Before co-founding her own medical aesthetics practice, Dr. Marcia V. Byrd studied the intricacies of cosmetic surgery under the direction of internationally respected surgeons such as Dr. Giorgio Fischer, the pioneer of modern liposuction. This venerable training combined with a 20-year career lends the clients of Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center peace of mind during any of the center's transformative aesthetic procedures. Byrd's signature Soft Beautification Peel helps to return complexions to their natural, youthful state by dispersing wrinkles, shallow scarring, and freckles, whether they are natural or the result of an extended nap on a book of braille. Injectible beauty enhancers such as Botox or Juvéderm iron out creases and fine lines, and body-sculpting procedures and laser treatments help to tailor and tone overall appearances.
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.

With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Solar Eclipse Tanning Salon doesn’t hide its bold intentions in the shadows. The salon’s staff members envision “putting the sun out of business,” a hyperbolic mission that they accomplish, in part, with four types of UV-tanning beds. Unlike the sun, all of these beds are regularly sanitized and outfitted with fresh bulbs to ensure a glowing base tan or a dark bronze coat.
Not content to merely mimic the sun’s rays, the salon takes a different route entirely with a Mystic Tan booth that spritzes the body with a UV-free bronzing formula. This formula comes in two shades, each of which lasts for up to seven days with proper care. In a red-light-therapy bed—also free of UV rays—therapeutic light repairs skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and render tattooed treasure maps more legible.
Though her pampering skills once enriched the lives of students at Redken School in New York, these days, master cosmetologist Pat Alessi uses her more than 30 years of experience to upgrade looks at Salon 1580. Along with specialty services in creative coloring, Global Keratin treatments, and rejuvenating organic facials, Pat counts communication as one of her greatest styling assets, taking the time to carefully listen to each of her client's wants and concerns before expertly shaping locks with Redken, L'Oréal, and Rusk products. 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.
