The tanning beds at Kissed by the Sun shine year-round in spite of chilly, snowy, or rainy Pittsburgh forecasts. Level one, two, and three beds house between 54 and 60 bulbs, which cover the entire body in a bronzing glow. Clients can augment their newly acquired color by donning Jwoww Black Bronzer and Bronze Mineral Legs, or by squeezing into bronzed shoes from their childhoods. After regular service hours, the salon opens its doors to bachelorette parties, sororities, prom groups, and social clubs that want to tan in tandem.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
Lead by Dr. George Cherian, the team of certified technicians at Ivagio Laser Spa wield lasers and customize spa treatments to improve overall health and beauty. With those lasers they remove hair and diminish the appearance of all kinds of blemishes, including acne scars, stretch marks, age spots, and wrinkles. Their list of more than 15 treatments also includes laserless procedures such as Botox injections and ion-detox foot sessions that purge the body of environmental toxins.
The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
FDA-registered Million Dollar Smile restores whiteness to shop-worn smiles during tandem treatments with a dental-grade carbamide-peroxide formula and select wavelengths of LED lights. Using specially designed mouth trays, treatments neutralize discoloration on both the upper and lower teeth. The 16% concentration of hydrogen-peroxide based whitening solution works its whitening magic free of gluten, fluoride, or alcohol, and the shortened exposure to LED lights lightens teeth without softening enamel or disrupting molars’ circadian rhythms.
Laser technician Anna Hilborn helms Opal Rose, which is located within the McDowell Shops. Here, she aims to resolve problematic skin expediently and safely. Stubborn acne is controlled when met with advanced laser treatments. Lasers also gently remove unwanted body hair while entertaining clients with light shows set to the Eagles.
