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.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
I supplement my main services with LED light therapy and 24K nano-gold collagen gel masks.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
I customize my treatments according to my clients' needs. I like to do combination treatments. The reason my clients love them so much is that they see results immediately. All my treatments are very result-oriented.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Having my own proprietary blends, I'm consistently striving to create better products by using the best and, in some cases, very exclusive ingredients, such as the Swiss apple stem-cell extract. I'm also very proud of the edelweiss stem cell with advanced technologies, such as nanotechnology.
Skin Institute's AHA/Kojic peel utilizes alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, and kojic acid to piece together a peel with properties to pulverize blemishes, blotches, and bad skin. The AHA, common in many skincare products, exfoliates the epidermis, casting out dead skin cells like autumn leaves from the closet. AHA is also reported to iron out wrinkles and ax acne. Kojic acid, a natural by-product of a Japanese mushroom, helps to lighten spots of skin darkened by increased melanin deposits. Put in peel form, this clinical concoction cocoons facial skin, allowing a beautiful hummingbird of smooth skeletal sheathing to emerge after 45 minutes.
Inspired by conversations with women from across the globe, the founders of Vitalis created complete wellness programs that help clients with limited free time to meet and maintain weight goals, find balance, and feel healthy. They realized that women juggling motherhood, careers, and bowling pins didn't have hours to devote to exercise and dieting, so they gathered a team of nutritional experts and fitness specialists to assist these women in finding time-effective exercise and diet plans, such as using a vibrating power plate to speed up weight loss. The team combines these plans with advanced equipment to slim bodies, banish cellulite, or detoxify systems and move patrons further along the path to confidence and health.
Waxing seems like a simple beauty treatment?but at Wax Spa, there's more to it than meets the eye. First off, aestheticians must be licensed to ensure safe, effective treatments, and the wax is imported from Europe. Then, there's the strict policy against recycling wax and spatulas, which ensures a germ-free salon.
The team complements their waxes with an array of body contouring treatments, which rely on technology ranging from ultrasound waves to radio frequencies, which is a cosmetic treatment designed to tighten skin without the need for an incision or recovery time. The treatment uses radio frequencies to uniformly heat the dermis, or inner layer of skin, to tighten and help initiate the production of new collagen. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure may take anywhere from 15 minutes for a facial to upwards of an hour for a full body treatment. The salon also brightens complexions with diamond microdermabrasion, which sloughs away dead surface skin to reveal the bright, youthful-looking skin beneath it. And no matter the treatment, each team member takes a customer-centered approach to their services, and helps to cultivate a warm atmosphere that puts clients at ease.
