The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress specialize in ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique that?s popular in Europe and Australia. Rising to fame in the United States, the treatment, featured on the Dr. Oz show, uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells, whose contents are them removed from the body through natural metabolic processes. The techs customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. Their other services include massage therapy, vibration therapy, which causes a body to burn fat while standing still, and radiofrequency skin tightening.
As her client reclines, Nina of Absolute Lash isolates a single natural lash, to which she affixes one Xtreme Lash with a high-performance adhesive, then repeats. She does this 50–120 times during each 90-minute session, and she does it expertly, thanks to more than 15 years of experience performing the eye-enhancement service. Certified in aesthetics by Derma Elite Academy, Nina's also an advanced certified Xtreme Lashes stylist, accomplishing services ranging from natural to novelty lashes that come in pink, purple, and orange. Whether working with colored or natural lashes, her training allows her to curve, lengthen, and thicken the lashes to suit each client's eye shape, features, and number of eyes.
In addition to lash enhancement, Nina can peel away unwanted body hair with waxing services or apply a body-art glitter tattoo that, unlike traditional tattoos and beanie-baby collecting, doesn't last forever.
The best gardeners are said to have a "green thumb," savvy art collectors have "the eye," and those in the know say that Josanne Stephens of Spa in the City has a "special touch." Over the last 25 years, Josanne has pinned down the craft of beautification to a science. The focused beams of Spa In The City's lasers zap away nail fungus, unwanted tattoos, spider veins, and skin creases from napping in an amethyst mine.
"WARNING: we are not responsible for the trouble your lashes will get you into!” So proclaims a cheeky disclaimer on the Lashed Out website, attesting to the dramatic impact that the business' believes its eyelash extensions may bring to special events or underground staring contests. Applied by a state-certified eyelash extension specialist, each set of Mink lashes adheres one by one to the natural lashes courtesy of a waterproof bonding agent, adding length, thickness, and wow factor to every glance, and streamlining home makeup routines by negating the need for mascara or curling. With proper care, the lashes typically last anywhere from two to three weeks, and fill sets are available to help extend the lifespan of newly beefed-up blinkers.
The beauty hotspot Eliza Studio does much more than cut, highlight, and style hair?although those chic services are available. The independent professionals inside the welcoming space also polish nails with mani-pedis, remove unwanted hair with waxing services, and rejuvenate skin with facials and peels.

Ultimate Image 2 is the product of two distinct, yet equally important elements: technology and technicians. The laser spa is equipped with two Candela lasers?the Gentle Lase Pro, and the Gentle Yag Pro?in order to accommodate all skin types. Just as essential is the staff that wields these instruments: state-certified laser technicians and senior technicians with skin-care knowledge and the technical know-how necessary to help clients attain their beauty goals. Treatments include laser hair removal and skin tightening treatments, which can smooth out wrinkled or saggy skin. The technicians also offer eMatrix treatments, which are non-laser procedures that use radio frequency to treat scars, wrinkles, and irregularities that result from skin damage or carpooling with Icarus.
