Cristina Queiroz specializes in gentle hair removal utilizing a sugaring technique in order to give her clients the closest possible wax without lingering irritation. In addition to performing her specialization on the Brazilian region, she provides sugar hair removal for men, as well. She also provides spray tans, chemical peels, and facials.
On the top floor of a quaint two-story house, Antonio Michael Salon's staff of hairstylists, nail techs, and aestheticians work to engender tranquility through a vast offering of spa and salon services. Inside private rooms, aestheticians and massage therapists tend to façades and physiques with deep-tissue massage, seaweed wraps, and a dozen types of facials. Hairdressers snip and style tresses and smooth away frizz or curl with four types of hair-texturing treatments.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Renée Rudikh’s pursuit of beauty began in her native country of Ukraine, where she trained with dermatologists and plastic surgeons before moving to the United States to attend the Christine Valmy International School of Cosmetology. She spent 10 years working at such skincare companies as Helena Rubinstein, Mario Badescu, and Georgette Klinger. Now at her own company, Renée Rudikh Advanced Skin Care, she corrects and maintains skin with services that lift, exfoliate, and cleanse. Like a car that can also transform into a boat or a stylish blazer, Renée's treatments adapt to the circumstances: the teens' deep pore-cleansing facial takes emerging hormones into account, and the gentlemen’s facial considers the skin differences that accompany carrying a Y chromosome.
As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
The entire spa is quiet and calming, and the decor is simple and soothing. Because we are located on the second floor, we have a private and secluded ambiance.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Covering skin imperfections, such as black heads, breakouts and skin lesions, with lots of make up. To me, healthy and radiant skin is more beautiful than anything else. Start taking care of your skin instead of covering it up.
How did you get started in the industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I've always been interested in health, beauty, and well-being, but I studied and worked in different fields for long time. I found out that this is the industry that could integrate all the subjects I'm passionate about. Now I love and enjoy what I am doing.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
As we say, "beauty comes from within." Adding a positive attitude in to our daily routine makes everything easier. Start your day with good intentions and positive thoughts, and let your inner beauty shine through your skin. Be the first one who smiles, because "when you smile at the world, the whole world smiles back."
