Angie Cundiff-Roy, nurse practitioner and the medical director at Avante Garde Aesthetic Centers, totes more than 10 years of aesthetic experience in her beauty tool belt. Backed by an all-female staff well versed in clinical laser treatments and hypothetical time travel, Angie dowses clients in a waterfall of skin-preserving knowledge during each nonsurgical treatment. Her centers' chemical peels and dermal fillers rejuvenate complexions, and medically supervised weight-loss programs and chiropractic treatments keep the pounds and pains away. Avante Garde's staff further fosters youthful appearances with Glytone, Latisse, Avène, and glominerals products.
The aestheticians at Bloom Salon & Body Spa present clients with non-invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Instead of liposuction, they melt away inches with Lipolaser treatments. Instead of facelifts, they tighten the skin naturally by stimulating the muscles underneath. Since these techniques keep the scalpel in the drawer, they spare clients the long recovery periods required after more taxing options, such as surgery or witchcraft.
In addition to their technological beauty techniques, the team also augments appearances and pampers patrons with facials and a full menu of hair services. Six types of massages scold away stress with relaxation tools such as hot stones and grapefruit foot scrubs.

Missy Acra first sharpened her shears and her skills at a Regis salon before diving into the fast-paced environment at Great Clips. As each day presented her with a frenzy of new 'dos, she developed a fondness for clippers, razors, and edgy cuts. She took this experience with her to Empire Beauty School, where she spent four years as an instructor, introducing new stylists to the many facets of the salon industry. Missy helped her students hone their skills but realized they still needed guidance after graduation, so she opened M-Salon to give them a head start in the real world.
Today, Missy draws on 10 years of experience to guide her former students as they craft flattering looks and nurture damaged tresses amid steel-blue walls, wooden floors, and shelves lined with products. In addition to hair services, her stylists also beautify nails, wax unwanted fuzz, and design custom wigs with drag-reducing spoilers.
Dr. Michael Samuel and Dr. Steve Samuel at Body Allure refine the human form with a three-pronged approach. Their diet programs help reduce cravings and chase away pounds, and their wellness programs recalibrate unbalanced hormone levels and address the needs of the adrenal glands. Among their beauty treatments, fat-fighting injections help patients fit into their most revealing lederhosen, and SmoothShapes lasers diminish the appearance of cellulite.
