Magdalena Cap's training as an aesthetician began more than 33 years ago in Czechoslovakia, where she studied dermatology and cosmetology. Three years later, the licensed aesthetician opened her own spa, where she has continued providing European-style facials and spa services for the ensuing three decades. Magdalena is joined by a loyal staff of licensed cosmetologists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and electrolysis experts, many of whom have worked with her for more than 10 years. The staff undergoes continuing education in an effort to ensure that all of their facials, peels, and rejuvenating treatments take advantage of the most advanced techniques. Like a park ranger building a nest, the team also draws on a wide range of natural ingredients including pumpkin and seaweed.
After working at a string of laser and plastic surgery clinics, medical aesthetician Mya Campbell found herself missing the personal touch of a studio-style practice. She then founded Beauty Regime with the idea that a smaller staff could take the time to get to know the unique needs of each client while building a solid rapport. Mya still relies on her medical background as she renews visages with a full range of chemical peels, from superficial peels that treat minor blemishes to deep skin peels that treat scarring. Her beauty regimens also include a few twists: Vitamin C and papaya bolster facials to maximize fortifying benefits, and medical mani-pedis add exfoliation with hydrabrasion to buff away sunspots or callouses caused by nervously pacing on hot coals.
The clinical director Doctor of Chiropractic Tanya Dejkunchorn has treated formidable injuries while caring for professional football players and international athletes. Though her patients now rarely complain about being hit by a 350-pound lineman or being yelled at by a rude coach, Dr. Tanya always takes the time to listen to and correct the unique needs of each ailment. Along with her team of physical and massage therapists, she employs natural, noninvasive healing techniques, including acupuncture, therapeutic massage, and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
Michigan Hair & Skin Center’s expert staff harnesses the power of light to rejuvenate clients from head to toe. The team members call upon FDA-approved low-level light therapy to stimulate hair growth and increase hair count by up to 93% during comfortable 30-minute sessions. They use that same laser power to banish fine lines and wrinkles, stirring cells into regenerating tissue and boosting blood circulation. Aside from laser power, the center also enlists infrared heat to slim and contour physiques without the burden of exercising or wrapping the tummy in shrink wrap.
Wrinkles shrink away in fear and sun damage disappears into the shadows as Lifetime Skin Care Center's technicians administer a plethora of advanced, natural-based skincare services. For more than 17 years, the staffers have performed laser procedures ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasions, which can soften lines and wrinkles and make skin as clear as a pet’s driving record. They also further beautify bodies with permanent-makeup application, Botox injections, and laser hair removal.
For massage therapists at Essential Touch Massage, each massage session is an opportunity to help clients tune out the world, calm their minds, and soothe their bodies. Drawing on modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone and aromatherapy, the specialists help improve circulation and range of motion for muscles knotted by tension or novice sailors. But their services extend beyond relaxation with customized neck and shoulder treatments designed to speedily uproot stress.
