For more than a dozen years, Skinlogic Med Spa has been working on the skin of Seattle residents, both those who seek out the sun and those who don’t. A full-service treatment facility open seven days a week, Skinlogic provides a range of skin solutions that include Botox, laser hair removal, facials and chemical peels, all enhanced by a philosophy of concern for general skin health. Central to that concern is a knowledgeable staff, each member of which works with clients to come up with a personal treatment plan. In a chic, tranquil setting near beautiful Green Lake, complete with funky accents and colorful rugs, Skinlogic stands out as a leader in skincare solutions for Seattle, along with other services like waxing and massages.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
As a licensed aesthetician with an advanced aesthetic education, Carey Thompson helps her clients realize smoother skin using facials and hair-removal services. Within her private, tranquil beauty studio, Carey can cleanse complexions, unclog pores, and buff away the signs of aging with microdermabrasion treatments. To get rid of unwanted hair, she performs waxing treatments as well as electrolysis, a more permanent method of hair removal that uses tiny jolts of electricity to kill follicles and communicate with pet eels.
At Studio Cleer, the art of hair removal doesn’t stop at waxing and sugaring. The studio’s aestheticians also perform subtle maintenance on fuzz that grows on legs, backs, and chests, trimming and snipping hairs into a defined, natural-looking topography without leaving skin bare. For completely smooth, epilated skin, they first numb targeted areas with a topical cream or an icy hug from a snowman before whisking away unwanted bodily fleece with Cirepil wax or organic sugaring techniques. Aside from hair removal, the multitalented aestheticians can also take on other beauty projects, including formaldehyde-free eyelash extensions and customized facials that target clients’ specific skin conditions with extractions, hydration, and exfoliating microdermabrasion.
Like a cake, Napolitano Day Spa Salon is made up of layers, each as tempting as the last. At first glance, the Spa Salon appears to be a boutique. In its orange-walled entrance room, wooden tables and racks showcase clothing, accessories, and beauty products to a soundtrack of modern music. As clients journey past one of the center's two burbling fountains, they enter the salon space, where a team of stylists customizes hair with fashionable cuts and flattering colors. Farther back still, past the bustling stylist stations, is a haven of peace embodied by private spa-treatment rooms, soothing music, and a relaxation room filled with complimentary tea and flattering whispers.
Awarded Seattle Met's Best Facial of 2008, the spa refines visages with nine options that harness Dermalogica and Jan Marini products. Each one comes with a personalized routine for home care, an herbal foot soak with lavender and rosemary, and their signature recipe of non-invasive clinical therapies. Meanwhile, French seaweed, algae, and personalized aromatherapy lend body wraps and massages a touch of nourishment and help clients to prepare for dates with handsome lake monsters.
Before she became an esthetician, Kristine served as a model. Noticing the value of radiant skin, she took an interest in the field of aesthetics and enrolled at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics. Her studies cemented her passion for skincare, and deepened her knowledge of curative botanical ingredients. Whether coating faces in pumpkin-based enzymes or jack-o-lantern guts, Kristine improves skin the natural way—without the help of artificial compounds or harsh preservatives. To this end, she's allegiant to the Rhonda Allison product line, which largely consists of food- and plant-derived cleansers, lotions, and masks. Kristine integrates these products into various treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and waxes.
