Certified laser technician Elizabeth Silva relies on lasers and electrology to rid clients of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal targets follicles with photons that turn into heat energy once they hit the root of the hair. Electrolysis is a more detailed approach: Elizabeth inserts a hair-thin probe into the pore that applies heat directly to the papilla—the part that nourishes the hair—or simply flips the follicle’s off switch when possible. In every case, she begins the course of treatment with a detailed assessment and consultation so that clients know what to expect. Her clinic welcomes women, men, teens, and speakers of both English and Portuguese.
Lynne Reilly?a registered electrologist, licensed aesthetician, and certified laser technician with over 17 years of experience?is a well- qualified hair removal professional. That?s why her menu builds on hair removal and salon services with 17 facial treatments that soothe skin and clear out pores with Dermologica products and techniques such as microdermabrasion, masques, and cupping. At her spa, registered and licensed aestheticians lead their clients to treatment rooms amid the salon?s chic and colorful d?cor filled with hardwood floors and modern fixtures, where these trained staff members apply their skill, knowledge and experience.
At Evolution Hair Designs, even waiting is part of the experience. Instead of sitting on an uncomfortable chair in front, customers can grab drinks and food from a nearby business or go for a stroll, and they’ll receive a text message as soon as it’s their turn in the chair. From there, the professional stylists get to work, reinventing their clients’ looks with trims and cuts, coloring, and blowouts. Evolution Hair Designs offers salon services for women, men, and children.
Salon Lux's owner is Cindy Wilson, a nail technician and reflexologist for more than three decades, who combined her dual passions into a single business where beauty and well-being blend seamlessly. This fusion produced a menu of services where trends such as feather extensions and smooth, speedy blowouts meet relaxing and rejuvenating facials that couple with aromatherapy scrubs and European or lymphatic massage. Stylists?including a graduate of Toni & Guy?also manage manes with color services, cuts, and smoothing keratin treatments, while bodies find their perfect bronze with hand-applied California spray tans that keep them safe from UV rays and winged sharks.
When not in the salon, Cindy can be found teaching classes in reflexology at the Learning Connection or volunteering at the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, where she offers reflexology for those fighting cancer.
Lasers can accomplish more than just long-lasting hair removal. At Aesthetic Laser Treatment Center, staffers depend upon them for almost every aesthetic treatment. Yes, one of those treatments is hair removal, but the list also includes diminishing cellulite and wrinkles, eliminating pigmented lesions, and downplaying the appearance of spider veins. The staffers sometimes abandon lasers all together and instead opt for dermal fillers or a chemical peel to restore skin.
The aesthetic is decidedly minimalist—a few padded leather chairs, a tasteful rug, a potted plant here and there. But the services are as complex as the decor is simple. Most services rely on some type of laser work, from sessions with the i-Lipo fat-reduction system to treatments that remove moles, hair, and spider veins. Unlike at some centers, medical director Dr. Luciano Sztulman often becomes directly involved in these treatments, except for the apple-related services that keep doctors away.
