To avoid the irritation and fleeting results common among standard skincare services, Aminahs Organic Skin Spa goes back to basics—organic fruits, vegetables, seeds, and herbs provide the basis for every treatment the aestheticians perform. Calling on certifications from Éminence Organic Skincare—a Hungarian line that shuns harsh chemicals and additives—the skin experts customize each facial to suit the client's skin type and target nagging issues such as acne blemishes or signs of aging. They keep tabs on their treatments' effectiveness with before-and-after photos and send clients home with an individualized skincare regimen to follow, ensuring that they'll keep the radiant results for as long as possible. Meanwhile, a host of other services take a gentler approach to beautification: organic microdermabrasion treatments eschew the use of machines, organic peels incorporate no chemicals, and waxing treatments use wholesome, natural waxes to leave skin smooth. Beyond the spa's dedication to saving skin by using formulas free of parabens, pesticides, sodium lauryl sulfate, they also strive to save the planet—all skincare products are created using wind and solar power and packaged in recycled containers.
Graceful Facials and Bodywork's massage therapists and aestheticians pamper guests with a slate of relaxing services. They start all guests off with an initial interview that informs the treatment approach and enables personalization of services. Various massage modalities evict stress and aches from bodies, such as Swedish and hot-stone methods. Oils and lotions facilitate relaxation almost as effectively as removing the cell phone taped to a client's ear. Facials and waxing services are also available.

In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure. Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.
Recently named Las Vegas Review-Journal's 2013 pick for best beauty salon, Pico Madama Beauty & Hair Health Salon emphasizes the importance of healthy, beautiful hair. The experienced hair consultants and stylists don?t settle with a big-picture view of beauty. Using a BeautyScope digital microscope that magnifies the scalp and strands of hair up to 200 times, they diagnose damaged locks, propose styling or treatment plans, and ensure microscopic civilizations aren?t bulldozing their hair forests. From there, stylists may implement hair-health plans including scalp facials with exfoliation that uses botanical products, special brushes, and three massage techniques. They also zoom out from their close-up views to redefine looks with cuts and styles, single- or double-process color treatments. The upscale, Summerlin salon sets clients at ease with a modern design, complimentary coffee, tea, or water, and glass shelves full of exclusive PHYTO hair health products.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
The interior of Blo Salon mirrors the work of its stylists: crisp, modern, and meticulously arranged. With every piece of decor painted a striking white, the stations seem to welcome color and experimentation as a contrast to their minimalist chic. The staffers are happy to deliver—they apply highlights as well as all-over hues with L'Oréal products such as INOA, an ammonia-free permanent color that doesn't irritate sensitive scalps, unlike color that has to be scribbled in with sharp Crayola pencils. The service menu also includes extensions, blowouts, and Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola in addition to careful cuts. As members of a multicultural salon, junior and senior artists alike eagerly fashion new ’dos for all hair types and are experienced in working with African-American hair.
