Premiére Essence's knowledgeable staff members free bodies of unwanted fuzz in their elegant office. Using the state-of-the-art Cutera laser system, laser technicians barrage the melanin cores of hair follicles with waves of energy, causing them to melt like a witch accidentally walking into the splash zone at Sea World. Six laser hair-removal treatments should rid one's chosen body area of most fibers, though additional treatments or maintenance may be necessary. The Cutera laser treatment suits many skin types and can result in skin as smooth and silky as a shawl made entirely from butter. Those opting for a bikini treatment can upgrade to a Brazilian for an additional fee; call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Yahshua Spa & Wellness Salon’s holistic approach to restoring the body combines massage, body, and beauty care. The spa’s massage therapists strive to tailor Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and reflexology massages to the needs of their clients. Staffers continue this customized approach during colon-hydrotherapy sessions, in which they often offer neck massages to make the natural body cleanse more relaxing. They also provide facials designed to hydrate skin, decrease oil levels, and remove walking dead skin cells.
Accented by warm lights and soothing music, Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC relaxes minds and muscles with three types of massage and therapeutic foot-reflexology sessions. Each client partners with a licensed massage therapist to customize the session, choosing Swedish, deep-tissue, or neuromuscular techniques to unwind knots and alarm clocks lodged between the shoulder blades. Tension and pain are relieved during reflexology and neuromuscular treatments, in which the therapist applies pressure to specific areas to produce sensations in other parts of the body. Deep-tissue sessions release tension, and the long, flowing strokes and focused kneading of the Swedish modality inspire envy in Olympic swimmers and bakers easily distracted by shiny cake pans.
After working under platform artists for Redken and Paul Mitchell, master cosmetologist Carlos Flores opened Aqua Salon and Day Spa, a Paul Mitchell focus salon that emphasizes continuing education and training for its styling team. During services, the team unholsters premium products such as Aquage and Mitch, a Paul Mitchell line developed especially for men. Because the spa regularly styles both ladies and gents, the decor is neutral and posh, like the Supreme Court’s dressing room. Dramatic plants sprout from vases scattered around the spa, and suede seats and a cowhide rug decorate the lobby.
Lidia Mosquera, the medical aesthetician behind Med Therapeutic Skin Care Day Spa, believes that her education never stops. Though she's been in the industry for more than 25 years, she still commits herself to staying on top of the latest beauty practices and procedures, even traveling to learn about breakthroughs made outside of the U.S. or in the galley of a Boeing Dreamliner. At her day spa, she offers massages, body wraps, laser hair removal, facials, and other services that showcase her cutting edge expertise. Her microcurrent, endermologie, and cavitation treatments help contour cellulite in problem areas, and her staff also enhance massages with aromas of sage and tequila that impart the natural healing effects of the agave plant.
