The aestheticians and stylists at Results Salon & Day Spa promote outer beauty and inner wellbeing by infusing their broad range of services with plant-derived, earth-friendly Aveda products. Knowledgeable coiffure artisans texturize strands with organic marshmallow root, nail techs focus on natural nailcare, and aestheticians and massage therapists nourish epidermises with Aveda botanicals. The salon and day spa also sells à la carte Aveda products, which can be shipped directly to homes or fortresses of solitude.
The epidermal advocates at Boone's Creek Medical––a physician-owned and operated center––reveal faces' most radiant aspects through microdermabrasion treatments. Visages recline as skin expert Selena Hoyle buffs away their outermost shell of dead and dehydrated skin cells, unveiling the luminous layer underneath. The 60-minute session leaves countenances visibly smoother, shrinks signs of acne and sun damage, and curtails the fine lines caused by smitten eyebrows that won't stop canoodling.
After working in operating rooms and urgent-care clinics for years, board-certified family nurse practitioner Wendy Wilgus decided to shift her focus toward aesthetic treatments. She sought training from Empire Medical Training and ultimately opened Prestige Aesthetics, where she performs Botox injections, dermal fillers, skin-tightening, chemical peels, laser procedures, and sclerotherapy with more than 20 years of experience in skincare products and sales and more than 8 years of experience in medical dermatology. However, she still shows the same concern for her patients' comfort as she did as a health-care provider, offering mobile treatments that can be scheduled at patients' homes.
The technicians at Salon Bella Dona & Day Spa emphasize team service, working together to bring out the beauty of their clients. They use Aveda products instead of fire hoses to cleanse complexions during customized facial treatments. The team’s makeup artists complement facials with makeup application, and nail technicians offer a full menu of nailcare services, some of which include OPI gel polish. Spray-tan artists utilize Norvell sunless tanning solutions to blanket bodies in custom airbrush tans, and waxing experts rid the face and body of hairs that are unsightly or unhelpful during swim meets.
Within the tranquil, century-old walls of the Belvedere house, the staff of The Secret Spa & Salon beautify bodies from the toes up. Hair stylists transform coifs with Aveda, Bumble and bumble, and Schwarzkopf products, as owner Richelle enhances natural nails with OPI, CND, and Gelish polish or extensions made from acrylic, silk, or fiberglass. A massage therapist eases tension with hot stones, aromatic oils, and custom pressure, and Dermalogica skincare experts clear complexions with relaxing facials that combat fine lines, acne, and premature aging. The spa also uses Jane Iredale makeup products.
Built in 1905 by the same architect behind the historic Biltmore house, Belvedere?which is part of the historic society?now has a slightly more modern feel thanks to the spa's staff, who accented its wood floors and abundant natural light with green plants and paintings by local artists. The multigabled house also boasts a projecting bay window, which makes an ideal spot for drying nail polish or testing the reflective properties of freshly waxed skin.
After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
