For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
Tending to bodies for more than 30 years, The Skin Center Medical Spa enhances innate beauty through noninvasive laser treatments, anti-aging skin therapies, and cosmetic enhancements. Conceived by Dr. Dominic Brandy, the current medical director at three Pittsburgh locations, and overseen by the Columbus location's medical director, Dr. Fernando Colon, the minimally invasive QuickLift mini face-lift helps tighten the lower face, neck, and jawline with a dramatically shortened recovery time. The Skin Center's experts revitalize all components of the face, targeting veins, hair, or Mona Lisa–shaped birthmarks through surgical solutions and high-tech injections. Vascular surgeons Dr. Marios Panayides and Dr. Jason Tomsic specialize in minimally invasive surgeries such as such as endovenous laser ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy to serve skin below the head.
Returning back east after working under Robert Cromeans—the global artistic director of Paul Mitchell—in his California salon and traveling hair shows, Sergio Pampena succeeded his father as the owner and driving force behind Sergio’s Style. Sergio works closely with the junior- and senior-level stylists who call his Paul Mitchell Focus Salon home, including three who spend their spare time as national educators for Paul Mitchell. His stylists begin cuts and colorings by ushering clients to the wash house, an alcove situated behind a towering wall of falling water where muscles relish a head and neck massage as soft music trills from speakers and well-hidden carousels. While stylists work, clients can watch their hair color getting mixed at the floor’s color bar or affix eyes on a wall-mounted flat-screen television. Though Sergio’s stylists are chiefly concerned with haircare, a menu of waxing, spray-tanning, and makeup services are available to complement fresh cuts.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
At Rejuvenate Medical Spa, Karen A. Roperti, MD and Paul DiMaio, PA-C harness their combined years of experience in the health field to invigorate clients' skin with the latest anti-aging procedures and spa services. Wielding high-tech lasers, the clinical staff zaps unwanted hairs, veins, sun spots, or miniature planets orbiting the head, and handpicked products from Latisse and SkinCeuticals further smoothen skinscapes. Consultations before any appointment are free of charge, instilling peace of mind in guests readying for their first facial procedure or permanent-makeup session.
The creative team of Erin Lane Mattes and Carley Hapke harnesses their combined 16 years in the beauty industry to pamper clients inside a light-strewn Allison Park studio.
