At Girls & Guys Salon and Spa, a team of experienced hairdressers and technicians treat customers with a full suite of pampering beauty services. Treatments include haircuts, color services, facials, microdermabrasion, manicures, and laser hair removal.
Medical aesthetician Lang Lee stocks her treatment room at Lido Hair Salon & Spa with natural, chemical-free skincare products. During facials, she reaches for Oxygen Botanical products that steep complexions in antioxidants. Alternatively, during the Dr. Schrammek's energy green peel, she nourishes skin with a mixture of dried and crushed herbs that stimulate collagen production and leave the skin glowing brighter than the sun after it's had its batteries replaced.
Although Lang specializes in botanically based treatments, she supplements results with high-tech services, including LHE hair removal. This non-invasive treatment permanently reduces unwanted hair with light, heat, and energy.
Luminus Hair & Spa indulges heads with professional cuts from experienced stylists trained at Vidal Sassoon and Goldwell. After easing clients into sleek salon seats, soothing hands snip away frayed locks and shoo away roosting magpies during a women's cut (a $45–$60 value). The ensuing blow-dry styling gently airs out hair and leaves each head with a fashionable new ’do arranged to complement patrons' head shape and individual sense of style. Brightly painted walls adorn the interior of the recently relocated salon, whose adjoining deck provides ample opportunities for lounging, consuming refreshments, or challenging clouds to staring contests.
The Wild Strawberry Laser Clinic's skilled technicians target fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging on the face, neck, and chest during noninvasive Laser360 Fraxelated treatments for both men and women. After a consultation, a laser expert uses a trio of technologies attempt to render skin surfaces as youthful and ageless as Ponce de León's pet goldfish. During the one-hour treatment, intense light pulsates toward faces in an attempt to smooth out uneven skin tones and reduce broken blood vessels, and an Accent XL device gradually warms dermal and sub-dermal tissue to encourage the body's most outer layer to tighten. Finally, a precision laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations that can stimulate new collagen to grow and diminish fine lines and wrinkles as the treated area rejuvenates.
Services at The Neighbourhood Spa are anything but cookie-cutter. Instead, the med spa’s licensed aestheticians and laser technicians tailor treatment plans to every individual complexion they come across. They follow these plans with detailed skincare tips for each client’s particular lifestyle, daily stresses, and even eating patterns. Once they know how to treat a problem, the team members administer any one of their technologically advanced services. For instance, they might prescribe an intense-pulsed-light facial to alleviate broken capillaries or correct discoloration. Acne-riddled skin, meanwhile, may call for a hodgepodge of treatments, such as facials, chemical peels, and photorejuvenation. Below the neck, the staffers use radio frequency, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage to contour wobbly areas and smooth cellulite dimples. They also complement newly shaped physiques with two kinds of hair removal: permanent laser treatments or waxing for those who want the option to grow out their eyebrows at a later date.
