The highly trained staff at HLC Med Advanced Laser and Skin Care harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
The specialists at American Skin Care focus on eliminating skin issues with advanced technology and products from Pevonia, PCA Skin, GlyMed, and Catherine Hinds. A trained esthetician commences each treatment with a thorough skin analysis, which helps to pinpoint areas of concern. Estheticians then craft a customized beauty plan, which can incorporate facials, body treatments, or staring contests against Snow White’s mirror. Of the many services offered, the American Skin Care technicians boast four body treatments that can further nourish the skin, such as the exfoliating sea-salt glo treatment that’s infused with essential oils and performed in a steam room.
Kathi and Anthony Jeannetti of Anthony Fredrick Salon & Day Spa have lived in the Dedham area their whole lives. Their strong local ties are evident in the warm, convivial atmosphere of their salon, where they welcome guests from near and far with a host of custom hair, skin, and nail services. In slight contrast to the salon’s down-home vibes is its décor, which evokes an element of the exotic with its hanging lamps and a mosaic-lined mirror that would be at home in a Mondrian painting.
Those decorative touches serve to illuminate and reflect the sleek tresses shaped by a staff of professional stylists, who clip hair into fashionable cuts before locking in moisture with MoroccanOil conditioners. The spa’s aestheticians and massage therapists practice their craft in the relaxing confines of private treatment rooms, where Pevonia Skincare's natural ingredients nourish pores during facials, and smooth strokes reduce stresses in one of four modalities: Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and pregnancy. Calming music enhances the spa’s soothing beauty treatments, drowning out the buzz of overworked minds and the honking of cars pacing impatiently in the parking lot.
Equipped with Aveda's botanically based products, Terra Spa's team of aestheticians rejuvenates skin and coddles bodies with facials, massages, mani-pedis, waxes, and other beautifying services. Aestheticians draw on their training with Aveda and SkinCeuticals products while performing Aveda's Elemental nature facial, which combines product mixtures with kneading techniques and Aveda rituals. Each treatment is specifically tailored to individual conditions, such as wrinkles, dryness, and excessive oil. Meanwhile, Aveda makeup and Shavasana eyelash extensions are called upon to ready clients for nights on the town.
Terra Spa's small boutique lends itself to one-on-one attention as the staff balances chakras through massages. Combining deep-tissue techniques on the back with reflexology on the feet and Aveda's Chakra Balancing blend, the treatment leaves patrons walking away stress-free and energized.
Healthy Fun Fitness's licensed massage therapist and team of aestheticians help root out aches and restore beauty by tailoring massages and facials to clients' needs. The 60-minute massages help dispatch tension and unknot sinewy cat's cradles with one of four modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone. Each massage is customized to meet the client's needs, allowing the massage therapists to zero in on trouble spots or paint an invisible, body-sized fresco using freestyle strokes. Alternatively, the signature stress-melting massage helps to awaken and harmonize the body with a stress-dispatching blend of Swedish-style massage and moist heat designed to gelatinize muscles into the consistency of marshmallow-coated lutefisk. The 60-minute facial can be adapted to every skin type, and is customized to each client's needs after a consultation helps outline a skin diagnosis. The personalized treatments amalgamate active ingredients sourced from the sea and from plants to moisturize skin and a restore the type of radiant glow typically reserved for schools of oceanic jack-o-lanterns.
