For more than a quarter of a century, Sirrell has performed custom beauty and relaxation treatments using the most up-to-date techniques. She analyzes each client’s unique skin type before prescribing ideal products, which may come from high-end brands such as Jan Marini, Le Meiux, and Jane Iredale mineral makeup. The spa also invites guests to indulge in full-body waxing, detox slimming tummy wraps, make-up applications, and spray tans, all enhanced by soothing music and an air-filtration system that turns oxygen into giggle gas.
Registered nurse Vala DiCarlo draws on more than 15 years experience in the medical field to enhance skin’s health and aesthetic appeal. This clinical background makes her particular about the products she chooses to integrate into her custom facial treatments. Using professional-grade solutions from 302 Professional Skincare and Le Mieux, she erases built-up years with treatments including ultrasonic facials that deliver anti-aging serums deep into the skin’s inner layers. She also treats acne with infusions of green tea, chamomile, and sulfur, or reduces hyperpigmentation with the rejuvenation facial’s glycolic exfoliation. She doesn’t leave sensitive skin to fend for itself, but instead soothes it with a specially calibrated facial that includes exfoliating spray and all-natural, fragrance-free products.

More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
Green, leafy plants and a cross-legged Buddha statue populate the tranquil foyer of PerSauna, an urban retreat that promotes relaxation and wellness exclusively through infrared-sauna sessions. The space has two types of saunas, both housed in private suites outfitted with flat screens and sound systems. The first type of sauna, made of cedar wood, has antibacterial and antifungal powers, but also bears the aromatic scent of the wood. Those sensitive to odors may prefer the hypoallergenic basswood saunas.
Once bodies are inside the rustic saunas, far-infrared energy begins elevating internal temperatures and promoting a slew of potential benefits. In the comfortable heat, muscles relax and minds sharpen as a healthy sweat pulls toxins, sodium, alcohol, and boy-band lyrics from the body. After typical 40-minute sessions, clients may rehydrate with a glass of fruit-flavored water.
