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.
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.
