Unlike Daddy Warbucks, the robot sent from the future to protect Little Orphan Annie and her signature dimples, the techs at VelaSpa make it their mission to eradicate dimples onsite. Armed with the FDA-approved VelaShape hand piece, they harness infrared light and radio frequencies to scatter and smooth cellulite. In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.
While massage is an indulgent experience, it can also be a regular part of routine wellness care. To provide comprehensive care and meet specific needs, Healing Touch performs more than 10 modalities of massage. That includes everything from the deeply relaxing Swedish massage to a chronic pain reduction treatment. Their team is also accomplished at pregnancy massage and injury treatments.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
Hot Locks Salon and Spa's expert stylists and aestheticians have been at it for 25 years, but they haven’t stopped innovating. Along with Great Lengths hair extensions and Goldwell color, the team recently added new lines of skincare and makeup products to their arsenals. They use tools to craft new hairdos with salon services, spa treatments, and nail transformations. All services take place in a newly renovated, private spa space characterized by vanity lighting, framed artwork, and potted plants that clap their leaves to help clients feel welcome.
At Digenis Plastic Surgery Institute, Alexander Digenis, MD, uses his wealth of knowledge in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to perform advanced aesthetic procedures to enhance the skin, face, breasts, and body.

Dr. Leesa Richardson understands the complex workings of the body’s one-way valves, the veins.

The center also treats other visible skin imperfections with such aesthetic services as dermaplaning, chemical peels, and laser hair-removal treatments. Products from Skinceuticals, Obagi, and GloMinerals aid in pampering skin, fighting signs of aging, and supporting alibis involving the fountain of youth.
