At Laser Skin Beautiful, Dr. Alan M. Burke and his staff slow the progress of Father Time with a mix of orthopedic and cosmetic services. On the surface, they can remove wrinkles using vampire face-lifts and Botox injections. Meanwhile, for less visible signs of aging, such as tendon or ligament injuries, they can prescribe platelet-rich plasma therapy, a nonsurgical procedure that uses the patient's own blood to speed the healing process. And, rounding out the services are a number of pulsating laser treatments that are ideal for removing spider veins and tattoos from the skin.
More than three decades ago, Pearl Bailey-Anderson started styling hair in her home, and it wasn't long before two experienced beauticians—her grandmothers—convinced her it was time to open her own salon. The masterminds behind La Pearl Beauty Emporium uses their nimble fingers to shape braids, locs, and twists, and uses proteins, moisturizers, and oils to condition and smooth hair. Chic cuts and full and partial weaves let patrons go as cropped or long as they want to. La Pearl also staffs a certified hair loss professional and trichologist that offers free microscopic hair and scalp analysis.
The team of hair restorers at Keystone Hair take a non-surgical approach to solving baldness. Rather than relying on lasers that can fail or toupees that can be plucked off by low-flying pterodactyls, the team customizes a thin membrane of semi-permanent hair that, once affixed, blends in seamlessly with existing hair. Clients can swim, shower, and style their new locks, which are designed to last up to six weeks.
Salon Pasca's dedicated staff of professional stylists beautify patrons with a full range of salon services. To eliminate frizz and tame tresses for easy styling, opt for the botanical keratin treatment ($300). With a protein-rich serum and the wave of a magic hot-iron wand, the keratin treatment restructures, relaxes, and reconditions hair fibers. The resulting smooth 'do reduces the need for morning hair-styling, freeing time for other traditional antemeridiem pursuits, such as sausage-link stacking and throwing night rocks at the sun.
For the staff at Nail Division, manicures and pedicures are an art form. While they perform traditional nail services, they also punch up digits with acrylic nails in a cornucopia of designs, such as glitter, flowers, and multihued stripes. Meanwhile, nail piercings add intrigue to fingers and complement the widespread trend of earlobe polishing.
