Certified electrologist Holly Pitman relies on electricity to free follicles of unwanted hair. She accomplishes this feat by inserting a fine metal probe into individual follicles—a process designed for permanent hair removal—whereby a mild electrical current destroys the hair at the root. Holding another certification in microcurrent technology, Holly also promotes smooth, wrinkle-free skin with microcurrent therapy and LED-light treatments.
Elite Laser & Spa?s stained-glass windows, large rugs, and potted plants differ from the all-white, minimalistic aesthetic of other med spas. The homey surroundings reflect owner Natasha Cambridge?s goal of creating a comfortable space where clients can relax as they receive spa services including chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and facials that use diamond particles to deeply exfoliate while softening and tightening complexions. In addition to being a licensed aesthetician, Cambridge is a certified laser technician boasting 10 years of experience with the Cynosure Alexandrite and Candela GentleLase Plus lasers, which she uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and pigmentation.
Chrissy, the registered nurse at Forever Flawless Medical Aesthetics and Laser, relies on her medical know-how as she administers beauty treatments that zap wrinkles and unwanted body hair. Her arsenal includes the Alma Harmony Pixel laser, which resurfaces complexions and increases collagen production, and an IPL device that improves pigmented blemishes with flashes of light. Beauty injections inhibit forehead furrows for months on end, and dermal fillers plump up thin lips, removing the need to get surgery or compete in boxing matches without a mouth guard.
Licensed aesthetician Adriane presides over Organically Bronzed, having turned her aesthetic talents toward airbrush tanning. She helps clients gain natural-looking, healthy glows—and it's the "healthy" part she's most concerned with. That's why she uses Norvell tanning spray, which darkens the skin with organic, plant-based ingredients. In addition to keeping clients safe from chemicals and UV rays, the spray also boasts quick dry time and wrinkle-smoothing antioxidants.
It should surprise nobody that Wax On Wax Off is devoted to the art of hair removal. What is surprising, however, is just how many treatments fill the menu at this strictly-waxing boutique. Hands, legs, chins, eyebrows, bikini lines, even feet?none of these areas are off-limits to the team of waxing specialists. There are even special waxing services for men (the "Bro"-zilian is an increasingly popular choice that leave skin smooth and comes with a righteous high five).
