Renew Massage Therapy rejuvenates weary bodies through an assortment of soothing and healing treatments. Patrons who partake in the Slice of Paradise package get to first relax under the hands of a skilled massage therapist who is wise in the ways of kneading sore muscles and reducing tension in joints. Then, loosened shoulders are balanced out by pores that get tightened during an exfoliating and deeply cleansing facial. The hand glow treatment uses salt scrub, paraffin dip, and angel wishes to moisturize rough paws. Thirty minutes of reflexology concludes the pampering by stimulating pressure points on extremities to improve circulation and iron crinkled phalanges into straight, invigorated jazz hands.
More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
Registered nurse Lisa Grissim opened Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics to improve the health and look of the body’s largest and most visible organ: the skin. She recruited Dr. Thomas Miller to supervise the staff, which includes fellow registered nurses and licensed aestheticians. The crew’s intense focus on skin treatments—which range from anti-aging laser treatments to Botox injections—grants them a degree of expertise they use to help customers understand their skincare options. Staffers unpack technical terms and lend personalized advice to steer clients toward ideal treatments. Lisa explains, “We want to form lasting relationships with clients and rejoice with them as they experience the changes they desire.”
Though it has the staff, state-of-the-art laser equipment, and immortality serums of an advanced med-spa, the office sets itself apart with an upscale, salon-like atmosphere. Sun floods the lobby, where bunches of flowers and potted plants add an organic element to the modern décor. Shelves line up some of the world’s premiere skincare lines, including Obagi, Avène, and SkinCeuticals.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Jones and his medical aesthetician, Christy, nip, tuck, and tighten bodies with surgical and blade-free procedures at Lakevue Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. They augment and reconstruct breasts, lift faces, and fine-tune noses, or sculpt new physiques with liposuction and Kemper tools. They also shoot down unwanted hairs or tighten slack skin with noninvasive lasers. To further enhance patient comfort, the clinic boasts a special, dimly lit private waiting area for cosmetic clients who may be feeling sensitive after a procedure, as well as a "lidocaine lounge" where patients practice magazine origami while waiting for their numbing solution to take effect.
Reneaux Day Spa is all about pampering their guests. Whether it's through a new haircut, a Shellac manicure, or a deep-cleansing facial, guests leave looking and feeling great. Wild-lavender body scrubs use grape seeds and sandalwood essential oils to smooth and exfoliate the skin, whereas thai lemongrass body masks relieve achy joints. Physiques are further pampered with seven types of massages, which work to relax clients and relieve aches, pains, and slipknots.
