Owner LaZaundra draws from more than 20 years of experience in the beauty industry to turn frazzled locks into straight, sleek dos. She treats clients to Brazilian blowouts that smooth out frizz and soften locks, and she also provides nailcare services.
Expert eyes at Natural Glow Skin Treatment Spa peer at the surface of each guest's face, ready to launch a full-scale attack on the problem at hand, be it dry skin, signs of aging, or acne. They analyze the skin surfaces before making decisions. They brandish their weapons, Dermalogica and Satin Smooth products, before performing services such as facials, back treatments, facial waxing, or body wraps.
The licensed staff at Regency Healing Medical Clinic combats wrinkles, acne, and other skin ailments for all skin types with the noninvasive HydraFacial treatment. Aestheticians cleanse facial expanses before buffing away roughened skin with a combination of exfoliation, moisturizers, and motivational shots of Mount Rushmore's complexions. The hydradermabrasion treatment then evicts the oil and specks that mar complexions with a set of extractions before sealing in skin's glow with a layer of protective hydration. Treating common skin ailments such as wrinkles, acne, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, the serum-based resurfacing leaves complexions clear and bright without resorting to invasive procedures, such as Christmas light implants. Patrons leave the 30-minute skin pick-me-up ready to immediately flaunt smooth faces without any downtime.
Luanne Green and the team at Permanent Makeup Artistry and Restoration Massage work to help beauty stand the test of time by offering a range of permanent and semipermanent cosmetic procedures. They imbue faces with lasting beauty during permanent-makeup appointments, as well as airbrush-makeup sessions that apply cosmetics via a fine mist. Luanne and her team work with myriad shades, and allow clients to custom-blend their own colors for looks that are as personalized as monogrammed bathrobes. The staffers can also remove unwanted tattoos with saline or fade products, or reduce the appearance of scars with micropigmentation color camouflage or dermarolling.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Ultra Tan beckons bronzers into a spray of UV rays and natural sunless solutions. A one-month membership unlocks unlimited access to beginner-friendly level-one beds, faster level-two beds that may include facial tanners, and high-powered level-three beds that leave pelts as tawny as a caramel-dipped camel. Alternatively, stay cool while acquiring a sunny glow with a custom airbrush tan. Naturally derived ingredients infuse skin with a precisely chosen shade through a gentle Norvell misting system that seals in color for up to 10 days.
Anyone who works in art restoration can tell you that to do a good job, you have to consider the piece as a whole. The aestheticians and massage therapists at Skin and Body Solutions Day Spa have the same philosophy, which is why their menu extends past facials to include body wraps, massages, and even airbrush tanning. The express facial quickly cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a custom rubberizing mask finishes perfecting with toning and hydration. Clients in the mood for heavy-duty restoration can opt for the Whole ShaBang—an 85-minute facial that includes deep cleansing, a yogurt peel, an oxygen wrap, and a seaweed mask before finishing with fireworks, flying doves, and a standing ovation. Full-body waxing services remove unwanted hair obscuring facial features, and airbrush tanning imparts a golden-brown hue. Massage services disentangle muscle knots and include a paraffin foot wrap.
