Ridding unwanted hair from clients' bodies since 1975, the skincare specialists at European Wax Center have had plenty of time to perfect the four-step waxing process. First, a specialist cleanses the skin and layers it with pre-wax oil so the wax adheres to the hair and not the skin. Next, the specialist applies exclusive EWC Comfort Wax crafted in Paris from beeswax, which is gentler to the skin than traditional wax or wax made from ground-up rocks. Finally, after the hair has been removed, a rejuvenation product is applied to freshly waxed areas, leaving behind soft, silky-smooth skin.
With a skin-savvy staff of medical professionals, glowMD pares down pileous patches with help from FDA–approved laser technology. Candela lasers are ideal for tenderly blasting away tough tufts from skin shields of all tones, types, and tints, freeing men and women from irritating razor burn and the amateur sonnets of poetic waxers. After five lightsabering sessions, most patients see significant deductions in the amount of bothersome body bristle, though results vary from patient to patient. An individual consultation helps evaluate each client's specific needs.
Nikia Haynes began her beauty career as a makeup artist, and over the years, she started to realize that many of her clients were using makeup to mask skin blemishes. So she decided to learn how to combat the causes, instead of simply covering up the symptoms.
At X-treme Beauty and Beyond, she clears skin with chemical peels, ultrasonic facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and back facials. In order to really diagnose a problem, Nikia relies on an analysis with a skin scope. This allows her to get an in-depth look at the different layers of skin and see things that might be invisible to the naked eye, such as sun damage or lip imprints left over from overly aggressive cheek kisses.
