Skin savant Stacy McClure tackles epidermal issues with her menu of facials, waxing, and tanning treatments. Hydrating masks unclog pores, gentle chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions buff away dead or damaged skin cells, and back facials detoxify and protect posterior-facing skin. Waxing sessions eradicate fuzz from the face and body with top-shelf waxes before calming lotions soothe freshly pruned skin. McClure’s head- to-toe airbrushing services enhance physiques with golden hues, and her lash-tinting procedures draw attention to faces easier than training butterflies to alight on cheekbones.
