Licensed paramedical aesthetician Stephanie Humphries has stayed abreast of technological advances throughout her career, which spans more than a decade. At Total Body Aesthetics, which is celebrating its five-year anniversary, she equips clients with HCG diets, Synergy AMS treatments, and Formostar body wraps to help them stay fit and trim. To assist with skincare, she buffs and purifies faces with Clarisonic brushes, which pulse at 300 movements per minute, as fast as a Ferrari’s standing heart rate.
Humphries balances the clinical feel of high-tech gadgets with the welcoming feel of earthy decor. Private treatment rooms brim with natural light filtering through thatched blinds. Plants add an organic touch, as do thick, sand-colored linens.
