For Jade DiPersio, looking good extends beyond personal appearance. According to a spotlight story in the Daily Item, her first order of business as a new salon owner was to renovate the fusty interior of her new space. Gone were the shaggy carpets and outdated countertops, replaced by sleek hardwood floors and six styling stations designed to Jade’s exacting standards. Here, expert technicians wax wayward fuzz, snip split ends, and coax out underlying color with highlights. Two pedicure stations eschew bacteria-friendly jets for sanitary surfaces set in front of a plush bench embellished with zebra stripes. Jade has calibrated the environment to put all clients at ease, with violet accents and jungle-print smocks adding a splash of whimsy to makeovers or midmakeover will readings.
The knowledgeable aestheticians at Sky Skin Center fend off unwanted follicles, signs of aging, and skin conditions with an assortment of spa and laser treatments. During laser hair-removal sessions, strand assassins take aim at unsightly bristles with Candela GentleMax or Palomar lasers, allowing patients to become perfectly drag-free for Olympic slip 'n' slide time trials. Med-spa treatments—such as chemical peels, photofacials, vascular treatments, and microdermabrasion—tackle conditions as varied as rosacea, acne scarring, and sun damage. Skin-lift injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse, restore visages' youthful appearance, and soothing facials and massages ease muscle tension caused by trying to dead-lift 50-pound sunglasses.
Central Place Skin Care Salon combines a bevy of spa packages with a candlelit, Victorian atmosphere to craft rejuvenating and beautifying spa experiences. During the Relaxation Vacation package, a one-hour massage mollifies muscles by employing Swedish techniques and emotional blackmailing to coax bodily tension into quietly leaving. Then, a half-hour Reiki treatment utilizes ancient techniques of manual energy direction, designed to instill a full-body sense of wellbeing. Finally, a customized European facial pampers weary countenances with facial steaming and exfoliation, face and décolleté massage, and a nourishing mask to battle skin flaws while concealing secret identities.
