For the past two decades, Chi Nguyen has covered all her beauty bases. She’s been a massage therapist, an aesthetician, a hairstylist, and a registered nurse. As the owner of Chinergy Med Spa & Skin Care, which sits tucked within Beauty & Body Lounge, Chi works alongside her staff, performing traditional spa and medspa services. Chinergy's approach to skincare mimics the methodical nature of its medically trained founder: after performing a skin analysis to determine each client's skin type and facial structure, the staff creates a treatment plan. Depending on the findings, the plan may include IPL photofacials, injections of dermal fillers, or simple chemical peels. The technicians can also use a Cutera CoolGlide laser system to erase spider veins bulging along the legs, hair sprouting from the back, and aliens bursting from the stomach.
Beauty professional Anastasia Holbrook wants all her clients to have a good head on their shoulders and a great face to go with it. So she offers eyebrow waxing, tinting, and facials that enhance features and keep skin clear.

For all of her facial treatments, Anastasia uses the Osmosis Skin Care line?s water soluble, plant-based products to gently correct imperfections and protect the epidermis, while fighting aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
