As a licensed aesthetician since 1999, Stephanie clears and revitalizes skin with exfoliating body scrubs, footbaths, and waxing services. She also delves into massage-oriented techniques, such as reflexology and hot-stone treatments that melt away tension and accidentally swallowed ice cubes. Her facials, however, are what earned her a profile from George Austin of the Spectator. “Do you want to have skin like a celebrity?” Austin asks rhetorically. “Stephanie Roberts may be able to help you with…dermaculture that firms and tightens skin, keeping it looking young.”
Lynne Reilly—a certified laser technician, licensed aesthetician, and registered electrologist with 16 years of experience—along with her skilled and knowledgable staff know that the best makeovers start with the face. That’s why their menu builds on hair removal and salon services with 17 facial treatments that soothe skin and clear out pores with Dermologica products and techniques such as microdermabrasion, masques, and cupping. Registered and licensed aestheticians lead their clients to treatment rooms amid the salon’s chic and colorful décor filled with hardwood floors and modern fixtures.
CAT Studio, which began primarily as an airbrush-tanning salon, expanded to include pole-fitness classes after owner and pole-fitness aficionado Jessica Williams was persuaded to do so by her clients. Since then, Jessica has furnished her studio with a disco ball and four poles, which students use during fun, challenging workout routines that combine dance, fitness, and acrobatics. Both of Jessica’s instructors have at least two years of pole-fitness experience and can speak personally to its effectiveness: each is a new mother that got back into shape by practicing the fun exercise. Classes are designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels; beginners usually wear shorts and a T-shirt.
Aside from pole fitness, the studio’s team of airbrush artists customizes spray tans while taking into consideration the client's skin tone, preference of golden hue, and aspirations to look like an Oscar award. Airbrush-tanning sessions can be further personalized with select scents, tanning lotions, and body glitter, and the studio also carries a variety of tanning products for home use. Custom airbrush tattoos are available for those that want to sport a cool design for an upcoming event or just for fun.

Forty-six-year-old single mom Leslie was so inspired by her first encounters with LED phototherapy that she became certified as a skin technician shortly thereafter. Today, more than 10 years later, she helps her clients eschew the need to drop thousands of dollars on injections, plastic surgery, and facial creams by harnessing blue- and red-light technologies. With careful calibrations, she has found laser therapy to effectively treat fine lines, cellulite, and acne.
Spa Noor's staff enhances clients' aesthetic appeal with a bounty of skin services, fillers, and injectable treatments. Smooth out facial etchings by temporarily immobilizing muscles with nonsurgical Dysport treatments. The injected treatment improves lines left by frowny faces and helps to restore visages to a youthful, less stressed expression. Sclerotherapy treatments aim to eradicate veiny marks, with an injection of solution that makes veins swell and stick together, eventually turning into scar tissue that fades from view. Both treatments are preceded by a consultation, during which clients and physicians can discuss the chosen treatment and any accompanying concerns, as well as their favorite brand of salad dressing.
