Amber Herzog, a licensed electrologist who honed her skills at the Electrology Institute of New England, helps men and women escape the cycles of unwanted hair growth. Sunshine filters in through the windows of the pleasant treatment room in which she works, providing abundant light for her meticulous task of sending direct and alternating currents into hair follicles using fine probes. Administered at multiple stages of the hair growth cycle, those currents destroy hair cells and inhibit future growth more effectively than individually setting each hair on fire. The treatments are minimally painful and are effective on all types of skin and hair.
Wise Laser Skin Care's certified beauty enhancers turn back the hands of time with non-surgical solutions, including skin-smoothing Botox injections. Fine lines on commonly creased areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, and above the lip begin to fade as Botox slows down hyperactive muscles with a Botulinum-laced lullaby. Visages smooth out over the course of a week, with the skin softening results lasting about three to five months. Like a 1,000 piece puzzle of an all black Rothko painting, the lunchtime procedure generally takes less than an hour to complete.
Like a Swiss army knife, Skin Therapeutics's chemical peels can get you out of a range of problematic situations. The Jessner peel, for one, intensely exfoliates the skin to purge surface acne. The glycolic peel’s fruit-acid-infused formula speeds up cellular turnover, which in turn inspires an even skin texture. And the five-berry peel—a blend of cranberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and bearberry—fights sun damage, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and excess oil.
The perceptive staff at Skin Therapeutics specialize in tailoring these and a swath of other, high-tech treatments to match each client’s unique needs. Their fleet of machines includes lasers that stunt hair growth and intense pulsed light that neutralizes sun damage and moonburn. While their traditional classic facials to slough away dead skin from the face, staff can also use an ultrasound device for state-of-the-art complexion cleansing.
At Electrology Laboratory of Maine, Michelle Noel and her team beautify bodies with permanent hair-removal treatments and smiles with teeth-whitening sessions. To remove hair from the face, torso, or limbs, the staff members use slender probes that emit low-intensity electrical impulses, destroying the follicle's ability to regrow hair. For teeth whitening, they employ LumaProbe, whose light-emitting diodes and whitening gel visibly lighten teeth, leaving smiles brighter than a ghost's newly bleached sheet.
