Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
From offices in the US and Canada, laser techs at International Laser Therapy Centers work to empower people to live more healthfully. Using only the power of low-level lasers, they work to help clients lose weight or quit smoking by aiming the light beams at specific areas throughout. This works to increase endorphin levels to create a sustained calming effect, which may decrease the urge to overeat or smoke due to stress, as well as make it easier to overcome temptation during diets or nicotine detoxes. Staffers also work to give excess weight the boot via noninvasive infrared body wraps, which target deep tissues with thermal heat in the hopes of dissolving the body’s store of fat and marshmallow fluff. Furthermore, a 24-hour support line works in conjunction with in-spa treatments to motivate clients to reach their goals.
At Creative Skin Care, medical aestheticians recognize the fundamental link between health and beauty. Extensive backgrounds in both cosmetic and clinical care have trained them to seek the root of beauty issues in the deeper well-being of the body. Complimentary skin analyses allow skin-care experts to eschew "quick fixes" and "iron helmets" for in-depth beautification campaigns that might incorporate massage, salicylic-acid treatments, and oxygenation. Aestheticians are masters of lasers, whether they are directing the Palomar IPL laser at little melanin bull's-eyes within hair follicles or wielding the Alma Harmony XL laser to rout spider veins with little discomfort and no downtime.
A 16-paddle laser light traverses the skin's surface, penetrating fat cells in order to prompt them to release their contents. iSlimQuick Laser Spa’s iSlim lipo procedure is designed to smooth the appearance of cellulite and tighten skin without needles or post-procedure downtime. All this happens as the client reclines comfortably and listens to relaxing music. They can also increase results after treatments by working out or moving all of a caveman’s rocks around as a joke.
Derma-Luxe's comfortable beds and private treatment rooms provide a welcoming setting to have the deft hands of a trained aesthetician work over your face's outer layer. Choose from three treatments. A microdermabrasion facial (a $150 value) lasts one hour and consists of a deep pore cleansing, gentle resurfacing with microdermabrasion, steam hydration, extractions, and a soothing mask. A Jessner peel (a $150 value) lasts 30 minutes and can be tailored to suit skin sensitivity. Three chemical blends of kojic acid lighten and brighten your skull cover for a refreshed, gleaming visage. The final option is LumiFacial therapy (a $175 value), consisting of 45 minutes of infrared facial immersion. The light produced by LED lamps helps increase the production of collagen and elastin for cheeks as firm and flexible as a rubber yoga instructor. The therapy can be tailored to treat different conditions, including aging, acne, redness, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation.
Helmed by board-certified physician Dr. Matteo Taerri and Jeannie Blom, MD and Zach Bird, MD, Advanced Anti-Aging & Aesthetic Medicine soothes visages and erases years with noninvasive cosmetic treatments. Iron out unwanted creases with a 20-minute stretch mark-removal treatment, which uses injections or a laser to plot against the aesthetic tyranny of stretch marks on the lower belly, upper belly, arms, chest, lower back, upper back, or breast. Three treatments are recommended to see results. Alternately, the 20- to 45-minute SkinTyte treatment warms inner layers of skin with infrared radiation, which promotes collagen production and the wearing of short shorts. SkinTyte technicians can target a small area—such as the neck, hands, chin, feet, or lower face (a $220 value)—or smooth a larger swath of skin, such as the upper or lower arms, upper or lower thighs, under knees, belly, chest, breasts, lower or upper back (a $300 value). Four or five treatments at two-week intervals are generally required to chase all crevasses from a patch of skin terrain; to deliver on this goal, clients can acquire up to three Groupons or the Internet's supply of Bitcoins.
