Licensed cosmetologist Tiffany has a different, and sometimes unexpected, remedy for each skin concern. For sun damage, she sheds LED light over skin to boost collagen production and fade unwanted pigment. She smoothes out fine lines and crow's-feet with anti-aging treatments that incorporate caviar, and shrinks eye puffiness with a combination of ultrasonic aromatherapy and massage. Tiffany even tightens loose skin with bio-lift treatments instead of tying clients' hair into really tight ponytails.

In addition to these specialized services, Tiffany's more general services include body waxing and an array of cleansing and hydrating facials, which often use FARAH Beauty Specialist products. Regardless of the end goal, all of her appointments begin with a consultation, during which she discusses desired results and advises clients on their at-home skincare regimens.

Clients can visit BlueInGreen for an EKG or vaccination, or even to treat a common cold. Dr. Poochikian, an internal-medicine specialist, oversees the health clinic, but he also puts his scientific knowledge to work with a slew of aesthetic services.

Dr. Poochikian's team of certified aestheticians operates an arsenal of advanced technology, including an Image Pro II, used for comprehensive skin analysis, and a laser system, used for everything from hair removal to spider-vein treatments. The crew also performs conventional facials and anti-aging treatments and crafts custom weight-management programs. BlueInGreen also combines its pursuits of heath and beauty via Yin yoga classes, which use slow poses to build body awareness and empathy for statues.

The staffers at Solar Planet do more than lavish visitors with meticulously clean salons, indulgent extras, and the power to don a sun-kissed glow in less than 20 minutes. Each employee is Smart Tan certified, meaning they possess the training to design personalized tanning schedules for clients seeking an instant or lasting glow. The specialists also know every detail of Solar Planet?s fleet of tanning beds, which range from traditional beds to standup capsules, the style most conducive to tanning lawn flamingos. At some locations, custom airbrush tanning sessions enlist the help of a certified airbrush artist who highlights the body?s features with strategic strokes in a custom bronzing hue. Over its 25 years in business, Solar Planet also has sunless tanning booths, a stock of buyable bronzing lotions, and a variety of skincare services including facials and waxing.

Precision is key at Lumina Skin Care Center. Not only does its aesthetic technology require laser accuracy to zero in on specific treatment areas, but its aestheticians also reference a 14-zone facial map to ensure their services are appropriately customized. Each licensed aesthetician relies on steady hands and a shrewd mind to use cutting-edge technologies such as LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense pulsed light) to clarify and restore youth to complexions. For more traditional facials, aestheticians use Obagi products with ingredients—antioxidants, hydroquinone, Retin-A, and tretinoin—that yield specific benefits.

Owner Magdalen Lagergren was born in Nairobi, where her Kenyan name is Karugi Karanja, which means "little cook.” This name turned out to be prophetic: as a child, Magdalen made her own facial creams and masks from local fruits and vegetables. As an adult in the United States, she fostered her passion for skincare with formal training at Yvonne de Vilar Scientific Skin Care in Vienna, Virginia, and after graduating in 2004, she earned her aesthetics license and immediately went to work at local spas.

Today, at her own practice, Magdalen takes point guiding a staff of two licensed aestheticians to soothe skin with specialized facials and perform microdermabrasion, waxing, and body services with Vivant skincare products. Four licensed massage therapists draw on a variety of techniques to ease specific aches and pains or combine them all in an attempt to create Voltron.
