Doctors Weight Loss & Spa’s roster of physicians, captained by Dr. Ban Mechael, restores faces to youthful vigor with 30-minute, minimally invasive procedures. Twenty units of Botox render wrinkle-causing muscles inactive with miniscule shots, shooing away crow’s-feet and unfurrowing areas of the face that prevent skin from being as smooth as a stone bust of Barry Manilow. The beauty-boosting injection reaches its aesthetic potential within days and results generally last up to four months. Alternatively, Juvederm injections remedy wrinkles caused by loose skin with a specially formulated gel designed to smooth out epidermal expanses. Clients often experience mild swelling and tenderness following the treatment, but seven days of rest usually restores faces to fine fettle. Juvederm’s effects are noticeable immediately and usually last for up to a year, keeping faces absent of wrinkles like a shar pei's bizzaro-world twin.
Under the shear-wielding guidance of owner Tracy, stylists at Barbee's Beauty Boutique redesign coifs at teal stations stenciled with delicate white flowers. In addition to face-flattering cuts, they also revamp manes with rich single-process hues, frame features with highlights and lowlights, and add volume with hair extensions and industrial-strength bicycle pumps. Smoothing keratin treatments combat frizz semipermanently, leaving hair silky and manageable. Extending the pampering to other keratin-based areas, nail technicians gussy up appendages with manicures and pedicures.
For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading?an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
