Steve and Kim Weiner take pride in their ability to mesh medical-grade wellness treatments with a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The co-owners began their careers as an aesthetic equipment salesman and a paramedical aesthetician respectively, giving them extensive professional insight into the role that technology can play in rejuvenating clients’ appearances. Their spa embraces some of these technologically based treatments, including infrared body wraps, teeth whitening and hair removal with cosmetic laser systems, and lipotron skin-tightening sessions, which use radio frequencies to firm skin tone and broadcast warning messages to crow’s-feet. The center also offers basic spa treatments, such as massages and deep-cleansing facials.
Adhering to the spa-wide belief that natural ingredients and noninvasive treatments yield the best results in skincare, Velvet Day Spa pampers clients with a variety of services—ranging from facials to spray tanning—done with organic products. The skilled aestheticians also use their advanced industry experience to pamper clients with modern techniques and procedures including permanent-makeup applications, nonsurgical face-lifts, and microdermabrasions. Soon after opening the spa in 2007, owner Jeanette Ryan created an organic line of products called Velvet Skincare, which is counterintuitively not designed for people with textile skin.
Lavender Medical & Beauty Spa is a comprehensive nexus of beauty and well-being where facials, massage, and injectables meet nail- and haircare. Spray tanning and teeth whitening ensure that no cosmetic stone is left unturned, and specialty services introduce bodies to ancient, oft unheard-of treatments, such as a Russian banya—a detoxifying, herb-infused sauna designed to open the pores and their mail while ridding bodies of excess salt and lactic acid. Sound-therapy pedicure chairs use a vibrational flow of music to massage backs and lull tired tendons to sleep as whirlpools maintained according to strict hygiene policies swaddle and soften hard-working feet.
Kristin Edwards represents a cosmetological double-threat: she carries certifications in both electrolysis and aesthetics. This means not only can she render skin permanently smooth and fuzz-free with her signature electrolysis treatments, but she can also unfold fine lines and dissipate dermal blemishes with anti-aging ultrasonic facials and dermaplaning treatments. Clients not ready for electrolysis can opt for Kristin's other hair-removal techniques: tried and true waxing, or sneezing so hard that your armpit hair falls off.
At Lanata Advanced Skin Care, owner Amie Hawks and her staff of aestheticians refuse to use synthetic products that—in Amie’s experience—only exacerbate skin problems. Instead, they rely on eco-friendly products and progressive technologies, helping clients maintain youthful-looking skin by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and other proteins and chemicals designed by the cells’ teams of tiny scientists.
Nerve damage brought on by chemotherapy almost took away one man's independence. Worried about his body's mobility, he sought healing in an unlikely place: the infrared portion of the light spectrum. Infrared-light therapy gave him back his health and mobility, inspiring him to open a clinic where others could bask in the healing aura of this drug-free treatment.
Nu Light Therapy is also home to noninvasive aesthetic therapies such as microcurrent stimulation, designed to tone the face and body. Vinyasa-yoga classes exercise the core and leave the mind more balanced than identical twins on a teeter-totter.
