Jeanne knows firsthand the power of anti-aging treatments. Though the aesthetician admits to being of a certain age, she?s maintained a youthful appearance with the help of hydropeptides. After her first treatment, Jeanne thought, ?Oh my God?if it works for me at this age, it can work for anyone else.?
Beyond appreciating skincare's results, Jeanne understands how it works. She knows that keeping skin in top shape requires more than just a facial every once in a while. That?s why she couples all of her treatments with skincare tips, such as what ingredients to look for in skincare products, nutrition tips for healthy complexions, and which microdermabrasion crystals make for the prettiest earrings. ?I want them to be knowledgeable,? she says of her clients. ?I want them to have the power and know what?s going on.?
At Willow Medical Spa for Women, the staff has a two-tiered focus: women?s health and women?s beauty.

Her range of services includes menopausal health, contraceptive options, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. At her side are Krista Todd, a medical-aesthetics practitioner and medical assistant, and Dana Higgins, a medical assistant. Together, they staff the aesthetics branch of Willow Medical Spa for Women. In this domain, they perform such services as Exilis body sculpting to flatten unwanted curves and Whisper dry laser peels to abate facial wrinkles.
At Tan Republic, the staff doesn't just sit by while you tan?they advocate for responsible tanning. Within the upscale and modern salons, they carefully oversee the use the latest tanning equipment, including Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths as well as the high-pressure tanning beds, controlling clients' exposure to UV rays and cosmetic tanning compounds. They also ensure that every tanner uses FDA-compliant protective eyewear, and prevent any one visitor from wearing multiple pairs and making everyone else feel uncool. They even enhance their clients' tans with six varieties of lotion, each designed to produce a different intensity of bronze.
The aestheticians at Salon 21 soothe chafed cheeks, chapped chins, and generally vexed visages with customized facials using Dermalogica products matched to skin types. The one-hour European facial kicks off with a pore-polishing cleanse and then it banishes roving free radicals with an antioxidant hydration treatment. An exfoliating massage sloughs off last season's out-of-style cells, and the facial mask offers the perfect disguise for a ball. Arms and hands emit a relaxed sigh during a massage, delicate peeper and kisser areas soak up a special salve, and skin is left rejuvenated and dewy like a newborn baby resting in a front yard. Clients with specific conditions, such as acne or a permanent-marker mustache, receive a treatment tailored to their needs.
