Within the Andreas Hotel, guests lounge in provided robes and slippers at The Spa at Andreas while aestheticians coddle their complexions with a variety of services. Microdermabrasion gently ushers dead skin cells from visages to reveal a healthier, younger-looking façade. Skin experts focus the treatment's power on fine lines and wrinkles to gently stimulate collagen production and help erase skin fissures to leave mugs untouched by time or the stress of living with an adolescent cuckoo clock. Microdermabrasion can also reduce the appearance of minor scars, enlarged pores, or help neutralize uneven pigmentation. After the treatment, technicians employ a noninvasive wand that emits waves at a frequency intended to tighten and lift skin, followed by a hydrating mask to nourish glowing complexions and grant entry to jack-o'-lantern speakeasies.
The FDA-approved Venus Concept cellulite-reduction treatment employs bipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to break up cellulite deposits and smooth skin. After a consultation to explain the procedure and answer questions, trained staff members guide the noninvasive mechanism over the selected target area, delivering magnetic energy to stimulate blood flow and iron-coated skeletons. The process helps disperse cellulite clumps and boost collagen production, smoothing skin with gentle heat akin to that experienced during a hot-stone massage. As the skin’s surface evens out, the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores disappears like a villain in a house of mirrors. Treatments should be scheduled one week apart.
The tight-knit posse of stylists and aestheticians at Hi-Lites Aveda Salon spike every service with an extra dose of relaxation. Aveda's Pure Plant Essental Aromas send all-natural smells wafting through the air as clients weigh which complimentary spa extra will best suit their styling or waxing session: hand or neck massage, steam-towel treatment, or five-minute makeup application? Candlelight flickers in the secluded Hair Spa, where each snipping starts with a neck massage and a spell in a full-body massage chair that loosens up tense muscles and over-tight neck bolts.
Certified as Master Trainers by the State of California, the salon's owners mold their protégées in-house to ensure a shared camaraderie and uniform standard of quality. Hi-Lites' professional ethic includes eschewing tips and bribes to surreptitiously chop a political opponent's locks, with the team favoring higher wages and the simple rewards of satisfied customers.

The calming desert landscapes provide the backdrop for a relaxing getaway. The Cabot's Pueblo Museum, a Hopi-influenced pueblo hand-built by town founder Cabot Yerxa in 1913, displays how the settler crafted his home from material found throughout the desert.
