European-trained owner and biochemist Doina Mandrila and her team of aestheticians perform soothing spa services inspired by international beauty traditions. The Orient Essence Ceremony incorporates smooth Balinese pebbles and exotic oils into a relaxing massage, and the full-body hydration of the Velvet Skin Miracle mimics the thermal springs of the city of Spa in Belgium. The spa’s luxurious facials slather skin in natural ingredients, such as dandelion and moisturizing honey. Staff also specialize in gentlemen's facials and treatments formulated specifically for teenage skin issues, such as acne. Waxing services customize or banish body hair, while massage therapy leaves bodies in a state more relaxed than if Mr. Rogers governed Hawaii.
The Skin Clinic's microdermabrasion facial exfoliates away the signs of aging, unearthing fresh layers of skin and leaving faces smooth, soft, and glowing with youth. Deputize a licensed aesthetician to evict lackluster skin cells with a microdermabrasion treatment, which abrades away dead skin, rough texture, and dullness with a stream of microcrystalline particles. The deep exfoliation polishes away fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scarring, and shrinks large pores. Unlike fermenting dinosaurs to increase the petroleum supply, the painless procedure produces results immediately.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
Nichole Soares, the owner of Salon de Nichole, views every head as a canvas and every hairdo as an artistic statement of beauty. She and her team style hair with that view in mind, trimming bangs, sides, and tops, carefully adding texture, and signing off with ribbons of color. Harnessing the power of Keratin Complex, they train locks to fall smoothly around the face without frizzing out or forming the highly offensive words "comb me." They offer services that fall outside the scope of hairstyling, too—waxing, for example, as well as facials, massage therapy, and beauty services for bridal parties.
The nail technicians at Hair It Is pamper fingers and toes with relaxing manicures and pedicures. Each 30-minute stand-alone mani commences with a hand soak, then pushes back cuticles once they've softened and let down their guard. Files whittle nails into shapely ovals, squares, or rhombuses, and a lotion-laden massage hydrates thirsty wrists, palms, and knuckles. A fresh coat of polish gives fingertips a stylish new hue to match favorite outfits, a new car, or pet betta fish. A luxurious 90-minute mani-pedi combo applies the same treatments above to both mitten and sock residents, in addition to applying a soothing warming mask before the lacquer application.
