When she hit her 40s, Shannon Lipham started seeing spa days in a new light. They weren't just feel-good days of pampering, but instead opportunities to enhance her skin for longer than just the afternoon or until the next time it rained. So when the beauty expert and seasoned model decided to open Results! Medical Spa, it was with just that in mind: results.
So how do she and her aestheticians achieve long-lasting results? They employ Environ skincare, a medical-grade line that relies upon Vitamin A to restore skin health. Environ products are the backbone of almost every facial and chemical peel, as well as some more-intense medical treatments. For example, her staff uses Environ microneedling to tighten skin without invasive surgery. The needling involves only the prick of small needles that induce healing.
Indulge Salon and Day Spa offers a mélange of spa services within its sprawling and serene confines. Led by owner and movie-makeup artist Stacy Brewer McLarty, a skilled squad of professionals lies in wait to pamper patrons. The 60-minute microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive yet effective method of getting up close and personal with pores. A trained technician unleashes an exfoliating treatment that collides with stale skin cells, which are shattered and swept away to reveal the ravishing, rosy glow inherent to the human face. Although this simple, nearly painless procedure generally requires no down time, some may experience short-term redness and flaking. Whether prepping for an important event or seeking improved aerodynamic flow during porpoise races, faces can find their heart's desire thanks to microdermabrasion.
Endless Summer Tanning Studio infuses bodies with a sexy, beach-ready blush through both tanning beds and sunless-tanning options. The Studio’s 16 tanning beds come in four varieties that supply a different level of tanning intensity, from entry-level booths that take up to 20 minutes to produce results to high-intensity beds that bronze bodies in 7 minutes. Those looking for a UV-free tanning solution can enter the VersaSpa sunless-tanning booth, which swaddles bodies in a custom tanning solution that delivers a lasting, natural-looking bronze.
European Body Wrap boasts a bevy of advanced medspa treatments to sculpt and smooth bone abodes. The triple-inch loss body wrap swathes bodies in warm bandages soaked in collagen, vitamins, caffeine, and wishes to firm dermises, spark sputtering metabolisms, reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, and expel truant toxins. Post-treatment, clients can steam, shower, and smoke-machine away any wrap remnants for better views of their newly slimmed skins. This Groupon is also valid at European Body Wrap's upcoming locations in Lithonia and Peachtree City.

Amber Rampley Avanossian cut her teeth and sharpened her shears as a young stylist in Atlanta. But with an eye toward opening her own studio, she headed out to Los Angeles where she landed a job getting talent camera-ready at the MTV, VH1, and ABC studios. When she returned home in 2003, she built up a clientele at two different Buckhead salons before finally cutting the ribbon at her own salon in 2008.
Today, the master stylist and Redken color specialist stocks Paisley Salon with styling products by Privé, MoroccanOil, Redken, and Wella. Though she specializes in on-trend cuts and color treatments, Amber also straightens curly strands with Keratin Express and Brazilian Blowout treatments and helps clients light up a room with updos or wigs made out of bottle rockets. She and her staff work within a spacious studio, flanked by crisp white walls and black-framed mirrors, all blanketed in natural sunlight that floats in from the floor-to-ceiling front window.
