Licensed aesthetician Jenny Sampson clears skin of unwanted hair and blackheads and combats paleness with a collection of skin services. Using Rhonda Allison skincare products, she performs custom facials that help remove dead skin cells and sleepover graffiti from the skin’s surface. Her swift hand also swipes unwelcome strands of hair from the body, leaving behind smooth skin to be coated in a sun-kissed bronze from head to toe with airbrush tanning.
Microdermabrasion treatments are quick, 35–45-minute procedures that uses a diamond-tipped wand to abrade the top layers of skin and polish the dermis hiding beneath. The exfoliating powers reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and light scarring, while eliminating sun damage and dry skin and evening out skin tone and texture. Using a wand that operates on pneumatic principles similar to the Super Soaker, your aesthetician will gently blast away blemishes and buff your face to a healthy, happy hue. At the same time, deceased skin and makeup residue will be given a proper burial at the bottom of a vacuum. Come treatment's end, the skin will have a refreshed, healthy glow, proudly displaying the younger skin that had been patiently waiting to see the light of day.

For 50 minutes, a chief stress destructor will target enemy tension insurgents using firm but gentle hand-to-muscle combat, easing away aches in the deepest trenches and most hidden helipads. You'll depart the premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
