Robin Olmsted, the licensed aesthetician behind Uptown Skin, graduated from her cosmetology school as the valedictorian of her class. In a treatment area located within Uptown Hair Salon, she helps clients optimize their natural beauty with purifying facials, diamond-tip microdermabrasion, and advanced skincare techniques, such as microcurrent facials, which exercise facial muscles to reduce fine lines. Patrons can also opt for soothing spa treatments, such as the cellulite-reducing full-body seaweed wrap.
The versatile aestheticians at Halcyon Skin Spa beautify skin and body with customized facial cleansing, exfoliation treatments, and all-over waxing services. During custom spa facials, technicians soothe and nourish the face's skin with ointments and tinctures, while relaxing the body with shoulder and neck massages. Deep-pore and microdermabrasion treatments remove blockages from pores and dead cells from the skin, and waxing procedures banish unwanted hair for weeks to come.
