When he's not whittling figures at Creative, Dr. Alonso is traversing the globe organizing surgical missions and teaching surgeons how to perform techniques of his own invention.
The staff at Flawless Serenity are merely enhancers of natural beauty. They wax off unwanted hair from brows and upper lips and clear out clogged pores during facials. Clean canvases pop with professional makeup applications for daytime, weddings, and proms. And refreshed visages are completed with lash- and brow-tinting services. To make sure clients feel confident, Flawless Serenity also provides an FAQ page with helpful answers to questions such as "What products do you use?" and "What makes clouds stay up?"
Branching from a hallway adorned with hanging plants are private treatment rooms painted a soft sage green. In these tranquil nooks, aestheticians perform various facials that imbue expressions with youthful radiance and clarity. Several facials include steam cleaning, extractions, staring contests, and masks; more specialized services, such as back facials and anti-aging facials, nurture skin with products of marine origin. Massage therapists direct their attention to knots below the skin with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Natasha Sandy always knew she wanted to be a doctor, but it was her life experiences that narrowed her focus to dermatology. As a child, she suffered from skin conditions that landed her in numerous hospitals and doctors' offices, and led her to wish for a specialist that would take a whole-body approach to skincare, rather than just treating symptoms. Today, that's exactly what she does at her own practice, where she used advanced diagnostic tools to––in her own words––"treat skin from the inside out."
When she isn't administering injectables, peels, and other therapies to address cosmetic and health-related skincare issues, Dr. Sandy also teaches and writes about dermatology and total health.
