From chamomile cleansing lotion to honey-almond scrub, a fleet of botanical products find themselves the star at Olga’s Beauty Spa. Licensed aesthetician and manicurist Olga Gonzalez incorporates them into her facials, body wraps, and mani-pedis.

Like a cake, Napolitano Day Spa Salon is made up of layers, each as tempting as the last. At first glance, the Spa Salon appears to be a boutique. In its orange-walled entrance room, wooden tables and racks showcase clothing, accessories, and beauty products to a soundtrack of modern music. As clients journey past one of the center's two burbling fountains, they enter the salon space, where a team of stylists customizes hair with fashionable cuts and flattering colors. Farther back still, past the bustling stylist stations, is a haven of peace embodied by private spa-treatment rooms, soothing music, and a relaxation room filled with complimentary tea and flattering whispers.
Awarded Seattle Met's Best Facial of 2008, the spa refines visages with nine options that harness Dermalogica and Jan Marini products. Each one comes with a personalized routine for home care, an herbal foot soak with lavender and rosemary, and their signature recipe of non-invasive clinical therapies. Meanwhile, French seaweed, algae, and personalized aromatherapy lend body wraps and massages a touch of nourishment and help clients to prepare for dates with handsome lake monsters.
People don't need extravagant decorations and recordings of endlessly babbling brooks in order to relax. The only things necessary are skincare and spa treatments proven to yield results, and Elizabeth Beauty Spa recognizes this. That's why they wield equipment acquired from Italy and France to correct their clients' skin imperfections and contour curves with noninvasive services. Body-slimming technologies sculpt forms with infrared heat that helps the body release toxins or computerized equipment that sends massage-like sensations to contract muscles and gradually push lunch out of reach. Signature facials and microdermabrasion help fight signs of aging, sun damage, and blemishes, and Italy bio cell modulation restores skin with a hybrid of microcurrent and nonthermal light-based technology.
Before she became an esthetician, Kristine served as a model. Noticing the value of radiant skin, she took an interest in the field of aesthetics and enrolled at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics. Her studies cemented her passion for skincare, and deepened her knowledge of curative botanical ingredients. Whether coating faces in pumpkin-based enzymes or jack-o-lantern guts, Kristine improves skin the natural way—without the help of artificial compounds or harsh preservatives. To this end, she's allegiant to the Rhonda Allison product line, which largely consists of food- and plant-derived cleansers, lotions, and masks. Kristine integrates these products into various treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and waxes.
