With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
The Vanity Center treats and beautifies skin with microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels. The center’s licensed aestheticians are also experts in the CelluSleek body-contouring system. A blend of deep-tissue massage, cupping, and subdermal therapy, CelluSleek is a noninvasive treatment that aims to reduce cellulite and help clients shed unwanted inches. Staffers also perform microcurrent facials, which harness the power of electricity to turbocharge skin elasticity, just as Benjamin Franklin originally intended.
Hope Law always knew she’d end up in the beauty industry, helping women of all ages and backgrounds feel confident in their own skin. She brings out inner glamour through expert makeup application, which she can perform in her studio, at the client's home, or at the starting line of a mud run. Her other specialties include applying custom eyelash extensions that last for up to eight weeks and ridding bodies of unwanted hair with waxing.
Between UV-rays, humidity, and searing cold, the skin takes on a lot throughout the seasons. That why Joi Aikens, a self-proclaimed product junkie, adheres to a regimen of products to keep her complexion healthy. But it wasn't always this way. It wasn’t until beauty school that she first saw the effect a customized treatment could have on her skin, and it fueled her desire to help herself, as well as others. Today, as a licensed skincare therapist, Joi uses her own blend of products to help her clients feel good physically, mentally, and spiritually. She also draws on her facial certifications in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and Mr. Potato Head rearranging to offer a comprehensive service menu. Clients can relax in the comfort of her private studio, where she cultivates a spa-like atmosphere and performs services such as a swift wax or facial, or a smoothing body peel for full-body restoration.
Visitors to Dunwoody Wellness Center are always greeted with a smile. That's because the staff's health and beauty philosophy runs on positive energy, much like a hot air balloon manned by an aerobics instructor. Staffers believe that positive vibes are able to catalyze real, lasting changes. These optimistic thinkers include medical aesthetician Anna Gorenshteyn, chiropractor Tatyana Foran, and registered nurse Candice Morrow. They administer treatments ranging from massage therapy to chiropractic adjustments to facials, taking care to pamper clients so visits are just as relaxing as they are effective.
Barbara "Beebe" Love seems to be something of a heartbreaker. From the testimonials on her website, it's clear that, as she's moved from salon to salon throughout the Midwest, she's left a trail of clients searching for somebody to fill her place. Their loss, however, is Dunwoody's gain. In the studio she recently opened near Perimeter Mall, she designs hairstyles for maximum versatility and shares beauty tips of all kinds. She and her staff also specialize in high-quality extensions and in color that leaves hair looking healthy, which means using conditioning Redken Chromatics products rather than braiding in broccoli florets.
