New Image New Life Spa owner Ruth Cula renews complexions and brightens skin with sophisticated European techniques. The crystal- or diamond-point microdermabrasion sloughs off dead skin cells and fine lines to reveal younger cells underneath, boosting collagen production for fine lines as minimal as a computer’s code of ethics. The microdermabrasion also encourages greater product penetration, paving the way for a deep-cleansing express facial augmented by nourishing lotions to hydrate visages. Skin rejoices as oxygen therapy stimulates cellular renewal, helping to craft complexions as glowing as a hunk of magma at its first dance. Clients can relax as able massage therapists soothe muscle knots with heated stones during a 30-minute massage, detoxifying muscles and assuaging aches with gentle pressure and penetrating warmth. Wicker chairs rest on hardwood floors in the spa’s reception area, and accent furniture and flowers decorate the private treatment rooms.
New Image New Life Spa
Relaxation commences within seconds of stepping through the doors of New Image New Life Spa. Padded wicker chairs and colorful throw pillows invite guests to unwind as they await facials, bodywork sessions, or waxing among a full menu of services. Inside private treatment rooms, flowers and earth-tone walls summon nature's power to calm and comfort. Among the spa’s specialties, a lineup of soothing massages includes hot-stone therapy, whose gentle pressure and penetrating warmth assuages aches and helps detoxify muscles, and shiatsu, a Japanese technique designed to liberate trapped energy through gentle manipulation of acupressure points.
The spa's owner, Ruth Cula, also specializes in permanent-makeup application and European techniques for brightening skin, which she has honed over more than 28 years working one-on-one with clients. One standout is her oxygen therapy, which stimulates cellular renewal and helps make a complexion glow like a hunk of magma at its first dance. During microdermabrasion treatments, Ruth uses a diamond-point instrument to exfoliate dead skin cells, resulting in the minimization of fine lines. Ruth also continues to add to her suite of modern treatments by continuing to earn certificates and training in emerging skin therapies.
