"I am fascinated with the way muscles work and move," says Renew U Massage & Skincare owner Katanya Taite, citing one of the reasons she became a licensed massage therapist. A sincere interest in helping people feel and live better is another reason: "Life is filled with so much responsibility, people don't take enough time to focus on themselves."
The escapist element is apparent from the moment clients enter into her elegant gold and earth-toned bodywork enclave, where the sounds of flowing water and ocean waves engulf senses in serenity. Organic and vegan oils and serums add an eco-conscious element to all services including massages?which Katanya customizes to each client's particular aches and pains?and slimming body wraps designed to tighten and tone hard-to-trim areas. Also a licensed aesthetician, she customizes facials as well, beginning with an in-depth skin analysis before moving on to tailored treatments that include special formulations for men's skin, teen skin, and sensitive bearskin rugs.
The European-trained medical staff at Vytale Med Spa helps to restore patients' youthful appearance with advanced technology. The team's medical aestheticians hold certifications in specialized procedures such as microdermabrasion, laser hair-removal, and IPL photofacial treatments. To diminish wrinkles caused by the aging process or squinting at a Clint Eastwood movie, the team administers injections of Botox and dermal fillers. The crew also customizes medi facials with organic Osmosis products and addresses hyperpigmentation or blemishes with antioxidant peels by CosMedix. The med spa is housed within a modernistic white building with clean lines and a geometric design; in earth-toned private treatment rooms, candles flicker from within recessed shelves. The staff aims to ensure discreetness and privacy by eliminating public waiting rooms and creating a VIP-like experience.
Just as beautiful butterflies emerge from cocoons, beautiful skin emerges from Perfect Skin and Body Care Day Spa’s body wraps. Powered by Swiss Methode Physiodermie products, the treatments can boost circulation, deep clean and exfoliate, or enhance the skin’s elasticity. The spa’s face and body treatments encompass facials as well, which can combat aging by catalyzing cell renewal, or manage rosacea’s early stages more effectively than applying the salty, age-defying tears of celebrities. The spa’s Thai Samunprai herbal massage incorporates a compress of herbs and essential oils and is just one of the offered massage styles. The aesthetic team also administers beauty basics, painting fingers and toes with OPI polishes, and waxing away stubble.
The team at Advanced Skin Care & More soothes body and mind with a synergy of ancient techniques and modern technology. Aestheticians with medical or paramedical training precede every facial with a skin analysis and black-light screening, which can detect skin conditions or milk mustaches. After determining the client's unique skincare needs, an aesthetician cleanses and exfoliates with natural and organic products. Some treatments combat signs of aging with infrared or intense pulsed light, microcurrents, and ultrasound. Aside from facials, the day spa offers massage modalities that range from deep tissue to champissage, an Ayurvedic form of head massage that stimulates the scalp and upper body to increase circulation and the ability to wiggle each ear independently.
At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology. The experts shy away from invasive surgery and instead employ ultrasonic technology to target fat deposits and ultherapy to sculpt arms and necks. The spa’s arsenal also includes detoxifying and slimming body wraps, as well as chemical peels that help erase fine lines and other signs of aging. For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
Inside BeWell Salon, guests find a massive menu of aesthetic services backed by the expertise of a multitalented staff specializing in everything from chip-free manicures to permanent makeup. Stylists revamp locks with precision haircuts, Schwarzkopf color, and non-resin-bonded I-Tip hair extensions, and trained aestheticians utilize the BioGenesis system to revitalize dull complexions with gentle, crystal-free microdermabrasion treatments. They also wield azulene cream wax to quickly strip away unwanted fuzz without agitating sensitive skin and perform seven different Yon-Ka facials, each designed to target specific skin concerns ranging from acne to clown makeup that won't wash off.
