Board-certified physician Dr. Tory Westbrook erases veins and solidifies skin with the help of a Candela laser. Both the spider-vein treatments and skin-tightening treatments deliver an intense beam of light to the targeted cells, inundating them with heat and leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. During each procedure, both the technician and the client don safety glasses to look sciencey before the doctor applies the laser hand piece to the client's skin. The laser issues a light spray of coolant before each pulse of light to soothe and protect the skin. Each treatment takes up to 15 minutes and can be performed on all skin types, including fair, dark, and Claymation. Clients can learn more by visiting Dr. Westbrook's list of frequently asked questions or by scheduling a consultation.
As its name implies, East West Massage Therapy uses body-work techniques from around the world to relax and heal clients. Their team of licensed massage therapists specialize in relieving muscle and joint tension using a variety of massage modalities, including deep-tissue and neuromuscular massage, as well as Eastern modalities, including joint-mobilizing Thai massage and high-pressure shiatsu. Reiki masters and body workers, meanwhile, employ other traditional Eastern medicine and chiropractic techniques to relieve pain. Semi-private yoga classes help visitors take an active role in their relaxation without having to pen their own self-help books. Clients can also unwind in an on-site dry-wet cedar sauna, where the traditional process of pouring water over super-heated rocks creates therapeutic steam.
The luxurious services at La Residencia Spa have earned plenty of buzz. Among its many media nods, the spa was also named Best Day Spa of 2011 and 2012 in Boston Magazine. Aiming to keep its name at the top of that list, the haven’s professional soothers welcome guests into their elegant space with nail treatments, waxing, massages, and customized skincare. Makeup applications and airbrush bronzing imbue faces and limbs with flattering hues, and body treatments leave no area left without exfoliation, massage, and hydration.
Wholly dedicated to hair removal, the small team at Cleveland Laser Spa has performed tens of thousands of laser procedures between them. So confident are they in their proprietary LaserFast system that the clinic offers a two-year guarantee on all completed hair-removal regimens. This is because they know that any possible hair regrowth will occur in the first 24 months after the treatments, so if tufts sprout anew in that timeframe, the technicians will re-zap the region for free and plaster each follicle with a tiny eviction notice.
More than two decades of experience teams up with futuristic medical-grade technology to beautify clients at Vasso Skin. In addition to traditional spa services such as facials and waxes, the spa treats skin irregularities such as cholesterol deposits and skin tags with noninvasive Lamprobe treatments. The spa also keeps holistic specialist Janine Gilarde on retainer for Japanese reiki sessions. This form of massage employs light touch to redirect energy, ridding clients of stress and anxiety, much like a trained falcon rids people of their toupees.
