In an inviting space with chic decor and elegant draperies, the licensed aestheticians of Regenesis Skin Studio use advanced technologies to improve the appearance and texture of clients' skin. Phototherapy treatments serve a variety of purposes, from fading hyperpigmentation to eliminating unwanted hair, and custom peels exfoliate skin for a more youthful look. Patrons can also shop for home-use products by Rhonda Allison, HydroPeptide, and other esteemed skincare companies.
Four of Fuze Salon's stylists have more than a decade of experience, and Artistic Director Chip Perry has spent more than two decades in the business. Perry spent time as a national performing artist for Redken and specialized in teaching corrective color at the Redken Exchange, so it’s no surprise the salon uses ammonia-free Redken Chromatics dye as its go-to. Like Fievel Mousekewitz, his journey to happiness began with petty theft. His online biography describes how he would commandeer his neighbors' dolls as a child and "spend hours trying to twist the two inches of fiber into different shapes.” Now, he styles brides and men's cuts with equal dexterity, and keeps his hands busy raising two dogs, contributing to the boards of two charitable organizations, and rallying the community around philanthropic drives and walks.
The staff at Elite Laser Care aren't one-trick ponies. Dr. Maureen Whelihan is not only a certified laser expert but also a board-certified gynecologist; her sister and colleague, Gina Whelihan, is a certified medical electrologist with special trianing in laser facial treatments and vein removal. Together, they have provided laser treatments at Elite Laser Care for more than 14 years. They rely on lasers to remove clients' unwanted body hair, pigmented lesions, and spider veins; the staff also uses the high-tech equipment to rejuvenate facial skin.
At Plush Salon, Mira, a licensed aesthetician who has made appearances on the Charlotte Today show and trained in New York and Boston, works with clients to shape and color brows and lashes. Staying true to its name, Plush Salon’s elegant interior features dangling chandeliers, cozy and modern furniture, and zero hair-eating hammerhead sharks. Mira applies makeup and waxes brows, putting to use her extensive training gained at Ulta, Nordstrom, and other high-end establishments.
Idolize Brows & Beauty's threading experts shape and manage facial hair without chemicals or blades. Their gentle threading treatments precisely shape eyebrows or completely banish hair from the chin, sideburns, cheeks, or neck. Beyond their string-centered services, the aestheticians also offer eyelash extensions in three different lengths.
At Nola Spa, a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion resurfaces the skin by sloughing off dead cells and smoothing signs of age, such as fine lines and John Hancock's signature. The spa's signature facial cleanses pores with customized treatments that recharge and illuminate the skin. Back facials, meanwhile, relax stressed stretches of flesh surrounding the spine and its many tiny faces. Specialists exfoliate dead epidermal layers before kneading muscle clusters trapped along the vertebrae. Hot steam and a mask then draw out dirt, oil, and other toxins staking claims to pores.
