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. 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.
InVitalize Medi Spa is a full-service place of pampering, chock-full of talented and friendly technicians who will coddle keratin until it's as stress-free as a fish in water wings. The classic manicure starts out with a warm hand soak followed by cuticle and nail shaping and a soothing massage, and the pedicure begins by submerging flippers in a whirlpool bath. Next, an expert in foot aesthetics and comfort will care for your toe cuticles, shape and buff your nails, exfoliate your hard-working heels, and drive out digit tension during a moisturizing foot massage. Both services are finished with fresh coats of shiny polish and a complete reading of The Salon, a 2005 feature-length film starring Vivica A. Fox.
Fountain of Youth Medical Laser Spa?s staff of certified aestheticians, massage therapists, laser technicians, nurses, and physicians helps faces regain their youthful splendor with skincare treatments. Under the guidance of a board-certified medical director, they helm medical aesthetic machinery that vanquishes unwanted hair and sloughs dead skin cells from the face. Each treatment takes place after a staffer conducts a consultation to customize any necessary treatments and to build a friendly rapport with the patient.
Legacy Salon and Day Spa's facial services smooth over epidermal erosion and melt away the weathered granite of gargoyle mugs to reveal the cherubic visages underneath. Yank out the roots of blackhead radishes with an acne-clearing facial ($80), or go from Two-Face to Catwoman with a pigment balancing facial ($75). A practiced technician stands at the ready to arm male and female kissers with anti-aging ameliorants or vitamin-infused serums, and any facial can be upgraded to a skin-buffing microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value) for an additional $25.
Brenda Miller, licensed aesthetician and owner of Face West Skin Care, uses only glo therapeutics skincare products during her facial treatments. She has pledged allegiance to this brand due to its potent ingredients and thoughtful omission of parabens, dyes, and superglue. In addition to classic European facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, Brenda also offers microcurrent facelifts, LED light therapy, and waxing.
Chemical peels relieve visages from the effects of acne, fine lines, dryness, rosacea and more ($70 per peel), and microdermabrasion utilizes a crystal-free diamond-tipped wand to tenderly exfoliate old epidermal cells, revealing a fresh, healthy layer of skin ($75). Acupuncture has been shown to be capable of aiding the healing process for a variety of ailments, gently tapping into the body's energy channels with extremely fine needles (60-minute session including consultation, $75). Customized to meet your skin's individual needs, an organic facial uses fresh banana, blueberry, or pumpkin to bring out a glowing complexion ($70 for 60 minutes), and a para-medical facial uses powerful ingredients that can only be obtained through a physician, as well as treating you to a face, neck, and scalp massage ($70 for 60 minutes).
