Helen Charles Salon London's bronzing aestheticians gild sun-parched outermost organs with a safe, UV-free spray tan that fades naturally. Using an organic solution, detailing doyens mist each skin suit from head to toe, leaving pallid patrons with a natural-looking hue that's more radiant than a snowman with a tinfoil jacket. The 30-minute session is done by hand rather than by a machine, giving clients a human soundboard to serenade with show tunes, as well as a custom, thoroughly blended finish. Helen Charles Salon London offers a clean and composed environment for dermal painting. Rich wall colors and contemporary artwork contribute to the calming atmosphere.

Under the supervision of a physician, the technicians at Sunrise Laser & Hormone Institute beautify bodies with a variety of noninvasive, high-tech services. They remove hair from virtually any skin type with the Alma Soprano laser, whose cooling mechanism keeps skin surfaces so comfortable that many patients compare the treatment to a hot-stone massage. To reduce sagging skin, the Alma Soprano also uses true laser technology to tighten skin in the arms, neck, face, and stomach. To reduce cellulite and wrinkles caused by attempting to spell kohlrabi, staff members call on the radio frequency and magnetic pulses of non-invasive systems. Their service menu also includes laser body-slimming treatments and bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, along with body contouring, chemical peels, and facials.

As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn’t come easily.

Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog’s favorite chair.
