Certified laser specialist Pamela Archer is a staunch believer in the manifold power of lasers, employing their beams to rid bodies of hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and fungus at BARELaser clinic. Her arsenal of Quanta lasers covers a wide range of wavelengths to address the needs of patients of all skin types and ham-radio-station preferences. The center's team of registered nurses conquers issues unreachable by lasers through skin-smoothing injections of Botox or dermal fillers.
Skin issues come to Therapy World to say their goodbyes. Under the care of Dr. Terry Grossman, the medspa's staff of medical aestheticians provides effective healing and anti-aging therapies to help skin look its best—and to help clients feel their best. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the team starts each new patient relationship with individualized care. That begins with a consultation during which skin issues and current skincare regimens are examined. Then, based on the patient's goals, corrective skin procedures are recommended, such as facial peels or microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning, threading, and reiki also comprise the long list of helpful treatments the center is known for, each contributing their own benefits to overall patient well being.
The skincare professionals at Sugar Spot know you love your skin, so they cover it in curative botanical mud. During the Moor mud wrap, they smother the body in 100% organic peet-bog mud to remove toxins, tighten the skin, and treat back acne. The staff uses ingredients such as mineral salt to smooth rough areas and lactic acid to soften fine lines. They correct sun spots with a brightening agent, and at the end of conditioning treatments, they apply masks to restore moisture and protect skin from irritants and wild cream pies. They also slough away dead skin cells with chemical peels, which leave a clean surface for glo minerals makeup.
Aesthetician Julia Hodson knows her away around her clients' skin because of years of training and an intimate understanding of human physiology. In her studio, she performs four distinct facials and one back treatment—which couple with other services, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning—to leave epidermises glowing. She also helps strip away unwanted hair with waxing services, and fill out areas where hair is desired with eyelash extensions.
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
The sun shines year-round at Tropical Tans, where a staff strives to give clients natural-looking color. After learning a guest’s envisioned results, the staff pairs them with a tanning bed in one of three levels or prescribes airbrush spray tanning, a UV-free formula that coin collectors often use to make their pennies more appealing and fresh-looking to buyers.
