Although floral paintings and patterned fabrics accentuate TRU Skin Therapy’s contemporary décor, they aren’t the only eye-catching elements of the spa. Anti-aging LED therapy, Thermage, and ultrasonic exfoliation machines line the center’s treatment rooms, where they smooth wrinkles and obliterate sunspots.
