At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic?s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
Muscle knots. Chronic aches. Deep-seated reservoirs of stress and anxiety. These and other ailments bring clients to Elements Therapeutic Massage, where they find relief courtesy of professional therapists who customize their treatments to match individual needs. The studio’s unique, level-based system gives clients an idea of what to expect during the session; they can request a low level for a gentler experience or opt for a higher level to eliminate any soreness remaining from the previous day’s jousting tournament. Each massage therapist has his or her own specialties, and treatments may draw on relaxing Swedish and hot-stone techniques or firmer deep-tissue and trigger-point strokes.
A private treatment room blooms with the aromas of jojoba essential oils as professionals detangle muscle knots or harvest beauty from pores using Aveda's signature blends of flower and plant essences. Staffers can also add pizzazz to guests' hair using coloring products that are up to 99% naturally derived and extensions that are made from human hair or colorful feathers. Additionally, staffers can remove unwanted body bristle with waxing services or immerse tired feet in a cane-sugar scrub and tubs of Yanni mix tapes during soothing Caribbean-therapy pedicures.
