The staff at Spa Soma treats clients with a varied menu of aesthetic, weight-loss, and medical beauty services. They work to pair a gentle, warm environment with high-quality medical treatments, such as laser hair removal. They also offer seven different types of massage, dispelling the notion that beauty procedures backed by scientific research must be performed in a cold, sterile environment devoid of human life. These effective treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectables, and dermal fillers, which reduce telltale signs of age, such as wrinkles or tattoos written in Sanskrit.
A full-service salon complements the center's aesthetic medical services. Here, staff members perform customized haircuts and clip nails during express and spa mani-pedis.
Dr. Lisa Gulcher, M.D. manages a staff of aestheticians who use advanced cosmetic technology to perform nonsurgical treatments for men and women. A one-hour Laser Genesis skin-therapy treatment commences with a consultation and brief prep work. Sure-handed staff members then wield a laser handpiece, showering dermal layers with cascades of laser-light energy in an attempt to minimize the appearance of the fine lines, large pores, and "Fifty-Four Forty or Fight" tattoos indicative of aging skin. The gentle heat caused by the procedure is designed to stimulate collagen formation beneath the skin's surface and reduce skin redness. Sessions conclude with the application of an SPF moisturizer and entail a minimal amount of downtime, ensuring that patients have ample time to recover before they must put their faces back to work as portable dry-erase boards.
A waiting area like a fine parlor⎯complete with soft leather furniture, honey-hued hardwood floors, and a vase of flowers perched atop a coffee table⎯welcomes guests into the specialized laser spa. During Laser l'Amour's signature hair-removal treatments, Dr. Margaret Sierantowicz wields Palomar StarLux lasers to free skin of unwanted fuzz with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Clients strut from treatment rooms after gaining a boost in confidence for beach season or an aerodynamic advantage for human-cannonball-school-admissions season. The staff also administer laser-free microdermabrasions and peels designed to leave skin softer, smoother, and scarless.
The staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa aims to balance both art and science in each surgical and nonsurgical procedure they perform. Whether patients seek tattoo removal, a face lift, vein therapy, or lip augmentation, the specialists outline custom solutions tailored to their clients' wishes and their skin's fear of falling. These plans accompany detailed information about each procedure to help patients to make the best health decision.
Decked in Renaissance–inspired art, stately wood accents, and plush leather furniture, the medical spa of Ritacca's upper level focuses on bringing inner beauty outward. The spa's skin specialists use lasers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments to help to reverse the signs of aging without subjecting faces to hours of Saturday-morning cartoons. Customers can further enhance silhouettes with expert waxing, gentle facials, and applications of permanent makeup.
Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
