The wand wielders at #1 Nail Pro Salon and Spa peel back skin’s rough outer layers to unveil fresh complexions during premium microdermabrasion treatments that go beyond simple exfoliation. Aestheticians begin each complexion-smoothing session with a thorough skin analysis, discerning dermal conditions through close inspection and anonymous surveys of skin cells. After a cleansing that works deep into epidermal coverings, wafts of steam blast visages to unclog pores, and hands glide over facial structures in a soothing massage.
Eyebrow reshaping with threading, along with hair waxing and facials, are a sampling of the specialty services administered by the Hair Rageous team. The styling squad also straightens unruly locks, eradicates frizz with keratin treatments, and trims the tresses of ladies and gents. Elsewhere, at Hair Rageous' medi-spa, laser hair technicians work with Alma Soprano XLi laser hair-removal equipment that adapts to all skin and hair types—including tanned skin and most hair colors—as it heats follicles lurking beneath skin.
For 10 years, Dawn Thompson worked beside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons as a surgical assistant. Armed with that experience and her education as an aesthetician, Dawn takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare at Island Skin and Laser, a recipient of a 2012 Seattle Award. Her firsthand experience helps her to personalize treatments to each client using medical-grade skincare products by lines such as SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Revaléskin, none of which contain perfumes or dyes. The aesthetician tackles common skincare issues with treatments ranging from traditional facials to advanced hydrafacials, erbium facials, and photofacials. As a laser pro, Dawn can also shine a light to banish unwanted hairs and bats that are bothering bodies.
The doctors at Mercer Island Chiropractic work to relieve minor aches and soreness, but they specialize in tough cases: chronic pain and injuries sustained in accidents are their specialties. At three locations, they restore bodies to health with techniques such as manual adjustments that realign vertebrae and traction-table sessions that coax muscles into blissful relaxation. Patients can also rest easy beneath the hands of massage therapists, who employ techniques such as cupping, reflexology, and sternly ordering tension to exit the body.
Within a black-and-white 1,500-square-foot facility embellished with tropical accents, Kucumber Skin Lounge's physician-supervised medical aestheticians enhance earthly edifices with hair removal sessions performed with lasers or customized wax, Botox injections, and cutting-edge skin treatments such as hydrafacials, photofacials, and chemical peels. Tattoo removal services rid bodies of the names of ex-lovers or outdated maps leading to safe-deposit boxes hidden during the Y2K scare. Other body beautifiers include tanning and specialized cosmetic treatments.

A native of Poland, Celina Lewandowski first moved to the United States in 1991?where, for 12 years, she provided home care for elderly patients suffering from eating disorders and intestinal problems. She eventually discovered colon hydrotherapy, became a certified colon hydrotherapist and endermologie technician, and decided to open her own clinic and use the gentle body-cleansing system to relieve intestinal dysfunction.
At her clinic, European Rejuvenation Center, she helps fight bloating, irritable bowels, constipation, and fatigue with a LIBBE open colon-hydrotherapy system. This system is easy to self-operate and, like a treehouse on the moon, affords clients as much privacy as they desire. Celina also combats toxins with ionic footbaths, nutritional therapy, lipomassage, endermologie, and infrared-sauna sessions.
