A quick glance at Alexandra Bradley's curriculum vitae reveals an unstoppable passion for skincare: she has a master's degree in physical therapy with a specialty in medical aesthetics; she graduated with honors from the Ogle School; and she is certified by the state of Texas. In addition, as a native Brazilian, she transformed appearances by running a beauty center in her hometown of Belo Horizonte. Backed by her education and a cumulative 18 years of working with plastic surgeons and dermatologists in Brazil and the United States, Bradley clarifies and rejuvenates skin through a collection of skin therapies using pharmaceutical-grade and environmentally friendly products. With an advanced hyfrecator cauterization device, she successfully dispels veins and skin growths including skin tags, sun spots, moles, and ghost tails. She also uses advanced technologies during a collection of peels, which can deploy lasers to resurface the skin.
The skincare specialists at each independently owned and operated Facelogic follow the same mantra: to bring out the best in each client. To do this, the technicians work through a brief questionnaire and skin analysis to determine which of the menu?s 10-plus facials best suit each client's skin. Signature facials rely on Facelogic?s own Signature skincare line, which uses botanical-based formulas and advanced cosmetic and pharmaceutical combinations to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. The Elite facial covers skin with products from brands such as Peter Thomas Roth, ?minence, and Image Skincare. All facials include an arm-and-shoulder massage, and can be enhanced with a range of add-ons, including chemical peels and sonnets composed by the aesthetician.
Dr. Calderon, owner of Elite MedSpa, takes a forward-thinking approach to laser skincare technology. First impelled to pick up a laser more than a decade ago when a member of her family was diagnosed with melanoma, Dr. Calderon has sought to spread awareness of cancer prevention through laser technologies, as well as the cosmetic benefits of lasers on sun-damaged and aging skin. Dr. Calderon and her team enact more than 25 beautifying services, including laser-centric tattoo and hair removal, as well as Cool Lipo, which uses minimally invasive lasers to dissolve body fat and tighten skin. The med spa also treats acne-prone skin with FDA-approved lasers and prescriptions, and offers dozens of beauty products from its online store.
Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care and Laser Center's licensed medical professionals perform a slew of noninvasive cosmetic services. Using IPL laser energy, they eliminate patient's unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, or help them diminish the urge to smoke by directing laser beams at trigger areas, such as ears, faces, hands, or kitten tattoos. Though specializing in laser therapy, they extend their aesthetic reach into the anti-aging cookie jar, performing microdermabrasions and Botox and Restylane injections, along with proffering an array of skincare products, including BioDerm and Obagi.
“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.
Committed to styling hair without the use of scissors, razors, or chemicals, Blash Style & Lash Boutique's stylists infuse strands with Vietnamese botanicals to garner a healthy, hydrated shine while pampering scalps and complexions with relaxing beauty treatments. Stylists massage noggins with a dollop of Kim Vo shampoo customized to each client's hair type, destressing headscapes with every sudsy knead while infusing hair with hydrating Vietnamese botanicals for a smooth, luxurious result akin to that of playing a chocolate saxophone. Faces then bask in the skin-freshening custom facial cleanse, which draws upon therapeutic waters culled from the Mont Sainte-Odile springs in southern France to bring forth clear, radiant complexions. Stylists then blow-dry and style hair into natural, glamorous 'dos without the use of chemicals or rubber cement.
