasion and specialized facials treat specific skin conditions and rearrange freckle constellations. Pores receive fruit and floral infusions from back scrubs, as well as from custom facials crafted with blueberry, pumpkin, and pomegranate. Waxing and spray-tanning services smooth and shade epidermises, enabling bodies to discreetly snorkel in penny-filled wishing wells.
Mystic spray-tan booths and three types of UV tanning beds imbue skins with radiant glows inside Flawless Tanning Spa. Groups of four or more can bronze themselves en masse during a spray-tanning party, which tints each partygoer with a custom hue. Alternatively, a Sudatonic body-wrap system cocoons bodies in carefully calibrated amounts of infrared energy in order to burn up to 1,400 calories and zero tuna casseroles during each session.
Every element of Tranquility at Doral contributes to its status as a great place to relax. The 2,000-square-foot facility looks every bit the part of a harmonious sanctuary: it’s filled with feng shui–inspired decor, elegant plants, and Buddha statues, and even includes a lotus garden and a patio for special events. Flickering candles illuminate the center's 10 treatment rooms, where aestheticians brighten and firm dry, oily, and aging skin with a handful of facial treatments and body wraps infused with chocolate, sea algae, and black pearl. The spa also offers advanced ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation for the skin, as well as tanning sessions in a standup SunDash 252 Radius booth. To relax before or after their treatments, clients can sip a glass of house wine as a technician sings a really slow version of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
The magic number is 9,600 for Focus Body Spa owner and registered nurse Suguna Jaikumar, who has assisted and consulted on that many surgeries over the last decade. Since then, Suguna has transitioned from intensive care and surgical units to the more serene atmosphere of her med spa, where she and her team consult with women and men regarding their aesthetic treatment options. The spa's options range from chemical peels and permanent makeup to colon hydrotherapy and henna design. Focus Body Spa is outfitted with advanced equipment, including lasers to remove unsightly veins, medical injections to plump wrinkles, and photofacials to erase sun spots that keep spelling out your birth year on your forehead.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
