Venus Salon and Spa's staff addresses nearly any beauty or relaxation need with their full menu of treatments. Stylists in the salon work within the chocolaty yet inedible frames of full-length mirrors to alter strands' length, shape, and color. Down the hall, aestheticians extract grime with the help of Dermalogica products, while airbrush artists harvest bronzy glows with organic spray tanning formulas. At the nail stations, technicians pluck feet freshly exfoliated with a sea-salt scrub from gilded pedicure bowls before brushing on OPI or Shellac polish.
Beauty for Life maintains clients' healthy, glowing exteriors through a variety of skin services that fight aging, acne, and skin dullness. The premium microdermabrasion treatment begins with a skin analysis, then gently sloughs away dead skin using a diamond-tipped wand, extending care to include the neck area and second heads. After removing the superficial layer, a skin professional swaddles skin with products that fight signs of aging. Steam therapy opens pores, and a facial massage works out tension caused by overfilling cheek pockets with mashed potatoes. Deep cleansing and optional extractions help dirt and oil vacate pores, and a cooling mask fills the void with moisture.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Leny Eidsmore of Highlands Naturopathic Physician often fuses botanical remedies and Chinese medicine to help bring bodies into balance, but she doesn't ignore the role of technology in healing. When Dr. Eidsmore meets clients for free consultations, she takes a holistic approach to determining treatment goals by asking about health history, current medications, and the last time the client was struck by lightning. From there, she may prescribe custom nutritional plans or begin aesthetic treatments, such as reducing cellulite with detoxification and radio-frequency therapy or minimizing rosacea and acne with IPL treatments.

The stylists at Gina Salon (located at Salon Melini) have a shared love: showing their clients how great hairstyle can dramatically change their entire look. They do this by snipping hair into a fresh style, adding new texture or length with perms, straightening, and extensions, and improving hair health by coating strands with damage-repairing deep conditioners or spoon-feeding them chicken soup. Each service starts with a free consultation to determine the client's desired outcome and give them peace of mind, so they can sit back, relax, and just enjoy the experience.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Paul A. Madsen, who has decades of experience in the field of preventive medicine, the staff at Madsen Medical Spa harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology in an effort to reduce corporeal circumferences. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid deposits can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
