Yelena Nersesian helps guests look and feel their best with permanent-makeup applications and skin-hydrating facials. She applies permanent makeup around the eyelids to simulate eyeliner or draws on ultrafine eyebrow strokes to give the appearance of full, sculpted brows.

The licensed aestheticians at Bahia Beauty LLC embrace technology. They vanquish unwanted hair with electrolysis and laser treatments. They can also streamline makeup regimens with permanent makeup, a tattoo-like process that can eliminate the need for eyeliner, lip liner, or eyebrow pencil. The spa’s technology, however, doesn’t replace low-tech treatments—it complements them. The staff still brightens skin with organic chemical peels and uses old-school techniques—such as waxing, tweezing and threading—to reshape brows.
Advanced Medical Laser Center's owner and certified cosmetic therapist, Cindy Joshi, expertly zaps fuzz from clients with quick pulses from a GentleYag or Gentlelase laser. For darker skin types, she wields the Cynosure Apogee Elite, which includes a NdYag mode for darker skin types. During each appointment, Cindy glides the laser’s beams over skin, where it blasts more than 100 hairs per second, like an insult comedian whose childhood was ruined by one bad haircut. In addition to evicting follicular skin invaders from epidermal terrains, Cindy is experienced in microdermabrasion, licensed in micropigmentation, and certified in cosmetic therapy.
