Dr. Jennifer Bonnett's crew of highly trained skin specialists swaddles facades with nourishing chemical peels. The silk peel's gentle exfoliants slough off skin ravaged by elements and weighed down by Mardi Gras masks, clearing a path for skin serums to penetrate deep into the epidermis. Skin consultants calibrate a solution to combat each patient's particular facial affliction, from acne to fine lines to discoloration. Alternatively, the pumpkin peel draws upon the gourd's cache of nutrients to restore skin to shiny splendour. Salicylic acid whisks away rough skin cells, and enzymes and vitamins introduce themselves to facial terrains. After treatment, clients may experience flushed skin for about 30 minutes, not unlike the effect caused by a 30-minute game of spin the bottle. Confidential, complimentary consultations empower clients to hone in on their ideal treatment.
Shades of Green's knowledgeable gardeners invite green thumbs to traipse past more than 1,000 varieties of hostas, day lilies, perennials, and other ornamental greenery. Ever-changing display gardens allow customers to witness how plants behave in a garden setting, as opposed to potted on a shelf or trapped in a self-destructing back vault. Home gardeners can bedeck lawns in layers of verdant hostas, such as the hearty, blue-tinged Belgian andorian ($25) or the On Stage hosta ($15), boasting an eye-dazzling mound of yellow-centred leaves and lavender flowers. Additionally, a diverse collection of day lilies provides a reason for the sun to get out of bed in the morning, and fiery-red anzac ($7) and pale-lavender-pink Daring Deception ($12) proudly display their colour-wheel prowess.
