"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
With more than 5,000 square feet of soothing spa space and a team of trusted technicians, Parisian Day Spa & Permanent Make up Salon pampers its patients with a plethora of skin-rejuvenating procedures. Within its lavender-colored lamp-lit walls, the spa restores clients to stress-free stasis, while serving them refreshments of mimosas, wine, and savory snacks. During the seaweed miracle wrap, skilled swaddle-smiths snugly wrap spa-goers in a seaweed blanket. Upon skin contact, the wrap's valuable nutrients labor to trim inches off of corporeal perimeters, subdue cellulite's dimpling forces, promote detoxification, and provide savvy camouflage for crashing caterpillar birthday parties.
If you call Laser & Skin Care Center of Nevada, a laser nurse will answer the phone, but not just to say hello. With just a description of your skin’s needs, he or she can prescribe the proper skincare treatment, quote a price, and answer any lingering questions you may have. These consultations, which can also be conducted in person, help fulfill the center’s mission that was set when it opened in 2004: to help patients achieve their optimal physical appearance and boost their self-esteem. Their treatments range from laser facelifts to teeth whitening to medical-grade microdermabrasions, and all of the nurses are extensively trained to man each type of laser housed in the office or on their secret moon base.
The self-proclaimed “waxperts” at Wax Hair Removal Bar eliminate stubble and fuzz with a combination of cream and hard waxes. Though they’re predominantly known for servicing male clients—more than 40 percent of their customers are men—they offer waxing services to all, and remove hairs from nearly every part of the body, from the eyebrows to the toes. They can supplement waxes with Swarovski Crystal tattoos or other aesthetic services, from bikini treatments that prevent ingrown hairs to the ultimate chest treatment, which keeps acne away from six-packs like a chaperone on a middle-school camping trip. The bar also dolls up patrons with brow- and lash-tinting services as well as lip services powered by a blend of shea butter and avocado oil.
Renew Medical Spa emerged from a combination of Dr. Jin Lee's medical expertise and her own quest for flawless skin. She holds her aestheticians to a high standard as they perform the same laser and medical-grade cosmetic treatments with which she found personal success over the years. From rejuvenating spa facials and peels to microcurrent, radio-frequency, and television-static skin tightening, the med spa's services help clients fight the signs of aging and feel beautiful.
