The practitioners at Premier Age Management & Medical Weight Loss Center dedicate themselves to promoting slimmer frames and more youthful appearances by focusing on the medical, hormonal, and metabolic reasons behind weight gain and premature aging. They examine clients to assess individual hormonal signatures as well as deficiencies that might lead to unwanted physical consequences. Once they have determined underlying causes, they carefully tailor each patient's medical techniques and treatments, which may involve hormone-replacement therapies designed to increase energy and heighten metabolism. The office also offers a variety of skin-care services such as Botox, Juv?derm, and Latisse. Discreet office visits protect the privacy of clients, eliminating the need to show up wearing identity-protecting Batman costumes.
After earning the status of master stylist and certified colorist over the course of 20 years in the industry, Angel Petro opened her own salon in 2010, stocking its shelves with Redken hair products and toxin free Zoya nail polish. The salon's small but elite team of stylists includes a master barber who specializes in men's precision and tapered cuts and another master stylist who sculpts avant-garde hairdos and neighborhood shrubs. The team of beauty professionals takes part in continuing education, which allows them to perform a range of up-to-the-minute hair-color and cutting techniques for both men and women.
Color services impart natural-looking hues with products by Redken, a brand founded in 1898 by a Berlin chemist in a neighborhood drugstore. Every hair service includes a complimentary consultation for stylists to scope out each client's personal style and hair type, and waxing services lull clients with lavender-scented candles.
In addition to the lively salon, Vanity Salon and Spa has also created serene spa rooms for relaxation.

Trained in several modalities with a focus on relaxation, she often combines elements, like acupressure for targeting tense areas and Shiatsu for relaxation, to tailor a massage that meets each client's needs.

When they aren’t watching over their stylists or juggling combs dipped in barbicide and lit on fire, they check in on the spa’s technicians, who soothe their clients’ skin with resurfacing facials, chemical peels, and relaxing massages.
