The team at True Beauty Aesthetics specializes in noninvasive procedures, from laser hair-removal and elos skin-tightening treatments to photofacials and Botox injections. Consultations precede treatments, so clients have a chance to discuss their envisioned results and warn the staff of any allergies to hearing the word “laser.”
Dr. Dan Vasile oversees Skin Envy's roster of aesthetic experts, who restore faces to factory settings with a variety of med-spa services. The LimeLight photofacial begins with a consultation that fields any questions about the procedure, possible effects, and reasons why bad things happen to good faces. The 30-minute photofacial then uses Intense Pulsed Light to raise hyperpigmentation and sun damage to the surface of the skin, where it will eventually flake off naturally. The precisely calibrated beams of light also target age spots and acne scars and render complexions smooth and bright. Skin Envy's technicians try to keep the treatment as comfortable as possible and are available for posttreatment questions and complexion-soothing bedtime stories afterward.
Much of our anxiety stems from the brain, so perhaps it makes sense that its antithesis, relaxation, would begin at the body's other end. The staff of SunShine Foot Massage takes countermeasures against stress by masterfully kneading their clients' soles. They draw their techniques from reflexology principles, which identify pressure points on the foot that correspond to different areas on the physique. Though staff members don't claim that their treatments are medically curative, they stand by the treatments’ calming capabilities—their foot massages can encourage serenity in the face of both mental tension and the common cold.
As its services tame knotted muscles, the venue's surroundings contribute to further tranquility. Depending on the location, patrons might enter through a door of black polished bamboo before reclining in a plush chair, partitioned from others by bamboo dividers. They can complement their massage with a foot soak in a milk-bath mixture, submerging their heels for as long as they'd like, or until they are suddenly stuck in a block of cheese. Private rooms are also available for massages with full-body coverage.
There are no scissors or strands of coloring foil at The Refresh Bar & Spa. Instead, the roar of blow-dryers reigns supreme. That’s because the hairstylists’ only treatment is their signature blowout, which unfolds on posh white hairstyling chairs in the spa’s blowout bar. With regard to other services, the staff similarly places quantity beneath quality on their totem pole of priorities. For instance, licensed aestheticians brush away facial lines during the spa’s sole signature facial, and licensed massage therapists relax guests during the signature massage, which can include Swedish massage kneads, deep-tissue kneads, or both. The spa offers makeup services and has a sauna, ideal for detoxifying lounges or ice cream as short-lived as Danny Glover’s audition to play the elephant in Operation Dumbo Drop.
The stylists, manicurists, and aestheticians at RC Spa & Beauty Center preside over all aspects of their clients’ appearance with a menu of beauty treatments for hair and body. The sounds of snipping shears fill the salon, where stylists update styles with cuts, vibrant colors, and hair extensions. The scrubbing of a nail file or the chatter of an aesthetician consulting with her client sometimes punctuates this soundtrack, but one part of the salon is set apart from this lively bustle. In a quiet room, massage therapists knead away stress with gentle Swedish, warm hot-stone, or firm deep-tissue strokes.
