At Aria Skin and Laser Spa in Chapel Hill and Somalase in Sanford, Medical Director Dr. Ajay Ajmani oversees a team of tech-savvy aestheticians who beautify and protect the epidermis with facials, laser treatments, and massages. During microdermabrasions, a skilled technician employs a diamond tip to control the seven seas and exfoliate the upper strata of damaged skin, revealing a youthful acreage of epidermis. Laser treatments for pigmentation correction, hair removal, and skin tightening enlist powerful YAG lasers to beautify the epidermis. Facials reinvigorate visages with an eye treatment, custom mask, neck-and-hand massage, moisturizer, and a restraining order against the sun.

The shop also supplies all types of contact lenses, and newly eagle-eyed patrons strut out after Lasik treatments.
