Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services. Qualified medical staff employ the Palomar StarLux 500 laser?which is outfitted with broadband light energy, a vacuum, and a cooling system?to optimize laser hair-removal treatments and acne or anti-aging facials. Qualified medical staff administer all laser therapies and inject dermal fillers such as Botox, reassuring patients with expert medical advice about their results, aftercare, and probability of attaining immortality. The space's capacious waiting room is painted an energizing shade of lime green, and scattered sofas and oriental rugs exude a welcoming, homey feel.
When it comes to eyebrows, there's no one-size-fits-all approach?the ideal shape varies depending on the proportions of the face. At Eyebrow Arts, a threading specialist draws on her deep knowledge of aesthetics to create sleek brows that enhance the unique beauty of each client's face. She removes stray hairs by skillfully lassoing them with a loop of thread; she can use this same thread to clear away fuzz from the upper lip and chin. Henna artistry is another specialty here, and it's especially popular among brides desiring intricate designs or exclamation points to express how happy they are.
SkiNplicity’s aesthetician De Ana Fritz brings more than a decade of skincare experience to her treatment of overly dry, oily, or hirsute exteriors. The one-hour European facial commences with a client consultation to craft a specialized strategy for shucking a worn-out face husk. A change into a clean gown protects vestments from spotting, while an optionally heated bed protects back muscles from tension. After cleansing, exfoliating, purifying, massaging, and de-gunking with an individualized masque, a hydrating spritz and SPF cream guard visages against the sun and its plot to turn the earth into a cache of human jerky.
Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread?s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
Conversations with strangers usually don't lead to newfound good looks, unless those strangers are the amiable sextet helming Vanity Lounge Beauty Boutique. Amid lavender-hued walls and potted orchids, the stylists involve each client thoroughly in the beautification process, discussing individual aesthetic wishes at length before delving into any procedure or genie-bottle rubdown. As the professional prettifiers work, they instruct clients on how to re-create new looks at home, sharing wisdom gained in training from Goldwell and Sebastian.
Walking past the kaleidoscopic ranks of bottles from brands such as Sebastian, Crew, and Number 4 lining the walls, patrons reach a range of boutique accessories such as jewelry, clutches, and hair doodads. Excited chatter drifts back and forth between the stylists and guests planning private beauty parties, which include refreshments and hair dryers trained to drown out dull stories.
