At Delight Beauty and Day Spa, aestheticians strive to give patients a retreat from everyday stressors. They stock the waiting room with complimentary beverages and snacks, and while new clients wait, they fill out a form that helps tailor services to their skin and body issues. The spa's private rooms are as quiet and tranquil as a mouse in a library. Clients lie on crisp linens while aestheticians explain their treatments, from facials targeted to skin type to massages that aim to simply relax, reduce chronic muscle aches, or assuage the discomfort of pregnancy. If they are interested, clients can also have staffers inform them about the latest beauty services, such as eyelash extensions or permanent makeup. The team is so experienced in the latter, they train future techs onsite.
The staff members at Anaya Skin Care have a big job to take on—the body’s biggest, in fact. They tend to its largest organ with facials and body scrubs that cleanse pores and remove dead cells to reveal youthful, soft skin. During waxing services, they unveil even more skin by removing unwanted hair from the root. Spray-tanning services darken complexions for a sun-kissed glow during months when the sun is on vacation in the Oort cloud. Meanwhile, permanent-makeup services enhance facial features by lining eyes, filling in brows, and creating full lips.
Vitality Medical's staff of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners help to reveal shapely figures with weight-loss programs and body-contouring treatments. Specialists listen with an understanding ear as they steer patients onto the proper treatment path, answer questions, and keep tabs on their progress. As the med spa's marquee treatment, the HCG weight-loss program revolves around injections of an all-natural fat-burning solution that seeks to fire up the metabolism, combating unwanted adipose with a combination of vitamins and microscopic trebuchets. Vein therapy, VelaShape body contouring, and laser hair-removal treatments perfect the skin that covered former curves as Botox and FotoFacial treatments forge more youthful complexions.
The eponymous rituals of Salon Rituals seem simple enough. Staff members speak with each client and assesses what defines them, from face shape and skin type to hair texture, sense of style, and dictionary of choice. Then they unleash their font of Aveda-backed knowledge to color hair, perform facials, or teach clients how to apply their own makeup for a flawless style.
