Licensed Aesthetician, Professional Makeup Artist, and Permanent Makeup Technician Monica McKay accentuates facial features with eyebrow makeup, eyeliner, and lip color. In addition, Monica helps gussy up individuals for special occasions. Prior to each procedure, Monica meets with clients during a free consultation to obtain a clear idea of personal needs and expected outcomes. Eyeliner and lash-line enhancements provide eyelashes with either a subtle or smudgy base, and eyebrow treatments fill in thin or missing eyebrows. Permanent Makeup shortens morning pampering routines for clients so they can spend more time sleeping in or writing sonnets using leftover eyeliner pencils.
Ashley Wiese and the team of tech-savvy laser specialists at Laser & Wellness Center offer an array of services. The group's multitasking light tools optimize each client's looks by removing hair, smoothing cellulite, softening skin’s imperfections, and highlighting the takeaway points of pie charts, while the Vaser Shape machine—which was featured on The Dr. Oz Show —contours bodies without surgery. Additionally, Laser & Wellness Center offers free consultations with all of their laser services. Their non-laser services span eyelash and brow tinting, waxing, and dermal fillers that diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
Instead of just focusing on the physical, esthetician Tanya Khounphachansy incorporates a holistic approach to her work—one that has served her well for 17 years. Her belief that the body, mind, and spirit are intertwined and should be cared for equally is reflected in her selection of services. Within her tranquil confines, she wields natural products such as papaya enzymes and honey as she helps her clients de-stress and rejuvenate through facials and mani-pedis instead of throwing rocks at the windows of abandoned warehouses.
