Taking their name from the 18% chromium and 8% nickel that transform regular steel into stainless steel, the staff of 18|8 Fine Men's Salons master grooming services to transform their clients into chiseled gentlemen. A greeter waits at the salon entrance with a complimentary beverage for each client and guides him to his stylist's booth or to a private or semiprivate treatment area for facials, massage, and other grooming sessions. Stylists carefully cut and color the hair of their clients, finishing Executive cuts and styles with five-minute shoulder massages and Bay Rum hot towels.
Technicians groom hands with MANicures and faces with straight-edge blade shaves and hot lather eos moisturizing shave cream. Guests can relax during 20-minute therapeutic massages to finish their visit and ease any tension built up in hands and forearms by excessive whittling.
Bella Derma Medi Spa serves as the noninvasive branch of Dr. Robert Beltran's network of medical practices. While his other clinics handle procedures such as facelifts and sinus surgeries, this medspa arrests the appearance of aging through laser treatments, facials, and beauty injections. Dr. Beltran partners with a staff of licensed aestheticians and registered nurses that specializes in erasing sunspots, frown lines, and the graphite marks left from their hybrid pencil-sunspot eraser. While Dr. Beltran calls upon three decades of experience as a medical professional to oversee the practice, the technicians call upon prescription Latisse products to help grow longer lashes and therapeutic serums to fight off acne and blemishes.
The staff at Focus Medical Spa understands that no two patients are the same. That’s why an aesthetician, certified nurse, or board-certified doctor will design a treatment package to suit each client after a free consultation. Using products from Obagi, Dermagenetics, and the med spa’s own signature line, aestheticians treat wrinkles and blemishes with acne solutions, lift effect facials, and glycolic-acid peels. Laser technicians also use beams of light to remove spider veins and unwanted hair. The lasers have other functions, too; they remove signs of aging such as broken capillaries and dark pigment, and they make cool sounds when you tap them with a tuning fork.
Overseen by a board-certified physician, the technicians at Derm Refresh Skin & Laser Center help clients refine their appearances with age-defying med-spa services. Their treatment rooms bristle with such equipment as a Sciton BroadBand Light system and a particle-free DermaSweep microdermabrasion wand, both of which help conceal imperfections and leave visitors looking as young as the tadpoles swimming in the Fountain of Youth. In addition to performing beautification procedures, the staff can outfit guests with invigorating skincare products from Obagi, SkinMedica, and Clarisonic.
