Above all else, Le Wax Boutique strives to turn every client's visit into an elegant and indulgent retreat. Damask-patterned walls, a gleaming crystal chandelier, and antique-inspired furniture fills the space, which more closely resembles a French sitting room than a day spa.
Within this stately environment, the skincare professionals do everything in their power to pamper visitors. Waxing treatments gently uproot unwanted hairs from limbs, torsos, or faces, leaving the areas as smooth as a freshly shaved ball bearing. Additionally, the spa's aestheticians perform a variety of facials and enzyme peels intended to improve skin tone by fading wrinkles, clearing up acne outbreaks, or simply restoring a youthful glow.
At Love Sugaring SD, skilled aesthetician Mailette extols the benefits of waxing with sugar paste instead of conventional wax. For one thing, sugaring is said to be more comfortable than waxing because it doesn't adhere to the skin. Additionally, sugaring is designed to keep ingrown hairs to a minimum, allowing skin to stay smooth for a longer period of time. But Mailette practices more than just sugaring; she also customizes facials, peels, and makeup using top-shelf products such as Rhonda Allison and MAC.
Tucked inside the homey, historic Burlingame Garage, Gingerly Wax feels more like a girlfriend's warm, inviting living room than a cold spa studio. That's most likely the effect owner Ginger Lee Rees was going for in order to help her clients feel at ease from the moment they walk through the door. A licensed cosmetologist, she and her team have chosen to direct all their energy to hair removal, providing full-body waxing services for both men and women. And, to make each session go as smoothly as possible, Ginger and her staff also provide some helpful tips for waxing clients, which include avoiding caffeine, exfoliating regularly, and never using the word "wax" anytime the hairs might be listening
Under the guidance of a master aesthetician, the staff of Lash Beautique unearths both stubborn impurities and everyday tension through its slate of skin treatments. The menu features classic facials and pumpkin peels to forge radiant faces, and licensed estheticians can also accent freshly cleansed complexions with facial waxing and custom lash extensions. Located between 30th Street and Ray Street in North Park, Lash Beautique provides clients of both sexes with the education they'll need to maintain their visages at home.
Next Level Skin Care takes eyelash extensions so seriously that the only application method the center uses is also one of the only patented methods in the United States. During applications, licensed medical aesthetician Candace King layers synthetic-natural hair hybrids onto the lids of both male and female clients. To get the treatment just right, she found guidance under Lôngmi Lashes creator Daniel Dinh, who trained King and certified her to apply his lashes at Next Level Skin Care.
King also customizes beauty treatments using a combination of advanced medical, therapeutic, and organic techniques. Her clinical facial includes an enzyme and resurfacing treatment that helps treat acne, aging skin, and hyperpigmentation, and her organic facial peel uses plant and fruit extracts to nourish skin. She also offers an eye rescue add-on treatment, during which freeze-dried collagen helps firm skin and reduce puffiness. To complement beautifying services, the boutique also sells mineral makeup, clothing, and feather hair extensions.
