MC3 owner Mickey Coffino draws upon 28 years of salon experience to direct her crew of savvy aestheticians. During the deluxe pedicure, one of the staffers kick things off with soothing massage that migrates upward to knead away tension from ankles and calves. A nourishing mask then works to expel lactic acid from muscles in an effort to improve circulation, before an exfoliating salt scrub and loofa team up to rid feet of rough patches and sprouting Chia. During the signature facial, aestheticians target specific skin ailments, gently whisking away excess oil and dingy skin cells before enswathing the skin in a nourishing facial mask designed to seal in moisture and restore skin’s natural luminosity.
Trained massage therapists then lavish attention on overworked muscles by employing one of eight massage techniques. Firm pressure defines the deep-tissue massage, an ideal technique for victims of accumulated stress and repeated placement at the bottom of human pyramids. Smooth stones work to redirect off-kilter energy flow during the hot-stone massage, and the assisted stretches in the Thai massage work to lengthen tight limbs. During the whole process, organic aromatherapy and soothing massage oils foster a state of deep relaxation normally only achieved by listening to Yanni perform alongside a choir of whales.
MC3 Salon and Wellness Center
If you’re looking for variety, MC3 Salon and Wellness Center doesn’t disappoint with a service menu that reads like an encyclopedia of salon and spa treatments. Led by 28-year veteran Mickey Coffino, the salon’s stylists revitalize hair with everything from simple cuts to keratin straightening treatments. Not to be outdone, the spa’s nail technicians hydrate hands in warm paraffin wax and brush vibrant OPI polish across nails during manicures and pedicures.
As if that weren’t enough, the spa’s licensed aestheticians soothe and restore skin with nearly 20 services for the face and body. MC3’s services extend far beyond what you might expect from a traditional spa—there’s even a 20-minute teeth-whitening treatment that brightens teeth by up to 10 shades to attract strangers or blind unsuspecting enemies.
