At Amherst Laser and Skin Care Center, aesthetic treatments go beyond ordinary waxing treatments and cleansing facials. Along with these basic offerings, Dr. Robert Weitzman and his dedicated staff use state-of-the-art lasers for a number of treatments, from banishing unwanted hair to spurring hair growth with a futuristic iGrow laser helmet. Other laser treatments include skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and tattoo removal.
Aestheticians also incorporate natural and holistic elements into a number of treatments designed to nourish the skin and help maintain a refreshed, youthful appearance. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a DiamondTome wand helps remove dead skin cells. The process can promote new skin cell growth and stimulate collagen while treating fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
The Ivy Tanning Salon and Spa's stable of nail artists, massage therapists, and aestheticians caters to every beauty whim with a spectrum of treatments. During mani-pedis, technicians pull from either standard polish or long-lasting Shellac to add color and ?Paint Me? notes to nails. Massage therapists narrow their scope to focus on one tense area during regional massages or combine hot stones and Swedish strokes to restore beleaguered muscles throughout the body. Nine types of facials tend to age-specific needs, such as removing impacted glitter makeup from teenaged pores or smoothing out wrinkles with doses of vitamin C. There are even multiple ways to achieve a bronze: through five types of UV tanning beds or painstaking spritzes from an airbrush artist.
If two heads are better than one, then it would stand to reason that 15 heads are 15 times better than one. The 15 stylists at Salon Advantages make a formidable team, utilizing advanced products and the Redken Professional Hair Color line to create styles that turn heads but don’t attract swarms of angry bees. The salon's colorist blends custom shades that add depth, dimension, and shine, while shears-wielding hair technicians shape face-flattering styles with deftly snipped angles and layers.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
The owners of NELO are both medical professionals who understand the body inside and out. They address each person's questions and concerns with knowledge and compassion. Everyone is treated with respect and sensitivity regarding the procedures they are most interested in purchasing.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Absolutely. Beauty is on the outside too. Beauty is every one's unique vision. NELO strives to address the personal needs and choices an individual wishes to make to enhance a sense of self-esteem and self-empowerment.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Most individuals looking to have cosmetic procedures done have a level of uncertainty and vulnerability. The owners of NELO understand this and strive to engage each client in an atmosphere of trust and reliability.
With more than nine years of experience as a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, Kate Franklin specializes in giving her clients a natural look that complements their features and complexion. She accomplishes this by using natural and organic skincare products whenever possible, including makeup by producers such as Jane Iredale and bareMinerals. Beyond performing makeup applications for weddings or other special events, the studio also offers mani-pedis, waxing treatments, and facials that leave the skin exfoliated, hydrated, and nourished. Organic airbrush-tanning sessions are also available for visitors looking to imbue their skin with a sun-kissed hue without lying in a tanning bed or sitting on a solar panel.
Skin Therapy owner Stacy Beaudoin only opens her spa on evenings and weekends, but during that time, she's laser focused on pampering her clients' skin and nails. As a licensed electrologist, she can remove unwanted hair permanently with electrolysis. Alternatively, she can wax away body hair, using heat-sterilized tweezers and a fresh stick for every application. She also nourishes and rehydrates skin with Bioelements facials and peels and beautifies nails with eco-friendly polish during indulgent mani-pedis.
