After 15 years, Unique Salon & Spa's dedicated staffers carry on with a large slate of services under their new collective moniker. A thorough spa menu is divided among categories of "beauty," "body," "soul." The "beauty" menu offers haircuts, color services, and makeup applications, prepping faces and hair for swanky appearances. "Body" services tend to fingers and toes, painting delicate colors over newly buffed nails or removing unwanted body hair with waxes. Meanwhile, "soul" offers up therapeutic massages and facials, refreshing and rejuvenating muscles and skin.
Like an Indiana Jones film, Ritual Wellness & Laser Spa is a mix of ancient tradition and seemingly supernatural technology. But rather than recovering artifacts, the spa is trying to recover youth. During skin-tightening treatments, the GentleYAG laser stimulates collagen production, which in turn causes wrinkles and imperfections to fade. When scheduled in tandem with facial rejuvenation acupuncture—a procedure meant to tone the muscles of the face and neck—the treatment leaves features especially bright and refreshed, without the aid of surgery.
The staff relies on lasers for IPL photofacials as well as hair and spider-vein removal. Otherwise, they smooth out complexions with microdermabrasion, peels, and facials. During an antioxidant trio facial, for example, they apply nutrient-rich creams and heated compresses to the skin to combat signs of environmental damage, such as fallen leaves stuck to your forehead. They also administer services for the body, from slimming body wraps to soothing massages.
With years of experience owning and running a variety of spas and fitness facilities, the owners of SpafitRx combined their acquired knowledge into one medical spa. Here, laser technicians zap away unwanted body hair with the Candela Gentlelase Laser, aestheticians whiten teeth, and spray-tan artists mist figures with an odorless bronzing solution that dries within five minutes. Their team also assists in anti-aging treatments and develops personalized attack plans in the battle for weight loss that are much more effective than berating fatty areas into going away.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
Pure Vitality Rx uses nonsurgical procedures to accentuate clients' natural radiance. Welcoming visitors to their boutique-like environment, Natalie Sharp?a board-certified nurse practitioner?and Dr. Eugene Raber present visitors with a range of aesthetic treatments. Like drenched flash mobs, the practice's Palomar Icon and Emerge laser systems shower faces and physiques with laser-light energy or intense pulsed light to rid them of unwanted stubble, wrinkles, scars, sun damage, or acne. Chemical peels thoroughly exfoliate the skin and reveal the healthy layers underneath, and the microneedling DermaPen procedure tightens skin by stimulating collagen production. Additionally, Pure Vitality Rx helps visitors by offering supervised weight-loss programs.
Overseen by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elliott Duboys, Embrace MediSpa's team can remove stubborn hair with laser hair removal. But the team's specialty is surgical and nonsurgical anti-aging procedures. Licensed aestheticians perform IPL photofacials to minimize signs of aging caused by UV rays, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating complexions; dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane, meanwhile, reduce the appearance of wrinkles via injection. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels round out the selection of beauty services.
