As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
Board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head-and-neck surgery), Dr. Steven Goldman of Beachwood and Westlake Plastic Surgery artfully reshapes bodies and wards off the signs of aging. He tucks tummies and enhances bust lines in his clinic's in-office operating suite, while the registered nurses, medical assistants, and medical aestheticians on his team tend to less invasive procedures such as beauty injections, noninvasive CoolSculpting, and laser treatments. The clinic's med spa offerings include customized facials and pharmaceutical peels, in addition to lash extensions, body waxing, and surfboard waxing.
Hard work does not scare Dr. Robert Rossio. He is not only a board-certified plastic surgeon and the medical director of Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center, but a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force. Dr. Rossio's discipline fuels everyone on staff at Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center, giving the team the laser focus needed to help clients achieve their aesthetic goals with advanced cosmetic procedures. The team's repertoire includes specialties in tattoo removal with a RevLite EO Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, IPL treatments, and dermal-filler injections. Dr. Rossi also oversees his skilled aestheticians as they ameliorate client's skincare woes with exfoliating SkinMedica and ResultsRx chemical peels, crystal microdermabrasion, and skin-loving reflective wallpaper.
At Yelena Skin Care Salon, the only things that shine brighter than the lobby's gilded picture frames and golden wall accents are the glowing complexions that flow forth from candle-lit treatment rooms. There, technicians customize facials to minimize redness or diminish signs of aging, incorporating products by Murad or blemish-targeting light therapy, and doling out relaxing upper-body massage and warm mitts and booties for hands and feet. Body-care treatments range from soothing Swedish massages to sea-salt scrubs that leave skin soft and hydrated, while Yelena's staff can also wax away unwanted hairs, leaving legs and brows as smooth as a dolphin's silk pajamas.
Janet Abbey, the president of Ohio MedSpa, knows from firsthand experience how challenging it can be to maintain a healthy body and positive self-image. That?s why she and her team offer an array of nonsurgical treatments and programs aimed at combating fat and slimming silhouettes. Ultrasonic-cavitation sessions target deposits of troublesome fat cells with the power of sound energy, and radio-frequency treatments help smooth out cellulite without the need for scalpels or rolling pins.
At Basic Essentials, a team of certified professionals offers a gamut of forward-thinking salon and massage services. An experienced electrologist permanently stunts hair growth during electrolysis, and wax specialists temporarily evict encroaching hairs and misplaced birthday candles with face and body waxing. The clinic's master teacher of reiki—who is certified in the practice's highest level—optimizes intra-body energy flow during reiki sessions.
