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. Laser specialists banished brazen hairs and remove deeply embedded tattoo ink through treatments. Supporting the team's broad range of aesthetic laser treatments is Dr. Jayson Dupré, who also helps clients achieve their finest form by overseeing the treatments rendered by medical aestheticians and a nurse injector.
Below overhead lights, which cast a buttery glow on Level 2 Hair Designs’ polished wood floors and white walls, skilled stylists chisel elegant layers and highlight strands with Redken and Goldwell products. Clients may also solicit the salon for a restorative facial or nix unwanted hair with a swift wax or electrolysis treatment.
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.
Founded by a registered nurse concerned about the chemicals found in conventional spa products, Eden Organics' award-winning spa offers services that bathe patrons in an expansive selection of organic, vegan, and gluten-free products. The oxygen facial revives skin by spraying complexions with hyperbaric oxygen, and the flower power peel which targets hyperpigmentation, age spots, and acne scarring. During the back facial, an aesthetician smoothens the dorsal plains with steam and exfoliation before extracting deposits of sebum and ingrown marionette strings. Therapeutic massages set clients atop thickly blanketed beds. All the while, dexterous hands glide over muscles with organic mineral oils, delivering fluid strokes to extract tension and melt muscles into sublime submission. High-quality waxes, exfoliating lip treatments, and fragrant scalp massages also help guests to internalize the spa's soothing atmosphere and its abundant flowers blushing over hardwood floors.
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.
