Led by Dr. Arnold Rivera and PA-C Scott Callahan, Dolce Vida Medical Spa's skilled staff performs high-tech skin and body rejuvenations alongside relaxing spa treatments. Light-based body-sculpting sessions, IPL skincare, and injectable solutions such as Dysport and Radiesse help patrons remain youthful without wearing their senior-class photo as a mask. Drawing from an apothecary of high-end skincare products from Éminence, SkinTherapeutic, and Revision Skin Care, aestheticians nurture façades with specialized masks, and massage therapists ease tension from torsos with hot stones, lava shells, frozen oven mitts, or bare hands.
Sunsations offers a wide breadth of tanning options, including traditional beds, standup tanning, and spray booths. The Mystic spray tan outwits the sun by bronzing human statues without exposing them to UV rays. Silver level tans give a range of solar-powered options, such as the Suncapsule, 12 minutes in a stand-up booth at 7,000 watts, and the Orion, which tracks down 15 minutes of tanning with three facials at 5,000 watts (only available at Norwalk location). Tanning neophytes can ask the friendly staff at Sunsations what type of tanning bed and lotion are the right fits for their skin types. Dogs must be 192 years old to enjoy Sunsations, while humans only need to be 16.
The expert stylists at Today’s Salon & Spa skillfully frame faces with haircuts and highlights. After consulting with clients, scissors-wielders snip and trim fringe to transform cranial gardens into chic coiffures before enlivening mop tops with partial highlights. Tress-tamers saturate manes with up to 10 foils, adding flair to the noggin and saving strands from impending gray or transparent hues. The Moroccan-oil treatment infuses locks with moisture, helping to restore a shiny sheen to dull or dry manescapes. The styling package culminates with a blow-dry and style, which releases newly refined ‘dos back into the wild with more style than an evening gown made of fashion magazines.
Hair Today's seasoned stylists snip and primp their clients' manes with products such as Redken, Matrix, and American Crew, accentuating flattering features and keeping coifs in vogue or defiantly out of it. A shampoo cleans and freshens follicles, and a cut carves strands into enticing new forms, a two-step process as salutary as removing leaves and debris from a car's grill before brushing it with a full bucket of toothpaste. Head fronds can shift allegiance to another frequency along the spectrum of visible light after a partial color, and a supervening blow-dry finalizes the sleek new ‘do. Gentlemen, alternatively, can swing by the salon twice for a pair of 30-minute haircuts that keep domes trimmed and dapper enough to sweet-talk fedoras into never caving, no matter how much downward force a piggyback rider can exert on them.
