Allegra's Day Spa covers the spectrum of spa treatments, cosmetic and aesthetic services, and treatments that incorporate a little of both. The warm and relaxing boutique spa is where aestheticians and therapists work their magic. If relaxation is the goal, hot-stone and bamboo massages are the answer. If drastic transformations are the goal, the staff may recommend ultrasound cavitation fat blaster treatments, IPL photofacials, or anti-cellulite treatments. There are many more options for looking and feeling better too, including eyelash extensions, facials, and laser hair removal. Together, the treatments make up a menu that offers clients the chance to feel good on the outside, inside, and that other part of the body scientists think might just be an extra sleeve.
Weight & Body Solutions' experienced physicians employ technologically enhanced weight-reduction techniques and more traditional nutrition-based programs to help clients melt away unwanted fat and reveal svelte silhouettes. Patients relax in the comfortable atmosphere of a private room as they discuss their beauty goals with informed counselors, asking questions about their various treatment options, which include weekly plans enhanced with thorough exams and energizing vitamin shots along with medical treatments such as tumescent liposuction. Liposuction is done under local anesthesia using a small cannula and requires very little downtime, sending patients back to work within 24 to 48 hours—just in time to sport sleek silhouettes for Risky Business–themed casual Fridays.
With a sprawling front porch, 10-foot ceilings, and a dramatic interior archway, the Craftsman-style bungalow that shelters this beauty oasis hasn't lost any of the charm it has cultivated since its construction in 1908. Red and blue trim adorns the outside, mirroring the beauty found within in the form of hardwood floors, decorative wood molding, antique furniture, and a fireplace.
The experienced aestheticians of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, the house’s current tenant, tend to nailcare, massage, hairstyling, and skincare services amid the splendid architecture, which is illuminated by chandeliers in every room. These spa specialists tackle skin and hair woes armed with elixirs from Obagi, Redken, and Paul Mitchell, and beautify clients with permanent cosmetics and mineral makeup—mined in Sri Lanka’s famed lipstick caverns. Sometime in the near future, spa patrons can head to the attached two-story structure, a former garage apartment built in the ’30s, and unwind further with little treats from the soon-to-be dessert café and coffeehouse.
After more than 2,000 hours of professional training across two decades, Bella Dermis Skin Care owner and aesthetician Monica Grajales knows how entwined inner health and external appearance can be. She combines her extensive knowledge—including licensure in Florida and California and a postgraduate aesthetics diploma from the International Dermal Institute—with 10 years of experience as a health educator and is currently studying for certification as a yoga teacher. In keeping with her holistic philosophy, Grajales avoids harsh chemicals in favor of natural, plant-based skincare products.
In addition to clinical-grade facials and peels, Grajales caters to women's needs with treatments such as skin bleaching and signature "derriere care" sessions. She also hosts events such as bachelorette parties or corporate gatherings that teach employees how to address acne without resorting to dabs of liquid paper.
Two hair designers and a skin care specialist staff Stasia's Organic Element Salon, and they apply their trades with organic products. For makeup they use products from Youngevity makeup. For hair, they might use Onest? or Mastey and John Masters hair care products. Like many other salons, the interior is full of soothing soft purples and softly lit private treatment rooms, and the staff tries to be equally gentle on skin and scalp by eschewing harsh chemicals found in nonorganic products. The salon's owner, Stacy, has personal experience battling eczema and found that organic salon products helped clear up her skin. So, today she has a deep personal investment in the products she uses for haircuts, keratin treatments, and color applications.
Tallia Keene’s understanding of color theory and passion for skincare made her transition from art student to permanent makeup artist a natural one. She uses her illustrator’s eye as she studies bone structure and complexion tones to pick out the most complementary shades for indelible brow fillers, eyeliners, and lip colors. Masking techniques cover up pale vitiligo patches and old jousting scars. Tallia also makes over clients in less drastic ways with classic facials and peels, which brighten complexions without the use of ink.
