Electrologist Louise Chaffins pours more than 20 years of experience into Bluegrass Electrolysis and Laser Clinic, where she oversees a friendly staff of capable technicians. Louise and her comrades clear bodies of unwanted hair with electrolysis and laser hair-removal procedures, and they spruce up visages plagued by wrinkles and Rorschach inkblot-shaped age spots with noninvasive facial services such as microcurrent facial toning and infrared light therapy. A complimentary consultation precedes each treatment, ensuring clients receive plans tailored to their individual needs.
Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, and registered nurses who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
The medical professionals at Allure Aesthetic Associates help clients reveal their true beauty with a collection of nonsurgical skin treatments. From wrinkle fighting to hair removal, the med spa's procedures boost confidence levels via lasers and minimally invasive injections—not scalpels. The doctor guides patients on journeys to weight loss, while the aesthetic nurse specialist brings an extensive nursing background to rejuvenating treatments and spirited games of Trivial Pursuit.
Though its name might suggest otherwise, Miracle Eyebrows works its magic on more than just one body part. But when it comes to eyebrows, staffers use a 6,000 year-old method to remove stray hairs by deftly manipulating simple cotton thread across the skin. Aside from threading, the studio also offers body waxing and traditional Henna tattoos.
Clique Waxing Boutique focuses almost exclusively on body waxing. The boutique's aestheticians perform several hundred Brazilian waxes each week—some completed in as little as 15 minutes—with either traditional strip wax or sensitive hard wax. For especially delicate areas, a dollop of Relax & Wax No Scream Cream dulls pain sensors and subdues hairs before they weave themselves into an organized protest. New clients are encouraged to review Clique's waxing etiquette.
On faces, the boutique's crew uproots fringe via traditional Indian threading techniques or the Anastasia brow-shaping system from Los Angeles, which includes a series of measurements that help technicians taper brows to the most face-flattering shapes, such as circles or lightning bolts.
The studio's Bohemian-style décor—with vintage furnishings, framed art, a chandelier, and ornately framed mirrors—carries over into a retail space, where guests can peruse products including paraben-free makeup and lavender-mint Dead Sea–salt scrubs from gloMinerals.
When The Electrolysis Centre and Epicure joined forces to form SimplySmooth, the merger brought together staff members with decades of hair-removal experience. Visitors can choose from a variety of depilation techniques, including laser hair removal, body sugaring, and electrolysis, depending on what they and their hair believe is best. The staff also administers microdermabrasion treatments to refresh faces and remove fine lines.
