Tending to bodies for more than 30 years, The Skin Center Medical Spa enhances innate beauty through noninvasive laser treatments, anti-aging skin therapies, and cosmetic enhancements. Conceived by Dr. Dominic Brandy, the current medical director at three Pittsburgh locations, and overseen by the Columbus location's medical director, Dr. Fernando Colon, the minimally invasive QuickLift mini face-lift helps tighten the lower face, neck, and jawline with a dramatically shortened recovery time. The Skin Center's experts revitalize all components of the face, targeting veins, hair, or Mona Lisa–shaped birthmarks through surgical solutions and high-tech injections. Vascular surgeons Dr. Marios Panayides and Dr. Jason Tomsic specialize in minimally invasive surgeries such as such as endovenous laser ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy to serve skin below the head.
Owners and principal members of the stylist team Emilio and Gino corral their decades of experience to create two distinct spaces where clients revel in personalized services. They staff more than 60 aesthetes, each of whom receives focused training on adjusting hair, skin, nail, and massage services to clients’ stated preferences and lifestyle. During and after haircuts, the team uses a house brand of products to style strands and address specific hair problems such as color fading, excessive oil, or naturally occurring pipe cleaners. During facials, the aestheticians home in on what lies below bangs by cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing skin, and tension dissipates during therapists' restful massage sessions. The downtown Pittsburgh location also plays host to an elegant serata—a private, chandelier-lit escape where bridal parties can enjoy ultimate relaxation before addressing the fact that their friend is marrying a panda bear.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
Stylists at Dolce' Vita Salon & Spa know that living the sweet life isn't just about being rich; it's about feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin. So they try to help their clients retain sharper images with professional haircuts, color, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments that make hair sleeker and enable it to fit back into its prom hat. Their efforts haven’t gone unnoticed—clients voted Dolce' Vita the best salon in Wexford in Trib Total Media’s 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards. To keep the good vibes flowing below the shoulders, the spa also offers spa services that include Swedish or deep-tissue massage, custom facials, and Minx Nails mani-pedis.

Prettify and protect nails with a manicure and spa pedicure.

Twenty nail shapings and cuticle trims transform battered claws into shapely nails, and a foot scrub smoothes roughened skin, transforming hard-working extremities into well-kempt wonders of hygiene and sophistication. Allure carries OPI nail products with a full range of fashionable chromatic choices.
Laser devices fill every loop in Premier Laser Spa of Pittsburgh’s tool belt. The certified laser technicians reach for them during noninvasive hair-removal sessions, where they unholster the one best suited to an individual's skin tone. With the help of accompanying cooling systems, each laser banishes unwanted follicles while keeping skin from overheating. Their laser prowess extends to facial rejuvenation as well, and the techs also stimulate collagen production, improving texture and tone with the help of skin-tightening treatments.
