Kat Cabrera is a Licensed Master Aesthetician/Mentor at Advanced Skin Care Center and Medspa with more than 20 years of experience in the skincare industry. She spent the better part of 2002?2014 working in a salon environment and owning her own private studio. As a professional makeup artist, she also focuses on eyebrow design through tinting, waxing, and dermaplaning.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
Though a staff of more than 25 people swarms around Bella Salon & Spa’s 4,000-square-foot space, the services they perform are always personal. A smile, a wink, and an individual style consultation always greet salon-goers at the outset, before a savvy stylist—armed with Bumble and bumble and L’Oreal Paris products—primps strands with Balmain extensions, ombre highlights, and Brazilian Blowouts.
Elsewhere in the wood accented two-story shop, dedicated aestheticians can be found beautifying bodies with Nufree wax and Dermalogica skincare products. Facials hinge on customizable serums that can combat a range of skin issues, including sun damage, teen acne, clogged pores, and atrophied dimples.
Beyond Belle Vie Salon?s brick fa?ade, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and texturizes hair at marble-topped styling stations. Honey-colored hardwood floors line the studio?s interior, creating an elegant backdrop where clients can sit back, relax, and count backwards from 1,000 as the styling team performs a slew of hair and waxing services.
For the over six years it has been open, the tools of the hair-removal trade have remained simple at Anjuthreads. A bit of baby powder here, some Aveda toner to close pores there. And the most important item in the aestheticians' toolkit: pure cotton thread from India. Thread in hand, one of Anjuthreads' experts twists and rolls over the unwanted hair?gently removing it from the skin like a farmer harvesting the world's tiniest, hairiest crop of corn. This ritual unfolds across the face and neck, with attention paid to the sensitivity of skin.
And now, if the client prefers it, the salon can now turn to wax to help remove hair. The newly-launched waxing line uses natural, 98% organic wax from Italy to remove hair, immersing follicles with a deluge of warm wax before gently zipping the area clean without a strip.
