In a white-trimmed house steps from Alki Beach, aesthetician Trudy Muller works to leave clients' skin feeling as fresh as a sea breeze. Beneath the facial room's shimmering chandelier, she pampers visages with Dermalogica products and organic mud from the Austrian moor, taking care to customize experiences to specific needs and comfort levels. A sunlit waxing room with a soft, white bed hosts treatments for bikini lines and eyebrows, as well as glittery vajazzling. Trudy often doles out helpful beauty tips during sessions and lets her love for educating clients spill over onto a blog full of waxing pointers and humorous musings about her work.
Trudy’s passion for beautification doesn’t stop at clients. She also believes in beautifying the planet, a value she evidences by using eco-friendly skincare products. Additionally, Trudy welcomes patrons to bring in empty product bottles for recycling, an incentive backed up by an offer of receiving 5% off their next purchase.
A slimmer, smaller waistline. Soft, glowing skin. These cosmetic dreams become reality at Body and Face Esthetics, a studio dedicated to helping clients look and feel their best. Skin care expert Mari tailors every facial treatment to the recipient's needs or concerns, combining cleansers, peels, and compliments to leave any complexion radiant. Her waxing services gently and effectively banish unwanted hair with hard or soft formulas from Cirepil, while noninvasive ultrasound cavitation sessions help reduce localized fat and contour bodies.
The technicians at Sound Body and Face specialize in three aesthetic areas: ultrasound cavitation, facials, and waxing. In a process that has been featured on Dr. Oz, non-invasive body sculpting-treatments send ultrasound waves to penetrate the skin and break down the contents of fat cells. In doing so, the process can render slimmer silhouettes as this waste leaves the body via the lymphatic system. Further north, facials comprise cleansing and massages, and waxing treatments oust excess fuzz from brows, lips, and chins.
Clients relax as they sip frothy beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's two locations aim to make waxing or sugaring a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' jangling nerves with drinks from the wet bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure sugaring and waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica and Aveda.
