The aestheticians at Jackie's Spa specialize in treatments that leave skin glowing. They augment facials with techniques such as vacuum suction or brush cleansing, exfoliate skin with fragrant lavender-salt scrubs, and mix ingredients such as french green clay, marine algae, and seaweed into active body masks. For complete smoothness, they also wax away unwanted body hair and apply moisturizing paraffin.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jeannine Hoang and her staff of skin whisperers carefully wield a CoolSculpting applicator to freeze targeted fat cells and slim clients’ silhouettes. One session of the non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment, featured on the Today Show in 2010, can reduce adipose tissue by an average of 20 percent without harming the surrounding tissue or creating long recovery times. Much like a macaroni sculpture that one builds during therapy, crystallized fat cells gradually come apart two to four months post-session, resulting in a trimmer figure that remains long after each visit.
Helmed by a team of aesthetic medical physicians and registered nurses, Asheni MedSpa reshapes and rejuvenates the skin with a litany of skin-smoothing treatments. Botanical facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments lift away dull, dead cells while nurturing the growth of supple collagen, whereas injectables iron out fine lines and wrinkles for months at a time. The med spa also employs lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair and resurface and rejuvenate aging skin.
Certified female clinicians expertly wield aesthetic lasers in the pursuit of removing stubborn fuzzy patches from faces and bodies. The laser, which delivers rapid, short pulses of light, also diminishes the appearance of fine lines on faces and any in photographs of yourself you bring along.
The grooming staff at Pearl Beauty Salon plucks follicles from myriad facial and bodily areas through gentle threading or warm waxing treatments. Fuzz hunters employ wax to smooth out skinscapes and threading experts drag a twisted-cotton thread over hirsute facial areas including the upper lip or eyebrows. Taut fibers trap hair and lift it out of the follicle in a process that can be less painful than other hair removal options and also exfoliates the skin. Like attendance in a rigorous exercise class, threading can lead to fewer and thinner hairs returning after successive sessions. Patrons can mix and match threading areas to deforest growth all over the body or focus on the same zone as a cover story for invisible tattoos.
