The staff at Louisville Laser and Spa gives a decidedly simple answer when its patients ask the best way to maintain skin: daily care and healthy living. Its services—many of them designed to make skin look younger—only serve to expedite the process. Administered by an advanced nurse practitioner or an aesthetician, the treatments include laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, chemical peels, pigment removal, spider vein removal, tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion. The spa's most popular option, laser hair removal uses beams of light to reduce and remove unwanted hair on the body. In addition to skincare, technicians use Botox to freeze facial muscles so that wrinkles soften and amateur ventriloquists finally can reach the next level. Louisville Laser and Spa also offers professional teeth whitening.

At 528 Wellness, Sheri and Joseph Shields optimize bodily operations and clear interiors of harmful toxins with an assortment of vigor-boosting treatments. FDA-approved TurboSonic whole-body vibration platforms headline the shop's lineup, shimmying bodies with sound waves that activate contractions in various muscle groups, spur metabolism, and help biceps find the bass their debut album lacked. Tootsies wiggle side-to-side with a chi spinal relaxation machine, which increases range of motion and encourages oxygen absorption for more tranquil sleep with passive aerobic exercise. Thermal massage treatments ease aches with gliding rollers and radiant far-infrared energy, and can be accentuated by red or blue LED therapy to promote skin-smoothing collagen production or eliminate acne-causing bacteria. 528 Wellness also lures environmental toxins out through footbaths that use ionic action to draw impurities from the feet in much the same way pool lifeguards eliminate robotic invaders by goading them to cannonball into the deep end.
A luxurious interior welcomes men to Weldon Barber, which blends a warm, modern aesthetic with rustic accents, such as a fireplace tucked into a stone wall. While waiting for a cut or shave, guests sink into plush leather chairs and sip complimentary coffee, cola, or bottled water while feasting eyes on a flat-screen TV or a selection of men's magazines.
During signature haircuts—the shop’s bread and butter—stylists commence to pamper with a shampoo and a scalp massage before snipping away extraneous strands to craft a custom haircut inspired by a favorite celebrity or janitorial mop. A delicate detailing of brows, ears, and the nose eliminates rogue facial hairs, and a hot face towel and neck shave leave visages smooth. Clients can pair cuts with a timesaver or a signature shave to quickly and comprehensively free jawlines of five o’clock shadows. Throughout the entire andro-aesthetic adventure, stylists lavish clients with Aveda, Jack Black, and American Crew products.
Licensed and certified massage practitioner Jacquie Cass understands that sometimes it takes a little more than her hands to work out the kinks of an achy body. During her cold-stone-therapy massages, she uses chilled stones plucked out of Bizarro World volcanoes to help remedy the pain of sports injuries, swelling, inflammation, and sinus problems. She also promotes relaxation in clients through their noses with more than 70 therapeutic-grade blends of fragrant essential oils, which she uses alongside Swedish strokes for complete tranquility. Vitality Massage Therapy’s menu of modalities also proves that Jacquie can ease aches the old-fashioned way, performing Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release massage techniques to target each client’s specific sore spots.
At The Healing Hut, dedicated aesthetician Loni draws on her time at the Euro Institute of Skin Care and Gene Juarez Academy, as well as her interest in diet and alternative healing, to provide a comprehensive menu of holistic spa services. With certifications in reflexology, manual lymphatic drainage, and reiki, Loni can tailor treatments to address a range of woes, including sports injuries, facial tension, or sore hands from vigorous crossword solving. Aesthetic boosts include waxing, facials, and lash extensions, and Loni also combines spa services with healing approaches in treatments such as a reflexology pedicure. Located within Wink: A Salon, the spa’s cream-colored interiors bathe clients in the calm of a cotton-ball factory, and a full coffee bar adds extra spring to the steps of refreshed visitors.
Shortly after earning her license as an aesthetician, Angie discovered her distaste for the sprawling spas in which found herself working. She yearned for a more private sanctum—a place that would allow her to care for only one client at a time.
With this image in mind, she founded Radiant You Esthetics inside The Main Touch Massage and Wellness Center and began to fill her service menu with specialized facials and waxing services. To better understand her clients' individual concerns, Angie kicks off every appointment with a customized skin evaluation. Her facials and other skin treatments incorporate Epicuren products that work to diminish signs of aging, such as cheeks flushed from blowing out too many birthday candles at once.
