At Iris Nail Salon, trained techs spruce up digits with manicures and pedicures. Turn over hands to the authority of a nail guru, who spends 45 minutes on the gel manicure, tenderly clipping nails, curtailing cuticles, and blanketing tips in a choice of long-lasting OPI Axxium, CND Shellac, or Orly polishes. Clients can give all limbs equal treatment with the 70-minute manicure and pedicure. While technicians file, buff, and tattoo on a desired hue, hot stones keep feet from spreading gossip to the hands. Alternatively, the spa pedicure infuses feet with a rejuvenating scent—such as lemon tree, lavender, or peppermint—as a tech evicts callous patches and slathers feet in a mud mask in preparation for rain dancing.
When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
The savvy stylists at Tantra Hair Salon & Day Spa create accentuating coiffures with an arsenal of Paul Mitchel products and professional hair services. Patrons warm up by the fireplace and sip a complimentary beverage in the neutral-hued waiting area before lending head nests to a scissor-handed specialist, who snips off split ends, creates desired layers, and removes stray cockatiel feathers. A deep-conditioning treatment bolsters silky, smooth head fringe, and a final blow-dry seals in style. Additionally, patrons can brighten locks with partial highlights or thoroughly disguise manes from codependent hairbrushes with full highlights applied to each strand with a paintbrush dipped in a choice of acrylic hue.
While dealing with the stresses of raising two children into her 50s, Susan Forman began looking into the latest skin-rejuvenation technologies to keep her face looking fresh. Fascinated by what she found, she trained with a plastic surgeon in order to help her pursue her new calling as an aesthetician. At DaVinci Skin Care, her procedures keep skin looking youthful, with facials cleaning away oil, Botox injections smoothing out wrinkles, and intense-pulsed-light therapy evening out skin tone and making Pink Floyd listening parties way radder.
The licensed aestheticians at Eden Medical Spa have one goal: to make clients appear younger and feel more confident. To achieve this mission, they administer advanced laser and radio-frequency treatments that firm skin and release unwanted hairs' bristly clutches. Traditional treatments such as chemical peels, waxing, and massage cozy up alongside the more technological treatments to dissipate wrinkles, lighten blemishes, and untie tension.
