At SkinTherapy, LLC, aesthetician Marly Sexton draws upon more than 12 years of experience to combat skin issues with custom facials that blend exfoliation, massage, steam treatments, and extractions. To keep skin looking its best all year long, many facial ingredients change with the seasons and could include everything from an autumn spice mask to blueberry enzymes and more. But above all, Marly's mission is to tailor each treatment to the client's skin type and concerns, which is why she begins every service with a thorough skin analysis.

Free Spirit Skincare owner Rene' Halstead started out as a nail technician before earning a master's certification through Creative Nail Design for acrylic application.

Halstead is licensed in cosmetic and body tattooing, specializing in permanent-makeup application, and—having trained at the renowned Gauntlet body-jewelry mecca in San Francisco—is certified to pierce earlobes or navels while seated atop a skirted horse. She stays ahead of industry trends with ongoing education through the International Dermal Institute and the American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics.
The aestheticians and physicians at Silk Touch Skin & Laser don’t take a one-laser-fits-all approach to skincare. Rather, they use the specific laser that works best for each procedure. During virtually pain-free treatments, Alma lasers permanently reduce undesirable hair, whereas a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser breaks up the inky pigments of unwanted tattoos and pet-squid hugs. With its Pixel Perfect laser, the Silk Touch team smoothes acne scars, diminishes sun damage, and eradicates wrinkles and fine lines. As an alternative to these laser treatments, guests can choose to undergo chemical peels, which remove damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a smoother layer of skin underneath.
