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. For clients who don't want embarrassing body hair ruining their nudist wedding ceremonies, certified laser technicians attack follicles with CoolGlide Xeo lasers that render the body smooth and hairless. 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.
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.
Hannah and Jennifer dig deep into clients’ psyches to extract their innermost style desires, much like Freud, who double majored in fashion. Regardless of the individual client’s lifestyle and preferences, they can design a new look that suits them, since they’re trained in both current trends and classic techniques. That doesn't mean they use outdated products, though. They pour out Wella Professionals, Moroccanoil, Brocato, and Kaaral products to nurture tresses. The duo activates the power of these lock elixirs to render haircuts and coloring, but also transforms customers' appearances with waxing and tinting services—something hairy cars need, too.
Technicians at Pamper Nails trim and shape nails with sparkling sets of tools. Behind the wrought-iron room divider, brown leather pedicure chairs keep patrons comfortable while technicians smooth heels and lightly massage feet with lotion. The technicians also apply acrylic and gel nails to lengthen short nails or draw attention away from tentacles. While their nails dry, customers may flip through the channels on the flat-screen TV or browse magazines on the coffee table.
The staff at Evolve Hair Clinic uses nonsurgical treatments to address hair loss. Their technicians can fire up low-level lasers to stimulate new hair growth or perform scalp micro-pigmentation to give clients the look of a natural hairline.
In a minimalist office with ivory carpeting and black accents, Dr. Glenn Detlefsen and his staff polish away fine lines and resurface skin with injectables, laser treatments, photofacials, and peels, which can bring a youthful glow to visages without permanently situating them over a birthday cake with five flickering candles. The center bases treatments on results from Visia digital skin analysis, which investigates six aspects contributing to the health and appearance of clients' facial features, including the depth and frequency of wrinkles, the size of pores, and the number of freckles feigned with magic marker.
