Serene Day Spa's skincare specialists use a combination of physician-strength Laboratories products and customized treatments to coax the healthiest and brightest tones from their clients' skin. Their treatments incorporate both nourishing and pampering elements. For example, the Serene Signature Facial includes a deep cleaning, masque application, extractions, and a heated hand massage to induce relaxation and make the complexion glow. They also tend to the rest of the body with the Parafango Treatment, during which they wrap you with mud and a thermal blanket to relieve muscle soreness and convince earthworms that you're their new king.
The aestheticians at Divine Threading Studio treat clients to services as modern as Dermalogica facials and as traditional as henna tattoos. The salon specializes in depilation treatments, which remove hair using either the familiar heated-wax method or the ancient Eastern threading technique that's considered more appealing to people with sensitive skin. The aestheticians also showcase their precise handiwork by applying intricately designed henna tattoos, which weave their way up the hands and arms of brides-to-be or clients who want to test-drive a tattoo design for a few weeks. For a finishing touch, clients can ask for an ear or nose piercing, face accessories as stylish as Mr. Potato Head's during Fashion Week.
