AlySim Spa welcomes men and women to indulge in relaxing spa services ranging from soothing massages to body treatments buoyed by lavender or garden mint and algae. Using mineral-based, organic skincare products, the licensed aestheticians brighten complexions with youthful glows during customized facials. LumiLift rejuvenations combat signs of aging by restoring the skin's natural elasticity, and collagen lip treatments use sugar-cane crystals to exfoliate peeling skin and grant a natural, rosy color more effectively than just eating candy canes.
As a child, aesthetician Erica Engler loved going to her grandmother’s beauty salon. She'd watch the ladies walk in looking one way and eagerly awaited seeing them leave all dolled up and ready to tackle the day. She noticed that with their physical makeover came also a mental transformation of increased confidence and relaxation, inspiring her to become a makeup artist.
Along with her team, Erica strives to make women feel more attractive and less stressed. In addition to her makeup services, she smoothes complexions with facials enhanced by Dermalogica products and hand and arm massages. Armed with Satin Smooth and NuFree wax, she swiftly removes hair from faces, arms, legs, and vestigial tails with waxing services. The massage therapists soothe aches and tension with sundry techniques including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and manual lymphatic drainage. With all of their services, Erica and her team aim to send clients back to their day-to-day activities feeling refreshed and more beautiful than a shimmering butterfly fluttering through a misty rainbow.
As a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Kristen Gum has the ability to both enhance beauty and reduce stress. She hand selects products during facials to counter skin-specific issues such as acne, dryness, or wrinkles. Her massages draw on the long, fluid strokes of the Swedish modality to quell tension and soothe muscular aches.

At Skin Clinic, owner Maria Anello Aponte creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments such as SmoothSculpt, which tones skin around the jowls and neck and smoothes away wrinkles without using any starch. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.
