Advanced SkinCare is owned and operated by Cheryl Ohlson, a board certified esthetician with over 10 years of professional experience. Advanced SkinCare offers customized facials, microdermabrasion, glycolic peels, and waxing services.
Skintastik crafts a winning combination of professional tools and products to prod skin into its original, youthful shape. The ultrasonic facial sends out low-frequency ultrasound waves that generate gentle water bubbles, which detect baby faces and actual babies floating beneath your visage. With no crystals or chemicals, the treatment is appropriate for acne- and rosacea-plagued skin. Three-step treatments begin as air-filled orbs go to work removing dead surface cells, dirt, and bacteria. Next, an antioxidant infusion introduces youth to lower levels of the dermis to increase collagen production, in a process akin to flooding skin's basement with marshmallows. In the final phase, microcurrent therapy uses a low-level electrical current to remind sluggish cells what they're supposed to be doing.
The laser technicians at Creekside Medical Spa carefully aim beams to remove hair, veins, and tattoos from the skin. When it comes to facial blemishes, the laser services separate into two specialized treatments: SmartSkin laser rejuvenation and IPL laser facials. The first combats hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and wrinkles, and the latter fades the effects of sun damage more effectively than moving to a dank cave for six months.
It's not all flashing lights at the spa, however. The licensed skincare professionals within also rely on skincare products from Obagi and SkinMedica to refresh certain complexions. Their customized facials address a wide range of symptoms, from dryness to acne, and the formulas used to nourish pores can also be purchased to aid at-home regimens. The spa menu is rounded out by a list of injectables, including Botox and Restylane. These products smooth out wrinkles from between the brows, around the nose, and near the mouth, leaving faces looking firm and youthful.
When muscles' fibers part ever so slightly, blood flows efficiently and healing begins. At Healing Arts Awareness, licensed massage therapist Rob Warfield creates this space within muscles by working across the fibers—a technique appropriately dubbed cross-fiber. Rob often integrates innovative methods such as cross-fiber strokes, acupressure (trigger-point work), and stretching into his massage therapy sessions, depending on whether his clients are sore from a tough week, experiencing the physical challenges of pregnancy, or dealing with chronic muscular disorders. And of course, Rob can also deploy these specialized maneuvers to boost the healing effects of more traditional Swedish, sports, and pregnancy massages. Relaxation and healing is furthered with the soothing sounds of tropical raindrops with crickets or oceanwaves crashing on shore.
As its plainspoken name suggests, The Shop eschews frills in favor of a no-nonsense approach to massage therapy. The studio?s staff recognizes that the frenetic pace of modern life can lead to real health problems. In order to combat the stress of sitting in a traffic jam or the muscle spasms associated with hurling a stalled semitruck off the highway, they rely on a technique known as Royal Touch massage. This specialty therapy combines the penetrating pressures of a deep-tissue massage with the ancient Chinese techniques of acupressure. Their other healing modalities are a bit more straightforward, though hardly less effective. The list includes a soothing lymph therapy along with Swedish, deep-tissue, aromatherapy, and sports massages.
The staff greets Dream Day Spa's visitors with a glass of sparkling mineral water and a smile?a mere prelude to the pampering that is to come in this oasis's treatment rooms. Massages send tension drifting up into the ether, and body wraps exfoliate and nourish the skin. The spa's overflowing bath provides a continuous flow of burbling water, keeping the body warm and immersed throughout the session, and the steam room opens the pores with piped-in eucalyptus scents.
Facials fight signs of aging, and chemical peels provide more dramatic results by stripping away the topmost layer of skin. This removes everything from sun damage to wrinkles to the stubborn body glitter left over from your prom.
