Aesthetician Christine Zimmerman executes Vasculyse treatments to banish vascular blemishes ranging from broken capillaries to skin tags. During the treatment, a handheld device emits a low-level energy current to force the cells that compose the imperfections into a form of coagulation, after which the body absorbs them. The device's tiny tip, similar in width to a piece of thread, targets even minuscule marks such as ruby points or drops of nail polish that help patients to tell one elbow from the other. Although minor marks can clear up after one visit, harder-to-treat lesions such as telangiectasia and spider angioma may require up to three sessions to eradicate. Sessions last approximately 20 minutes, and most clients report only a slight pinching feeling, similar to crowd-surfing on hermit crabs.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
Yolo Laser Center & Med Spa’s licensed clinicians douse clients in a cornucopia of rejuvenating facial and massage services that quickly distinguished the clinic as Best New Business in 2009, according to the Guilford Chamber of Commerce. During the 60-minute spa package, clients sojourn into a private room where a skilled aesthetician administers a therapeutic massage, coaxing tension out of the neck and shoulders with gliding strokes and tenderly written court subpoenas. Then, after evaluating skin type and condition, the aesthetician tailors a Yolo signature facial that gently sloughs off dead cells, uncorks pores with light extractions, and slathers skin with an anti-aging serum designed to firm falling countenances.
Isabella nails & day spa’s menu of nail services comes to sparkling life in a salon of plush pedicure chairs, footbaths, and lively greenery. Phalange pampering takes the form of classic spa manicures and pedicures with add-ons such as acrylic or gel polish to decorate hardworking nails and loyal tusks. The sanitary salon also offers services specially designed for the nails of youngsters. A full lineup of waxing treatments targets fuzz and bristle along the face or bikini line.
Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.
