Ruby Beauty Center lends Eastern flair to salon and spa services that beautify hands, feet, hair, and skin. Henna imbues manes with rich auburn tones ($25+) or, during mendhi sessions, dapples hands with intricate designs of flowers, leaves, and bar-exam answers ($7+ per hand). Staffers daub away unwelcome whiskers from underarms with powerful wax ($7) or gently twist free visage vines with threading ($20 for full face). A thermo herb facial ($55) undoes the effects of tense muscles and gorgon-staring contests by evacuating pores with warmth and salving skin with botanical ingredients.
The Fountain Laser Hair Removal's staff brings years of laser-helming experience to the relaxing, spa-like environment. Laser hair removal treatments banish unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, arms, and a plethora of other areas. Lasers emit light energy, damaging targeted hair follicles and resulting is reduced hair growth. The treatments work on all skin types, though results vary based on complexion and hair pigment.
The skilled technicians at the center also help shape bodies into model figurines with laser-lipo treatments. Using advanced technology a laser is carefully applied directly to the skin during sessions to assist fat cells in opening up and releasing their lipid content. Laser sessions mimic the same actions seen in exercising, creating an overall effect of a more toned and sculpted body. Sessions may also aid in skin shrinkage, overall inch loss, and targeting problem areas such as love handles or double-chins.
Drawing on experience working with versatile medspa products and technologies, the licensed aestheticians at Laser Logic provide powerful treatments for an array of skincare concerns. The center?s cosmetic laser?a Cynosure Apogee Elite system? allows the staff to zap unwanted stubble or minimize the appearance of age spots, sun damage, and spider veins for clients with virtually any skin type. Similarly, the medspa?s compound chemical peels restore a youthful glow to countenances by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and by gently dissolving old Groucho moustaches. Laser Logic also provides free consultations where an aesthetician will meet with visitors and perform a spot test to observe how their skin responds to the laser.
Reveal Laser Spa's treatments do what exercise has trouble doing?spot-treat the fat in problem areas. Noninvasive treatments tighten skin and reduce stretch marks with a combination of radio frequency and magnetic pulses. Other treatments, such as ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, shrink fat cells with localized ultrasonic waves while firming skin to ward off cellulite. The noninvasive lasers used in Reveal's i-Lipo treatments do the same. To complement the surgery-free weight-loss treatments, the center beautifies clients with luxurious facials and waxing.
Because of the way hair grows, it takes more than one laser session to banish it from the body for good. It's with the knowledge of this process in mind that the crew at Dermani Medspa offers laser hair removal treatments both a la carte and as part of monthly membership programs. Certified aestheticians take aim at unwanted fuzz on nearly any part of the body, including men?s beards and hobbits? toes, using the Lumenis LighSheer Duet. They take a similar membership-style approach to beauty treatments such as microdermabrasions and chemical peels, as these services also tend to yield more dramatic effects over the course of multiple treatments. All of these services take place in a clean, modernly designed clinic painted in soothing earth tones.
