Janet Abbey, the president of Ohio MedSpa, knows from firsthand experience how challenging it can be to maintain a healthy body and positive self-image. That?s why she and her team offer an array of nonsurgical treatments and programs aimed at combating fat and slimming silhouettes. Ultrasonic-cavitation sessions target deposits of troublesome fat cells with the power of sound energy, and radio-frequency treatments help smooth out cellulite without the need for scalpels or rolling pins.
As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
The 21st Century Nails staff has been pampering digits for more than a decade, transforming blank keratin sheets into shiny tips with a variety of polish hues. In addition to regular polish, the staff utilizes Shellac, Gelish, and OPI gel nail polish designed to last up to three weeks. A UV LED lamp dries nails in 30 seconds, allowing patrons to more quickly test out the Shellac’s chip protection by challenging the nearest prizefighter to a game of patty cake.
Armed with the Europro IPL Record 618 system, Beachwood Hair Clinic’s certified laser technicians polish away hairs, veins, and signs of aging from the body’s chassis. Beachwood Hair Clinic also tends to physiques with acne and vein-vanishing treatments as well as the laser-less Awaken Bio-Lift treatment, which releases mild electrical currents across visages to help firm and tighten skin.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
