The phrase “and more” can mean many things. At Spade Skin Care & More, Inc., some might say it refers to the extra mile their staff goes to ensure that guests experience an environment of total relaxation and tranquility. Following an in-depth consultation, clients are treated to flavored water, tea, or coffee before they are led to a private treatment room. There, they can relax and unwind before a skincare specialist arrives to perform a natural and non-invasive treatment such as organic body contouring, organic permanent makeup, or Collagen Production Therapy. Following appointments, guests can recline in the quiet room or retreat to the lounge before venturing out to show off their rejuvenated look to their reflection in a glass bus stop shelter.
