Prevail administers precise, professional facials, peels, and microdermabrasions. Return your face to its factory-fresh condition with the one-hour version of the shine-unblocking facial, including a tendon de-tensing shoulder and neck massage. After the facial, choose between a microdermabrasion treatment or chemical peel or get both for an additional $20. Both services smooth out the skin and decrease pore size, leaving spa-goers with the type of softer, cleaner skin that highlights cheek tattoos and leaves a smooth true-to-life impression when pressed into wet cement. Prevail’s low-key atmosphere, replete with relaxing tunes and subtle lighting, offers a complementary ambiance for holistically restorative sessions.

The in-house massage therapist turns worried thoughts into a slow-motion reel of waterfalls and meditating tax collectors with soothing massages.

Razors combines a classic barbershop feel with contemporary cuts and styling, with its spa services recently expanded to include services for women.

A 30-minute deep-tissue massage ($65) preps overworked male or female muscles, and the 30-minute junior-varsity sports massage ($65) can increase athletic ability, reduce the risk of injury, and assist you in your quest to become the first person to climb Mt. Everest while on a horse. Deep-clean the dermis with a 30-minute facial ($50) or revitalize a fatigued face with a micro-peel ($50). Razors also offers waxing services, with arms ($50 each) and eyebrows ($20) just some of the body parts susceptible to deforestation.
Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm require injection by a steady, confident hand. Not only has Beautiful U Aesthetics’ nurse, Anne Hubbard, mastered the ministration of these cosmetic boosters, she's demonstrated the procedure on a live KARK 4 segment to illustrate the simplicity of the process and prove that she could do it while riding a unicycle and reciting the Cyrillic alphabet. Anne’s specialties range from skin-smoothing injectables to facial services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. She can also apply permanent eyeliner above and below the peepers, enhancing clients’ natural features without the wastefulness of applying makeup every morning or using up a birthday wish on something besides preventing asteroid strikes.
