Led by Dr. Landon Pryor, the skilled technicians at True Laser use Candela GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal and collagen-stimulating skin-rejuvenation treatments. They calibrate the laser's wavelength to suit either purpose, and a cooling device spritzes skin with cryogen immediately after the laser's pulses to make treatments more comfortable for clients.
But not all of True Laser's services are laser-based. Aestheticians polish away dead and dull skin with microdermabrasion treatments, using pure baking-soda crystals—rather than the more commonly used aluminum oxide—to avoid unnecessary skin irritation. They also stock glo therapeutics skincare products—infused with vitamin C and ultrafine fairy dust—for facials tailored toward each client's needs, and they administer facial peels to target signs of aging.
An aesthetician custom blends wax to remove unwanted body hair on all skin types. Hairy backs, chests, legs, and arms on men and women become sleek surfaces, and overgrown eyebrows transform into perfect replicas of the Gateway Arch. The aesthetician also focuses attention on faces with custom facials and microdermabrasion treatments.
Under the guidance of owner and plastic surgeon Dr. Landon Pryor, the technicians at True Laser zap unwanted body hair, wrinkles, and spider veins with professional medspa laser systems by Candela. These specialized lasers target pigments in the skin, including those lying within the follicle of hair, a blood vessel, or swallowed crayon. Light energy works to eradicate the offending substance, leaving the skin clear and smooth. The office also offers light-free treatments, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, which help render soft, smooth complexions through exfoliation.
Renew Skin Spa’s team of aestheticians and technicians keeps bodies youthful and minds sharp, treating cosmetic concerns with personalized spa and med-spa sessions and educating clients on new skincare strategies. The team gets to know each set of skin through comprehensive consultations, which clue clients in to pressing dermatological concerns and help technicians recommend the most appropriate treatments. From there, techs can enrich dermal layers with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich balms, conceal signs of aging with skin-firming LED or ultrasound therapies, or soothe deeper stress with any of numerous massage modalities. Much like an arm-wrestling match with the Speaker of the House, each treatment requires that clients schedule an appointment beforehand.
A division of Provena Saint Joseph Hospital, Bella Vie Medical Spa rejuvenates skin with services performed under the direction of board-certified internal-medicine physician Dr. Ana Gephart. As Janelle Walker reported in the Courier-News, Dr. Gephart's journey toward skincare services began when a friend and former burn victim?now an aesthetician at Bella Vie?convinced her to explore the life-changing skin treatments available through modern laser technology. Today, Dr. Gephart keeps her staff abreast of the latest developments in the industry to keep expanding an aesthetic arsenal of ways to boost clients' confidence and self-esteem.
Complimentary consultations help determine the best course of action for each patient, be it a long-lasting Radiesse injection to combat wrinkles, a medical-grade peel, or a laser skin treatment to address age spots. The spa's walls broadcast colorful artwork and calming phrases that inspire guests to imagine peace, count their blessings, and brush their skin 50 times each night before bed.
