A trio of three doctors and an experienced advanced nurse practitioner perform every procedure at aNu Aesthetics, specializing in clinical-grade, nonsurgical skincare treatments that aim to erase signs of aging. Botox injections and cosmetic fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane work to smooth fine lines, and noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and microplaning, deeply exfoliate the entire face to leave skin rejuvenated. To keep epidermises glowing, the staff stocks shelves with SkinCeuticals products and locally harvested pixie dust.
The Great Sea of Regeneration can only ebb and flow so quickly when it comes to healing and breathing fresh life into your shore of skin. Today's Groupon operates faster than a metaphorical body of water to soften and beautify your skin with a microdermabrasion, IPL chemical peel, or hair-removal treatment from Rajeunir Medical Spa for $29 (an up to $150 value). Don't waste your time attempting to grow new skin using a microwave and fruit leathers when you can lovingly tend your existing outer layer.
Roca Salon & Spa’s roots draw upon more than 35 years of styling history, adventure, and love. It began with Vidal Sassoon–trained hairstylist Rod Cavner running a small Main Street salon named Blondie’s, where he was joined by his soon-to-be wife, and fellow Vidal Sassoon–trained hairstylist, Rhonda. After marrying and moving to Hawaii for four years, the duo returned with innovative new services, design concepts, and island-themed nicknames for friends. The result was Rhonda's three-year makeover of the space, which now includes eco-friendly, energy-efficient lighting and appliances as well as eye-catching decor.
The couple's time spent island hopping is evident in the pedicure room, where bamboo reaches up toward a sparkling chandelier that shines upon backlit purple-and-pink glass basins, in which toes bask in hot stones and Hawaiian mud. Stacey Soble of Salon Today interviewed Rhonda when the salon was named the third runner-up in the magazine's Salon of the Year design competition. Cavner said, "The bonus wow factor is the entire styling area floor has embedded phosphorescent chips which cause the floor to glow in the dark when the lights suddenly go off!”
But the decor isn't the only thing that earned the company recognition as one of KC Magazine’s best Kansas City salons in 2012. The talented team includes hair colorists who have trained in London, Paris, and Beverly Hills, as well as skilled aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians. The color experts work their magic in an elegant, modern area with see-through chairs, potted white orchids, and long strings of crystal beads that divide the space and give visiting Spider-Men an easy way to reach the ceiling.
The team at Ageless Reflection Medspa and Wellness Center, which includes a board-certified doctor and licensed aesthetician, enhances its clients' beauty with a retinue of cosmetic treatments. Botox and Juvederm fillers restore the skin's smooth, youthful appearance, while IPL skin rejuvenation, medical microdermabrasions, and chemical peels call upon state-of-the-art technologies and NeoStrata skincare products to chase away various imperfections. Staff members harnesses the power of the FDA-approved eMax laser system to usher away unwanted body hair, and they help clients shed pounds by providing nutritional counseling, customized weight-loss plans, and purèed cauliflower disguised as ice cream.
Led by a board-certified plastic surgeon, Hudson Med Spas' aestheticians and medical professionals aim to restore bodies to a smooth, youthful, and healthy appearance. Four on-staff nurses perform beautifying procedures, which include laser treatments that can shrink fat cells, expunge unwanted hair, and tighten skin to give clients a youthful appearance smooth enough to get the kids' discount at a wind tunnel. In addition to medical treatments such as Botox and Radiesse, clients can opt for traditional spa services such as facials and soothing massages. Hudson Med Spas also schedules appointments after hours for an additional $20 fee, helping accommodate clients who need to work late stoking the sun's coal-burning core.
