Led by owner Dr. Armando Gonzalez, the team of clinicians and technicians at Resolutions Medical Spa use state-of-the-art technology to revitalize both skin and body. In order to restore youthful looks lost to time or under sofa-seat cushions, techs use approaches such as fractional CO2, Botox, and chemical peels to combat wrinkles. They also blast away unwanted hair with laser hair-removal sessions, and customize weight-loss plans to help clients drop extra pounds. To bolster these beauty services, massage therapists are on hand to quiet complaining muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques.
Planet Beach treats its clientele the right blend of beauty and relaxation. Visitors might relax atop a hydro-massage table, which uses heated water jets to soothe tense muscles. They can then get sun-kissed skin inside sunless tanning booths or opt for a luminous facial, which uses a bar of light to tighten and firm skin. Planet Beach also hosts Facial Fridays. During this weekly event, certified consultants design skincare regimens catered to each client's skin type.
Advanced DermaCare Inc's founder, Diane D. Lowery, earned a CIDESCO certification in aesthetics while studying at the venerable Clinique La Prairie wellness retreat in Montreux, Switzerland. Although her European education evokes a low-tech, layered approach to facials, Lowery?approaching 30 years as a skin therapist?specializes in the opposite. Her gentle facials promote firm, even tone with pulses of LED light and electro-microcurrents, and exfoliate rough areas with tiny diamond chips or water jets enriched with antioxidants. She attended courses in naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University to develop a holistic view of skin health, and studied ways to turn back the body's clock without triggering early daylight-saving time at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

Kelly Muzall, registered nurse and founder of Estudio de Piel, surrounds herself with beauty professionals who continually pursue ongoing education. Their credentials, like every DeLorean ever made, reach into the past and future?licensed massage therapist Kevin Barry has more than a quarter century of experience in the field, but has broadened his skill set to include deep-water massage and spiritual medicine. Physician assistant Katie O?Brien held director-level positions at clinics across the heartland before planting roots at Estudio de Piel.

Though Barry and O?Brien represent only two of several professionals, they embody the level of expertise at Estudio de Piel.

The personality of each barber and hairstylist at imagine. A Barbershop and Hair Studio certainly shines through during each hair treatment.

The space was founded to counter what the owners saw as 'cookie cutter' salons that lacked personality of their own. Gentlemen enjoy classic haircuts, beard design, and hot towel shaves. For women, they offer cutting and styling, along with color treatments, relaxers, weaving, and braiding. Other services, such as lash and brow tinting, are administered with the same zest and creativity as the rest. Massage therapy and children's hair services are also on the docket.
