For more than a dozen years, Skinlogic Med Spa has been working on the skin of Seattle residents, both those who seek out the sun and those who don’t. A full-service treatment facility open seven days a week, Skinlogic provides a range of skin solutions that include Botox, laser hair removal, facials and chemical peels, all enhanced by a philosophy of concern for general skin health. Central to that concern is a knowledgeable staff, each member of which works with clients to come up with a personal treatment plan. In a chic, tranquil setting near beautiful Green Lake, complete with funky accents and colorful rugs, Skinlogic stands out as a leader in skincare solutions for Seattle, along with other services like waxing and massages.
Trieva Katsandres was driven to start her own spa, and she did so in a single room in Mill Creek. It was so successful, she and her colleague Maysaa were able to expand to a commercial space that allowed them to hire other technicians and offer new services. By 2013, she'd claimed back-to-back titles as Best Day Spa from KING5.
Today, Trieva's Spa & Boutique welcomes clients to two locations, both offering a staggeringly extensive selection of aesthetic services performed by more than 30 employees. In the spa, massage therapists ply muscles with everything from hot-stone to Hawaiian lomi lomi massages, and aestheticians cleanse the face and body with custom facials and body scrubs. There's a hair and nail salon, as well as a menu of extras that includes makeup applications, lash extensions, and teeth whitening.
As a licensed aesthetician with an advanced aesthetic education, Carey Thompson helps her clients realize smoother skin using facials and hair-removal services. Within her private, tranquil beauty studio, Carey can cleanse complexions, unclog pores, and buff away the signs of aging with microdermabrasion treatments. To get rid of unwanted hair, she performs waxing treatments as well as electrolysis, a more permanent method of hair removal that uses tiny jolts of electricity to kill follicles and communicate with pet eels.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
Before she became an esthetician, Kristine served as a model. Noticing the value of radiant skin, she took an interest in the field of aesthetics and enrolled at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics. Her studies cemented her passion for skincare, and deepened her knowledge of curative botanical ingredients. Whether coating faces in pumpkin-based enzymes or jack-o-lantern guts, Kristine improves skin the natural way—without the help of artificial compounds or harsh preservatives. To this end, she's allegiant to the Rhonda Allison product line, which largely consists of food- and plant-derived cleansers, lotions, and masks. Kristine integrates these products into various treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and waxes.
Ageless Center for Rejuvenation bills itself as Seattle’s premiere center for relaxing and revitalizing the body. Based in the city’s Fremont neighborhood, the Center offers a variety of spa services, with traditional treatments that include facial and overall skin care, while the Medical Day Spa offers every medical enhancement available.

The Center’s true emphasis may be on customers’ emotional and spiritual well-being, however, with its serene and calming environment, overseen by knowledgeable and patient staff. Doctor Barbara J. Schell, the Center’s director, is board-certified both by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Dermatology.
