The aestheticians at Esthetiques Skin Spa have all long held an interest in skincare, even dating back to childhood for one pro who gave herself mud-pie facials. While mud is conveniently left off the menu, the team does unfurl Intraceuticals products, glycolic-acid peels, and a Nuface microcurrent toning device to revitalize tired mugs and combat acne, sun spots, and fine lines. They also adorn fresh canvases with spray tans that leave bodies looking bronzed and beautiful.
The skin whisperers at For Your Skin Only Day Spa customize treatments to clients' individual skin types to ensure safe and effective skincare. Detailed skin analysis of every face gives aestheticians the knowledge they need to pick and choose from the spa's sumptuous selection of specialized pharmaceutical-grade products. Clients can relax in private treatment rooms serenely appointed with elegant artwork, candles, and aromatic lavender bushes softly humming peaceful music.
Innovation is alive and well at Pilates of Collierville, a wellness studio whose instructors specialize in Stott Pilates, an updated system based on the original Pilates technique developed in the 1920s. Stott augments the original core-strengthening workouts of Pilates with new forms of resistance, building students’ muscles with equipment such as exercise mats, resistance bands, and wading pools filled with half-churned butter.

Since opening its doors to the public and closing its portals to other, more dangerous dimensions in 1998, Rochelle Health & Wellness' staff has helped over 10,000 individuals lose weight and feel better about their skin and body. Multiple types of body wraps, including chocolate mint, tummy, and half-body wraps, help shrink waists when paired with detoxifying teas and cardio DVDs. In addition to fat-fighting treatments, aestheticians administer peppermint facials and nonsurgical face-lifts that work to rejuvenate sagging skin.
Richard & Co. Salon's team of experienced stylists trims and tames frolicking follicles, creating well-structured shapes for round, oval, and trapezoidal faces. Chop off long locks (women's cut, $45) and start sporting an eye patch to become your own evil yet stylish doppelganger. After tress transformation, a Keratin Intense RX treatment (a $50 value, or $30 through October 31) rebuilds hair, repairing chemically damaged strands and reducing future noogie-related breakage. Unlike other conditioning treatments concocted from flavorless jell-o and flat ginger ale, Keratin Intense RX packs a pure keratin protein punch to whip surly manes into shape.
