Located right near the Pennsylvania-Delaware border, Devon Esthetique's skincare services are so customized they're not even listed on the website. That's because owner Devon Tucker-Kirk, whose own complexion has thrown her a few curveballs, knows firsthand how different everyone's skin is. Aestheticians analyze and diagnose skin types before consulting with clients to create a custom facial with medical- and pharmaceutical-grade products instead of leftover soy-sauce packets. Their aim differs slightly from the typical wellness center: aestheticians seek to provide results first and relaxation second, helping to send a clear message to acne and eczema. The earth-toned wellness studio also pops with colorful floral pillows, which cushion stainless steel, airless jet pedicure chairs as visitors have nails buffed and polished to a perfect sheen before accessing the complimentary healthy snack bar.
Voted best men's barber and salon by the readers of Delaware Today in 2012 and 2014, Studio One Eleven surrounds fellas in relaxing, masculine ambiance while polishing handsome exteriors. Haircuts, coloring services, and dandruff-fighting scalp treatments keep dapper Dans looking even dapperer, and waxing streamlines chests for pool season or removes chest-clinging koalas for sweltering summer months. Spa services such as massages and facials melt away stress while keeping skin supple with essential oils and moisturizing emollients. The studio's focus on luxury extends beyond specific services, with complimentary chair massages during every visit, free hairdo touchups between scheduled visits, and an onsite putting green to practice shots while waiting for appointments.
Osteopathic Dr. Jeffrey Kerner and his medical aesthetician/medical laser technician Terri Kerner have an array of certifications and years of experience aimed toward both beautifying and improving the health of their clients. To promote healing they offer massages, herbal body wraps, and aromatic facials in attempts to improve clients' physical and mental well being. They also offer laser services for laser-hair removal and Laser Genesis to treat acne scaring, fine lines and wrinkles and redness reduction in the skin. Via Medical Day Spa carries the best in skin care products including Yonka , Glominerals and GloTherapeutics.
Heated cloths dipped in a blend of essential oils enhance the healing herbal therapy as specialized massage techniques to eradicate muscle tension and melt stress. That's just one of the modalities at A Magical Escape, where massage therapists relieve physical pain and stress as skilled aestheticians replenish and heal skin with facials. The menu of body treatments also includes wraps designed to detoxify, moisturize, or tighten skin. Anti-aging LED light therapy boosts collagen and elastin production to erase blemishes formed on faces and permanent records.
With more than 100 years of combined experience, The Massage Center's licensed therapists have all the necessary know-how to trounce tension. Choose from 25 traditional and modern massages, including specialties such as Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. During a Bamboo Fusion session ($70), tendon tuners roll smooth, heated bamboo over bodies in steady strokes. Alternatively, the hot stone massage ($110) employs warmed river-skippers that float across the surface of muscles to thaw out knots and aches while soothing body and spirit. Tropical murals and autumnal vistas fill the walls of The Massage Center's 10 serene rooms to ensure massagees leave in a newfound state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since they got their braces removed.
By transforming homes into relaxing retreats, The Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa adds even more comfort to familiarity. Their staff of certified technicians travels to clients with all of the fixings of a luxury day spa in tow, including massage tables, manicure stations, and products made from fresh botanicals. They also bring the ambiance?soft music and aromatherapy set a calming mood as candles cast flickering shadows, and custom product blends release enticing scents such as chocolate or spiced apples. For certain packages, employees even provide plush robes and a complimentary bottle of wine.
Once they've converted the room into a soothing sanctuary, they treat groups to a variety of packaged services. The Pamper Perfect Mani & Pedi Package covers a signature mani-pedi as well as a hand and foot massage for each guest. Alternatively, the Pamper Perfect Princess Package gears the experience toward a younger crowd?6- to 12-year-olds?with mini mani-pedis and pizza, rather than a massage that therapists administer around backpacks. The mobile spa scales its services so that patrons can plan most any event, from large-scale parties to romantic dates.
