Body, Mind and Spirit Med Spa's staff soothes clients in a tranquil oasis where aromatherapy gives depth to every treatment. Massage therapists knead stress away to the mesmerizing rhythms of a nature soundtrack teeming with water sounds. Even nail services get a spa-like treatment, including some pedicures augmented with hot stones. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians cleanse and soften skin during facial and body treatments using Dermalogica products. Spa packages include a signature service, where patrons remain on the table throughout a massage, pedicure, and facial, all performed by an experienced therapist. In this space, decorated in chocolate and taupe shades, leafy green plants add a pop of color.
Rhonda Lloyd has more specialties than people have fingers and toes––well, most people. Rhonda's focus is on results-driven facials, including chemical peels, peel alternatives, microdermabrasion, and PCA Skin treatments. She's also a clinical aesthetician, manicurist, and a licensed massage therapist. In the comfort of her private studio, clients can seek relaxation with a firm deep-tissue massage, or requisition her reflexology expertise to promote healing through the feet, hands, and ears.
Guided by plastic surgeon and owner Dr. Martin Blue, the staff at Mirage Medi Spa cleanses and exfoliates complexions with treatments customized to clients' skin concerns, from hair-removing Brazilian and bikini waxes to medical-grade chemical peels. To ensure the staff meets high standards, each employee is handpicked based on their medical training and then encouraged to further develop their skills with prescription Obagi advanced training and PCA medical skincare line advanced training. At the med-spa, the aestheticians draw on their extensive knowledge during consultations. Understanding that each client's skin is as unique as a snowflake?s thumbprint, the staff scrutinizes skin with a complete analysis. Then, their creativity comes into play. The team uses that information to customize a facial, chemical peel, or microdermabrasion treatment, blending medical-grade ingredients to address concerns ranging from acne to rosacea.
Though they originally opened as Renaissance Hair Removal in 2005, the team behind The Med Spa quickly realized that their clients were seeking different ways to look younger and feel more beautiful. They would later changed their name to reflect the breadth of their newly added services, which now include laser treatments, skincare, and teeth whitening using Energist Ultra VPL and Aerolase, making treatments safe for all skin types, including darker skin. In addition to removing hair, they can target acne, rosacea, or wrinkles with laser technology, or perform non-laser resurfacing HydraFacials that infuse skin with moisture. The clinic also offers the Diamond Medilift: a noninvasive macro- and micro-current procedure that stimulates facial muscles better than watching Animal House and Beaches simultaneously on two separate TVs.
The vintage decor and funky vinyl records on the ceiling and walls of Graffiti Salon reflect the fashion-forward sensibilities of the hairdressing team, which cuts, colors, and styles locks with innovative shapes and eye-catching hues. From the same square styling chairs, stylists extend strands with Hot Hedz hair extensions, banish superfluous frizz and curl with straightening treatments, and enhance tress texture and color with vibrant feather applications. Tucked away from the bustling salon is a private spa room, whose soft music, aquariums, and babbling fountains urge away excess tension during every treatment. Within the calming space, spa staff lavishes bodies with massages, custom facials, and microdermabrasion facials, which slough off dull skin cells to keep living ones from hearing the same stale anecdotes about last year's sunburn.
