Though the staff of Lana’s Place is adept at everything from tinting and cutting hair to grooming and polishing nails to administering effective body-slimming treatments, one look at the menu of services makes it clear that the eclectic salon’s main focus is skin. The team of skilled aestheticians uses a range of tools and ingredients to lend potency to its skincare services, including 24-karat gold that refines skin and microneedles that smooth wrinkles by spurring the body’s natural collagen production. The menu of services includes a mix of relaxing and problem-targeting treatments to help clients keep their minds clear and their skin glowing, much like meditating with a squirm of glow worms. This skin-pampering focus even extends to other salon treatments, where aestheticians might incorporate skin-smoothing products into pedicures, massages, and waxing treatments.
Dr. Leonid Rubinov's desire to tend to teeth began when he was 14 years old, when he decided to follow in the footsteps of his late father, a practicing dentist and dental educator.
