Today, she works out of Masters Salons, a studio space where she performs everything from haircuts and Brazilian blowouts to waxing and laser hair removal.

Personalized care and patient education are top priorities at Nelson Dermatology. Here, Dr. Jennell Nelson work with visitors to address and prevent skin issues like eczema or rosacea and conduct cosmetic treatments for faces and bodies. Such treatments might include chemical peels, which can help with wrinkles and uneven skin tone, or fillers such as Radiesse, ideal for treating smile lines and frown lines.
While the office is designed to be comfortable and friendly, the practice strives to offer as many modern conveniences as possible, including a web site that allows patients to book appointments online instead of by courier-turtle.
Looking good and feeling good should go hand in hand, which is why the staff at Dante Salon & Wellness Spa has compiled a list of services that go beyond beauty to help treat full-body health. As stylists smother strands in products from Goldwell and Paul Mitchell, the in-house chiropractor stays busy addressing the needs of those suffering from chronic pain, using tender techniques that can include neuromuscular therapy or sport-specific stretches. Meanwhile, aestheticians coddle skin in Image Skincare professional products that soak into pores to remove dirt and exfoliate away dead skin cells before they have a chance to rise again as undead skin cells. Those looking to thwart wrinkles at the source can schedule a consultation with the onsite aesthetic-medicine physician, who can recommend injections of Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane or write a prescription for Latisse for those looking to fill up sparse lash lines.

A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.

Skin creams, laser treatments, and microdermabrasions are now part and parcel of her practice, along with weight-loss assistance and paleo/primal diet plans, which teach patients to live and eat like our ancient ancestors, minus all the dinosaur riding.
