Renee’s initial meeting with clients includes a consultation so she can create an appropriate treatment plan to combat an array of pesky skin problems. A licensed aesthetician since 2001, she's equipped to deal with it all. She offers specialty facials to treat acne and signs of aging, and smoothes dimpled skin on the body with cellulite treatments. Renee also removes unwanted fuzz on body parts large and small, including backs, legs, ears, and third eyebrows.
With its retro-patterned hand painted walls, exposed bulb fixtures, and vibrant color palette, Dick and Jane Waxing Salon exudes a chic, vintage vibe. That classic look, however, is a sharp contrast to the modern waxing treatments the salon's skincare specialists dole out to both men and women. And the hair removal techniques aren't old fashioned either––to imbue both sexes with soft skin, staff select sugar-based, water soluble waxes. That said, all of Dick and Jane's waxes are gentle enough to be used to extract hair from the entire body, including brows, backs, and bums.
Inside the salon space of S.D. Wax Queen, aestheticians smoothen skin with swiftly administered waxing treatments. Prior to sessions, especially the more intimate sessions such as the Brazilian bikini wax, staffers hold a brief consultation to explain the process and establish expectations. They then begin waxing areas, and sell specially designed Pore Restore and No Bump formulas to help skin stay smooth for up to six weeks or about the amount of time it takes to swim speedily across the Indian Ocean. In addition to performing waxing services, the team beautifies clients with six different styles of facials and customized, sunless spray tans that leave clients looking like bronze statues that can actually reciprocate hugs.

Additional services include massages, aromatherapy, body wraps and champagne-cork shooting ranges to forge relaxing, memorable events.

Within a cozy, sunlit spa decorated with colorful abstract art, Bella Brazil pampers its patrons with a robust menu of waxing, facial, and sunless-tanning services. Inside the private treatment rooms aestheticians remove unwanted hair from sensitive areas such as the eyebrows, bikini line, and spirit animal. Skincare specialties include an indulgent European-style facial that cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes visages, and wrinkle-lift treatments that banish crows’-feet back to their telephone wires. Bella Brazil's five-minute sunless tanning uses an airbrush to gild skin in a customized hue that can last as long as one week.
