Staff members at A Touch of Beauty Salon and Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with treatments ranging from modern haircuts to essential-oil-infused pedicures. During hair services, stylists revamp coifs with haircuts and braided cornrows, and brighten tresses with all-over color or highlights. They also adorn locks with sew-in extensions, quick weaves, and custom-made wigs, ideal for adding instant glamour or thoroughly confusing the mailman. On the spa end of services, technicians customize facials to each client’s skin type. Body scrubs and wraps infused with African shea butter moisturize the skin, and manicures and pedicures pair with paraffin dips and peppermint oil to soften paws.
At Walker Dermatology Center, Dr. Earl A. Walker works with a licensed aesthetician to address skin concerns with clinical expertise. He provides injections of wrinkle-smoothing substances such as Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane as well as laser treatments to remove tattoos of yesterday's grocery list. A nurse practitioner provides laser treatments for the removal of unwanted hair.
In addition, their aesthetician uses medical-grade skin-care products to clarify and tone complexions during facials and chemical peels. Her services don’t end with application of products, however: she also takes the time to talk to her clients about healthy skincare habits, prioritizing simple strategies for clear skin over training a flock of bluebirds to apply your morning moisturizer.
A multispecialty clinic, Gahanna Vision Center delivers quality eye care and fits patients with stylish frames by designers such as Ray-Ban and Nike. A customized i.Scription visual analysis helps craft a more perfect lens by meticulously mapping the eye and sussing out each orb’s unique aberrations and responsiveness to made-up colors, like octarine. This innovative technology may improve perception of colors, distinction of contrasts, and low-light vision. The facility's lifestyle eye exam thoroughly audits socket-dwellers, and features optional custom tests for dry eyes, cataracts, and glaucoma.
When Erica Vicens’s mother, Gloria, came home one day with permanent eyeliner, Erica fell in love with the dramatic look. But she was only seven years old, and had to wait many years before getting the procedure herself. When Erica finally traded in her eyeliner pencil for good, she also signed up for a training class to learn how to apply permanent makeup on her own. “The first time I took the training class, knew that was it,” Erica said. She was just as enchanted with the process as she had been with the results.
