Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.
Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.

Calling on his hair-removal experience at a progressive spa in Brazil, BodyScaping's primary technician and registered nurse, John Cushman, curates a wide range of noninvasive treatments designed to keep skin smooth and vibrant. Trained in the traditional methods of waxing, sugaring, and wishful thinking, John also wields modern laser-based devices to slay hair growth for good. Licensed aestheticians, meanwhile, handle the clinic's skincare treatments, ensuring skinscapes are blemish-free with an arsenal of facials, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion.

Rounding out Salon Peace’s menu of services, custom facials cleanse pores and slough away dead skin cells, and henna tattooing decorates bodies with glittering crystals, intricate floral patterns, and acceptance-speech notes for Best Memory Award winners.
Arch Brows Threading & Spa takes an organic, ayurvedic Indian approach to traditional spa methods, often incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to beautify and promote relaxation. Although all-natural honey waxing and brow threading are the spa's specialty, skilled aestheticians can also trim the physique with a tummy mask or extract toxins with a seaweed and French clay body wrap. Clients may also solicit a nonsurgical face-lift or papaya enzyme peel to renew the complexion, or request a henna tattoo in the shape of a moustache to fool a local barber.
