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.
Luxe Lash & Brow's Jasmine Pena can make lashes look as bold or as natural as a client desires. She studies faces before applying premium-grade synthetic mink and cruelty-free mink lashes in differing numbers, creating a natural, wide-eyed look or a sultry, red-carpet glamour. She uses medical-grade adhesive to keep lashes in place for up to six weeks, and she replaces extensions that have fallen off due to natural-lash shedding or clients pulling lashes out to obtain wishes. Jasmine can also enhance the eyes with brow treatments.
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.
