If makeup artist Mel J. had a signature look, it would be flawless skin. All her clients look airbrushed after a session in her chair. It helps that before applying any makeup to the face, she cleanses, tones skin, and hydrates skin, ensuring that she has a clean, smooth canvas to work with. Once skin is luminous, Mel smokes out eyes and paints lips with bright lipsticks or creates a more natural look.

The specialists at Skyn Clinic and Apothecary take a French approach to fostering clear complexions, meaning they place a big emphasis on proper skincare in the long run and don't perform services that provide only a quick fix. Botanical and essential-oil-based ingredients furnish services and products, including the spa's own custom skincare line, Skyn Clinic Custom Blends. Skyn Clinic uses only silk eyelash extensions and cruelty-free mink eyelash extensions harvested by carefully brushing minks for their loose hairs. A highly trained medical aesthetician applies extensions lash by lash and uses a soft collagen pad to protect the bottom lashes, specialized glue to adhere each strand to an original lash, and two tweezers in case one pair gets stage fright. Each semipermanent extension can last up to two months with regular showering, swimming, and exercising. Skyn Clinic medical aestheticians also provide full-body waxing, Viora cellulite reduction, fat reduction treatments, and skin tightening, as well as Xtreme facial and nonsurgical facelifts.
