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.
At Delight Beauty and Day Spa, aestheticians strive to give patients a retreat from everyday stressors. They stock the waiting room with complimentary beverages and snacks, and while new clients wait, they fill out a form that helps tailor services to their skin and body issues. The spa's private rooms are as quiet and tranquil as a mouse in a library. Clients lie on crisp linens while aestheticians explain their treatments, from facials targeted to skin type to massages that aim to simply relax, reduce chronic muscle aches, or assuage the discomfort of pregnancy. If they are interested, clients can also have staffers inform them about the latest beauty services, such as eyelash extensions or permanent makeup. The team is so experienced in the latter, they train future techs onsite.
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.
NV Hair Studio is many things at once. For some patrons, it's a trendy hair studio, where stylists sculpt elegant up-dos and install full weaves. For others, it's a relaxing day spa where aestheticians perform facials designed to address issues ranging from wrinkles to acne. And for male clients, NV Hair Studio harkens back to the classic barbershops of yore, treating gents to the types of hot lather shaves and guy-friendly manicures once enjoyed by cowboys in the old west.
