The name Le Cocon was inspired by the French phrasing of 'the cocoon.' And this unique name is homage to the renewed outlook on life that a makeover brings, as well as the soothing sense of seclusion a caterpillar feels before it metamorphoses into a hurried stockbroker. Inside the spa's walls, clients receive facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and other cosmetic services such as waxing in an effort to bring about that type of transformation. The spa treatments use products from Rhonda Allison Skin Care to help combat dermal ailments that range from wrinkles to acne.
The three licensed estheticians at Le Cocoon are Theresa Danzer, Becca Larson, and Amanda Babino. Generally, their appointments begin with a skin analysis and consultation to help them understand each client's individual complexion worries. This mix of sympathy and skill fuels their desire to invent custom regimens from the sanctum-like setting of Le Cocon.

Facials improve complexions with Aveda techniques, and natural baking-soda crystals provide gentle microdermabrasion.
