As a former contestant in the Mrs. Virginia pageant, owner Lesley Cook knows the impact seasoned professionals and top-notch products have on beauty. That's why she staffs Rejuvenation Skin Institute with knowledgeable specialists ready to pamper clients with treatments fueled by Dermalogica products, which are free of common irritants and ingredients that often cause breakouts, such as artificial fragrances and pizza grease. A master aesthetician performs the spa's noninvasive Hollywood face-lift?which uses gentle microcurrent pulses and vitamin-enriched gels to soften and smooth skin.
Ralphann Forrest has worked as a beauty expert for over 22 years. She is a Licensed Esthetician/Esthetics Instructor and MAC Pro Makeup Artist.

The experienced aestheticians at Hague Medi-Spa wield quality products such as Obagi, Vivité, and SkinCeuticals to perform rejuvenating facial treatments overseen by in-house cosmetic surgeons. The skin savants precede facials with a skin analysis to customize the pampering to each client's skin type and specific concerns. In the 30-minute express facial, face custodians remove dirt and debris from pores and slough away extraneous skin cells. A steam treatment and gentle massage soothe weary visages, and a mask and moisturizer hydrate flesh dried out by unusually droll coworkers. The 60-minute Hague Signature facial also encompasses Dermaplane exfoliation. In this virtually painless, noninvasive treatment, skin-savvy technicians scrape the face with a surgical-grade blade while avoiding sensitive areas. The procedure produces smoother, clearer skin while depriving facial follicles of their fuzzy tenants.
Located within a stately two-story brick home, Perfectly Pixeled Wellness Spa offers clients expert beauty services in a cozy, residential setting. From the button-tufted couch in the waiting area to the eclectic knickknacks in some dimly lit treatment rooms, the ambiance here is warm and inviting instead of cold and clinical, like some hospital in an igloo. Within those comfy confines, aestheticians zap unwanted body hair with lasers and pamper skin with facials or peels. Massage and reiki treatments recalibrate muscles and minds, whereas permanent makeup treatments redefine features with expertly applied injected inks.
All of the hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians at Serenity Spa strive to make clients feel comfortable and relaxed, not just by pampering them, but by putting them at ease with unpretentious service. Wielding botanically based Aveda products, the stylists can reshape tresses into a modern 'do or a scale model of Mount Rushmore. Relaxing and therapeutic massages unfurl knotted muscles, and the spa's facial and body treatments employ Pevonia skincare products and luxuriant ingredients, including pure caviar extract, African sea-salt scrubs, and masks with seaweed and chamomile. The nail technicians tidy up clients' digits by evenly trimming cuticles and shaping nails, glazing them with a fresh coat of color or a chip-resistant Axxium or Shellac gel polish.
