Sunbathe's sugar-based tanning spray ($35 per application) bestows a bronzey sun kiss without the usual neon-orange streaks. Designed to soothe skin as much as gild it, the blend is free of harsh chemicals and includes wild botanical extracts, herbs, and artisanal antioxidants crafted by hand in the French Alps. If you prefer skin as pale as a salt kernel, opt for other beauty-bolstering spa services, such as an express manicure ($25), pedicure ($35), facial ($35+), or eyebrow threading ($18). Sunbathe also offers sugaring ($40 for a bikini), and massage therapy with a licensed therapist ($65 an hour).
Fingers and toes pop with vibrant colors after a trip to Lavish Styles Salon & Spa. Hair flows luxuriously down backs and skin glows luminously after decadent facials. Part salon, part spa, Lavish Styles' staff of aestheticians and stylists immerses its clients in pampering treatments from a menu of services. One of their standout specialties is hair extensions, which include Malaysian braid-less sew-ins, clear-tube shrinkies, and fertilized daisies. In addition to hair and nail sessions, they perform waxing services, facials, and makeup application.
The staff at Wrapped in Wellness specializes in treatments that aim to facilitate weight loss safely and effectively. For their signature contour wraps, they cocoon clients in wraps that work to eliminate toxins and reduce bodies by 6–30 inches—all without dehydration. Other weigh-loss options combine similar wraps with seaweed, clay, and infrared blankets. After smoothing out contours and shooing away cellulite, the technicians can complete new looks by applying a custom spray tan and expertly placing a maraschino cherry atop your head.
Within one of Spa 9's private, slate-tiled rooms, cushioned tables nestle half-slumbering clients as they lie face down, backs slathered with decadent body treatments. Five chrome showerheads release cascades of water to rinse the masks away and bring a revitalizing end to the body scrub, one of the spa's six relaxing body treatments. Meanwhile, visages are treated to a slate of facials that target oily or dry skin with exfoliating scrubs and soothing massage, and therapists harness three massage categories to drive away stress and chronic pain. Open until 9 p.m. on weeknights and all day on Saturday, clients can plan for Spa 9's pampering treatments even if they have hectic schedules or calendars full of appointments at the calendar factory.
The medical team at La Vraie Beauté Aesthetic Clinic, under the leadership of plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. James M. Landeen and aesthetic nurse injector Melanie Fulton-Ruiz, helps patients to reveal tighter, smoother, more sculpted versions of themselves with a menu of cosmetic services.
