At The Derma Spa of Toledo, owner Liandra Hernandez leads a staff of complexion-improving aestheticians. To infuse faces with renewed youth, the specialized team harnesses services that include everything from cranberry mask facials and microdermabrasions to signature facelift peels consisting of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and enzymes. But crows' feet, third ears, and other signs of aging aren't the only things the crew can remove. Aestheticians can also vanquish acne with specialized treatments and wax away unwanted hair.
At Untamed Salon's design-conscious space, clients can fulfill their beauty needs with natural products. Zebra-printed curtains create an exotic backdrop behind extra-large mirrors, which allow clients to watch as stylists snip dos, paint locks with ammonia- and PPD-free hues, or defrizz strands with CHI Enviro's smoothing system. Natural products are used during other services, too. For example, exfoliating sugar scrubs accompany mani-pedis, detoxifying peppermint and seaweed body wraps slim physiques, and organic Fake Bake spray tans bronze bodies.
A Refinement Salon offers respite and relaxation with pampering beauty treatments. Services include hairstyling, mani-pedis, skincare, and makeup application. The staff also enhances eyes with lash extensions and smoothes skin with waxing.
Dr. Deitra Hickey, owner of Serenity Health & Wellness Center, certified life coach, and licensed counselor marshals a team of trained professionals to cultivate well-being with a range of services. The spa takes a holistic approach to relaxation and health, leading yoga classes, doling out all manner of massage therapies, redirecting chi with acupressure, and disguising patients for upcoming jewel heists with facials. Inside the med spa, warm tones and dim lighting infuse a sense of calm, while babbling fountains send rivulets of relaxation through patrons.
Board-certified physician Dr. Wade L. Banker knows a thing or two about vascular and interventional procedures. He was an interventional radiologist at both Cleveland Clinic and Metro Health and Chief of Vascular/Interventional at Mississippi Medical Center. At Luxe Laser Vein & Body Center, he and his highly-skilled and trained team use both their experience and the latest technology to beautify their clients in a state-of-the art atmosphere. They use the Cynosure Elite MPX laser to remove varicose veins and hair, the Smartlipo laser to evict fat cells, and the Revlite laser to erase embarrassing tattoos, such as a dragon breathing your social security number in flames. They also utilize traditional spa techniques, performing facials, microdermabrasions, and peels.
Renew Skin Therapy owner Robin Lemon wants to squeeze her carbon footprint into a toddler's size 2. That's why her face and body treatments use eco-friendly products, such as a hand cream that's similar to paraffin but without the petroleum. Often these products have a natural basis; the exfoliating body treatment blends sweet almond oil with organic sugar and shea butter, and the natural enzyme peel's solutions are derived from pomegranates, hibiscus flowers, and venus flytraps that were sentenced to destruction when they failed the audition for Little Shop of Horrors.
