Licensed aesthetician Rita Cluff relies on the power of light to do more than brighten her clients' features. She is certified to cease hair growth, combat acne, and soften signs of aging with the iPulse i400 Intense Pulsed Light system, whose beams cause minimal discomfort to the skin surface. Rita goes beyond her laser duties for every IPL facial that she conducts—after the treatment, she shapes or tints brows and applies a complimentary mask, achieving a youthful look more effectively than tracing old yearbook photos onto guests' faces.
She doesn't limit Face Envy's services to laser treatments, however. Thermage skin tightening, peels, and cosmetic tattoos flatter the dermal landscape, and Rita's registered-nurse associate Angie Tolbert subtracts wrinkles with Botox and Restylane fillers.
takes an aggressive stance against aging and blemishes. Treatments here include peels and facials that target acne, discoloration, and wrinkles. For example, a revitalizing anti-aging facial incorporates clinical ingredients?trichloracetic acid, phytohormones, and lactic acids?to smooth the skin and give it a renewed glow. Other services include an oxygenating peel particularly beneficial for expecting mothers, and a purifying pumpkin mask that uses antioxidants and vitamins to
draw out impurities such as toxins, which are notoriously shy.
Clients relax as they sip frothy beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's two locations aim to make waxing or sugaring a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' jangling nerves with drinks from the wet bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure sugaring and waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica and Aveda.
The eponymous owner of Catelyn?s Place doesn?t draw a line between results and relaxation. Her med-spa treatments combine detail-oriented care and constant communication to ensure a comfortable experience for all clients. Catelyn?s three types of body wraps boost skin?s health with hydrating ingredients and therapeutic oils, and her personalized facial veers off course to include a decadent foot massage. During her waxing treatments, Catelyn uses a special formula infused with ingredients designed to make skin less sensitive to pain and yo' mama jokes.
