Enveloped in a warm, tawny-hued interior, Willow Glen Tanning's team has cultivated a spectrum of healthy skin tones since daybreak on the new millennium. The staff greets new customers with a skin-analysis questionnaire, which can help determine the most effective method for creating a base tan or for downgrading a sports competitor's silver trophy. Among the salon's tanning equipment, six UV beds re-create the sun's handiwork with medium- or high-pressure technology, which relies on UV-B rays to kickstart the production of skin-darkening melanin or UV-A rays to deepen an existing tan. Also geared toward customized color, sunless spray tanning is performed by an airbrush technician equipped with organic, aloe-vera-enriched bronzer, or by an automated Mystic Tan spray booth, which puts four shades of bronzing formulas at the client's fingertips. Spray treatments can be augmented with red-light-therapy sessions, which stimulate collagen production to firm and rejuvenate skin from the inside out.
Bristles brush against the skin, agitating dead cells and tickling the cheeks while a vacuum simultaneously sucks up the freed flakes. After the exfoliation, a customized paraben-free solution is applied to your skin. This is the DermaSweep system, which aesthetician Victoria Spitters uses to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dehydration, all while being gentle to sensitive skin. In addition to rejuvenating faces, Victoria also waxes away unwanted hair.
Minh Ha learned about relaxing the body from the inside out?literally. She started her career as a massage therapist before expanding her skill set to incorporate an array of facials, body treatments, and waxing. Today, she combines the two disciplines to ameliorate sore muscles, smooth wrinkles, and clear blemishes, which she achieves with Dermalogica, Yonka, and Jan Marini professional products.
Choose between one of three relaxing massage techniques including the deep tissue, Swedish, or signature. The deep tissue is a pressurized, full-body technique that seeks the deepest knots and unties them with the proficiency of a Boy Scout with adult hands. Go with the Swedish if you prefer traditional, long strokes tied to a gentle muscular overhaul. The signature treatment includes a total body pampering with extra attention given to comforting the hands and feet using heated spa treatments.
Ten years. That's how long it took the experts at Oceanic Foot Spa to perfect their signature foot massage, which incorporates elements of reflexology to help promote relaxation throughout the body. But the spa's pampering services don't stop at the ankles. Full-body massages treat recipients to soothing Swedish sessions or tension-relieving hot-stone treatments, and facials provide custom cleansing. Once their service ends, clients can sip on goji berry-rose tea and wiggle their freshly de-stressed toes.
The body-purifying staff at The Detox Cottage assists in flushing out intestinal tracts and evicting harmful bodily toxins with a portfolio of preventive health and wellness services. For clients who are uninitiated with the colon-cleansing process, amicable technicians lend an ear, resolving concerns and touting the potential health benefits.
A 30-minute consultation precedes every colonic and takes place in a private treatment room with soft music and low lights. Once acquainted with each client's health needs, therapists may suggest other detoxifying treatments, such as massages, infrared-sauna sessions, or sprints through local car washes.
