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.
Angie Nelson?s father, a college football coach, taught her that ?If you master the fundamentals of your game, you will always have a winning tradition.? Although she didn?t follow her father?s path onto the gridiron, she did use his advice when tackling the world of aesthetics. She opened Angie's Aesthetics to help guests resolve stubborn skin issues. At the skincare boutique, Angie has trained team of aestheticians, and together they create custom treatment plans for complexions. Those plans may include advanced technology, such as crystal-type microdermabrasion, which smoothes fine lines and stimulates collagen growth, or blue LED therapy, which battles acne. They also offer a collection of facials, including the Mix It Up, a facial customizable by concern and skin type, and a vitamin C?infused one, which firms and moisturizes complexions that aren't drinking enough orange juice.
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.
While some people believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, others believe it resides somewhere closer to the edge. Both groups would feel right at home at The Eyelash Connection, where licensed aestheticians divide their time between helping clients enhance their outward appearances and curating a calm, stress-free environment designed to promote wellness from within. Their signature eyelash extensions help trim minutes off of home makeup routines with waterproof strands that are affixed one by one instead of in false-looking strips. Annual continuing-education courses also help the staffers resharpen skills, which they channel into full-body waxing services and personalized skincare facials designed to treat everything from acne-prone complexions to backs covered in scratch 'n' sniff stickers.
From the moment visitors step into the 10,000-square-foot Hibiscus Spa at The Westin Las Vegas, they can feel stress and tension fading away. After checking in at the desk—which seems alive with the growing plants that spill from beneath its transparent countertop—guests can don a comfy robe and sandals before helping themselves to tea and fresh fruit. From there, they can relax by candlelight in a tranquil room filled with a plush couch and armchairs before sauntering toward treatment rooms down a hallway lined with etched-glass panels.
Within one of these 14 rooms, staffers perform treatments including side-by-side couples massages, sugar scrubs beneath the Vichy shower, and salon services. Afterward, guests can enjoy a session in the steam room or sauna.
