At first blush, Millennium Medi Spa seems to suffer from a crisis of identity. On one hand, the med spa relies on the clinical expertise of its physician directors to rejuvenate clients’ skin with advanced treatments. But one can’t help but notice the tranquil, spa-like atmosphere and the profusion of treatments—mani-pedis, massages, hydrating facials—that seem rooted in relaxation more than anything else.
These two personalities converge seamlessly thanks to a staff that splits its focus between results and relaxation. Technicians beautify nails with scrubs, paraffin dips, and glossy coats of polish while aestheticians tighten skin and release toxins with body wraps. Similarly results-based procedures include chemical peels, dermal fillers, and vibradermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and barnacles stuck to the face.
A maven is defined as a person who has special knowledge or experience, and the stylists at Maven proudly embody this definition. The multicultural hair experts can work with hair of any length, texture, and color. Their services include restorative conditioning treatments, bold color or highlights, basic and creative hairstyles, and relaxers.
Simply You Med Spa's licensed skin tenders exalt appearances with a range of noninvasive physician-supervised services in a friendly atmosphere. During a microdermabrasion, the aesthetician enlists a fleet of crystals to exfoliate skin cells. The procedure, which lasts about 30 minutes with no downtime, abolishes fleshly flaws including acne scars, wrinkles, sun-damaged complexion, and oversnug wrestling masks, leaving skeleton covers silkier. A Botox treatment reins in gravity-afflicted dermises with a naturally occurring protein that relaxes the muscular culprits behind crows feet and frown lines. Faces retain firmness for three to four months before turning back into pumpkins.
Pineapples and papaya have escaped the grocery store, and their enzymes have found their way into deep pore-cleansing treatments at Kay’s Salon & Spa. The staff use inventive ingredients such as these to refresh their clients and address aesthetic or musculoskeletal issues. Massage therapists, for instance, use heated stones to complement gentle kneads. Makeup artists, alternatively, can highlight facial features with professional makeup applications. The team also places a premium on comfort, like King George III—who wouldn't even sit on a velvet cushion unless it had another velvet cushion on it. They carry out that emphasis by inviting guests to slip into a provided robe and slippers, which can then be worn throughout the spa. While waiting for their service or on their way out, guests can feel free to peruse a collection of jewelry and handbags for sale along with a selection of styling products.
Since Benjamin Hair & Co. has 10 hair stylists, three nail techs, and an aesthetician on staff, you'd expect the salon to cover a lot of different services, and you wouldn't be disappointed. There are the usual suspects—keratin treatments, Brazilian waxing, specialty facials—and then there are also hard-to-find treatments: staffers slather on acne-busting Meditouch clinical skincare products, apply Hair Dreams or Brijon Hair extensions, and shave eyebrows into miniature mohawks. They also collect hair donations for Locks of Love, a charitable organization that makes wigs for children who have medical conditions that cause hair loss.
Boeau Belle Salon and Spa’s professional aestheticians and cosmetologists use high-end Aveda products to groom and care for skin and nails. They deep clean congested skin and smooth away dryness during custom facials, and their skin-safe botanical resurfacing treatments hydrate hands and feet during mani-pedis. These skincare experts can care for epidermis from the neck down, too. They offer body wraps and body waxing to get legs slip 'n' slide–competition ready.
