A cream-colored spa accented by green sprouts, marble, and stone sets the stage for relaxation at Aqua Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa, where skilled aestheticians bolster beauty with services for the skin, hair, and nails. Wrinkles and furrows fade into oblivion as the staff tightens skin with Lumière LED facials and turns back the clock on sun damage with the lightening peel’s cocktail of lactic acid and brightening serums. Kneeling at the foot of 1 of 17 plush pedicure chairs, a technician culls overgrowing nails, curbs wayward cuticles, and ousts spent skin with a sea-salt scrub, promoting relaxation and the joyful urge to commute via kickline. Among the salon’s other services, airbrush tanning bronzes bodies without UV exposure and gentle head-to-toe waxing treatments strip away hair with warm wax.

Aesthetician Kelly Carlson approaches skincare and brow shaping with the meticulous detail of a Swiss watchmaker––a fact suggested by her company's gear-inspired logo. Before every facial, a complete face mapping enables Kelly to identify what makes each client’s complexion tick, and during 20-minute MicroZone treatments she tinkers over specific issues such as blackheads or tired eyes, and repairs broken-out faces in no time at all. Her custom brow shapings utilize a three-point, five-line method that sculpts fringe in line with the natural contours of the face and favors fullness over the skinny, over-waxed brows worn by most modern day silent film stars.
Since graduating with honors from The Aveda Institute, Kelly has gone on to acquire an Expert certification from The International Dermal Institute. She invests her skills in products with potent ingredients and noninvasive technology, including Clarisonic brushes that break up deeply imbedded grime with gentle ultrasonic frequencies.
Ten years. That's the bare minimum of skincare experience upon which Urban Retreat's skin therapists draw. With a deep knowledge of various skin types, the skin therapists perform custom facials and chemical peels using natural organic products by brands such as ?minence and Obagi. For other treatments, they utilize advanced technologies?during the biorejuvenation facelift, for example, they improve skin tone and texture using specialized wands that conduct microcurrents. Patrons may also opt for skin-smoothing waxing sessions or eyelash extensions, which elongate individual eyelashes with fluttery mink filaments, matching the natural curl of a perfect eyelash or an imperfect yardstick to maintain an authentic look. While waiting for these pampering services, clients can relax on plush ivory furniture, which lends an air of natural elegance to the spa's interior. Urban Retreat is located in Saint Louis Park at Excelsior and Grand. They also offer Botox filler and laser treatments.
Barbara Johnson of Finale' Hair Removal and Facial Rejuvenation admits that there?s no way to completely stop the process of aging, but she?s dedicated herself to slowing down the visible effects as much as possible. She offers photo rejuvenation and broadband light to minimize the sun damage that results in fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation as well as laser resurfacing to penetrate deeper into the skin to activate collagen production. She also whisks away unwanted hair with electrolysis and laser hair removal.
