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.
At Vaira's European Holistic Skin Care, Vaira pampers the epidermis with European spa treatments and a natural harvest of soothing herbs and scrubs. An experienced aesthetician who trained in Europe, Vaira aims to create a relaxing atmosphere for clients while providing personalized treatments. She uses exfoliating facial creams, which brim with natural ingredients such as collagen, essential oils, and vitamin C enzymes, all of which team up to imbue skin with the softness and sleekness of a laminated teddy bear. Aromatherapy calms the senses as she buffs away blemishes and expired skin cells during herbal body treatments and revitalizing sea-salt scrubs. She is also certified in Micro-Needling, a procedure which can help reduce signs of aging and improve skin tone. Vaira offers a pumpkin enzyme facial, which combines multiple forms of natural enzymes, gently sloughing off dead skin cells to help give a more healthy glow.
Painful needles and scalpels have no place at Biotone Skin Clinic. Instead, skilled aestheticians draw from a well of noninvasive treatments as they erase the lines and wrinkles caused by aging, sun damage, and sleeping on a pile of extension cords. Visages can absorb gentle infrared rays and microcurrents during photo-rejuvenation facials and nonsurgical face-lifts, each capable of tightening and toning loose skin. The team's diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand exfoliates not only the face and neck but also the chest and body, and potent chemical peels remove layers of superficial skin and the imperfections that go with it. Aside from returning skin to its nascent state, the Biotone staff also keeps eyes, lips, and brows always ready for a special occasion with permanent makeup.
Hairquarters has cultivated a mature elegance throughout its 40 years in business. In the salon, sconces are mounted on the wall like dark wineglasses, casting a glow on the polished hardwood floors. Vintage mirrors reflect the stylists as they transform tresses with high-end Keratase and Aveda products. Deeper into the facility, pedicure nooks outfitted with black leather banquettes and gold throw pillows offer a soothing retreat, enhanced by the rippling water of footbaths. Guests may also relax in a private room as facials or microdermabrasions are administered by the spa’s skilled esthetician
