Started out as a mobile company in the summer of 2012, SpaGo gained enough interest that by the end of the year that they opened a physical location. Now, at their Chattanooga base, the team helps bring out the best in clients with a glamorizing slate of spa services, such as signature facials, body polishes, PCA chemical peels, and makeup applications. The beauty professionals also still tote the show to clients’ home turf with in-home spa parties.
The technicians at Amy's Right Touch beautify nails with vibrant coats of polish and artistic designs. Long-lasting gel and Shellac varnishes resist chips for up to two weeks, whereas acrylic tips add length and strength. But these techs don't limit their attention to fingers and toes. They also offer massage, waxing, and facials, and enhance features with permanent makeup and natural-looking eyelash extensions.
Education is key for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marcus Crawford. After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine, he went on to receive extensive training in cutting-edge reconstructive techniques at MD Anderson Cancer Center, which eventually led him to volunteer for a mission with Operation Smile in Lima, Peru, where he worked to repair cleft lips and other palate deformities in children. He also believes his patients should be properly educated about the procedures they undergo at his namesake office, and so Dr. Crawford and his team discuss each treatment option during a thorough consultation that reveals each patient’s beauty needs and aesthetic goals, and chart the best course of treatment.
Along with cosmetic surgery for the face and body, Crawford Plastic Surgery also offers nonsurgical med-spa services that include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm. The office is also outfitted with disposable permanent-makeup equipment, which technicians use to tattoo organic, cosmetic-colored ink onto skin, thus defining the brows, lips, and eyelids, or camouflaging scars caused by a malfunctioning magical wand.
Keeping up appearances is easier with professional help. That's why Melissa & Co. Salon's staff members cater to clients' needs with a variety of services to help visitors look their best. Stylists trim tresses and style strands for subtle updates, although they can also add dramatic depth or volume to clients' looks by incorporating highlights, adding extensions, or creating wavy locks with a specialty perm. Similarly, waxes keep visitors' skin smooth by uprooting unwanted stubble and removing stray cookie crumbs.
The Face and Body Place's Robin Poplin liberates faces of daily cosmetic regimens by lavishing eyes, brows, and lips with vibrant and steadfast permanent makeup. The licensed and certified derma-technician calls on 13 years of experience as she carefully and confidently guides an immaculately sanitized probe across the chosen area, imbuing the lower layers of skin with a permanent ink that complements each patient's unique coloring. The makeup, which can not run, smear, or rub off, leaves a natural-looking appearance that can last up to three years before requiring brightening in a refresher session or by napping on a stage actor's pillow. For those with sensitive skin, Robin also offers allergy tests and topical anesthetic before each session.
