Inside a quaint English Tudor–style building surrounded by blooming flowers, spa owners Mirka Figueroa and Samuel Figueroa, MD, help beautify clients from head to toe with a slate of treatments. Mirka, a medical aesthetician, enhances skin with dermatological services such as microdermabrasions, photofacials, and peels. Her husband, Dr. Samuel, uses his medical expertise to supervise weight-management programs and erase the hatch marks left by Father Time with injections of Botox and other fillers. To create a one-stop beauty haven, they also enlist an expert staff of hairstylists, nail techs, and makeup artists.
Permanent Great Looks Salon & Spa’s team of spa technicians enhances exteriors with a comprehensive menu of skin, body, and nail treatments. Manicure services provide customers with nails painted with Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to two weeks, even after wearers build sand castles to store stockpiles of shucked oyster shells. Toes simmer in heated bubble basins before curling up in steamy towels in the pedicure room, and aestheticians stationed in serene private rooms treat skin to body scrubs designed to polish surfaces and stir circulation. The active ingredients in body-scrub formulas range from Dead Sea salt to organic brown sugar steeped with essential oils and more conducive to soft skin than intercepting sneezes from the Marshmallow Man.
After years of struggling with skin problems, Jessica decided to fight the battle head-on and dove into the world of aesthetics. She learned not only how to vanquish dermal problems, but also why they even exist—little tidbits she happily shares with her clients at Mahsa's Signature Salon.
Jessica diminishes acne, oil, and dry patches using Image skincare products such as a hydrating hyaluronic facial enhancer and eye-lift gel. She expertly buffs away dead skin cells, snowflakes, and dirt trapped in pores using exfoliating enzyme masks and micro-polish scrubs, and she further relaxes clients by combining aromatherapy with steam treatments.
