Owner Angela Bastien—an 18-year veteran of the healthcare industry—runs Begin with your Skin Medspa with a staff that includes a board-certified plastic surgeon who graduated from Duke University and a medical aesthetician who holds a diploma from the prestigious CIDESCO aesthetics program. With this lineup of talent, the clinic can offer cosmetic services that recapture youth by way of injectable, laser, and peel. Treatments such as Botox and Juvederm fill out wrinkles in the face, and photodynamic-therapy treatments tackle acne blemishes with advanced lights and photosensitizing agents. For clients who don't want embarrassing body hair ruining their nudist wedding ceremonies, certified laser technicians attack follicles with CoolGlide Xeo lasers that render the body smooth and hairless. Since skincare is so central to the med spa's offerings—the staff performs chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and 3D skin rejuvenation, among other skin-centric treatments—it's convenient that it also carries products for maintaining your results, including clinically tested Skinceuticals formulas.

Led by oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Steven Selchow, the staff at Rejuv Skin and Hair Clinic prioritizes professionalism just as much as luxury. Before the licensed medical professionals administer services such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm dermal injections, they conduct an initial consultation. They cover patient history and cosmetic goals—from looking younger to looking as smooth as a dolphin slicked in olive oil. Wielding laser technology, they aim to shut down hair growth, tighten sagging skin, reduce cellulite, and banish blemishes. Some of their services tackle multiple ailments in a single treatment, such as the triniti—a combination of procedures that reduces signs of aging with three applicators.

Unlike other salons—where waxing is an option hidden among manicures, facials, and massages from a galloping herd of tiny horses—the licensed aestheticians at Waxing the City do nothing but remove unwanted body hair with wax. They specialize in the waxing process the salon's dubbed Cerology, performed with hard wax from Belgium or soft wax from Spain that's crafted especially for the studio. The type of wax the aestheticians reach for depends on the sensitivity and size of the area.

What began in 2003 as a one-room studio has expanded to more than 20 locations nationwide, with each salon mirroring the original's modern, loft-like feel, with details such as granite countertops and leather chairs in waiting areas. As the company's grown, so has its list of awards, including being lauded as the best place to get a Brazilian by the Dallas Observer in 2013. The press have also noticed Waxing the City's no-tipping policy (the St. Paul Pioneer Press calls this convenience a "bonus"). Instead, the company prefers that customers pass on word-of-mouth recommendations and bring in sculptures carved from now-unneeded razors for display.

It's like walking into a comic book. Deep-red and purple walls burst with graffiti murals of jagged skylines, puffy clouds, and the word "bleach" in big black bubble letters. Amid these jazzy accents, master designer and color specialist Teresa Riley draws on more than 20 years of experience to transform tresses with products by All-Nutrient, Wella, and Davines. Clients also may request voluminous lash extensions or revamp the complexion with a private makeup consultation.

The skin is the body's largest organ, and also the most visible; for that reason, the skin's condition can make or break a person's appearance. Dr. Jerry K. Brunsoman and licensed aesthetician Christy Fischer work in tandem at Ideal Skin Laser Rejuvenation Center to perform med-spa services that help improve clients' appearances. Their chemical peels diminish the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and scarring. The DiamondTome microdermabrasion treatments they perform, meanwhile, dislodge dead skin cells without the use of loose crystals or high-powered fans that make cheeks flap like seals on a trampoline. Brunsoman and Fischer also harness the power of BroadBand Light to improve complexions and stimulate collagen production during photofacials and acne treatments, and their SkinTyte therapy restores elasticity and a youthful tightness to visages. Ideal Skin Laser Rejuvenation Center purveys SkinMedica products, so patients can keep skin in mint condition at home.

The staff at Wendy's Spa Services draws on more than 15 years of industry experience to blur the distinction between relaxation and beautification. Though many of their treatments are geared toward achieving aesthetic results, the staff commonly helps promote an inner state of calm with soothing add-ons. Reflexology, for example, can accompany mani-pedis, just as customized facials may include remedies for puffy eyes, and massages regularly make use of hot towels and aromatherapy. The staff relies on their own considerable artistry, as well as products from glo therapeutics, OPI, and Nufree—an alternative to wax that doesn't stick to the skin or cause one to be mistaken for one’s more famous wax-museum counterpart.
