Marie Theresa Davis wears a number of hats in the beauty industry. She is a licensed aesthetician, massage therapist, nail technician, and certified personal fitness trainer. The well-rounded owner of House of Chi Spa uses all of her expertise during a variety of services, such as reiki treatments, acne-clearing facials, gel manicures, spray-tanning sessions, and weight-loss programs. She also eases sunburned skin with body wraps and applies permanent makeup to clients' faces.
As a child, Beniley Llorens watched her parents work at their salon in Guadalajara, Mexico, learning secrets of the beauty industry firsthand. Her passion for aesthetics led her to training in places such as Italy, Spain, France, and Japan before she opened a day spa in Guadalajara and eventually relocated to Miami. Now she owns Beniley Wellness Center & Spa, which recently moved to a new location, where she and her team use European techniques to perform facials, microdermabrasion, radio-frequency treatments, PEMF (pulse electromagnetic field therapy), and specializing particularly in waxing.
Not only do Llorens and her personally trained staff members perform waxing services?including upward of 70 Brazilian waxes per week, but Llorens has also developed her own line of skincare and cosmetic products.
Rejuvenate Doctor's board-certified physicians help individuals not only treat the signs of aging but also prevent and even reverse them by focusing specifically on hormonal health. Following the idea that "we age because hormones decline," founder and medical director Dr. Tina Miranda and her med-spa staff strive to tailor anti-aging treatment plans that will stop that decline faster than you can say, "Stop declining, you stupid jerks!" The team uses complimentary consultations to devise a plan that may combine hormone-replacement therapy with nutrition counseling, exercise, and sleep techniques. As part of its restorative treatments, the team also works to reverse aging on the outside to help patients both feel and look younger. The staffers use cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Restylane, laser skin peels, and time machines to imbue even the most timeworn and wrinkle-riddled hides with youthful radiance.
The color scheme inside Seven Seas Spa & Salon transitions from chartreuse to cool blues, as if narrating, in color, the space's shift from the liveliness of the friendly stylists on the hair-salon floor to the relaxation of the soothing spa services. Using all-natural Aveda products, the hair designers snip away and demonstrate the skills they've learned in the educational workshops they attend regularly to keep abreast of the latest cut, color, and styling trends. Equally savvy spa technicians work back in the spa space, lit by royal-blue bulbs and accented by cascading light fixtures and wavy white walls. Inside private treatment rooms, gentle facials and massages immerse clients in soothing scents and sensations as effectively as a jacuzzi whose water has been replaced with aromatherapy oil.
Upon arrival at Facial Spa and Body, stress immediately begins to melt away when a cup of tea or coffee is placed in your hands and you gaze at the robin's-egg-blue walls while waiting for facials, body wraps, and cellulite treatments. The aesthetician then leads you into a private room stocked with products from top skincare brands such as SkinCeuticals, Obagi, and La Roche-Posay. In addition to these brands, Facial Spa and Body also sells Colombian Fajas Salome shaping girdles, which contour waistlines, improve posture, and protect midsections from sucker punches.
Instead of offering quick beauty pick-me-ups, the staff at Premier Day Spa takes the long view?in this day and age, people are living longer than ever, which means that anti-aging skincare is more essential than it's ever been. To that end, the spa calls on imported skincare formulas from Guinot-Paris in facial treatments that take a proactive approach to halting the signs of aging rather than making up for them by wearing pigtails constantly. One such service is the Hydradermie Lift, which uses galvanic current to exercise facial muscles and help rejuvenate sagging features. Of course, Premier Day Spa focuses on more than just aesthetic results?clients can release tension and center their minds with more than a dozen massage styles that range from classic Swedish strokes to Asian specialties such as shiatsu and reflexology. The spa experts also perform detoxifying body treatments, refine digits with mani-pedis, and enhance faces with lash extensions and permanent makeup. With this atmosphere centered on relaxation, the spa does not permit children to accompany adults during their visits.
