As a full-body perfecting school, Skinworks and its aesthetic armada of students clear smooth, silky paths with a selection of waxing services. Improve Chunnel swim times with a full-leg ($35 for 60 minutes), arm ($15 for 30 minutes), or back ($30 for 60 minutes) wax, or de-fuzz smaller bodily tunnels, such as noses and ears ($7). Lips, chins, and navels bid strands adieu in one fell yank ($7), and bikinis suit up for competition with a 30-minute procedure ($15).
Manicures and pedicures serve as routine maintenance for busy limb endings by trimming nails and pushing cuticles as well as softening and polishing. The mani-pedi treatments eliminate unsightly issues such as nail chipping, ragged cuticles, and callused skin. The manicure includes nail buffing and polish, leaving nails smooth and shiny (an $18 value), and the one-hour Spa Club pedicure soothes the tougher calluses that result from being walked on all day (a $38 value), leaving your feet smoothed, exfoliated, and nail-shiningly refreshed. Today's deal also includes a yearlong membership ($25), which locks in discount rates at all three locations of The Spa Club for the duration of one 67,000-mph trip around a gigantic, flaming plasma orb.
Anyone who's completed four full Ironman triathlons must know a thing or two about staying in shape. Add to that the fact that Dr. Brent Larsen is board certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and has studied the field since 2010, and it's clear why people trust his clinic to provide weight-loss and aesthetic services at SLC Med Spa. The clinic's weight-loss methods are based on scientific testing of the client's metabolism and body composition, a practice that allows the staff of certified personal trainers to draw up meal plans and recommend supplements with greater accuracy than if they were basing their advice on a horoscope stained with meat sauce. On occasion, CoolSculpting provides a machine-assisted boost by crystallizing fat cells with targeted cooling. Peels and injectables such as Botox and Dysport put the finishing touches on complexions as they smooth away blemishes and iron out wrinkles.
Although clients are often there for their own good, the center doesn't feel like somewhere you'd visit as a chore. As guests await their treatments, they watch a flat-screen TV in a waiting room replete with leather furniture, earthen tones, and wood-paneled walls that reflect handsomely off the burnished tile floor.
As a child, Erin Kump's favorite toy was the portable foot spa she used when giving her family members pedicures. Her favorite treats were the mud masks her mother would bring home for her from the drugstore. This interest in beauty blossomed into a career, and she became an aesthetician full time.
From their nook in Salon Rain & Day Spa, awash in soothing earth tones, Erin and her staff help work toward clients' aesthetic goals with a full roster of body treatments. Shelves brim with products from Image and HydroPeptide, which can be calibrated to help clear up acne, refresh lax skin, and empower patrons to fight signs of aging without drinking from fountains that conquistadors put their mouths all over. Beneath a sign reading “In the depths of the soul, everyone deserves to feel beautiful,” slow exhalations rustle the long leaves of live bamboo plants. Aestheticians slip past, leaving the scents of peppermint M’lis wraps and seasonal treatments in their wake.
The aestheticians at Nailed! beautify corporeal extremities with a broad scope of salon services, and helped the boutique earn Salt Lake magazine's Best of the Beehive award. The 90-minute salon package begins with a scented sugar scrub and massage that eases feet before toenails are shaped, filed, and decorated with an even coat of polish. Steam, tone, and moisturize tired mugs with a rejuvenating mini facial using Sanitas skincare products, and blanch chompers with a teeth-whitening BleachBright treatment that renders a bright smile more effectively than gargling with lightning.
During each of Divine Massage’s therapies, heated tables set the stage for relaxation while licensed therapists shoo away stress using hot towels and coconut oil. Swedish massages employ long, gliding strokes to comfortably kick-start blood flow and dispel tension for an experience as relaxing as a slow-motion hug. Stress sluggers delve below surface-level muscles during deep-tissue massages to uproot embedded knots. Deep-tissue massages often incorporate the muscle-lengthening motions of sports massage as well, stimulating recovery from athletic injuries. With a one-hour couples massage, pairs of friends, partners, and sports-team mascots sip cider before lying side by side while therapists promote relaxation with Swedish massage techniques. Clients can upgrade any massage to include hot stone, reflexology therapies, or four-hand massage, in which two therapists work simultaneously, for an additional cost.
