Drawing from her family's catalog of natural wax recipes, the proprietor of Girl from Ipanema Spa evicts fuzz with homemade waxes designed to play nice with sensitive skin. The spa's aestheticians also rejuvenate visages with facials that rely on either organic ingredients or high-tech methods, as in the photofacial, which skips PPx pulsed light across skin ponds to break up rosacea, sun damage, and other imperfections. Amidst green-tea-hued walls, exfoliating sea salts and essential oils remove dry skin and prepare bodies for airbrush tanning. Visitors can cop a full range of Éminence handmade organic skincare products to continue their bodycare at home or on the giant hamster wheels they've agreed to live on for science.

In most cases, being caked in mud leaves you wanting a shower. Not so at SueliMatos Skincare Therapy, where warm mud, peat, and clay boosts circulation and helps open follicles. Mud is among many soothing ingredients used by the licensed aesthetician, Sueli Matos, who enriches epidermises with exfoliating algae masks and skin-tightening collagen masks. She also combats the effects of acne with minerals plucked from the Dead Sea. Though she mostly works wonders for faces, Sueli's services also extend to the rest of the body. For example, she breaks down cellulite by administering massages with mechanical suction during a treatment called vacuum therapy, which doesn't involve confiding your deepest secrets to your vacuum. To encourage clients to keep skin healthy before and after treatment, Sueli also stocks organic products from Shira Esthetics, each full of rejuvenating botanical antioxidants.

According to Tricia Hetherington, founder of The Pretty Kitty, the perfect Brazilian wax requires a specific technique that she's developed herself. That's why she personally trains each one of her aestheticians—no simple task, considering that she operates locations in California, Nevada, Texas, and New Jersey—to remove hair using soft wax formulated for sensitive skin. The process takes fewer than 15 minutes, and frees clients to wear the skimpiest of swimsuits and lingerie. A chandelier casts a glow over the pink-toned interior of the newly opened Montclair location, where a wall stencil depicts a feline casting a sidelong glance. Within treatment rooms, aestheticians wax men's and women's bodies, leaving behind smooth, clean expanses of skin. Hygiene is of the utmost importance to The Pretty Kitty's specialists, who never double dip waxing sticks, reuse wax, or procure it from Madame Tussaud's castoff sculptures.

The clean white-brick exterior of Nadia's Full Service Salon & Spa gives way to an similarly minimalist interior. Walk past the marble-topped coffee island, the curved reception area, and a back-lit retail display, and you'll find hairstylists and makeup artists busy with makeovers. Nail technicians helm manicure stations made of pine and marble, and beauticians prep their clients in the cozy shampoo area, where chocolate-brown walls play off the chairs and polished shampoo bowls. In a private treatment room decorated with a single flower vase and skylight, skincare specialists conduct facials and microdermabrasions that combat signs of aging, like the urge to give out hard candy to youngsters. Nadia's also offers select massage treatments and waxing.
