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.
Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to six locations. Today, the spa?s experts form a team of experienced cosmetic surgeons and licensed skincare professionals, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
Dr. Donald Ruf is the core of Slender SpaMed, which specializes in cosmetic and weight-loss procedures. They employ the latest technology, including a Syneron laser hair-removal system and the Arasys Perfector, designed to trim waistlines without exercise or ice-cube diets.
Slender SpaMed's aestheticians perform traditional spa treatments, including hydrating facials, therapeutic massages, and slimming body wraps. Custom weight-loss programs supplement nutritional counseling and personal-training sessions with procedures such as vitamin injections.
The ambiance at The Body Wax strikes a sultry chord with a black leather couch in the waiting area and deep-orange walls throughout the hallways. The vibe allows clients to feel safe and comfortable within the private treatment studios, each of which features a cushioned, adjustable bed. Warm wax lifts unwanted hair while weakening the bulbs, leaving skin smooth for two–three weeks and causing future growth to be finer and thereby easier to remove. As a hair-removal method, waxing lasts longer than shaving, doesn't cause the painful rashes of depilatory lotions, and sidesteps the unbearable hair stench of fire.

To keep abreast of the latest trends in European styling and croissant making, she also frequently attends seminars led by industry leaders, melding modern techniques with her own creative flair to create looks that are completely fresh.
In 2003, beauty expert Reema Khan noticed just how many patrons of her Chicago salon sought expert brow-shaping services.

In addition to brow services, clients can opt for makeup applications, facial treatments, and body waxing services.
