Beauty Labs, Inc. is the collaboration of founder Shirley Sanford, a medical aesthetician with nearly 30 years of experience, and medical director Thao Nguyen, a board-certified medical doctor. Their menu of clinical-grade services ranges from eyelash extensions to removal of moles and mattress tags clinging to the face. They use lasers and cosmetic lamps to resurface skin or remove unwanted hair, and injectables and chemical peels to restore youthful looks.
Dr. Nguyen believes that beauty is most pronounced when it wells up from the inside. Beyond performing cosmetic procedures, she offers to counsel clients in eating well and coping with emotional stress, which can ravage the epidermis.
Dramatic purples and golds dust eyelids. Bold pinks and reds outline lips. Shimmering gems dangle gently from hairlines to the brow lines. These are some of the striking effects Navpreet uses to embellish faces while she's preparing brides for their special day. The multitalented hairstylist and makeup artist specializes in Indian and Arabic wedding-day makeup, creating lavish looks that especially accentuate the lips and eyes—the first place a groom looks for warning signs of a runaway bride. Aside from wedding-day makeup, Navpreet also fills in eyebrows, highlights cheekbones, and curls locks for photo shoots, prom, and other special events.
Licensed aesthetician Katy Brassfield uses all of the resources at her disposal to make sure each client achieves the paramount level of pampering. She approaches each service armed with more than 12 years of experience while beautifying her clients? skin with facials, peels, and other skincare services. Her treatment rooms are warmed with brown and gold tones, and her complimentary mugs of steaming tea allow clients to slip into a state of inner peace even as they wait. During skincare and waxing sessions, she turns the dial up on a table warmer to keeps clients as toasty and cozy as a kitten napping on the belly of a napping labrador.
For more than 15 years, aesthetician Angela Caravalho has been helping teens clear their complexions and assisting adults in their ongoing quest to maintain a smooth, youthful visage. During facials, organic, oxygen-based Knutek products deliver bacteria-fighting and blemish-belittling oxygen plasma to the skin, helping conquer acne and acne rosacea. Microdermabrasion sweeps away facial debris and donut crumbs with help from a light vacuum massage, and Angela can also help cart away excess cellulite through treatments that may include specially designed bodysuits and light therapy.
The nail technicians at Bella Piaz Salon & Spa focus on beautifying natural nails. Eschewing acrylics?and the fumes and damaging drilling that come with them?they daub their clients? fingertips with non-formaldehyde polish or CND Shellac. Elsewhere in the salon, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and adorns hair with feather and tinsel extensions. In the spa, staffers whip up customized facials to target acne and rosacea, or treat guests to other services such as waxing, aromatherapeutic massages, and spa parties for all occasions.
The aestheticians at Young Image Spa rejuvenate skin with a menu that includes facials, peels, waxing, and nail services. Vitamin C facials tackle lackluster cells loitering on the skin's surface, and peels and microdermabrasion treatments go even deeper to even out wrinkles and age spots. Young Image Spa's staff also tend to appendages with mani-pedis that employ products from OPI, CND, and Gelish, ideal for digits prone to inciting thumb wars.
