Skinsations Health & Wellness Medical Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
Board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head-and-neck surgery), Dr. Steven Goldman of Beachwood and Westlake Plastic Surgery artfully reshapes bodies and wards off the signs of aging. He tucks tummies and enhances bust lines in his clinic's in-office operating suite, while the registered nurses, medical assistants, and medical aestheticians on his team tend to less invasive procedures such as beauty injections, noninvasive CoolSculpting, and laser treatments. The clinic's med spa offerings include customized facials and pharmaceutical peels, in addition to lash extensions, body waxing, and surfboard waxing.
Licensed nail professional Aisha L. McCaleb and the team at A-Spot Nail Studio give fingers and toes an elegant transformation with custom mani-pedis. Patterned white furnishings provide a sleek counterbalance to the spa’s pink walls, creating an aura of pampering and indulgence that’s mirrored by nail treatments that include hot stones and exfoliating hand and foot scrubs. Nail technicians draw from a spectrum of OPI polish colors at the conclusion of mani-pedis, resulting in nails that look so groomed they can be dunked in a punch bowl without offending other partygoers.
After 12 years of business, In Carol’s Care, nationally board-certified colon hydrotherapist Carol Perkoski and her staff cleanse the body of accumulated waste with various detoxifying services. Their colon-hydrotherapy treatments rely on gravity and warm water to flush out systems, and their infrared-sauna sessions use penetrating heat to help the body sweat out stored toxins resulting from poor diets and polluted environments. Specializing in Thai Yoga massage, Carol's three qualified practitioners,use the 2,500-year-old ayurvedic body science to help stretch clients with yoga poses. To further enhance mind-body connections, she offers Reiki and energy healing.
Aesthetics Etc. owner Ann Marie Ray strives to transform standard beauty services into relaxing sensory experiences. Her staff incorporates the flame-softened wax of collagen-infused candles into select massages, relies on brand-name gloProfessional products, and encourages clients to slip into cozy slippers and robes. Ann Marie's signature service is permanent-makeup application though, which is useful both for helping chemotherapy patients to aesthetically recover from the loss of their eyebrows or simply shortening a client’s daily face-prepping routine.
Before pursuing a career in makeup and skincare, Ann Marie spent seven years working a standard 9-to-5 job in finance. After years of persuasion and encouragement from her mother, a professional aesthetician, she left the corporate world and became a certified permanent-cosmetics specialist in 2002. Today, mother and daughter operate separate but noncompeting businesses, referring clients to one another for specific treatments or a second opinion on who left the milk out that one time in 1991.
Inside Wellness Laser Center & Med Spa's cozy office, trained technicians wield microcurrents and lasers to help physiques to achieve their dreams. From toning-facial sessions to pound-punching LipoLaser procedures, the center's non-invasive beautifiers sculpt new looks with limited downtime. Microcurrent facials bolster collagen, elastin, and ATP production to transform skin from wrinkly and sagging to svelte. Whole-body-vibration platforms and cold lasers join forces in their battle against flab during LipoLaser treatments. During sessions akin to poisoning fat with a diet of greens, the treatment purges the system of demolished fat cells with no discomfort and no downtime.
