Years of searching for painless and effective hair-removal technology led Dr. Granowicz to the Aesthera PPx system. At Medical Laser Aesthetics, PLLC, he and his staff prevent hair from slowly taking over bodies by using Aesthera’s noninvasive, wand-like device to flash low levels of intense pulsed light on treatment areas, causing camera-shy hairs to flee the scene. During the hair-removal process, the Aesthera PPx system soothes skin with a mist of pure water, rather than relying on aesthetic lotions or anesthetic creams. Other than whisking away unneeded bodily fleece, the center’s technicians also use the powerful device to rejuvenate damaged skin, treat acne, and chime in at Pink Floyd laser-light shows. Regardless of the aesthetic need, the practitioners at Medical Laser Aesthetics work with clients to create personalized treatment plans.
At Ferndale Relaxation Spa, massage therapists employ a holistic approach twice over, soothing the entire body with techniques from around the world. Beyond the traditional Western modalities, such as Swedish and hot stone, the indian head and neck massage calls upon ayurvedic-healing principles, and Chinese reflexology methods aim to boost the immune system during foot massages. Amid a bubbling fountain and soft music, the spa promotes relaxation with optional experiences such as rose petals scattered in candlelight or side-by-side massages for couples or presidential running mates.
When head stylist Tameshia "Me Me" McConnell founded Lillie D'or Salon & Spa in July 2012, she brought more than 15 years of experience along with her shears and combs. Beyond haircuts, the salon's services span from relaxers and highlights to facials, massages, and makeup applications. Drinks from the Lillie Bar refresh clients in between services, as do visits to the cozy waiting area outfitted with sleek, contemporary furniture.
Despite its name, Fingers Salon & Spa isn't all about hands and nails. Manicures, pedicures, and soothing paraffin dips are certainly among the spa's most popular treatments, but they never threaten to overshadow the full list of hair services. That's largely because the stylists are so talented at what they do, whether it involves cutting and highlighting hair or counting individual strands to make sure they're all accounted for. Other services on the spa's extensive menu include cleansing facials, massages, and hair removal.
You can't cage Image Studio 3's savvy aestheticians: not only do they perform an extensive selection of spa services in the confines of their studio, but they also travel to beautify their clients on location anywhere in Oakland County. During their signature waxing treatments, a deft wax tech pulls away unwanted hair from faces, chests, backs, and dorsal fins. For a more relaxing session, the beauty-giver can dish out one of eight facials or six types of massage.
With a mere flick of the wrist, Aveda-trained stylist Danielle Huey can banish unwanted hair from body, face, and intimate areas. Guests to her studio can round out the visit with a restorative facial or a signature lash perm, which adds curl to eyelashes and overly straight french fries.
