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 stresses of everyday life dissipate at the hands of Tranquillité Massage Therapy’s licensed staff members, who ply muscles within the softly lit confines of its private treatment rooms. The therapists target chronic aches and pains across the body, digging into or gliding across soft tissue with massage modalities including Swedish, deep-tissue, and soothing hot-stone. Specialty massages administered by highly trained therapists target overworked muscles that impair the body’s performance, and paraffin wax treatments enhance any massage with skin-softening warmth.
A visit to Tranquillité Massage Therapy shows that it takes the implications of its name seriously. Nearly every facet of the center contributes to an optimally relaxing experience, from plush massage beds to a policy that allows clients to prepare for massages at their own pace—time spent undressing, relaxing, and rehearsing groans of relief never counts toward massages.
Returning back east after working under Robert Cromeans?the global artistic director of Paul Mitchell?in his California salon and traveling hair shows, Sergio Pampena succeeded his father as the owner and driving force behind Sergio?s Style. Sergio works closely with the stylists who call his Paul Mitchell Focus Salon home, including three who spend their spare time as national educators for Paul Mitchell. His stylists begin cuts and colorings by ushering clients to the wash house, an alcove situated behind a towering wall of falling water where muscles relish a head and neck massage as soft music trills from speakers and well-hidden carousels. While stylists work, clients can watch their hair color getting mixed at the floor?s color bar or affix eyes on a wall-mounted flat-screen television. Though Sergio?s stylists are chiefly concerned with haircare, a menu of waxing, spray-tanning, and makeup services are available to complement fresh cuts.
At Rejuvenate Medical Spa, Karen A. Roperti, MD and Paul DiMaio, PA-C harness their combined years of experience in the health field to invigorate clients' skin with the latest anti-aging procedures and spa services. Wielding high-tech lasers, the clinical staff zaps unwanted hairs, veins, sun spots, or miniature planets orbiting the head, and handpicked products from Latisse and SkinCeuticals further smoothen skinscapes. Consultations before any appointment are free of charge, instilling peace of mind in guests readying for their first facial procedure or permanent-makeup session.
The staff of MaxManni, an Aveda concept salon and spa, understands that there are many ways to improve appearances. The spa's aestheticians share space with tailors and dressmakers who alter and resize garments to flatter bodies. Aestheticians mount eyelash extensions alongside natural lashes with a polypeptide bond, and accent faces with cosmetics infused with ingredients such as cinnamon from Madagascar. Aided by custom blends of pure flower and plant essences, massage therapists knead and stroke muscles to improve circulation and excavate wallets misplaced under muscle cushions. Tastefully furnished with tile and hardwood floors, MaxManni’s studio upholds a no-cell-phone policy to ensure that no accidents are caused by texting while depilating.
NeüSmile’s bread-and-butter cosmetic service is its express teeth-whitening system. The system uses cold-light technology to help whiten teeth in less than 30 minutes, and clients administer the treatment themselves, allowing them to prep for family photos, special events, or attempts to draw the attention of aloof ivory hunters. NeüSmile broadens its aesthetic scope to eyeballs with Lavish Lashes, an associate business that specializes in eyelash extensions. Certified professionals attach synthetic lashes to eyelids, enhancing natural lashes for up to six weeks.
