Atop a billowy treatment bed, clients relax as a professional aesthetician helps treat skin concerns through custom facials and peels. Deep cleansing removes dirt and oil and exfoliation relieves skin of dead cells that hide a more youthful surface.
During the laser hair-removal treatments, LuminaSkin's trained technicians blast follicle hedgehogs burrowing along hirsute human prairies with the LightSheer laser system. Each treatment package zaps hair across the body and requires two sessions; the women’s package deforests fuzzy quadrants from toes to upper lip and the men's package takes aim at stubborn upper torso tufts and escaped topiaries hiding on backs. The low-energy light beam blasts through the epidermis and down to the follicle’s root, helping to disrupt and diminish each strand’s growth cycle. The ChillTip of the LightSheer's wand works in tandem with numbing cream to help bone blankets stay cool, comfortable, and collected throughout the heating process. Depending on the hairs' density and ability to dodge lasers like gym-class kickballs, five to eight treatments maybe needed for optimal results.
At The Skin Care Studio, aesthetician Veronica draws from more than seven years of experience to make clients look and feel their best. She works to restore skin to a youthful, blemish-free state using professional products by companies such as Sonya Dakar?a brand for which she's a certified trainer. But Veronica doesn't rely on quality products alone to beautify clients; she also believes in the power of personal attention. She understands that everyone's skin is unique, which is why she customizes each of her fruit enzyme facials, sugar body scrubs, and lipomassage sessions after a thorough consultation and brief game of Never Have I Ever.
Given cellulite’s ability to survive any amount of jogging, weightlifting, or salad, it is no wonder people often consider drastic surgical steps to lose it. The staff at PerfectMe by Laser takes a more scientific approach, slimming and smoothing bodies with noninvasive, FDA-approved technologies. By combining cold laser light, infrared energy, ultrasonic beams, and radio frequency waves, the staff is able to get at clingy fat stores and cellulite dimples without ever breaking the skin. As a result, clients skip or moonwalk from the office without worry of recovery time or physical evidence such as bruising or T-shirts that say "I'm with laser."
Though lasers are the spa’s main gig, the dove-gray walls and splashes of pink and floral accents observe more than just cellulite melting into smooth, even textures. Clients also burnish smiles with the dental spa’s veneer fitting and teeth whitening, internalize deep inhalations of aromatherapy, or ease their mitts into warm paraffin therapy dips.
The medical spa's brigade of board-certified doctors meet individual beauty needs with a plethora of age-defying and beauty-building services. During laser treatments, licensed physicians de-fur men's and women's skin wardrobes by combining bipolar radio frequency and optical energy to damage the hair follicle and impede further growth. The safe and effective treatment reduces hair and leaves skin smooth for body surfing in rain puddles and going head-to-fin in competitive goldfish races.
Though she served as director of anesthesiology at the San Leandro Surgery Center, Dr. Gayle Misle helps the clients at Reviv Med Spa to look anything but sleepy. With a mission to help rejuvenate and improve bodies, Misle and her staff fight signs of weariness and aging with the latest aesthetic technologies, including injectables, chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Exilis, Sciton, and other aesthetic units utilize infrared and thermal energy to reshape stores of cellulite and tighten skin by jumpstarting its natural collagen-production process. Expert technicians also master several types of laser treatments that rid the body of unwanted hair and once-wanted tattoos.
