At Miss Faces Skin Care, the custom ingredients of a pore-cleansing European facial are unique to each recipient––however, the resulting feel-good sensations aren’t. That's because the spa whips up fresh batches of melt-in-your-chair relaxation with every visit. Teresa DiPaolo, a licensed esthetician in the Parker area for more than 15 years, uses a gentle wax imported from France to remove unwanted hair, and boosts outer allure with head-to-toe treatments such as exfoliating body polishes. Most of all, though, Teresa magnifies clients’ natural beauty with an array of facial treatments, which help erase wear and tear caused by aging, the weather, and volunteering as an assistant for William Tell impersonators.
Upon entering Shear Bella Salon and Spa, clients are met with clean, minimalist décor and a complimentary glass of wine or cup of coffee. After settling in, they are then greeted by owner Nichole Wiese and her team of hair designers and aestheticians, who collectively transform and pamper clients with body and hair services. Skin services cater to both men and women with six different kinds of cleansing facials and peels. Waxing treatments keep hairs from spreading too thick across arms, lips, brows, bikini zones, and defunct Wooly Willy games, and soothing massage-therapy sessions curb tension with hot-stone and aromatherapy techniques. Each service culminates in a complimentary makeup touchup.
During custom airbrush-tanning sessions, a quick first-visit consultation outlines guests' needs before Lifetime Tans' body bronzers spray a natural-looking glow onto epidermal canvases. Trained technicians armed with a handheld tanning system mist anatomies with even coats of custom bronzing potions to deepen the hue of paled complexions. For an additional fee, guests can bedazzle skin with an optional gold-leaf shimmer for a golden-brown finish that shines as brilliantly as a bonfire fueled by encyclopedias for up to three days.
A self-contained air-conditioning unit, extra large lounge, and canopy speakers are not the amenities of some luxury sailboat or private-beach cabana—they are just a few of the features found in Tanning Oasis's high-tech UV tanning beds. From the Silver Bullet with its extra facial lamps to the Montego Bay Viper with its wrap-around lights and teleportation option, the beds here are some of the most advanced in the bronzing biz. For those who prefer a different tanning option, the MagicTan spray-tan booth spritzes on an even glow in under 60 seconds that lasts up to a week.
From their home within Phenix Salon Suites, the aestheticians of Sunny Day Spa brighten and clear complexions with Image and Sanitas skincare products. Whether reeling from acne or frustrated by wrinkles, skin finds a form of relief best suited to its needs. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments help minimize the appearance of facial imperfections such as age spots, fine lines, sun damage, and blemishes, while anti-aging facials use microcurrent technology to help lift and tone sagging facial muscles. Once complexions are back to their radiant selves, the spa's aestheticians can fine tune features by waxing brows or by tinting lashes to complement skin tone or match a new pair of lime-green contact lenses.
The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. Injectables such as Botox do the same for the face by smoothing out wrinkles and cheek-pinches left over from overly affectionate aunts. Laser hair removal services and photo facials are also available.
