Armed with over a combined 25 years of airbrushing experience, Celebrity Skin's staff flawlessly mists skin with a natural, organic tanning spray. The team enlists the skin-coloring power of nontoxic sugars derived from plants such as sugar beets and sugar cane to expertly darken skin with a natural-looking shade of bronze that lasts for 7?10 days. Applied by hand, the mist sheathes clients from head to toe in as little as 25 minutes, or simply enunciates the legs, upper body, or face. The salon also bequeaths clients with pre- and posttan treatments to balance the skin?s natural pH and retain moisture and newly acquired color. The techs can tote their airbrushing equipment to residences for at-home tanning or to national monuments for bronze-statue touchups. Celebrity Skin also offers spa services including lash extensions and waxing.
Erica Trojan is on the receiving end of many glowing testimonials. "Whenever somebody says that I have great skin, I credit Original Skin and Erica Trojan," declares one happy customer. "My skin looks better now than ever," says a client of 12 years. Another just states succinctly, "I would sacrifice many things, but I would never give up Erica."
The reasons for all of the praise: Erica's medical knowledge coupled with her attention to proper skincare and her warm, approachable demeanor. The licensed medical aesthetician combines experience working with plastic surgeons with her know-how of non-invasive advanced technologies and nutrition and wellness to rejuvenate skin, face, and neck and infuse clients with a glow previously only achieved by swallowing LED lights.
Erica rids clients of dead skin cells during papaya enzyme peels, exfoliates and stimulates collagen production with dermaplaning, and strengthens facial muscles during diamond medi-lift sessions. She also arms clients with nutritional tidbits aimed to keep their skin healthy and illuminated.

A bubbling bath soothes feet as a precursor to the pedicures at Spa Nail City. Clients recline in plush, clay-colored seats, plunging their feet into warm water before a technician grooms their toes. Zebra-patterned chairs punctuate the row of manicure stations, where nail artists lend a glossy tone to fingernails. They add a splash of color with essie traditional or gel polish?or CND Shellac polish, which resists chips so clients don't have to protect their manicures with gloves made from PVC.
