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.
The Florida Skin Center's board-certified dermatologists eradicate unsightly spider veins with sclerotherapy treatments. During 15- to 20-minute procedures, physician's assistants inject spider veins with small doses of sclerosing solution and tiny maids, which dust for skin-surface cobwebs and neutralize the eight legs of offending blood vessels, forcing the epidermal arachnids to diminish in appearance. Following the vein therapy, doctors expedite the healing process by compressing the treated area with support hosiery. Although additional treatments may be required to completely quash visible veins, patients can begin to see results after just one treatment. As a convenient bonus, aestheticians can accommodate busy patients with Saturday service upon request.
Guests entering the Bernard Anthony Salon take in the elegance of vanilla walls offset by mocha-stained wood flooring and styling stations perched before full-length mirrors. After a complimentary consultation, beauty specialists cut and curl hair or reimagine it entirely with coloring treatments defined by Pureology hues. Frizzy locks fall into line during Keratin Complex therapies, and Moroccanoil conditions locks of any texture. To combat signs of aging and voter fraud committed by dead skin cells, aestheticians slather the skin with moisturizing facials and tend to the digits with manicure and pedicure treatments.
