Whether online or in-person, Allure Beauty Lounge outfits epidermises with a slew of high-quality products. Licensed aestheticians man the brick-and-mortar boutique, where they dispel four types of facials—such as the Organic Apple Soufflé treatment, complete with hot towels and an apple-spice mask. They also smooth skin with fruit-acid chemical peels and waxing for the face and body. The team dolls up brides and prom queens for their big day, and teaches budding makeup artists all the essentials, from applying concealer to playing up their cheekbones, third eye, or lips. Online, customers can fill their electronic shopping carts with mineral eye shadow, smudge-proof mascara, and cream foundation in 19 shades.
Dr. Augusto N. Pareja, who served as an emergency-room physician and was the medical director of urgent care centers, combines the clinical skills he's honed over the years with holistic techniques and Chinese medicine to heal bodies. He believes that traditional medicine alone doesn’t always work, which is why he combines it with nonconventional techniques and medications that have been proven effective through decades of research. His multifaceted approach to pain management includes acupuncture, massage, detoxification, and personalized weight-loss programs. He also treats bodies’ outsides and makes them more beautiful with rejuvenating facial peels and light therapy, laser hair removal, and glitter.
The beautification team of Take it Off! Spa uses high-quality lasers to rejuvenate the exteriors of clients of all skin types. Of the many offerings, the team’s pride and joy is its signature bikini-line hair-removal treatment—dubbed the Sexy Tini-Trim—which yields the same results of a Brazilian wax without the inherent discomfort of strips. The technicians also can remove regrettable tattoos with advanced laser technology or enhance the smile of any newly tattoo-free client with no-down-time Botox treatments.
In addition to their toxin-busting, energy-rebalancing foot-cleanse sessions, Whitening Bright Studio's resident technicians have devoted themselves to helping people look younger and healthier fast with in-office and take-home teeth-whitening treatments. In their comfortable, spa-like whitening studio, they paint teeth with a peroxide gel and shine a cool LED light on them for 20–30 minutes. This activates the gel and rapidly removes evidence of tobacco smoke, coffee, or the inevitable yellowing that comes with age or eating yellow paint chips. Take-home whitening kits allow clients to continue the whitening at home with a gentler version of the in-office gel, a miniature LED lamp, and a Lilliputian technician.
