Skin Embrace Medical Spa & Laser Center's medical director, Dr. Ladd Atkins, gleaned his aesthetic expertise from a cosmetic-surgery fellowship at Tulsa Surgical Arts and a surgical residency at the Medical Center of Independence. In his ongoing quest to transform bodies with noninvasive cosmetic treatments and surgical procedures, Dr. Atkins leads a highly trained staff that includes a licensed aesthetician, a certified laser specialist, and no robots. Relying largely on the beauty-restoring properties of laser light, Dr. Atkins's cosmic cosmeticians extend their expertise to tackle everything from unwanted hair to unwanted pounds and offer microdermabrasion and facials to freshen fa?ades from the neck northward.
PureLife Wellness Solutions' staffers dedicate themselves to helping their patients further their individual health goals, coaxing toxins from bodies, battling cellulite and stretch marks, and working to help relieve stress and discomfort with aesthetic and wellness services. After complimentary initial consultations, staffers deftly perform noninvasive body-contouring and facial treatments that aim to tighten skin and shed inches so that patrons can more easily hide behind telephone poles. IV treatments further guide patients toward health, with cocktails designed to boost energy, provide assistance to flagging immune systems, or assist with struggles with addiction, depression, and chronic fatigue.
At Aravon Salon & Spa, a staff of smooth relaxation experts doles out massages, facials, manicures, and more. Let worries and cares hit the road as a licensed massage therapist kneads knots and rubs aching muscles until they surrender to their 10-fingered masters. The massage therapist will also pamper pores through herbal steaming therapy, which includes aromatic botanicals that hang heavy in the misty air, decontaminating the dermis and invigorating the senses.
A follicular fashionista weaves the bold colors and intricate patterns of a three-piece feather extension into lackluster locks, bequeathing noggins with bursts of avian flair and the confidence of a peacock at a penguin wedding. Each 5- to 10-inch feather is affixed to hair with a silicon bead, and the process usually takes about 15 minutes. The colorful tufts can endure washing, curling, and flat-ironing and may last up to three months, or until the feathers burst into flames and reincarnate.
Stonebrook Day Spa caters to pampering needs with a soothing selection of massages, manicures, and facials. The unique Valentine's Day facial begins with a deep cleaning, exfoliating, and toning ($55). The aesthetician's nimble fingers also attend to the delicate skin around the eyes ($10). Then, a skin specialist applies a mask made with chocolate, a blend of antioxidants, and the Colonel's spices (a $2 add-on). As the mask primps pores, staffers administer a soothing massage of the arms, scalp, neck, and shoulders. Hands and feet also receive reflexology treatment ($18), and then the facial-focused experience concludes with a soothing application of the Stonebrook Day Spa’s own blend of seasonally fragrant lotions.
La Belle Femme Health Spa evicts excess fluid and cellulite deposits using the sophisticated Biogenie body-contouring system. During each 75-minute session, a trained specialist places the patient's target areas in the scope of the Biogenie device, which harnesses the power of electrical microcurrents to emulsify fat deposits and erase cellular memories of fast-food dinners. A suctioning apparatus guides the transformed fat toward the body's natural elimination sites, from which the lymphatic system's sunglasses-wearing bouncers can escort it out of the anatomical nightclub. As unwanted fat vacates the body, it can sweep away stored toxins in the kidneys and liver, and metabolism continues to rev for up to three weeks.
