The Esthetic Engineer owner Tiffany Schoefield understands the stressors of the 9-to-5 world. After she ran a ghostwriting business and managed political campaigns, her career took an about-face when she realized she was more interested in slowing down to appreciate life than in speeding it up. It was then that Tiffany turned to what has become her true calling—skincare—and she now devotes herself to helping her clients find their own quiet reprieves from daily life in her inviting spa.
For more than 15 years, Tiffany has trained in some of the skincare industry’s most trusted brands, including Aveda and SkinCeuticals. The spa’s licensed aestheticians help clients improve their skin’s appearance with treatments that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials with a variety of trusted skincare brands, including Éminence Organic Skin Care and Glo Therapeutics. Among the center’s many specialties are body waxing and makeovers, during which artists apply lash extensions, tint brows, or apply full makeup. Tiffany’s philosophy that her spa is an oasis for self-care and rejuvenation stands at the forefront throughout all of her services, and her staff emphasizes making clients happy with personalized attention and treatments.
At Beautiful Image Anti Aging, LLC, owner Elaine Colter and staff noninvasively freshen faces and physiques with the microcurrent sessions that have earned her business features in Lake Norman Woman magazine and the Charlotte Observer. During the procedure, conducting wands relay currents into bodies at key acupuncture points, speeding up the production of collagen and elastin and reeducating muscles to reduce wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and pick up cars. Potential benefits can include a youthful, pink glow, tighter skin, and a reduction in visible blemishes and under-eye circles.
Brandishing a Candela Elipse IPL laser, the trained staff at Yuvan targets a litany of pigmentation issues on the face, neck, and chest. The intense pulsed-light treatment dissipates complexion clogs obtained from acne scarring, age spots, sun damage, rosacea, or face-painting with glitter glue. Flashes of non-invasive light shine down on problem areas to disperse the buildup of pigmentation without scorching skinplanes. The treatment can also stimulate the production of collagen, which for some clients results in faces firm enough to fill in on drum lines that are missing snares.
With a combination of alternative therapies and traditional spa treatments, the experts of Healthy Habits Wellness Center help clients purify their bodies and renew their appearances. A team of aestheticians calls on ultra-gentle formulas from Osmosis Medical Skincare to resurface and revitalize complexions with chemical-peel alternatives and custom treatments. Inside the center's far-infrared sauna, infrared heat penetrates deep into bodies to help boost circulation, burn calories, and sweat out toxins. Certified therapists also assist clients with conducting their own colon cleanses using a safe and private method that gently administers the water using a gravity fed system, working to to cleanse toxins and boost energy levels. The center also provides cellular-health observations that aim to provide education into the body's inner workings, and helps boost wellness naturally with herbal supplements from Nature's Sunshine.
