When Lauren Anderson joined her sister Kelley at the helm of LAE Beauty, she didn’t need many introductions. People already knew the confident blonde from her centerfold in Playboy. Though more than a decade has passed since Lauren’s first magazine appearance, her impact on the beauty industry continues to grow. With the help of highly specialized staffers, including a physician and licensed aesthetician, LAE Beauty offers an assortment of beautifying services, from tanning and facials to botox and medical weight-loss treatments.
With more than 20 years of cosmetic surgery experience, Dr. Richard Sadove leads his clinic in the fight against the visible effects of time on the human body. After a consultation, spider veins are treated through a process known as sclerotherapy, in which a sclerosing solution is injected into the affected area that is intended to cause unsightly spider veins to collapse. Each session typically lasts about 30 minutes.
Working up a sweat is often seen as the prerequisite to getting in shape, but at Abstract Bodyworks, that's simply not the case. That's because the studio's trainers keep the studio cooled to 65 degrees, diminishing the body's need to sweat while preserving the benefits of exercise. Clients can even work out in their regular clothes, and there's no need to shower afterward.
The refreshingly cool temperature isn't the only thing that sets Abstract Bodyworks apart from other gyms. For one thing, the studio specializes in working with clients 40 and older, using movements requiring minimal force to help with chronic back and neck pain. For another, one-on-one full-body resistance training sessions last just 15 minutes?a convenient length for clients with busy schedules. Finally, the sessions are held in a private room without mirrors, allowing students to burn calories and tone their muscles without distractions.
The team at Synergie AMS at Abstract Bodyworks offer an array of spa services. Facial-tightening treatments increase circulation to help provide a younger, healthier look, while three-step MicroPeels help remove wrinkles from the neck, forehead, lipline, and more. Synergie cellulite-reduction treatments break down fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth skin. They also design 15-minute workouts in the hopes of helping clients live like they?re 15 years younger. Though short, the one-on-one sessions introduce the body to proper exercise, which helps build lean muscle, boost bone density, and increase metabolism with the proper diet. They design their sessions to protect against issues such as osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and fat gain.
Although Mode Salon East lines its shelves with organic Davines products and Mode Salon West spotlights botanically derived products by Aveda, the two sister locations share a dedication for creating inspired hairstyles.

Armed with premium haircare products and this extensive professional development, Mode Salon’s stylists add depth to new cuts with regular highlights, painted-on passages from War and Peace, or more natural balayage and ombre coloring. An array of skincare, waxing, and mani-pedi treatments round out the salons’ service menus.
