Bare Smooth's laser hair-removal specialists help clients cut ties with razors, tweezers, wax, and the laborious process of burning each hair with a match. During a free consultation, a tech determines each client's specific needs, custom-tailoring their packages before guiding guests through the entire laser hair-removal process. The staff can also improve the appearance of skin with microdermabrasion, facials, and chemical peels.
At Willow Organic Salon, aestheticians pamper skin and hair using eco-conscious products from brands such as Surface and Skin 2 Skin. Experienced staff are on hand to soothe backs with hour-long Swedish massages, rejuvenate faces with invigorating facials, or give strands vibrant new hues through color treatments.
The Elements applies restorative touch to tension-laden muscles and joints, relieving stress and increasing circulation with a variety of massage services. Weary muscles receive gentle kneading and circular movements in the sigh-inducing Swedish massage, and a deep-tissue massage evicts entrenched aches using slower strokes, a strongly worded letter, and forceful pressure from the licensed massage therapist’s fingers and elbows. Heated lava stones bring soothing bliss to lattisimi dorsi, and prenatal massage therapy addresses the pain and swelling accompanying pregnancy. Aromatherapy combines Swedish elements with essential oils but eschews nonessential bugle playing. The Elements also administers medical and sports-related massages to sufferers of chronic pain and athletes, respectively.
Suanne Kimmel uses her extensive training to cleanse and rejuvenate complexions. The former massage therapist and PCA Skin–certified professional uses the medical-grade product line to remove dirt and oil from pores and exfoliate dead skin cells during relaxing skincare services. She customizes each facial, peel, and microdermabrasion treatment to the client's individual needs, which may include aging skin, acne, mild scarring, or sun damage. She also offers aesthetic treatments, such as eyelash extensions and VascuTouch, a treatment that uses radio frequency to remove spider veins and skin tags.
