Medical procedures and spa treatments share a home at Allure Skin and Laser Clinic, where medical aestheticians reinvigorate skin with facial peels, laser hair removal, permanent makeup, and other treatments that blur the line between the laboratory and the day spa. Though their specialties vary, the staff members share a common philosophy: treat each guest as an individual who deserves to be pampered.
This philosophy pervades every aspect of the spa, from the smile and steamy cup of herbal tea that await guests upon their arrival to the treatments themselves—each of which begins with a personal consultation and a customized skin analysis. The aestheticians often call upon advanced implements such as a special skin scanner to determine which treatments to deploy. Their considerable skills also allow the team to camouflage scars, whiten teeth, and obliterate rebellious planets with their laser devices.
Beauty-Full Spa is a catchall for spa, med spa, and wellness services. The staff schedules everything from facials and massages to diamond peel microdermabrasions and laser tattoo-removal treatments. But the staff pays attention to more than just appearances. They also offer weight loss programs, cleanses, and detoxifying infrared sauna sessions, which simulate the conditions of the rain forests on Venus.
