Board-certified dermatologists Dr. Virginia Schekorra and Dr. Charles Dewberry strive to resolve patients' skin concerns with clinical and cosmetic solutions. At The Dermatology Center, they address medical conditions such as eczema and rosacea and combat signs of aging with six types of injectables and dermal fillers or skincare products such as SkinMedica and iS Clinical. Licensed aesthetician Audrey Garcia-Vigotty is certified in the use of intense-pulsed-light technology—which she uses to remove hair or spider veins—and is a certified permanent-makeup artist. The team's certified eyelash-extension expert can beautify guests' faces and enable them to dry fresh coats of nail polish with a few dramatic blinks.
The team of aestheticians at Paradise Spa takes a holistic approach to inner and outer beauty. Staffers don’t just custom blend masks for facials and pamper feet with whirlpool baths during pedicures; they also ensure that clients’ inner health is taken care of with holistic wellness sessions that can balance chakras, develop spiritual awareness, and ease emotional blockages. The spa’s hydrotherapy sessions tend to muscles and nerves simultaneously by combining warm, bubbling waters with aromatic herbal blends of lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Underwater LED color-light therapy, a contemporary healing technique, enhances the baths without the hassle of lassoing a rainbow and yanking it into the tub.
The spa’s licensed massage therapists take over to knead muscles using Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue techniques as well as to guide clients through the stretching of Thai yoga massage. During a full day at the spa, clients can pair one of these massages with a full-body exfoliation or a body wrap made with natural ingredients, such as blueberries or moor mud. The relaxation marathons unfold against the backdrop of the spa’s golden walls, potted plants, soft lighting, and quiet music.
Sarina Skin Spa's dedicated technicians treat visages to a soothing repertoire of facials that bring relief to damaged, aging, and sensitive skin. Based on a one-on-one consultation with the aesthetician, each client can choose from six services, including the wrinkle-erasing firming mask of an anti-aging facial (a $60 value) and the balanced nutrition of organic oat flour in a soothing facial (a $55 value). Like a cartoon locomotive careening towards a wily coyote, each treatment begins with a burst of warm steam, basting face parts in a cloud of comfort as solvents clean out excess dirt from pores and an exfoliate sloughs off dead cells. Next, a gentle massage boosts vital circulation, and a purifying mask and hydrating treatment varnishes visages with a youthful sheen accented by your choice of serenity-inducing aromatherapy oils.
Josephine Ramos can't turn back time; however, she can restore a healthy, youthful glow to her clients' skin by concealing the blemishes and signs of aging that gradually appear. In addition to performing facials for virtually all ages and skin types—clearing pores, hydrating the epidermal layers, and applying custom masks—Josephine uses microcurrent technology or microdermabrasion wands to dramatically improve tone and texture. She also boosts her clients' confidence in their looks by applying a natural-looking airbrush tan and by waxing unwanted stubble.
The Anti-Age Spa at Leigh Ann's aestheticians wage an all-out war on aging, restoring taut, youthful-looking skin with the aid of FDA-approved treatments. In the 40- to 60-minute collagen-induction-therapy treatment, a medical-grade dermaroller trundles over the face and neck, creating micropunctures that allow the spa's therapeutic products and custom-made serums to penetrate deeper, much as perforating a baguette with a toothpick allows it to absorb Kool-Aid better than ever before. The dermaroller stimulates production of collagen and elastin, tightening skin, reducing fine lines, and minimizing wrinkles, resulting in immediate offers to host TV news broadcasts. The procedure requires minimal downtime, though patients may experience a few days to a week of tender facial skin and possible swelling. Patrons also receive 15 percent off retail skincare products at their appointment.
No matter your skin malady, Delia of Delia's European Skin Care Clinique boasts a treatment to tackle it. Whereas her deep-pore-cleanse facial unclogs pores, the glycolic peel both cleans and minimizes them. The calming recovery facial works to nourish visages, and microdermabrasion softens skin to a velvety texture.
