Each of Imagine You New's skincare specialists brings at least 10 years of experience to the spa's treatment tables. Still, they refuse to rely solely on their own experience when crafting custom treatments for new clients. Every facial or waxing service begins with an informal consultation, during which the aestheticians select products designed for the client's individual skin type or condition. Their collection of such products is extensive; professional DermaQuest formulas exfoliate and cleanse pores during facial treatments, OPI polishes add a glossy sheen to nails, and Jane Iredale mineral makeups imbue cheeks with a radiant glow. Imagine You New's free WiFi gives guests the chance to show off their new look on a social-networking site or research why their body makes a mechanical hissing sound when pressed on during a deep-tissue massage.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
