In her more than 15 years of experience as a cosmetologist and cosmetology instructor, Crystal Caruso never stopped learning. She's gone on to become certified in LPG Endermologie cellulite reduction, Sudatonic infrared body wraps, and SO.CAP. hair extensions to bring her customers a well-rounded service menu. From her digs in House of Hair Salon, Crystal calls on her many skills to revamp 'dos with foil highlights, special-occasion updos, and Brazilian hair-straightening treatments, along with waxing away unwanted hair and stuck-on carpet samples that escaped their fate at a flooring store.
The Zinnia flower that serves as Elite Medspa & Wellness? logo may symbolize memories, but their powerful SCITON laser actually makes memories?out of wrinkles, spider veins, and unwanted hair, that is. Medical director, and Board certified and Harvard trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Russo chose the SCITON laser for a slew of reasons. Not only is it completely capable of handling a rogues gallery of cosmetic complaints, but it dispatches them with the quickness. Its high-speed scanner?which allows the laser to pack a wallop without damaging tissue?is paired up with a computer-guidance system that evenly distributes heat and teaches the laser how to play chess when the office closes for the night.
But the medspa is more than just technology. The staff also works with time-honored treatments to beautify faces, such as chemical peels, Botox, and Juvederm. They even embrace downright ancient techniques, such as hot-stone massage and aromatherapy.
Lasers, chemical peels, and injectables are the primary anti-aging instruments in Arlington Medical Aesthetics’ beautifying arsenal. The staff, consisting of clinicians and a laser technician, is devoted to customizing each treatment to clients’ individual needs, whether they want to address bothersome wrinkles or feed a fascination with lasers born from a past life as a cat. The team offers a full range of aesthetic services, banishing fine lines with products such as Botox and Juvéderm, smoothing and tightening skin with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and keeping complexions perpetually fuzz-free with laser hair removal.
Although it's not an NFL place kicker's living room, Mozi Foot Spa pays tons of attention to the feet and happens to air sports games on its flat-screen TVs. The staff pays ample attention to kicking tools by using ancient Chinese reflexology techniques—massage therapists apply their kneading techniques to the feet, stimulating blood circulation and promoting detoxification. They enhance foot-spa treatments with soothing soaks that include the relaxing power of jets and a steam, followed by a bunny spooning with your ankle. The massage therapists also help guests relax with a variety of bodywork, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
The salon's decor promotes serenity as much as the services. Plush off-white treatment love seats are divided by flowing white curtains, and pink flowers loom overhead.
Maintaining a client's complexion requires a keen aesthetic eye?but access to cutting-edge, medical-grade technology certainly helps as well. At Melrose MedSpa, the staff members possess the skill and the equipment needed to minimize the signs of aging skin, such as wrinkles, and sun damage. Dr. Canan Avunduk?a board-certified physician with more than 30 years of experience?personally administers every cosmetic injection.
Along with fillers, the clinic employs laser systems to address a wide range of aesthetic conditions. The estheticians use focused pulses of laser light to fade unwanted tattoos and hyperpigmentation and improve skin's tone by stimulating collagen production. Other treatments might incorporate vitamin-rich serums or radio frequency energy to treat complexions. Beyond the face, Melrose MedSpa also offers nonsurgical, body-contouring procedures that target stubborn fat deposits with Coolsculpting and Venus Legacy.
At Flawless MedSpa, the staff creates a nurturing environment where state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures pair with a spa-like emphasis on patient comfort. Her team includes medical director Dr. Nathalie Celestin, Lisa Allison RN, and aestheticians Carol Alessandro and Katie Casey, and together they pair their advanced knowledge of skincare concerns to clear complexions of everything from unwanted hair and unwelcome veins to wrinkles that showed up uninvited and claimed squatters rights. Injections of Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse temporarily diminish unflattering folds, and facials?fueled by Obagi and Jan Marini skincare products?smooth complexions with formulas specifically tailored to treat rosacea, acne, and premature aging. Laser technology plays a starring role in redness-conquering photofacials, as well as the FDA-cleared i-Lipo system, which works to remove fat from the arms, legs, hips, and anywhere else that isn't responding well to diet, exercise, or the silent treatment.
