The team at Welcare MedSpa revitalizes bodies from head to toe at Welcare MedSpa. Inside a beautified consultation suite, skilled technicians and aestheticians work with clients to better understand their aesthetic goals.

With skilled technique and personalized service, Alan Reed brings opulent extras to every one-on-one styling session. Each tress-taming treatment starts with a calming cup of herbal tea, which sets the cranial table for a soothing scalp massage and rejuvenating shampoo scrubbing. Like a graceful dolphin or a narcissistic manatee, the formaldehyde-free Global Keratin therapy dives effortlessly below the surface of the flowing follicular sea to smooth, condition, and fight flyaway frizz for up to five months. Appropriate for all hair types, this fast, effective treatment holds up long after application, shielding each strand from harmful UV rays, chemicals, and existential epiphanies.
For clients with curly hair, trips to Synergy Hair Salon don't inspire anxiety. That's because the stylists specialize in cutting, de-frizzing, straightening, and caring for curly manes. The salon has an on-staff stylist who trained at the Deva Curl Institute in NYC. This allows her to not only provide cuts customized to spiraling hair, but also instruct her clients in the proper care of curls. For clients who want to change things up, the staff can smooth hair with thermal hair straightening treatments. They can even perm naturally-straight hair into perfect spirals to give hair a light, bouncy texture. No matter what style customers walk out with, stylists infuse hair with an extra dose of healthy oils with their products made with vegan nutrients. These help moisturize hair so that it is protected from the elements without wearing a plastic cap or always driving in the direction away from the rain.
Licensed aesthetician Raffelle St. John helms Your Image Center, where her two decades in medical skincare helps her clients achieve their ideal skin tones and textures. Within her appointment-only office, she offers a large slate of services that dote on the face and body, such as facials designed to combat acne and refresh skin and soothing massages that incorporate hot stones and aromatherapy. Peels slough off dead skin with mango and orange, whereas organic body wraps draw out impurities with botanical mud. Other services include waxing, makeup application, laser hair removal, and the opportunity to chase a laser around a room for fun. Additionally, Raffelle puts together custom group packages with manicures, makeovers, and refreshments that are available for on-location parties.
Susan Matthews has an unusual background for a salon owner—she acts as a guest host on QVC, writes on a freelance basis, and advocates for child-abuse victims, but isn’t a stylist. Instead, she draws her inspiration from a job she held during her college years as a salon receptionist, and channels this insider knowledge toward running La Vie de Luxe, a spa she founded on her own. She and her staff make sure that the space lives up to its name, which means "luxury life"—they dole out champagne drinks, gourmet snacks, spa water, and deeds to yachts before performing hair or cosmetic services. The spa's nailcare treatments make use of high-end products from OPI, Essie, and Bubalina, and its menu of services includes facials for both men and women.
The goal at Erika Lynn Massage goes beyond achieving relaxation, though that's certainly a part of it.

Other modalities include prenatal and hot-stone massage, as well as reflexology treatments, and they augment treatments with luxurious add-ons such as citrus hand treatments and aromatherapeutic scalp massages.
