Often spotted at local fashion shows, bridal expos, and other events, Hair Connoisseurs Salon & MediSpa's assorted stylists, aestheticians, and ache easers coddle bodies with services for hair, nails, and skin in a flower-filled lakefront facility. In the salon, nimble shears create new styles for men and women, perms and relaxers alter hair textures, and highlights and color treatments get head threads to shimmer without weaving a false ponytail from sunbeams. Gauzy fabric hangs from the ceiling of the private room where trained massage therapists aim to reduce stress with soft kneading, direct pressure, or aromatherapy oil blends. At stone-topped manicure stations, technicians beautify fingers and toes with acrylic, fiberglass, and silk wrap nails, which can be tapped on coral stone accent columns to summon the ghosts of dried-out polish bottles.
Dorothy, the experienced aesthetician behind Eternal Youth Skin Care, protects her clients from the dangers of invasive procedures and toxic products with her collection of holistic facials. Among options that clients would be hard-pressed to find on another spa’s menu, the laser-alternative facial combines BioLamp therapy with hyperbaric pressure that pushes minerals deep into the skin. In a similarly innovative vein, Dorothy’s Botox-alternative treatment starts with a light peel and enhances the effects of its ingredients with small electrical currents. Aside from these and other facial treatments, Dorothy heals skin and helps shoulders sprout their nascent wings with infrared body wraps and holistic energy work.
Captained by Dr. James Young, the Goldfingers Skin Care staff fills the salon-style space with the latest in ultramodern med-spa and anti-aging technologies. Aestheticians enhance skin with treatments ranging from exfoliating microdermabrasion and chemical peels to permanent makeup application and laser hair removal. In private rooms, skilled massage therapists ease spinal pain with effulgent strokes and gentle nuzzles from resident kittens.
All pampering takes place in the calming environment of Jon’ Ric’s modern, expansive location .In the cozy confines, warm, private rooms are sealed and soundproof to provide an idyllic place for tension tamers to work their magic on aching bodies.

The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
