Denice Schwind knows skin. A board-certified physician assistant and cosmetic dermatology specialist, she has devoted nearly the past decade to advanced training in aesthetic treatments. Now, as the owner of Pūr Skin Clinic, she and her skilled colleagues aim to share that expertise by providing premiere services in a modern, upscale environment. The aestheticians can fine-tune pores with treatments ranging from facials and microdermabrasion, to nonsurgical, anti-aging alternatives such as laser rejuvenation and exfoliating chemical peels. The clinic also specializes in injections and dermal fillers, and has been recognized by Allergan as a Platinum Plus Certified Partner. But Pūr Skin Clinic aims to be more than just a pretty façade—the haven is dedicated to serving the community by supporting a variety of charitable organizations.
At her eponymous salon nestled behind the mirrored glass of Ultimate Salon Studios, aesthetician Stacy Sullivan zeroes in on blemishes, wrinkles, and body hair. With skincare products from Dermalogica and organic Hungarian line Éminence, she customizes each facial to accommodate her clients’ skin type. For more intense exfoliation, she employs lactic- and glycolic-acid peels and Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare peels. Lash and brow tinting enhance facial features, and an arsenal of wax and sugar paste banishes their mustaches, leg fuzz, and clingy area rugs.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
