Having owned and operated nine different salons, Cheri Pennetta recognizes the importance of taking the needs of each client on a case-by-case basis. Whether those clients arrive at Rock N Roll 56 Salon & Spa looking for a quick fix—or a full-blown makeover—Cheri snips, sprays, and colors accordingly. For hair, Cheri spruces up locks with cuts, blowouts and extensions, and for everything else, she offers specialty services, including spray tans, waxing, and lash upgrades.
At Soleil, a medical spa located within Salon Republic, certified laser specialist Selina Hernandez and Dr. Gerald Searle keep clients looking their best with an array of methods. Hernandez diminishes unwanted hair growth with laser hair-removal sessions, boosts collagen production with IPL photofacials for a more youthful look, and clears away acne with IPL acne treatments. Dr. Searle smoothes away fine lines and signs of aging with Botox and dermal fillers.
True to their name, Hair to Bare specializes in laser hair removal. Their technicians employ intense pulses of light to target follicles on almost any part of the body, minimizing further growth with little pain. But the clinic’s reach goes beyond removing hair to treat faces and bodies with a variety of aesthetic services. Skin rejuvenation treatments erase blemishes and wrinkles from acne, sun exposure, or thinking really, really hard.
Licensed aestheticians Lynda Young and Monique Mannino split their time between administering spa treatments at Rock Creek Medi Spa and educating students at its adjoining Esthetics Institute. The aestheticians helm a staff of technicians and valedictorian lasers who restore balance and radiance to skin. In addition to addressing epidermal concerns, staff members use non-invasive treatments to contour curves, reduce fine lines, and zap away unwanted hair. They also offer full-body fitness with vibration platform machines that help build muscle as you burn calories.
Helmed by owner Shannon A. Wolfgang, the staff of injection specialists at Uptown Medical Aesthetics?formerly A Hair Never There?smoothes skin, removes unwanted follicles, and banishes cellulite with FDA-approved techniques and services. Botox injections remove facial folds and wrinkles for months at a time, and VelaShape treatments can undo cellulite without invasive surgery or dangerous, human-size panini presses. The med spa's technicians draw from extensive certification and medical experience as they beautify both men and women, reducing future hair growth with lasers and electrolysis and helping restore youthful glows to skin with light therapy and chemical peels.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
