Rejuvenation Medi-Spa‘s professional team, which includes a board-certified surgeon and a medical aesthetician with 13 years of experience¬, helps patrons enhance exteriors with treatments ranging from IPL hair removal to laser vein therapy. The clinic wields technology as cutting edge as a solar-powered broadsword to diminish birthmarks and sun damage with photorejuvenation or scarring and stretch marks with nonsurgical microdermabrasion. Patients try to improve skin elasticity with Juvederm treatments or employ FDA-approved Botox to fight frown lines brought on by being a professional wedding objector. In addition to medical treatments, Rejuvenation Medi-Spa primps humans with individually applied NovaLash eyelash extensions and customized SunFX airbrush tans.
At Sweetpea Spa & Gifts, staff members analyze clients' skin types and gauge their degrees of muscle woe so they can design services that best suit visitors' needs. Botanically based medical-grade products rain down on kissers during the custom facial's exfoliation treatment, which scrubs away dead skin cells and velcro earrings. The facial cleanse then reduces fine lines and hydrates skin to create polished complexions. During the massage, Swedish-style strokes team with deep-tissue techniques to assuage muscle tension. Gliding effleurage strokes stimulate circulation and prepare muscles for deeper pressure designed to overthrow tyrannical muscle knots. The massage loosens up muscles to help to prevent injury and forestall muscular discomfort caused by playing an accordion with one's shoulder blades. The spa's adjoining gift shop collects products that can be used to summon tranquility during luxurious moments alone.
Dr. Roy Heron, a bariatric specialist and veteran member of numerous local medical societies, helps patients attain svelte, healthy physiques through personalized weight-loss plans that highlight his signature low-carbohydrate philosophy. Backed by a motivating staff of nutritional counselors, Dr. Heron had performed more than 1,100 SmartLipo procedures and lends his extensive medical wisdom to the customized programs, each of which is tailored around clients’ unique health histories, dietary habits, and jumping-jack preferences. Tools such as BMI assessments, B12 injections, and appetite suppressants assist patients throughout the program, and minimally invasive laser treatments can help augment results by trimming lingering fat. To further fortify results, Dr. Heron can give thoughtful recommendations on valuable local services, such as health spas, fitness clubs, superhero meetings, and dermatology offices.
Under the skin-smoothing guidance of Dr. George K. Verghese, Mid-Atlantic Skin Surgery Institute's team of experienced specialists aims to reduce unwanted wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, blemishes, and more with the Lumenis M22 intense pulsed light (IPL) skin-rejuvenation treatment. During the IPL session, damaged skin is treated noninvasively through a series of precise, pain-free light pulses that typically last about 20 minutes. Each pulse helps banish blemishes and lightens brown pigment deposits, leaving faces smoother than a hockey rink hand-planed by the man who hand-planes every Jenga set.
At Kissed by the Sun Spa, relaxation is key. Treatment rooms are surrounded by candles to help create a calm atmosphere as soon as customers walk in the door. The spa’s pampering treatments help clients further unwind, and include custom facials, relaxing massage or lomilomi massages, luxurious scrubs with bourbon and brown sugar, or a facial mask made with natural ingredients such as green tea or oat milk. Resurfacing Solutions facials tackle fine lines and wrinkles, and are tailored for each individual's unique skin type.
Kissed by the Sun's body scrub begins with a layer of hot towels, each one soaked in whole milk. A paste of bourbon and brown sugar comes next, exfoliating the body and making it smell like Kentucky. Finally, shea butter infuses pores with intense moisture. Though this is just one of several luxurious body treatments, it hits at the heart of Kissed by the Sun's mission: to make skin healthy and radiant. Facials also go beyond the ordinary, incorporating uncommon ingredients such as phytohormones, retinol, and fruit acids. When aestheticians perform chemical peels, they use PCA Skin products that gently eliminate dull tissues and stimulate cell regeneration. Kissed by the Sun's beauty professionals work inside Elijah Blue Salon & Retreat and also on the go, traveling to homes and offices for spa parties.
Staff members at Aqua Ice Salon and Day Spa eradicate tension and enhance skin with icy, exhilarating sensations in a range of soothing spa treatments. Visitors begin their spa day by bundling up in a fluffy robe and heading into a secluded treatment room, where a therapist swathes skin in a peppermint body wrap. Packed with detoxifying seaweed extract, the wrap claims to allay cellulite and aid in weight loss, as warmth followed by a tingling peppermint-seaweed lotion brings out goosebumps to impress any fowl nesting in the vicinity. Staff members scrub and massage feet with arctic-inspired products during the icy-cool foot massage, and corpuses receive either a warm, steamy massage or an inflammation-allaying ice-therapy massage, culminating in the application of a chilly gel to commemorate the many snowmen lost at the end of winter. After a gentle trimming, shaping, and polishing of fingers and toes, a delicious lunch—tailored to omnivores or herbivores—crowns the soothing six-hour experience. Alternately, bodies can find speedier tension-taming in a fastidious body and foot massage, including the same chilly extremity scrubbing and muscle-melting choice of aromatic steam or ice therapy.
