Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, and registered nurses who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
Electrologist Louise Chaffins pours more than 20 years of experience into Bluegrass Electrolysis and Laser Clinic, where she oversees a friendly staff of capable technicians. Louise and her comrades clear bodies of unwanted hair with electrolysis and laser hair-removal procedures, and they spruce up visages plagued by wrinkles and Rorschach inkblot-shaped age spots with noninvasive facial services such as microcurrent facial toning and infrared light therapy. A complimentary consultation precedes each treatment, ensuring clients receive plans tailored to their individual needs.
During Skin Secrets' crystal-free microdermabrasion peel, a skilled technician uses a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate the skin, gently polishing away age spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and even mild acne scarring. To keep idle hands and feet from growing restless and sabotaging facial fun, a hydrating paraffin hand treatment, rejuvenating foot mask, and soothing hand and foot massage are included in the treatment, leaving all five of the body's extremities coddled, soothed, and smoothed. The comfy confines of Skin Secrets' studio boast soft lighting and cozy furnishings, creating an inviting atmosphere for clients to relax and unwind before every skin-rejuvenating experience.
The beauty technicians at Millie's Salon & Spa tend to muscles and skin with environmentally friendly products, releasing visitors back into the world with a clearer mind and dermis. Hands help relieve tension during an hour-long Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique that uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Technicians treat above-shoulder areas to hour-long Aveda Outer Peace facials, which administer a gentle scrubbing with products formulated to fight blemishes and imperfections on the face. After aiming to exfoliate away bumps, grime, and post-it notes, aestheticians perform extractions to purge pores of toxins and build-up. The treatment, which aims to clear breakouts and protect against future flaws, works best in a three-week series.
Susan Payton, ARNP, leads Renu MedSpa's team of beautifying professionals in decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles with Dysport, or in sculpting skin or bodies with fat-reducing Exilis treatments. FDA-approved Dysport injections penetrate superficial facial muscles, aiming to inhibit muscle contraction with a botulinum toxin, diminishing the appearance of lines and smoothing wrinkles more effectively than sticking your face in a wind tunnel. Results may be seen in as few as three days, and treatment requires maintenance in order to last up to five months.
The medical professionals at Allure Aesthetic Associates help clients reveal their true beauty with a collection of nonsurgical skin treatments. From wrinkle fighting to hair removal, the med spa's procedures boost confidence levels via lasers and minimally invasive injections—not scalpels. The doctor guides patients on journeys to weight loss, while the aesthetic nurse specialist brings an extensive nursing background to rejuvenating treatments and spirited games of Trivial Pursuit.
