The Ibrow Studio’s owner and senior aesthetician, Nicole Willis, has been honing her techniques since 1999, and has grown so proficient that she shares them in workshops at the studio and on KSBI’s All About You. Willis’s specialty lies in the artful clearing and shaping of body hair using the NuFree soy hair-removal system. Although the substance resembles wax, it remains at a comfortable 98.6 degrees and fights bacteria as Willis smoothes it on to shape elegant eyebrows or tidy the bikini line. Her nimble hands further enhance eyes with Reese Robert eyelash extensions, and her expertise with makeup contouring and seamlessly integrating tiny gargoyles into evening looks reflect her interest in enhancing facial architecture overall. A skin analysis helps the team tailor facials to each skin type, and complimentary aromatherapy turns body scrubs and wraps into multisensory indulgence.
Physicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists all lend their respective talents to Jon'Ric International Medical Spa, helping put clients at ease and address their health and wellness concerns. Armed with an el?s cosmetic-laser system, injectable dermal fillers, and fractional skin-resurfacing technology, the medical staffers use their extensive training to halt Father Time?s wrinkling rampage. Massage therapists employ everything from hot stones to deep-tissue modalities to soothe stress-laden musculature. To uproot hairs, aestheticians use hard and strip waxes, sugaring techniques, and Nufree applications, which can gently remove unwanted fuzz from sensitive skin or easily bruised peaches.
Since receiving her board certification in 2000, Dr. Gina L. Ressler has been exploring and implementing advanced techniques, including minimally invasive skin-tightening procedures. In addition to being well versed in cosmetic injections such as Botox, Juv?derm, and Radiesse, Dr. Ressler possesses extensive experience in skin rejuvenation and tightening with Accent technology's radio-frequency thermotherapy. And for niche needs, Dr. Ressler calls upon Melissa Knight, a certified medical micropigmentologist who can apply permanent makeup, eliminating the need to wash your face before going to bed or beginning a pie-eating contest.
Spa director and licensed aesthetician Mary Paydar brings two decades of European skincare experience to her spa, which resembles something of a tropical paradise replete with muted walls, potted plants, and sprawling vines. Her technicians refresh patrons with individual or packaged facials, massages, and makeup treatments and cultivate a relaxing environment by taking their time with services rather than hastily launching makeup towards faces with a trebuchet.
The Loft's team of hair whisperers coaxes combative manes into more manageable strands using the plant-derived Brazilian Blowout Zero formula. Stylists coat frizzy wires in the potion to lock in amino acids, smoothing tresses and fortifying them against injury during rounds of Twister in the dark. As the formula deep-conditions and de-frizzes during the course of about two hours, clients relax in the salon's upbeat space, where modern art and quirky décor play off the walls' calming blues and warm tones. Hair stays sleek for up to 12 weeks, enabling clients to spend less time flattening down morning frizz and more time perfecting impressionistic paintings with jam on toast.
