Every time Linda Dang performs a facial, she tweaks her method slightly to account for the differences in individual skin types. A licensed medical aesthetician with more than 14 years expertise in anti-aging skincare, she offers more than a dozen facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, dermaculture Iontophoresis, and chemical peels. The variety of treatments ensures that she can offer her clients options for all skin types when they want to combat acne, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or overexposure to the sun. She also offers other cosmetic services, including permanent-makeup applications, micropigmentation, eyebrow tinting, and mole removal. Semipermanent eyelash extensions elongate natural lashes to eliminate the need for mascara and eyelash curlers, and can last indefinitely with proper home care and regular touch-ups.

If you've ever experienced a Thai yoga massage, you know just how different it is from a typical massage. After helping you relax into a yoga position, the therapist applies pressure to specific points along the body to relieve pain and stress. Each new position roots out another pocket of tension and improves circulation throughout the body.
As its name implies, Thai Massage Retreat specializes in this unique modality. In fact, the spa is one of the top places in the entire state to get a traditional Thai massage. But that's not the only service they offer; in fact, the spa features a full menu of facials, manicures, haircuts, and waxing treatments.
Bella Nails and More's pedicures are more than a polish and a file.
