Licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and permanent-makeup technicians work as a team to beautify clients from the forehead to the smallest toenail at Uptown Face and Body Care. Tense bodies melt under Swedish or deep-tissue massage techniques, and dull complexions disappear after infusions of vitamin C, minerals, and glycolic acid during facials and peels.

There aren't many parts of the body the technicians of Rejuvenation Spa can't revitalize. The center's aestheticians smooth the skin with four types of facials?including one designed to brighten the complexion with vitamin C?as well as an exfoliating fruit-enzyme peel for the body. The staff also beautifies nails using gel enhancements and Minx nail covers. Like a nonfiction account of the dog who saved Arbor Day, the spa even makes clients feel better on the inside; two colon hydrotherapists use an FDA-register colonic system that includes a built-in ultraviolet water-purification system to neutralize odors and a regulator to control the pressure and temperature of the water.

Along the quaint, well-preserved streets of Kenneth Village, Ariada Salon and Spa's vintage exterior conceals a three-floor haven for modern beauty services.

Journey beyond the wood furniture and rich auburn floors of Touch of Class Medspa & Laser Center and into the private chamber of Premier Skincare Solutions, and you'll encounter skin expert Anamaria Saenz. From her tranquil studio, Anamaria wields a gentle hand and advanced technology to both brighten skin and slim down bodies. For her signature facial, she performs a thorough skin analysis to determine which techniques and products will best suit her clients' skin, then pairs her purifying approach with a neck and shoulder massage. She also offers cutting-edge treatments ranging from chemical peels to the stem-cell facial, which incorporates a micro needle roller to boost cell renewal and restore the skin's elasticity.

For the rest of the body, Anamaria offers three tiers of silhouette-slimming technology. Her Body Sculpt wraps expel toxins to help banish fat and firm the skin, and her infrared body wraps up the ante by infusing clients with detoxifying beams of infrared light. For even more noticeable results, Anamaria's clients turn to cavitation liposuction, which breaks up fat cells with ultrasonic energy, leaving them to be swept out through the body's lymphatic system. Whatever the treatment, Anamaria takes time to explain the procedure and recommend after-care regimens to ensure clients know how to get the best results from their service.

Skin makes sense to Avant Esthetics Skin Solutions founder Alina Karoyan. Not only is she a master aesthetician with almost two decades of experience, but she's also a biologist. She combines her study of skincare serums and treatments with her study of science to tackle skin issues including rosacea, acne, and fine lines.

During the Ultrasonic facial, she employs the titular device to deliver vibrations that boost blood circulation and whisk away dead skin cells. She tones skin with the help of LED lights during signature facials and unclogs pores with peels during acne-clarifying facials. Alina also removes unwanted hair with waxing services and helps clients burn calories with infrared detox and slimming treatments, which is a more effective calorie-burning method than setting donuts on fire.
