Acupuncturists believe the body is filled with an energy, or "qi" that, if blocked, can leave people feeling unbalanced and sluggish. Licensed massage therapist Judy Watkins believes the same, though she strives to access this energy noninvasively with the help of healing touch therapy. She can also combine this treatment with massage in such varieties as Deep-Tissue and therapeutic for an even more soothing experience.
Smyrna Skin Spa's staff combines physician experience with aesthetic medicine. In their beauty haven, they moisturize the skin and calm irritation with classic facials, while medical-grade peels lift away dull layers of skin to diminish signs of aging. Other services include laser hair removal, firming body wraps, body contouring, skin tightening, and Botox injections, and the staff sees it as their duty to not only treat problems but educate clients on maintenance and self-care techniques.
Misty, the bronzing goddess behind Mystified Mobile Airbrush Tanning, personally administers a customized one-on-one tanning experience to each fledgling tan fan during each 15- to 30-minute treatment. While expertly dispensing summery molecules across fair swathes of skin with an HPLV spray-tanning system, Misty explains the process as it's happening and provides friendly instructions on when to turn and when to turn to a magic 8 ball for guidance. The natural, organic Tan Envy products are derived from locally sourced sunbeams. Rosemary, along with vitamins E and C, help to nourish the skin. Witch hazel's astringent properties join açai berry and ginseng for an antioxidant trio that administers microscopic karate chops to each oxidant.
With 20 years of professional experience as a clinical aesthetician, Margaux Turner has refined her skills at advanced anti-aging techniques, such as Dermaplaning and Collagen Induction Therapy. Margaux's main goals center around helping people love they skin that they have. She also performs exfoliating treatments using glycolic peels, vitamin C masks, and alpha hydroxy acids, as well as traditional facials.
Studio Skin Deep owner and licensed medical aesthetician Kristine Ross felt like she could never find the right cosmetic or cosmeceutical product until, one day, she decided to develop her own line. With advice from a chemist and spotting by a retired mineshaft canary, Kristine crafted products to treat everything from acne and hyperpigmentation to fine lines and wrinkles. The skin therapists at Studio Skin Deep now wield her vitamin-rich serums as they perform mostly face-focused services, including facials, glycolic peels, and skin-tightening procedures. Small-scale eye treatments deflate puffiness, and conversely, lip treatments work to bring fullness to the mouth without slathering gums with fistfuls of peanut butter. Staffers also deforest nearly any area of the body with sterile dollops of wax.
Master Hairstylist Bob Hebel expertly wields scissors, razors, and other sharp objects that can cut his clients’ hair.
