Dr. Navjot Bajwa can meet with clients who have questions, recommend treatments, and check for contraindications at MD Laser Skin Care, a physician-operated cosmetic procedure clinic. Dr. Bajwa, who is board certified in family medicine with extensive experience in aesthetic procedures, is joined by a highly motivated team of aestheticians and nurses trained in cosmetic dermatology. In treatment rooms, aestheticians beautify complexions with Jan Marini skincare products or guide lasers over faces and bodies to vanquish blemishes, unwanted hair, and fine lines.
At Shelly's Advanced Skin Care, owner Shelly Pagnota and her team of trained and licensed aestheticians take a clinical approach to pampering their clients. This is most evident in their slate of rejuvenating facials. Aestheticians conduct nearly 15 types of facials, such as the age defense facial and the vitamin C peel and firm facial, which uses a combination of vitamins and glycolic acid to give the face a younger, firmer look. The staff adds on a chemical peel to every facial if needed, and also offers microdermabrasions and massage services.
Sylvia, the owner and Master stylist at Lash Cafe & Spa, studied cosmetology and aesthetics in Vienna, Austria. After a long stint at a premier European cosmetic company, she directed her attention to her own studio, where she now taps into her myriad skills to beautify clients' faces. Lash extensions are the marquee service, and Sylvia begins each appointment with a discussion to determine what look is most flattering for the client. She then uses silk lashes and Xtreme FlexFusion adhesive, which helps the lashes stay in place for up to 90 days, or possibly longer for those who never ever sneeze. In addition to extensions, Sylvia also offers lash tinting and shaping, as well as permanent makeup for those who want to ditch more than just their mascara wand.
“Sol” may be the Spanish word for “sun," but Earth's UV-dispensing star has no place at Sol Sunless Tanning. Instead, the salon's airbrush artists translate spritzes of color into sun-kissed glows. Bodies bask in an organic solution infused with DHA, which reacts with the skin’s amino acids to produce color. By custom mixing this formula to complement each client's skin tone, the specialists ensure that everyone leaves sporting a natural-looking shade without the harsh tones required to infiltrate Bert and Ernie's family reunion.
Ten separate rooms with misters, iPod plug-ins for speakers, aromatherapy, and, of course, UV tanning beds that resemble space pods—these are the technologies that define Sunset Tan. The high-tech salon also contains open-air spray tan booths capable of toning skin to eight different shades, with an optional setting to emphasize muscles lines and one to emphasize personality lines. Of course, the staff knows a machine doesn’t always cut it, so they offer hand-applied airbrush trans available on-location or in private residences.
