Lush Spa: Choice Skincare owner and lead aesthetician Renee Maloney started her career like many others in the spa business: after graduating from the Aveda Institute, she earned her license and got a skincare job in a high-traffic spa. But eventually, she longed for a new challenge. Wanting to learn the medical side of the beauty world, Maloney went to work for a plastic surgeon and became certified in a list of aesthetic medical treatments as long as the instructions for building a spaceship. With her new knowledge in IPL photofacials, peels, and laser hair removal, Maloney later opened Lush Spa and never looked back. Her modern and minimalistic studio eschews the sterile feel of a doctor's office in favor of the welcoming warmth of a spa with gilded wall art and a mix of modern and classic textures. Each day, Maloney and her team of trained aestheticians combine the power of medical-grade treatments with the luxurious and relaxing elements of a top spa—including facials and waxing—to give clients a warm and professional experience that meets all their needs.

Feel Beautiful's aesthetic artist Daiquiri Rankin, RN, enlivens soul vehicles with youth-restoring and non-invasive treatments such as Exilis body contouring. The up to 45-minute laser treatments attempt to shrink fat cells by aiming radio-frequency waves and electrical currents at unwanted adipose areas in a wealth of trouble spots, including the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Jealous jowls, arms, necks, and adorably rotund cuticles desiring an unruffled silhouette are also eligible for this affectionate heat-hug. Additionally, the therapy can stimulate subcutaneous collagen production that tightens skin, potentially reducing the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. Reported by many to be painless, most clients experience a mild warming sensation reminiscent of hugs from a dryer-fresh teddy bear. Feel Beautiful recommends a course of four–five treatments over a six-week period for optimal results.
Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
