Lisa Rowe Glickoff's more than 20-year career is just as diverse as the pictures of fantasy, special effects, and beauty makeup in her portfolio. When she is not busy prepping faces for fashion, film, and high-profile events— such as dolling up celebs for the 2006 Academy Awards— the makeup-industry veteran spends time on the product side of the industry. In addition to serving as a beauty rep for brands such as Paula Dorf Cosmetics, she also has created Astute, her own line of makeup. But even with all of these accomplishments, the one that’s closest to her heart remains the founding of Astute Artistry, her makeup-training boutique and beauty studio. From within the 8,000 square foot space—decorated with modern Paris-themed decor—she teaches aspiring make-up artists how to create Hollywood-approved special effects and beauty makeup during hands-on classes that range from beginner level to advanced professional.
When not teaching others the tricks of the beauty trade, Lisa puts her aesthetician license and chic boutique to use by shaping brows with threading, enhancing eyes with lash extensions, and rejuvenating mature, teen, and dehydrated skin during facials. Lisa and her team also provide traditional makeup applications for brides and those attending special events.
Lisa is also committed to helping those in need, which is why she founded Astute Artistry II, a nonprofit makeup studio catering to women affected by skin and hair conditions, which was featured in Hour Detroit magazine.
The staff at Progressive Laser beautify bodies with minimally invasive med-spa services during appointments scheduled seven days a week. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate visages to imbue skin with a youthful glow, and injections of dermal fillers and Botox help smooth out fine lines. Hair removal with a Lumenis LightSheer laser can also clear-cut body foliage or pay homage to a favorite parent by shaping a patch of arm hair to spell out mom.
No two treatments at Michigan Advanced Aesthetics are quite alike. The experienced aestheticians and skin specialist know just how to customize a facial or chemical peel for a client's specific set of issues, from wrinkles to acne to melasma (dark patches of skin). The team of nurses can also administer injectables like Botox, perhaps during a private party at the spa.
Other treatments work together to deliver results. Microdermabrasion, for example, can combine with a peel to fight signs of aging and give pores a message that says "we're watching you." The center also touts the benefits of Advanced Dermapen Collagen Induction, which relies on tiny needles to help stimulate collagen production across the body.
Pigalle Salon & MedSpa is equally committed to traditional and high-tech beauty services, so much so that its divided into two parts: the salon and med spa, respectively. In the salon stylists use K?rastase treatments to nourish locks and imbue manes with color and administer Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, relaxers, and Brazilian Blowouts. Aestheticians, on the other hand, cleanse complexions with Image Skincare products, lengthen eyelashes with Xtreme Lashes, and apply organic spray tans to bronze skin without needing to find a casting mold big enough for a person.?
In the futuristic med spa, services rely on cutting-edge technology to deliver treatments, such as microdermabrasion and IPL photofacials. Many treatments even harness the power of lasers, as is the case with its hair-removal treatments and CoolTouch laser treatments, which promote collagen production, improving the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
An expert in cosmetic dermatology, Dr. Steven Grekin has made it his mission to help people put their best faces forward. With the help of the staff at Skin Perfection, he provides clients with medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology services that range from all-natural acne treatments to Botox and mole or cyst removal. The Grekin product line enables clients to continue to care for their skin at home after treatments without having to keep it moist by sleeping in a pile of juicy plums.
