Seasoned aesthetician Linda Hoff eschews drug-assisted treatments for all-natural, holistic wellness techniques. Drawing on years of experience, Hoff tackles chronic skin, body, and beauty conditions with services that target an extensive array of ailments. A half dozen different facials treat everything from rosacea and eczema to wrinkles and dryness. The all-natural body-sugaring process rids brows and limbs of unwanted hair and attracts smooches from puppies with low blood sugar.
As a licensed aesthetician with more than 16 years of experience, Medical Aesthetics RX's founder, Nettie, performs what she considers to be results-oriented treatment regimens. These treatments range from diamond-tip microdermabrasion and facials with fruit enzymes to photo-rejuvenation treatments, but they are all focused on creating a dramatic change in her clients' outer appearance. Skincare treatments enable Nettie to help create younger-looking complexions by reducing the appearance of age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles shaped like bird feet.
The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of blemishes and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Consultations precede each treatment, during which skin specialists select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and blemishes from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Revive treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and eye and lip treatments.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace where stressed guests can burn incriminating documents. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
These amenities set the stage for classic spa treatments such as a massage with heated and ice-cooled river stones or a seaweed body wrap. Incorporating the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, the salon transforms appearances with designer cuts and Platinum Seamless hair extensions as well as nail services that draw on hot stones, paraffin treatments, and essential oils.
Hair-removing lasers and dermal fillers populate the list of cosmetic services offered at Clayton Med Spa. The center's skilled technicians and aestheticians bid dullness adieu with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, skin-rejuvenating photofacials, and other treatments that target the face and body. Those hoping to correct sagging skin sans surgery can receive noninvasive skin-tightening treatments, which use infrared light, magnetic pulses, and bipolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production. Injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane help fill in fine lines caused by aging or falling asleep atop a subway grate.
