While traveling to India, Marina Gachet experienced the most wonderful facial?what was called a prayer facial?and ended up staying in India to study with the people who had mastered the technique. That experience laid the foundation for her aesthetics approach: Marina has now traveled the world and spent thousands of hours honing her techniques in both skincare and massage therapy to give her clients a unique and soothing experience. At her studio, she impresses the importance of de-stressing to all her clients and offers a plethora of massage styles to help them do so. She also offers packages that pair foot massage and facials with warm tea?for sipping, not as part of the massage.
Customized hydrating masks. Plant-derived stem cells. Enzymatic botanicals. These are just a few of the skin-nourishing ingredients that are incorporated into Beauty by Krista's facials.?Here, Krista tailors each of her treatments to the client's skin type and unique concerns, and she often includes d?collet?, shoulder, and arm massages that make each experience as relaxing as it is nourishing. But the personalized attention Krista pours into her facials also extends to her other beautifying services, which include peels, makeup applications, waxing, and botanically-based body wraps that improve skin health and help contour the body so that it can fit back into an old dress or designer sleeping bag.
At Sucre Sugar Shack, Esthetician Brooke Schroth removes body hair via sugaring, covering stubbly areas in a room-temperature sugar paste instead of the usual hot wax. With a flick-like technique, she then removes hair in the same direction it grows, a process that minimizes pain and ingrown hairs. It's versatile, too, working just as well for eyebrow maintenance, Brazilians, and backs.
The staff at Dermal Essentials' three locations takes skin seriously. With backgrounds and certifications in aesthetics and makeup artistry, they know how to cleanse skin and enhance appearances whether they are performing microdermabrasions, organic peptide peels, or makeup applications. During treatments, they use high-quality products from Image Skincare, a chemical-free, pharmaceutical-grade skincare line, and Follique, which calms skin after waxing, shaving, or a stern talking-to in the mirror.
Select from shelves of Dr. John Conte's Simple Radiance sunscreen, moisturizer, or antioxidant serum, which keep skin glowing with health and free of loathsome oxygen. 4-Shade or Z-Shade sunscreens block the sun's painful rays with a vitamin-packed oil-free formula that also restores vitamin E to faces.
At EZ Eyebrow, the gentle arch of a freshly groomed brow is as natural as the hair-removal technique that creates it. Threading first sprang up in ancient Egypt and India, and as opposed to modern waxing, which can damage skin or create a worldwide candle shortage, threading specifically targets hair. It sweeps up a tuft at a time, carving eyebrows into natural arches with precision. In fact, its accuracy rivals that of tweezing—and in less time, since hairs are pulled out in bunches, not one by one. Plus, threading services can also eradicate hair from other parts of the face and neck.
