Not only does Images International cut hair, it also grows it. The LaserTek 9000 Hair Therapy laser emits low-level light, causing a chain reaction of cell repair. This microscopic round of dominoes eventually leads to hair regrowth, and Image International's team of tight-knit technicians has revitalized dozens of scalps on both men and women. Once clients have thicker heads of hair, stylists can cut it into chic styles and use the trimmings to make friendship bracelets. The salon's other treatments for hair loss include permagraphs, prostheses, and professional wigs customized to each scalp.
Throughout the course of their lives, people might spend several hours studying their hair in the mirror, but that qualifies very few of them to be trichologists. The branch of medicinal science known as trichology focuses on the study of the hair and scalp, and it’s a field that Agape Jordan is intimately familiar with, thanks to her certification. She puts her knowledge to use creating gentle, hair-restorative scalp treatments free of harsh chemicals. They are suited for those who suffer from a hair-loss disease such as lupus or those in the midst of chemotherapy.
She complements her specialized head-dressing treatments with skin-pampering services for all. Her epidermal services emphasize acne treatments, vitamin C restorative facials, and anti-aging treatments designed to repel the chief causes of aging: homework, bosses, and the undeniable loveliness of Florida.
Dr. Sandra Brown has won several awards for her groundbreaking research in the treatment of hair loss and acne scars, including Michiganian of the Year in 1998. Her work is based in Ayurvedic medicine, a natural approach to health believed to restore the body's equilibrium.
Using a patented gel that she developed herself, Dr. Brown stimulates hair follicles to grow thicker and faster, reversing hair loss caused by alopecia, genetic thinning, and stress. A proprietary chemical peel helps eliminate acne and acne scars, and a facial peel treats darks spots, uneven tone, and other signs of aging, such as frown lines caused by thinking about that no-goodnik General Custer.
Dr. Ayoub Sayeg reshapes his clients' faces and bodies with plastic surgery techniques he had been honing since completing his plastic surgery residency at Wayne State in 2000. Over the past decade or so, he has published a number of articles on plastic surgery and has become a member of many professional organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He draws upon this experience to enhance bosoms, minimize tummies, and shorten noses of lying puppets and real live humans at Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center.
As the models of the African World Festival’s Detroit Rocks the Runway fashion show sauntered down the runway at Hart Plaza, some onlookers had to remind themselves that the show was about clothing. The hairstyling team nearly stole the show with their gravity-defying styles, but one could hardly blame them. After all, they’re used to doing the same every day at Zenru the salon, a multicultural salon where they specialize in adding color and texture to ethnic hair. Beyond flattering cuts and styles, their menu of services includes color retouches and personalized deep-conditioning treatments. Perms transform straight strands into crowns of bouncy curls, and sew-in extensions give hair enough length to double as a carpet when walking backward across dirty floors.
Michigan Hair & Skin Center’s expert staff harnesses the power of light to rejuvenate clients from head to toe. The team members call upon FDA-approved low-level light therapy to stimulate hair growth and increase hair count by up to 93% during comfortable 30-minute sessions. They use that same laser power to banish fine lines and wrinkles, stirring cells into regenerating tissue and boosting blood circulation. Aside from laser power, the center also enlists infrared heat to slim and contour physiques without the burden of exercising or wrapping the tummy in shrink wrap.
