Lake Lansing Family Practice’s medical experts attend to patient needs ranging from family medicine to personalized skincare. Dr. A. J. Ronan takes on wrinkle reduction as a certified-physician injector of Botox and Dysport, which can forestall frown lines for up to three months. The family practice's onsite skincare specialist oversees a barrage of other aesthetic services, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Antifuzz specialists vaporize unwanted hair with Syneron Comet laser technology, which combines diode-laser and bipolar radio-frequency energies to target and disable follicles—a successful pairing that rivals the time Fred and Ginger tap-danced on a giant peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.
Inside Salon Soteria, dedicated stylists spoil hair with products from Aveda, Schwarzkopf, and Redken while crafting new styles and amplifying beauty. The collection of services extends to include mani-pedis, makeup artistry, waxing, and ear piercing. Staff members can perform full makeovers on individuals and tend to the beauty needs of entire bridal parties or Civil War reenactors readying for battle.
After taking time off to nurture her new beautiful family, licensed nail technician Candice Tess has found herself freshly enthused to bring out the beauty in others. In her cozy chair, Candice decorates nail billboards with acrylic and shellac polishes, and rehabs cuticles with therapeutic paraffin wax treatments. Patrons can also solicit the salon's other dynamic services such as hair styling, waxing, massage, and rock-paper-scissor coaching.
Although many spas tout themselves as welcoming, Gentle Touch has a downright familial atmosphere thanks to its owners, Betsy Ludwick and Jill Petter, who also happen to be mother and daughter. Ludwick, a registered nurse and certified medical electrologist, draws from her years in the medical field to treat clients with a variety of aesthetic services, such as electrolysis, skincare treatments, and permanent makeup for high-school reunions that last forever. On the same career path as her mother, Petter taps into her medical background in dermatology and electrolysis to share her expertise with her clients during comfortable, personable sessions.
The aestheticians at Eyebrow Threading reshape eyebrows and clear faces of unwanted fuzz without chemicals or harsh waxes. Instead, they prefer to look each errant hair in the eye before extricating it with lengths of cotton thread or tweezers. This method gives them much better control, allowing them to remove only the unwanted hairs and leave the ones pardoned by the governor.
