For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.
Supervised by Ayurvedic physician and healer Dr. Lina Thakar, the specialists at Ayurveda Integrative Wellness Institute reach 5,000 years into the past when administering their Indian therapeutic techniques. The Ayurvedic philosophy centers on the individuality of each person, leading the staff to customize their blends of herbal oils and scents before beginning their Ayurvedic spa treatments. These calming procedures range from steam therapy to healing oil massage, with focuses such as detoxification and healing the mind, body, and spirit. During massage, technicians use several Ayurvedic techniques along the body's energy channel to help restore the flow of vital energy wherever it has become blocked. This in combination with herbal oils help squeeze out toxins to detoxify the body. The center also imparts wellness consultations on Ayurvedic nutrition and lifestyle options, as well as meditation.
At Sewickley Med Spa, highly trained medical professionals help patients to reclaim or maintain their youthful appearance with advanced aesthetic treatments. Dr. Thomas Michael has more than 25 years of experience and training in aesthetic medicine and currently serves as the medical director of Heritage Valley WoundCare. He worked for many years in the areas of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and emergency medicine, and he can therefore sing in perfect harmony with an ambulance siren.
Together with registered nurse and cosmetic-dermatology specialist Michele Altobello, Dr. Michael provides complimentary consultations for medical-grade skincare services including chemical peels, Botox, Dysport, and dermal fillers. The clinical team also enhances natural beauty with permanent makeup and addresses spider veins with sclerotherapy. The reception area of the private, discreet office is decorated with soothing violet tones and a potted orchid.
The multitalented team at Brodhead Spa performs treatments that are as relaxing as the fuss-free environment they're performed in. Guests cradle a warm mug of flavored coffee or specialty tea in the Paul Mitchell salon area as they watch a stylist mix custom hues at the color bar. As they relax back for a shampoo, awapuhi treatment, patrons can rest their eyes or fix them on a globe-like chandelier bursting with designs that resemble snowflakes or the permanent sparkle emanating from an anchorman's smile.
In the adjacent nail room, cream-colored pedicure chairs pop against a deep blue accent wall, setting a tranquil mood as feet are nourished with ingredients such as fragrant Moroccan rose oil or skin-softening cocoa butter. Plush white robes await guests retreating to private treatments rooms where male and female therapists are available to provide Swedish or hot-stone massages.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
Through custom, comprehensive care, the experienced staffers at Michael's Hairloft Spa & Tanning can revitalize seasonally affected locks, brains, and skin tones. Resident stylists perk up tired color with ammonia-free organic color products ($65+ for a retouch) or remix looks from scratch, granting clients a whole new 'do ($100+ for a cut and color). For a relaxing retreat, the loft's licensed massage therapists deliver personalized strokes over the course of 60 slow-ticked minutes. Clients can step into one of the salon's eight Wolfe tanning beds to get their skin feeling sun-kissed without having to meet Mr. Golden's parents, or simply bask in a red light therapy session designed to heal blemishes, increase circulation, and extend colorful changes for weeks at a time. The loft keeps its airy space open six days a week, with closing hours as late as 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
