At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
Aesthetician Tara Popp of Sublime Aesthetics believes that both medical and holistic spa services have a place within the beauty spectrum. She uses a combination of the two to build custom skincare solutions for her clients. The menu of services includes facials, microdermabrasion, and waxing to create healthy, smooth skin. The customized facial begins with a skin analysis, followed by cellular exfoliation and extractions to remove any clogged pores or cicadas hibernating in the wrong place. A follow up scalp, neck, and shoulder massage leaves muscles refreshed.
