Pamper Me Skin Care’s epidermis experts combine elements of nature and modern technology to restore skin’s youthful allure. The spa’s menu of more than 25 facial treatments renews nose-and-cheek placeholders with natural ingredients—such as pineapple enzymes, goat's milk, and lavender oil—or fights signs of aging with DermaSound’s ultrasonic waves and LED light therapy. For especially troubled skin, aestheticians turn treatments up a notch with glycolic- and lactic-acid peels, whose deep exfoliation can whittle a rough-skinned alligator into a smooth dolphin. Pamper Me Skin Care’s team also employs products from its own skincare line, as well as Rhonda Allison and GlyMed Plus.
Aside from facial treatments, Sudatonic infrared body wraps slim down silhouettes, and waxing and IPL hair-removal sessions oust unwanted fuzz and improve the body’s aerodynamics for faster street-luge-to-work times. Guests can also indulge in all-day pampering packages or mix-and-match treatments for custom relaxation sessions.
Let Bellissima's savvy strand specialist Rachel trim and tinge tarnished head helmets with her expert scissor-wielding skills. Rachel consults with each client to find the perfect mane medium for expressing their inner style and takes the time to explain how they can recreate the looks with products at home. The hair colors used in tress-tinting treatments include special polymers that repair structural damage from the inside out. Finally, Rachel coaxes unruly head-tufts into a frizz-proof conditioning cage, in which they will be tamed into smoother, silkier, and shinier species.
Pino Milano, the owner and master stylist at Belvedere Salon and Spa, draws from 30 years of hairstyling experience to craft designer haircuts and imbue flattering color. A native of Italy, Pino brings a touch of European style to his salon, where an equally impressive roster of master stylists and aestheticians with training in Europe, New York, and Boston practice their respective fields of expertise. The salon experts call on formulas by Matrix, Moroccanoil, and Crew to forge elegant new hairstyles, and nail and skin specialists perform facials, waxing services, and luxurious mani-pedis with reflexology treatments and sea-salt scrubs.
Owners Alaina Trocano and Diane Mahoney aim to leave clients looking and smelling as good as the inside of Soma Day Spa. Set between the Wakefield MBTA station and serene Lake Quannapowitt, the warmly decorated space fills with the aromas of pumpkin, chocolate, shea butter, and other natural ingredients during indulgent facials and body treatments. But these services aren't just a feast for the senses or an inspiration for what kind of cookies to pick up on the way home. Aestheticians can also customize treatments to address skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, oiliness, or the effects of age.
The stylists at A & A Hair Boutique don’t rely on their wits alone to cut and color hair. They also receive professional training from such well-known brands as Bumble & Bumble, Redken, SoCap, and Oribe. All of this training comes in handy when it’s time to enhance their clients’ scalps with highlights, glaze treatments, and SoCap hair extensions. For evidence that the stylists are always at the cutting edge of their field, look no further than the sulfate-free keratin products and highly charged electrical sockets with which they straighten hair.
De Novo is as much a salon as a swank artist's loft. The recently-renovate space invites relaxation while guests await the expert snipping of De Novo's stylists, who transform tresses with products by Moroccanoil, American Crew, and Keune. But haircare is just a part of the salon's services. Guests may request a waxing session to nix unwanted hair, or a special occasion makeup session to transform a full-length mirror into a sophisticated dinner date.
