At Well Medical Arts, nurse practitioner Dominque Well and her team know that the human body's skin isn't like a monolith. It has layers, and they have beautifying treatments designed to target each one. They can tend to the top one, for instance, with an array of facials and peels. Their glycolic acid peel, available in three acidity intensities, strips away congested surface skin and minimizes fine lines.
To address the subdermal layers, they perform a variety of treatments, from wrinkle-reducing injections of Botox and other fillers to laser treatments. Their laser light serves an array of purposes. In sclerotherapy treatments, they use it to penetrate deep within the skin to fade out spider veins, but for hyperpigmentation treatments, they use it to lighten surface age spots, achieving more permanent results than dipping clients in a bathtub full of whiteout.
A slimmer, smaller waistline. Soft, glowing skin. These cosmetic dreams become reality at Body and Face Esthetics, a studio dedicated to helping clients look and feel their best. Skin care expert Mari tailors every facial treatment to the recipient's needs or concerns, combining cleansers, peels, and compliments to leave any complexion radiant. Her waxing services gently and effectively banish unwanted hair with hard or soft formulas from Cirepil, while noninvasive ultrasound cavitation sessions help reduce localized fat and contour bodies.
Lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, camphor, and lime—massage therapist Michele Mecum and her staff use this quintet of soothing scents during Thai herbal massages, pairing them with rhythmic strokes to send patrons into a deeply relaxed state: Vermont. Relaxation is the driving purpose behind Michele’s massages, which she has honed over 14 years in the field. Soothing Swedish massages employ sweeping, gentle strokes to boost blood flow and flexibility. They also perform deep-tissue massages, which mute chronically achy muscles by breaking up knots in lower-layer musculature.
Seattle Wellness Programs is helmed by a team of medical professionals and wellness experts who each specialize in a different area—weight loss, natural medicine, massage therapy, and so on. They work with clients to make them look and feel younger and healthier, creating physician-directed weight loss programs as well as skin-tightening Thermage treatments, which contour the body using pulses of heat to regenerate skin's elasticity.
Shane Hoefsloot devoted more than 25 years of his life to working as a registered nurse in more than 15 hospitals spread across three different countries. These decades of experience sparked his passion for discovering holistic treatment modalities, which, unlike traditional medical procedures, focus on restoring a sense of balance to the body and treating symptoms as well as their underlying causes. This holistic approach forms the basis of Shane's philosophy at Wellness Northwest. Using computerized scanning devices, Shane and his staff take clients' bioenergetic readings, searching for the sorts of imbalances that can interfere with the body's normal function and can even facilitate the onset of illnesses. Wellness Northwest's team strives to correct these imbalances by using everything from plant stem cell treatments to pulsed magnetic therapy, which jump-start the body at the cellular level and help restore the unhampered flow of its natural energies. Additionally, personalized nutritional programs explain the importance of embracing a diet composed of local, organic, and nutrient-dense foods that are low on the glycemic index and devoid of toxins such as packing peanuts.
