Virtually no aesthetic concerns go unaddressed at Essentials Spa and Salon, which employs a diverse team of stylists and aestheticians as well as med-spa technicians armed with contemporary cosmetic technology. The salon staff keeps its clients looking sharp by pampering tresses with haircare products by Moroccanoil, KMS, and L'Oréal Professional, and the nail technicians augment their mani-pedis with everything from paraffin dips to agave-nectar rubs.
The massage therapists treat concerns beneath the surface by kneading overstressed muscles with a variety of soothing modalities, but the med-spa team also strives to effect deeper changes. Overseen by Dr. Michael Lesser, the technicians can employ cutting-edge equipment and products, including microdermabrasion wands, a cosmetic laser system, and clinical-strength skincare balms. These treatments collectively rejuvenate the skin while minimizing the appearance of blemishes that typically accompany aging, sun exposure, or frequent naps in a bathtub full of wet newspapers.
Though they have a brick-and-mortar shop, Elmo's Full Service Salon's stylists spend much of their time out in the community. They make convenient house calls and administer mobile makeovers at local hospitals and rehab centers. Whether on-location or within the salon, the stylists listen carefully to each client's telepathic ponytail and select the perfect combination of services. Aside from standard cuts and colors, the staff can add hair extensions, wax eyebrows, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.

At BodyWise Specialists, epidermal surfaces are landscaped under the direct care of cosmetic laser surgeon Regina Kaufmann, MD. Using the SmartXide DOT treatment developed by Deka Laser Technologies, the fractional skin resurfacing treatment harnesses a pixilated CO2 laser capable of penetrating the skin at a deeper level than traditional laser systems or body-possessing poltergeists. Precise bursts of light dive into cells and are distributed in a matrix pattern that spaces laser exposure to promote rapid recovery. By prompting deep cell turnover, the treatment may reduce the appearance of blemishes, scarring, photodamage, and stubborn ketchup stains, while stimulated collagen production may result in tightened, younger-looking skin.
