Comfort is key at Waxing Mania, which is why the certified and licensed aestheticians only slather skin with organic hard wax during hair-removal services. This method is said to leave less residue than soft wax and is reportedly much less painful than duct tape. The techs also put clients at ease by maintaining a high level of cleanliness—including a strict no double-dipping policy—and keeping most appointment times under 30 minutes. All sessions are held behind closed doors in private treatment rooms, where soothing music and neutral décor create a peaceful ambiance.
The Fountain Laser Hair Removal's staff brings years of laser-helming experience to the relaxing, spa-like environment. Laser hair removal treatments banish unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, arms, and a plethora of other areas. Lasers emit light energy, damaging targeted hair follicles and resulting is reduced hair growth. The treatments work on all skin types, though results vary based on complexion and hair pigment.
The skilled technicians at the center also help shape bodies into model figurines with laser-lipo treatments. Using advanced technology a laser is carefully applied directly to the skin during sessions to assist fat cells in opening up and releasing their lipid content. Laser sessions mimic the same actions seen in exercising, creating an overall effect of a more toned and sculpted body. Sessions may also aid in skin shrinkage, overall inch loss, and targeting problem areas such as love handles or double-chins.
Most days upon leaving class at the International School of Skin and Nailcare, Kristen Axton headed straight to her job at Kiehl's. This combination of formal training and on-the-job experience helped develop her aesthetic expertise, which she further refined while working at several med spas throughout Atlanta. Today, as owner of Kristen's Skin Care & Massage, she commands a team of massage therapists and aestheticians dedicated to beautifying and de-stressing clients. Their signature Atlanta facial restores vim and vigor to lagging faces with a multi-step regimen that includes peels derived from herbal enzymes or therapeutic acids. Aestheticians also slough away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion sessions designed to lessen scarring from acne, sun damage, and general wear and tear. Elsewhere in the shop, massage therapists unravel kinked muscles with techniques borrowed from Swedish and neuromuscular specialties.
The licensed aestheticians at Defined Sugaring Studio know that sugar doesn't just make chocolate cakes delicious and cardboard cakes palatable, it also removes unwanted hair more efficiently than wax. That's because its blend of all-natural lemon, water, and sugar grips hair shafts while never sticking to skin, allowing estheticians to clear away strands with less irritation. The esthetician further protects the skin with multi-purpose Hungarian hydrating mud, which soothes with anti-inflammatory ingredients for a rejuvenating treatment that clears away stored toxins and optionally helps with ingrown hairs.
