The epidermal advocates at Boone's Creek Medical––a physician-owned and operated center––reveal faces' most radiant aspects through microdermabrasion treatments. Visages recline as skin expert Selena Hoyle buffs away their outermost shell of dead and dehydrated skin cells, unveiling the luminous layer underneath. The 60-minute session leaves countenances visibly smoother, shrinks signs of acne and sun damage, and curtails the fine lines caused by smitten eyebrows that won't stop canoodling.
After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
The staff at Cadence's Body Contouring & Health Spa combines the technology of med-spa treatments with natural services such as organic manicures, custom massages, and traditional waxing. Its five anti-aging facials and four body-contouring treatments benefit from advances in the spa industry such as infrared saunas, Endermologie machines, and LED phototherapy.
Licensed aesthetician Joanna Ferree isn't satisfied with merely making her clients look youthful and glowing on the outside, so she aims to nourish faces and boost self-esteem with individualized facials, microdermabrasion, and bridal makeovers.
Ferree has a prime opportunity to accentuate the stunning features of each specific client through the in-depth skin-and-lifestyle analysis that precedes every facial treatment. Based on the results, she treats specific conditions and brightens skin with custom skincare treatments and organic herbal preparations. She bases her custom facials in hydrotherapy and includes De La Terre Skincare products along with organic teas, salts, and serums. She furthers skin smoothness with waxing treatments for the face, legs, bikini, chest, and vestigial tail.
Though they originally opened as Renaissance Hair Removal in 2005, the team behind The Med Spa quickly realized that their clients were seeking different ways to look younger and feel more beautiful. They would later changed their name to reflect the breadth of their newly added services, which now include laser treatments, skincare, and teeth whitening using Energist Ultra VPL and Aerolase, making treatments safe for
all skin types, including darker skin. In addition to removing hair, they can target acne, rosacea, or wrinkles with laser technology, or perform non-laser resurfacing HydraFacials that infuse skin with moisture. The clinic also offers the Diamond Medilift: a noninvasive macro- and micro-current procedure that stimulates facial muscles better than watching Animal House and Beaches simultaneously on two separate TVs.
From within their cottage-style studio in downtown Cornelius, licensed aestheticians and makeup artists Casey Nelson and Lauren Knox treat faces to a menu of skin and makeup services. Glamorous purple hues and red accents fill their lounge—inspired by a French boudoir—where they tackle acne and aging with chemical peels and free pores of dirt and whack-a-moles with their 60-minute signature facial. Once faces are clean and fresh, Casey and Lauren gussy up features with a spectrum of makeup applications, from “just the eyes” to a full makeover. They also prune overgrown areas with waxing treatments for the legs, bikini area, and brows.
