Nail tailors at the posh Off Center Salon & Spa console neglected feet with luxurious pedicures and transform hands into mobile fashion accessories with long-lasting polish. Hybrid CND Shellac polish cures under UV light, creating 10 chip-resistant shields that rebuff palms' attempts to absorb fingers for up to two weeks. T-spa pedicures begin with a fragrant lavender salt soak, which softens soles for exfoliation through a three-step green-tea mask. After scrubbing away calluses by holding them against an even rougher foot, gentle hands dispel lingering tension with an aromatherapy hot-stone massage and deftly paint digits in Chanel hues.
Dedicated to wellness for the entire body, the professional and attentive staff provides a variety of services to soothe and smooth weary soul sacks. The signature facial is a customized treatment that targets fine lines and facial impurities, restoring a hardworking face to its default factory setting. It starts with a relaxing shoulder, arm, and hand massage before a trained aesthetician administers a deep cleansing, an exfoliation enzyme, steam and ozone treatments, and a replenishing mask. For a more assertive approach to restoration, the SkinCeuticals peel and microdermabrasion work in tandem to unclog pores, to reduce the appearances of fine lines and blemishes, to accelerate cell renewal, and to tighten and smooth your outer peel.
