A licensed aesthetician and cosmetology-school graduate, Stacey Witt is well-versed in the importance of skincare as it relates to beauty. She applies sunscreen at the conclusion of facials to ward off harmful UV rays, and she wields products that work with a variety of skin types to unclog pores and brighten complexions. Witt approaches each of her treatments with attentiveness, whether she is performing an enzyme peel, a lip treatment, or a makeup application for paparazzi-heavy treks to take out the garbage.
Beauty and relaxation are both top priorities at Purity Day Spa, where the staff pamper guests with spa services ranging from soothing massage and aromatherapy to diamond-peel microdermabrasion and bridal makeup. A variety of massage modalities, including hot stone and shiatsu, cater to muscle needs after one too many bathroom-mirror flexing sessions. Alternatively, skincare treatments such as extractions and collagen anti-aging facials leave skin glowing and healthy.
In the midst of ornate chandeliers, chocolate-colored drapery, and a spa lounge boasting complimentary drinks, Divine Skin & Body Care's team performs spa treatments just as sophisticated as the decor. Skincare specialists rely on such well-known products as glominerals, Image Skin Care, and Jan Marini as they create custom facials and chemical peels. More technologically advanced skincare treatments include Luminox Light Therapy, which depends on LED lights to combat wrinkles and blemishes, and the Intraceuticals 02 treatment––a favorite among celebrities and their less-famous shadows––which uses hyperbaric oxygen technology to tighten, lift, and plump the face.
Divine Skin & Body Care also staffs a personal trainer and a weight-loss specialist, both of whom help clients to pinch inches and commit to a healthier lifestyle. The resident reiki master promotes physical and emotional well-being with Japanese reiki sessions personalized with strokes that address the clients' most urgent areas and a rendition of "Danny Boy" that replaces "Danny boy" with the client's name and gender.
Holding titles such as licensed aesthetician and physician's assistant, the team at Skin Perfection brings years of training and expertise to their complexion-refining treatments. As experts, they have mastered a wide range of methods for restoring youthful appearances, from the microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels that remove dull skin to the dermal fillers and injectable cheesecakes that plump up facial creases. Clinic owner Yvonne Hogue knows her way around such medical-grade products as Obagi, Skinceuticals, and Prevage MD, and her colleague and protégé Gilda Simonian builds her own repertoire of services under Hogue’s supervision.
The staff at Redwood MedSpa wield cutting-edge technology to help clients achieve their beauty goals without invasive surgery, relying on lasers, injectables, and professional-grade skincare products. Botox, Dysport, and Dermal Fillers fill deep wrinkles and de-emphasize fine lines to combat the appearance of aging, while laser treatments treat everything from facial acne to veins that look eerily similar to major highways on an Idaho roadmap. Patients can continue the beautifying process at home by picking up products such as Revision, Topix serums, and Obagi skincare products.
The skincare specialists at A. Major Delight Day Spa practice what they call "the art of relaxation," and faces are the primary beneficiaries. European facials, customized to each client's skin type and needs, help to rejuvenate cheeks, while antioxidant facials call on the delicious elements in pomegranate and goji berries to remove impurities. In addition to skin treatments, the spa offers waxing sessions to remove unwanted fuzz and paraffin and sea salt to pamper hands and feet.
