Newly opened last November, Salon Ciera has cultivated a menu of services designed to both beautify and relax. From hairstyling to four types of facial, the skilled staff works hand in hand with clients to personalize each service. Trained massage therapists also call the space home, doling out multiple treatments that strive to relieve back pain, as well as more unconventional stress such as sinus headaches and mouth pain caused by TMJ disorders. Salon Ciera's decor welcomes guests with turquoise and floral-patterned walls, private-treatment rooms, and an absence of hungry trolls guarding the building's entrance.
The team of professionals at Body Image Solutions?a center devoted to health, beauty, and wellness?works to beautify bodies inside and out with aesthetic laser services and a full-service medical spa.
Elsewhere at Body Image Solutions, its advanced lasers target imperfections lurking just below the skin's surface with treatments such as spider vein therapy and laser hair removal with Candela GentleYAG and Gentlelase PRO devices. Clients who cast their eyes spa-ward might catch a glimpse of professional makeup applications using Jane Iredale products or pouts that are freshly plumped thanks to injectables such as Botox and Juv?derm. In addition to its routine aesthetic enhancements and skin-tightening treatments, Body Image Solutions offers acne treatments and intense pulsed light treatments to remove and brown pigmentation caused by sun damage, all with the help of the advanced Candela GentleLase. Body Image Solutions also offers top-of-the-line pharmaceutical skin care products from brands such as Obagi, Skin Ceuticals, and Latisse. Facials, microdermabrasion, macrodermabrasion (salt-a-peel), chemical peels, and back facials are also available.
At Iconz Hair Studio and Day Spa, the level of detail put into the salon's elegant décor is second only to the attention poured into every haircut, massage, and facial. Inside, sparkling chandeliers throw light onto velvet damask couches, where clients enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks from the salon's coffee bar before shedding strands with a Brazilian wax or adopting new ones in the form of extensions. Candles cast a soft glow inside private treatment rooms, where therapists cast off tension with the soothing kneads of a Swedish or hot-stone massage or buff skin with body scrubs, custom blended with aromatherapy oils or natural herbs. Gilded mirrors allow customers to get a glimpse of their newly radiant selves as they pass through the salon's crimson-curtain-lined doorways on their way back into the world. Products by brands such as Lanza, Iso, and Vitale Pro can help to maintain new looks at home or inside any blow-dryer-equipped bookstore.
Starting her career as a movie hair and makeup artist, Alicia Allain now runs the beautifying hub Ma Maison of Beaute. Her team of aestheticians snip, style, and chemically straighten locks, thread eyebrows into expressive arches, and wax away peach fuzz from legs and secret tails. Patrons can enlist a stylist for makeup application and hairstyling for special occasions or opt to banish tension with specialized massage techniques that hail from countries all over the world, including Asia and Hawaii.
Renew Day Spa houses a team of massage therapists and aestheticians that fawns over patrons throughout each massage and facial in a cornucopia of rejuvenating services. The staff focuses on building a clientele not by relying on grandiose d?cor but by establishing long-term relationships with customers. In addition to a lenient six-hour cancellation policy, Renew Day Spa promises a calm environment untouched by the noisy sound of cellphone/pager courtship rituals.
The cosmetic specialists at Louisiana Laserderm evict unwanted, overstaying veins and tattoos from their epidermal abodes through nonsurgical procedures. The approximately 30-minute vein-removal treatment sends small leg or facial veins on a virtually permanent vacation by using gentle lasers that are quick and accurate—like a sprinting calculator. For larger leg veins, the procedure combines sclerotherapy injections with laser light to shrink unsightly protuberances with a dual-powered zap. The staff at Louisiana Laserderm recommend only one session of vein-removal treatment for the best results.
