Once past the quaint brick storefront of Polished Nail Bar & Spa, the spa's receptionist works to make guests comfortable while they await their day of pampering. Amid tiled floors, soft lighting, and sleek white furniture, aestheticians treat fingers and toes like celebrities during indulgent mani-pedis; they also rejuvenate faces with nourishing facial masks and products. A licensed massage therapist kneads stress away through a variety of muscle-melting modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage. The spa also offers romantic services such as couples massages, encouraging duos to bond without having to wear each other's shoes to work.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Sammi Gene Salon and Spa delight patrons with relaxing massages and purifying body wraps. During the 60-minute European body massage, a muscle kneader coaxes tension from backs with dedicated strokes, gentle pressure, and promises of trips to the zoo. Clients who opt for the seaweed wrap can choose between two marine-grass modalities. The re-mineralizing seaweed wrap increases skin's capacity for moisture, imbuing it with a refreshed glow and raising the ire of jealous camels, and the detoxifying seaweed wrap first hydrates skin and then siphons away the absorbed fluid, leaving bodies svelte and clean.
OrTANic Custom Airbrush UltraLounge's team of lash technicians, airbrush artists, and advanced makeup specialists bring 15 years of expertise to help clients look and feel their best.

An offering of eyelash extensions, customized by length, thickness, and curl, is applied by lash artists, and makeup services are available to complement skins glowing with golden hues.
As Associate Director of D'vine Medical Spa, Dr. Shady Macaron oversees a wide range of beauty services. Laser treatments zap unwanted body hair and wrinkles, while cosmetic injections plump up facial contours or debilitate scowl muscles. The nutritionist on staff guides dieters with medical weight-loss programs and the team of makeup artist flatters features with Eve Pearl blushes, powders, and shadows.
Chairs aplenty host guests during manicures, pedicures, and chair massages inside Noella Spa & Nails. Rows of cozy seating face a mounted TV in the manicure section, and the salon's big enough to host birthday and bachelorette parties. Technicians apply lemon sugar scrub to hands and cover nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac or OPI, Essie, or Gelish polish. Staffers also wax off unwanted leg and eyebrow hairs and saturate the skin with vitamin C during anti-aging facials, using Dermalogica skincare products instead of just dumping a carton of OJ on faces.
