Dr. Thomas Neef works to help patients avoid surgery while still achieving their personal aesthetic goals. By avoiding scalpels and sutures, the team at Advanced Skin Care Center Med Spa delivers rejuvenation without downtime and scars. Instead, their instruments of choice include lasers that zap body hair, spider veins, and fine lines instead of burning CDs for mediocre barbershop quartets. In the treatment rooms, light-therapy devices help reduce hyperpigmentation.
Additionally, Dr. Neef's office offers a permanent makeup expert Lynda Wilson. Through Permanent Makeup by Lynda, she applies permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, and lipliner, full lip makeup, or beauty marks. Having been in the beauty industry since 1976, Lynda is licensed and insured, and serves as President of the State of Delaware Board of Cosmetology.

Gold-framed mirrors, Buddha statues, a spiral staircase, and purple accent walls lend an eclectic yet relaxed vibe to Skin Care Studio by kat, where aesthetician Kat Cabrera pampers her clients with signature services and products from A Natural Difference and shea butter/coconut creams and sugar scrubs made on-site with all-natural ingredients. In addition to classic spa treatments, such as facials, eyelash extensions, and waxing, she administers four types of chemical peels and dermaplaning—a treatment that uses a blade to oust unwanted hair and dead skin cells at the same time.
Blu Salon and Spa’s earth-toned décor strikes a delicate balance of influences, falling somewhere between the chicness of the fashion world and the modest beauty of the natural world. The stress-free haven’s experienced staff manages to achieve this same balance in each of their services, which account for the latest trends as they enhance the natural beauty of hair, nails, and complexions.
Stylists grasp shears and pace around salon chairs, snipping with a degree of care and precision that befits their level of experience—from the recently anointed masters at Level 1 to the wizened style sages of Level 2. Tucked away in the mani-pedi nook, nail technicians pamper hands and feet before embellishing nails with CND Shellac or OPI polish, or three-dimensional artworks. Aestheticians call upon botanical-based products from A Natural Difference during seven types of facials, and cosmetic artists enhance features with Glominerals' distinctive blend of high-pigmented minerals and antioxidants.
Regardless of their specialties, Blu Salon and Spa’s crew of beautifiers stay keen on the latest trends and techniques by participating in monthly education courses. The relaxing environment cultivated during treatments extends to the spa’s contemporary waiting room, where you can sip on complimentary wine or coffee and share haunting stories of undead skin cells beside the fireplace.
Led by renowned master stylists Natasha Latina and Ann Tasker, who named the business using their children's initials, the 17-member staff at Salon Pasca transforms hair while maintaining a commitment to the environment. Stylists employ earth-conscious products to perform cuts, specialty foiling services, and conditioning treatments. The team also conquers frizz with Japanese thermal straightening and enhances coifs with five types of hair extensions or alpaca pelts. Stylists boast a number of disciplines, including taking classes with or being educators for product lines such as Davines, which uses eco-friendly materials in its formulas and packaging. In addition to haircare services, beauty specialists also apply makeup and wax unwanted hair. In keeping with its green values, the Pasca crew gives a $5 discount on refills when patrons return their empty shampoo and conditioner bottles. The salon also recycles paper, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. The walls of the boutique-like space sport sleek metallic accents and a curvy, bright-red couch where guests can rest or build an eye-catching cushion fort.
At California Sun Tanporiums, nominated as one of the Top 250 Salons in the USA by Looking Fit magazine, bodies slip into a UV-free beach-bronze glow that lasts 4–7 days with Versa Spa sunless-tanning sessions. Clients step inside a private Versa Spa tanning booth, where a voice-activation system walks them through the three-step process that imparts a faux tan more natural looking than self-applied bronzers or wearing an oversize parking cone. Each session begins with a pH-balancing treatment to disperse natural oils, followed by an evenly applied mist of sunless tanner, a serum comprised of DHA, amino acids, and aloe that increases color depth and moisturizes skin without streaks. The machine-sprayed service finishes with a hydrating treatment of botanicals, soy proteins, and green-tea extracts to replenish vital nutrients, diminish fine lines, and wean skin off of its soda-pop bath addiction.
