Combining more than 20 years of people-pampering experience with innovative Dermalogica products, Skin Essence approaches professional skincare and other dazzling cosmetic services with a holistic focus on health and relaxation. Revitalize wizened visages with the Diamond Peel system, a microdermabrasion treatment that employs a non-heat- and inflammation-creating diamond tip designed to exfoliate the topmost layer of skin in hopes of revealing the baby skin sleeping peacefully beneath. Diamond Peel treatment is recommended for treating enlarged pores, mild acne, and other common skin maladies, and Skin Essence recommends six treatments for optimal, lasting results.
Tarnished toe armor can reclaim its dragon-slaying sheen with one of two polishing options. The peppermint pedicure strives to clean, exfoliate, and hydrate with a concoction of rich emollients, fruit extracts, nourishing butters, and cool-inducing peppermint essential oils, while the chocolate pedicure utilizes cocoa-centric elixirs such as a hazelnut exfoliating scrub and chocolate foot mask to revitalize exhausted dogs. The chocolate pedicure includes a massage, and both confection-cocooning procedures culminate with the customer's choice of polish or hard-shell chocolate syrup. All pedicures are administered in a chair that uses activated oxygen to vaporize foot-threatening maladies such as bacteria, fungus, parasites, and revenge-seeking banana peels.
Skin Essence wraps its guests in opulence, exuding regality with classical archways, elegant draping, and ornate lighting fixtures. Warm earth tones placate eyeballs overworked by Magic-Eye puzzles, and sand-colored tiling provides a comfortable ambience for crustaceans looking to shed their shell. Upgrades are available for an additional fee.
