At ReJuvenere Medical Spa, board-certified family physician Richard M. Junke and his wife, Suzanne––a registered nurse––treat every visitor the way they would if they were welcoming them into their own home. Guests enjoy complimentary wine, coffee, or tea as they relax in the cozy, parlor-like living room, where a plush, cream-colored sofa offers views of dark-wood shelves stocked with homey knickknacks and products by lines such as Environ and Revision Skincare. After they've finished unwinding and checking armchair cushions for change, clients are shown to private treatment rooms, where Dr. Junke's skilled technicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists await to rejuvenate them from the outside in.
The cosmetic procedures include everything from classic pedicures to wrinkle-erasing dermal fillers, as well as eight types of therapeutic facials, each of which begins with a skin analysis to pinpoint problems such as dehydration, deep-set wrinkles, and acne. Beyond the day-spa basics, the office also boasts an advanced lineup of skincare technology, which includes a YAG vein-removal laser and a skin-resurfacing fractional CO2 laser, which was showcased on an episode of The Doctors.
The Serenity Facial (a $75 value) is BeautyQuest's classic countenance service, blending together deep cleansing, exfoliation, massage, and a mask treatment, all customized to suit the specific face at hand. The included hand and arm massage feathers the edges of the pore-based pampering with the finesse of a paintbrush manned by Bob Ross. Once skin is thoroughly scrubbed and glowing, a skilled aesthetician will use radiance like a spotlight to aid in the performing of a detailed manicure with soothing essential oils and warm towels (a $15 value). During the manicure, finger-skin and nails will be buffed and shaped until they're smiling, at which point they will be treated to an additional hydrating massage and fresh coat of polish.
Whether scrubbing free dirt from faces or waxing away unwanted hair, Inner Beauty Skincare’s owner Nadine wants her guests to be as relaxed as possible. Her tender touch includes nourishes skin with vitamin A and D during facials and gently exfoliating bodies with blends of aromatic oils and Dead Sea salts.
Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
After a serious auto accident, massage therapy was instrumental in Mark Banaszak’s recovery. Inspired to heal others, Banaszak became a licensed massage therapist himself. Since 2006, he has helped clients to relax, de-stress, and feel more like a biscuit mix with Swedish massages. He also addresses specific injuries and physical problems with deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial-release techniques.
Outfitted with hardwood floors, wall-to-wall mirrors, and modern furnishings in hues of cream and licorice, this full-service salon shoos away its clients' stresses as soon as they arrive. Sink into a cozy leather chair and let one of Studio 2000's aesthetic experts replace a dusty noggin frame with a new, modern crown that accentuates your best facial features and suits your current lifestyle. Or, hand over your muscles to the center's licensed massage therapist for an hour of therapeutic kneads and reverse knot tying. Massage sessions take place in private, dimly lit rooms that trade hustle, bustle, and other '70s dance moves for calming candle flickering and opulent linens.
Shanthy Jayakumar prescribed many medicines during the nine years she worked as a medical consultant for Mother Teresa Medicare in Sri Lanka, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of them in a typical drugstore. That's because her prescriptions consist of herbs, holistic therapies, and even certain types of food. According to Shanthy, many patients initially come to Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center for Western-style massages or organic facials, but return for the Ayurvedic medicine that she introduces to them.
Treatments such as herbal nasal cleansing absolve the body of physical impurities, and relaxing Shirodhara head massages quiet inner monologues or AM radio signals as a slow drizzle of heated oil drips onto the forehead. Panchakarma therapy cleanses the three Ayurvedic systems that govern the body by combining healing massage therapy with internal cleansing induced by carefully selected herbs.
