Helmed by resident physician Dr. Patricia Riddle, Oasis Medspa & Wellness combines medical skincare treatments with the comforts of an upscale spa. Medical services range from dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Botox, to laser procedures, such as hair removal, spider-vein reduction, and skin resurfacing. Spa services, meanwhile, nurture and invigorate surfaces via chemical peels and facials. Relaxing spa packages pair massages with other soothing treatments, such as reflexology, facials, and whale serenades.
Aestheticians at Flawless Skin Studio cajole lethargic countenances into living up to their radiant potential by way of custom microdermabrasion and facial treatments. Owner Elana Smith helms a nimble-digited staff that whisks away epidermal imperfections using nontoxic, organic products. The noninvasive, 30-minute microdermabrasion process ghost-busts the antagonistic spirits of deceased surface cells on the face, neck, and décolleté with a polish of aluminum-oxide crystals, leaving cheeks and chins exfoliated and full of youthful brio. The one-hour custom facial coaxes once-ferocious skin into smooth, purring submission, and it is tailored to fit individual skin types, such as oily, dry, or willfully indignant. The service is concluded with a head and neck massage to ensure complete cranial tranquility. Just as it helps individual faces, Flawless Skin Studio helps the community at large—$1 from every service performed is donated to the local American Red Cross.
Armed with doTerra essential oils, Myra Leysath?the licensed massage therapist and certified stress-management counselor behind Euphoria Massage Spa?refers to her business as a "stress-free zone." To accomplish this, she promises that treatment rooms will always be set up and ready to promptly receive each client. Here, she performs hot-stone and prenatal massages as well as treatments that can minimize the appearance of cellulite and boost circulation.
Skin cancer changes a person. Luckily for DeAnne Corley, only the discovery of precancerous cells was needed for her to divest herself of her sunbathing habits and instill in her a desire to warn others about the dangers of sun exposure. Her passion resulted in a complete diversion in her career trajectory, leaving her previous job to open a mobile and salon-based spray-tanning service that gives patrons a sultry glow without putting their health or style at risk.
Her trained tan techs now man the private treatment rooms inside Blades of Columbia Salon and deliver treatments to homes, offices, or surprise pool parties. Staffers wield a tightly controlled stream of DHA tanning solution, spending 15 to 20 minutes spraying bodily facades to ensure an even, streak-free bronzing. Once tans have set, patrons can show off summery hues that last 7 to 10 days.
The rasp of an emery board in motion. Soothed exhalations as paraffin wax cloaks hands. Tara, a licensed cosmetologist, releases an inadvertent symphony while working with guests toward the beauty goals of hands and feet. The stylist also draws on manicure prowess to outfit nails with custom art that makes hands memorable when a typewriter can’t seem to remember your scent.
