Clique Waxing Boutique focuses almost exclusively on body waxing. The boutique's aestheticians perform several hundred Brazilian waxes each week—some completed in as little as 15 minutes—with either traditional strip wax or sensitive hard wax. For especially delicate areas, a dollop of Relax & Wax No Scream Cream dulls pain sensors and subdues hairs before they weave themselves into an organized protest. New clients are encouraged to review Clique's waxing etiquette.
On faces, the boutique's crew uproots fringe via traditional Indian threading techniques or the Anastasia brow-shaping system from Los Angeles, which includes a series of measurements that help technicians taper brows to the most face-flattering shapes, such as circles or lightning bolts.
The studio's Bohemian-style décor—with vintage furnishings, framed art, a chandelier, and ornately framed mirrors—carries over into a retail space, where guests can peruse products including paraben-free makeup and lavender-mint Dead Sea–salt scrubs from gloMinerals.
Lasers can be used to solve virtually any problem at Ultimate Vein Care. Specifically, the technicians—under the guidance of board-certified vascular surgeons—enlist three different cosmetic laser systems that provide them with the flexibility to treat various skincare conditions using minimally invasive means. By bombarding the skin with specific wavelengths of laser light energy, the technicians are able to rid clients' bodies of unsightly stubble or spider veins, and they can also improve the skin's overall tone and texture by minimizing the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. The versatility of the laser systems allows the staff to more effectively treat clients with a range of skin types. However, lasers aren't the center's only recourse for dealing with varicose or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is also an option, sealing off blood vessels with the help of very fine injections instead of microscopic strands of caution tape.
The long strokes of a therapeutic massage. A diamond-tipped wand that sloughs off depleted skin cells. Carefully targeted cosmetic injections that help ease the signs of aging. Often a person seeking all of these services would have to visit a chiropractor, salon, and med spa to achieve their goals, but the team of medical professionals and aestheticians at Splendid Skin Medspa cater to a wide range of needs in one relaxing, spa-like destination. A fleet of high-powered lasers penetrate the skin to rejuvenate faces, ease or eliminate hair growth, and destroy strip-mines hidden beneath the toenails, and massage services and B12 injections help to increase energy and health.
Owner and aesthetician Tina Sinopoli combines 10 years of skincare expertise and four years of health-and-wellness coaching into every personalized spa procedure performed at Body Beautique. Appointments begin with a detailed consultation, during which Tina evaluates the patient’s epidermal condition and needs before administering the most appropriate skin or body treatment using Previse skincare products. Such services include 30-minute resurfacing peels, wherein alpha hydroxy acid aims to improve fine lines and scarring; and 30-minute enzyme peels, a fruit-based exfoliation treatment that smoothes skin more effectively than rubbing up against a fruit-bowl still life painted on sandpaper. Waxing sessions also soften skin by ridding bodies of unwanted hair.
Along with enriching skin, Tina draws upon her studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to offer clients health-coaching services. By investigating each client’s relationship with food and exercise, Tina is able to determine the promptest, healthiest way to achieve and maintain their ideal weight. She also attempts to help them understand and reduce their cravings, and incorporate new, healthier foods into their diets.
Though it’s not uncommon to hear the staff at Focus Salon belting out Celine Dion songs throughout the day, their true talent doesn't lie in their vocal cords. Grabbing bottles of Paul Mitchell products from their stations, the gifted stylists expertly cut, color, and repair strands, transforming drab 'dos into chic and becoming styles. They weave permanent and nondamaging DreamCatchers hair extensions into short or thinning coifs, allowing clients to perm, color, and yank their new length without fear of harm.
Amid earth-toned walls and posters of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, the stylists at Persona Hair Salon and Spa concentrate on gussying up their clients and carving out an oasis of relaxation. Haircuts, coloring treatments, and mani-pedis give customers a fresh look, and relaxation blossoms inside private massage rooms. There, therapists conduct Swedish and sports massages, soothing aches and working out tension. Persona tops off its services with reiki treatments, facials, and waxing services.
