Wall-to-wall pink surrounds clients at Exotic Nails, where technicians use a spectrum of OPI polishes to make nails just as vibrant as their surroundings. The salon augments its mani-pedis with indulgent scrubs, massages, and paraffin wax, and sees to other nail needs such as acrylic fills and repairing nails worn down from prodding too many belt sanders.
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.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
Afterglow Skin Therapy?s services bypass the need for surgery with high-quality products that tackle wrinkles, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation. Medical-grade VI chemical peels remove the damaged top most layers of skin, revealing new, glowing dermal layers. In addition to skincare, the staff wields a laser to remove unwanted body and facial hair.
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 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.
