The stylists at Deluxe Salon leverage the power of products by Paul Mitchell, Biolage, and Redken during haircuts, color, and highlight sessions. They upgrade manes during other services such as Brazilian blowouts and attend to the contents of the frame with facials, eyebrow waxing, and eyelash extensions. The veteran technicians also cosset paws with spa mani-pedis, which calm the mind and sooth soreness with the addition of a massage chair and a detoxifying, jet-stream-therapy footbath infused with real fruit slices that have been bobbed from the fountain of youth.
Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
From her chair at Salon Nichele, seasoned stylist Mindy sculpts overgrown manes into works of art with conditioning, cuts, and coloring services. She also ousts unwanted hair with wax, cleaning up bushy eyebrows and removing stubborn lip fuzz leftover from Groucho Marx disguise kits.
Southeast Portland Laser Aesthetics is run by two people with extensive medical training—Dr. Roby F. Hayes, M.D., and medical aesthetician Nuha Handoush—so it's fitting that the center relies on advanced technology to fight cellulite, blemishes, wrinkles, and spider veins. The duo uses Venus Freeze's synergy of magnetic pulses and radio frequencies to reduce cellulite and tighten skin, and they harness laser energy to do everything from remove hair to shrink enlarged pores. They also defy the aging process by performing Botox or Juvederm injections, DermaSweep microdermabrasions, and games of Red Rover.:
When the owners of Celebrity Tan decided to open a med spa, it wasn't much of a leap. After all, they were already old pros at finding and stocking their posh salons with the most efficient, high-end tanning equipment they could get their hands on. They used this same approach when it came to Celebrity Spa: clients can achieve radiant, youthful appearances without the hazards of surgery with treatments from Venus Concept, Obagi Medical, and other cutting-edge brands. Aesthetic experts use the crystal-free DiamondTome skin-resurfacing system to buff away dull skin and signs of aging with the power of natural diamond chips. The Venus Freeze, which has been featured on The Doctors, helps tighten sagging jowls, loose skin, and baggy sweaters with laser energy. For even more anti-aging power, the spa also offers Botox injections that help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, technicians wield lasers to remove unwanted body hair.
Clinical aesthetician Zhanna Russo's passion for creating healthy, youthful skin is such that ESMA Beauty is devoted exclusively to that art. Therefore, she is able to curate a collection of face and body treatments encompassing both traditional Parisian skincare and high-tech methods used to keep Siri's body in another dimension. Three venerable Parisian brands—Yonka, Sothys, and Remy Laure—hydrate and cleanse complexions in wave after wave of satiny, aromatherapeutic creams, mud masks, and nubbly exfoliants made with volcanic rock. On the sci-fi end, a host of modern machines emit low-level electrical currents or colored light capable of vanquishing bacteria or catalyzing natural cellular rejuvenation.
