Performed by a beauty tech and skin savant of 23 years, the microdermabrasion treatments at Just for You Spa and Salon impart visages with a glowing veneer and a healthy, rejuvenated outlook. A thorough skin consultation kick-starts the 60-minute deluxe microdermabrasion and determines which dermal detriments are the most in need of healing. The skin technician then wields a diamond-tipped wand that gently abrades and removes the top layer of skinscape–a method seen as safer for delicate skin around the eyes nose and mouth than traditional microdermabrasion. Hyperpigmentation calms down, sun damage retreats to intracellular time-out, and minor scars and fine wrinkles quietly disappear, like the original Aunt Vivian on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air . Those who opt for the microdermabrasion package return to the candle-lit, earth-tone-tinted treatment room for two more 30-minute, noninvasive sessions. Each treatment involves no down time, so customers can continually exit the spa with skin that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.

Tall windows flood the lobby with natural light, illuminating leather couches and shelves lined with Viviere Skin Care products. A textured stone wall stands behind the front desk, and a wall fountain fills the air with a peaceful babbling.
Practice makes perfect at Loyal Hair Therapy. Before snipping a single strand of hair, each new stylist goes through the salon's 50-week advanced education program. The program includes hands-on instruction with a senior stylist, written examinations, and final tests in all areas of professional hairdressing. Stylists continue to further their skills after completing the program by attending classes, seminars, and advanced academies. Beyond their training, they also pay close attention to fashion trends, from emerging celebrity hairstyles to the number of hairs needed to pull off a perfect ponytail.
Though aloe is generally considered a necessity for already-tanned bodies, Body Mist Tanning introduces a new twist on the adage, offering spray tans that bronze bodies with aloe-based formulas. Yes, the salon’s two Mystic spray-tanning booths mist bodies with this naturally based substance, which takes minutes to apply and, much like the morning sun, reaches its darkest point in about 12 hours. The tanning spa also pairs its traditional bronzing services with a slew of cosmetic and relaxation-oriented services such as massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
