Tashi Brow & Skin Studio's seasoned aesthetician unearths natural beauty by waxing, threading, and plucking eyebrows into shape. In an initial consultation, Seung Szczechowski pencils in proposed arches designed to complement face outlines and kicks off a 30-minute overhaul of forehead fringe. Seung shares brow-design tips as she snares wayward hairs in thread or wax and then tidies up symmetrical brows with tweezers to leave façades sleek and balanced. A lip waxing grants mouths aerodynamic appeal or the quick-talking capacity of a cheetah auctioneer. Patrons with an eye on upkeep can make a return appearance at the pristine studio for a 15-minute touchup to ocular awnings.

Dr. Jeff Angobaldo goes out of his way to personally meet with every person who comes into Renaissance Plastic Surgery, whether they're considering a nip, tuck, or Botox. At other clinics these consultations are often performed by a physician’s assistant or scarecrow in a lab coat, but Dr. Angobaldo believes in the importance of getting to know his patients and understanding their beauty goals. He’s able to whittle away unwanted bulges with liposuction and put sagging features back into place with eyelid lifts and full facelifts. In his spare time, he offers his pro bono services to under-privileged patients in need of reconstructive work and travels to locales such as Bolivia and Haiti to donate his medical expertise to humanitarian efforts.
