Helmed by owner Shannon A. Wolfgang, the staff of injection specialists at A Hair Never There smoothes skin, removes unwanted follicles, and banishes cellulite with FDA-approved techniques and services. Botox injections remove facial folds and wrinkles for months at a time, and VelaShape treatments can undo cellulite without invasive surgery or dangerous, human-size panini presses. The med spa's technicians draw from extensive certification and medical experience as they beautify both men and women, reducing future hair growth with lasers and electrolysis and helping restore youthful glows to skin with light therapy and chemical peels.
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.

Essence Laser & Wellness Essence Laser & Wellness’s Dr. Melinda C. O'Rourke and a diverse staff deliver a comprehensive repertoire of services, incorporating techniques as disparate as laser technology and acupuncture to enhance clients’ health and appearance. Aestheticians take a comprehensive approach to caring for skin by giving visitors analyses and consultations before each facial or chemical peel featuring SkinCeuticals skincare products. Skilled laser techs remake skin’s topography by passing heated light rays over sun spots, sagging skin, and portraits of Gary Busey graffitied across the body. Staffers also dole out a variety of elixirs clients can use to achieve youthful good looks from home, including Latisse, glominerals, and colorescience products.
Certified laser specialist Pamela Archer is a staunch believer in the manifold power of lasers, employing their beams to rid bodies of hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and fungus at BARELaser clinic. Her arsenal of Quanta lasers covers a wide range of wavelengths to address the needs of patients of all skin types and ham-radio-station preferences. The center's team of registered nurses conquers issues unreachable by lasers through skin-smoothing injections of Botox or dermal fillers.
More than 25 years ago, licensed massage therapist and single mom Peggy Irvin was facing the challenges of raising two children on her own. Despite her personal struggles, Irvin dedicated her life to making other people more comfortable. She founded the original Body Massage Wellness Spa as a massage-only establishment, but through creativity and determination, has assembled a team of highly trained professionals and designed a space that is as soothing as the spa treatments on offer.
Guests sip warm cups of tea before a fragrant aromatherapy or deep-tissue massage, then head to a private room for a facial, Zerona laser body-contouring session, or Botox or Juvederm injection. During manicures, guests sit in cushy high-backed leather chairs facing wooden room dividers whose mirrored panels are ideal for admiring newly polished fingers or seeing how long you can make eye contact with yourself before it gets weird. To further banish quotidian stress, Irvin has outfitted the reception area with tranquil beige and blue-green earth tones and an abundance of plants.
