Then a sugar-cane peel rounds out the treatment, imparting emoters with sweet, organic beauty. Finally, the one-hour microdermabrsion and sugar peel can be followed by LED light therapy, which is designed to penetrate mugs with healing rays to improve skin conditions and stimulate photosynthesis.

Clients can relax while enjoying light snacks and herbal tea in the lounge area after each service.
