At Darcy’s Beauty Solutions, Darcy, a medical aesthetician, combats wrinkles with an array of antiaging injectables: Botox, Juvederm, Perlane, and Dysport. However, she is more than a medical aesthetician—she is also a certified laser technician who can rejuvenate faces with fractional laser skin resurfacing. During the treatment, the laser’s beams shatter into microbeams, which noninvasively alleviate burn scars and shrink large pores. To round out her selection, Darcy stocks a variety of skincare products, which range from oil-free makeup remover to a pH-balanced glycolic mud cleanser.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
The certified laser technicians at What Were You Inking? wield an Astanza YAG laser to undo tattoos inked in any color. After an initial assessment determines the proper course of treatment for tats of up to 10 square inches, staffers choose one of three light wavelengths to tackle and break up pigment during each 15-minute treatment. Most tattoos typically disappear after 5–10 treatments, depending on the image’s age, the type of ink used, and whether it was professionally created or drawn on using a half-melted Kit Kat. Clients typically experience little discomfort, and side effects are mild and may include temporary redness or swelling. What Were You Inking? answers additional client questions online on its FAQ page.
When Mona Borden founded Mona's Dermatherapy in 2003, she assembled a staff with diverse areas of expertise in medical-grade skin treatments and spa and beauty services. Borden learned to treat acne, acne scars, rosacea, and aging-related complaints with frozen skin stem cells at the DNA Institute in Ventura, California for cryostem cell therapy, and addresses similar skin conditions with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. As a professional permanent-makeup artist, Borden highlights natural facial features and saves Gene Simmons impersonators the trouble of reapplying grease paint before every trip to the grocery store. Mona's Dermatherapy’s medical doctors oversee Botox and Juvederm injections and Zerona body-contouring treatments, and aestheticians perform beauty services such as facials and waxes.
