Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
After years sewing funky, girly clothing for her young daughter, Lisa Jamieson began to sell her creations online, founding the business that would become The Tutu Boutik. Colorful leg warmers, flowered headbands, and the boutique's namesake tutus line shelves and fill racks throughout the boutique's pink and zebra-striped space inside the Boulevard Mall. A licensed cosmetologist, Jamieson also makes over petite patrons' hair, faces, and nails alongside staff in the spa, forgoing techniques such as cuticle trimming that might be unsafe for tiny digits. A make-your-own-lip-gloss station grants visitors the chance to craft their own sparkly solutions, and a pink catwalk mural encourages two-dimensional guests to work the runway.
Recently featured in Entrepreneur magazine, Vanessa Williams founded The Flawless Group to free up time for busy folks through luxury-concierge and mobile-spa services. As a concierge, Vanessa can take care of day-to-day errands including arranging travel plans, picking up the dry cleaning, and chauffeuring clients around town in a luxury car or adult-size stroller. As a licensed aesthetician, her spa services can take the edge off of workaday stress with massage therapy, meditation, and facials. Whether an individual, corporate entity, or educational institution, each of Vanessa's clients saves time and might become superhuman.
The staff at New Image harnesses laser technology, noninvasive peels, and injectable treatments to smooth skin and combat signs of aging from various body parts. Armed with the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, they work to reduce corporeal circumferences, or using Smoothbeam lasers, they zap away sun spots, acne, and wrinkles. Their new Vaser Shape treatment uses ultrasound to smooth and firm the body by reducing the appearance of cellulite. Other cosmetic technologies, such as microdermabrasions and teeth whitening LED lights, work to brighten dull or coffee-coated surfaces.
At Synergy Salon & Spa, aesthetician Victoria Rebmann tends to her clients' expressions with facial services that range from emphasizing natural ingredients to using scientifically based chemical solutions. The express facial slides neatly into packed schedules and lunch breaks, carving out a petite oasis of pampering by cleansing and exfoliating the visage in just 30 minutes. Victoria customizes the fundamental facial to address each face's tone, blemishes, and unsolved sudoku tattoos. During the treatment, Rebmann executes deeper exfoliation and cleansing than in the express service, taking a full hour to polish kissers to a fine sheen.
The certified aesthetician at Your Face and Place smooth bikini areas with a natural blend of sweet ingredients, and rejuvenates faces with a smoothing peel. The honey-like depilatory glazes nether regions with a concoction of sugar, lemon juice, and water before pulling it back to reveal hairless skin and forgotten unicorn tattoos. By grabbing follicles from the roots, the sugaring method removes hair with less pain than traditional wax. The spa aesthetician lends cosmetic expertise and her favorite mix tapes to faces in a glycolic resurfacing, which lifts away the appearance of sun spots and lines with a gentle 70 percent glycolic acid.
