- Braintasia mind massage and foot reflexology session: Over the course of 45–60 minutes, a descriptive audio guide evokes calming imagery. Meanwhile, a massage therapist kneads pressure points on the soles selected to ease tension throughout the body.
- C+ Vitality Facial: This 45- to 60-minute session starts with skin analysis. Based on the results, the aesthetician sets to work cleansing and toning. A vitamin C–based peel sloughs off dead outer cells before a brightening mask and moisturizer and a Vital C serum bathe skin in the nutrient that’s famed for fading light-brown spots while stimulating collagen production.
- Microdermabrasion: This intensive exfoliation method is used to fade fine lines and discoloration. A series of four to eight treatments is generally recommended for the most dramatic results.<p>
Lyn Ross wrote the book on skincare. Or at least one or two of the books, cumulatively. She's authored numerous articles and textbook chapters on the topic, spreading the knowledge she's gained since opening her first natural skincare clinic in 1975, when most dermatologists still advised moisturizing with a rich crude-oil blend. In 1989, she established Institut’ DERMed—at once an Atlanta med-spa, a line of cosmeceutical products, and an aesthetician-training center.
Today, Ross and her staff make clients’ skin glow in a 3,000-square-foot facility filled with 11 private treatment rooms. At the College of Advanced Aesthetics, also headquartered in Atlanta, they train estheticians, cosmetologists, and doctors in product use and skin-treatment plans. Perhaps the element most central to Lyn's practice is her range of natural skin-care products crafted from concentrated but non-prescription active ingredients. The cleansers, serums, and exfoliants are formulated not just with carefully selected ingredients, but with carefully selected molecules—the company’s chemists reconfigure the very atoms of active substances so that the compounds will better penetrate the skin.
