Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials, as well as Planet Beach's signature take on tantastic UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($40 per session), and luminous facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
Before opening Salon Jack, owner and head stylist Chad Malm spent most of his professional life working with a diverse clientele and had his work featured in fashion publications such as Allure and Harper’s Bazaar. He also traveled extensively as an educator for Bumble and bumble, learning the latest styling trends along the way. Now that he’s settled down, Chad continues to bring the same level of commitment and energy to his work with all kinds of customers and insists that his stylists do, too. As he says on his website, the salon hires stylists "who are inspired by what they do and are on fire for it." All stylists have undergone extensive training in the latest hair trends and are well versed in professional products such as Wella hair color and GKHair keratin hair-smoothing treatments.
At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology. The experts shy away from invasive surgery and instead employ ultrasonic technology to target fat deposits and ultherapy to sculpt arms and necks. The spa’s arsenal also includes detoxifying and slimming body wraps, as well as chemical peels that help erase fine lines and other signs of aging. For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
TranquiLaser's technicians wield two all-important tools for efficient hair removal: Candela technology and trust. Typically, clients meet with the same technician for each of their visits, a practice that results in more personalized treatments and a more comfortable overall experience. And, because the center performs laser hair removal exclusively, every staff member has finely honed his or her skills. Their noninvasive service stops hair growth on any skin type by beaming heat into the follicle. Over the course of several treatments (six on average), the follicle shuts down, leaving areas such as bikini lines, underarms, and chins smoother than a marble statue of Casanova.
Bubblegum pink. Sugary treats. Rhinestones and glitter. Sweet and Sassy’s stylists pamper moppets during shrunken-down spa treatments spun with these elements. As tots lounge on tangerine pillows, kid-calibrated manicures and pedicures bejewel their keratin shields with sparkly nail art and adorn their favorite digits with rings and toe rings. Facials slather visages with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' facial regions so that they can stop lodging beads in their nostrils. For birthday parties, celebrants can arrive in the spa’s pink limousine before strutting down the runway in Sweet and Sassy’s glittery gowns.
