Elementz Salon and Spa's team of stylists and skin therapists beautify bodies in airy chambers reminiscent of an Italian villa. Facials begin with a skin assessment, which informs a custom cleansing regimen that extracts impurities, refreshes pores with steam and masking, and soothes tense neck muscles with massage. Throughout one-hour Swedish massages, therapists locate and destroy aches with the modality's five flowing strokes and the Terminator's laser-sight sunglasses, kneading knots with firm petrissage pressure and gliding along limbs during circulation-boosting effleurage. During deep-conditioning treatments, stylists saturate tresses with antioxidant-rich salves from Moroccanoil or vegan, plant-derived tonics from Pureology. These potions cling to strands, restoring each mane's natural, silky luster and thunderous roar.
JaggedEDGE Salon's enthusiastic, style-savvy staff performs a bounty of services powered by premium Redken and Pureology products. Lock-locked ladies can pair a cut and style ($36 and up) with an all-over color ($52 and up) or add a permanent wave or curl to their standard look ($82 and up). For finer follicular particulars, the salon also offers extensions by the strand ($6 and up per strand), eyebrow-accurate tinting ($20 and up), and waxing ($15 and up). With the generous value of today's Groupon, gracious guests should have no trouble covering multiple alterations in a single visit. Appointments are required, so phone ahead before stopping in.
Final Inches' board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Motoki, uses an FDA-approved laser to eliminate gym-resistant fat cells. Following an initial consultation, Liposculpture patients receive a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The doctor then injects a paperclip-sized cannula equipped with an FDA-approved laser that melts reserves of fat. Afterward, a small stitch, band-aid, or mother's kiss closes the booboo. Most patients can return to work the next day with minimal swelling, soreness, and bruising compared to the week-long effects of traditional liposuction. Four to six weeks of donning a compression garment or of being a camel aids fluid retention to minimize swelling in treated areas.
