Heady aromatherapy scents fill the air within Pretty Faces Skincare Studio’s intimate and inviting spa suite. The appointment-only studio allows guests to fully indulge in their pampering desires, from facials and peels at the hands of licensed aestheticians to laser treatments, waxes, and massages. The skin-savvy team uses professional, medical-grade products during services, eschewing antiquated means of exfoliating facial skin, such as rubbing cheeks against an old oak tree.
Lidia Mosquera, the medical aesthetician behind Med Therapeutic Skin Care Day Spa, believes that her education never stops. Though she's been in the industry for more than 25 years, she still commits herself to staying on top of the latest beauty practices and procedures, even traveling to learn about breakthroughs made outside of the U.S. or in the galley of a Boeing Dreamliner. At her day spa, she offers massages, body wraps, laser hair removal, facials, and other services that showcase her cutting edge expertise. Her microcurrent, endermologie, and cavitation treatments help contour cellulite in problem areas, and her staff also enhance massages with aromas of sage and tequila that impart the natural healing effects of the agave plant.
Corrective Skin Care operates with the philosophy that the skin can be a indicator for a person's overall health. With that in mind, the studio aims for a holistic approach to skin care that involves diet, facial treatments, holistic and homeopathic supplements, and natural-yet-powerful topical products. Licensed aesthetician Jacynth R. Hall helps her clients to achieve dramatic skincare results with microdermabrasion, fruit acid peels, and anti-aging treatments, along with a host of other services. Come in for a deep pore cleansing and acne treatment, or have a youth-enhancing light therapy session that comes with an included peel to reduce the appearance of fine lines and grocery lists written on your forehead.
The licensed stylists and aestheticians at Beauty Secret Salon may have a few trade secrets up their sleeves, but there's one thing they never try to hide: their clients' natural beauty. They merely emphasize features that are already stunning with fashion-forward haircuts, keratin straightening treatments, and spa services that include facials, mani-pedis, and eyebrow threading. Clients regularly stop in to have their legs waxed, only to stay and get a henna tattoo of a floral design or a particularly complex home address.
Ruby Beauty Center lends Eastern flair to salon and spa services that beautify hands, feet, hair, and skin. Henna imbues manes with rich auburn tones ($25+) or, during mendhi sessions, dapples hands with intricate designs of flowers, leaves, and bar-exam answers ($7+ per hand). Staffers daub away unwelcome whiskers from underarms with powerful wax ($7) or gently twist free visage vines with threading ($20 for full face). A thermo herb facial ($55) undoes the effects of tense muscles and gorgon-staring contests by evacuating pores with warmth and salving skin with botanical ingredients.
