DuVall’s School of Cosmetology epitomizes hands-on education. Though students do spend time in the classroom, most of their training is spent in the 11,900-square-foot school’s salon and spa, where they perform a roster of services on real people under the guidance of their instructors. Cosmetology students shampoo and cut hair, add length with extensions, and add hue with highlights. Students partake of elite training from instructors versed in the Sassoon method, a system honed by Vidal Sassoon himself during his more than 50 years as a top stylist. Meanwhile, aspiring aestheticians perform facials with products crafted by Dermalogica, a skincare brand that is produced without such common skin irritants as artificial colors, fragrances, and puns. Those outside of the training program can also take advantage of the school's pedigree by basking in carefully mastered beauty services performed by students at a fraction of standard salon prices.

The aestheticians at Smooth Skin Solutions strive to leave complexions as soft as summer peaches through their facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments. Each procedure factors in the individual's unique skin type and cellular needs and makes use of glo therapeutics cleansers, salves, and serums. Ultrasonic skin-tightening sessions target fine lines and puffiness by kicking circulation into high gear, and waxing treatments banish unwanted fuzz from lips, chins, and brows.
At the Wellness Med Spa & Laser Center, board-certified medical director David Kaner leads a team of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians who perform a suite of treatments for the face and body. Through a blend of traditional and technologically enhanced techniques, they reawaken youth with services customized to specific skin needs. Classic facials hydrate and clean the pores, and microdermabrasion uses mechanical instruments to lift away sun-damaged skin. Therapists deliver a range of massage modalities, and aestheticians enhance the natural outlines of the eyes with traditional makeup application. For more advanced treatments, staff members use laser and light therapies for skin tightening, hair removal, and curing fears of the dark.
Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care & Laser Center's licensed medical professionals perform a slew of noninvasive cosmetic services. Using IPL laser energy, they eliminate patient's unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos. Though specializing in laser therapy, they extend their aesthetic reach into the anti-aging cookie jar, performing microdermabrasions and Botox and Restylane injections, along with proffering an array of skincare products, including BioDerm and Obagi.
Licensed esthetician Alessandra endeavors to make all of her clients feel beautiful, whether she's layering on a facial chemical peel or concentrating on their backs. In fact, her back facials include all of the soothing standards you would find in a spa treatment for your face: steam, an exfoliating scrub, a mask, and moisturizers, as well as extractions, if needed.
Alessandra customizes all of her services to address different conditions—her anti-aging facials reduce the appearance of fine lines, whereas acne facials cleanse pores to fight blemishes. However, clients can also augment their appointment with add-ons, such as a galvanic-electric-current treatment that improves their skin's absorption of PCA Skin products. Alessandra also removes unwanted hair with waxing services.
