At Miss Faces Skin Care, the custom ingredients of a pore-cleansing European facial are unique to each recipient––however, the resulting feel-good sensations aren’t. That's because the spa whips up fresh batches of melt-in-your-chair relaxation with every visit. Teresa DiPaolo, a licensed esthetician in the Parker area for more than 15 years, uses a gentle wax imported from France to remove unwanted hair, and boosts outer allure with head-to-toe treatments such as exfoliating body polishes. Most of all, though, Teresa magnifies clients’ natural beauty with an array of facial treatments, which help erase wear and tear caused by aging, the weather, and volunteering as an assistant for William Tell impersonators.
Upon entering Shear Bella Salon and Spa, clients are met with clean, minimalist décor and a complimentary glass of wine or cup of coffee. After settling in, they are then greeted by owner Nichole Wiese and her team of hair designers and aestheticians, who collectively transform and pamper clients with body and hair services. Skin services cater to both men and women with six different kinds of cleansing facials and peels. Waxing treatments keep hairs from spreading too thick across arms, lips, brows, bikini zones, and defunct Wooly Willy games, and soothing massage-therapy sessions curb tension with hot-stone and aromatherapy techniques. Each service culminates in a complimentary makeup touchup.
During custom airbrush-tanning sessions, a quick first-visit consultation outlines guests' needs before Lifetime Tans' body bronzers spray a natural-looking glow onto epidermal canvases. Trained technicians armed with a handheld tanning system mist anatomies with even coats of custom bronzing potions to deepen the hue of paled complexions. For an additional fee, guests can bedazzle skin with an optional gold-leaf shimmer for a golden-brown finish that shines as brilliantly as a bonfire fueled by encyclopedias for up to three days.
A self-contained air-conditioning unit, extra large lounge, and canopy speakers are not the amenities of some luxury sailboat or private-beach cabana—they are just a few of the features found in Tanning Oasis's high-tech UV tanning beds. From the Silver Bullet with its extra facial lamps to the Montego Bay Viper with its wrap-around lights and teleportation option, the beds here are some of the most advanced in the bronzing biz. For those who prefer a different tanning option, the MagicTan spray-tan booth spritzes on an even glow in under 60 seconds that lasts up to a week.
From their home within Phoenix Salon Suites, the aestheticians of Sunny Day Spa brighten and clear complexions with Image and Sanitas skincare products. Whether reeling from acne or frustrated by wrinkles, skin finds a form of relief best suited to its needs. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments help minimize the appearance of facial imperfections such as age spots, fine lines, sun damage, and blemishes, while anti-aging facials use microcurrent technology to help lift and tone sagging facial muscles. Once complexions are back to their radiant selves, the spa's aestheticians can fine tune features by waxing brows or by tinting lashes to complement skin tone or match a new pair of lime-green contact lenses.
For the past 31 years, Tan Your Hide's proprietors have witnessed every innovation in UV and sunless tanning, selecting the best and most current technologies to outfit nine locations. European Ergoline UV tanning beds darken skin tones at seven levels of intensity that mimic seven different tropical vacations. Tan Your Hide's representatives replace each bed's bulbs a minimum of four times per year, maintaining their capacity for perfecting pigmentation. Heated Mystic HD tanning booths spritz physiques with an even coat of healthy color. Customers can also purchase commercial-grade tanning beds for use at home. Tan Your Hide's interest in skin perfection doesn't end with coloration—its UV-free Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth stimulates production of collagen, elastin, and internal spandex, improving the condition of skin all over the body. The device's floor vibrates to tighten connective tissues and thereby reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The warm embrace of the sun's rays is only available during daylight hours—a weakness in the competition that the savvy owners of Touch-N-Tan 24/7 have already begun to exploit. Open around the clock, the salon bronzes bodies with UV tanning beds calibrated to three different intensities. For a UV-free alternative, guests can enter the Pura spray-tan booth, where a mist of bronzing solution coats bodies in a natural-looking, streak-free tan.
