With 10 years of experience under their belt, the board-certified aestheticians at Aesthetic Art focus on three kinds of advanced beauty services: vein therapy, hair removal, and facial skincare. Their Cutera Excel lasers noninvasively tackle unsightly veins, from superficial facial anomalies to buried blue leg veins, and laser hair removal sidesteps the more painful follicular deactivation of waxing, shaving, or sandpapering. Aesthetic Art extends its forward-thinking approach to facial treatments, including microdermabrasion and specially formulated peels.
Though true perfection is unattainable, the technicians at Beauty Kingdom take pride in helping clients get as close as possible to their aesthetic ideal. Staffers target unwanted hair with the LightSheer Duet, a vacuum-assisted laser system whose capability to treat large body areas, shortens the duration of hair-removal treatments. Aestheticians tend to complexions during facials that target dead skin, blackheads, and acne, and permanent-makeup artists line lips and fill eyebrows with a variety of colors that won?t smear, smudge, or melt in the spring.
Sterling Laser Clinic is located inside of Town Pediatric, where Dr. Besma Mikhail provides medical care for young patients and aesthetic upgrades for adults. Inside of a private treatment room, technicians use the Cheveux laser machine to render skin smooth and hairless. The nonsurgical procedure can be applied to most parts of the body, such as the face, stomach, bikini area, legs, and arms.
Although the stylists at Vibe Hair Studio specialize in color services—such as dimensional color, color blocking, and highlighting—longtime clients love the salon's luxurious shampoo station. The lather lounge feels more like a spa thanks to essential oils, soothing music, and gently flickering candles, not to mention the relaxing hot-towel scalp massage included with each wash. At the studio's interactive color bar, owner, stylist, and Paul Mitchell educator Linda Lipka and her team helps patrons create their own personalized palette from a vibrant assortment of Paul Mitchell products.
The staff stays ahead of industry trends with continuing education, and also offers custom cuts for men and women, extensions, and formal updos. Sleek black styling chairs and a black wall with white polka dots create a hip, modern ambiance, as do the light fixtures, which resemble upside-down bouquets of orbs similar to those nervously presented by robots on a first date.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
Despite its name, Fingers Salon & Spa isn't all about hands and nails. Manicures, pedicures, and soothing paraffin dips are certainly among the spa's most popular treatments, but they never threaten to overshadow the full list of hair services. That's largely because the stylists are so talented at what they do, whether it involves cutting and highlighting hair or counting individual strands to make sure they're all accounted for. Other services on the spa's extensive menu include cleansing facials, massages, and hair removal.
