The research staff at 7E?a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations?designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa?s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
Light doesn't just tan skin at Soleil Tanning and Boutique—it also heals. That's because in addition to a lineup of lie-down and stand-up UV-tanning beds, the salon is also home to a red-light-therapy booth. This booth sends waves of infrared light into the skin in an effort to boost circulation, which has the effect of not only diminishing fine lines and calming acne outbreaks, but also relieving joint inflammation and other forms of chronic and acute pain. The salon provides eye protection to clients who need it, and, because tanning lotions, like people taking too long in the gas-station snack shop, are easy to leave behind, it allows patrons to store their supplies there.
At Blush Permanent Makeup, Michele Konitzer pursues a personal passion for highlighting each client’s natural beauty. Her steady hands amplify facial features with the gentle SofTap method, a skill she also shows off while working as a trainer for the company. After she dots the epidermis with the ultradurable pigment, bolder lashes can better fan the flames of desire, and shaded brows can alternate between arching elegantly and compulsively communicating the "M" in Morse code. Michele also flexes her varied cosmetic expertise as she performs teeth-whitening treatments and hangs full, flirty faux lashes over both eyelids in 40 minutes.
Tending to glamour seekers with friendly, personalized service, the staff at Elements Salon spruces skin and coifs hair with a full spread of aesthetic treatments. Rein in messy manes with a customized haircut, which tames dos through a bag of hair-caring tricks including a scalp massage, blow-dry and style, and complimentary bang and neck trim in between visits ($40+ for women, $30+ for men). Perms ($75+) and full highlights ($100+) rework tresses for longer-term styles, and manicures ($25) and pedicures ($45) rehab nails after bouts of Miss Mary Mack with concrete lawn sculptures. Opt for a hot-rock massage ($40/half hour, $75/one hour) to release tension, or a custom facial ($65–$95) to brighten your countenance with a complimentary skin analysis, skincare treatment, and home-care maintenance consultation.
Relaxed sighs ride a wave of gentle scents from Alchemista, where staff draws upon the therapeutic properties of essential oils and handmade organic products. The Fall Harvest aromatherapy body buff tickles noses and seduces the senses with spices reminiscent of carving pumpkins, raking leaves, and harvesting bountiful crops of scarecrows. The body buff scrubs away dead skin cells and hydrates the healthy layer underneath, revealing a glowing, even-toned façade. The blue-corn body treatment combines seasonal corn and sugarcane extracts to soften skin sheathes like an apology note from reformed UV rays. A full-body hot-stone massage from a licensed therapist augments the blue-corn treatment with soothing pressure and aromatherapy. The massage alleviates muscle tension, stimulates circulation, and tests geological knowledge with the gentle warmth of heated rocks.
Tantastic's advanced equipment and extensive selection of lotions help clients build their ideal shade. The standup Sundome booth bronzes limbs without ever touching them, and the traditional Starpower bed has clients in and out in 12 minutes. Spray-tan technicians also stand ready to gild bodies a custom hue in a matter of minutes.
Clients can select one of Tantastic’s various lotions, including those from Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold, or have staffers custom order lotion to ensure they get the best product for their skin. Convenient lotion-storage space eliminates the need for clients to carry their lotions to and from the salon or conceal them in a hole in a nearby lawn.
