Aesthetically Speaking
How the right treatments will have you looking and feeling your best

by Staff

Given the grind of our daily lives, we could all use a little pampering now and then. So we talked with some local experts who offer a variety of ways to treat yourself and asked them about some of the ways they are helping clients feel as good as they look. Here they share their insight on how to make the most of your next visit.

How do you make each client feel comfortable and cared for while individualizing their service?
“I promote luxury, and I try to give everyone a great experience from beginning to end. I offer wine with my services as long as you’re of age. I use a setting powder to make everyone feel a bit more comfortable when it comes to their spray tans being less tacky; it’s also an odor neutralizer and absorbs any moisture so people feel a bit more comfortable in their skin when they’re letting their spray tan process. … I sit down and I ask each person what they think their underlying colors are in their skin, whether they pull more pink, whether they are more olive, yellow, and then we go from there to determine how dark or light they would like to be.”
Alex Webb, owner
Shadow Luxury Spray Tan Lounge

What kind of services do you recommend for delivering the longest-lasting and most effective results?
“At least a seasonal facial, which might or might not include a chemical peel or a microdermabrasion—those types of things are so amazing, we’re seeing such an incredible difference in the skin. Microcurrent is something we also offer and is a way to stay ahead of aging. It will naturally tone and tighten muscle structure, so it’s like a facelift, but that takes dedication and a commitment to getting it done every four to 12 weeks. All that, plus my signature 90-minute facial, takes care of everything your skin needs.”
Biba Vernon, owner
Beauty By Biba Salon & Spa

What is the most effective and long-lasting treatment you offer that is currently trending? 
“Waking up with permanent makeup is a life-changing alternative for busy women! It’s time-saving and confidence-building, when professionally applied. It will fade over time and require color-refreshing every one to four years, depending on the depth of color, skin type, exposure, and skin-care regiment. Additional major benefits are freedom in knowing your makeup stays in place while at the gym, beach or a night out dancing. You can sweat and even cry at the movies!”
Rose Marie Beauchemin-Verzella, founder, Beau Institute

“Facial fillers are our most popular treatment as they offer an immediate and visible transformation to the face without the need for invasive procedures. Additionally, they provide natural-looking results, enhance facial features and restore lost volume. Skilled injectors have a comprehensive understanding of filler products and precise facial anatomy, ensuring safe and satisfactory results. Our patients seek fillers as they offer a minimally invasive method for facial rejuvenation without significant downtime, making them an attractive option.
