No brow, leg, upper lip, or underarm is too overgrown to be tamed by the hair-removal experts at Grace Beauty Spa. The aestheticians are as versed in waxing as they are in threading, an ancient technique that evicts unwanted strands using a single length of twisted thread to ensnare hairs in a delicate embrace. Beyond busting bristle all over the body, the spa also bolsters beauty with Dermalogica facials and microdermabrasion treatments that rely on diamond tips instead potentially irritating sprays of crystals or fire ants.
Indulgence is the theme at Natural Oasis Day Spa—whether aestheticians are performing facials with advanced Babor products or massaging away stress and last season's stomped grapes during thorough mani-pedis. Massages, meanwhile, ease tense muscles with broad, relaxing strokes, and gentle waxing and threading services clear out unwanted hair from across the body.
The technicians at Seasons Beauty & Spa offer a variety of soothing and beautifying experiences. Their services include body treatments such as Swedish massages, sugar scrubs, and foot massages, along with waxing, eyelash extensions, and facial treatments.
At Body Mantra, one piece of machinery is behind a majority of the centre’s cosmetic services—the LHE Laser. The staff guides its noninvasive and gentle beams to treat a range of skin woes, from unwanted hair and sharpie-drawn moustaches to age spots and spider veins.
For close to three decades, Nima—who specializes in clinical corrective facials—and the family members that help her operate her day spa have helped guests enhance the connection between their minds and bodies. This mission was further refined in recent years, when, after working long hours in the stressful, highly competitive beauty industry, the team knew it was time for a change from invasive surgeries and harsh chemicals. So, they set their sights on holistic body-beautifying treatments. Today, their menu of restorative services includes relaxing, organic sugar-scrub treatments and infrared body wraps designed to boost the metabolism with soothing thermal energy. Certified technicians also target stubborn fat cells with lipo-laser treatments or faradic-current sessions that, like doing the Running Man, simulate the effects of physical exercise.
The practitioners at Ojus Healthcare all hail from India, where they each earned bachelors' of ayurvedic medicine and surgery (BAMS) degrees. Ayurveda's holistic therapies date back more than 5,000 years and are drawn from ancient Indian holy texts, or Vedas.
Using diagnostic techniques developed long before blood tests or x-ray glasses, the specialists at Ojus examine their patients' eyes, tongue, skin, and pulse to determine their overall constitution during an initial consultation. If toxins seem to be weighing a person down, a five-part panchakarma detox may be recommended. This regimen includes internal and external cleansing by way of warm oil massaged into the skin, ingested, dripped up the nose, and applied over the eyes. A steam box draws impurities out through the sweat glands and soft dough is used to form oil reservoirs on especially troubled areas.
