Highlighted by a black-and-white color scheme, high ceilings, and exposed ductwork, Erika Taylor Urban Spa’s industrial aesthetic stands in contrast to its botanically based spa treatments. And though the skincare and massage services involve plant-based emollients, they also leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies. For instance, HydraFacials resurface skin and deliver an intense dose of moisture via an instrument that loosens and lifts away dull skin cells by creating a vortex. Hair and nail treatments round out the service menu, helping clients become beautiful from head to dewclaw.
Dr. Geoffrey Polen supervises Advanced Laser Skin Center’s team of experienced and qualified aestheticians as they use prescription-strength skincare products to minimize blemishes and signs of aging. Visitors to either of the center's two locations recline on treatment chairs in private rooms while aestheticians renovate their skin. The staff also polishes complexions with medical-grade facials, such as microdermabrasion treatments that suck away debris with a miniature vacuum and medical peels that swipe away blemishes, flatten wrinkles, administer necessary injections, and erase monocles drawn in permanent marker. Each visit is intended to help patients leave their visit completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
At Posh Nail Company's Dublin location, the team believes spa treatments should accentuate natural beauty and embrace natural techniques. As a result, the nail gurus exclusively seek out nontoxic products, lining their shelves with organic skincare balms that feature everything from moisturizing botanical extracts to pure almond oil. Harsh chemical agents have no place in this environment, and the staff members even refuse to use acetone when removing polish because of the unnatural drying effects. To further demonstrate their commitment to eco-friendly practices, the technicians perform waterless manicures and shake hands with every squirrel they see.
Advanced Medical Laser Center's owner and certified cosmetic therapist, Cindy Joshi, expertly zaps fuzz from clients with quick pulses from a GentleYag or Gentlelase laser. For darker skin types, she wields the Cynosure Apogee Elite, which includes a NdYag mode for darker skin types. During each appointment, Cindy glides the laser’s beams over skin, where it blasts more than 100 hairs per second, like an insult comedian whose childhood was ruined by one bad haircut. In addition to evicting follicular skin invaders from epidermal terrains, Cindy is experienced in microdermabrasion, licensed in micropigmentation, and certified in cosmetic therapy.
The staff at Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center's Dublin location, soon opening a location in Grandview, is dedicated to balancing body and mind. To do this, aestheticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists offer a slew of aesthetic and holistic services, including hot-stone therapy, acupuncture, facials, all-natural mani-pedis, infrared sauna sessions, and signature herbal body wraps that are soaked and heated to 150 degrees. The center also pampers clients with its use of high-end products including BareMinerals and HydroPeptides skin care lines.
At Health Choices, licensed massage therapist BabaaRitah Clark helps encourage wellness of body, mind, and spirit alike with therapeutic massage services. Her broad range of specialties includes sports massage, deep-tissue massage, aromatherapy, and trigger-point therapy.
