For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
East Side Laser Center's owner, Bridget Miller, keeps current with skin-perfecting techniques and technologies and has compiled a collection of services that employs lasers, peels, microdermabrasion, and intense pulsed light. Bridget's lasers excise the body of unwanted accouterments such as hair or a tattooed map of the place you used to hide your Junior Mints. Photofacials and peels reduce age-related blemishes such as wrinkles and age spots and inspire skin to regenerate in a younger-looking incarnation.
Offering everything from Botox and Juv?derm to mani-pedis and spray tans, the staff at Pampered Peacock Spa and Boutique makes each client?s beauty and relaxation needs a top priority. Hair services include cuts, color, and keratin treatments. Spa packages combine services such as a soothing Swedish massage and mani-pedi or full-body exfoliation followed by a spray tan. For the young ones?girls between the ages of 3 and 12?the staff can prettify fingers or toes during fun spa parties, and also performs facials or creates envious peacock hairdos.
Laser Hair & Skin Center of Monroeville's experienced staff specializes in noninvasive med-spa services that have earned multiple awards, including the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Readers' Choice Awards Gold and Silver honors. Staff members attend routine seminars to keep their skills sharp, staying ready to perform the latest skin rejuvenation and hair-removal techniques. Among their arsenal of beautifying treatments, staff members can harness LED lights to boost collagen with photomodulation procedures, minimize blemishes with organic Hylunia facials, and remove unwanted hair without burning it off during a round of fire limbo.
Jean Reeves, founder of Advanced Medical Electrolysis, has been in the hair-removal biz since 1985, treating the hair follicles with the only method deemed permanent by the FDA. She is joined by a team of fellow electrologists and together they work to eradicate hairs from areas such as the legs and bikini lines.
The stylists and aestheticians at Bella Bronze Hair Salon and Tanning Studios strive to create a friendly, upbeat environment for clients who drop in for transformative beauty jaunts. Hair gets a time-out as stylists deftly cut or color it, drawing on their continuing education in the latest techniques as they transform coiffures to clients’ specifications. A nail technician stains talons with salon-caliber acrylics or OPI gels and other services to keep hands looking their best. The salon’s facials and peels rejuvenate all types of skin, which can also darken to a sun-kissed bronze in onsite tanning beds from brands such as Ergoline and Wolff. The SolarForce booth lets guests stay upright while gilding, and VersaSpa spray tanning evades both UV rays and beaches’ suit-snatching tidal waves while turning limbs a glowing copper.
