The brainchild of board-certified women's reproductive surgeon Dr. Kearns and licensed aesthetician Sadie Anderson-Ranov, Club Medspa offers a variety of laser aesthetic and anti-aging techniques. Dr. Kearns performs each laser treatment himself, calling upon his experience in more than 10,000 cosmetic procedures and his role as a preceptor for Lumenis, in which he has trained thousands of medical professionals in the use of cutting-edge laser technology. Dr. Kearns uses his expertise—along with thorough consultations—during services such as laser hair reduction, fractional-laser resurfacing, and the revision of scars caused by acne or a dance partner with a wooden peg leg.
After starting out as a makeup artist and spa director, Anderson-Ranov became a skincare consultant. She and her current team combat fine lines and wrinkles with chemical peels, medical microdermabrasions, and Botox; patrons can even gather a group of friends for a dermal-fillers party with refreshments and music. The innovative crew has also developed a savings program, in which clients pay a monthly fee for access to a number of popular treatments and potentially significant savings.
For 20 years, Pucci Salon’s talented hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians have been beautifying and pampering clients with the type of passion that earned the Bumble and bumble network salon a ranking as one of Salon Today's top 200 salons in the country. Beneath a loft-like ceiling, stylists are free to mirror the salon’s hip and modern decor with equally inspiring cuts and color treatments, or break the record for the world's tallest beehive using the best products from Bumble and bumble, Oribe, and Moroccanoil. Chic padded armchairs take the place of tired recliners in the pedicure corner, where experienced technicians decorate digits with vibrant polish or chip-proof Shellac.
While the salon sings with the hoopla of hair-dryers and the din of drying nail polish, a small sign hangs outside private spa rooms to demand “Quite Please, Facial in Progress” or "Donut Please, Hungry." Inside, aestheticians rejuvenate skin with five types of facials that blend products rich in essential oils and plant extracts, and use warm wax to strip away unwanted hair from the face and body.
