For more than 25 years, Cynthia Rager has been pioneering new techniques and products in the fields of aesthetics and cosmetic surgery, penning technical manuals and spreading the know-how to up-and-coming cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists across the country. Cynthia has joined forces with biochemists to formulate skincare and makeup lines, including IntegraDerm and Miner?le makeup, whose natural and organic ingredients make them a favorite on the Home Shopping Network and in upscale catalogues.
Cynthia's mission at Rager's IntegraLife Spa is to share all that she has learned with her team while mentoring other women in the medical aesthetics industry. She seeks out cutting-edge treatments for the face and body, including light therapy, cellulite reduction, and seasonal body wraps in a zero-gravity float bed, which leave clients as relaxed as an astronaut.
Taylor Strauss mastered the art of aesthetics, focusing her skills on becoming a facial specialist. At Skin Care by Taylor, she keeps her attention on rejuvenating complexions using classic European facials and masks infused with fruit acids and mud. Taylor also excels in more advanced services, such as diamond dermabrasion and dermaplaning, both of which exfoliate away the top layer of skin and unclog pores. Strauss is also trained in reflexology?which she uses to help relieve clients' tired soles?and body wraps designed to detoxify and moisturize. Eyelash extensions round out her menu of services.
The staff at Natalie's Skin Solutions helps clients achieve glowing, blemish-free skin with state-of-the-art medical tools and treatments that are effective on all skin types. Alma Soprano XL laser technology rids clients of unwanted body hair, and skin-tightening treatments firm loose or sagging skin. The staff also imparts at-home plans to educate clients and helps them sustain the results of their treatments long after they've left the studio.
Escape Salon & Spa's skilled stylists indulge digits and deftly manipulate manes within their relaxing studio. During the pampering 90-minute mani-pedi, a talon technician trims, files, and buffs nail beds, polishing them to ensure smooth confidence while sporting sandals or glovelettes. Clients can customize coiffures with a personalized haircut and single-process color. A style guru shampoos, shears, and shapes tresses, shading head hedges to each client's preferred crayon color. Escape's ambient interior and plush styling chairs embrace clients amidst sleek wood floors and warm, golden walls.
At Cypress Beauty & Co., trained technicians wield files, clippers, and brushes in the pursuit of polished nails and peace of mind. During the 60- to 90-minute experience, a nail guru takes guardianship of hands and feet at a super-sanitized station, clipping and filing nails into perfect crescents and curtailing cuticles to expand keratin canvases. A coat of OPI polish in the desired color leaves nails as strong and sparkling as 10 diamond-encrusted box turtles. Both locations usher prettifiers in with sunny hues and glitzy displays of the 50 brands of beauty products they stock. Patrons can upgrade to french polish ($5 for mani; $10 for pedi) and add a sea extract marine-cooling mask ($10) or a complimentary round of applause.
