Dawna Brisebois of Pioneer Valley Electrolysis debunks the myth that all hair-removal techniques are created equal. Plucking, tweezing, and waxing can cause hair to grow back even thicker than before, and lasers only target dark pigments—these methods may be less effective on blonde, grey, and red hair colors. But electrolysis puts an end to unwanted hair. The precise treatment targets each individual follicle with a quick pulse of energy that puts an end to regrowth, and is safe and effective for all skin and hair types.
La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center?s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Thermilift, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin?s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique?s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.

The term "cyber hair" might conjure up images of CGI locks, but the material is actually an incredibly lifelike hair substitute that acts like normal hair. It's among the many options hair professionals and staff at Ambiance HR and Laser Center give clients seeking a nonsurgical means of treating hair loss. In addition to its hair-cultivating prowess, the team uses laser technology to eradicate unwanted fuzz, age spots, acne scars, spider veins, and bank-vault locks. Ambiance’s aestheticians also offer laser-aided facials and rejuvenating chemical peels, along with old-fashioned hot-stone facials.
Skin Therapy owner Stacy Beaudoin only opens her spa on evenings and weekends, but during that time, she's laser focused on pampering her clients' skin and nails. As a licensed electrologist, she can remove unwanted hair permanently with electrolysis. Alternatively, she can wax away body hair, using heat-sterilized tweezers and a fresh stick for every application. She also nourishes and rehydrates skin with Bioelements facials and peels and beautifies nails with eco-friendly polish during indulgent mani-pedis.
At Amherst Laser and Skin Care Center, aesthetic treatments go beyond ordinary waxing treatments and cleansing facials. Along with these basic offerings, Dr. Robert Weitzman and his dedicated staff use state-of-the-art lasers for a number of treatments, from banishing unwanted hair to spurring hair growth with a futuristic iGrow laser helmet. Other laser treatments include skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and tattoo removal.
Aestheticians also incorporate natural and holistic elements into a number of treatments designed to nourish the skin and help maintain a refreshed, youthful appearance. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a DiamondTome wand helps remove dead skin cells. The process can promote new skin cell growth and stimulate collagen while treating fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
Those seeking slimming services need look no further than the studio's Lipo Light Pro, which targets localized areas of fat with the power of LED light. In addition to body contouring, the beauty experts at Gentle Touch CT zap unwanted follicles with carefully calibrated jolts of electrical current, causing them to close up shop and stop producing hair after a series of sessions. They treat common areas such as the upper lip, underarms, or tops of the feet and perform their services within the confines of a private, comfortable office. Gentle Touch CT also offers facial-rejuvenation treatments that are safe for all skin types.
