In helping patients attain complete wellness and optimal health, Doctor of Osteopathy Mark S. Neumann is committed to creating a personalized plan for each individual. His approach, which comes from constant personal research and more than 30 years of experience in chiropractic and osteopathic medicine, focuses on addressing the root cause of ailments rather than simply masking symptoms with harmful medications. His services include helping patients with weight loss through a focus on nutrition and stress reduction and treating fatigue, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders. Along with cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and anti-aging microdermabrasion, his practice also performs laser hair removal to help clients shave milliseconds off their swim times and the showering portion of triathlons.
Sunlight pours through the large windows of Aarie Styles. Inside, the stylists are busy at their stations, beautifying men, women, and kids' locks with haircuts. They also upgrade hair with color, perms, and feather extensions—or go the opposite route and just get rid of it with waxing services.
At Flat Rock Aesthetics, board-certified physicians Dr. David Patterson and Dr. Jennifer Fetz oversee teams of experienced laser technicians who fix up skins with high-tech treatments. Noninvasive light therapy can kick-start the skin's natural collagen production, obscure hyperpigmentation, and obliterate scar tissue, while CoolGlide lasers evict unwanted hair with little to no heat, discomfort, or legal intervention. The savvy techs can also shut-down facial and spider veins with noninvasive procedures that are safe for all skin types.
Under the expertise of owner and board-certified aesthetician Nancy Young, skincare professionals at dbts Skin Bar-Corporate use zone-by-zone facial mapping to create custom skin therapy. With high-end Dermalogica products in tow, staffers fight a variety of dermal foes, including acne blemishes, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scars in the shape of ATM PINs. Using a blend of antioxidants, glycolic acids, and fruit acids, treatments such as advanced rejuvenating chemical peels strip away the exterior layer of skin to promote collagen production and unearth healthier new skin. Other skin-therapy treatments diminish hyperpigmentation or slow the process of aging. Not only do the specialty treatments leave skin smoother, but the light-based hair-removal services contribute to a sleeker façade.
Jessica Elkins's eponymous spa is a tribute to her love of plants, nature, and beauty. During her aesthetics training, Jessica worked in the bodycare department of a natural-foods market, assisting clients as they selected lotions, rinses, or cucumbers. She then turned her attention to biochemistry, a field of study that explores the chemical processes in living organisms. By learning how cellular components interact, Jessica broadened her ability to resolve or diminish skin conditions with specific products. At the spa, Jessica works alongside aestheticians who perform custom facials with natural ingredients from Europe or minerals from the mines of Moria. Wax technicians specialize in Brazilian and eyebrow services, and cosmetologists perform makeup applications with mineral pigments.
