The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.

Though they seem made for a professional partnership, it wasn't fate that brought the team of Dr. Theda C. Kontis and Dr. Ira D. Papel together. It was years of hard work and dedication. After earning an M.D. from Wake Forest University, Dr. Kontis completed a residency and fellowship at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, then went on to become an expert in performing eyelid rejuvenation, brow lifts, and facelifts. Dr. Papel knows the name Johns Hopkins as well. It was where he completed his residency and now serves as an associate professor?that is, when he's not working alongside Dr. Kontis at Facial Plastic Surgicenter.
Here, the doctors lead a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, along with other medical professionals who work to help clients boost their self-esteem and turn back the signs of aging. Visits typically begin with a consultation, in which patients work closely with a doctor or other professional?such as expert medical aesthetician Jeannine Stevens. From there treatment plans can take myriad routes that might include dozens of services, from laser hair and tattoo removal to Botox. In other cases, the surgeons might be called on to perform rhinoplasty or eyelid surgery, but the end goal is always the same: making people look as good as they feel.
Modern technology and holistic mindsets are equally valued by Nora Holloway. After personally struggling with the blemishes and outbreaks caused by acne, Nora decided to learn as much as she could about skincare and skin maintenance. She eventually decided to put this knowledge to work by becoming a licensed aesthetician and founding Holistic Solutions. Instead of allowing her expertise to rely on experience and past education alone, Nora routinely seeks out training with the latest advancements in the skincare industry. This willingness to embrace new techniques and new technologies allows Nora to better accomplish her goal of offering customized treatments tailored to each client.
Advanced technology figures prominently into many of the services at Holistic Solutions. Ultrasonic microdermabrasion systems smooth out the skin's texture, and pulses of light and heat energy can help fade hyperpigmented blemishes ranging from sun spots to especially stubborn temporary tattoos. Even when performing more traditional facials, waxing services, and chemical peels, the team still customizes every facet of the treatment in order to ensure the most dramatic results possible.
