Essential Clinical Aesthetics' expert technicians melt away subcutaneous body fat with a barrage of Zerona body-sculpting treatments. Each 40-minute noninvasive procedure employs laser light to break down the walls of fat cells in much the same way as lighthouses use lasers to break down invading warships. This liposuction alternative targets specific body areas such as the love handles, stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or chin. Zerona treatments result in very little pain, unlike other common cellulite treatments, such as lying in the path of a steamroller.
The team at Jon Ric Salon has one goal: make their clients look and feel like royalty, even though royalty is illegal in the US.

In addition to their full slate of hair and nail services, they also do waxing and makeup applications. The salon’s interior features hanging yellow lights, elegant wood-framed mirrors with pedestals, flowers, and homey lamps that make other fluorescent-light salons look like interrogation rooms. Conveniently, Jon Ric Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
