When people think of you, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely your face, closely followed by your puggle, then by a really weird commercial they saw on Monday-night football. Make your mug memorably shiny-fresh and give your designer lapdog a run for its kibble with today's skin-restoring deal. For $30, you'll get a rejuvenating microdermabrasion treatment at First Impressions Skin Care, a $65 value. While egghead scientists maintain that microdermabrasion is a purely physical process where layers of dead skin are removed by gentle exfoliation, the pure of heart (and soon to be pure of face) know that there is a greater force at work.
Gourmet FoodWorks Deli is a fully stocked meal stop that serves fresh salads, big burgers, and a veritable cornucopia of specialty sandwiches. The lunch menu testifies to an eclectic selection of noontime nourishment. The white-meat chicken-salad sandwich ($7.55) unites a croissant with sweet peppers and red onions, and the customer-loved twisted BLT deluxe ($7.85) pairs a half-pound of hickory-smoked bacon with FoodWorks' own pretzel bread. The spinach salad ($6.75) comes with an optional sweet poppy-seed dressing for fine dining after a Wizard of Oz reenactment, and the chicken taco salad ($7.85) is crowned with tortilla strips side-kicked by salsa. FoodWorks' soups, sauces, and dressings are always made fresh and in-house; nothing is drawn from frozen stock, unlike the entrees cryo-frozen for future generations at secret research diners scattered across the globe.
Certified laser technicians and aestheticians wield wands of intense pulsed light at Estetical Laser Hair Removal, removing unwanted patches of hair, regrettable tattoos, and stubborn acne. They also treat faces with hydroxy-acid peels, which work to diminish fine lines, sun spots, and freckles caused by too much time in the moonlight.
Hair-removing lasers and dermal fillers populate the list of cosmetic services offered at Clayton Med Spa. The center's skilled technicians and aestheticians bid dullness adieu with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, skin-rejuvenating photofacials, and other treatments that target the face and body. Those hoping to correct sagging skin sans surgery can receive noninvasive skin-tightening treatments, which use infrared light, magnetic pulses, and bipolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production. Injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane help fill in fine lines caused by aging or falling asleep atop a subway grate.
The Flawless Permanent Cosmetic Team highlights clients’ features with makeup that's as natural looking as it is certain to stick around. They enhance eyes and lips with permanent liner, and create signature custom-blended color brows to enhance your unique skintone. The Flawless team also provides less eternal solutions such as breast areola colour enhancement, scar camouflage, FLAWLASH extensions, waxing, and give lessons on how to bring out the eyes with nothing more than regular makeup.
To foster healthy, radiant skin, the aestheticians at SkinSpa at Salon Escape rely on the Dermalogica face-mapping system––a unique form of skin analysis that is only available at Dermalogica-authorized facilities. During the 5- to 10-minute procedure, a skin expert examines each of the face's 14 zones inch by inch using both sight and touch, noting each zone's unique characteristics and average rainfall on a prescription sheet. This sheet then serves as a visual guide for both client and staff as they decide on a suitable treatment plan, whether it be an ultracalming facial for irritated or inflamed skin or a photofacial for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Though they spend much of their time focusing on the face, the aestheticians also tend to skin below the neck with custom massages and exfoliating body polishes and can wax away unwanted hair wherever it sprouts.
The licensed nurses, laser technicians, and aestheticians at Metropolitan Cosmetic Laser Center are certainly skilled on their own, but they still work with a safety net in the form of the physician who owns the practice. Together, they administer laser-based procedures, including skin rejuvenation and vein, hair, and tattoo removal. They also perform Restylane and Dysport injections that help soften facial wrinkles, leaving skin smoother than a newborn beach ball.
