Led by oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Steven Selchow, the staff at Rejuv Skin & Laser Clinic prioritizes professionalism just as much as luxury. Before the licensed medical professionals administer services such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm dermal injections, they conduct an initial consultation. They cover patient history and cosmetic goals—from looking younger to looking as smooth as a dolphin slicked in olive oil. Wielding laser technology, they aim to shut down hair growth, tighten sagging skin, reduce cellulite, and banish blemishes. Some of their services tackle multiple ailments in a single treatment, such as the triniti—a combination of procedures that reduces signs of aging with three applicators.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
At Massage Heaven, achy muscles and anxious minds receive equal amounts of attention from the hands of experienced massage professionals. Swedish massage helps ease stress with long, fluid strokes, while deep-tissue work, trigger point therapy, and pregnancy massage revert overworked or injured bodies back to their more able selves. Massage Heaven layers aromatherapy onto traditional bodywork and offers lesser-known modalities including ice massage, which dulls pain and reduces one's chance of spontaneous combustion.
Nail artist Xiu Pham has spent the last 20 years honing her craft, specializing in application of stylish acrylics and nail designs. Her treatment menu helps groom and glamorize both the hands and feet with mani-pedi treatments and tiers of pampering add-ons such as aromatherapy, masks, and paraffin treatments, which drape feet in warm wax to evoke the tranquility of a footbath in a freshly blown-out birthday cake. To complement nail services, the salon flaunts massages, herbal facials and wraps, and waxing treatments, each of which allows patrons to refine the rest of their appearances as they drift off to the sounds of meditation music. Complimentary vitamin shakes and scalp massages round out the luxurious extras to ensure clients feel as hydrated and energized as a sponge in a Red Bull factory.
As a cancer survivor, massage therapist Barbara L. Elsenpeter sees her healing touch as more than just a way to unwind. While her menu of massage services undoubtedly leaves clients feeling pampered, she gears them to achieve a range of beneficial effects, such as greater energy, improved circulation, and enhanced immunity. Her specialty oncology massage is designed to help cancer patients control the aches and pains associated with their illness.
Owner Angela Bastien—an 18-year veteran of the healthcare industry—runs Begin with your Skin Medspa with a staff that includes a board-certified plastic surgeon who graduated from Duke University and a medical aesthetician who holds a diploma from the prestigious CIDESCO aesthetics program. With this lineup of talent, the clinic can offer cosmetic services that recapture youth by way of injectable, laser, and peel. Treatments such as Botox and Juvederm fill out wrinkles in the face, and photodynamic-therapy treatments tackle acne blemishes with advanced lights and photosensitizing agents.

Since skincare is so central to the med spa's offerings—the staff performs chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and 3D skin rejuvenation, among other skin-centric treatments—it's convenient that it also carries products for maintaining your results, including clinically tested Skinceuticals formulas.
