The supervised students at Skin Alive, a skincare spa partnered with the Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, perfect the art of their future trade while lavishing troubled skin with high-end SkinCeutical products. During crystal microdermabrasion treatments, an experienced aesthetician pelts exteriors with micronized crystals that scare off dead skin cells, leaving plots with less discernable wrinkles or pore potholes. An exfoliation clean-up crew follows the crystal-tipped jet to brush away sloughed-off debris and sparkling dust like a janitor in a glitter factory. For additional face revamping, the bio-oxygen fusion’s cocktail of antioxidants and hyaluronic acid hydrates thirsty façades, and a stream of pure oxygen infuses skin to help combat fine lines.
Following a careful skin analysis, a highly trained specialist helps clients select one of the spa’s skin-specific facials. An enzyme mask accompanied by deep-penetrating steam works on visages, and an upper-body and facial massage chases away tension caused by earnest hand raising. As lower paws wave adieu to toxins with a pomegranate-and-rose exfoliating scrub, upper paws ditch age spots and dryness with the help of slathered-on alpha-hydroxy acids, a paraffin dip, and heated hand mitts. Toner and moisturizer seal off beaming mugs, and a moisturizing foot- and hand-and-arm massage soothes the shock absorbers of runners and circus performers forced to hold perpetual handstands.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
