Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests. Each team member applies synthetic extensions one by one, making lashes longer without fitting them for tiny platform shoes. The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first—Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.
Whether lightening the appearance of wrinkles or blasting away dead skin cells, the medical staff at both locations of Mosa Med Spa rely on up-to-date cosmetics equipment. Board-certified physicians Jose I. Garri, MD, DMD and Dr. Ramiro Peréz, Jr. lead a team of medical professionals, all of whom specialize in minimally invasive techniques such as skin-resurfacing microdermabrasion and anti-aging facials. One of the med spa's crowning jewels is the Candela laser, which heats away melanin deep in the follicles to remove hair from nearly any skin type.
Dr. Eddie Armas, director of Le Nouveau Eco Medical Spa, brings more than 25 years of experience to the clinic's roster of cosmetic and anti-aging procedures. His team of aestheticians fights wrinkles with various peels and collagen-boosting therapies or slims physiques with noninvasive body contouring. Medical weight-loss programs help dieters drop pounds under the watchful eye of a physician, and bio-identical hormone pellets inserted under the skin boost vigor and brain function better than an IV of Jolt cola.:m]]
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.
When it comes to his bona fides, Dr. Carlos Verdeza is a regular jet-setter. He first graduated from medical school at Columbia's Pontifical Bolivariana University before becoming an OB/GYN at Albany Medical Center in New York. From there, he cut a swath through the medical community, snatching up certifications from the International Society of Cosmetic Gynecology, American Academy of Anti Aging and Metabolic Medicine, and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
At his private practice, the good doctor blends his vocational pursuits to deliver a staggering array of answers to cosmetic concerns. Folks looking to offload some stubborn pounds can come in for weight-loss therapy, liposuction, or tummy tucks. If you're looking to turn back the clock, Dr. Verdeza is well-versed in hormone replacement therapy and platelet-rich plasma facelifts that redirect a client's own platelets to restore the appearance of youth to visages.
HD Esthetique focuses on the little things. Its trio of doctors includes a highly trained urologist, a board-certified plastic surgeon, and a specialist in eyelid and facial plastic surgery, all of whom work to make each body part look its best. The variety of services range from liposuction to buttock augmentation and laser hair removal. For a small touchup, clients can undergo Botox or dermal fillers, which inject serums filled with the rubbings of magic erasers under the skin to erase fine lines and wrinkles. More full-body makeover treatments include ultrasonic cavitation to help decrease fat cells and PRP skin rejuvenation using the patient's own plasma to tighten saggy skin and decrease the appearance of wrinkles.
