"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments. They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.
Owner, aesthetician, and skincare devotee Brandi Colton oversees Capricious' staff of beauty pros, whose areas of expertise run the gamut of skin pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, facials, and waxing. Bathed in light from a sparkling chandelier, customers rise from the lobby's zebra-print chairs as staffers lead them to private treatment rooms, where soft lighting and fresh flowers inject an air of tranquility into each facial, chemical peel, and massage. For the uninitiated, the free skin bar lets customers befriend their own skin therapist, who will perform a face analysis and dole out free samples of AcquaCures and Dermalogica products as heaps of steaming towels serve to open pores and perfectly cook clients made of broccoli.

Once inside RiaVida, you might wonder whether you've wandered into a spa or a luxury cabin. Cream-colored walls reflect natural lighting streaming in from windows, and greenery brings a touch of nature to the picture. A glass of complimentary tea or lemon-infused water may find its way into your hand. There's nothing about this space that isn't relaxing, and that's exactly how the staff hopes its clients feel when going into treatment rooms. With 10 in-house aestheticians, the group not only is adept at facials and body scrubs, but also has a range of specialties for men and women, including waxing. All facial treatments start with a personalized approach based on skin type and use organic products made in the US. Beyond skincare, clients can opt for eyelash extensions, body sculpting, and body wraps.
At Just Perfect Threading & Salon, many customers are left wondering how they hadn’t tried out threading earlier. After all, unlike waxing treatments, threading doesn’t cause the delicate skin around the eye to wrinkle. The skin-friendliness of threading is only one of the benefits of this ancient Eastern technique practiced here, where trained aestheticians loop and pull out rows of hair to skillfully shape eyebrows and swiftly remove unwanted hair from the face and body. Much like the world’s most accomplished marlin fishermen, the only tools these aestheticians use are a cotton string and a trained eye. They also accent newly smooth skin with henna tattoos, adding a fun, temporary design to hands, feet, or your skin area of choice.
Amid the advanced stylists of Tangles Salon, aesthetician Nikki Garland keeps clients' complexions beautiful and bright with custom skincare treatments. After a consultation to determine each client’s skin type and favorite Richard Gere film, Garland designs an appropriate regimen of cleansing, steaming, moisturizing, masking, and massaging to alleviate troubles ranging from dry skin to acne.
