The staff at Fusion Med Spa includes a general surgeon and aestheticians who help to whittle bodies into shapely figures with FDA-approved cosmetic and aesthetic treatments. Aestheticians rejuvenate faces with a coterie of services such as microdermabrasion, facial resurfacing treatments, and peels. They work to reduce wrinkles and lessen other signs of aging, such as sagging skin and falling asleep while watching golf, with Venus Freeze skin-tightening sessions. Wielding lasers, they dissolve adipose tissue and cellulite, remove hair, and reduce spider veins.
As Nicole Boeger studied at the Universal Spa Training Academy, she mastered massage techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. Since then, she has opened her own studio inside a chiropractic practice and added cupping, bamboo rolling, and body wraps to her menu of services. While she works, she counteracts friction and stress with aromatherapeutic essential oils made from botanical ingredients and Bob Ross's voice.
If Forever Fit Health Center could bring only one piece of beauty technology to a deserted island, it would probably pick the laser. At the clinic, its staff members use noninvasive pulses of laser light for many aesthetic purposes, from resurfacing skin to diminishing the appearance of spider veins. Per its name, however, the practice is just as devoted to holistic health as it is to beauty. Specializing in primary care, they also supervise weight-loss programs and train seniors in balance correction, reducing their risk of falling and boosting their ability to land triple salchows.
It's something of a Catch-22: the processes that have been developed over the years to help make natural hair more manageable are, for some, destroying people's ability to grow hair at all. So the team at Natural Hair Science have focused on their trichology department, in which researchers are studying the causes of hair loss and thinning. Supporting their efforts are a team of stylists who perform services meant to foster natural hair growth. Relaxers and perms are conspicuously absent from the service menu, which is instead focused on cuts, styling, growth treatments, and maintenance sessions for locs, twists, and braids. In addition to regrowth, the stylists are also particularly interested in prevention: many of their clients are children whose parents want them to avoid the chemical processes that can contribute to early follicle damage.
