Helmed by a spa savant with 12 years of experience, Re|You MedSpa cossets clients with a wide range of services, from holistic wellness treatments to advanced medical procedures. Facials pamper skin with all-natural salves and pharmaceutical-grade treatments including injectables, peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts.

At Majestic Skin and Massage, it’s all about individuality. The team of massage therapists and aestheticians believes that no two people share identical skin types or muscular tension, and thus, no two people should receive identical facials or massages. Clients can pick from an extensive lineup of facials geared toward specific facial concerns, such as wrinkles, acne, or sensitive skin, before the aesthetician further customizes the treatment to fit the client’s unique skin type. Similarly, four massage modalities, including Thai, therapeutic, and chair massage, converge to root out kinks with tailored strokes that render each muscle softer than a pillow stuffed with smaller pillows.
