Karen Cimmino, an outgoing stylist at Sunbeam Salon and Spa, enjoys meeting new clients and taking on new hair challenges or requests. She can infuse life into locks with highlights or all-over color treatments, adding flair to a new haircut. For those looking to get rid of unwanted hair, Karen also performs facial waxes that sculpt the arches or render the upper lip or chin smooth and fuzz-free.
Drawing from her Native American heritage, licensed massage therapist and aesthetician Nelissa Chamberlain integrates alternative holistic treatments and traditional bodywork to nurture her clients in both body and soul. Nelissa's specialty is massage, and she weaves reflexology and hot stone therapies into her sessions to treat sore muscles all over the body and gather research for her PhD dissertation about ticklishness. In the spa's serene treatment rooms, clients can achieve glowing, smooth skin with a wide range of skincare and waxing treatments.
You'll find stylist Debra Heidenreich inside the bright Sun-Beam Spa, her furrowed brow illuminated in sunlight as she expertly shapes sleek new cuts and carefully highlights hair in flattering shades. As she works, a staff of fellow stylists, waxing specialists, and nail technicians bustles about the elegant space, where tall mirrors hang above cushioned black styling chairs and colorful paintings adorn the walls. In the front lobby, a mural of rustic stone columns and arched windows creates the look of an enchanted castle.
Infinite Rejuvenation Med Spa is owned and operated by Dr. Dana Giarrizzi, who administers and oversees treatments powered by products from Botox, Latisse, and
Laser Facial Resurfacing from Fraxel and Clear & Brilliant. The spa brightens complexions with peels, dermal fillers, and laser treatments that also help clients reduce hair growth and the appearance of spider veins. The center also houses massage therapists, who leverage deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone techniques to leave guests feeling as loose and free as a penny in a wishing fountain.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
With birdcage-like wire around its dangling crystals, the chandelier at Snips Salon reflects the atmosphere's marriage of urban and opulent aesthetics. Stylists attend to clients between the exposed brick walls of the second-story salon, combing Bed Head and Catwalk products through strands or accenting features with TIGI Cosmetics. Services include haircuts, color treatments, and waxing for men and women. The team also pours complimentary beverages and furnishes a library of fashion magazines—the models of which can have their gorgeous hair brought to 3-D life with clients' newly clipped braids.
