Although stylist Megan Pelfrey shares her expertise with future stylists as a beauty instructor, her skills really shine at Salon 909. Here, she draws on her training at Paul Mitchell School when performing designer cuts, Aveda color treatments, and hair extensions. As a cosmetologist, her talents surpass hair alone; she also cleans out pores with facials and clears away unwanted hair with waxing.
At "Ultra"Sound Body Creations, technicians employ two tools to reduce stubborn fat deposits: the Cavi-Lipo machine, and the client's lymphatic system. The Cavi-Lipo's applicator glides over areas, such as the legs, abdomen, and neck, rupturing fat cells. The cells' contents are then processed by the lymphatic system, leaving the treated area with less cellulite and firmer skin. Consultations before each treatment ensure that guests receive personalized advice, and body wraps are available to promote lymphatic drainage following appointments.
A medical facility dedicated to restoring skin to its youthful vibrancy, Menage-a-Spa treats clients under the guidance of the State of Ohio Medical Boards while keeping all procedures confidential. A board-certified staff of doctors, nurses, and dermatological experts reignites complexions until they glow with renewed radiance. Eradicate unwanted guest appearances by pores, blackheads, and shallow acne scars with a noninvasive microdermabrasion treatment that exfoliates and suctions up debris better than a diamond-tipped wet-vac, leaving faces looking younger and refreshed.
Amid taupe and lavender walls, Studio 11 Salon and Day Spa's staffers groom physiques head to toe with a suite of pampering services. Licensed aestheticians perform a dozen facial treatments, dousing skin in rejuvenating products to help to remedy fine lines, uneven or dull skin tone, and ill-timed lycanthropy. Nail technicians meticulously trim and shape talons, and hairstylists diligently shampoo tresses at salon stations as clients crane their necks to spot the Magic-Eye picture hidden in a nearby oriental rug.
Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
