Guided by plastic surgeon and owner Dr. Martin Blue, the staff at Mirage Medi Spa cleanses and exfoliates complexions with treatments customized to clients' skin concerns, from hair-removing Brazilian and bikini waxes to medical-grade chemical peels. To ensure the staff meets high standards, each employee is handpicked based on their medical training and then encouraged to further develop their skills with prescription Obagi advanced training and PCA medical skincare line advanced training. At the med-spa, the aestheticians draw on their extensive knowledge during consultations. Understanding that each client's skin is as unique as a snowflake?s thumbprint, the staff scrutinizes skin with a complete analysis. Then, their creativity comes into play. The team uses that information to customize a facial, chemical peel, or microdermabrasion treatment, blending medical-grade ingredients to address concerns ranging from acne to rosacea.
Though they originally opened as Renaissance Hair Removal in 2005, the team behind The Med Spa quickly realized that their clients were seeking different ways to look younger and feel more beautiful. They would later changed their name to reflect the breadth of their newly added services, which now include laser treatments, skincare, and teeth whitening using Energist Ultra VPL and Aerolase, making treatments safe for all skin types, including darker skin. In addition to removing hair, they can target acne, rosacea, or wrinkles with laser technology, or perform non-laser resurfacing HydraFacials that infuse skin with moisture. The clinic also offers the Diamond Medilift: a noninvasive macro- and micro-current procedure that stimulates facial muscles better than watching Animal House and Beaches simultaneously on two separate TVs.

From within their cottage-style studio in downtown Cornelius, licensed aestheticians and makeup artists Casey Nelson and Lauren Knox treat faces to a menu of skin and makeup services. Glamorous purple hues and red accents fill their lounge—inspired by a French boudoir—where they tackle acne and aging with chemical peels and free pores of dirt and whack-a-moles with their 60-minute signature facial. Once faces are clean and fresh, Casey and Lauren gussy up features with a spectrum of makeup applications, from “just the eyes” to a full makeover. They also prune overgrown areas with waxing treatments for the legs, bikini area, and brows.
