The staff of Aesthetic Laser Solutions wield lasers daily, but unlike the characters in some sci-fi writer's novel, they wield their futuristic technologies to beautify the human body with efficient, comfortable, and safe treatments. They zap away hair at the follicle, performing more than 100,000 procedures in the last ten years. Despite the high-tech toys, the company's president says the clients remain her favorite part of her job, especially "seeing a client begin to feel more confident or more beautiful after a treatment."
Board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head-and-neck surgery), Dr. Steven Goldman of Westlake and Beachwood Plastic Surgery artfully reshapes bodies and wards off the signs of aging. He tucks tummies and enhances bust lines in his clinic's in-office operating suite, while the registered nurses, medical assistants, and medical aestheticians on his team tend to less invasive procedures such as beauty injections, noninvasive CoolSculpting, and laser treatments. The clinic's med spa offerings include customized facials and pharmaceutical peels, in addition to lash extensions, body waxing, and surfboard waxing.
Destiny Derma Spa & Salon's aestheticians dote on patron appearances with a line of top-shelf skincare products that nourish and moisturize. Certified organic or paraben-free serums by Eminence, Ilike, Image, Hydropeptide, Being True Cosmetics, Pure Illumination and Puramed are slathered gingerly across skinscapes to imbue skin with youthful radiance like the frosting on Peter Pan's birthday cake. Specialists bolster serum results by wielding an array of skin-smoothing devices, such as their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand or the Jet Peel device, which flushes away dull dead cells with supersonic jets of water and air.
The aestheticians at Beauty and Rejuvenation Essentials use intense pulsed light technology to eliminate unwanted hair and reduce the appearance of epidermal irregularities such as brown spots and rosacea. During their specialty treatments, professional staffers pass focused light from Xenon flash lamps over areas plagued by follicles or discoloration, such as the legs, back, and fourth and fifth tentacle. Clients can also address skin issues through photon-free exfoliation services such as crystal-equipped microdermabrasion and vitamin-enriched silk peels.
Being a top-200 salon is no small feat—those that make the cut are among the very best in their state and Dante Lucci Salon is just that. Their spot on Salon Today’s list of the top 200 salons is just one of its many accolades. The award attests to the success Dante Lucci Salon has had in rendering haircuts with razor- and clipper-cutting techniques. But it also underscores the salon staff’s commitment to continuing their education in order to stay abreast of new styling techniques and the ways in which nuclear physics can be applied to highlights (none so far). Beyond hair work, technicians perform nail services to pamper digits and makeup artists use the preservative-free Mineral Mine line to give clients a new look. In line with their excellent service, they use only the best products as well including those by Kevin Murphy, Oribe, and Living Proof.
