TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service. Danell Banks boasts more than a decade in the field of medical aesthetics, and specializes in chemical peels and dermaplaning. Accompanied by an onsite doctor, these two bring cutting-edge skincare treatments to the table. Stephanie uses Botox and dermal fillers to iron out wrinkles, and they both offer custom medical facials and peels to coax out color and detox pores. In addition, their office is equipped with advanced technology that allows them to perform nonsurgical galvanic and radio-frequency treatments that help clients retain their youthful looks.
Amai Day Spa’s staff specializes in a dizzying variety of aesthetic services, allowing clients to slip into a fuzzy robe and pad from technologically enhanced facial treatments to ancient reflexology sessions to precise henna-tattoo applications in a matter of minutes. A stable of licensed massage therapists stand by to deliver aromatherapy, hot-stone, and four-handed massages, and aestheticians provide traditional and luxury facials that enhance complexions with caviar, LED light, or bedtime stories about lotion-breathing dragons. Once they leave their private treatment rooms, clients can head to the lobby to discover a wealth of tools to maintain healthy skin at home, including designer products such as Skin Ceuticals and Pevonia Botanica.
The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.
Aesthetician Suzan Tajer started Ancient Secrets of Beauty in 1991, and over the years, she's specialized in two types of treatments: waxing and Lipomassage. The latter treatment attempts to fight cellulite with vacuum suction and two rollers that fold and unfold the skin. When it comes to waxing, Suzan can shape brows, erase unwanted mustaches, and make arms and legs so smooth and aerodynamic that clients accidentally take flight.
Her true specialty, however, is Brazilian waxing. Suzan saw the trend approaching way back when she opened her salon, and immediately she started developing her own techniques. Today, Suzan's quick Brazilian treatments shun strip waxing techniques in favor of wax that shrink-wraps around the hair as it dries. Her Brazilian waxing techniques have earned her a number of mentions in both local and national magazines, such as Allure and The Premier Seattle Monthly.
Nurse practitioner Olga Voloshina and her team of aestheticians divide their services into three categories, though all three serve the same purpose: to enhance the appearance of skin. The medical-grade facial services do so traditionally, with the help of cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliation in the form of peels and microdermabrasion that are individually customized for each client. The laser and light treatments are more technologically savvy. During these, intense light penetrates the skin, dissipating the blood supply to vascular or pigmented lesions causing them to dissipate, helping to clear up conditions such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage. Finally, they administer injectables such as Botox and Dysport to freeze muscular movements so that wrinkles on the skin's surface smooth out. Of course, before beginning any procedure, a staff member consults with each client to devise the proper treatment plan for the client's skin woes.
