Vallon MediSpa's classic european facial, a customized treatment, is a time-tested method of purifying pores, evening tone, and softening skin.

Makeup applications prep faces for weddings and other special occasions, while mani-pedis leave fingers and toes pretty and polished.
At Amherst Laser and Skin Care Center, aesthetic treatments go beyond ordinary waxing treatments and cleansing facials. Along with these basic offerings, Dr. Robert Weitzman and his dedicated staff use state-of-the-art lasers for a number of treatments, from banishing unwanted hair to spurring hair growth with a futuristic iGrow laser helmet. Other laser treatments include skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and tattoo removal.
Aestheticians also incorporate natural and holistic elements into a number of treatments designed to nourish the skin and help maintain a refreshed, youthful appearance. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a DiamondTome wand helps remove dead skin cells. The process can promote new skin cell growth and stimulate collagen while treating fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
