The husband and wife team of Leon and Barbara Prete helm Anti-Aging Centers staff, who have spent more than 10 years shining bodies with noninvasive beams during laser treatments. Equipped with the brand-new Lipo-Light Pro and more Candela lasers than a hoarding supervillain, the aestheticians target hair, skin imperfections, and unwanted fat. Their skin-resurfacing sublative treatment, on the other hand, swaps lasers out for bipolar radio frequencies that delve deep into the skin to help treat wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and other issues. The technology-based treatments combine with classic spa services, including massage, and holistic services, such as ear candling. Prior to each aesthetic or medical treatment, staff conducts consultations, during which clients can warm their hands and shivering finger puppets around cups of complimentary tea as they forge a customized treatment plan.

If a still pond glimmering in the orange glow of a sunset could be translated into how a person feels, that's the kind of feeling salon owner Dawn Poindexter would want clients to have as they leave her salon. To achieve just such a sense of beauty and relaxation for her guests, expert stylists customize their services to each individual's needs, using use high-end products such as Goldwell for everything from styling and subtle highlights to more complex undertakings like smoothing hair with keratin or smoothing an astronaut's hair in a zero-gravity environment.

A certain hominess shines through at JoBella Salon and Spa. The shop is named for the co-owner’s children, Joe and Bella, and the Branford location is nestled inside a two-story house surrounded by trees and green grass. Skilled stylists and aestheticians at both locations tap into an arsenal of elixirs from Arrojo and skincare products by Aveda. When they aren't beautifying clients from the neck up, they primp nails, knead sinews, and leave legs wrapped in seaweed like a sleeping sushi chef.
