Jazmin Spa, which has locations throughout the Atlanta area, caters to its clients' cosmetic needs while still indulging them with a luxurious spa experience. Its massage therapists provide a brief reprieve from everyday stress by using an assortment of therapeutic modalities to soothe tense muscles. Microdermabrasion wands conceal common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, uneven tone, and tattoos showing support for the League of Nations. Similarly, its nail technicians elevate straightforward mani-pedi treatments by incorporating anything from warm-lotion massages and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs to peppermint foot soaks and heated basalt stones.
Indulgence isn't the only goal, though—the aestheticians also strive to create dramatic cosmetic changes utilizing products that can't be purchased by the general public as well as advanced spa procedures. PCA peels, which are only administered by licensed healthcare professionals that have been trained to use them, help resurface skin.
It would probably be more efficient to ask Joan Bell Carroll about what she doesn't do. As the founder of Browz Makeup Bar, she is, of course, a makeup artist and aesthetician, but her skill set includes more than just creating a pretty face. She is also a licensed aesthetics instructor, and teaches courses at Browz on basic and advanced makeup artistry, waxing, and even pole and belly dancing. Inside her studio—a chocolate-hued space accented with pops of orange and blue—she hosts a diverse range of events that includes everything from birthday and lingerie parties to photo shoots and dance classes.
But since opening Browz nearly 20 years ago, Joan's specialty has always been brow and makeup services. She and her team can shape brows however clients prefer, whether by waxing, threading, tweezing, or pixellating. They also remove unwanted hair elsewhere with a complete selection of body waxing treatments. They create flawless skin with airbrush makeup applications, and can lengthen lashes with semi-permanent extensions or temporary strip or individual lashes.
The team at Jevon MedSpa takes a compassionate approach with their clients, based on the example set by their experienced and board-certified internal-medicine physician, Muhammad Abbasi, MD. Dr. Abbasi has earned several Patients' Choice awards for the extensive knowledge and comforting demeanor he shares with every patient. He is also a rheumatologist, and has completed comprehensive certification in the administration of Botox and dermal fillers designed to reduce facial wrinkles.
The doctor and his staff utilize advanced laser technology to remove hair, and they employ Syneron's elōs IPL system to treat damage caused by the sun, aging, or glancing at Medusas. For patients seeking to shed excess pounds, the team can design personalized weight-loss plans and target cellulite with LipoDissolve mesotherapy injections.
The trained therapists at Urban Temple Studio Spa unwind tight spines, smooth skin, and detoxify bodies in the intimate studio. Clients melt into a bed in the private treatment room to the tune of their choice of music, from zen to smooth jazz. During each massage treatment, a therapist tailors kneads to fit the client's pressure preference while helping to improve circulation and detoxify the body.
Other purifying options include hydrotherapy full-body wraps, which purge toxins using herbs, mud, and seaweed. Urban Temple's spa packages offer themed days of relaxation, such as chocolate-centric treatments for 8- to 15-year-olds, indulgent massages and facials for adults, and romantic spa services for couples looking to bond without building an Ikea furnace together.
Licensed and certified massage therapist Sam Worley has worked at a private studio for more than two years and worked for more than nine years, dissolving stress at local spas. He holds certifications in techniques ranging from deep-tissue to Thai massage, all of which are now available at Massage Harmony, his private studio in Decatur.
Sam never begins a massage without first holding a consultation?a policy that helps him figure out which muscles to concentrate on. Once he's devised a treatment plan, his nimble fingers set to work improving circulation with gentle Swedish strokes, prenatal techniques, or even heated stones. He can enhance any of these sessions with aromatherapy oils.
SynChi Holistic Wellness Center's services live at the intersection of traditional healing techniques and scientifically inspired treatments. Crystal healing sessions, reiki, and reflexology all aim to restore harmony and balance by refocusing the body's inner energies. On the other end of the spectrum, ionic footbaths and pulsed-electromagnetic-field therapy channel technology in the pursuit of detoxification. Therapeutic massages relieve tension-laden musculature, and hypnotherapy can help reduce the urges that contribute to bad habits, such as smoking, overeating, and training a parrot to recite your Social Security number.
