Glow Face & Body’s 90-minute antioxidant facial aims to exile fine lines and wrinkles from façades with a slew of topical treatments. A soothing moisturizer tangos with antioxidants across the facial dance floor, softening skin, encouraging collagen production, and collecting high marks for footwork from judgmental eyebrows. Meanwhile, a vitamin C laced serum and an all-natural herbal cleanser join forces to hunt down free radicals with an aim to stymie the aging process. Each epidermal hero comes to patrons’ rescue within one of the spa’s warmly hued treatment rooms, where aestheticians also cosset clients with complimentary consultations, product samples, and symbolically melting clocks.
Aesthetician Christine Zimmerman executes Vasculyse treatments to banish vascular blemishes ranging from broken capillaries to skin tags. During the treatment, a handheld device emits a low-level energy current to force the cells that compose the imperfections into a form of coagulation, after which the body absorbs them. The device's tiny tip, similar in width to a piece of thread, targets even minuscule marks such as ruby points or drops of nail polish that help patients to tell one elbow from the other. Although minor marks can clear up after one visit, harder-to-treat lesions such as telangiectasia and spider angioma may require up to three sessions to eradicate. Sessions last approximately 20 minutes, and most clients report only a slight pinching feeling, similar to crowd-surfing on hermit crabs.
A warm smile and a complimentary cup of coffee greets each client that sets foot in Flair For Hair, a Paul Mitchell salon owned by master designer Joyce-Lyn Altieri and staffed by a team of Paul Mitchell educators. A team member then escorts clients to the Lather Lounge where stylists cleanse strands with indulgent shampoo sessions peppered with head and neck massages. After a careful consultation, stylists break out the scissors or spend some time concocting custom hues at the Color Bar. In addition to facial waxing and makeup services, stylists also set curly strands straight with a 45-minute, formaldehyde-free Bio Ionic KeraSmooth treatment that lasts up to 12 weeks. Before clients leave, stylists demonstrate how to use the latest tools and products to maintain their new styles without resorting to concrete wigs.
The staff members at C Salon & Spa take special care to ensure that all clients leave feeling refreshed and beautiful. In their warm-yellow salon, they offer hair services, including cuts, color, extensions, and weaves. In their earth-toned treatment rooms, they offer a wide selection of custom spa services. These range from soothing mud body wraps to 24-karat gold facials to waxing and vajazzling. No matter the service, though, they want guests to leave looking and feeling great, inside and out.
The cozy be-lasered emporium of beauty services is studded with plush armchairs, warm earth-toned walls, and friendly professionals ready to gently laze away worries with the power of a Candela hair reduction laser. Laser light is a quick and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods.
Staffed by a team of creative styling professionals and stocked with high-quality haircare and skincare products, 221 Post A Salon is a hub of fashionable makeovers. Stylists build upon their skillful scissor work with coloring, glazing, foils, and Brazilian hair-smoothing treatments. Skincare specialists add a personal touch to their facials with skin analysis and neck, shoulder, and scalp massages. Amid pastel purple walls and chic furniture, manicurists fuss about fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and bridal parties prepping for the cameras can opt for styling and makeup applications—as well as free beverages and pastries for groups of more than five.
