The beauty-enhancing engineers at Lazersmooth administer noninvasive treatments performed in an understanding and professional environment. If stains remain from ill-advised coffee and beet diets, remove them with a teeth-whitening treatment. During three 20-minute cycles, cold-light technology emits a concentrated beam of blue light and hygienic vibes that react with specially formulated whitening gel to improve enamel's exquisiteness.
Stripped Waxing Boutique and Spa's troupe of talented aestheticians create sleek skin suits with a spread of beautifying treatments. Using antioxidant-enriched wax that leaves skin nourished, a professional strand puller will extract fuzz lining the lips and over-eye arches during the waxing package. Airbrush tanning coats bone blankets in a refreshing, golden tan without the damaging effects of the sun. The clear, DHA-infused solution applies evenly for a smooth, streak-free glow to transform porcelain figures into cast-bronze figures, perfect for adorning the front of ships.
The up-to-date lasers at Belallure Laser & Wellness Center are a triple threat—they can reduce unwanted hair growth, erase tattoos, and obscure signs of aging. Noninvasive Laser 360 treatments compound photonic wonderment by toning crinkled skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and balancing discoloration. The physician-supervised team also inspires overall well-being with an arsenal of more traditional spa treatments. Hot-stone and Swedish massages, for example, relax musculatures, whereas a set of facials brighten complexions better than neon blush at a blacklight disco.
On the surface, Anew MediSpa looks like an upscale spa, with a homey waiting room decked out in hardwood furniture and sunny yellow paint. The services fit the bill, too: traditional facials, waxing, and massage therapy among them. However, the center boasts a medical director, Dr. Ashley Chin, who personally administers all injections of Botox and Juvéderm. It's her medical expertise, paired with the center's state-of-the-art technology, that gives Anew its edge.
Dr. Chin oversees the safety of the med spa's laser treatments, which include hair and spider-vein removal, skin tightening, photofacials, and acne treatments. Despite the reliance on technology, Dr. Chin and her team of aestheticians are personally invested in each treatment, maintaining a professional-and-inviting atmosphere that makes clients feel at ease.
Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
