Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa's seasoned aestheticians beautify bodies with a range of noninvasive prettifying techniques from haircuts to body wraps. An expansive ocean mural presides over the scene as massages unfurl muscles, and clenched fists release their tension during a pampering manicure and a paraffin treatment that reduces lines, like a speedy ticket redeemer at an amusement park. As stylists snip locks in the wood-paneled salon, guests can bid adieu to leg fuzzies before an aerodynamics-promoting waxing. Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa proudly throws its hair in the ring of the Locks of Love program, a nonprofit dedicated to matching donated tresses to disadvantaged children.
Isogei, microgei, and flash rejuvenation might sound like things from a science fiction novel, but in fact, they are anti-aging technologies used at Changes Topeka. These treatments work to firm up muscles with gentle electrical pulses or help improve skin tone with bursts of light energy. Infrared light combats localized deposits of fat to improve your appearance in a bathing suit or adult onesie, and Nerium facials ward off wrinkles without surgery.
The long-lasting laser treatments at Family Medicine Associates safely transform hair-plagued skinscapes into barren plains of sleekly smooth body canvas. A seasoned aesthetician carries out each lasering in absolute privacy, doling out topical numbing cream to sensitive areas as needed, as well as blindfolds and last meals to doomed patches of fur. The powerful beams of the Cutera zap away unwanted fuzz with sophisticated precision, destroying hair shafts at the follicle root. After up to six treatments in the same zone, clients emerge with unobstructed skin that's smooth, more aerodynamic, and able to be decorated with ornate tattoos or tattoos of long-lost hairs.
No one knows your body better than you do. That's why the licensed massage therapists at Channels of Healing focus on you—your words and your history. Each session begins with a consultation to discuss your health concerns and goals. After these elements are accounted for, the therapist can fill in the gaps with nutrition education, personal training, and a custom blend of soothing bodywork. Massage techniques may include focused neuromuscular pressure therapy or gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques to ease tension.
Under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon, aestheticians at The Plastic Surgery Clinic use IPL lasers to quickly and thoroughly remove patches of unwanted hair as clients lie comfortably atop body-length treatment chairs. Although treatments typically conclude within 15 to 30 minutes, initial appointments may last up to an hour, so clients have ample time to fill out paperwork and longingly gaze into the receptionist's eyes. During each session, specialists scan the skin with intense pulsed light that absorbs into the melanin of hair follicles, destroying them at the root. The application of antibiotic ointments and moisturizers follows the treatment, soothing away skin irritation while clients sip on complimentary soda, coffee, or hot chocolate. Visits must be spaced three to four weeks apart to account for varying cycles of hair growth and trade restrictions with the planet Xenon where the laser fuel is purchased.
