Most 12-year-olds have no idea what they want to do with their lives, but that’s when Maria DeNicola first found the inspiration to study electrolysis. As of today, she’s been doing electrolysis for more than 29 years and has even devised an all-new technique to attack full follicles with alternating current. DeNicola also eliminates unwanted body hair through laser hair removal or break-dance competitions on sandpaper.
With the help of her med spa team, which includes a registered nurse, DeNicola pampers faces with microdermabrasion and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin, as well as fights wrinkles with Botox injections. DeNicola happily serves members of the transgender community with her services and formerly acted as president of transgender support group A Rose.
The certified medical professionals at Phoenix Skin Medical Surgical Group turn back time with medical-grade cosmetic services. Dr. Lee Laris spearheads the campaign to create beautiful visages across the city. Experienced in hair restoration and cosmetic surgery, he oversees a number of procedures including face lifts, hair rejuvenation services, earlobe repair, and tattoo removal. For tattoo removal procedures, technicians use the newly FDA-approved PicoSure Laser to quickly remove even the toughest of colors. For a minimally invasive improvement, the doctor can also inject a dermal filler such as Botox or Juvederm into the skin, erasing lines and wrinkles around the face. Laser treatments, meanwhile, also erase sagging skin, leg hair, and regrettable tattoos, revealing the clear skin or forgotten Picasso painting underneath.
Expertise reigns at Advanced Laser Clinics in Glendale, part of a national chain that has performed more than 250,000 laser treatments. Technicians can calibrate the center's Lumenis LightSheer laser system to treat a range of hair and skin types, with each noninvasive session incurring minimal amounts of downtime afterward. Microdermabrasion treatments and laser tattoo removals lock mechanical arms to keep the topmost dermal layers as spotless as a Dalmatian spy disguised to infiltrate a Labrador militia. Staff members look past the surface with injectable services, which can hide minor blemishes or boost a client's metabolism.
Since 1975, National Hair Centers have treated men and women’s thinning tresses with treatments ranging from surgical hair transplants to vitamin supplements. Their three-step laser program catalyzes growth with beams tailored to clients’ specific hair loss stage; alternatively, FDA-approved regrowth products—such as Propecia and Minoxidil— encourage follicles to sprout more effectively than fedoras lined with Chia seeds. An array of women’s-only options, such as wigs and extensions, round out the offerings. The center's team of image consultants and licensed hair restoration stylists also place a premium on privacy, ensuring clients’ comfort by leading confidential consultations, treating scalps in private salon suites, and discouraging friends from hosting hair-graft-anniversary parties.
