The staff at Atlanta Massage Retreat helps keep bodies and minds happy??and stress at bay??with a diverse menu of therapeutic bodywork techniques. Licensed massage therapists can relax muscles and surrounding fascia with flowing Swedish strokes or administer deep-tissue pressure to address aches. But massage and reflexology are only the start. Comprehensive medical notes are taken to record each client's condition and progress, and home-care exercises are provided to increase strength and mobility. Within a soothing massage boutique marked by french-blue walls and private treatment rooms with plush massage tables, the therapists also perform cranial-sacral therapy help with headaches and sinus pressure.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
The Vanity Center treats and beautifies skin with microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels. The center’s licensed aestheticians are also experts in the CelluSleek body-contouring system. A blend of deep-tissue massage, cupping, and subdermal therapy, CelluSleek is a noninvasive treatment that aims to reduce cellulite and help clients shed unwanted inches. Staffers also perform microcurrent facials, which harness the power of electricity to turbocharge skin elasticity, just as Benjamin Franklin originally intended.
The doctors at Tritt Aesthetic & Plastic Center—the beauty branch of Atlanta ENT's medical practice—help to enhance their patients' looks with an arsenal of skin treatments, hair-removal services, and cosmetic surgery. Noninvasive solutions such as microdermabrasion, facial fillers, and cellulite reduction work to minimize dermal imperfections such as wrinkles, redness, and reptilian scales, where as rhinoplasty imbues noses with aesthetic balance. Their waxing sessions leave skin smooth and bare for weeks on end, and laser hair removal yields even longer-lasting results.
Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
