At Amazing Grace Productions, owner and licensed aesthetician Amber Preston brings her training from Aveda Institute Columbus to help clients achieve their most striking iterations through a full menu of salon services. Amber likes to keep things personal, devoting full attention to each person who walks through the door or rappels through the skylight. Before administering each custom facial, she thoroughly analyzes clients’ skin and whips up a tailored blend of ingredients sensitive to their issues. Amber’s flexible hours cater to devout nine-to-fivers by keeping flexible hours most weekdays—staying open until 11:45 p.m. Thursday and Friday—and always opening her doors on weekends.

Or opt for nail services and enjoy expertly manicured finger lawns and toe topiaries ($40+ for a spa manicure and pedicure) (services and prices may vary by location).

With an eye for aesthetics in all its forms, Dr. Mark Goldsmith, the head of Ageless Splendor, showcases the work of local artists in his med spa’s gallery. Surrounded by framed paintings, prints, or professional macaroni art, patients partake in treatments that enhance their physical beauty. These include rejuvenating laser skin treatments and laser hair removal or noninvasive body contouring and tattoo removal. Chemical peels exfoliate skin to reveal more youthful complexions and permanent-makeup applications enhance features with indelible pigments.
Drawing upon the experience she’s gained in her more than two decades as a cosmetology instructor, Roya artfully enhances lips, lids, and brows with permanent cosmetics. After an initial consultation to select color and design, Roya uses a hygienic needling procedure to deliver indelible ink into the dermal layer of the skin. With proper care, including using sunscreen and not swimming in lakes filled with bleach, permanent makeup can stay vibrant for years.
At Love Aesthetics Studio, there's a skincare treatment for everyone. The aestheticians take far more into consideration than just skin type when customizing their results-driven clinical skincare services. They also consider each client's lifestyle and daily habits to help create maximum, long-lasting results. Personalized programs work to repair damage at a cellular level, slowing down the aging process and reducing inflammation. Treatments range from basic facials to collagen-induction therapy, and the staff also beautifies clients with permanent cosmetics, spray tans, and eyelash extensions.
