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.
Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.
Ambrosia MedSpa is a physical rejuvenation center where bodies seek restorative sanctuary far from the aging hands of gravity and time. A professional staff of therapists and aestheticians administers a variety of laser skincare treatments for youthful skin texture and pigmentation. Free beleaguered body parts from biology's aggressive follicles with three laser hair-removal treatments targeting the upper lip, chin, brow, ears, neck (front or back), underarms, bikini line, or areolas. Syneron Lasers provide state-of-the-art hair removal for all skin types through the gentle combination of radio frequency and optical energy, encouraging rogue hairs to end their leases early and join traveling folk-dance troupes. FotoFacial RF treatments improve complexions by smoothing over broken capillaries, fine lines, and other blemishes to transform the appearance of faces, necks, chests, and hands. Or reverse the aging process non-invasively with three ReFirme skin-tightening treatments. Jowls, necks, and eyebrows will achieve firmer skin and regain enough elasticity to continue breaking the falls of amateur acrobats.
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.
Timothy Stimac, owner of the Bremerton salon and spa that bears his name, has traversed the globe in search of new cutting and styling techniques. His thirst for knowledge and frequent-flyer miles led him to train in Italy, where he picked up some new coloring techniques before hopping over to London to work on his cutting skills. Timothy now shares his international knowledge with his team of stylists, who work with professional products to imbue their clients’ hair with rich color and volume. These products include all-natural selections from Aveda, which infuse strands with pure flower and plant essences. While the stylists condition or clip away at hair, nail technicians stationed nearby scrub hands with butter manicures and mango passion pedicures, gently reproving clients who attempt to lick their palms for a sample of the fruit-infused salves.
Tram Le, the founder of Le Timeless Beaute, has 20 years of experience as a stylist. She and her team perform an extensive range of aesthetic treatments, such as facials, waxing, and microdermabrasions. They also specialize in sprucing up hair, styling and coloring locks with products from brands such as Pureology, American Crew, and Moroccanoil. Tram and company can even add feather hair extensions.
Corks and Canvas Events, like a work of fine art, came about by pairing a good idea with a passion to create. The founders both came from the marketing world, where they spent their days devising campaigns and events to inspire their audiences to take action. A shared love for art and wine inspired them to bend their action-creating talents toward a new goal—hosting painting and wine events in area wineries and wine bars, allowing guests to "uncork their creativity" and promote the burgeoning Washington wine industry.
Their idea took the form of Corks and Canvas Events, where experienced artists lead guests step-by-step through the painting creation process. Guests re-create various paintings, everything from lush vineyard scenes to preening roosters, while sipping on glasses of local wines.
