The cosmetic clinicians at Essentially Bare rely on a combination of lasers and pharmaceutical-grade products to correct a range of skin issues. Their Lumenis laser has cleared hair from more than 8,000 clients and a dozen former werewolves, and the Q-switched Spectra lasers can erase unwanted tattoos in half the normal amount of treatments required and in shorter intervals between treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal. Additionally, the Spectra lasers effectively target most ink colors, resulting in a significantly lightened or completely erased tattoo in a short time frame.
Before administering any treatments, staff members demonstrate their commitment to personalized care by thoroughly analyzing clients' skin. Essentially Bare also provides physician-only skin care with peels and facials featuring professional brands, such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Image Skincare, to ward off wrinkles, redness, and acne. Overall, they offer a wide variety of services such as laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, IPL photo facials, spider vein removal, and more.
Although it's not an NFL place kicker's living room, Mozi Foot Spa pays tons of attention to the feet and happens to air sports games on its flat-screen TVs. The staff pays ample attention to kicking tools by using ancient Chinese reflexology techniques—massage therapists apply their kneading techniques to the feet, stimulating blood circulation and promoting detoxification. They enhance foot-spa treatments with soothing soaks that include the relaxing power of jets and a steam, followed by a bunny spooning with your ankle. The massage therapists also help guests relax with a variety of bodywork, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
The salon's decor promotes serenity as much as the services. Plush off-white treatment love seats are divided by flowing white curtains, and pink flowers loom overhead.
The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
The Zinnia flower that serves as Elite Medspa & Wellness? logo may symbolize memories, but their powerful SCITON laser actually makes memories?out of wrinkles, spider veins, and unwanted hair, that is. The team, led by medical director and Board-certified physician Dr. Saira Nisar, chose the SCITON laser for a slew of reasons. Not only is it completely capable of handling a rogues gallery of cosmetic complaints, but it dispatches them with the quickness. Its high-speed scanner?which allows the laser to pack a wallop without damaging tissue?is paired up with a computer-guidance system that evenly distributes heat and teaches the laser how to play chess when the office closes for the night.
But the medspa is more than just technology. The staff also works with time-honored treatments to beautify faces, such as chemical peels, Botox, and Juvederm. They even embrace downright ancient techniques, such as hot-stone massage and aromatherapy.
A ballroom dancer for more than 20 years, Richard Green understands how the body communicates. His work in ballet and modern dance instilled in him a deep fascination with structural alignment, muscular energy, and balance, as well as a comprehensive understanding of how the body heals from injury. Today, at Massage Therapy Works, he helms a large staff of highly trained massage therapists who customize each treatment chosen from a long list of therapies. Thai bodywork increases lymphatic drainage through massage and passive yoga poses, helping decompress joints and increase range of motion, while sports massages help active individuals prevent or recover from injuries sustained on the field or while acting out slow-motion replays. Meanwhile, classic techniques such as deep tissue and therapeutic massage assist in the removal of physical tension and mental stress and oncology massage helps bodies better manage symptoms of cancer treatment through gentle strokes, energy work, and guided meditation.
