Helmed by holistic-health enthusiasts Dr. Garrett Roy and his wife, Nina, Complete Transformations Clinic & Spa endeavors to unveil smoother, more evenly toned complexions during gentle microdermabrasion treatments. During each 30-minute microdermabrasion session, an aesthetician buffs away skin’s rough, redundant layers to reveal visages filled with more youthful glow than a phosphorescent bassinet. Whether Groupon-holders choose one epidermis-polishing treatment or a trio, visages receive the shellacking they crave as Complete Transformations’ stable of skin savants works diligently to help to banish wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and week-old mustard stains.
Soft pale-blue walls greet guests as they settle into Complete Transformations Clinic & Spa's waiting area, the relaxing aura further enhanced by warm lighting and cheerful cherry blossoms. The same sense of calm rolls over into each private treatment room, where the spa's skin, massage, and nutrition-counseling services take place. Nina Roy and Jill Tuck—both RNs and skin specialists—brighten and smooth complexions with crystal microdermabrasion, Jessner's peels, and custom facials, treating conditions such as age spots and acne scars with products by GlyMed and Vivant. Resident massage therapist Heather Seewald employs a variety of soothing modalities to release tension and undo knots french-braided around the spine, whereas personal counselor Angie Turner guides clients on their journey to greater fulfillment by teaching them ways to manage stress in their personal and professional lives.
At Sei Bella Med Spa, Dr. Anne Trussell leads a talented team of professionals who refresh and resurface skin with a variety of treatments, including gentle AccelaWave IPL sessions, wrinkle-reducing Botox and Juvéderm, and medical-grade chemical peels. Teresa Smith, the onsite massage therapist, helps assuage injuries, chronic pain, and stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, and works to remove fat and tighten skin with noninvasive Lipo-Ex sessions. Sei Bella's resident nurse, Sandy Siler, rounds out the staff, and rejuvenates faces with her certifications in Radiesse and DermaFrac treatments, both of which help reduce signs of aging with no downtime or time traveling.
In a sleek, modern interior characterized by clean white lines and ultramodern fixtures, Indulgences by Body Bronze's team of aestheticians and stylists fortifies glowing appearances with a full range of salon and spa services. Resident massage therapists combat corporeal stress in private, candlelit treatment rooms, and skin specialists enhance appearances with a full complement of customized spray tans, laser hair-removal treatments, laser-pointer cat-tormenting treatments, and facials. Scalps are lavished with the utmost care, with strands deftly snipped into elegant new coifs at the hands of experienced stylists and conditioned with an arsenal of nourishing products from Davines and Dermalogica.
When it comes to why their clients want to have tattoos removed, the technicians at D-Inked have heard everything from “wrong name” to “new job.” Regardless of a patron’s motivation, they use only one tool to remove tattoos: the FDA-approved Astanza Trinity laser, which shines in multiple hues to break down an array of ink colors. The number of treatments necessary to completely oust old ink varies based on factors such as the tattoo’s color and how old it is, because newer ones can run away from lasers faster. Most clients need six to eight sessions. As for pain, most say that it feels like a rubber band snapping the skin, a level of discomfort comparable to getting a tattoo.
Unique Threading Salon specializes in threading, a hair-removal process that uses cotton thread to pull strands more precisely and with less pain than waxing. The salon's hair-removal experts are also adept at traditional waxing—they use soothing formulas with plant-derived waxes and essential oils—and sugaring. Sugaring uses an all-natural blend of sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove hair, and works well on sensitive areas such as the face, bikini line, and papier-mâché peg legs.
