Dr. Keith Ly combines the experience of a board-certified physician with the creativity of an inventor—his past projects include a painless hypodermic needle and an anti-headache pillow—at PureLy Skin Clinic. Here, Dr. Ly offers clients a wealth of aesthetic treatments that help them project outward beauty and confidence. Surgical procedures such as Silhouette lifts—which use minimally invasive sutures to lift and tighten faces—help restore forms to their more youthful selves. Non-invasive treatments include skin-smoothing Botox injections and laser hair-removal, which zaps away unwanted fuzz and any barnacles picked up from sitting motionless in a tide pool.
A chandelier twinkles against the backdrop of cream- and sea-foam-hued walls, spilling light onto hardwood floors and modern, aluminum-steel manicure stations. But this spa-like vibe is only part of Splash Nail Bar’s charm. Its talented staffers pull from the finest products to revitalize hands and feet during mani-pedis—always adhering to strict sanitary practices. They also dole out luxurious extras, such as extended massages, paraffin wraps, and long-lasting gel manicures.
At her eponymous salon nestled behind the mirrored glass of Ultimate Salon Studios, aesthetician Stacy Sullivan zeroes in on blemishes, wrinkles, and body hair. With skincare products from Dermalogica and organic Hungarian line Éminence, she customizes each facial to accommodate her clients’ skin type. For more intense exfoliation, she employs lactic- and glycolic-acid peels and Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare peels. Lash and brow tinting enhance facial features, and an arsenal of wax and sugar paste banishes their mustaches, leg fuzz, and clingy area rugs.
Aiming to keep their clients looking and feeling great, Tropical Tans offers a variety of services, from B-12 injections and red-light therapy to custom airbrush tanning. Upon entering the low-lit, luxuriously appointed boutique, visitors can head back to private rooms to enter stand-up, lay-down, or hamster-wheel tanning beds. Or they opt for a restorative, UV-free session in one of the red-light-therapy beds.
Even from the first step inside Chau Bella Salon & Spa, it’s hard not to feel like you’ve entered a different world. That’s because every single surface is pure white, from the welcome counter and floors to the white cabinetry and chairs, all the way up to the shimmering chandelier that lights it all. Perhaps it’s all meant to suggest the purification that takes place inside, which includes facials that cleanse the skin and signature massages that clear the mind. Or maybe the bright-white decor is a subtle nod to the spa’s popularity with brides, who trust the salon to apply their makeup, style their hair, and, when the salon gets out of grad school and the time is right, propose.
The stylists at Diversity Salon bring a range of talents to their salon chairs, allowing them to treat hair of all ethnicities and texture. Services tend to the needs of both men and women, and include haircuts, relaxers, color, and waves. The staff also offers cosmetic services such as eyebrow waxing and makeup application to enhance natural features and cover up permanent milk mustaches.
