Yulia brought her skin-revitalizing talents to Yulia's Skin Care after attaining the status of master aesthetician in Boston, where her work earned her spots on Best of Boston lists in area publications such as Stuff magazine. With certifications in microdermabrasion, enzyme peels, and stone facials, she has the training to adeptly coerce blemishes and discolorations from the face using a slew of skin treatments. For each treatment, Yulia's Skin Care's aestheticians select from their arsenal of nourishing products, and even arm themselves with specialty products, such as heated mittens and pumpkin-enzyme purées, for massages and facials. They also leverage their expertise to exfoliate, steam, and massage the skin on their clients' backs, shape brows, and wax away hair that refuses to take the bait of staticy balloon animals.
From its perch within Beauty Avenue, A.R. Beauty Boutique's roster of beauticians directs passersby to new aesthetic heights with a menu of services for the skin and body. Waxing for a wide range of areas prevents loitering fuzz from encroaching on prime epidermal real estate, and eyebrow tinting adds extra oomph to peepers. Three types of facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments remedy acne and worn-out complexions, and the soothing modalities of an Indian head massage bring comfort to scalps stressed from wearing maltese puppies as hair extensions.
Mishal may operate inside of Eyebrows R Us Salon—where she creates elegant arches with threading techniques—but there’s more to her expertise than just brows. She also paints skin with henna to create elaborate body art and affixes hair with vibrant new hues to lend a unique look to each client.

Attention to detail separates Le JJ Belle Pedicure from its fellow salons and spas. The staff understand the power of peace of mind, so they use glass sinks without any of the standard spa fixtures in which bacteria might establish footholds, such as jets, filters, tubes, and petri dishes. With that same sense of cleanliness, they carry out an array of manicures, pedicures, and waxing services. For instance, during deluxe chocolate mani-pedis, technicians soak feet in a warm milk-and-honey blend. They then apply hawaiian chocolate body sand to eliminate dry skin before finishing with a dark-chocolate moisturizing cream.
