Con’s Organic Spa owner Con Ciecko isn't just an expert in the beauty industry. She's also a reiki master and a medical tattoo technician. These specialties, along with her education and training at Michigan and California institutes, have prepared her to execute services that both beautify and relax her clients. Besides kneading muscles with several massage modalities, she cleanses skin with organic facials, bronzes limbs with airbrush tanning, and administers makeup applications for weddings or black-tie viewings of TV weddings. Joined by a skilled staff that includes her daughter Kiya, a massage therapist and nail technician, Ciecko infuses her new spa confines with a welcoming and personable vibe as she helps her clients develop their own signature looks.
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.
Instead of sitting in a traditional salon chair, aligned in a row with several others, Salon Kristen's clients settle into a square-shaped white chair in front of detached, individual stations scattered throughout the open floor plan. The team can beautify bodies from head to toe with a variety of services including haircuts and colors, waxing treatments, facials, and mani-pedis that use genetic tests to match nails to customers' exact shade of eyes. Patrons can even schedule girls’ nights out and princess parties to enjoy the salon experience with friends.
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.
Since opening the doors of their first location in 1997, Club Soleil has bronzed more than 46,000 Detroiters. The staff constantly switches out the lamps in the salon's collection of seven levels of beds and stand-up booths to keep tan times quick and the sun on its toes. For a UV-free glow, automated misting booths distribute 5 ounces of Magic Tan solution through 36 individual jets that coat the body evenly from head to toe. Certified tanning associates educate clients on the risks and benefits of each system as well as products for moisturizing the skin and extending the life of the tan.
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.
