Although stylist Megan Pelfrey shares her expertise with future stylists as a beauty instructor, her skills really shine at Salon 909. Here, she draws on her training at Paul Mitchell School when performing designer cuts, Aveda color treatments, and hair extensions. As a cosmetologist, her talents surpass hair alone; she also cleans out pores with facials and clears away unwanted hair with waxing.
A comprehensive salon and day spa offering hair, nail, massage, facial, waxing, and makeup services since 1983, Frederick's provides a peaceful escape from everyday stresses. Before being called into a private treatment room for the 60-minute couple's massage, lovebirds can snuggle up on a black leather sofa and absorb the cozy warmth pulsing from a flickering stone fireplace. Relaxation levels are magnified during the joint Swedish knead, during which partners lounge on side-by-side massage tables as skilled therapists employ gentle, soothing strokes to evict tension, untangle muscular knots, and boost circulation without disturbing sleeping belly buttons.
In addition to offering routine care in the form of physicals, lab tests, and immunizations, the practitioners at Jefferson Medspa also help their patients look their best with medical weight-loss programs and wrinkle-reducing injections. Led by board-certified internist Dr. Safa Osman, this team takes a proactive approach to health and wellness by preaching a message of disease prevention through good nutrition and complementary alternative therapies. The clinic also touts med-spa services such as laser hair removal, Botox, and Juvéderm.
Amid taupe and lavender walls, Studio 11 Salon and Day Spa's staffers groom physiques head to toe with a suite of pampering services. Licensed aestheticians perform a dozen facial treatments, dousing skin in rejuvenating products to help to remedy fine lines, uneven or dull skin tone, and ill-timed lycanthropy. Nail technicians meticulously trim and shape talons, and hairstylists diligently shampoo tresses at salon stations as clients crane their necks to spot the Magic-Eye picture hidden in a nearby oriental rug.
The licensed professionals at Secret Serenity oversee and administer expert skin enhancements from within a soothing, relaxed spa atmosphere for both men and women. Medical director Dr. Troy Balgo has practiced in Clairsville for the past 12 years, and Serenity's four-session laser hair-removal treatment can annex arms and legs away from unwanted embankments of rebellious skin reeds.
Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.
