Led by a board-certified plastic surgeon, Hudson Med Spas' aestheticians and medical professionals aim to restore bodies to a smooth, youthful, and healthy appearance. Four on-staff nurses perform beautifying procedures, which include laser treatments that can shrink fat cells, expunge unwanted hair, and tighten skin to give clients a youthful appearance smooth enough to get the kids' discount at a wind tunnel. In addition to medical treatments such as Botox and Radiesse, clients can opt for traditional spa services such as facials and soothing massages. Hudson Med Spas also schedules appointments after hours for an additional $20 fee, helping accommodate clients who need to work late stoking the sun's coal-burning core.

In the lobby of Spa 7, there is a large painting of a birdcage?but the cage is empty. Instead, the bird perches majestically at the cage's pointed top, poised as if for immediate flight. The image suits owner Stacey Rupe's philosophy well; she believes that the quest for outer beauty and emotional freedom starts when the body is liberated from the toxins and stress it keeps trapped inside. From colon hydrotherapy to massage, the Spa 7 team uses interior healing as a catalyst to create feelings of confidence and inner well-being that radiate outward. Stacey's staff of aestheticians then step forward to enhance the physical transformation externally with a slate of facials and other body treatments that renew skin with time-tested beautifying ingredients such as seaweed, essential oils, and Burt Reynolds's mustache hairs. Spa7's permanent makeup artist uses a steady hand to apply hypo-allergenic pigments to lashes, eyebrows, lips, and to the lining of the eye.
During a 36-year career in aesthetics, Diva Lashes' Patricia has developed an affinity for beauty techniques that require absolute precision. Patricia is board-certified in micro pigmentation, or the art of permanent makeup, and relies upon a digital tattoo machine to quickly and accurately render the texture of eyebrow hair or line an eye with minimal discomfort. Many styles of eyelash extensions similarly reflect her enjoyment of meticulous handwork, as each tendril must be adhered one-by-one in order for it to blend in with the natural lash line and hang on for up to three months without the encouragement of a kitten simultaneously dangling from the follicles. Over the past two decades, Patricia has honed her ability for evaluating her client's skin, and now creates custom refresher courses with SkinCeuticals products, vitamin C serums, and facial peels. She shares her decades of expertise and passion for beauty through the American Cancer Society's Look Good…Feel Better program, which connects oncology patients with aestheticians.
Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
