A branch of Primary Health Care of Millington, the PHC Medical Spa adds an aesthetic outpost to the organization's body of services. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Regina Lindsey, who either performs or supervises all treatments, the med-spa staff helps to treat problematic skin conditions, slow or eliminate unwanted hair growth via laser, and lessen tension with relaxation and medical massage. Experienced tattoo artist Mamie Shannon fine-tunes faces with permanent makeup, and a range of laser treatments, peels, and cosmetic injections rejuvenate the skin and help lessen the tiny accordion pleats left by aging.
Step inside Salon 1550 to be enveloped in a vivacious lime-green glow and showered with attentive service. The modern, upscale salon is dressed to the nines in cushy amenities, including cozy black salon chairs, large flat-screen TVs, and slick, solid flooring that never opens to a netherlake of shark-infested lava without at least two weeks notice. During your visit, one of the salon's skilled, professional wax-wielders will swiftly evict rogue whiskers from your upper lip ($16) and lower forehead ($16 for an eyebrow wax), leaving behind only the strands that complement your features and speak fluent French. With waxing, you avoid time-consuming tweezing and painful razor-related cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.

Ameerah Jones, a stylist at A Better Image Beauty and Barber, loves working on hair of all textures. When Groupon asked what her favorite service was to perform, she was hard-pressed to narrow it down to just one: braiding children's hair, adding silkening treatments to a new haircut, and restoring damaged hair with conditioner treatments—she enjoys them all. One thing she's absolutely sure about, however, is the best part of her job: "working with people and making [them] feel beautiful!"
