A dedication to meticulous skincare and a bevy of spa services impress clients at Westmont's newly renovated Clear Skin Day Spa, where trained technicians wield products by renowned brands such as Isolaz to rejuvenate countenances. More than a dozen facials address individual needs with the aid of customizable formulas from Bioelements. Med-spa treatments employ advanced microdermabrasion and 3-D laser hair-removal technologies, and traditional mehndi services decorate the skin with henna in traditional paisley, flower, and sheep patterns.
The specialists at Tranquil Passage Spa blend eastern traditions, advanced cosmetic technologies, and French skincare in an environment designed to relax as it beautifies. Crystal therapy, sound therapy, and meditation soothe busy brains, while meditation and Ayurveda programs designed to connect the mind and body form a foundation for holistic health. Tranquil Passage stocks Parisian skincare products by Guinot, which customers can enjoy during facials or purchase and take home to share with the Gérard Depardieu clone they’re growing in the basement.
Even though it is the largest organ of the body, the skin often gets taken for granted. The aestheticians at Serenity Spa Boutique aim to remedy that fact, devoting most of their service menu to smoothing, depilating, and nourishing clients’ unsung surfaces. The spa's signature facials are the cornerstone of its treatment plan, incorporating microdermabrasion, glycolic peels, and soothing creams to soften lines and replenish moisture to flaky skin. Once skin is silky and taut, aestheticians can remove unwanted hair with waxing treatments or soften the tissues underneath with relaxing massages.
Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
Licensed aesthetician Christina Marie has tracked the trends of the skincare industry for more than 20 years, watching techniques that work become refined and perfected while those that don’t become obsolete. Her enthusiasm for up-to-date practices is the driving force behind her spa; it's also what enables her to best correct dermal issues ranging from acne to sagging skin. Before crafting facials from such ingredients as flax, vitamin C, and Bioelements skin products, Christina conducts a personalized skin reading, in which she and the client discuss possible treatment options and nicknames for the client’s freckles.
