Modern technology and holistic mindsets are equally valued by Nora Holloway. After personally struggling with the blemishes and outbreaks caused by acne, Nora decided to learn as much as she could about skincare and skin maintenance. She eventually decided to put this knowledge to work by becoming a licensed aesthetician and founding Holistic Solutions. Instead of allowing her expertise to rely on experience and past education alone, Nora routinely seeks out training with the latest advancements in the skincare industry. This willingness to embrace new techniques and new technologies allows Nora to better accomplish her goal of offering customized treatments tailored to each client.
Advanced technology figures prominently into many of the services at Holistic Solutions. Ultrasonic microdermabrasion systems smooth out the skin's texture, and pulses of light and heat energy can help fade hyperpigmented blemishes ranging from sun spots to especially stubborn temporary tattoos. Even when performing more traditional facials, waxing services, and chemical peels, the team still customizes every facet of the treatment in order to ensure the most dramatic results possible.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
Fine tuning the health and beauty of the human body is the main order of business at Soma Solutions Wellness & Nutrition Centers. The nutrition coaches on staff draft dietary plans and teach clients how to avoid consuming extra calories by never again licking stamps. The certified personal trainers offer one-on-one workouts and all-you-can-sweat group classes.
Medically supervised technicians see to the aesthetic nature of the business, working to rejuvenate the skin with laser treatments and injectable solutions. The GentleMax laser zaps unwanted hair, spider veins, and sunspots on all skin types using high-intensity pulses of light. Noninvasive VelaShape II sessions, which have been featured in Shape, target cellulite and lax skin with robotic massage.
Zena's Spa and Salon is only a hop, skip, and a jump from the University of Baltimore, where it's been a fixture of historic Mount Vernon for more than two decades. Restoration initiatives have kept the neighborhood youthful, which is fitting, since Zena's is best known for its age-defying beauty treatments. In the elegant salon area, stylists transform tresses with cut and color services, while in the spa area, aestheticians deftly rehab skin with exfoliating facials and full-body scrubs. Guests may also retreat to a private treatment room for a relaxing Swedish massage or hot stone therapy, which improves circulation and provides ammo for throwing at glass houses.
