Equal parts med-spa and salon, Janet + Janes Medspa + Hair Studio is buoyed by the talents of a staff that performs photo-facials, manicures, and nearly everything in between. Though they work in a monochromatic space dominated by blacks and greys, the salon’s hairstylists specialize in adding vibrant color to enhance their cuts and up-dos. Nearby but tucked away in private rooms, certified specialists renew physiques with Botox, laser hair-removal treatments, and full reboots of the body’s robotic systems.
At Enlighten Laser and Skin Care Clinic, Aimee Avery beautifies skin and slims bodies with an array of FDA-approved techniques including laser hair removal, photofacials, and fat-reduction treatments. Visits commence with a complimentary consultation. Amid the clinic's calming, grey surfaces, aestheticians discuss treatment options and match clients up with restorative cosmetics. Custom shades of Jane Iredale mineral makeup are designed to reduce redness and improve skin health using all-natural minerals scraped from the rosy cheeks of the Sphinx.:m]]
Westside Laser & Light’s team of medical practitioners, registered nurses, and licensed technicians work closely with each patient to create a custom treatment program specific to his or her needs. Since the med spa is equipped to provide a range of nonsurgical skincare procedures, treatment plans can deliver full-body result by spanning multiple services including laser skin resurfacing, cosmetic injectables, and ultrasound body contouring. Reminiscent of a peaceful, wooded retreat frequented by singing chipmunks, the lobby and treatment rooms put patients at ease with dark-wood cabinets, forest motifs, and lime-green accents.
Nubare Laser & Skincare proprietor Michelle Ford is well versed in the world of beauty. The former international model and current skincare specialist unfurls her expertise inside the bright and modern spa, enhancing patrons’ exteriors with noninvasive procedures such as facials and microdermabrasion treatments. Additionally, certified laser technicians employ an advanced LightSheer Diode laser system to evict stubble from bodily surfaces and use the Isolaz Acne Light Treatment to diminish acne. The staff also offers relaxing spa services, which include manicures and pedicures.
Hair Free Laser Institute technicians wield IPL lasers to remove hair and signs of facial hyperpigmentation, as well as blemishes caused by sun damage, acne, or sleeping on pine cones. Treatments are customized according to the Fitzpatrick skin-type system, which clients can check out online before scheduling an appointment. Though these therapies are described as relatively pain-free, technicians may give clients ice packs after appointments to counteract any natural side effects they may experiences such as tingling and redness.
Tanning beds are strictly outlawed within Sundrops. Instead, owner Laura Downing hires experienced technicians who expertly spritz skin with safe, high-quality tanning solution that results in a streak-free, natural glow, rather than orangey skin. After clients undress to their comfort level, the techs use a high-volume, low-pressure spray gun to mist skin, using extra caution around hands, feet, elbows, and knees to avoid over-darkening those areas.
Their tanning solution contains botanical extract, vitamin E, and green-tea extract, but the bronze comes from two sources. First, a cosmetic bronzer with natural pigment imparts immediate colour to help the technician see where the tan is landing and give skin an instant glow, which washes off after showering. The solution's active ingredient is DHA, which is derived from sugar beets and reacts with skin's top layer. The DHA tan begins to appear about four hours after appointments and fully develops for up to 12 hours, and lasts for 5–10 days, depending on which type of tan technicians apply. The spray tan itself takes about three minutes, and clients can easily get in and out within 15 minutes to resume comedic chase scenes without losing much ground.
