The Face Place’s skilled nails tech and aestheticians look after clients’ digits and faces with pampering treatments enhanced by the soothing influence of feng shui throughout the elegant space. During the spa deluxe manicure, nail artists soak hands in skin-calming lotions before applying a pair of thermal gloves that gently massage clients’ pressure points and thaw icicles hiding under fingernails. After hydrating parched hands with a bonus paraffin wax dip, the tech meticulously grooms cuticles and nails and tops off digits with a chip-resistant coating of vibrant OPI polish. Meanwhile, toes enjoy the spa deluxe pedicure, sinking into an aromatic soak as tootsie experts sand away callouses and pig bites and exfoliate dry skin with an herbal sugar scrub. Like hands, feet plunge into an ultrahydrating paraffin dip before receiving their own sheath of color.
Alternatively, clients can treat their visages to one of three customized facials. During a European facial, an aesthetician cleanses, moisturizes, and steams skin to push lure out fugitive debris and blemishes, before slathering facescapes with a mask tailored to skin type. Or clients may choose an organic fruit facial and enjoy pumpkin, cranberry, or mango enzymes to clean and nourish pores, or a vitamin facial to replenish skin and protects it against future damage.
