At Eyetopia Spa, Larevemos “Lady” Patterson and her team free women from time-consuming makeup routines by applying mink or silk eyelash extensions in a variety of styles and colors. The individual extensions adhere to lashes with a soft-drying adhesive to create one of three natural effects: mascara, dramatic, or extreme, using 45 lashes per eye. Once customers have donned lashes of their preferred material, length, curl, and fullness (some extensions measure up to a quarter millimeter in diameter), they maintain their style with fill-ins, which Lady recommends receiving every three to four weeks, unless you have reason to believe the world will be ending at dawn anyway. She'll also be donating a portion of her proceeds from her Groupon to The American Breast Cancer Society.
The expert aestheticians at Total Body Image & Skincare offer an array of services that aim to pamper and prettify faces and bodies. Their facials, for example, make use of papaya enzymes, steam, and exfoliating agents to enliven skin, as well as radio-frequency waves that work to tighten skin with noninvasive energy. The experts also use ultrasound cavitation treatments to try to reduce layers of fatty tissue.
When it comes to beauty, long eyelashes are like a secret weapon; they can appear subtle and natural, yet still attract admiring glances. At Lashes Couture, certified stylists specialize in creating that flirty, feminine look with individual extensions. Clients can also choose to go bold with signature Spellbinding lash extensions, which fan out to create a sultry, glamorous look. Stylists apply the extensions using medical-grade adhesives, working with such care that clients sometimes fall asleep during appointments. Facial waxing, brow shaping, and makeup services are also available.
At Skin Confidence, founder and licensed medical aesthetician Kat Johnson creates beautiful complexions through a combination of specialty treatments and deep relaxation. She performs each facial and skin peel with Rhonda Allison products, which replace dyes and artificial fragrances with aromatic essential oils and plant extracts. But Kat does more to boost clients’ moods than simply closing all of their pores one by one; she also helps them unload stress with reiki massage and triggers the body’s detoxification process with reflexology techniques.
The aestheticians at Laciana’s Beauty Studio treat every face as the one-of-a-kind landscape it is, customizing products and methods based on personal needs. That goes for their signature facials that target blemishes, as well as their hydration infusions and coconut and papaya enzyme peels, which give skin a softer texture. For men, Laciana’s team prepares soothing men’s facials and body scrubs with sugar crystals that restore smoothness to skin that’s been bullied for too long by wool sweaters and bear-tooth blankets.
Armed with an education from Derma Clinic Academy for Estheticians, Jeff Davis uses his skincare skill-set to make complexions look their best with modern med spa techniques. From classic cleansing facials to microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, his treatments begin with a thorough skin analysis to match each face with the right regimen. Eyelash and eyebrow tinting reduce the need for messy mascaras and a controlling interest in a permanent marker factory, while waxing treatments sculpt brows and whisk away peach fuzz.
