The spa treatments at Lily Laser and Beauty have a far-reaching eclecticism. Take, for instance, the 4G facial. Using lasers, this 20-minute treatment can diminish break outs and firm skin. Lily's technicians also enlist lasers—Soprano machines, to be exact—to remove unwanted hair. Compared to other laser systems, the Soprano causes a low level of discomfort, thanks in particular to the DualChill tool that keeps the skin cool. But it still removes unwanted hair quickly and thoroughly. In addition to laser-powered treatments, beautifiers can also perform massage and waxing with a soy-based product, ultherapy, botox, filler, and professional teeth whitening.
Jack Gann boasts more than 25 years in the massage industry and specializes in Esalen massage. This style combines passive joint exercises, deep structural work, and a gentle rocking of the body to bring it back into alignment. Aside from alleviating aches, this treatment has been known to energize and balance the body, and is decidedly more effective that simply giving clients some coffee and asking them to hold a sack of bricks with one hand.

While rushing out the door and trying to look after three kids in the process, Marcia V. Williams didn't realize until long after she had left the house that she had only managed to apply eyeshadow to one eye. It was such experiences that led her to found Embellish Beauty Concepts, LLC, where she makes it her goal to help other busy women always look beautiful and master the art of multi-tasking amid a hectic schedule. Working mainly with women for special events, Williams wields her knowledge and certifications in makeup application, hair styling, and synthetic-eyelash application to prepare ladies for weddings, nights on the town, or nights on the couch pretending the TV can see you back.
When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
A graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy, owner and operator Lauren Nelson leads a team of three other muscle therapists, Amy, Brendan, and Linda, as they turn down tension levels and subdue stress at Touch of Health Massage Therapy.
