Affordable Aesthetics Laser Center's experienced staff buffs bodies with a passel of cosmetic treatments. The Accent body-contouring treatment cossets curves with soothing heat reminiscent of a hot stone massage, employing a high-powered radio frequency to emit heat and Top 40 hits into the body and help tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The treatment is designed to slough off excess water and toxins, causing fat cells to shrink, ideally resulting in a reduction of girth. A minimum of three treatments is needed to experience results, and Affordable Aesthetics Laser Center recommends six or more treatments on the same area for optimal results. Alternately, a photofacial shines low-energy, short-pulse broadband light onto skin to gently heat the epidermis, encouraging younger-looking, even-toned skin by minimizing age spots, broken capillaries, and face tattoos of Millard Fillmore. Affordable Aesthetics Laser Center recommends five photofacial treatments for best results.
The Loft's team of hair whisperers coaxes combative manes into more manageable strands using the plant-derived Brazilian Blowout Zero formula. Stylists coat frizzy wires in the potion to lock in amino acids, smoothing tresses and fortifying them against injury during rounds of Twister in the dark. As the formula deep-conditions and de-frizzes during the course of about two hours, clients relax in the salon's upbeat space, where modern art and quirky décor play off the walls' calming blues and warm tones. Hair stays sleek for up to 12 weeks, enabling clients to spend less time flattening down morning frizz and more time perfecting impressionistic paintings with jam on toast.

Powered by far-infrared heat, saunas and body wraps help bodies sweat away unwanted pounds while melting pent-up stress like a microwave dinner melts the romance of a first date.

The Ibrow Studio’s owner and senior aesthetician, Nicole Willis, has been honing her techniques since 1999, and has grown so proficient that she shares them in workshops at the studio and on KSBI’s All About You. Willis’s specialty lies in the artful clearing and shaping of body hair using the NuFree soy hair-removal system. Although the substance resembles wax, it remains at a comfortable 98.6 degrees and fights bacteria as Willis smoothes it on to shape elegant eyebrows or tidy the bikini line. Her nimble hands further enhance eyes with Reese Robert eyelash extensions, and her expertise with makeup contouring and seamlessly integrating tiny gargoyles into evening looks reflect her interest in enhancing facial architecture overall. A skin analysis helps the team tailor facials to each skin type, and complimentary aromatherapy turns body scrubs and wraps into multisensory indulgence.
