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.

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.
Inside the airy interior of Rio Spa & Salon, worries diminish under the influence of relaxing massages, facials, and salon treatments. Leading the charge against stress, the spa?s team of massage therapists eases minds and muscles with several modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, reflexology, and Thai yoga massage. Each treatment comes with a custom scented lotion in tropical fragrances such as pomegranate, a?ai berry, and jungle undergrowth. Aestheticians call on organic ingredients, including sugar, fruit, and mud, when performing custom facials and body scrubs. At the salon end, nail treatments such as the Kentucky Bourbon gentlemen?s pedicure fuse primping and pampering, and hair-coloring services and perms come with a complimentary paraffin treatment. The community-friendly salon participates in Locks of Love, offering freebies, discounts, and beatific nods to those who shear their strands for a cause.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans.

With more than 25 years experience under their belt, the staff at Classylash & Spa Services is showing no signs of slowing down. The staff still performs lash and skin services seven days a week, and the processes are as intricate as ever. Using a medical-grade adhesive, technicians adhere synthetic mink to each individual lash, creating longer, fuller lashes that make it easier to flirt or deflect pennies falling from skyscrapers. Other services also benefit from small touches: Staffers can add a pumpkin-based peel rich in glycolic and lactic acids to make the radiant facial more effective or hot stones to a massage, causing aches to melt. The spa even features practitioners of ashiatsu oriental bar therapy, in which massage therapists use their bare feet to knead out tension and open cranberry-sauce containers without a can opener.
