At Tamara Spa, named one of the best spas in Detroit by Hour Detroit in 2010, the licensed staff has saved jeopardized digits and parched pores from cosmetic cataclysm with in-depth treatments for 30 years. During the Shellac spa manicure, a skilled nail tech douses downtrodden extremities in an aromatic pomegranate scrub and lotion to slough off tired cells and infuse skin with moisture, leaving hands as soft and smooth as a bunny in a silk bathrobe. A soothing hand massage unkinks tense tendons before techs shape finger shields and dress them with a coat of CND Shellac, a durable chip-free gel that adds shine and strengthens nails to ensure safer ascents up oversize scratching posts.
Alternately, patrons reduce epidermal drooping with Tamara Spa's skin-tightening laser treatment, which utilizes GentleYAG’s cool, long-pulse beams to stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and firm faces. The versatile GentleYAG Laser can also whisk away extraneous body forests by targeting hair follicles on the underarms, the bikini area, or any area on the face, resulting in smooth skin and faster trips down the slip 'n slide. In addition to these areas, Groupon holders can get half off the price of laser hair removal for any second area as well as an upgrade to a Brazilian bikini hair removal for an extra $35, a half leg for an additional $75, or a full back for an extra $100. Laser treatments with the GentleYAG require no downtime and are effective for all skin types.
