To make sure they utilize the proper ?minence Organic Skin Care and Image Skincare products on clients' skin, the aestheticians at Spa Vita Bella have each client fill out a short intake form upon arrival, including any health concerns and the desired outcome of the service. To make the experience as relaxing as possible, guests are welcome to hot tea or cold beverages before heading to one of the private treatment rooms. Aestheticians then get to work smoothing away signs of aging or correcting skin issues such as acne, fine lines, and dryness. They also cocoon clients in slimming body wraps or administer massages. Outside of the spa, aestheticians pursue continuing education courses to ensure they're well-versed in the latest treatments and techniques.
Other services include massages, body wraps, waxing, sugar waxing, facials, pedicures, and eyelash extensions, to name a few. Clients can also head over to the spa's hypoallergenic infrared sauna for a relaxing treatment that heats the body from within to promote detoxification and slimming.
Many of the treatments at Sea Spa Steilacoom are enhanced by sweeping ocean views?and many of the products used at this boutique spa include ingredients harvested from Poseidon's garden. For example, nail techs use Phytomer's line of marine-based scrubs and masks to soften hands and feet, and salt crystals and algae oils exfoliate bodies from head to toe during sea scrub treatments. Seaweed promotes detoxification during facials better than a slap from an octopus tentacle, and botanical extracts enrich the massage oils used during bodywork sessions.
Northwest Skin Center & Medical Aesthetics beautifies skin with a suite of high-tech treatments delivered by a friendly, professional staff. During the Brazilian bikini laser hair-removal treatment, which normally takes 30 minutes or less, a Sciton Profile laser zaps hair with bursts of light, disabling fur-growing glands for confident swimsuit-wearing both at the beach and at the office. Though many patients report a mild stinging during treatment, the cooled hand piece helps alleviate discomfort as it defoliates epidermises. Most areas require three to six treatments to achieve completely fuzz-free skin, and this treatment may not be effective on dark skin types.
Saravidas Health & Wellness’ independent practitioners combine their holistic- and natural-healing talents to aid patients in need of relaxation.

Other members of the cadre of caretakers also treat clients with skin services, massage appointments, infrared-sauna sessions, and body-wrap treatments.
Lady Broussard Skincare nurtures patrons with treatments that blend traditional beauty rituals, such as European facials and microdermabrasion, with holistic therapies, such as stress-busting reflexology. Complimentary refreshments relax clients as beauty professionals revitalize skin with custom masks and exfoliating glycolic peels or christen the body with a pink-champagne scrub before painting on its new nautical name. Products from PCA, Bioelements, and the spa's own proprietary line power many of the skin-focused services, which are complemented by additional aesthetic enhancements, such as mink eyelash extensions and waxing for both face and body.
Serenity Spa and Natural Health Clinic's eco-friendly sanctuary wraps well-worn bodies in relaxing energy with an array of holistic healing treatments. The 60- to 90-minute acupuncture treatment strives to release tension and stress wedged, like squatting trolls, along the body's factory lines of energy. Designed to create a spacious tunnel for the chi (energy) to flow, fine needles are delicately inserted into critical pressure points along the physique, potentially helping to relieve allergies or treat autoimmune diseases and pulmonary disorders. Further bolstering relaxation, the 15- to 20-minute aromatherapy foot and head massage works to invigorate the senses with scented oils, soothing strokes, and an absence of heavy-metal music.
