“How can we make you feel beautiful today?” is the tag line of Zero Gravity Med Spa, an aesthetics business located at 747 Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs.
The spa was opened in June 2016 by three women—Megan Gallo, Candace Reusch and Jennifer Crane. Gallo is a family nurse practitioner certified in the administration of Botox and fillers. She has also been trained and certified in laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation and acne removal. Reusch and Crane are both registered nurses with certification in the administration of Botox and fillers.
According to Gallo, the spa, which they started with their own money, was profitable the first month it existed.
Gallo says that, as a medical spa, the spa’s intent is to make clients look better using both aesthetic and medical techniques. Services the one-stop spa offers include Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma to dewrinkle, lift and volumize; eyelash extensions to increase length and volume; personalized spray tan to add tint and glow; and laser hair removal in many different areas. Topical numbing, rather than anesthesia, is available. In addition, the spa offers body contouring, facials, chemical peels and even concierge services where the aestheticians visit clients at home.
Gallo says that the spa is one-of-a-kind in the area attracting approximately 40 new clients each month. The spa serves between 300 to 500 clients monthly and the average age range of the clients is anywhere from 30 to 45, though they also have patrons up to age 65. Eyelash extensions and Botox injections are the most requested procedures.
Gallo says, “Most clients are extremely happy. Some of them cry.” Gallo, who has three children ages 4, 7 and 11, averages 60 hours per week at the spa. A five-year plan details an expansion in neighborhoods such as West Chester and Hyde Park in Ohio. In addition, Gallo says they would like to increase services.
One satisfied client is Erin Maley, 37, from Edgewood. An English teacher from Scott High School in Kenton County, she learned that some of her friends went to the spa to have their lashes extended. Maley came in for a lash extension and has returned regularly. “I know people who have different experiences at other spas, but this has the best reputation in the area,” she says.
Inside the 1,600-square-feet spa is a pleasant lobby with a reception area and three rooms for procedures. Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
