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.
Maddie Feher creates works of art, but she doesn't work in watercolor or clay. Instead, she focuses on finger- and toenails. During mani-pedis, she buffs and shapes nails before adorning them with vibrant polish that Michelangelo could have only dreamed of using on his sculptures.
Inside the U.S. Bank Building sits Europa by Sasha Salon & Spa, bedecked in marble fixtures and vivid paintings that glow under soothing spa lighting. Aestheticians help faces slough off dead skin cells through exfoliation and imbue cheeks with moisture and the motivation to finally finish their novels. Massage therapists knead sore tissues, and expert colorists enhance mop tops with color treatments, allowing hair tones to match a new outfit or freshly reupholstered couches. Other services include manicures, formal updos, makeup applications, and sauna sessions.
Under the leadership of Dr. Robert Rossio, a board-certified plastic surgeon, Aesthetic Lasers & Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center is a comprehensive stop for non-invasive laser and skincare treatments. Beam-wielder Dr. Rossio will direct the light of the future (intense pulse light) to minimize age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and overly enthusiastic or hyper pigmentations ($500 for three treatments), as well as to eradicate unwanted hair and lamentable tattoos. Though the number of tattoo-removal treatments (four sessions for $500) depends on the size and ferocity of the image, no image is too big or scary for the undaunted RevLite photons.
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.
At Yelena Skin Care Salon, the only things that shine brighter than the lobby's gilded picture frames and golden wall accents are the glowing complexions that flow forth from candle-lit treatment rooms. There, technicians customize facials to minimize redness or diminish signs of aging, incorporating products by Murad or blemish-targeting light therapy, and doling out relaxing upper-body massage and warm mitts and booties for hands and feet. Body-care treatments range from soothing Swedish massages to sea-salt scrubs that leave skin soft and hydrated, while Yelena's staff can also wax away unwanted hairs, leaving legs and brows as smooth as a dolphin's silk pajamas.
