A modernly geometric space lavished in cream and umber tones, Suddenly Beautiful's staff calls on their diverse expertise to trim excess volume from both locks and limbs. In private treatment rooms, technicians cloak patrons with one of seven body wraps, which aim to deduct 6–20 inches from all over the body. The salon's lavender walls and picture windows surround stylists as they infuse hair with products from Eufora, Matrix, and Moroccanoil, conjuring more strength and shine than a bodybuilding magic mirror. Massage by either licensed therapists or the warm water jets of hydrotherapy merge with specialized facials and tanning services to round out the pampering menu.
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.
This women's clinic offers a range of health and wellness services, from diagnostic testing to surgical procedures to botox. Partner aestheticians consult on botox services, while the injections are performed by trained physicians. The certified aestheticians at Alaska Women's Advanced Pelvic Surgery and Urogynecology also refresh faces with botanical-infused Yon-Ka products as well as PCA and Colorscience. The results can solve myriad complexion problems. The facials, for example, can deep clean, hydrate, or firm aging skin; the peels exfoliate with ingredients such as green tea and willow extract.
At Prescriptive Facial Aesthetics, a slate of clinical skincare treatments forms an umbrella of care over problematic complexions. Angie Kearns, LCA incorporates glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids into custom blends for chemical peels, which join diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments to draw out rosy color, diminish blemishes, and soften fine facial lines that attempt to resemble their bearer's spirit animal. Obagi and PCA products add nourishing ingredients to the skincare treatments, and Juvederm, Botox, and Radiesse injections from Susan Canafax, FNP leave faces smooth and youthful.
Advanced-practice nurse Leeanne Mercier specializes in keeping women healthy, but she also focuses on their personal comfort. After 20 years of providing preventative healthcare to the indigenous women of the arctic, Mercier opened her own clinic for women's health in 2004. She now owns All About You Medical Spa, where she takes an individualized approach to beauty and wellness. Aestheticians put patients at ease with advanced training in services such as cosmetic injectables, skin-tightening derma-roller treatments, and nonsurgical liposuction sessions.
In the turquoise-walled Thai room, Asian-inspired art and lush tapestries create a cozy, welcoming backdrop for women's wellness exams. The reception area is no less comforting—a cushy red sofa sprawls beside a wood-framed fireplace, whose flame-fed light mingles with rays from the sparkling chandelier overhead. The massage room also features a fireplace, along with a painting depicting a window-like view into an exotic landscape.
Embody Health & Wellness Center LLC's massage and chiropractic services may seem nearly endless, but they all work toward a common goal: relieving pain. Medical massage eases kinks associated with illness, whereas acupressure unblocks internal energy, which may be causing aches. Reflexology blends massage and pressure-point work to boost overall wellness, and lymphatic-drainage massage releases fluids that contribute to inflammation.
