Licensed aesthetician Megan Elizabeth Majeran advises against ever looking into a magnifying mirror. No one will ever look flawless under the cruel gaze of that cosmetic appliance, she says, so why bother? This kind of advice is par for the course for Megan, who makes it her mission to make her clients feel good about their faces.
To accomplish this mission, Megan dedicates her full attention to each of her clients. Her calm, methodical approach helps them unwind as she applies Keyano all-natural products during her custom facials and peels. This emphasis on relaxation finds its reflection in the paper lamps, bamboo stalks, and palm plants strewn throughout the studio. Aromatherapy candles—handmade by the resident massage therapist—flicker and burn, filling the space with a fragrance as appealing as that of a fried chicken breast dipped in cologne.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
Forty-six-year-old single mom Leslie was so inspired by her first encounters with LED phototherapy that she became certified as a skin technician shortly thereafter. Today, more than 10 years later, she helps her clients eschew the need to drop thousands of dollars on injections, plastic surgery, and facial creams by harnessing blue- and red-light technologies. With careful calibrations, she has found laser therapy to effectively treat fine lines, cellulite, and acne.
The aestheticians at American Skin Care pamper clients' skin during treatments intended to give them a smooth, youthful glow. With the power of natural Pevonia Botanica products, facial treatments work to rehydrate parched skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, rosacea, acne, and greasy face, caused by sleeping on pillows stuffed with potato chips. Hair-removal sessions eradicate unwanted hair from the body, the Swedish-style strokes of holistic massage lull tight muscles into relaxation, and polarity therapy breaks up energy blockages to bring the body into healthy harmony.
The licensed aestheticians at Alluna Skin Care customize revitalizing facial and body treatments to the needs of each client, tackling blemishes, fine lines, and stress with quality products from brands such as Pevonia and Jane Iredale. The team personalizes services such as the Signature Facial, microdermabrasions, and enzyme peels to rejuvenate appearances and leave skin as smooth and irresistible as a laminated ice-cream cone. Professional makeup applications and waxing gussy up bodies before special occasions or nights on the town, and therapeutic massages cultivate relaxed musculature under freshly refurbished skin.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Russo completed a plastic surgery residency at Harvard Medical School. So, when he personally selects nurses and aestheticians for his team at Dream Spa Medical, each staff member must meet his expert standards to perform advanced cosmetic treatments ranging from injections to surgery to noninvasive vein removal. With SkinCeuticals and Image products, aestheticians revitalize clients' skin during facials, peels, microdermabrasions, and other services. Laser hair treatments rid clients' bodies of unwanted fuzz, and tattoo removal helps keep the grocery lists on their arms up to date.
