Beautify Day Spa's skilled skin technicians evict unwanted hair from the body's nether regions during 30-minute Brazilian wax services. Spa professionals apply hot wax to bikini areas before sloughing off precise amounts of unwanted stubble in the opposite direction of hair's roots. Therapists take their time and thoroughly check the skin to seek excess hairs and spontaneously appearing tattoos. Clients relax in the spa's warm-coloured interiors, pairing hands with complimentary cups of tea or coffee.
Medical procedures and spa treatments share a home at Allure Skin and Laser Clinic, where medical aestheticians reinvigorate skin with facial peels, laser hair removal, permanent makeup, and other treatments that blur the line between the laboratory and the day spa. Though their specialties vary, the staff members share a common philosophy: treat each guest as an individual who deserves to be pampered.
This philosophy pervades every aspect of the spa, from the smile and steamy cup of herbal tea that await guests upon their arrival to the treatments themselves—each of which begins with a personal consultation and a customized skin analysis. The aestheticians often call upon advanced implements such as a special skin scanner to determine which treatments to deploy. Their considerable skills also allow the team to camouflage scars, whiten teeth, and obliterate rebellious planets with their laser devices.
The stylists at Alleyne's Grooming For Men employ old-fashioned barbering techniques to give clients the aesthetics of a modern gentleman. The vintage interior includes traditional leather and chrome chairs, which cradle visitors during their session (see building tour here). Using massage oils, hot shaving lather and heated-towel compresses, techs polish men's faces and sculpt hairstyles more masculine than Thor’s racecar collection. The staff specializes in helping men appear elegantly at important events, such as weddings and job interviews.
At Mar Skin Care Laser Clinic, muscles unwind, leaving minds to meander during soothing treatments that range from facials to pedicures. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During the effleurage portion of the massage, the hands smoothly circle the skin like epidermal ice skates as a primer for renewed venous and lymphatic circulation. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points, and friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of clients' muscle fibres. Then, the vibration stroke shimmies down the back and the limbs to get blood and muscles moving. Finally, the lesser-known high-five move at the end of the Swedish massage generates camaraderie and enough electricity to power the clinic's lights for a week.
The staff at A Touch of Paradise Esthetics boast expertise that covers nearly every square inch of the body, and they perform services with the singular aim of making guests look and feel their best. Starting at the toes, pedicures doll up feet for trips to the beach, and waxing and laser hair removal rid the entire body of unwanted bristle. More than 10 types of facials bring out each client's inner glow, and more powerful treatments such as microdermabrasion are brought in to deal with deep wrinkles and frown lines. The staff also work to maintain a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, which is why clients are asked to turn off their phones and leave extra-crinkly potato-chip bags in the car.
The professional beautifiers at Bassett Spa blend therapeutic-grade essential oils and plant-based biodegradable ingredients directly on-site to slather on skin during spa services. The organic products, applied during peels and facials, help hydrate skin and gently remove the remnants of failed gum bubbles, and vibrant polish glistens atop fingers and toes as they emerge from mani-pedis. The body artisans can also whisk away unwanted hair or apply permanent makeup.
