Albany Dermatology's board-certified dermatologists help clients maintain healthy, lustrous skin. With the nonsurgical microdermabrasion treatment, a highly controlled spray of fine crystals lifts away layers of dead skin cells to leave faces feeling smooth. Without the excess stockpiles of dull cells, the skin will show its true pigmentation, appearing more vibrant and even toned and allowing for easier application of makeup. The treatment takes around 20 minutes, making it a suitable way to refresh during lunch hours or to avoid the first two-thirds of a sitcom and skip straight to the hugging. In addition to relieving skin-cell ailments, the clinic also offers cosmetic procedures such as cutaneous surgery, Botox, and sclerotherapy.
Since 1998, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael P. Butler has run his practice with a strong focus on getting to know his patients' situations and problems before beginning treatment. Rather than rushing into one of the center's various services, each appointment starts off with an assessment designed to help prescribe customized courses of action and determine if patients have a vestigial tail. Dr. Butler and his team of spinal superheroes then use spinal adjustments, applied kinesiology, cold-laser therapy, and other treatments to remedy ailments ranging from chronic back pain to headaches, stress, and general fatigue.
Let the experienced aestheticians at Serenity Salon & Spa defuzz dermis with a round of laser hair-removal sessions. Customers can feel the fur-felling power of light beams on their choice of three areas, including underarms ($200), abdomens ($200), and standard bikini lines ($250). Each nearly painless laser blast lasts 15 to 30 minutes, depending on skin and hair type. Space all three treatments out to maximize effectiveness and test follicles' long-term memories. Since obstinate stubble can require six to eight sessions to achieve long-lasting results, smoothness-seekers have the option to purchase two of today's Groupons. Results may vary with different skin and hair types, but a pre-treatment consultation will determine the best course of action from patient to patient.
At their location within Women’s Health Medi-Spa & Aesthetics, Tooth Fairies Teeth Whitening’s specialists transform smiles into beacons for compliments with their in-office treatments.

Tooth Fairies Teeth Whitening also takes its services on the road, traveling to parties, special events, and fundraisers.
According to Elizabeth Harris, adipose expert and developer of the CelluSleek body-contouring system, "99% of women have cellulite." This unwelcome tissue can reveal itself in the form of "dimples to full-on hail damage," she describes. To combat cellulite, the CelluSleek handpiece glides over affected areas, drawing in skin with gentle suction power and a hypnotizing stare and kneading it with three rotating balls. This unique massage stretches connective tissues and stimulates lymph flow, causing flesh to lie flatter and tighter than before.
Drawing on an arsenal of natural Aveda products and med-spa technology, the staff at Pure Skin and Body tackles tension and skin trouble with a variety of procedures. The salon specializes in a range of laser treatments, in which trained technicians wield focused beams of light to remove sun spots, dissolve multicolor tattoos, and prove to their parents that not only super villains use lasers for a living.
Aestheticians complement laser sessions with depilating waxing or threading treatments, organic or microdermabrasion facials, and permanent-makeup application. They can also help to augment health naturally with vitamin-supplement kits, which customize vitamin intake based on medical analysis to strengthen hair, skin, and nails like a doctor’s birthday wish. Carried on air rich with the scents of aromatherapy, slow sighs drift through the salon, emanating from patrons undergoing hot-stone massages.
