Clique Waxing Boutique focuses almost exclusively on body waxing. The boutique's aestheticians perform several hundred Brazilian waxes each week—some completed in as little as 15 minutes—with either traditional strip wax or sensitive hard wax. For especially delicate areas, a dollop of Relax & Wax No Scream Cream dulls pain sensors and subdues hairs before they weave themselves into an organized protest. New clients are encouraged to review Clique's waxing etiquette.
On faces, the boutique's crew uproots fringe via traditional Indian threading techniques or the Anastasia brow-shaping system from Los Angeles, which includes a series of measurements that help technicians taper brows to the most face-flattering shapes, such as circles or lightning bolts.
The studio's Bohemian-style décor—with vintage furnishings, framed art, a chandelier, and ornately framed mirrors—carries over into a retail space, where guests can peruse products including paraben-free makeup and lavender-mint Dead Sea–salt scrubs from gloMinerals.
No amount of time spent researching can replicate experience. So, when it comes to its weight-loss supervisors, Ageless Center gives its clients both?the staff members have lost more than 1,200 pounds collectively. So when they teach, they're drawing from memory as well as their studies. They utilize six programs to help people drop unwanted pounds, recalling their own struggles as they monitor each client's progress at weekly meetings. They've even written their own cookbook with healthy recipes and tips.
In the interest of boosting confidence even further, the center has its own medical spa onsite. There, visitors can treat their complexions to facials, fade wrinkles with injectables such as Botox, and clear away bothersome body hair or skin imperfections with laser procedures.
Seasons Light Therapy's team of aestheticians harnesses the restorative powers of noninvasive light to tone tired faces and banish skin discoloration. The succinct menu boasts LumiLift treatments, also known as nonsurgical face-lifts, during which strobes of pulsating light and micronized currents travel deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and tighten slack muscles without stern reprimands. Clients can also settle under the LumiFacial's Soli-Tone wraparound panel, which, like a malfunctioning rainbow, emits four different colors of healing light. Taking in these vibrant rays has been shown to reduce the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and acne. Microdermabrasion treatments also target these epidermal symptoms, smoothing over skin with fine sprays of exfoliating mineral crystals.
Ultra Tan Louisville helps skin retain a sunny disposition year-round through Mystic spray tanning and a variety of UV booths. Lounge under the cerulean lights of a regular UV bed, or garner glow from the VHR standup booth, which simulates the deep, blended tones normally acquired through outdoor activities or by sleeping under a high-wattage reading light. Clients can bronze bods in a Mega bed with or without a facial-tanning strip or laze under the dazzling purple bulbs of a Matrix high-pressure bed. For the bulb-shy, UV-free Mystic booths spritz skin with one of four tanning solutions that impart a natural-looking color, which can last up to 10 days if properly maintained with take-home products or daily visits to the neighborhood wishing well.
Owner Denise Willinger brings more than three decades of aesthetic and massage experience to her spa and boutique, which was voted Best Day Spa in 2012 and 2013 by city voters of the Louisville A List. Inside, gently lit swaths of coral cloak the walls to envelop visitors in a warm glow that matches post-facial complexions. Massage therapists, aestheticians, and microscopic yet highly trained pore spelunkers treat skin and nails to revivifying services. Special cellulite-busting treatments craft sleek silhouettes. CelluSleek creator Betty Harris hand selected just a few spas to debut her body-contouring system, and Serenity is on that exclusive list.
