Alexis McMillan powers up her dual licenses as a massage therapist and aesthetician to deliver a one-two punch to anxiety and the signs of aging. She's even found a way to swirl the two practices, earning a certificate in facial rejuvenation massage, a technique that works to alleviate TMJ symptoms and improves muscle tone for firmer faces. At The Si Spa, the staff draws up the blueprints for innovative facials that include everything from raspberry enzymes and a strawberry-spearmint mask to lemon juice. Their massages are equally unique, blending Swedish techniques with deeper pressure to reduce stress and untie triple-knotted muscles.
While working alongside a facial plastic surgeon, Kim saw day in and day out the desperate measures patients would take for beautiful skin. Yet putting beauty before health wasn’t something the licensed aesthetician could support, so she hung up her lab coat and went on to open her own spa, Skin Essentials, where today she helps clients achieve their best skin without going under the knife. Kim works with patients to design effective, personalized skincare regimes and kick-starts the journey with in-shop treatments, including facials for aging and acne, and microdermabrasion treatments. She delves deeper with Medi services that range from surgery-free face-lifts to wrinkle-reducing treatments, such as chemical peels and baby-kissing sessions. Aside from saving skin, Kim also adds cosmetic touches with eyelash extensions and brow tinting.
Zen Garden Skincare sprung from simple origins, when skilled aesthetician Susan Morris began treating clients to facials and spa treatments in her house. Today, Susan has set up shop in her own private studio at the Healy Sunset Building where she provides an array of professional skincare services from body waxing to chemical peels. Customers recline on cushy beds as Susan administers facials, smoothing skin and diminishing wrinkles using hydrating algae and marine-plant-infused formulas. Tending to everyone with her pampering ministrations, she even offers specialty facial and waxing services for men and wooden puppets who wish they were men. During many of her facials, Susan further soothes clients with hand, face, neck, and shoulder massages.
