The expert aestheticians at Exquisite Skincare and Waxing mollycoddle guests from the neck up with facials custom-fit to their skin types and strengthened with Dermalogica tonics and salves. The Dermalogica facial commences with a mapping that analyzes the face’s topography and plots the most direct bus route from the chin to the forehead. A skinsmith then double cleanses and exfoliates the visage, ridding it of stubborn makeup, dirt, and past-their-prime skin cells. Warm steam opens up pores before a gentle extraction, if necessary, whisks away blemish-causing bacteria from the face. The façade refurbishing continues with a customized mask and application of serums, toner, eye cream, and a hydrating moisturizer. A light facial massage concludes the pampering, transporting minds to places of relaxation—like a sandy beach or the inside of Paul Bunyan’s pillow. Exquisite Skincare ensconces visitors in a serene setting decked with lavender paint, glowing chandeliers, and fresh flowers.
Viola's European Esthetics Studio chases a single, simple mission?to make clients feel better. With a 20-year industry veteran and staff beautician Violetta Dudek at its helm, the studio performs an extensive list of rejuvenating services, including deep-cleansing facials, Japanese manicures, eyelash extensions, and electrolysis. Each begins with a consultation in order to tailor treatment to the client's needs, and the studio can even use a high-resolution computer skin analyzer to pinpoint collagen quality and check skin for spyware. Electrolysis sessions vary in duration based on the client's needs, with a single session lasting a minimum of 10 minutes.
As the aestheticians and nail technicians at Green DragonFly Aesthetics beautify clients with custom facials, waxing, and mani-pedis using all-natural products, they consider sanitation, hygiene, and safety are of utmost importance. As a division of the Kingston Foot and Ankle Clinic, they follow the same medical-grade sterilization protocols and methods to ensure their guests enjoy safe pampering. Each of their all-natural products—including Colorevolution Mineral Makeup and Pink Himalayan Salt soaps—is free of harmful chemicals. When the staff members aren't rejuvenating complexions with microdermabrasion or decorating fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures, they also accentuate guests' natural beauty with permanent makeup.
