An infrared laser tightens skin by stimulating collagen growth, diminishing the appearance of fine lines. The nonsurgical process is just one of Vitality Laser Spa’s treatments, but it's representative of the rest: beautifying services that incur little to no downtime afterward. Because beauty treatments, like chicken soup, should only be handled by people with medical training, a clinical aesthetician and laser specialist performs each of these services under the supervision of a medical director. Their other specialties include removing hair with a laser, plumping fine lines with a collagen mask, and treating cellulite with infrared light and radio-frequency energy.
Salon Revive’s stylists customize haircuts for men, women, teens, and children inside a calming, earth-toned atmosphere punctuated by live plants and woodwork. During each service, be it a trim or a full-color application, they use a number of popular, high-end products such as Schwarzkopf color, Keratin smoothing formulas, and MoroccanOil that boosts hair’s health and sheen. The salon also offers microdermabrasion treatments, waxing services, and nail services including pedicures and gel manicures. Salon Revive is open six days a week (Monday–Saturday).
Ani Miryala started learning ancient-Indian skincare techniques at an age when most people think "acne" is the misspelling of a Road-Runner plot. Surrounded by uncles who were practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine, Miryala immersed herself in the noninvasive organic methods taught at the family beauty school, eventually opening a spa with her three sisters. As Kate Hamilton of Skin Inc. magazine reported in 2008, Miryala now owns one of the largest female-operated companies in southern India and has brought time-honored Indian traditions to the United States at Anoo's Herbal Day Spa and a dozen other locations worldwide.
The aesthetician and published author has amassed a team of licensed specialists that rejuvenates minds and bodies with chemical-free treatments. Hair-removal technicians refine 80–120 eyebrows per day with signature threading services, leaving behind more clearly defined arches than a freshly poured sidewalk. Pesticide-free fruits and vegetables nourish skin during Indian facials, and natural peels and herbal-microdermabrasion techniques leave faces smooth and glowing. To combat stress, the crew massages muscles with an ancient herbal-wheat-dough method that turns muscles into soft, buttery loaves of relaxation.
Thanks to the certified aestheticians and laser technicians at Natural Beauty Laser, clients don’t have to rely on good genes or even a rigorous daily regimen to achieve clear skin. The center’s staff uses advanced implements such as the FDA-approved ND:YAG Cutera and Syneron Candela lasers, which permanently removes stubble from notoriously hairy areas, such as the chest and inner cheek. Other treatments combat cellulite via ultrasonic cavitation or minimize the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation with intense pulsed light.
The Beauty Spot’s European-trained aestheticians refresh faces with a bevy of beautifying treatments, ensuring customers look exponentially more radiant during sidewalk strolls and smiling glances. Each 60-minute European facial infuses an array of rejuvenating agents deep into pores to empty pockets of dirt. A restoring exfoliation pulls back a curtain of dulled dermis to reveal a fresh new face, while an extraction shoos away blackheads, whiteheads, and Deadheads jamming beneath the skin. The facial then ends with a massage. The 30-minute microdermabrasion bids further farewell to dull, dying skin with a noninvasive resurfacing treatment that reduces large pores and diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and remnants from face-first interstellar trips through asteroid belts. Treatments also help diminish hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and age spots.
