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.
Simply Beautiful Skincare’s owner and aesthetician, Amanda Miller, guides arriving guests to a private treatment room within the studio's tranquil space.

Amanda regularly attends classes to further sharpen her aesthetic skills.
Adagio Massage Company sows the seeds of relaxation with buckets of natural remedies.

Guests kick back with a complimentary glass of champagne and organic dessert, and customize their own treatments by choosing aromatherapy and specialty oils to add to the relaxation.
Each of the stylists at Bishop?s Salon & Day Spa goes through a rigorous training program before putting scissor to strands. Armed with knowledge, they use Aveda?s plant-based products to nourish hair during precision cuts and color treatments.

Bellevue Tanning Club harbors a fleet of 21 technologically advanced tanning units, all kept sparkling clean and decked out with fresh bulbs by a knowledgeable staff. Low-pressure beds beam UVA and UVB rays to build a solid base tan; high-pressure beds and standup units rapidly bronze bodies almost exclusively with UVA rays to minimize the risk of burning. While vitamin D washes over tanners, a built-in fan cools skin and an internal CD stereo system lets clients catch up on the latest hits and listen to self-released karaoke performances. For a speedier service that delivers a summery glow without the beach-style lounge experience, spray tanning quickly bronzes skin with a DHA sugar-based solution matched to skin tone.
Bellevue Tanning Club's tranquil décor, with walls painted periwinkle blue, white trellises, and tropical plants, recalls a sandy boardwalk on a sunny day. The staff also takes their services on the road to spray tan clients before noteworthy events, such as weddings, surprise parties, or surprise weddings.
Bellevue Medispa exalts the power of Iridex lasers to gently reveal smooth, healthy skin. Both FDA-cleared, their two lasers nimbly zap body hair and varicose veins without ablating the skin's surface or accidentally taking out nearby Darth Vader impersonators. The warm beams also stimulate cellular renewal to rejuvenate weathered complexions and gently assuage rosacea and acne inflammation. Staffers have more than six years of experience with cosmetic injections, which they are certified to administer safely in their office or your home, halting wrinkles and plumping skin on-location.
