Inside any of Hairdoctors Specialty Salons' five full-service locations, skilled aestheticians treat hair and nails with a range of pharmaceutical and natural services. They trim and style hair, perform keratin treatments, and color strands using crayons or ammonia-free dyes and cellophanes. The staff’s work extends beyond hair services via manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians also add to clients' existing hair with extensions—strands made from Remy or virgin Indian human hair and attached to scalps via weaving, taping, fusion, or gluing. Hairdoctors Specialty Salons also posts informative hair-extension FAQs on its website.

Pit Center, Day Spa and Therapy Center welcomes guests to relax within a tranquil setting with spa and weight-loss treatments. Certified massage-therapists soothe muscle aches and pains with pressure and kneading, while facial treatments cleanse and refresh pores. Other services include waxing, body treatments, nutritional consultation, and body shaping.
It's only 10 a.m., but it's teatime at Massage Eden. That's because a client has scheduled a green-tea stone massage, which involves relaxing muscles with heated stones that have been soaked in the rich liquid. The idea is that absorbing the tea will stimulate the body in the same way that drinking it can, leading the accompanying massage strokes to have a greater healing effect.
It seems the center will try all kinds of ingredients to lend its services oomph. Another massage uses bamboo sticks to promote circulation and relieve pain, and each skin treatment relies on a different cream or mask, from the sugar glow's honey-and-oil blend to the anti-wrinkle treatment's collagen extracts and horsetail (which is actually a plant and not what it sounds like: a story about a man who likes oats so much people call him "Horse").
As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn’t come easily. That’s why all of her spa’s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog’s favorite chair.
The trained technicians at Ana Camargo Skin & Day Spa enhance arm aesthetics with skin-tightening treatments. Wielding TriPollar equipment, which delivers radio-frequency energy deep into the hypodermis, the aestheticians target superficial and deep fat layers to shrink cellulite and increase collagen regeneration for arms that look younger and tighter while waving or opening pickle jars. The TriPollar units heat up the body’s accumulated fat deposits, accelerating metabolism and forcing the cells to release fatty acids for disposal by the circulatory and lymphatic systems. The unit's three electrodes, which limit the fat-blasting force to the treatment area alone, allow for a noninvasive and nearly painless treatment, unlike earlier slimming treatments, which caused the current supermodel-overpopulation crisis. Although results may differ, many may see tighter arms in as little as one treatment.
