“Organically grown by word of mouth” is a phrase that Elizabeth Havens takes pride in when describing Skin Renewal Systems of Marco Island, her multi-tiered medical spa. What began in 1999 as an esthetician’s offering of facials and microdermabrasion out of a one-room office has grown into one of Marco Island’s destination experiences for health and wellness.
“While I was working for a plastic surgeon in Naples, I was also building a business on Marco Island. When I added a massage therapist, we moved to an adjacent space in the Heritage Square Shopping Area. Next came the nail technician and hair stylists. For the benefit of our guests, I’ve always kept the salon, which is a high-energy, fun-filled place, separate from the spa’s soothing and serene ambiance,” says Havens, who notes that she is particularly proud of the relationship she, as well as her therapists and stylists, have with each client.
A premier provider of skin care, Skin Renewal Systems Spa and Hair Salon offers massage therapy, acupuncture, private yoga classes, wellness therapies, permanent makeup, spray tanning, hair styling, manicures and pedicures.
From haircuts, blow-drying and styling to hair color and complex hair smoothing therapy ,as well as nail care covering everything from traditional manicures and pedicures to full nail sets, fills and overlays, the spa has all aspects of beauty covered, inside and out.
Looking younger and more vibrant is possible with the spa’s numerous varieties of facial services, which include several types of peels, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, micro-current non-surgical lift-up, LED light therapy and skin needling.
Spa services that vary, from waxing to airbrush tanning and an offering of different massage therapies, aromatherapy, reflexology and raindrop therapy allow for deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
The spa specializes in Shirodhara, a form of ayurveda therapy that clears the mind and senses, allowing the body’s natural healing mechanisms to release stress from the nervous system. It involves gently pouring ayurvedic essential oils in a steady stream over the forehead and scalp. This unique treatment begins with the placement of hot stones and hot packs on the belly and legs for grounding and relaxation. A special mixture of fresh lemon, lime, salt and warm castor oil is massaged into the feet to encourage the body to detoxify. A neck, head and face massage stimulates specific body sites to promote energy flow and healing.
