Enesa Seremet, who has globetrotted as an international skincare specialist and earned a postgraduate CIDESCO degree in aesthetics, now helms Enesa Skin Institute, a center that specializes in European beauty treatments. In addition to using techniques from overseas, Seremet imports holistic products such as French wax. Unlike standard hot wax, this Parisian product warms in response to body heat rather than freelancing hibachi grills and avoids burning skin as it gently strips away stubble. Dried herbs and spices combine to create masks for six-procedure facials, soaking skin in natural vitamins and minerals. Each session starts with a personal consultation, and early patrons wait for their aesthetician in a yellow waiting room with Victorian-style couches and armchairs.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
No amount of time spent researching can replicate experience. So, when it comes to its weight-loss supervisors, Ageless Center gives its clients both?the staff members have lost more than 1,200 pounds collectively. So when they teach, they're drawing from memory as well as their studies. They utilize six programs to help people drop unwanted pounds, recalling their own struggles as they monitor each client's progress at weekly meetings. They've even written their own cookbook with healthy recipes and tips.
In the interest of boosting confidence even further, the center has its own medical spa onsite. There, visitors can treat their complexions to facials, fade wrinkles with injectables such as Botox, and clear away bothersome body hair or skin imperfections with laser procedures.
At Eden Therapeutic Solutions, staffers specialize in massage therapy, highly individualized skincare treatments, and professional waxing services. Massage therapists soothe weary muscles with several modalities, ranging from relaxing aromatherapy sessions with fragrant essential oils to prescribed medical massages that counteract the pain and inflammation of an injury.
Skincare experts combat specific issues such as acne or signs of aging with more than a dozen facials and procedures that use custom-blended organic botanicals and other ingredients found in Bioelements formulas. They can slough away dulling cells and address fine lines with a pumice-peel manual microdermabrasion or soothe the effects of ingrown hairs or a pre-duel glove to the cheek with a gentleman's facial.
Seasons Light Therapy's team of aestheticians harnesses the restorative powers of noninvasive light to tone tired faces and banish skin discoloration. The succinct menu boasts LumiLift treatments, also known as nonsurgical face-lifts, during which strobes of pulsating light and micronized currents travel deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and tighten slack muscles without stern reprimands. Clients can also settle under the LumiFacial's Soli-Tone wraparound panel, which, like a malfunctioning rainbow, emits four different colors of healing light. Taking in these vibrant rays has been shown to reduce the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and acne. Microdermabrasion treatments also target these epidermal symptoms, smoothing over skin with fine sprays of exfoliating mineral crystals.
Erica McDowell, licensed aesthetician and owner of Skyn Lounge, has spent the past 16 years in the skincare industry. Drawing upon that experience, she offers services that range from waxing and massage to facials. During treatments, she arms herself with products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Bliss Spa, and Obagi Medical, as well as Zen Skyn Color Collection, her in-house line that fuses nature and science to beautify skin rather than motorize trees. Skyn Lounge also focuses on clinical treatments including dermafiling and dermaplaning, which both slough away dry skin; peels utilize salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and other skin-brightening ingredients to reduce signs of acne and dry skin.
