Exposed brick, stone masonry, and long, arched windows line the facade of NYAH Med Spa's cottage-like building. But what lies behind the beautiful exterior is an arsenal of cutting-edge aesthetic technology?fittingly, since that's also what lies behind the beautiful exterior of each departing client. To get skin to its most radiant, the spa's team of aestheticians calls on treatments ranging from the traditional, such as its more than 10 classic facials, to more novel services that use IPL, lasers, or skin-safe chemical solutions to banish fine lines and blemishes. They even perform a slate of teen-specific services that target the acne, oil, and eye rolls of adolescence, along with numerous treatments tailored to men. Bodies get their time in the spotlight, as well?luxurious body scrubs and massages give way to higher-tech treatments such as laser hair removal and VelaShape body sculpting.

Meanwhile, specialists further illuminate facial beauty with speedy LED teeth whitening and lush mink lash extensions.
Nothing makes you feel like a new person quite like traveling abroad. Hasnae Dhrif, the owner of Argan Salon & Spa, certainly knows this: the 16-year industry veteran has lived in both Morocco and France and works to bring a touch of European style to her own business. Here, her staff reaches for high quality products by brands such as Rene Furterer Paris and Moroccanoil as they transform exteriors with the latest salon trends from around the world, including multidimensional color and color correction, threading, shine-boosting keratin treatments and organic facials. A mural of a cascading waterfall is just another touch that helps to mentally transport clients to an exotic new locale, so much so, that many may swear they can hear the ocean when they hold the blow-dryer to their ear.
When it comes to making her clients feel beautiful, ReNu owner Feleshia Sams knows what she's doing. Years of work as a makeup artist and micropigmentation specialist gave her all the tools necessary to help her clients take on the world with a more confident stride. Some come to her seeking permanent makeup or medical pigmentation treatments—two of her specialties—that help improve permanent skin issues. She also offers fillers, eyelash extensions, facials, and skin-tightening treatments that make it no longer necessary to walk around holding your face taut all day.
Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure Skn Organic Beauty's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from organic facials to laser hair removal and eyelash-extension applications.
