The staff at Nova Medical Spa & Laser Center wants clients to be able to show off their natural beauty the second they walk out the door. That’s why the spa and laser center specializes in skincare that requires little to no downtime. Depending on client needs, laser treatments offer a variety of applications, whether to permanently reduce hair, tighten skin, or feel empathy for a barcode. The center also offers other age-defying treatments—including Botox, Radiesse, and Juvéderm—that reduce the appearance of fine lines by plumping skin or impeding the muscle activity that causes them. Aside from skincare, the center provides soothing massages from a fourth-generation massage therapist who eases pain and improves range of motion through hot-stone massage, prenatal bodywork, and customized techniques.
Pink and turquoise accents brighten the interior of Rock n' Hair, a retro-styled salon where stylist Gabriela channels inspiration from modern trends and years past to help clients look their sharpest. She replicates classic 1950s hairstyles such as lush finger waves, thick Betty Page bangs, and voluminous beehives like the one worn by Dwight D. Eisenhower. Gabriela can also give clients an edgier look by infusing strands with colors such as lavender or candy pink. Although vintage styles are Gabriela’s specialty, she also skillfully decorates tresses with modern styles such as ombre color.

Victorian vanities and stuffed leopard-print chairs pepper the professional home she shares with the other aesthetic experts and time-traveling big-game hunters at Bella Salon & Spa, where guests can further refine their looks with treatments that range from moisturizing body wraps to microdermabrasion.
Juliet Bettencourt draws on years of experience in skincare and massage therapy to soothe bodies with treatments that blend the principles of both within a relaxing spa environment.

Today, she matches that unique combination of compassion and clinical precision with products from Raya Cosmetics and other trusted brands that cater to normal and sensitive skin types. When she isn’t flushing out pores and polishing cheeks during facials, Juliet unties knots of tension with massages, waxes away unwanted fuzz, and waters tattoos of roses that have begun to shed their petals.
