Most days upon leaving class at the International School of Skin and Nailcare, Kristen Axton headed straight to her job at Kiehl's. This combination of formal training and on-the-job experience helped develop her aesthetic expertise, which she further refined while working at several med spas throughout Atlanta. Today, as owner of Kristen's Skin Care & Massage, she commands a team of massage therapists and aestheticians dedicated to beautifying and de-stressing clients. Their signature Atlanta facial restores vim and vigor to lagging faces with a multi-step regimen that includes peels derived from herbal enzymes or therapeutic acids. Aestheticians also slough away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion sessions designed to lessen scarring from acne, sun damage, and general wear and tear. Elsewhere in the shop, massage therapists unravel kinked muscles with techniques borrowed from Swedish and neuromuscular specialties.
Before their stress-relieving treatments even begin, patrons at Spa Sydell sink into deep relaxation. Each of its six locations boasts trickling waterfalls, pleasant aromas wafting through the air, and beautiful tropical plants illuminated by soft lights. Inside the tranquil treatment rooms, the spa?s licensed estheticians and massage therapists?all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques?further relax clients with a variety of services that rejuvenate the mind, body, and skin.
For over three decades Spa Sydell has been a landmark?one of Georgia's most recognized day spas, emphasizing a continuing commitment to deliver personalized attention and superior service to each customer.
A testament to the life, love, people, and beaches of Brazil, Spa Buzios? technicians emphasize the country's spirit in beautification treatments designed to keep patrons beach-ready, no matter the weather. Pastel colors of pink and green frame the windows, doors, and treatment rooms of the spa as patrons take a break from everyday life to relax amid fresh flowers and wicker waiting-room furniture. Premium hard waxes remove unwanted hair from nether regions, and the spa's licensed aestheticians maintain clean, sanitary conditions without double-dipping or reusing wax. Meanwhile, Norvell airbrush tans coat skin in a variety of individual shades that are hand-applied in even coats.
Skincare has come a long way from homemade facial treatments that involved medieval-sounding anti-pimple procedures. Atlanta Eye Candy staffers embrace the ever-evolving trends in skincare and eyelash extensions to give their clients the most current treatments and natural-looking enhancements. Within, highly trained medical aestheticians and certified laser technicians perform a sweeping array of procedures, such as age-defying microdermabrasions. Licensed makeup artists decorate lids and lips with temporary or permanent makeup, and the staff's certified master lash stylist enhances the power of both winks and eye rolls with Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions.
Renata Nall's 19-year journey through the world of aesthetics saw her working alongside plastic surgeons and dermatologists before she split off 4 years ago to open her own Anti-Aging Skin Studio. Since then, Renata has honed a repertoire of treatments to remedy the internal and external effects of aging. Her techniques smooth the skin, extract bodily toxins, and melt down AARP cards into youthful friendship bracelets. Reflective of Renata's medical background, products from PCA Skin dab epidermises with elixirs created under the guidance of physicians.
