Registered aesthetic nurse Carmen Kitts and Dr. Marlys Pike each boast more than a decade of experience, which they bring to every treatment performed at Tru' Identity. With an arsenal of state-of-the-art tools on hand, the duo is well equipped to help clients achieve head-to-toe beauty.
Clients can choose from an array of injectable facial treatments to fend off signs of aging. Botox diminishes forehead lines and crow's-feet, and dermal fillers work to restore the natural youthful contours of the face. The staff can also revamp gams with laser hair removal or sclerotherapy, which aims to lessen the appearance of varicose and spider veins. Other cosmetic services include acne treatments and tattoo removal, which incorporates lasers to lighten tattoos until they are only visible when viewed through decoder rings found inside cereal boxes from the 1950s.
Licensed massage therapist Lisa Reed manipulates muscles with holistic, tailored treatments that melt stress and expunge corporeal aches and pains. Before designing each massage recipe, Reed first interviews clients about their health history, specific areas of concern, and particularly delicate temporary tattoos. Expectant mothers relax with full belly support atop comfortable pillows and bolsters as Reed dances her fingers and palms gently across stressed bodies to reduce anxiety and relieve bothersome swelling. Custom kneading sessions lasting 30 or 60 minutes nurse injuries, soothe away stress, and defuse lingering pain from motorcycle-jousting tournaments. After their massage session, clients can spoil themselves with an additional 15 or 30 minutes ($15–$30 extra, not included).
The stylists at Studio D can transform hair into any style "from proper to punk" with a few precise scissor snips. The chic space where they do their work feels as much like an open dance studio as a full-service salon. Miniature spotlights loom overhead, casting a glow on polished hardwood floors, multiple wall mirrors, and cozy leather styling chairs. Staff members can create a flattering cut, highlight hair using Goldwell products, or sculpt sideburns to look like miniature handlebar mustaches. Waxing and facials are also available.
