At Sofya's European Skin Care, owner Sofya draws from more than 25 years of experience in the skin care field to keep skin healthy and fresh. Sofya's specialty is treating severe and cystic acne, though she can also tackle a wide range of complexion issues with help from LED light therapy, crystal-free microdermabrasion, and high quality, organic products by brands such as Epicuren, Jadience, and EMK Placental. Sofya infuses the skin with moisture during hydrotherapy facials, removes bacteria during acne facials, and reduces hyperpigmentation during brightening facials. Of course, beauty isn't confined to the face, which is why the spa's services also include organic waxing, back facials, and massage.
At Blue Sand Mind & Body, a group of practitioners comes together to ply its signature trade: traditional Thai massage. Generally considered more rigorous than other modalities, Thai massage mixes stretching maneuvers with deep and targeted pressure. For those who prefer a more relaxing massage, the staff is equally proficient at Swedish, Hawaiian lomilomi, and hot-stone massage, among other treatments. Like a really good wide receiver, Blue Sand is open every day of the week and caters to those with busy schedules by staying open until 8 p.m. each day.
Beyond Harmony Med Spa infuses its services with natural elements, from algae-clay treatments that help diminish cellulite to salt scrubs that slough off dead skin and eliminate toxins. Using brand-name products, the staff pampers clients with hydrating multivitamin facials, aromatherapy foot massages, and parafango body wraps that swaddle guests in warm herbal paraffin mud. Between beautification sessions, clients can relax in the med spa's quiet room, sipping herbal tea and listening to the gentle hissing of stress leaving the body.

The aesthetic experts at Spa Shizen pamper patrons from head to toe with a bag of visage- and digit-enhancing tricks. Microdermabrasion treatments send dead skin cells onto their next lives as Halloween masks, and permanent makeup ensures eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner stay put. Unruly strands find themselves realigned after a Brazilian blowout, and waxing services remove unwanted body and facial hair. Guests can also opt for a wide range of mani-pedis to polish their finger and toe armor. Additionally, Spa Shizen's aestheticians pass on their extensive knowledge during eyelash-extension, waxing, and permanent-makeup classes for professionals.
