As the owner of Smooth as Silk, Inc., Kathy Weishaar performs every hair-removal treatment herself. And as a registered nurse and certified technician of intense-pulsed-light technology, she knows how to operate the FDA-approved Palomar MediLux IPL equipment, which removes unwanted hair from the face, body, and limbs before it becomes too long or qualifies for national-park status. With similar attentiveness, Kathy also performs skin-rejuvenation treatments that help to revive blemished or damaged skin of all shades and sensitivities.
The knowledgeable aestheticians at Sky Skin Center fend off unwanted follicles, signs of aging, and skin conditions with an assortment of spa and laser treatments. During laser hair-removal sessions, strand assassins take aim at unsightly bristles with Candela GentleMax or Palomar lasers, allowing patients to become perfectly drag-free for Olympic slip 'n' slide time trials. Med-spa treatments—such as chemical peels, photofacials, vascular treatments, and microdermabrasion—tackle conditions as varied as rosacea, acne scarring, and sun damage. Skin-lift injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse, restore visages' youthful appearance, and soothing facials and massages ease muscle tension caused by trying to dead-lift 50-pound sunglasses.
It's all about the face at Northshore Electrology & Esthetics. At the beauty hotspot, the aestheticians offer a wide range of facials and peels that both cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. The alpha hydroxy peel whisks away dead skin cells to brighten the complexion, and the European facial unclogs pores, which boosts blood circulation and rids faces of excess oils. Upping the ante, the Ultrasonic facial minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines with low ultrasonic waves, a more effective method than pressing them under a copy of the Oxford Dictionary.
Pamper Me Skin Care?s epidermis experts combine elements of nature and modern technology to restore skin?s youthful allure. The spa?s menu of more than 25 facial treatments renews nose-and-cheek placeholders with natural ingredients?such as pineapple enzymes, goat's milk, and lavender oil?or fights signs of aging with DermaSound?s ultrasonic waves and LED light therapy. For especially troubled skin, aestheticians turn treatments up a notch with glycolic- and lactic-acid peels, whose deep exfoliation can whittle a rough-skinned alligator into a smooth dolphin. Pamper Me Skin Care?s team also employs products from its own skincare line, as well as Rhonda Allison and GlyMed Plus.
Aside from facial treatments, Sudatonic infrared body wraps slim down silhouettes, and waxing and IPL hair-removal sessions oust unwanted fuzz and improve the body?s aerodynamics for faster street-luge-to-work times. Guests can also indulge in all-day pampering packages or mix-and-match treatments for custom relaxation sessions.
Under the medical direction of a board-certified dermatologist, certified laser technician and licensed electrologist Nancy Ramsdell helps patients revamp their skin surfaces at New Image Laser Hair Removal. She's been practicing electrolysis since electricity was discovered in 1984 and confidently stages microdermabrasion and Pelleve skin tightening treatments as well. During laser hair-removal sessions, she uses a Candela GentleLase laser to rid skin of excess hair with noninvasive beams.
The aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions. More advanced counterparts use low-level electrical and sonic frequencies to boost skin elasticity and rid the dermal surface of bacteria and pigmentation.
