Kris Proykov of Exotica Skin Care performs a variety of skincare services ranging from facials to chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. In addition to offering waxing and body scrubs, Proykov also features Bio Jouvance International products in her store.
"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me." That's because Adam, who has worked in the extension business for more than six years, works with exclusive suppliers to bring in 100% human hair. He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions?clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10?12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression?clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
Grand Vacations Spa presents guests with two routes to restfulness: technology or tradition. The first choice takes them on the Essentials Journey, a compendium of services that relies on advanced formulas to cleanse, exfoliate, and renew the skin. Extras such as acid peels and microcurrent treatments—electrical energy meant to lift and firm complexions—complement the menu's body wraps and exfoliating facials. The Escape Journey blends the renewing properties of organic ingredients with relaxing rituals, resulting in sessions of meditation massage and nourishing scrubs.
These journeys are signatures of the Hilton eforea spas. Though the spas pamper guests in several lavish hotels throughout the world, each eforea location treats clients to customizable options and distinct decor.
Grand Vacations Spa welcomes visitors to six private rooms, wet-steam chambers, and a cream-colored relaxation lounge. Nestled in plush, provided robes, patrons can browse a catalog of Kerstin Florian products, whose european serums incorporate natural algae, mud, and herbs. Aromatherapy imbues the space with enticing scents, though its source is hard to pinpoint—the staff layers fragrances into several services, including aroma manicures, which perfume hands more effectively than a stack of corsages.
Hibiscus Day Spa?s body-treatment menu looks good enough to eat: the pumpkin body souffl? softens skin with enzymes, and the Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence tantalizes the senses with a cocoa scrub and chocolate-butter massage. Though not as epicurean, Hibiscus?s other spa treatments are similarly luxuriant. The dual massage recruits two therapists to work on a client?s muscular tension, and a Caribbean Queen facial slathers skin with an aromatic blend of peptides and hydrators. Specialty treatments for expectant mothers and brides-to-be fill out the selection, as well as teen services; mini facials help instill healthy skincare habits and massages tackle high-school sports injuries and tension from hanging on a flagpole by your underwear.
For maintenance less aesthetic and more energetic, Hibiscus also boasts an onsite health and wellness center. Here, clients can look to traditional Chinese healing therapies such as sliding-scale acupuncture and reiki energy balancing. Custom nutritional counseling helps participants embrace long-term healthful eating habits.
As the head of the Allure Cosmetic Laser team, Dr. Leo Capobianco uses his extensive experience as a physician and trainer of other doctors to care for bodies with both surgical and nonsurgical beauty services. Dr. Capobianco specializes in Tickle Lipo, a revolutionary means of liposuction that targets fat with microscopic feather dusters, liquefying it for easy extraction. He also is well-trained in weight loss programs, including HCG and weight-loss medication, and is currently training other doctors on the use of bio-identical hormones to keep the body and mind refreshed.

Dr. Capobianco also wields advanced laser technology to perform laser hair removal, acne treatments, and skin rejuvenation. Injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and Radiesse can keep skin looking as youthful as a toddler's driver?s license photo.
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.
