A quick glance at Alexandra Bradley's curriculum vitae reveals an unstoppable passion for skincare: she has a master's degree in physical therapy with a specialty in medical aesthetics; she graduated with honors from the Ogle School; and she is certified by the state of Texas. In addition, as a native Brazilian, she transformed appearances by running a beauty center in her hometown of Belo Horizonte.

She also uses advanced technologies during a collection of peels, which can deploy lasers to resurface the skin.
The crunch of salt under foot. Soothing strains of spa music. The taste of salt on the lips. These sensations enrapture visitors to Salt Escape's halo-therapy chambers. Claiming accolades from CBS DFW and NBC DFW, experts have designed sterilized chambers to mimic the conditions of ancient salt caves once thought to grant healing properties. Between walls, floors, and ceilings coated in a layer of negative-ionized natural rock salt, Salt Escape works to create a spa environment filled with toys, café tables, and a stereo system to soothe adults and children more effectively than a night-light covered in honey. Halo-generators fill the air with controlled bursts of crushed salt, which generates a microclimate and assuages respiratory and skin conditions. To facilitate comfortable treatment sessions, staff members beckon visitors to recline in zero-gravity chairs, which cradle spines to neutralize the effects of gravity and recent rugby tournaments.
Destiny Day Spa keeps its sole focus on the body's largest organ: the epidermis. From waxing and chemical peels to foot scrubs and back facials, the aestheticians put their near-decade of experience to work during skincare treatments that draw on high-quality products, many of which are clinical-grade, natural, or paraben-free. Though they specialize in anti-aging treatments such as microdermabrasion and light-based microphototherapy skin tightening, they tailor acne facials to teens and have treated men's skincare issues as well, such as dry skin and irritation from razors that won't stop complaining about their lousy draft picks in fantasy football.
The Spa at Pure Salon is powered by the certified skills of massage therapist Nikki Sanders and aesthetician Rachel Sauls. After earning their stripes working at high-end spas throughout the Raleigh area, the duo settled down and opened its own luxury oasis.

Rachel's multifaceted knowledge of skincare has led her to discover and employ upscale Osmosis skincare products, which enhance facial treatments with DNA repair technology. The pair conspires to reward its most loyal clients, granting discounts to regular customers or to those who guess the correct number of freckles that have visited the spa over the years.
Each flower in the bouquet of services is tailored to fit individual needs and skin types. The comprehensive revivification begins with a half-hour basic facial (a $60 value) to clear pores of Silly Putty, sparking a warm glow. Next, digit caps receive some TLC with a one-hour spa manicure (a $35 value), with "No Scrubs" playing in the background. Once fingertips are in check, hair tips will be cut, shampooed, and styled to meet personal preferences (a $50 value). Laser hair removal is available for curious cats and scheming supervillains—you get one session in one area such as the underarms, brow, upper lip, chin, cheek, or sideburns ($150–$200 value). If lasers aren't your bag of Fritos, opt for the hydrafacial microdermabrasion instead, which hydrates as it exfoliates to deeply clean the skin of dead skin cells and impurities.
