Nail artisans at Art's Nails and Orchid Nails lavish attention on fingers and toes by filing and polishing their keratinous ornaments in indulgent mani-pedis. In the regular mani-pedi, deft fingers buff nail surfaces until they gleam; the deluxe digit makeover adds a sea-salt scrub that pampers skin like the warm caress of a friendly anemone, as well as a paraffin dunking that grants skin silky smoothness and a callus treatment that transforms hardened soles into attractive foot pillows. While reclining in the comfort of the salon's cozy pedicure chairs, relaxed guests can rest assured that their fingers and toes will be kept dexterous enough to thumb wrestle a stenographer. For an additional $15, customers may upgrade to gel nails with either option.
Licensed aesthetician and Aveda graduate Angela Clark partners an ingrained passion for skincare with something a little more tangible: high-quality products and high-tech equipment. She incorporates Aveda and Image Skincare products into her facials, which deep-clean skin in anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes. She also brandishes the NuFace Galvanic System to fight aging skin, sending microcurrents deep into skin to tone, tighten, and aid in the absorption of products.
Through nourishing, gentle, and noninvasive solutions, the aestheticians at Glow rejuvenate skin with facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion. They use quality products such as Silky Smooth, which is not tested on animals, and also apply facials and microdermabrasion treatments to backs and hands.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Medical aesthetics specialist Lisa Mangrum brings almost 20 years of experience and an arsenal of advanced technology to her med spa. Peels, photofacials, and microdermabrasions work together to refresh complexions, and a quartet of carefully calibrated lasers lets staff adapt hair-removal treatments to different skin and hair types. Injectables, such as Botox, aim to smooth out facial contours, and permanent makeup leaves mugs photo-ready, even when doused in Gatorade after a spelling-bee win.
Board-certified physician Dr. Lisa Perry has declared war on Father Time. Flanked by a dedicated staff and an onsite medical aesthetician, the doctor ushers men and women into her Camp Creek Medical Plaza stronghold, setting forth to vanquish fine lines and smooth and tighten skin with medical-grade spa services. Backed by more than 15 years of experience in nonsurgical rejuvenation services, the staff skillfully halts the progression of wrinkles by administering nerve-blocking dermal fillers such as Botox and clears façades of dead cells and spray-painted street-art cartoons with microdermabrasion’s multitudes of tiny crystals. In addition to facial treatments, the staff also performs light chemical peels, massage, and laser hair removal and stocks the spa’s shelves with Obagi medical-grade skincare products.
The two sisters who opened Aroma Soul Skin Boutique & Brow Bar in 2010 had more than simply beautifying clients on their minds. Instead, the duo envisioned a staff of knowledgeable therapists who could restore health to skin and nails, and teach clients how to keep up those results at home. Today, the sisters have assembled their team of aesthetic miracle workers who begin each treatment with a consultation to assess clients’ beauty goals and make informed recommendations to help their clients maintain healthy skin between treatments. Once aestheticians design their plans of action, they can begin affixing faux eyelashes, applying makeup, or waxing unwanted hair instead of just hoping it magically falls out. They also protect nails with moisturizers and coats of polish during warm lavender manicures, and cleanse, brighten, or hydrate skin with a wide range of facials and peels.
