From the street, Spa Sass? is barely distinguishable from the other little black awnings and narrow storefronts. But step inside, and the narrow storefront opens up into a 5,000-square-foot refuge from the downtown bustle.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early for their appointment, giving them ample time to slip into fluffy robes and slippers and sip complimentary juice or tea before being ushered into a private treatment room. Here, aestheticians strive to ensure a soothing experience by treating skin with the utmost delicacy. They nourish it with natural ingredients such as honey, cacao, and Dead Sea salts, and, during laser hair removal, they wield the SoftLight laser, whose beams are gentle enough to zap hair from faces without damaging pores.
Professional aesthetician Ruth Watne polishes and perfects visages with customized facials. The approximately one-hour Lactic Plus facial peel begins with a thorough skin cleansing, removing dirt, excess oils, and past-date vinegars from the top dermal layer. A subsequent deep organic lactic peel, containing pumpkin and pomegranate enzymes and customized to the exfoliation level desired, scrubs away dead skin-cells to uncover underlying radiant skin. Finally, a calming mask smoothes over countenances, hydrating skin and soothing pores with its calming ingredients and encyclopedic knowledge of classic German lullabies. A hand-and-arm massage completes the experience, sending clients forth from the cozy spa interior relaxed and with brighter, more even-toned skin.
Every appointment at Neo Pinot Spa is designed to give clients an escape from the worries of everyday life. After enjoying a complimentary drink of spring water, herbal tea, or gourmet coffee in the waiting area, world-weary folks can truly relax as the nail technicians and aestheticians go pamper mad. The spa?s signature mani-pedis leave nails trim and refined, incorporating everything from salt scrubs and sea clay masks to warm herbal towel treatments, creating an indulgent spa experience. Additionally, the staff performs classic facials, foot massages and reflexology sessions, and waxing treatments that use hard or soft waxes and withering glares to get rid of unwanted stubble.

It?s hard to believe Good Karma Salon & Retreat is staffed by only six people when considering the number of available services: hairstyling, nailcare, skincare, massages, body treatments, and waxing are all part of the collective repertoire. Within the soothing, earth-toned studio?with nature-inspired accents such as potted bamboo and green accent walls?the staff also specializes in applying makeup and accentuating the eyes via an eyelash tint, faux lashes, or faux lashes made out of fluorescent bulbs. During treatments, the staff relies on botanical products from Aveda and hair products from Pureology.
