Western Reserve's team of plastic surgeons and licensed aestheticians restore complexions with high-end skincare products and attentive service. Custom micropeels retexturize and rejuvenate worn visages to deter the effects of aging, skin sensitivity, acne, and Halloween masks that have fused to patients' faces ($100–$150). A comprehensive skin evaluation helps the skin sculptors determine the correct balance of hydrating and exfoliating products needed to effectively treat individual skin qualms such as fine lines, discoloration, and sun and environmental damage ($50). Like parents ushering children off to school, each micropeel gently encourages dead skin cells to leave home and never return. At the end of three tailored treatments, patients should expect previously furrowed brows to feel more hydrated, relaxed, and youthful.
As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
