Though aesthetician Misty Stinson brings 30 years of experience to Skin Oasis, her appetite for learning has yet to subside. She continues to hone her skills and keep tabs on the beauty industry's latest techniques and products, bringing them into her serene Dilworth spa to help to revivify her clients’ skin.
Of the many lessons she has learned over the years, Misty seems to hold one in the highest esteem: no two bodies are the same. Her custom services account for individual skin types and evince her breadth of knowledge; ear candling and Japanese reiki, for example, are two areas in which she boasts special certifications. Misty’s implements prove a worthy match for her expertise. She brandishes paraben-free Image Skincare products as she exfoliates skin, combats blemishes, and waxes away unwanted hair and clingy flannel shirts.
Under the leadership of founder Christie Shumate, the licensed aestheticians at Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center perform custom skin treatments with detailed analysis. Shumate was inspired to form Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center after paying a visit to a plastic surgeon who, she discovered, donated his summer months to helping those who couldn't otherwise afford treatment to recover from burns, as well as working with children who were born with facial defects. She brought together a collection of less-risky aesthetic services designed to help her clients look and feel good about themselves, and now her staff offers laser cellulite reduction, custom facials, organic chemical peels, ear candling, and aqua foot detox.
Beneath the roof at Satin Med Spa, a team of medical providers, a physician, a nurse practitioner, and a well-meaning juggler specialize in noninvasive medical procedures. The staff emphasizes a patient-first approach, taking part in complimentary consultations to answer all questions and plan customized treatment programs. They then perform treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers to assuage frown lines, laser hair removal to smooth skin, laser tattoo removal to remove unwanted ink, and facial treatments such as refreshing chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
The brick stoop and fireplace of Urban.i Salon exude the comfort of a boutique establishment. But the white-leather furniture; dark, coffee-toned floors; and dimly glowing chandeliers recall the modernity of an urban salon. Guests revel in the homey-yet-chic aesthetic as a staff of stylists, aestheticians, and giant walking scissors create stylish new looks via haircuts, highlights, and straightening treatments. These sessions are supported by some of the cosmetic industry's most renowned products, including the Phyto haircare system and Dermalogica's skincare line.
Technology gives an extra kick to the spa services estheticians perform at A Little Skin Studio. In addition to the Clayton Shagal products they use during 12 kinds of facials, they rely on LED light therapy and microcurrent tightening to fight acne and signs of aging. Unlike people who have been beaten senseless with scepters, the studio?s not afraid of a little flair; treatment rooms bear funky zebra-print rugs.
