Greenville Laser Clinic's certified laser technicians don't use lasers just to eliminate hair. Although laser hair removal ranks high on their list of skills, and can eradicate stubble long-term in just four or six treatments, it's just one of their light-centric services. For instance, laser acne treatments enlist a similar type of light technology, but to decimate bacteria that triggers acne, the second most common cause right after falling asleep face-down in a pizza. In this case, the power comes in the form of intense pulsed light—the same used for photo facials, which combat wrinkles and other blemishes.
At first glance, Niemann Perry Salon looks edgy, its carpet daubed with a graffiti-like black-and-white print and its staffers roaming about styled in neon hair dye and tattoos. But this edgy style simply adds personality and flair to the professional med-spa and salon linked by a partnership to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Martin. Guided by the doctor, the staff performs an extensive list of aesthetic services, including facial peels, laser hair removal, Botox, and other injections. Not to be outdone, hair stylists stock their stations with Keune, L'anza, and Kevin Murphy products, and nail artists slick talons with OPI lacquers and trim cuticles using only their boot spurs.
Belfiore Salon & Day Spa is 10,000 square feet of luxury. Virtually every possible beauty, relaxation, and wellness service is available here, from massage therapy and hair removal to Brazilian blowouts, mani-pedis, and permanent cosmetics application. Come in for a chic new haircut and an indulgent body wrap, or have eyelash extensions applied and a laser hair removal treatment administered by a licensed professional. You can even work out—head over to the Elite Fitness Center to use weight-training and cardio machines, or try a small group fitness class. Tired muscles relax in the onsite steam and sauna rooms, leaving visitors feeling relaxed, renewed, and totally pampered.
For more than 20 years, AIIC-certified master technician Kim Morrow has worked to beautify her clients using her knowledge and experience in permanent-makeup and eyelash-extension application. At The Studio at Rockwall Spa, she helms a team of beauty professionals that enhances features with permanent makeup and elongates lashes with extensions that add thickness without the need for mascara or chunky peanut butter. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair, clearing the way for a custom airbrush tan.
Jaclyn Cornelius, owner and massage therapist at Zen Zone Massage, begins eliminating her clients' stress the instant they walk through her door. She sets them up in a private, quiet room—a tidily organized space bathed in the flickering glow of candlelight. She invites customers to recline onto the table and snuggle onto a sheet-covered warming bad draped with a heavy, cozy blanket. As customers ready themselves for the massage, she plays Healing Flute Chakra music, a gentle blend of airy harmonies designed calm the mind and drive away any snakes in the area.
She says her favorite service to perform is a deep tissue massage with accompanying hot towel treatment. To maximize the pampering, she offers a handful of add-ons, such as aromatherapy, sea salt foot scrub, reflexology, and body wraps.

The setting is a spunky little Hair Junkie salon, where glittery guitars decorate the walls and shiny bottles of hair- and skincare products pack the shelves of rustic wooden bookcases. The leading lady of our story is Dakota Deweese—a skilled skincare specialist with golden hair. She bustles about the brightly lit salon, smoothing wrinkles, banishing blemishes, and rejuvenating skin through comprehensive facial treatments. On some days, she adds volume and glamour to lashes with professional extensions. Dakota is joined by a supporting cast of skilled stylists who snip up new looks, tanning specialists who bronze skin with UV-free spray, and a fairy disguised as a client who graciously grants her three wishes after receiving a particularly relaxing exfoliation treatment.
