To more effectively treat a range of skin and hair types, the medically supervised clinicians at Style MedSpa/Laser Hair Removal Center utilize a range of advanced technologies, including long-pulsed Alexandrite, Diode, YAG, and IPL cosmetic laser systems. Although these systems mainly target unwanted stubble, the staff also treats signs of sun damage, fine lines, and spider veins with similar laser therapies. Botox and other dermal fillers are also available to combat aging. Even the teeth-whitening treatments and exfoliating facials rely on cutting-edge equipment from NASA's top-secret spas.
With his long list of degrees, certifications, and hospital affiliations, Dr. Mark P. Solomon—who has been featured as an expert source in such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer—sets any client who may be intimidated by cosmetic surgery at ease. Dr. Solomon harnesses his two decades of expertise to enhance appearances with a wide range of procedures, including liposuction, face lifts, and Botox. He also oversees a staff of medical aestheticians who perform noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and laser hair removal, which blasts unwanted hair with laser-tag guns.
Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.
Hairs To You's services include cuts, color, waxing, tanning, and more. Ladies can get their locks shampooed, cut, and styled ($48), while dudes can get similarly dappered for $22. A single-process coloring (first time or new color, $43) or a root touch-up ($36) will turn the most colorless coif into Technicolor tresses. Beyond the head-weeds, Hairs To You can also clear the skin with a half-hour "lunchtime peel" microdermabrasion ($100), color it with a full-body airbrush tan ($40), and adorn it with a makeup application ($25). Whatever combination of services you select, your mirror will be much more likely to offer praise and unsolicited massages when you get home.
On Ridge Avenue’s merchant strip in East Falls, Koco Nail Salon and Wax Studio infuses a bit of whimsy into the usual salon setup. Manicures are given clever names such as the Limoncello, which features a citrus scrub, and the Koco Truffle, with a chocolate scrub and a paraffin treatment. For the pedicure called the Arnold Palmer, geared toward athletes, the lucky recipient gets a green tea and lemon footbath and a brown-sugar scrub. There are numerous options to get your nails bedazzled – Swarovski crystals, anyone? – though less flashy treatments might include facials. This friendly spot, with its clean white space accented by greens and browns, even offers an array of waxing choices from eyebrows to Brazilians.
During the IPL laser treatment, aesthetician Jennifer Morgan beams noninvasive beams of broad-spectrum light onto skin with the aim of abducting age spots, skin redness, and brown pigments from their dermal farmhouses. This photorejuvenation may also stimulate the construction of skin-firming collagen and improve overall texture leading to skin as smooth as James Bond's pet jellyfish. Treatments require minimal downtime and typically eschew serious side effects, although customers interested in learning more about the process can schedule a complimentary consultation with Morgan.
