The staff at Laser Plus Lasertrolysis & Skin Care—two registered nurses, seven electrologists, and a team of licensed aestheticians—stays abreast of industry trends through extensive training and continuing education. As the center’s name implies, many of its treatments involve laser-based removal of unwanted hair, veins, and skin imperfections. In addition to those advanced therapies, reflexology applies healing pressure to specific energy zones and mineral make up applications with Jane Iredale and organic Eminence products free up time for other important morning tasks, such as peeling off the sticky residue of one’s nightly cocoon.

The aestheticians at Day-Lux Mobile Spa help folks look their best with a menu of waxing, facials, and massage. The staffers ensure their waxing treatments are as comfortable as possible by using both hard and soft wax. They use soft wax to remove unwanted fuzz from larger areas?such as the legs and back?pulling it off with muslin strips, whereas they use hard wax to treat more sensitive areas?such as the bikini line and underarms. The hard wax attaches to the hair rather than the skin, and the aestheticians can quickly remove it without muslin strips. They also cater their massages to clients needs and preferences, using gentle Swedish strokes to relieve tension or the more intense deep-tissue kneads, which target chronic pain. Moving on to the face, the aestheticians work to cleanse and moisturize skin or tackle specific issues including acne and the signs of aging, which might manifest as fine lines or a disdain for boy bands.
The mission: physical transformation. At Solaris Laser & Skin Care, the staff performs a variety of bodily upgrades within calm and welcoming confines, and their repertoire hews to both the technological and the manual. Of course there's laser hair removal, performed via the Cynosure Vectus laser, a specialized piece of equipment that has a melanin reader to accommodate many different types of skin pigments. On the manual side of things are massages, treatments doled out deliberately in order to take on physical complaints, such as tight muscles, and emotional complaints such as stress. Solaris' service menu also features Physiodermie facials, permanent makeup, and body wraps intended to help clients slim down and perhaps fit into a favorite dress or trendy lobster bib.
The skin specialists at Trinity MedSpa understand that while many people have similar-looking skin, the differences can be as remarkable as they are difficult to see with the naked eye. Thankfully, their discoveries are powered by the spa’s advanced scanning systems, which analyze their clients' skin types and reveal the necessities that each requires to stay healthy. Once the team decodes the cellular intricacies and hidden treasure maps found on each person, they begin to customize treatments. Their specialties include facials, microdermabrasion treatments, extractions, and laser hair removal, which disables targeted follicles with heat and inhibits future hair growth.
