Profile

A two-woman operation, Teana Beauty Center is a surprisingly efficient spot that favors targeted facials over acupressure rub-downs. Up front, there’s a small waiting area containing a bench built for one, as well as shelves stocked with products from Phytomer, MD Formulations, and some unusual, infomercial-worthy gimmicks from the Orient (e.g., ultrasonic “beauty stimulator wands,” bust-enhancing pills, and something called “eyelid putty”). Beyond a wicker partition, three treatment beds are the sites for facials, body wraps and waxing. And though curtains between each bed can be drawn for modesty’s sake, the sound of a snoring client one bed over is not uncommon. Facials—which run from basic to more exotic options using house formulations like goat-embryo peels—are performed with a muscle-lifting touch then finished with a thick, perfumed clay mask. Provided in a separate private treatment room, massages are done on a pay-per-minute basis—although a foot rub is tacked on at no additional charge.
