Under the watchful eye of medical director Dr. Annika Crosby, the trained staff of PSS MedSpa come to the aid of clients with ailing complexions, aging skin, and unwanted hair or varicose veins with a combination of laser and aesthetic treatments. The team draws upon an arsenal of lasers that can be finely tuned to gently treat the delicate lines surrounding eyes or powerful rays that stop hair production in the follicles. The spa also utilizes high-quality products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Eminence, and Colorescience Pro, blending the latest skin science with all-natural ingredients to keep skin soft, complexions clear, and signs of aging at bay. The staff can also outfit newly refined faces with a selection of retail mineral makeup and waxing treatments that create skin as flawless as the skin skeletons dream about.
From rehabilitating muscles after an injury to giving a stressed client an hour of instant R & R, Neva Massage Center’s licensed massage therapists are led by certified therapists Leonid–trained in both Europe and America– and Iryna, a medical doctor in Russia. They tailor a range of modalities to every sort of need. Their classic long and smooth Swedish massage shoos away stress lingering between muscles, like a vacuum cleaner shoos away a dog that loves a good dirty carpet. They apply deep-tissue therapy’s concentrated pressure to injuries or points of chronic pain, whether in the head, neck, or back. Neva's therapists can also target muscle spasms, insomnia, edema, and depression with their meticulous kneads. They take relaxation a step further with hot stones, warm towels, and therapeutic scents, and they lengthen their clients’ “me time” with 90-minute extended massages.
Under the direction of Dr. Scott Jenkins, a board-certified plastic surgeon, the staff at Sedona Skin Spa tends to aesthetic needs with lasers, skincare, and dermal fillers. Each staff member is certified in laser treatments that help to remove unwanted hair, resurface complexions, or tighten the skin. The well-equipped aestheticians also can perform facials, microdermabrasion, and peels using products from SkinMedica and Image Skincare. Meanwhile, a certified nurse injection specialist can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows with FDA-approved injectables. The spa now offers Visia technology services- using this service, an aesthetician is able to offer a complexion analysis in less than a minute– providing insight into the different areas of health and appearance that can be affected by natural wear and tear.

The health-care professionals and paramedical aestheticians enlist Mensa–worthy technology and techniques as they reinvigorate the epidermis or invent entirely new looks. Before asking patients to commit to a particular treatment, the team invites prospective clients in for a complimentary 20-minute consultation to learn more about the procedure, the technology, and the history of the tongue depressor.

She assists in performing non-medical procedures like microdermabrasion and chemical treatments plus a selection of IPL laser treatments that help reduce unwanted hair and diminish the appearance of sun damage.
