The staff of Aesthetic Specialists at LAesthetic wield a variety of cutting-edge machines to subtly enhance appearances. They rely on everything from a Trios or Palomar laser to remove unwanted body hair to a Viora Reaction radio-frequency system to tighten skin to a BriteWhite device to brighten smiles.
The beauty experts also smooth and brighten complexions with oxygen facials and medical microdermabrasion treatments, as well as tone skin with facial peels. These employ such enzyme-rich ingredients as pumpkins, yams, and vitamin C. One of their most indulgent treatments is the 24k gold facial mask that firms skin and helps clients feel richer than James Earl Jones's voice after he gargles with maple syrup.
Mantra Medi Spa’s licensed aestheticians welcome their clients into more than 14 years of skin-fixing experience. Their services range from microdermabrasion treatments that uproot trapped dirt and confetti to laser hair-removal sessions.
Direct Connection Chiropractic owner Penny Richardson began her career after her son Miles's health was saved by chiropractic care. At a year old, he began suffering from ear and sinus infections, asthma, and allergies. After rounds of ineffective antibiotics and allergy shots, a friend of Penny's recommended chiropractic therapy. Within three months, Miles was off all medication and breathing treatments, and he’s remained healthy for more than 20 years. Her son’s transformation inspired Penny to get her chiropractor’s license and work to give her patients a chance for a new beginning with nonsurgical and noninvasive chiropractic treatments. With meticulous adjustments, the doctor helps align spines in adults and children, getting to the root of pain and discomfort. In addition to her chiropractic exams and adjustments, Dr. Penny also offers weight-loss and facial services to help achieve shapely curves and toned, glowing complexions.

As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.
