Whether it’s to help prepare for an interview, an upcoming wedding, or a date with a scrupulous dermatologist, the aestheticians at Lux Skin and Makeup Studio work to get skin looking its very best with facials, waxing sessions, makeup services, and eyelash extensions. Using doctor-developed Murad products, the team aims to heal epidermal ailments such as redness, wrinkles, and acne with a sextet of facials, which includes a clarifying enzyme acne facial and a vitamin C facial, or a PCA peel. Aestheticians can then add prismatic pop to newly smoothened skin with professional makeup applications performed with high-end products from The Balm, Japonesque, and Julie Hewett. To keep legs and arms smooth, they remove unwanted hair using warm wax and quick removal techniques that minimize discomfort.
The licensed, board-certified doctors at Alaska Vein Care vanquish spider veins and enlarged, bulging varicose veins with FDA-approved treatments. Injections of a sclerosing agent seal the interior lining of spider veins, diminishing their appearance by blocking blood flow. Treatments for varicose veins include EVLT treatments to restore normal circulation, micro-phlebectomy procedures to remove looped veins, and sclerotherapy, which closes vein walls.
The Body Cafe's aestheticians put PCA skincare products to work vivifying the epidermises of clients during facials. The signature facial cleans, hydrates, and nourishes nose, mouth, and eye holders, leaving the visage subtly illuminated and healthier. Three separate peel processes provide chemically driven pulchritude after dead skin politely excuses itself from the face, and a detox deep-pore treatment incorporates all-natural ingredients to thoroughly cleanse microscopic skin oil fields. The TCA ultra peel, alternatively, employs the trichloroacetic acid found in PCA skin products to renew countenances in a more work-appropriate manner than getting a facial tattoo that mocks a boss's inability to discuss current events in Latin.
At Tan Alaska, four different levels of tanning beds wait ready to bronze the skin of patient tanners. Specialized tanning lotions aid in this process, some with ingredients of caffeine, or hemp. Meanwhile, spray tans eschew the sun for quick, easy tanning, while hot tubs await, water bubbling, for relaxing jaunts away from the harsh colds of winter.
Licensed massage therapist Torey Mathews sends calming ripples across muscle ponds during customizable massages. During sessions, Torey unleashes a choice of relaxing or therapeutic strokes that whittle down tension while minimizing aches from sports injuries, pregnancy, or sleeping on a walnut. Each session can be scheduled on the easy-to-follow online interface, which allows patrons to book appointments Monday–Saturday.
After working for two decades in pharmaceutical sales, lifelong animal lover Maggie Joyner knew it was time to follow a vocation closer to her heart. After trading in her medication samples for a pair of clippers, she founded Hair of the Dog Wash and Groom Salon. She immediately set to work making her grooming room as stress-free as possible for her canine customers.
As one means of accomplishing this goal, she installed hydraulic-lift fiberglass tubs and tables designed to accommodate large or aging animals without having to restrain them by the neck. A Clipper Vac professional grooming system was the next addition, allowing Maggie’s combs and clippers to comfortably remove matted fur and bones buried beneath dense overcoats. Today, when she isn’t busy combing through fur or clipping nails, Maggie continues to demonstrate her love for animals by finding new, permanent homes for foster dogs.
