Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
A license in cosmetology isn't enough for a stylist to hit the floor at T'nT Concept Salon—they also have to go through the salon's own training program. After that, they have all of the skills necessary to perform the services on the salon's menu, which include haircuts, conditioning treatments, beard trims, extensions, updos, permanent waves, and smoothing keratin treatments. The salon also houses a color bar, where the staff mixes hues for highlights and all-over color treatments and where many Crayola crayons mistakenly go for a drink.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
Harmony Wellness & Spa exudes tranquility from the moment guests walk through its doors. Soothing scents waft throughout the cool-toned space that's accented by orchids and other potted plants, setting the stage for a host of serene beauty and wellness services.
Dermalogica skincare treatments include an exfoliating botanical peel and facials enhanced by firming seaweed and anti-aging caviar masks. Clients can also indulge in mani-pedis with skin-softening paraffin wraps and invigorating sugar scrubs, as well as shellac polish, which stays chip-free for up to 14 days no matter how many times they run their fingers through a coworker's luxurious hair.
Harmony Wellness & Spa offers detoxifying programs in various lengths, too. For 7, 14, or 21 days, patrons use NutriClean cleansing systems in conjunction with BioSlimming wraps to rid their bodies of impurities.
After a visit to the pros at Extravaganza Nails and Spa, you might find your daily beauty routine drastically shortened. The need for mascara disappears after an eyelash specialist applies thick extensions, just as the need to cover up acne vanishes after an exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment. And if you have several skin needs, no worries?a number of facials can be combined during a single appointment.
