From inside a Euro-boutique style clinical office, experienced aesthetician Anya Heck and her board-certified staff restore visages plagued by aging, acne, and dehydration. They lure healthy complexions to the skin's surface with custom facials and peels, pulling from DDF, Vi Derm, Neova, and SkinCeuticals product lines. More advanced treatments include dermaplaning, which utilizes a blade to remove outer layers of dead skin cells, as well as galvanic high-frequency facials that harness electrical currents to tone the skin and recharge mechanical eyelids. Heck is also a trained Novalash eyelash extensionist who can help bulk up lash lines with faux strands that are individually adhered to natural lashes.
Drawing from more than 20 years of surgical experience, Dr. Lawrence Kurtzman restores the balance between patient and doctor by educating his clients, empowering them to make informed decisions regarding their cosmetic goals. Despite a bustling schedule, he oversees a specially qualified staff as they reshape, reconstruct, and augment visages and physiques.
In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Dr. Kurtzman's center also refines patients' looks with noninvasive procedures, including chemical peels, aesthetic laser skin resurfacing, and texture-smoothing dermabrasions.
Permanent Perfection Permanent Cosmetics’ licensed beauticians upgrade clients' appearances with classic and uncommon spa services. During therapeutic cupping treatments, staffers create small pockets of suction to gently increase lymphatic flow, reduce toxins, contour bodies, and ameliorate scarring. To mold shapelier frames, technicians swaddle guests with slimming body wraps or melt fat with ultrasound liposuction. In addition to body treatments, the clinic offers teeth-whitening, facials, and permanent-makeup applications. Permanent Perfection's techs can also remove tattoos by using advanced technology or traveling back in time and trapping your past self in a net.
With its Star Trekable equipment and top-notch customer service, Anderson Cosmetic & Vein Institute has been a leader in the non-surgical cosmetic field for the past 10 years, though it looks way younger. Instead of self-serve laser stations, an experienced staff helps customers begin their fleshoskeleton's beautification with an initial skin assessment and a consultation that determines the best way to customize the treatment to each patient. Patrons can then experience a microdermapeel treatment, which combines the effects of microdermabrasion with a chemical peel. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of new cells and collagen through gentle abrasion and voodoo spells, and following that, a customized glycolic or salicylic-acid peel is applied to provide further exfoliation while reducing pore size, scarring, small lines, and the risk of being hit by lightning.
The founder of Beyond Beauty Skin Care always knew she was interested in running a company. She helped her parents at their family business for 10 years before realizing there was still something missing, though. An aesthetic license, which she received in 2002, filled that gap. She could then work closely with people, helping them reach individual beauty goals. To help them towards those goals, she spent several years in a high-end spa learning techniques for combating the signs of age that occur naturally over the years. She can also bring to bear a combination of techniques, from alternative medicine to more traditional microdermabrasion, against acne, hyper pigmentation, and rosacea. Companies such as PCA, Skinceuticals, Obagi, Guinot, and others help equip her for this work.
