Licensed aesthetician Gaye Lay regales faces with a procession of three facial treatments in her signature package designed to improve blood circulation, diminish stress, and destroy toxins. The 75-minute visage coddling begins with a one-hour european facial, which uses pharmaceutical-grade products and aromatherapy oils for a skin-soothing, sweet-smelling experience unlike counting sardines in a horse stable. A skilled aesthetician then smoothes out faces through microdermabrasion—which sprays aluminum-oxide crystals on the face to banish dead skin cells—or a purity peel, whose ingredients wash away dead skin cells and improve moisture retention. Afterwards, the Ultrasonic Skin Rejuvenation procedure can hydrate skin and reduce wrinkles with ultrasonic wavelengths, or the LED-light therapy transmits diode wavelengths that can enhance the skin's radiance and firmness. An eyebrow wax using the Nufree Nudesse antibacterial hair-removal system shapes eyebrows before they morph into eye beards.

At Great Expectations, Dr. Holly Talley and her medical staff have created a welcoming, spa-like environment where patients can make one phone call to book a gynecology appointment and medical aesthetic services. After earning a degree in biomedical engineering, Dr. Talley completed medical school, was chief resident at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and became board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. She went on to train extensively in Beverly Hills with plastic surgeons, internal-medicine specialists, and dermatologists, learning the latest nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. Along with nurse practitioner Jennifer Farmer, the doctor combats wrinkles with Botox and dermal fillers. The clinical team also targets stubborn fat with LipoSculpt sessions and creates customized weight-loss plans that make it easier to share an airplane seat with a frugal spouse.
Wielding the latest technology, epidermal specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates beautify skin from the inside out. A staple in facial care, the microdermabrasion treatment polishes cheeks with a diamond-tipped wand to buff off dull skin cells and leave faces as smooth and radiant as a freshly shaved spotlight. Next, a Hydro Wand swipes cheeks with personalized concoctions of facial products, employing exfoliation to shuttle serums deep into dermises. Newly softened faces, bearing fewer fine lines and smaller pores, can immediately return to their serious business of issuing smiles and frowns without downtime.
Permanent-cosmetics specialist Kim Seals wants women to look and feel beautiful from the moment they wake up. Having been in the business for over 12 years, the beauty specialist helms The Permanent Cosmetics Center—with locations sprawled across Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia—where she enhances visages with everlasting makeup. After working with clients to design the perfect look, the expert marks skin with natural pigments to create subtle or dramatic eyeliner, fill in sparse brows, or give lips a voluminous pout. Aside from enhancing natural beauty, Kim can also mask imperfections, such as scars and third nostrils, with her expert services.
Dr. Draper bolsters clinical savvy and an artistic eye with 20 years of experience as she and her staff augment appearances in a serene office. During the 30-minute glycolic peel, one of Dr. Draper's experienced skinsmiths exfoliates the outermost layer of the epidermis with an alpha-hydroxy acid, found in fruit and the more attractive vegetables, targeting sluggish cells to ramp up collagen production while controlling acne and fading fine lines and age spots. Minimally invasive SmartXide DOT CO2 therapy employs fractional lasers to resurface skinscapes with thousands of microscopic perforations. Ideal for sun-damaged, wrinkle-plagued, and acne-scarred visages, the laser hones in on specific treatment areas over the course of 90 minutes, promoting quicker healing time by reducing laser exposure. Dr. Draper offers medication to DOT patients to ease the discomfort of traveling back in time outside of the protective shell of a DeLorean DMC-12. Postprocedure, the epidermis may appear red, but the sunburn-like discoloration should fade within a few days.
