Before co-founding her own medical aesthetics practice, Dr. Marcia V. Byrd studied the intricacies of cosmetic surgery under the direction of internationally respected surgeons such as Dr. Giorgio Fischer, the pioneer of modern liposuction. This venerable training combined with a 20-year career lends the clients of Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center peace of mind during any of the center's transformative aesthetic procedures. Byrd's signature Soft Beautification Peel helps to return complexions to their natural, youthful state by dispersing wrinkles, shallow scarring, and freckles, whether they are natural or the result of an extended nap on a book of braille. Injectible beauty enhancers such as Botox or Juvéderm iron out creases and fine lines, and body-sculpting procedures and laser treatments help to tailor and tone overall appearances.
Peace, Love, and Unity: these are the pillars upon which this studio stands. Designed as an alternative to big, impersonal gyms, the family-owned-and-operated center fosters fun and mind-body-spirit harmony alongside fitness. A women-oriented self-defense class, Divas in Defense, adds an empowering edge to a class catalog that includes yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Those seeking positive inner health may consult with a life coach or practice mediation. Soothing massage therapy and reflexology keep bodies from posing as bread dough to receive a proper kneading.
Laura Urquhart grew up in a spa. Spa treatments were the family business, and as a young child Laura absorbed her parents' dedication to beauty and appreciation for relaxation as a crucial component of happy lives. As an adult, Laura worked to become a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, opening Mango Bliss Spa to share her passion. Her retreat's menu is populated with treatments that she personally designed, from massages that melt tension with hot seashells to Aquabrasion facials that lift bacteria from pores with ultrasound technology. She infuses each service with organic products and offers add-ons, including her specialty, aromatherapy, to augment the sensory effect of each service more pleasantly than equipping treatment rooms with velcro sheets.
Mocha Chic Spa Studio’s aestheticians reach for organic or technologically enhanced methods as they transform their clients’ skin with one of 18 different facials. Whether they treat complexions to the skin-problem-solving powers of blue-agave extract, ultrasonic waves, or restraining orders addressed to individual pimples, the patient staff of skin tenders buffs away dulled and blemished cells to harvest fresher, brighter skin.
The specialists at Skyn Clinic and Apothecary take a French approach to fostering clear complexions, meaning they place a big emphasis on proper skincare in the long run and don't perform services that provide only a quick fix. Botanical and essential-oil-based ingredients furnish services and products, including the spa's own custom skincare line, Skyn Clinic Custom Blends. Skyn Clinic uses only silk eyelash extensions and cruelty-free mink eyelash extensions harvested by carefully brushing minks for their loose hairs. A highly trained technician applies extensions lash by lash and uses a soft collagen pad to protect the bottom lashes, specialized glue to adhere each strand to an original lash, and two tweezers in case one pair gets stage fright. Each semipermanent extension can last up to two months with regular showering, swimming, and exercising. Skyn Clinic technicians also provide eyebrow- and eyelash-tinting services, as well as nonsurgical face lifts to help rejuvenate the eye areas with a collagen infusion and microcurrent treatment.
G Salon and Spa's seasoned stylists and aestheticians wield quality products from such brands as Dermalogica and Davines to gussy up clients' manes and skin. Five levels of stylists slice and condition hair, as master colorists harness decades of experience to skillfully infuse locks with vibrant hues. Equally adept aestheticians perform a slate of skin treatments to battle facial foes such as acne, sensitivity, and premature aging.
When they're not busy constructing runway-ready manes for fashion shows or magazine-reading tournaments, stylists man stations amid the salon's earth-toned color palette, which pairs glossy hardwood floors with rich brown and sky-blue walls. Candles flicker in the serene massage room, where a licensed therapist personalizes Swedish and deep-tissue techniques.
