Along with being an accomplished singer and jazz composer, Dr. Elisa S. Mashal of Laguna Laser Hair Removal & Aesthetics has practiced dermatology medicine for more than 15 years. Within the building's private treatment rooms, she and her team of trained specialists zap away tattoos, unwanted hair, and spider veins using advanced laser technology. The Candela AlexTriVantage and GentleMax laser systems pulse at varying wavelengths to zap every pigment of ink or blemish while stimulating the growth of new, healthy cells.
Dr. Mashal and her staff also conduct microdermabrasions and facials that rejuvenate visages with Rhonda Allison skincare products. To ensure that every client receives expert care, the clinic's technicians keep their skills fresh with continuing education and pop quizzes in the middle of treatments.
It should surprise nobody that Wax On Wax Off is devoted to the art of hair removal. What is surprising, however, is just how many treatments fill the menu at this strictly-waxing boutique. Hands, legs, chins, eyebrows, bikini lines, even feet?none of these areas are off-limits to the team of waxing specialists. There are even special waxing services for men (the "Bro"-zilian is an increasingly popular choice that leave skin smooth and comes with a righteous high five).
Certified electrologist Holly Pitman relies on electricity to free follicles of unwanted hair. She accomplishes this feat by inserting a fine metal probe into individual follicles—a process designed for permanent hair removal—whereby a mild electrical current destroys the hair at the root. Holding another certification in microcurrent technology, Holly also promotes smooth, wrinkle-free skin with microcurrent therapy and LED-light treatments.
Carolyn B. Melby has more certifications and licenses than she can shake a stick at?an obvious truth when you consider that she has yet to receive a certification in stick shaking. During her 30-plus years in the skincare industry, Carolyn has earned an aesthetician license, two business degrees, a certification in permanent makeup, and a license in medical laser technology in the state of Arizona. Given such a broad skill set, her similarly wide selection of services comes as little surprise to her clients. Of her many talents, Carolyn most often works with aging, acne-prone, or hyperpigmented skin?conditions that she diligently treats with high-end services such as microdermabrasion, skin-rejuvenation therapy, and permanent makeup applications.
All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest brow brush, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During an eyebrow wax, skin is thoroughly cleaned, a soothing oil is applied, hairs (one-quarter of an inch minimum length) are plucked, and a post-treatment coating of either ingrown-hair serum or body lotion encourages skin revival. This deal also includes a 20% discount on all retail items, and first-time guests receive a free eyebrow, underarm, or bikini-line waxing, with the option of upgrading to a Brazilian bikini wax for $19.50.
A spa is never greater than the sum of its parts. It takes a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and stylists to carry out the services that keep clients beautiful, relaxed, and healthy. At Fuzion Skin & Body, this truth reflects the staff's belief in a holistic, integrated approach?making each service as much about wellness as beauty. The spa?s facials, for example, improve both the health and appearance of skin with custom cleansing, exfoliation, and masks, while sessions of reiki, reflexology, and other body treatments help balance energy and remove toxins. Of course, Fuzion Skin & Body offers purely aesthetic services such as sugaring, too, promoting wellness by helping clients avoid the impulse to cover their bodies with glitter glue.
