At Total Laser Concepts, concentrated beams of light build the foundation of various non-surgical, anti-aging procedures and treatments while coffee-colored walls and French doors create a sense of repose. The crack team unholsters their laser beams to eradicate unwanted hair, spirit away spider veins, and lure away wrinkles and tighten skin. Therapists seek to stave off the anxiety that causes other maladies with a slate of massage modalities, including deep tissue and Swedish. Total Laser Concepts also carries medical-grade skincare products, with each bottle dressed in little stethoscopes to ensure their authenticity.
Located close to Buford's Mall of Georgia, Total Health Spa is a soothing massage and spa center designed to calm clients from the moment they walk in the door.

The professional-yet-friendly staff and purposefully quiet vibe at Total Health Spa make this massage center a rejuvenating spot to help tired muscles relax.
During his 17 years in the hospitality field, Tom Uhlenhake learned a few things: communication skills, empathy, and most importantly, he learned the satisfaction of helping others. As a more direct way or bringing people relief, he started training as a massage therapist at the Academy of Somatic Healing Art, where he fine-tuned a diverse array of therapeutic techniques—all of which are now available out of Tom's private massage studio. Guests can solicit his expertise in specialty neuromuscular therapy, Swedish massage, or the deep foam-finger kneading of an integrated sports massage.
When it comes to elongating ‘dos with extensions, the styling team at Michel's Salon & Day Spa know that there are no substitutes for real hair. That’s why they use Great Lengths extensions, all of which are made entirely from human hair, and result in cascading tresses. But extensions only skim the surface of the salon’s hair care, which range from brightening strands with single-process color to smoothing locks with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments.
And hair care, in turn, only skims the surface of services Michel Njem and his team of expert aestheticians have offered since 1998. Heated basalt stones help soothe achy muscles during massages, while marine botanical masques enrich skin during seaweed facials, a more accessible option than finding a mermaid to nuzzle. Michel’s even piles pampering upon pampering by concluding relaxing pedicures with a dip in the private pedicure room’s Jacuzzi foot bath.
Essential oils offer therapeutic benefits to both the body and mind. Lemongrass rejuvenates, peppermint refreshes, and lavender calms frazzled nerves. The bodywork experts at Xscape Massage & Spa offer these and other natural essences as add-ons to their soothing massage sessions. Clients may choose from modalities such as classic Swedish and deep-tissue massage or traditional Chinese cupping and Thai yoga massage. For those seeking a cleansing or anti-aging beauty treatment, the aestheticians buff away wrinkles with microdermabrasion and shoo away acne with customized masks.
BLC Massage’s team of licensed massage therapists draws on massage techniques from around the world to knead muscles into blissful repose. Especially apropos for athletes or intensely stressed physiques, deep-tissue massage targets aches and pains with slow strokes, loosening fascia for deeper relief more effectively than allowing a troupe of girl scouts to tap dance along your spine. Gentler Swedish massage helps improve circulation in superficial tissue, and Thai techniques, stationed on a mat instead of a table, combine the centering properties of yogic exercises with calming massage. Therapists place heated rocks along strategic locations of the body during the hot-stone massage, constructing a miniature Stonehenge to slough off stress and becalm frazzled nerves.
