The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
When it comes to permanent makeup, Janet Nodine isn't just savvy—she's certified. Already an experienced cosmetician, Janet picked up multiple credentials from the American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics as she honed her ability to enhance lips, eyebrows, and lashes with natural pigments applied to the dermal layer of the skin. She also happens to be a certified nurse-midwife with a master of science in nursing, but her main focus at Lily Aesthetics remains complementing each client's skin and eye tone with suitable color palettes.
The aestheticians at Vanish administer dozens of facial treatments that keep skin looking young and healthy. Depending on the client's goals, they might apply one of five chemical peels or one of five facials, such as a gentlemen's facial or deep-clarifying acne facial. For more intense makeovers, a physician applies cosmetic injectables such as Botox. Additionally, Vanish's staff beautifies clients' minds with acupuncture treatments and guided meditation sessions.
Every morning, the lotus flower surfaces from the murky water and unfurls its brilliant petals in the sun’s warmth.

The spa's team attempts to help patrons blossom, drawing out inner beauty in minimalist rooms to help create a calm and peaceful atmosphere.
During skincare treatments, the staff's medical aesthetician analyzes facial features before refreshing them with products from Botanical Science. Muscles purr smoothly under the hands of a licensed massage therapist, who, unlike an Olympic gymnastics coach, uses pressure to relieve tension.
Advanced DermaCare Inc's founder, Diane D. Lowery, earned a CIDESCO certification in aesthetics while studying at the venerable Clinique La Prairie wellness retreat in Montreux, Switzerland. Although her European education evokes a low-tech, layered approach to facials, Lowery—approaching 30 years as a skin therapist—specializes in the opposite. Her gentle facials promote firm, even tone with pulses of LED light and electro-microcurrents, and exfoliate rough areas with tiny diamond chips or water jets enriched with antioxidants. She attended courses in naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University to develop a holistic view of skin health, and studied ways to turn back the body's clock without triggering early daylight-saving time at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
The licensed specialists at Bella Vita Salon pamper clients with hair, nail, and waxing services. As they cut and color new styles, they strive to match each patron's desired aesthetic, relying on products from Pureology and Redken to complement their manual finesse. As the hosts of private spa and beauty parties, they primp guests with new 'dos, mani-pedis, and one complimentary noogie for each of the birthday girl's years.
