There are no facials more personalized to your needs than these. Each step is a fusion of science, natural botanicals, aromatherapy oils and luxurious techniques customized with clinical strength ingredients uniquely designed to deliver results. The first step begins with a consultation to determine your concerns and skin goals, followed by invigorating cleansing and exfoliation with steam, gentle extractions, plus a power treatment and mask targeted to your concerns. To ensure your Attainable Relaxation, you will experience gentle and skin plumping massage of your shoulders, neck, decollete and upper arms. Hand and forearm massage will be performed while your exfoliation mask is steaming. And finally a hot towel foot wrap and massage of feet and lower legs.

Body Exfoliation Treatment

Experience Bioelements therapeutic body exfoliation treatment that uses medicinal Chinese herbs to smooth and retexturize your skin from neck to toes. It starts on a warmed table, with an application of warm Jojoba Oil followed by an exfoliating Herbology application. You’ll then be cocooned in sheets and blankets, enjoying a relaxing Essential Oil scalp massage. Then we finish with an application of warmed body lotion to melt the therapeutic granules into your skin. The result will be silky smooth, revitalized skin that will feel comfortable for days.

I have been going to estheticians since the early 80’s, in Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, New York, London (England), Mexico, California, The Caribbean and TC. You are by far the very best, I have ever known. If your Salon has the right ambiance combined with your talent, you should become a top Spa in TC in no time.

Have you ever paid for waxing, only to get home and have to tweeze anyway?!  We are as meticulous as we are gentle. If it is there, we will get it! We use Cirepil wax AND Clean & Easy wax. Tonya has 5 waxes available to use at all times. She has learned over the past 30+ years in this business that no two people are alike. And the hair on your face is MUCH different from the hair on your body. So, we have the ability to select the right wax for the job, and if we come across another wax that fits a need, we will get that too. All waxes are NOT created equal, we choose to use only the best! Known for the finest depilatory waxes ever made, Cirepil is unique because its products are client comfortable and low temperature. 

Complete waxing, completely pain free - gentle touch, gentle spirit, so relaxing. Thank you.
