For 19 years, the staff at Class Act Salon and Spa has been doling out dozens of salon and spa treatments designed to meet the needs of every face, body, and head of hair. Along the way, the salon's hairstylists have earned a reputation for repairing strands suffering from bad dye jobs or perms, carefully applying corrective color treatments and softening frizzy poufs with the CHI permanent-straightening system or custom-designed root perms. To help clients choose the best cut for their face shape, a computer-imaging system lets them see what they would look like capped in various styles or with George Clooney's chin and presents them with a take-home DVD or VHS as a reference. Heads boasting little hair to work with can find several options for filling out their follicle count, including laser hair therapy, hair integration, and wigs or permanent attachments. For those with too much hair, needleless electrolysis swiftly evicts up to 10 hairs at a time without lasers or a court-ordered removal, and microdermabrasion and herbal peels escort dry, dull skin cells from the skin's surface to let softer, smoother skin move in.
Under the direction of Dr. Sanjiv R. Kumar, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School, Sonterra Laser Med Spa's licensed aestheticians and laser technicians efface signs of aging with attention to detail that garners the spa regular attention on KENS 5's Great Day SA. Advanced skin-analysis machines scan faces before services to give technicians a closer look at bacteria, sun damage, and wrinkles not visible to the naked or clothed eye. The results determine what skincare services best suit each client, including glo minerals chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal-filler injections. The Lumenis LightSheer Duet laser treatment utilizes a larger spot size to reach greater depths of penetration and destroys hair strands at the root.
