Esprés Nails and Spa’s massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, shiatsu, foot-massage or reiki techniques. Spagoers who choose the first option feel smooth, flowing strokes sweep over tense feet, relaxing tendons drawn taut after too many games of beach racquetball. 20-minute detoxifying ionic foot baths then soothe feet when negative ions dive into warm water and lie in wait under the waves to drag toxins out of toes.
At The Derma Spa of Toledo, owner Liandra Hernandez leads a staff of complexion-improving aestheticians. To infuse faces with renewed youth, the specialized team harnesses services that include everything from cranberry mask facials and microdermabrasions to signature facelift peels consisting of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and enzymes. But crows' feet, third ears, and other signs of aging aren't the only things the crew can remove. Aestheticians can also vanquish acne with specialized treatments and wax away unwanted hair.
At Refresh Center for Wellness & Cosmetic Therapy, there’s an on-staff specialist for almost every aesthetic need. Two registered nurses perform Botox and dermal-filler injections, and two Xtreme Lashes stylists apply extensions to peepers. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists and makeup artists, all of whom make use of green products free of parabens, artificial dyes, sulfates, and cooties. At the helm of the ship is Dr. Afser Shariff, a board-certified surgeon tasked with overseeing all noninvasive cosmetic procedures.
Owner Patrice White has spent more than 30 years clarifying complexions of all skin types and beautifying visages using the latest cosmetology techniques. She'll tailor her facial to accommodate your skin's various idiosyncrasies with anti-aging, acne-zapping, and exfoliating elements until your skin shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Patrice can also wax, tweeze, and trim eyebrows into an elegant arch, or give makeup apprentices an hour's worth of tips on colors, tools, and application techniques—significantly reducing the risk of being mistaken for an undead clown.
For more than two decades, cars have been emerging from Perretti's Auto Detailing gleaming with a like-showroom shine. The staff applies carnauba wax by hand, bestowing vehicles with a sheen that can last up to eight months and is impenetrable by squirt-gun attacks or razzberries from jealous neighbors. Rubout compound or correction cream can reduce the appearance of small marks and scratches, and the crew is careful to use only foam pads in order to prevent swirl marks. To match the like-new exterior, technicians can then move inside to clean and seal most surfaces, including cracks in leather upholstery.
