Vie the Spa is an exclusive women’s spa that caters to female well-being with body-swaddling detoxifying wraps. Developed by biochemists from UCLA Medical Center, the herbal formulation of a M’lis Detox Contour wrap encourages circulatory lymphatic flow, which cleanses tissues without laundry detergent guesswork. Clients relax in a warm cocoon that keeps the skin and body hydrated as cellulite dissipates and up to 14 inches melt away from forms like butter on a Saharan sidewalk.
Licensed and certified spa technicians welcome guests into a world of pampering and relaxation at Image Resorts Beauty & Tanning Salon. They offer a wide variety of services that tend to hair, nails, skin, and well-being using products from brands such as Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Matrix. Stylists snip, wash, and straighten hair as well as add weaves and fresh color. Nail technicians dote upon fingers and toes with manicures, pedicures, and odes that detail the long history of hand turkeys. Other services include soothing massages and facial treatments, as well as tanning, waxing, and body wraps.
Salon Nani's expert nail professional, April Shafer, treats hardworking digits to manicures and pedicures using both vegan and paraben-free products. During manicures, April cleanses hands, treats cuticles, and sculpts nails before they plunge mitts into a bath more soothing than a bedtime story read by Morgan Freeman. Clients relax as deft digits massage hands' weary muscles and cover skin in a revitalizing blend of essential oils. Pedicures treat lower appendages to the same lineup of services, and all nails emerge from their makeover donning a vibrant coat of polish. Customers opting for Shellac service upgrade their finger shields with a gel-like polish that slathers onto nails and hardens under a special UV lamp. The chip-resistant nail suits potentially last more than two weeks and can be removed easily if clients wish to try new colors or match nails to the raw steak they're currently eating.
As Renaissance's resident nail artist, Lori Gonzales wields thoroughly sanitized equipment to trim nails and dress them up in flattering coats of color. Feet ease into a tub padded with disposable liners as they undergo a toe-coddling pedicure, and fingertips receive similarly luxurious treatment above sea level as Lori deftly swabs nails with eye-grabbing shades of polish. Because she emphasizes safety through sterility, Lori employs mostly single-use tools.
Though she's never met them, licensed aesthetician Linsey Shoop works closely with a team of divers. These divers harvest seaweed from the ocean that's preserved by Repêchage, and used by Linsey during her anti-aging four layer facial treatment. Linsey places the vitamin-enriched seaweed over complexions, and while Linsey keeps an eye out for starfish stowaways, the plant helps to nourish and smooth out the skin.
This seaweed treatment is just one of Linsey's skincare services. She customizes facials to address specific skin conditions such as acne and dryness, and wields a diamond-tip tool to exfoliate skin during microdermabrasions. She can also lengthen lashes with NovaLash extensions, wax away unwanted hair, and impart bronze glows with Sjolie tanning products that are vegan and paraben-free, which means they are free of animal products and crocodile tears.
