Medspa 21's licensed aestheticians marry science and beauty to relieve clients suffering from untidy bodies and stressed souls with advanced spa treatments. Gentle hands cleanse smudges and iron wrinkles from delicate tissues during corrective and relaxing facials ($125), followed by a complimentary makeup application that accentuates features instead of connecting lines between pores to form the outline a barn owl. Soothed by numbing lotion, dermises uncover dolphin-smooth underarms, lips, or chins while bathing under gentle beams of light in 30-minute laser hair-removal sessions ($450 for a set of three). Patrons lay prone for an hour as the hot-stone massage ($135) reduces muscles to base, serene states garbed in a coat of moisturizing body butter. FDA-cleared VelaShape body-contouring sessions ($200 each) enlist the help of radiofrequencies, infrared light energy, and massage to smooth out bumpy cellulite that can congregate above hips, around thighs, or on residential streets. Guests stroll through Medspa 21's relaxing environment swaddled in cozy robes and sipping hot beverages, both of which escort bodies to complimentary massages after most treatments.
