Skin is the body's largest organ, say the pros at Anti-Aging Aesthetics, so skincare "is not just about looking good." Serving as a barrier against bacteria and toxins, and bearing the brunt of environmental stressors, skin deserves to be treated kindly and the spa's estheticians rise to that challenge. Facials, LED therapy, peels, and microdermabrasion are among the dermal pampering processes here. There's something for almost every part of the body, like the "back facial" that cleanses dorsal pores and smooths out wrinkled "kick me" signs.
A Touch of Spa doesn’t just help customers feel more confident in their appearance, it aims to pack in the relaxation of a mini-vacation into each visit. Inside private treatment rooms, while soft music plays and trained bald eagles fan the air, aestheticians ease tension from muscles with seven massage modalities, including a method that incorporates bamboo and Chinese cupping techniques. They also soothe skin with several European-style facials: signature facials with lavender cleanser and a juniper and tea tree mask, pore-cleansing facials with Lotus Moon products, and collagen facials with acai extracts. In addition to boasting experience in a variety of skin care and bodywork techniques, many of the licensed aestheticians at A Touch of Spa are also bilingual.
Under the guidance of Dr. Vitality D. Gavrikov, Beauty Skin Laser’s aestheticians rejuvenate their patients’ skin with a range of medical-grade treatments. Their array of cosmetic lasers, chemical peels, and body wraps rid bodies of any number of aesthetic blemishes, including unwanted hair, signs of aging, sun spots, and stubborn fat deposits.
Inside Lavender Med Spa's warmly lit suite, ornaments, paintings, and decorative mirrors festoon the walls. Besides looking nice, the mirrors actually serve a purpose: to show patrons their newly younger-looking selves staring back. The med spa works alongside one of Atlanta's top plastic surgeons, Dr. Morgan Davoudi, and specializes in anti-aging treatments, from brightening facials and medical-grade Revitalize peels to Botox injections and noninvasive ReFirme skin-tightening sessions. Similarly noninvasive are the spa's YAG, Alexandrite, and Diode lasers, which can remove unwanted hair from any type of skin as long as it's not made of mirrors.
Marbled floors and a tiled reception desk reflect the glimmer of retro patterned lamps as essential oils perfume the Sweet Serenity Beauty Bar's lobby. Veteran beauty worker Nicole oversees technicians who dab nails with gel and standard OPI polishes, offering the guarantee of a free touch-up if regular polish chips within three days or gel polish chips within seven.
The salon's technicians also beautify skin with organic green-tea products, whisk away hair with hypoallergenic French hard wax, and exfoliate orange rinds from faces with fruit-enzyme peels.
