Nestled amid the black-curtained confines of Modern Elegance Salon and Spa, stylists and aestheticians forge stray locks into silky new hairdos and battle the signs of aging with wrinkle-reducing facials. Above heads, silver chandeliers drip with sparkling prisms, which send light bouncing off walls as staffers offer a menu of services that includes massage and waxing treatments.
Kneading away anxiety and tension with mobile and onsite massages since 1992, the licensed practitioners at Amazing Massage Services combine multitudinous modalities to personalize each treatment. The kneading and soothing strokes of the Swedish technique treat bodies to blissful relaxation, while the deep-tissue massage focuses on points of chronic stress and checking if patrons have mistakenly swallowed their car keys. Pure essential oils complement each session and single note scents such as eucalyptus stimulate the respiratory system with distinct perfumes while unwinding overworked fascia. Once therapists untie complex knotting, hot towels allow patrons to enjoy soothing warmth without huddling up to an overheated engine block.

?Some are born with silver spoon in hand," Jolena says on Bella by Jolena?s website. ?I came into this world holding a cosmetic brush.? What she means is that even as a child, she loved applying her mother?s makeup and face creams to her dolls. Unsurprisingly, as an adult, she gave up her corporate job to strike out on her own in the field of beauty.
Today, Jolena specializes in creating memorable bridal, pinup, vintage, and theatrical looks, using make-up and hair artistry. She also preps her makeup canvases by performing facial treatments ranging from LED light therapy to Bioelements facials, and semipermanent lash extensions, which make eyes engaging even if they can't do that hypnotic swirling thing.
Bella by Jolena's full suite of services includes Crushed Diamond Microdermabrasions, precision eyebrow shaping, wardrobe styling, and full services for bridal shower and bridal spa parties.
Vancouver Laser's beams of light help clients travel back in time, emerging from the clinic with a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Owner Lori Keller, a medical aesthetician and certified laser technician, oversees a professional, certified staff who make these transformations possible. Their steadfast hands wield Cutera Medical lasers to target acne scars, face and leg veins, rosacea, and fine lines. The practitioners also administer other cosmetic treatments, such as Botox injections, diamond microdermabrasion, and free makeup consultations.
As a teenage survivor of Hodgkin's lymphoma, owner and licensed aesthetician Amber Henson believes that a healthy skincare regime is just as important as a healthy diet and exercise. To that end, she provides complimentary makeup lessons to any clients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation and addresses her customers' skin concerns with organic and clinical treatments. Her facials can alleviate the signs of aging and acne, and her peels with organic fruit and microscopic subscription cards increase cell renewal. Amber’s care for skin starts from the follicle up, as she also offers waxing services for men and women.
