Alora Ambiance Spa owner Patricia Rivas has worked as a licensed aesthetician and skincare specialist for nearly a decade. Along the way, she's picked up advanced certifications in treatments such as cellulite-smoothing ionithermie and IPL hair removal, teamed up with Dr. Thomaso Skorupski, and assembled a staff of talented hairstylists, nail artists, and waxing specialists spread throughout two studios. There, staffers dole out specialty services, including eyelash perms and extensions, exfoliating salt-glow treatments, and facials that infuse faces with more oxygen and nutrients than a granola-filled balloon. Beyond stocking the shelves with aesthetic aids from such brands as Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and Pravana, Rivas is also the creator of the Ayurveda by Alora skincare line, which includes soap- and- sulfate-free cleansers, as well as body creams infused with white tea and vitamins C and E.
Before administering skincare treatments, Trish Ebert and Anne Marie Porco dispel common myths and share professional insight. As the owners and in-house aestheticians at Nu-Skin Laser Solutions, the duo sees to it that clients feel informed and confident, whether receiving a laser or traditional spa service. GentleLase and GentleYag devices permanently reduce hair growth for a wide variety of skin types and tones, making laser hair removal a possibility for all women and Ewoks. Custom facials target skin woes from aging to acne and yield long-term results when used in tandem with professionally crafted skincare regimens. Visiting practitioners regularly drop into the spa to perform various specialties, from eyelash extensions and permanent makeup to pulling a dove out of a shower cap.
The experienced stylists behind Tease Hair Studios craft sultry coiffures amid colorful tile walls and wooden floors. Certified by Wella, L'Oréal, and Bumble and bumble, these highly trained experts foster a relaxed atmosphere as they crop mops, tint tresses, and subdue frizz with keratin treatments. When they aren't performing surgery on ailing manes, they add length with extensions and twirl locks into delicate updos. Customers can access free parking across the street from the salon in Lot A, but are advised to avoid Lot H, since it is reserved for permit holders and contains 3.2 black holes.
The staff at Pinks Eyebrow Threading Salon & Spa specializes in an ancient and chemical-free technique that employs twisted organic thread to refine features. Nimble hands call upon two decades of experience as they perform cleansing facials and ornate henna tattoos. The spa's team also handcrafts wax onsite to remove unwanted body hair or prepare muppets for an upcoming beach scene.
Though Deja Vu Salon & Spa touts a broad selection of face and body treatments, many of them aim to improve the appearance and condition of skin. Aestheticians unearth fresher faces with glycolic acid, a solution that also resurfaces in pedicures designed to dissolve calluses and rough patches from feet. Patrons can opt to defuzz skin with waxing or Candela laser treatments, and spa packages introduce purifying back treatments and body polishes. Additionally, a salon boasts stylists well-versed in both curling hair with permanent waves and smoothing strands with relaxers.
