From sleek looks to fancy updos, the stylists at Elena's Beauty Salon transform hair into beautiful new styles. Keratin treatments eradicate frizz, infusing manes with keratin proteins for shinier, sleeker styles, whereas partial highlights add new dimension to strands with pops of color. The team of beauty experts also preps coifs for special events, such as weddings, with intricate updos or curls. In addition, the bilingual salon offers nailcare services.
Fernanda Rivarola takes care of clients from head to toe at Lanex Day Spa. She tends to skin's needs with a variety of facial services services, including chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and facials. The spa also provides a back treatment, which treats ingrown hairs and acne-prone skin below the neck. And Fernanda's waxing services remove unwanted fuzz from the forehead to the toes and just about everywhere in between.
Spray-tan formulas with organic sugar cane take bodies from pallid to bronzed in 20 minutes at The Tanning Paradise. In addition to tans, the staff aids patrons in head-to-toe transformations. They brighten nails during mani-pedis, scrub away dirt with facials, and wax off unwanted facial hair. Professional makeup artists add length to manes with hair extensions and prep clients for big nights with makeup applications.
Though much of their job involves expertly channeling sound waves, the staff members at Xtreme Medical Spa aren't musicians. In fact, the vibrations that their equipment produces aren't audible to the human ear. These ultrasonic waves are crucial to noninvasive cavitation treatments, which aim to reduce cellulite in areas such as the abdomen, waist, and buttocks. An applicator held against the treatment area sends the waves to break up fat cells, which are then metabolized naturally, a process that reduces the telltale dimpling of the skin.
The spa's other services, though varied, also can have rejuvenating effects. Body wraps, vibration therapy, and vacuum therapy complement cavitation appointments by further promoting the disappearance of cellulite deposits. Alternatively, specialty facials incorporate Pevonia products to cleanse pores and combat skincare concerns, such as rosacea, fine lines, and blemishes that refuse to disappear even after being told to do so out loud in every language.
Medical director Hugo Romeu and certified medical electrologist David Reyes form the power duo behind Prestige Laser Center, treating patients with advanced technologies that can clear up medical conditions and help achieve aesthetic goals. Laser hair-removal treatments ease or eliminate the growth of unwanted stubble, and spider veins similarly fade after a laser's attention.
The staff at Bijie Hair and Nail Salon may speak English and Spanish, but their work will elicit compliments in any language. Limp, lifeless manes settle near one of the crisp, white styling stations and arise a short time later with full, flip-able layers and soft curls, and strands prone to spiraling out of control can be calmed with a keratin treatment or smoothing blowout. Fingers and toes can unwind after a stressful day of typing, tap-dancing, or typing while tap-dancing with one of the salon’s mani-pedis, which include cuticle care, careful shaping, and a coat of color in the customer’s choice.
Founded by Dr. Ida Rolf, the Rolf Method of Structural Integration, or Rolfing, works the web of winding connective tissues (fascia) that envelope the body's organs, muscles, and inner-doodads. When stress, injury, and gravity yank the body out of alignment, the fascia, too, is disrupted, resulting in stiffness and loss of energy within the body that usually only comes from sitting through an awful poetry reading. Rolfing ditches the hitches in the body's giddyup through a systematic application of pressure on the body that lengthens and realigns the fascia.
