Massage may be useful for alleviating pent-up stress and tension, but the certified therapists at Life Bodyworks also rely on certain massage modalities to relieve pain and restore holistic balance. Massage therapists work with each client to discover what sorts of ailments they are experiencing, allowing them to design a custom treatment regimen that addresses those issues.
The therapists have a wide variety of massage modalities in their toolbox. The gentle tapping and kneading of Swedish massage can soothe moderate aches while increasing circulation. Deep-tissue pressure focuses a bit further beneath the surface, increasing joints' range of motion and targeting the physical sources of chronic discomfort. For a slightly different approach, the center's reflexology sessions aim to increase a client's overall sense of well-being by releasing the energy blockages that can prevent the organ systems and battery-powered muscles from functioning as efficiently as possible.
The dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurses at American Dermatology Centers are well versed in all dermatological matters, specializing in both cosmetic and medical skin problems. The center's aesthetic arsenal includes V-Beam, GentleLase, SmoothBeam and Q-Yag lasers that are each calibrated to nix blemishes and acne, erase spider veins and scars, and even whisk away unwanted hair and tattoos. The center also treats faces with cosmetic fillers such as wrinkle-reducing Botox, Dysport, and Restylane. More serious epidermal issues are referred to the center’s dermatologists, who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders of the skin, hair and nails including acne, cysts, allergic reactions, skin cancer and melanoma.
At Ideology Skin & Image Clinic, the staff transforms clients' appearances without ever putting them under the knife. The laser technicians and aestheticians work to nonsurgically banish the skin's flaws and signs of aging using an arsenal of lasers and advanced techniques. They employ laser facelifts to boost collagen production and NanoCurrent radiofrequency facelifts to help generate the growth of new cells, both treatments resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin, like that of a newborn naked mole rat. Further perfecting skin surfaces, the team can also aim their lasers at stretch marks, unwanted tattoos, acne, scars, or areas of pigmentation, or rid bodies of unwanted hair.
But before a patient undergoes any treatment, he or she first meets with a team member in a consultation to learn about potential options, ask questions, and find the service that best fits their needs. In any treatment, the staff's twin priorities?achieving tangible results and maintaining patient safety?remain at the forefront of their minds, whether they're performing cosmetic injections or permanent makeup applications.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
