In Greek, the word kalos means having both inner and outer beauty; it’s with this goal that the aestheticians at Kalos Body and Mind approach each of their treatments. They erase signs of aging with anti-wrinkle serums and electrical currents—the latter of which helps kill acne-causing bacteria and tightens facial muscles. To soothe the mind, however, they augment these clinical formulas with the calming benefits of oatmeal scrubs, rose-petal moisturizers, and milk-and-honey masks.
First-born children generally grow up to be mature and compassionate adults, which is certainly the case with licensed massage therapist Carissa Franco. Her empathy became apparent at age 15 when she opted to start working at a family center that helped low-income parents and their children. She soon discovered that administering massage therapy, unlike sending a hug through the mail, gave her the satisfaction of seeing the immediate positive effects of her efforts. Now, when practicing therapies including Swedish massage, lymphatic drainage, and reflexology, Carissa also treats clients with doTerra essential oil, which greases the wheels of relaxation without pesticides or other contaminants.
Experienced aesthetician Janice Norris bolsters languishing countenances against aging and the environment. The microcurrent facial begins with a cleanse and exfoliation before the hand-held NuFace device gently dances over the face, emitting low-level electrotherapeutic pulses that strengthen underlying facial muscles and determine whether or not your cheeks are filled with gold coins. The procedure ends with an application of moisturizer, which will be selected based on your skin type from Janice’s professional-grade stock.
The experienced stylists at Lovely Nails and Hair Salon beautify clients under the knowledgeable direction of owner Crystal Chau, who boasts more than 20 years of salon experience. When she isn't supervising haircuts, perms, and facial waxes, Crystal skillfully applies permanent makeup to lips and eyelids to produce more vivid facial expressions. Seven spa pedicure chairs and six nail stations set the stage for keratin coloring as guests take in the salon’s bright red, yellow, purple, and pink walls decorated with colorful artwork and shelves stocked with products from brands such as OPI and Redken.
The stylists at Salon Shear Obsession believe in shaping styles to fit each client's facial shape while striking the perfect balance between their profession and their wildest hair fantasies. Each custom cut is textured for natural movement, without the hard lines that indicate one-size-fits-all styles or adherence to the square-hat fad. Similarly, color treatments aim to mimic natural hues or the gentle streaking of the sun.
Founder Lisa Gelinas and medical head Dr. Claude Gelinas lead G’ Med Spa's staff in wielding high-tech, nonsurgical instruments during treatments that help clients achieve their aesthetic goals. The minimally invasive BellaMicro system can exfoliate and resurface skin through beams of microcrystals that bribe the body to produce fresh skin. Noninvasive lasers move in to tighten wrinkled surfaces as well as slough off unwanted hair. Additionally, the medical pros consult with patients to craft personalized plans that can leave clients feeling as self-confident as a karate master fighting a cardboard butterfly.
