Employing advanced laser technology, the experienced nurses at Anti-Aging Centers of Connecticut safely and effectively eradicate unwanted hair. The center’s Candela lasers were sent back through time to terminate unsightly strands using tough yet gentle photons that harmlessly pass through the skin and directly impact hair follicles for long-lasting hairlessness. On women, technicians can evict pesky hair from such areas as the abs, bikini line, and pancreas, while men can choose to exile errant threads from the scalp, shoulders, and beneath their pinky toenails. Anti-Aging Centers of Connecticut has performed hundreds of treatments, and all of the facility’s lasers are calibrated for empathy and small talk to ensure client comfort.
If a still pond glimmering in the orange glow of a sunset could be translated into how a person feels, that's the kind of feeling salon owner Dawn Poindexter would want clients to have as they leave her salon. To achieve just such a sense of beauty and relaxation for her guests, expert stylists customize their services to each individual's needs, using use high-end products such as Goldwell for everything from styling and subtle highlights to more complex undertakings like smoothing hair with keratin or smoothing an astronaut's hair in a zero-gravity environment. Red Carpet Salon Services also offers a wide array of mani-pedis as well as a full menu of facials, waxing, and healing massages. Outside the salon, Dawn dedicates her time to the C.H.A.I.N. Fund—a charity devoted to treating cancer patients struggling with financial hardships.
Glam Spa’s trained technicians wield advanced treatments to stimulate collagen and smooth wrinkles, beautifying bodies and faces with minimal discomfort or downtime. During 45-minute Radiancy Therapy treatments, infrared light penetrates the upper layers of skin to stimulate deep collagen growth, which softens fine lines, decreases pore size, and homogenizes skin tone. Alternatively, in the signature facial, patrons undergo a thorough skin analysis before Glam Spa's skin savants exorcise blackheads, whiteheads, and demons from facial-scapes. A custom blended mask then nourishes vitamin-deficient visages, helping to restore faces marred by wrinkles or acne. While countenances soak, staff members knead the face, spine, and neck. Afterward, patients relax on one of the spa's plush massage beds as a muscle mender initiates a full body knead-fest, which targets areas troubled by chronic pain with specific acupressure techniques, leaving tendons as loose and relaxed as a rubber band in a steam room.
The staff members at C Salon & Spa take special care to ensure that all clients leave feeling refreshed and beautiful.

These range from soothing mud body wraps to 24-karat gold facials to waxing and vajazzling. No matter the service, though, they want guests to leave looking and feeling great, inside and out.
A certain hominess shines through at JoBella Salon and Spa. The shop is named for the co-owner’s children, Joe and Bella, and the Branford location is nestled inside a two-story house surrounded by trees and green grass. Skilled stylists and aestheticians at both locations tap into an arsenal of elixirs from Arrojo and skincare products by Aveda. When they aren't beautifying clients from the neck up, they primp nails, knead sinews, and leave legs wrapped in seaweed like a sleeping sushi chef.
A graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rachel Felson helms New Haven Rolfing, where she performs the specialized service in an effort to release built-up tensions and adhesions in clients of varying ages and backgrounds. During Rolfing sessions, Felson manually loosens connective tissue, or fascia, by kneading the labyrinthine network with her fingers, hands, and elbows. After roughly one hour of the holistic bodywork, visitors may notice an improvement in their health, observing higher levels of elasticity in their tissue and a greater feeling of balance on tightrope commutes to work. Among its myriad benefits, Rolfing boasts the ability to improve individuals’ posture, decrease anxiety levels, and amplify energy for long-distance pogo-stick marathons.
Rimagé's licensed body coddlers treat dermises to a mix of flowing touches and gentle exfoliation coupled with quality skincare products. A selection of massages features the Swedish techniques of pairing long, fluid strokes with an assortment of pressures to improve flexibility and muscle tone and release the tension of being caught making out with your reflection on the side of a lobster tank. Customers who choose a European facial transport pores across the pond to bathe in expertly applied natural ingredients. While a gentle mask or compress cleanses and refreshes visages, mild massages of the neck, face, and décolleté complete a full upper-body pampering, and all customers leave with a recommended care regimen to fool gullible skin into thinking it never left the spa.
