Esthetique's technicians employ a battery of noninvasive devices and solutions to enhance beauty by smoothing and resurfacing skin. Aestheticians administer alpha-hydroxy-acid peels to remedy brown marks or deeply exfoliate with diamond microdermabrasions that even facial texture and fade fine lines. For cheeks battling sieges of blemishes, LED blue-light acne treatments gradually banish clusters of stubborn pimples back to the sinister oil dimension from whence they came. Laser hair removal defoliates follicles from the upper lip to the legs, and VelaShape treatments provide subterranean smoothing by eliminating cellulite and tightening sagging skin on the thighs and buttocks.
Spyros Laser MedSpa draws on its director's 25 years of healing experience to provide guests with state-of-the-art aesthetic procedures. As its name suggests, the center's centerpiece is its Candela GentleYag laser, whose fine-tunable power settings let it zap unwanted hair, smooth wrinkles, and erase varicose veins on all types of skin. Technicians can also calibrate the beam for less-common procedures such as clearing up toenail fungus. Elsewhere, peels, facials, and Botox injections leave faces as smooth and radiant as the porcelain masks worn by all movie stars.

The staff at Perfect Skin Studio understands that unlike shar-pei puppies and time, faces should not have wrinkles. With this in mind, the spa's repertoire of skincare services focuses on combating the signs of aging and stress with the use of paraben-free products. Each service, from acne-clearing teen facials to skin-brightening chemical peels, begins with a consultation to give the aesthetician more information in order to tailor the treatment to individual skin type. The staff also lavishes attention on the rest of the body, giving skin an all-over glow while shaping silhouettes with slimming body wraps. Waxing services ensure clients leave the studio more meticulously groomed than a tribe of obsessive-compulsive chimpanzees.
