Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.

The Neat Waxing Co. uproots bodily briar patches using European herbal waxing and depilation techniques. A gentle skin-spackling of talcum powder commences each treatment, readying clients for resident wax wizards’ deft wooden spatulas that gently displace excess fuzz without incurring irritation, root damage, or curses cast by vengeful members of extended follicular families. A Brazilian or bikini wax ably equips beachcombers with carefree summertime savvy ($22–$27), and a thorough leg waxing glams up gams from thigh to toe ($25–$43). Men looking to don backless business suits can pluck the shock from their shoulders ($10–$27), or exploit open collars more modishly when free of follicular frontispieces ($7–$17). The resulting smoothness may last up to four weeks, and ensuing waxes can eventually abate unwanted body hair to result in long-lasting softer surfaces.

Alcira Eimil?a certified medical electrologist and the owner of ANJ Permanent Hair Removal & Aesthetics?draws upon more than two decades of experience in the depilation business as she wrangles unsightly strands. The studio's LightSheer Duet laser terminates unwanted hair quickly using tough yet gentle photons that harmlessly pass through the skin and directly impact hair follicles. The treatment targets hair of any shade other than white, gray, or blond. Gents shouldn't feel left out?they can boost their suaveness by exiling errant hairs from the back, ears, and sideburns that frame their pinky toenails. For small areas and those rascally light-hued hairs, Eimil also offers electrolysis treatments that zap individual follicles with a small dose of electrical current.
