A medical spa and salon opening in Jeffersonville will be focusing on bringing out beauty through technology, including with a super cool (literally) therapy.
An area psychiatrist, Assad Ismail, and his wife, Samia Asad, are the pair behind Perfect Ten Rejuvenation Salon & Spa at 320 Gordman Gutmann Blvd. Customers can get a sneak peek of the business at an open house on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., complete with food, tea, complimentary services and special offers.
In addition to the usual services (hair, nails, make-up, waxing, massage), Perfect Ten offers alternative therapies, including cool sculpting, which uses a machine to target fat cells with cold, as well as an ion foot detox, which is supposed to pull toxins out of the body with ionized water.
Customers can also use a cryotherapy machine. Clients stand in the device, which plunges to temperatures below negative 100 degrees Fahrenheit for just three minutes. Perfect Ten advertises that the therapy can help you burn calories, although it’s not FDA approved to do so.
Perfect Ten’s therapies are technology driven, said Faith Yascone, a co-owner of Yascone Enterprises in Louisville, which is representing Ismali and Asad.
“We are going to try and focus on non-invasive procedures where you can get back to work immediately and feel like, you know, you got something done,” Yascone said.
She’s tried out the cryotherapy machine and said that it gave her some extra energy. She lost some weight, too, although she’s not sure if it was because of the device.
Perfect Ten is also supposed to be a one-stop shop where customers can get multiple beauty needs addressed. In addition to the services already mentioned, the spa will offer botox and fillers, PDO threads, HydraFacials, dermaplaning, laser treatments, eyebrow threading, eyelash extensions, spray tanning, acupuncture and teeth whitening.
Appointments will primarily be done through scheduling.
Ismail and Asad have completely renovated the building their spa will be in. “It’s a beautiful space,” Yascone said.
