Somewhere in a desert cavern in Arizona, mineral-rich ionite clay is being harvested from the ground in smooth, silky batches. It's destined for exclusive Pavay services and take-home Pavay organic exfoliating cleansers and essential-oil-imbued cleansing bars, sold exclusively at Salon Avé dayspa • medspa.
The day spa's aestheticians use the spa’s signature line of all-natural, organic skincare products during custom facials, body wraps, and relaxing mani-pedis. According to a 2009 Press Publications article, the Pavay product owners and formulators earn enthusiastic high-fives from Mother Nature by producing the line locally using recyclable and partially biodegradable packaging materials.
But skincare isn't the only thing the Salon Avé dayspa • medspa team does well, as evidenced by their 2013 Talk of the Town News Customer Satisfaction Award. They also design new hairdos and loosen muscles with hot-stone massages, and relieve lines and wrinkles with full line of injectables. To enhance beauty from the inside out, they offer body-slimming Zerona treatments. One client’s Zerona success story was even featured on Twin Cities Live and in her mom’s Christmas letter that year.
When it comes to getting a healthy glow, that big star at the center of the solar system doesn't always make it easy. For those who don't have the time to rotisserie themselves between breaks in the clouds, Paradise Tanning of Circle Pines offers an array of indoor bronzing options. That includes 11 lie-down tanning beds and one stand-up unit for the horizontally averse, where epidermal shades darken in 12- to 20-minute sessions. Meanwhile, Mystic Tan spray tans deliver beach-ready beautification in a fraction of that time, bronzing bodies in a up and down airbrush motion that takes mere seconds. Once bodies have adopted their new golden glow, Paradise Tanning helps them develop the confidence to show it off by offering seaweed, dry-mineral, and collagen-enriched aloe vera body wraps, which flush away internal poisons and cellulite and help tighten skin.
Stonewater Skin and Laser offers an assortment of cosmetic services, including peels, laser hair removal, scar revision, and skin tightening. With today’s deal, Stonewater's medical director Dr. Dave Christianson will inject between-the-brow muscles with Botox, a purified protein formula, giving recipients reduced frown lines and younger-looking skin. The mildly invasive treatments take 10–15 minutes to administer, and can help relaxed muscles reminisce about their glory days for up to four months after each unit.
