Skincare is the specialty at Med Spa At The Gardens. Here, a staff of aestheticians and technicians employ a wide range of approaches?including familiar spa treatments as well as technologically advanced procedures?to bring out the natural radiance of every complexion. Customized, clinical-strength facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasions all help improve the skin's overall tone and texture. But the med spa perfects the dermis below the neck as well, offering hair-removal and skin-tightening sessions that rely upon cosmetic laser systems. And for clients simply looking to relax, Med Spa At The Gardens can provide reflexology, massages, and nice, comfy chairs.
The licensed aestheticians at Defined Sugaring Studio know that sugar doesn't just make chocolate cakes delicious and cardboard cakes palatable, it also removes unwanted hair more efficiently than wax. That's because its blend of all-natural lemon, water, and sugar grips hair shafts while never sticking to skin, allowing estheticians to clear away strands with less irritation. The esthetician further protects the skin with multi-purpose Hungarian hydrating mud, which soothes with anti-inflammatory ingredients for a rejuvenating treatment that clears away stored toxins and optionally helps with ingrown hairs.
Comfort is key at Waxing Mania, which is why the certified and licensed aestheticians only slather skin with organic hard wax during hair-removal services. This method is said to leave less residue than soft wax and is reportedly much less painful than duct tape. The techs also put clients at ease by maintaining a high level of cleanliness—including a strict no double-dipping policy—and keeping most appointment times under 30 minutes. All sessions are held behind closed doors in private treatment rooms, where soothing music and neutral décor create a peaceful ambiance.
Most days upon leaving class at the International School of Skin and Nailcare, Kristen Axton headed straight to her job at Kiehl's. This combination of formal training and on-the-job experience helped develop her aesthetic expertise, which she further refined while working at several med spas throughout Atlanta. Today, as owner of Kristen's Skin Care & Massage, she commands a team of massage therapists and aestheticians dedicated to beautifying and de-stressing clients. Their signature Atlanta facial restores vim and vigor to lagging faces with a multi-step regimen that includes peels derived from herbal enzymes or therapeutic acids. Aestheticians also slough away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion sessions designed to lessen scarring from acne, sun damage, and general wear and tear. Elsewhere in the shop, massage therapists unravel kinked muscles with techniques borrowed from Swedish and neuromuscular specialties.

The professionals at Pure Aesthetics & Skin Care rejuvenate complexions with a range of skin treatments, employing Environ Skin Care products infused with vitamins and antioxidants. During facials, aestheticians target signs of aging or concerns specific to teens, such as acne or lips that are chapped from blowing kisses to Justin Bieber posters. Technicians resurface skin and promote deep exfoliation with peels made from pumpkin or papaya enzymes or glycolic or lactic acid. The skincare pros also wax away unwanted hair to groom areas including eyebrows, bikini lines, and legs.
