Yellow accents and diffused lighting make the reception area of LaBrecque Center for Aesthetics feel more like an upscale living room. This homey vibe permeates the center's private treatment rooms, where Tempur-Pedic pillows sprawl across fluffy beds. In these well-appointed quarters, beauty professionals sit down with patients for aesthetic consultations and treatments. They take time to account for all the factors that impact beauty, and use these considerations to build treatment plans that help clients look and feel as beautiful on the outside as they do inside their high-school yearbooks. Licensed aestheticians call upon laser technology for the majority of services, wielding the energetic light to remove hair, tighten skin, and spur cell regeneration. Complementing their work, an onsite physician plumps wrinkles with Botox and performs laser tattoo removal with an authentic lightsaber.

Ridding unwanted hair from clients' bodies since 1975, the skincare specialists at European Wax Center have had plenty of time to perfect the four-step waxing process. First, a specialist cleanses the skin and layers it with pre-wax oil so the wax adheres to the hair and not the skin. Next, the specialist applies exclusive EWC Comfort Wax crafted in Paris from beeswax, which is gentler to the skin than traditional wax or wax made from ground-up rocks. Finally, after the hair has been removed, a rejuvenation product is applied to freshly waxed areas, leaving behind soft, silky-smooth skin.
