Slowing down the passing of time has always been an elusive endeavor. But the aestheticians at Beautiful Image may have found their own solution: microcurrent treatments. The treatment's noninvasive wands aim to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin in the facial muscles in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and perma-frowns.
The goal at NOW Lipo-Loss is two-fold—to help clients both look and feel their best. To accomplish the former, the staff uses the FDA-approved Vevazz system to shrink fat cells, diminish stretch marks, and promote smoother-looking skin. They also usher clients atop the whole-body vibration platform, which stimulates muscles for a full-body workout. When it comes to feeling better, the staff offers self-mastery therapy sessions to combat stress and negativity.

While alchemists never managed to transmute lead into gold, Geneva De la Rouge may be considered a modern alchemist. She uses her knowledge of the aesthetic elements—essential oils, nutrient-rich clay, and other natural ingredients—to transform skin from looking timeworn to youthful. Geneva customizes her elixirs to suit a wide range of skin types, which she differentiates by using the five elements of Chinese medicine as a guide. For each of these elements, such as fire—which is responsible for blotchy red skin—Geneva employs the elemental opposite, balancing dry skin with moisture, sallow skin with nutrients, and irritated skin with a fire extinguisher.
