Helmed by Danielle Decanti, an [aesthetician](http://www.helleseattle.com/angels.php) versed in Chinese, ayurvedic, and Western beauty rituals, Helle boasts a service [menu](http://www.helleseattle.com/menu.php) that spoils skin with indulgent face and waxing treatments. Visage virtuosos absolve sinful complexions with an Angel Face facial, which anoints skin with a custom selection of Dermalogica products throughout a 60-minute epidermal exorcism. A warm cloak of steam and a correctly entered CAPTCHA allows admittance into pores for exfoliations and extractions before frontispieces mellow out under a creamy mask, lymphatic drainage, and a pressure-point scalp massage. During the Dead Sea salt glow body scrub, seasoned skin savants send circulation spinning on all cylinders with a complete corporal buffing. The scrub begins with a dry dermal brushing that drains lymph-node liquids before a skin-scouring salt scrub infuses surfaces with essential oils tailored to each client's skincare needs. Treatments conclude with steamed towels and an aromatic oil application that pleasures olfactory outlets without burdening fingers with scratch-and-sniff stickers. After services, clients take home a bundle of homespun products, which may include the Dead Sea salt scrub, rosewater facial tonic, exfoliating soaps, or body butters.
A spread of custom spa and salon services foster aesthetic peace in a relaxed, homey setting. Skincare treatments are tailored with Dermalogica's brand of highly customizable products and special salves made in-house to prevent curfew violations. Drawing on Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicine systems, the beauty therapists diagnose conditions such as poor circulation and dehydration, which can inform single treatments or a six-week regime to reset skin function. Paul Mitchell and Awapuhi Ginger products help stylists wrangle unruly halos in an intimate salon room with baroque gold mirrors and pink-on-pink stripes. Each treatment is given a heavenly name to emphasize Helle's good and evil theme, which is echoed in the spa's crimson paint job and matching velvet tufted couch.
