The aestheticians at Bellagio Esthetic Beauty Center zap unwanted hair with a LightSheer Diode Laser to progressively reduce unwanted growth over the course of six sessions. Nimble technicians can streamline YMCA dance movements by smoothing underarms (a $700 value) or the lower arms and hands (a $1,150 value). Beams can also curve around faces to subtract fur from other small areas such as the chin (a $600 value), upper lip (a $450 value), and eyebrows (a $150 value), or help keep bodies eternally beach-ready by smoothing out a bikini line (a $900 value). Lasers can also pan across larger areas, ridding a client’s full legs (a $2,350 value) or chest (a $900 value) of unsightly follicle foliage.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Fusion Medical Spa operates under the supervision of Dr. Ayoub Sayeg, and its services reflect this clinical pedigree. Often, treatments make use of high-tech equipment, such as lasers that attack hair at the follicle level and microdermabrasion wands that rid faces of dead skin cells. Permanent makeup for the eyes, lips, and other features draws out the natural beauty in clients or the fading marker-faces of coconuts.
For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading?an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
Helmed by a husband-and-wife team, the staff at Eternally Young Clinic offers several avenues by which clients may attain younger, healthier appearances. Doctors can minimize the appearance of forehead creases and crow’s-feet with Botox injections, and they use other dermal fillers to carry that smoothness down to the cheeks and lips. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels resurface complexions victimized by sun damage and blemishes, revealing the smoother skin hiding just underneath. But beauty does not begin and end at the chin, which is why the clinic offers full-body treatments such as laser hair removal and i-Lipo—a body-contouring treatment that helps clients slim down without undergoing surgery or hula-hooping cross country.
In the 1980s, Preston Jackson Sr. and his wife Anna had a vision to equip women from all walks of life with the tools and skills necessary for a career in cosmetology, manicuring, and aesthetics. In the spirit of that inclusive philosophy, Preston and Anna didn't just open a beauty school here in the United States?they also opened the first ever beauty school in the West African nation of Togo. Two decades after that illustrious beginning, the institution known today as P&A Scholars is not just a certified beauty school, it's also a place where clients can get professional-level hair, nail, or skin treatments from supervised senior students before they graduate to work their magic in high-end salons or the wig rooms of the rich and famous.
