Allure Laser Center's attentive staff offers noninvasive, long-lasting hair-removal services designed to subdue unwanted stubble. During each session, a technician thins the treatment area's fuzz with a follicle-destroying light pulse, politely barring future hair intruders from the epidermis. Though the treatment may temporarily redden skin, the laser's cooling tip soothes body surfaces and minimizes irritation, much like covering a new tattoo with refreshing Altoid crumbles.
Licensed massage therapists Bonnie and Jessica tailor massages to their clients? needs, using a combination of Swedish, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular techniques. Relying on 13 years of experience, they work side by side during couples massages and offer prenatal massages for expectant mothers?and their very supportive husbands. The spa?s licensed aesthetician, Jennifer of Skin Solutions, uses Dermalogica products during facials that calm irritated skin and clear dirt from pores to promote a healthy glow and refine the surface of the face.
It takes a lot of time and an admirable level of dedication to undergo training for skincare therapy in Germany and New York and paramedical cosmetic consulting in California, and then become a licensed cosmetologist in Georgia and Michigan as well as a board-certified surgical technologist. Master cosmetologist and medical aesthetician Brenda McMillin has put in that time and displayed that dedication, and along with her 20 years of experience, it all goes into pampering her clients’ skin at Leni Skincare and Cosmetics. McMillin renders treatments such as HydraFacial MDs and seaweed-gel body masks to leave skin radiant and paraffin-infusion therapy to make hands and feet as soft as a bunny or a log that’s been sitting in water since Aristotle put it there. It’s this kind of pampering that has gotten her work featured on the TV shows The Doctors and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Along with skillfully performing these skincare services, McMillin purveys Nutrilite nutritional supplements and jewelry.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
We focus on "healthy inside and outside" since we are a MEDICAL spa not just a Fru Fru kind of place. We don't do nails and we don't sale cosmetics. We help our clients build a foundation for healthy, fresh, long-term beautiful skin. Even the most unattractive person looks better and feels more confident when they can put their best face forward. Our society judges us in the first three minutes we are visible to another human. Great skin says I am conscientious about my appearance and my health.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
The results we see and the ability to help people build self-confidence.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Thinking you can "paint on a bad canvas". You cannot put even great cosmetics (make-up) on skin that is rough, uneven, dry, oily or just not healthy. The radiance created by great skin shines through even the cheapest make-up.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our Rejuvenating Facial is customized to meet the needs of each individual client. We analyze your skin for texture, pigment and other issues that could be health related. THEN we advise our clients what can be done to correct the issue and to maintain great skin on a long term basis. "Going to a MEDICAL spa is like going to the GYM: if you only go once the benefits are limited, but if you go regularly the results are lifelong".
The private rooms at Tan-Tastic Tanning yield many paths to acquiring richer pigmentation. Among the most popular of these are bronze-, silver-, and platinum-level tanning beds that imbue skin with varying degrees of UV light to ensure a smooth and even tone. Bronze beds illume bodies and faces with separate tanners, silver beds cradle client in an ergonomic acrylic base that includes a ventilation system and mp3 plug-in, and platinum beds boast high-pressure bulbs and shoulder tanners. Just off to the side of its more traditional siblings, a VersaSpa spray-tan booth burnishes skin with a UV-free mist until it achieves the rich, bronze hue of a deep-fried garden sculpture. At the salon’s front desk, lotions and elixirs from Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold mingle with blends from Devoted Creations, such as a skin-firming aromatherapy formula with anticellulite agents and white-birch extract.
Board-certified internist Dr. Steve Fabrizio, MD, oversees the staff at Premier Medical Weight Loss and Aesthetics. His efforts to tackle obesity throughout the past decade have given him expertise in dieting, exercise, and medications, which supplements the aesthetic treatments at his medspa. On the spa side, Botox injections work to erase the lines and creases that appear after years of folding your face up into your wallet, and lasers zap away unwanted hair and spider veins.
