As a licensed medical aesthetician and certified laser technician, Tammy Alexander feels right at home in every corner of her beauty spa. Her six facials include anti-aging glycolic peels and diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments, and she can even exfoliate skin on the back with steam and masks of french clay. Alexander expertly removes fuzz during her bikini and Brazilian waxes. She also offers cosmetic treatments that include eyelash extensions, organic airbrush tanning, and jane iredale–makeup applications.
The beauty experts at Allure Laser & Day Spa rely on state-of-the-art aesthetic technology to help their clients look their best. Armed with Candela’s GentleLASE Plus laser, they zap away unwanted fuzz, reducing the need for razors, wax, and tiny lawn mowers. Microdermabrasion treatments paired with ExcellaWave ultrasound energy revitalize tired complexions, whereas SkinMedica peels fight wrinkles and encourage cell renewal.
The staff at Enlighten Laser knows that beyond just being really cool, lasers are also highly effective for a number of health and beauty concerns, ranging from hair removal to weight loss. Employing FDA-approved devices and techniques, the clinic's practitioners treat spider veins, sun-damaged skin, and acne with the power of their lasers' focused beams. The infrared sauna on site offers a more hands-off, relaxed approach to detox and beautification, helping increase blood flow with dry heat and by making visitors feel like they're staring in a film about submarines.
The aestheticians at Healthcare 4 Her combine medical know-how with classic relaxation techniques in a tranquil spa environment, beautifying clients from head to toe using technologically enhanced and traditional spa treatments. Licensed laser technicians stop fuzzies in their tracks and prevent future hair growth with laser hair removal. Professional skin pamperers dole out five types of facials to exfoliate visages with microdermabrasion, clear complexions with fruit enzymes, and purge pores with menacing eviction notices. Massage therapists relax clients with four different massage styles, taking cues from venerated massage traditions and modern aromatherapy and kneading techniques to melt away muscle tension.
After rubbing elbows with talented experts, Krista Curry became the creative director of Textures Salon. Now she pours 20 years of experience into her team of stylists, who sculpt tresses with products by Redken and American Crew. Before beginning any of their services––which range from cuts and color to keratin treatments and bridal up-dos––they welcome men, women, and children into their orange, box-shaped styling chairs and warn them not to touch the shiny red eject button.
Alite Laser’s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures—waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis—fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it’s a case of the hiccups. When they aren’t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
