Amid the industrial-chic serenity of The Spa at Gasoline Alley, a team of beauticians imbue clients with a sense of calm through relaxing massages and skincare treatments. Therapists shoo away aches and untie painful knots with four styles of massage, and aestheticians gently wax away unwanted hair from more than 10 areas of the body, including lower legs and underarms. The skincare specialists also smooth epidermises with custom facials that are expertly tailored to address each client’s specific skin type and condition.
La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center?s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Thermilift, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin?s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique?s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.

Vallon MediSpa's classic european facial, a customized treatment, is a time-tested method of purifying pores, evening tone, and softening skin. During the 60-minute facial, a dermal doyen will cleanse the surface of the skin before sloughing off defunct cells with gentle exfoliation and subliminal insults.
The team of five doctors at Eye Physicians of Northhampton employ modern techniques to help patients see better. Patients can find their perfect pair of frames in the optical shop, but others looking to lose the "four eyes" nickname can explore advanced surgical treatments. LASIK surgery restructures the cornea to improve nearsightedness and farsightedness, and the Allegretto Wave laser reduces secondary vision troubles such as night vision, halos, and the inability to see through lead.
At Amherst Laser and Skin Care Center, aesthetic treatments go beyond ordinary waxing treatments and cleansing facials. Along with these basic offerings, Dr. Robert Weitzman and his dedicated staff use state-of-the-art lasers for a number of treatments, from banishing unwanted hair to spurring hair growth with a futuristic iGrow laser helmet. Other laser treatments include skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and tattoo removal.
Aestheticians also incorporate natural and holistic elements into a number of treatments designed to nourish the skin and help maintain a refreshed, youthful appearance. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a DiamondTome wand helps remove dead skin cells. The process can promote new skin cell growth and stimulate collagen while treating fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
