Keep It Young’s professional, certified aestheticians act as comfort concierges, summoning their experience and a philosophy of treating spa services as a craft to curate custom, soothing experiences for every client. Making good on the spa’s name, they strip away signs of aging with a comprehensive roster of services, eliminating age-inducing stress with massage, and buffing wrinkles with medical-grade facials, microdermabrasion, and resurfacing treatments. In addition to cleansing skin, they help keep epidermises smooth through hair-removal treatments that uproot fuzz with techniques such as body sugaring, electrolysis, and waxing. Whether returning smoother complexions to faces with IPL acne-clearing treatments, or harvesting wax to make homemade vinyl records during ear candling, the meticulous pamper practitioners aim to keep clients relaxed.
Zen Wellness and Retreat?s aestheticians purify the body, shape its contours, and polish its exterior. Holistic-healing arts distinguish Zen?s menu, with sessions that redirect energy and restore balance, such as ear candling Lady Justice. Traditional pampering reveals youthful, healthy skin with topical scrubs and tonics, as well as mechanical exfoliators. Slimming treatments take the form of spa pampering or dietary supplements, and six modes of massage therapy soften hard muscles.
What began in 1985 as a small, six-chair salon has evolved into Color Room Salon & Day Spa, the realized vision of beauty expert and master stylist Pamela Anderson. Today, Anderson's 4,200-square-foot space boasts 18 styling chairs, 25 employees, and membership in both the National Cosmetology Association and the Chicago Cosmetology Association. You can see Anderson's Romancing Freedom collection in a fashion shoot featured in Salon Magazine and on the website Tupelu. Hair's How magazine noted that "body and volume, form and ease of detailed styling" were showcased in the "dramatic, glamorous" collection.
Anderson pours as much heart and creativity into the design of her salon as she does into updos and highlights. Estetica magazine says that she has successfully used a "refreshing palette of bright colors" to create a modern ambiance that, like a rapper sampling an Enya tune, is best described as "urban chic meets New Age charm." Warm red and orange tones are juxtaposed with an abundance of green plants, and red crystal vases and colorful abstract paintings boldly accent the walls' muted hues.
The caring team outfits guests with comfy robes for services ranging from cuts, colors, and Hairtini steam-conditioning treatments to indulgent mani-pedis, facials, and massages. The staff also gives back to the community, hosting charitable functions for organizations such as the National Autism Association of Northwest Indiana, the St. Jude House in Crown Point, and the Ronald McDonald House.
The bright mod color scheme of yellow, gray, and white that dominates About Face Skin Care isn't just a design choice?it also nods to the spa's mission to help clients look and feel more youthful. Wielding PCA skincare products, staff members nourish skin and restore its glow with customized facials. They also use microdermabrasion wands to smooth over fine lines and wrinkles, and an Aerolase laser to erase unwanted body hair quicker than a tiny, handheld lawnmower. The spa even pampers clients beneath the skin with massages conducted in a private room, where a plush bed with decorative pillows awaits tired bodies.
Z Medical Spa transforms bodies at the surface level and beyond. Laser hair-removal bestows long-term smoothness, much like being born with the name Rex Velvetine. Weight-loss plans, on the other hand, focus on health for clients at any age. Throughout both services, a physician is on hand to supervise treatment, and technicians focus on efficiency and cleanliness.
