Doctors at Kersey Family Care & Laser Center take a wide-angled view of health; in addition to offering primary-care services, they tackle a host of beauty concerns with a Cutera Coolglide laser.

The same laser can also help eliminate age spots, rosacea, and fine lines for more even-toned complexions.
Hugged by the soothing arms of the Smoky Mountain foothills, The Spa at Oak Haven offers a variety of deluxe spa services in a picturesque log-cabin environment. Fit for even the weariest lumberjacks and lumberjanes, the almost heaven massage ($75/60 minutes) eases tension and improves circulation according to your personal pressure preference. A deep cleansing facial ($85/60 minutes) reduces blemishes and unclogs pores, leaving your face silky and smooth as a baby seal. Rest atop a spa chair while treating your toes to the ice cream pedicure ($65), which features a flavored fizzing bath of oils, minerals, and fragrances. Sherbet exfoliants scrub out impurities while one of three foot masks—caramel, chocolate-hazelnut, or marshmallow—sweetens the deal. While your mouth chomps on a frozen treat of its own, the process finishes with a foot and leg massage with hydrating body icing and the application of toenail polish to match your new flannel shirt and bright-blue pet ox.
Though all of the aestheticians at Strandz Salon are veterans of the beauty business, their styling menu is cutting edge. This focus on both tried and true methods and the latest hair trends and technologies instills in them the ability to tackle any hair project, be it a simple cut with foil highlights or a complete revamp of hair’s texture with a smoothing keratin treatment or softly flowing perm. They use lauded products such as Moroccanoil hair masks and Keune’s Tinta hair-coloring system, which features ingredients that protect newly tinted strands from changing color when exposed to UV rays or embarrassing high-school photos.
Though its stylists have been voted some of the area’s best by the Daily Times Readers’ Choice awards, Strandz isn’t just a hair salon. Nail technicians are also available to file and freshen up nails with long-lasting gel polish, or guide clients to the private tanning rooms for lay-down or standup bronzing sessions.

The salon extends its service menu beyond nails to incorporate skin and massage treatments. Hot stones and the energy-balancing effects of reiki work to relieve stress.
