Quinn keeps skin soft and smooth to the touch with her focused waxing treatments. She uses blue hot wax for most of her clients, but is happy to switch to soft wax for those with sensitive skin. She conducts each of these sessions from inside Salon Domani, a full-service salon situated steps away from the Factoria Mall. While waiting to see Quinn, guests can surf free Wi-Fi for pictures of stylish naked mole rats or lounge in one of the lobby's overstuffed chairs.
Much of what Serenity Rejuvenation Center does rests on the shoulders of its medical director, Dr. Stephen O'Connell. As a physician, his knack for physical medicine and rehabilitation ultimately earned him a diplomate status on the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. However, upon reaching another of his field's peaks, Dr. O'Connell decided to branch out into the field of aesthetic medicine. Today, he oversees skincare services such as Botox and Juvederm, along with Cool Sculpting, laser hair removal, weight loss services such as the hCG diet, and wellness services such as vitamin B injections, which inject the bloodstream with a shot of bees.
After working professionally as a chemical engineer for eight years, Shelley Banoo decided to direct her deep understanding of molecules and compounds toward improving human chemistry. First acquiring a license as an aesthetician and then as a massage therapist, she blends an intricate understanding of chemical minutiae and a genuine passion for anti-aging skincare science to compile a roster of products that produce real results. Having now practiced spa work for 10 years, Banoo has grown accustomed to seeing all types of skin and can sometimes recommend an appropriate regimen of treatment on sight, eschewing tests and intrusive hugs other practitioners often rely on.
The licensed aestheticians at Advanced Skin & Body Solutions specialize in the rejuvenation of skinscapes via facials, massages, waxing, and sunless tanning treatments. With dexterous hands, the specialists massage mugs with a toning Synergie treatment during age-defying facials. They also employ medical-grade glycolic peels to help decrease the appearance of wrinkles, acne, scarring, and sun damage. Their LED photorejuvenation procedures stimulate production of collagen and elastin, and skin-buffing microderm treatments remove dead skin cells and discarded price tags that cover most cheekbones. The spa welcomes guests with private treatment areas and large windows that overlook the surrounding trees.
When Frida Emalange opened her first salon in 2001, she recognized the need for a salon in the area that would cater to clients with all types of hair. Now, with her dream salons, Zorganics Health & Beauty, she continues this mission, along with using and selling a line of natural, organic products. Drawing inspiration from Zora—the name of Frida’s daughter, as well as a word meaning “dawn” or “rising sun”—the stylists work to make each client’s hair and skin look and feel as lovely as the sunrise. Along with hair care that includes couture haircuts, Keratin treatments, cornrows, and full weaves, the staff members pamper nails and skin with organic spa treatments. They also bundle their services into pampering packages that may include candle lit massage, which is what George Washington called it when he cleaned his musket.
