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.
Brandishing a Candela Elipse IPL laser, the trained staff at Yuvan targets a litany of pigmentation issues on the face, neck, and chest. The intense pulsed-light treatment dissipates complexion clogs obtained from acne scarring, age spots, sun damage, rosacea, or face-painting with glitter glue. Flashes of non-invasive light shine down on problem areas to disperse the buildup of pigmentation without scorching skinplanes. The treatment can also stimulate the production of collagen, which for some clients results in faces firm enough to fill in on drum lines that are missing snares.
The board-certified doctors at Waterside Dermatology and Laser Center invigorate and heal the skin of patients through an extensive suite of medical services. One such service, the DiamondTome MicroExfoliation (a $95 value), assists patients in evicting pernicious old skin cells, and is customizable to specific skin types. The DiamondTome wand exfoliates using diamond and chocolate chips, vacuuming away dearly departed cells of skin in a sterile manner, and clearing the way for younger, more rebellious skin to flourish. Next, clients will be on the blissfully receiving end of the Laser Genesis treatment (a $250 value), during which uses non-invasive lasers to treat fine wrinkles and erase embedded timestamps. The procedure mitigates excessive rosy redness, while helping to manage large pores and scars. After Laser Genesis, patients are able to wear sunscreen and return to normal activities, such as driving a car and challenging chickens to a road-crossing contests. The staff will teach newly rejuvenated faces how to truly shine with a makeup consultation, where a skilled makeupologist will match colors to each individual's face to create a super natural look.
