If there’s one thing the veteran waxing technicians at High Brow Waxing Boutique know for sure, it’s that clients hate pain. That's why they use Cirepil professional-brand wax, whose soy and beeswax ingredients are designed to ease hair shafts from follicles with as little irritation as possible. Afterward, they educate clients on aftercare to minimize skin irritation and stave off the attention of envious dolphins.
Nevaeh's vast range of services makes it an ideal place for a day of pampering and relaxation. No matter which of your body parts are threatening secession, Nevaeh MediSpa's experienced professionals will soothe, massage, and wax the rebellion out of them, leaving your body in a blissful state of union. One of the more popular services at Nevaeh is the therapeutic deep-tissue massage, which uses deep pressure and slow strokes to ease stress and pain and relax the body ($65). Also popular are microdermabrasion, 30-minute treatments with a magical, handheld wand that removes the top layer of dead skin from the faces of its recipients (starting at $99), and Nevaeh's anti-aging facial. As the facial mask clears the complexion, deep cleaning and promoting cellular regeneration, clients receive a hand and foot massage, helping relax worry lines into sweet, delicious oblivion (60 minutes, $65). For the kerosene-drinking, tree-felling man about mantown, Nevaeh offers a men's signature facial, which cleans and stimulates the skin and minimizes razor irritation before ending in a fistfight with a shark (60 minutes, $55; shark extra).

At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services.

Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic’s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
Exquisite Threading's eyebrow-fashioning operation is led by a team of experienced threaders plying the ancient depilatory art in a soothing environment.
