Aesthetician Summerr Reyna doesn’t focus on pampering her clients. Rather, the owner of GlamSkin takes a results-oriented approach to reversing sun damage, fine lines, and dehydrated skin. But her treatments aren’t meant to be uncomfortable either. Summerr uses a gentle touch when massaging Skin Script products into the epidermis during custom facials and removing body hair with Tamara’s Professional Body Sugaring wax. Even her most advanced treatment, micro-phototherapy, works to minimize discomfort while a combination of heat and light enters the skin, aiming to stimulate collagen production.
Summerr also uses her purple-and-black treatment room to host her applications of Advanced Mineral Makeup. Infused with anti-inflammatory ingredients, these cosmetics are able to soothe the skin while simultaneously providing full coverage that masks redness.
At Images Partner Studios, master stylists, colorists, aestheticians, and massage therapists help patrons look and feel their best in an intimate, private setting. After cuts and colorings, stylists add a complimentary blowout for a finished look. Skincare staff are certified in several specialized treatments including laser services, advanced Rhonda-Allison peels, and HydraFacial resurfacing treatments. For an aromatic-massage session, therapists offer the Massage Flame Experience, in which a lit candle transforms first into warm massage oil, then into a gift that guests take home, and finally into a cozy digs for homeless genies. Staffers also handcraft airbrush spray tans that last about five to seven days.
Carolyn B. Melby has more certifications and licenses than she can shake a stick at—an obvious truth when you consider that she has yet to receive a certification in stick shaking. During her 30 years in the skincare industry, Melby has earned an aesthetician license, two business degrees, a certification in permanent makeup, and a license in medical laser technology in the state of Arizona. Given such a broad skill set, her similarly wide selection of services comes as little surprise to her clients. Of her many talents, Carolyn most often works with aging, acne-prone, or hyperpigmented skin—conditions that she diligently treats with high-end services such as microdermabrasion, skin-rejuvenation therapy, and permanent makeup applications.
At Rejuvenation Medical Spa, Dr. Michael J. Depenbusch uses his more than 20 years of experience to guide his technicians and aestheticians as they revitalize clientele with medical-grade products from Latisse, Jane Iredale skincare, and SkinMedica. The facility’s spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, help reveal a youthful gleam in clients of all ages. Services such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, Allergan Botox, and lip enhancements also do their part, reducing and removing wrinkles so they can return to adding character to poorly pressed pants.
At Skin of Dreams, licensed aestheticians Tiffany Thyfault and Paula McPherson bring passion and expertise to each appointment. After earning her aesthetics license, Thyfault pursued certification as a permanent-cosmetics artist. Today, she performs the precision handiwork that allows women to wake up day after day with bold liner, expressive brows, and blushed, but not embarrassed, lips. Working alongside Thyfault, McPherson performs skincare services including facials, chemicals peels, and microdermabrasion. Additionally, new aesthetician Sandra Medeiros wax faces and bodies. The aesthetician also can whiten teeth with a gel that eliminates stains.
The licensed aestheticians and laser technicians at In The Name Of Beauty have many different ways to keep their clients looking beautiful. They use more than a dozen varieties of facials to soothe skin with natural enzymes and antioxidants, such as microdermabrasion, which can exorcize the ghosts of dead skin cells. They also treat clients to waxing services, which leave skin smooth and free of unwanted hair, and professional airbrush makeup, which beautifies faces for parties, weddings, or clown weddings.
