Master aesthetician Maria Conde rarely encounters a pair of legs that she can't make as smooth as silk, or a pair of eyebrows that she can't shape into elegant arches. The hair-removal expert specializes in swift waxing and sugaring treatments for women as well as for men. But that's not all she offers at Maria Body Image Studio. Conde also cleanses pores with exfoliating facials and promotes detoxification with mineral body wraps. Her eyelash extensions add length and volume for weeks on end, staying in place until they fall out naturally or are plucked for an emergency wish.
The licensed aestheticians at Sugar Baby Wax call their method of hair removal "hydration waxing." This is meant to differ from regular waxing—which they deem too irritating—and its secret lies in hydrating skin with a special pre-waxing "sauce" prior to treatment. Next comes Sugar Baby Wax's signature "Candy Paste Wax," which actually contains many of the same ingredients found in all-natural candy. This formula is applied to the skin, and hair is lifted from the treatment area with less pain and stress than traditional waxing. A moisturizing anti-bacterial treatment rounds out the appointment, which is always carried out in conditions of extreme sanitation. The aestheticians never double-dip or use old waxes, whether they're removing hair from brows, bikini areas, legs, or bottoms of feet.
Whole Health Medical Center's acupuncture treatments are extremely versatile. Using just thin needles and a gentle touch, the team can address dozens of issues such as anxiety, arthritis, or seasonal affective disorder.

They administer other holistic treatments, including medical facials and massages. They also maintain green business practices, like using organic products free from harsh chemicals and destructive anti-matter.
Sue, the owner of Sunrise Hair Studio, brings 18 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair.

Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
