At Sanctuary MedSpa the staff believes beauty starts at the skin. That's why all of its services—from Botox injections to laser hair removal to photofacials—are designed to beautify complexions and skin surfaces. For a more holistic route toward radiant skin, Sanctuary also offers nutritional services that warn against the dangers of washing your face with a cheeseburger.
Once they've entered Tropical Tanning, guests face a choice of three doors, but their decision shouldn't exactly be fraught with suspense—behind each door lies high-tech tanning beds with three levels of tanning pressure waiting to gild bodies to the tunes of a built-in radio or iPod docking station. Tanning associates help newcomers choose the right bed, and can also explain the benefits of the tanning creams that adorn the salon's faux tiki bar. Infrared-sauna treatments send beams of warming light into bodies, inducing the same raised heart rate as moderate exercise or really intense chewing. Murals of tropical sunsets, hammocks, and beaches adorn the salon's walls, and a life-size dashboard hula dancer waves goodbye on the way out.
Streaks Salon offers an array of body-burnishing techniques to leave clients feeling revamped and tranquil. An hour-long massage therapy session, which includes a 50-minute massage plus a 10-minute mini foot reflexology, employs gentle kneading to serenely evict the shiftless aches squatting in muscular mansions, leaving anatomies unburdened by knots and ready for another day of full-contact kite flying. Sun-seekers may opt for a session in the salon's top-quality VersaSpa spray-tanning system, which provides subtle coloring in a well-ventilated open-air booth. Efficient droplets cloak skin in a moisturizing spray before kissing it with a blissful golden glow, simultaneously fusing in the hue and sating thirsty flesh. Vivify your visage with a one-hour cleansing facial to leave masks vibrant and exfoliated, with an accompanying brow wax ($15) to renovate the roofs of sturdy eye-houses.
Éminence skincare products grown in the well-exfoliated fields of Hungary swathe dry and damaged dermises in an organic blend of face-saving sustenance. Pure Skin Botanica's staff uses the results of a personal skincare analysis to ensure that each facial is a customized creation, selecting the finest Éminence toners and moisturizers, designed to detoxify and oxygenate even sensitive skin. The one-hour facial pays exceptional attention to your skin’s needs and birthday wishes, as potions diluted with tea, fruit juice, or sparkling water replenish cheeks and foreheads with a burst of hydration. Made with organic ingredients, the unique facial creams reflect the soft colors of their fruit and veggie forebears and are just as edible, eliminating the need for a pre-facial snack. The facial concludes with a relaxing shoulder and neck massage that smoothly unties tense knots and reconfigures spinal joysticks to factory settings.
