Lasting Lines started as most great businesses start: with eyebrows. Now 35 years have passed, and Renee Ryan’s permanent-makeup business has blossomed into a successful aesthetic school and clinic. Renee and her highly trained staff can outfit clients with new brows, or use their modern electrolysis equipment to remove hair, skin tags, moles, and spider veins. Clients may also solicit Lasting Lines for sleek eyelash extensions, or retreat to a private room for a soothing deep-tissue massage from registered massage therapist Charles Linville.
The staff at My Spa & Boutique aim to beautify guests in a relaxing atmosphere. Massage therapists incorporate fragrant aromatherapy into candlelit couples massages and technicians combat signs of aging during facials with ?minence Organic Skin Care products. The team's tool of choice for tightening lax skin or removing hair is the Soprano XL laser, whose skin-cooling tip and gradually heating IN-Motion technology minimize client discomfort. The device can disable follicles on any skin type, be it pale, tanned, or made of plaster.
In the salon area, experienced stylists craft custom cuts and colors and perform specialty services such as feather extensions. Tiled floors, arched doorways, and soft lighting from ornate sconces give the space an ambiance reminiscent of a Spanish hacienda.
Lorean Wilson Dillard, Beauty Mark Boutique's certified aesthetician, doesn't hold regular office hours. Instead, she schedules all of her services by appointment, accommodating clients who have hectic schedules or only own half of a clock. During these convenient sessions, the aesthetician can use microdermabrasion to prompt collagen production, chemical peels to clear men's complexions, or facials to fight both teenage and adult acne. Beauty Mark Boutique's standout service, however, is its back-cial treatment, during which an aesthetician cleanses the back, massages sore muscles, and applies special products to the skin as music, soft candlelight, and aromatic essential oils cultivate a relaxing ambiance.
After practicing for 600 hours to earn her massage therapist's license, Monique Zamora wasted no time in starting her own massage business, Virt? Spa. She specializes in five distinct modalities, but might incorporate any or all of them into a single treatment, depending on a client's needs. She can relieve simple tension with the long, gentle surface strokes of Swedish massage, or delve deeper into the tissues to target trigger points?hyper-irritable spots associated with knots, taut bands of muscle fibers, and accidentally swallowed water pistols.

Lotus Facials focuses its spa offerings on treatments that not only improve the body's exterior, but also make clients feel better from the inside out. Each of the available facials kicks off with a consultation and skin analysis. This allows skincare experts to select the types of products, techniques, and magical incantations that will work best for each individual. In addition to facials—each of which can be paired with microdermabrasion or a peel—Lotus's clients can also opt for waxing services or a relaxing massage. Lotus Facials operates out of The Massage Place and Wellness Center.
