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]]
Although a medical doctor and nursing staff oversees the treatments at Success Weight Loss & Medspa, the atmosphere feels nothing like a doctor’s office. Operating under the belief that medically based beautification shouldn’t involve stress or discomfort, the center’s team supplements services, such as custom facials, bikini waxing, and nonsurgical weight-loss treatments, with relaxing elements including shea butter cream and hot towels infused with essential oils.
But Success Weight Loss & Medspa’s services aren’t all towels and butter. For instance, professional-grade ingredients revive tired complexions during facials, glow peels, and rejuvenating eye treatments. While clients kick back and relax, those ingredients get busy retexturing skin, drawing out oils, and erasing dark spots shaped like bull’s eyes, which attract cream pies. Success Weight Loss & Medspa also offers services such as customized airbrush tanning and teeth whitening.
The aestheticians at The Skin Boutique know that, as the largest organ in the human body, skin deserves its fair share of pampering attention. At their studio, they perform a number of services one simply cannot replicate at home. These include full-body waxing, custom airbrush spray tans, and deep-cleansing facials. While performing treatments, the aestheticians rely on products from Prana SpaCeuticals, a natural line of products made with organic botanicals, herbs, nut oils, and Hollywood-celebrity tears.
Though the experienced stylists at Hair Distinctions perform a slew beauty services that range from signature blow-outs to hair extensions, they specialize in corrective treatments for hair problems that result from Florida?s harsh climate. Tools from their blow-out bar help reinstate shape and health to humidity-ravaged hair with services when combined with keratin treatments and deep conditionings. Regardless of the treatment, the stylists draw from an arsenal of gentle, top-of-the-line products from Redken, Mixed Chicks, Davines, and Lanza. A newly installed blow-dry bar separate from the rest of the salon allows guests to come in for the Blow-Dry Bar or even an up-do, complete with shampoo and scalp massage.
To compliment newly revitalized heads of hair, the staffers can apply makeup for special occasions.
When Vicky Lysenko took over Bliss Facial Spa, she quickly realized the challenge she?d signed up for. With no experience in the skincare industry and only the advice of her cosmetologist daughter, Lysenko was overwhelmed by the time and energy it took to maintain a high-quality spa. Today, four years later, Lysenko and her team of aestheticians have proven their mettle. To achieve this success, Lysenko seeks out only the best staff members; in addition to training and ability, she looks for aestheticians with interpersonal skills and a team mentality. Lysenko also keeps her spa on the cutting edge of cosmetic technology. In addition to performing traditional spa services with products from Image Skincare and treatments like the HydraFacial, the staff at Bliss swiftly corrects blemishes and jostles circadian rhythms with FDA-approved light-therapy treatments. Lysenko recalls light-therapy clients who arrived with severe acne or fallout from poorly performed chemical peels. After a series of treatments, their faces were evidence enough of the technology's mending power. ?It?s incredible how fast and how well [they] healed,? she gushes. ?We really have a lot of faith in that light.?
Gold picture frames, curlicue chandeliers, and animal prints accent the chocolate-hued drawing room where hair and nails receive royal treatments at Oliva Salon & Spa. Digits delight in herbs and essential oils made from pressed, vine-ripened rhinestones before nails are slicked with polish from shellac and Axxium by OPI. When owner and certified Alfaparf color instructor Zan Oliva isn't training stylists throughout Central Florida, she's using her 20 years of experience to pamper her own clients' strands with dimensional and corrective coloring.
