Bottles of PCA Skin and Dermalogica products are aplenty inside Aura Skin Care & Laser Services, where skilled estheticians provide clinical facials, as well as restore vibrancy in skin during microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels. For those looking for an all-over change, Aura Skin Care also offers body-shaping services, such as non-invasive body cavitation treatments that eliminate fat in the body where even workouts can't reach.
It looks a bit like a distant cousin of the R2-D2 droid from Star Wars: it's a modular, upright unit on four wheels with a display screen that could double for a face. But the Harmony XL laser is a primary tool the technicians at Avante Laser & Aesthetics use to beautify their clients. It addresses more than 60 skin conditions, smoothing wrinkles, fading age spots, and removing tattoos. It's also used during Avante's laser hair-removal sessions.
Avante's other main beautification device is the HydraFacial machine. This is used to suction out debris from pores and push serums deep into the face for intense hydration. It can also slough off dead skin cells and glitter makeup left over from childhood beauty pageants with its diamond-tip microdermabrasion, and it can brighten faces during LED treatments.
Katie Marshall's beauty mastery stretches beyond her aesthetics practice. Trained at Vogue Esthetics College and Sternberg College, the certified medical aesthetics practitioner has amassed a deep understanding of how treatments interact with various skin types. During brief consultations, she assesses each new client's skin using a special magnifier that reveals the epidermal effects of genes and lifestyle. Taking into consideration individual goals and whether or not any groundhogs popped out of the pores to see their shadows, she then charts a custom treatment course. Katie is certified to administer an ever-expanding assortment of treatments, including Ultra Sonic facial, waxing, and PCA clinical facials.
