Skinsations Health & Wellness Medical Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
The waiting room looks like the reception area of a luxury lodge?a wrought-iron chandelier, dark leather furnishings facing a fireplace, oversize windows looking out into the woods of Mill Stream Run Reservation. This juxtaposition of refinement and nature mirrors the philosophy of Docere Medical Spa & Laser Center's team, which favors organic, medical-grade products and an educative approach when performing each treatment.
Overseen by Drs. Ray Seballos and Jeffrey Viscomi, the staff of nurses, technicians, and aestheticians rejuvenates skin and combats signs of aging through services including laser therapies, cosmetic injections, and facials tailored from product lines such as ?minence Organic Skin Care and Sircuit Cosmeceuticals. Image specialists also soothe sinews with multiple massage modalities and offer a slate of services tailored for men.
At Déjà Vu Laser & Medical Spa, skilled aestheticians smoothen mugs rumpled by acne or aging with microdermabrasion treatments for the face and neck. Wielding a stainless-steel wand from the DiamondTome resurfacing system, skin wizards conjure smoother complexions by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any facial cobwebs to reveal new skin underneath. Each wand's tip boasts diamond chips around a vacuum, sloughing away deadbeat cells while light suction immediately absorbs them. A selection of wands enables aestheticians to customize each treatment for patients' individual needs. Over time, treatments can erode many of the symptoms of aging, from fine lines and acne scarring to hyperpigmentation and "Caesar was here" tattoos.
The Skin Care Center of Cleveland's pulchritude-promoting services target common problems, such as acne, aging, and pigmentation, with treatments personalized for each client's skin type. Enhance your exterior with a wrinkle-razing age-defying treatment, blemish-blasting skin-correcting treatment, collagen-stimulating medical microdermabrasion, or face-zamboni-ing 45-minute micropeel.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup, and pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. Then once you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
Lynnette Simmons is an aesthetician, but she's also got the listening skills of the best bartenders. A skin care veteran with more than 10 years of experience, she spends most of her time helping clients look radiant with microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and organic masks. And while she works, she talks—not only educating her clients on proper skin care but also listening to their concerns. Among her proudest moments, she says, "[One client told me] that I cured their acne. They had seen [a] dermatologist for years with no results."
Those chats usually go deeper than skincare, too. Gifted with a sympathetic ear and sage advice, Lynnette has come to know her clients well. "I love getting to know clients and becoming close to them," she says. "Like my own family."
