Beyond the light technology it offers, the beauty center also polishes the complexion with microdermabrasion and five types of peels, which are designed to shed dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of a new, youthful complexion.
Elite Emage's technicians employ diverse hair replacement and restoration techniques to keep clients' scalps blanketed in luxuriant hair.
