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.
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.
The highly trained staff at VIP Skin Spa customizes each and every one of their treatments to meet the specific aesthetic needs of their clients. Cleansers and serums are chosen carefully for unique benefits, such as anti-aging or anti-acne, and more advanced techniques are used to fight off laxity, brown spots, and cheetah spots. The aestheticians can administer microcurrent treatments on either the face or the body, use gentle electric pulses that promote toning and tightening. Clients are made to feel welcome from the moment they walk in the door and can enjoy a cucumber water or hot herbal tea from the refreshment bar.
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.
Renew Med Spa’s staff of trained aestheticians and massage therapists create a soothing atmosphere that helps nurture wellness both inside and out. Their menu of spa treatments runs the gamut from non-invasive body contouring that helps fight fat and shed planetary rings to Reiki massages that help alleviate chronic pain by targeting strategic pressure points. Other massage modalities include prenatal, hot-stone, and craniosacral massages. They also offer a free initial consultation to help determine the best treatment for clients. This helps the aestheticians carefully tailor facials to combat sun damage, age spots, and acne. With each facial, guests receive a complimentary massage and steam exfoliation.
Black-and-white portraits pop against walls of silver damask. An antique love seat sidles up to a zebra-printed chest. A chandelier's light glints against a table's gilded filigree. Although The Beauty Dive's historic-cottage setting radiates all things vintage, there is nothing dated about the pampering that occurs at the able hands of owner Yvette Reese and her staff. Yvette suffuses her studio with an atmosphere of creativity, encouraging her stylists and aestheticians to heed their own artistic inspiration as they forge modern hairstyles, eye-catching nails, and captivating cosmetic applications. To keep the image artisans up-to-date on the latest techniques, industry experts arrive every few months to lavish the staff with hands-on training and lessons in split-end psychology.
As stylists sculpt coifs to flatter individual faces, pedicure clients melt into oversize armchairs and bask in the skills of a master Shellac nail technician, who dips feet in fresh bowls of lavender-infused water before refining nails with sterile implements, unused files and buffers, and Opi and CND polishes. The beauty experts wield serums by Eminence Organics, Rusk, and Kevin Murphy, each of which are available for purchase to aid at-home primping. Between services, clients sip on wine, champagne, and martinis as they browse the boutique's collection of accessories and apparel from Johnny Was and 4 Love and Liberty, savoring a better union of sparkles and spirits than the wedding-ring speakeasies of the 1920 diamond prohibition.
