Better Health Tanning and Nail Spa is a full-service spa and faux-sun space that offers a generous range of face-oriented services designed to beautify a variety of skin types. The glycolic peel, made of natural fruit acid, refines texture and tone; this treatment is ideal for those with acne or sun-damaged skin. The vitamin C peel, which is not recommended for sensitive skin, removes the top layer of epidermis in a thorough manner, which, in turn, lowers the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, and rogue colorforms. Unlike conventional microdermabrasion treatment, which typically involves ousting the upper layer of skin by blasting a spray of tiny crystals, the diamond-tipped microdermabrasion makes use of a single, face-friendly suction tip studded with thousands of miniscule diamonds. This design negates the need for a potentially harmful blast, which leaves the face feeling silky smooth and well equipped for the shifting seasons.
