The aestheticians at Spa in the Hollow believe in indulgence. Operating under the philosophy that life is "sweeter with a little instant gratification and self-indulgence," they've welcomed guests to their peaceful spa for over a decade. Visitors can begin their journeys in the Serenity Room, taking some light refreshment while basking in the glow of a fireplace. Then, for an elemental contrast, they might lie down beside a waterfall for a massage in the garden gazebo, set in a landscape that includes a pond landscaped with Eastern-style trees, rocks, and grasses. Drawing on a different kind of vegetation, mango or coconut lime pedicures soften feet as the hands cradle a complimentary cocktail designed to make their insides feel tropically smooth.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Sacred Image Med Spa, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
The word synergy describes the cooperation between two elements to produce something greater than themselves, and Synergy Fitness & Spa earns its moniker by teaming fitness and spa services to produce a profound sense of wellness in its clients. Personal training gives clients a customized workout regimen and the human catalyst to power them through it, and boot-camp classes inspire workers-out with more camaraderie than a cheerleading squad moonlighting as a firefighting squadron. Alternatively, Synergy’s spa branch exudes serenity, inspiring clients to slip into deep relaxation as they undergo facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
When stylist Diane Scabilloni, who now holds more than 25 years of experience, founded her full-service salon in 2003, she did so with skill and talent, ensuring that visitors to Above All BeauDee were in safe, stylish hands. Goings-on at the beauty hub include cosmetic services, but also complimentary monthly workshops on topics such as essential oils, stress management, and weight loss. But during the day, guests opt for services such as hair styling, nail care, skin care, and waxing. AromaTOUCH technique and cellulite-targeting body wraps issue whole-body relaxation, while those seeking a golden tan choose between UV beds, organic spray tanning, and patty-cake with staffer King Midas.
Backed by a quarter-century?s worth of experience, Tracey and her staff at Pittsburgh Permanent Makeup & Laser Center zap away unwanted ink and make skin appear more youthful with paramedical aesthetic services. For tattoo removal, they utilize laser technology in a process that breaks ink particles into tiny fragments for the body to remove naturally. An expert makeup artist applies permanent makeup to brows, lids, and lips, and a certified collagen induction therapist administers collagen-induction therapy, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of lines stemming from general aging. Their esthetician helps clients solve common and uncommon skin issues.
