At Miu Miu Spa, everything comes back to the feet. That's because the spa specializes in foot massage and reflexology. The former uses traditional Chinese acupressure to jumpstart relaxation, and the latter applies pressure to points in the feet that correlate with other parts of the body. Both treatments impart relaxation and alleviate stress across the whole body, not just the feet.
Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa’s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
During onsite spa treatments and on-location parties hosted by Diamond Girlz Salon & Spa, girls aged 3–17 can wear cozy, pink bathrobes and feather boas while enjoying mani-pedis and age-appropriate makeup sessions. Friendly staffers round out the experience with upbeat music and snacks, along with engaging activities such as karaoke and mix-your-own facial formulas.
The founders of Body Medical Contouring—president Jonathan Penn and creative director Heather Hohweiler—set out on a year of travel and research, hoping to discover the latest noninvasive and minimally invasive body-sculpting treatments. After achieving success they opened a facility, which Hohweiler designed and marked with Romanesque white columns and green topiary-like accents. But Hohweiler didn't join Penn on his sojourn merely because she wanted to create a luxurious medical aesthetics center—it was personal. She experienced firsthand the effectiveness of the services their center now offers, having lost an impressive 72 pounds. As she explained on Atlanta & Company, Hohweiler used a potent combination of mesotherapy—a series of injections that metabolize fat deposits—and carbossi therapy, which employs medical-grade carbon dioxide gas to increase circulation and eliminate fat cells.
To perform their wrinkle- and fat-ousting protocols, Penn and Hohweiler assembled a team of medical experts and time travelers from the future. Medical director Dr. Tosha Rogers and two registered nurses target stubborn fat and cellulite with Exilis radio-frequency sessions or via the hCG injectable diet and B-12 lipotropic injections. The med spa's cutting-edge treatments have been featured in numerous local media, including The Atlantan Brides magazine and the Fashionado blog.
Bluefern Spa at Johns Creek instills more than a dozen rooms with details designed for relaxation—right down to the color of the walls. Soothing aqua blue accents complement the rooms' earthy green and brown hues, while soft music and aromatherapy nourish the other senses to ease visitors' minds by assuring them their ears and noses haven't suddenly disappeared. Treatments range from massages and reflexology treatments to sugar body scrubs and organic facials. The spa also houses a halotherapy room, lined with Himalayan salt bricks, where visitors can recline in zero-gravity chairs and breathe the salt-infused air to help relieve symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and skin conditions such as eczema.
