At Beautiful Reflections by Barbara, Barbara boasts licensure in aesthetic services that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and eyelash extensions. But the service that really sets her apart from her aesthetic contemporaries is her skill with waxing.
Dedicating her craft to discovering the golden bullet of "painless" waxes, Barbara undertakes gentle strand-removal procedures with high-quality waxes and techniques carefully chosen over years of experience. But her specialty is Brazilian waxes, a skill that has earned her the nickname "Barbara Brazilian" by her clientele. In addition to clearing away unwanted bikini fuzz, she decorates newly smooth skin with vajazzle services, adorning down-unders with more flair than a rainbow saddle.
?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Under new management and equipped with an arsenal of medical lasers, fillers, and injectables, board-certified interventional radiologists target unwanted marks on the legs, evicting spider and varicose veins and leaving behind even skin that deserves to be flaunted. Led by Medical Director Ellen M. Yetter, MD, the team—which includes physicians, technicians, aestheticians, a medical assistant, and one domesticated chimpanzee with a heart of gold—also welcomes patients for dermal fillers, laser hair removal, massages, and facial treatments.

As a child, aesthetician Erica Engler loved going to her grandmother’s beauty salon. She'd watch the ladies walk in looking one way and eagerly awaited seeing them leave all dolled up and ready to tackle the day. She noticed that with their physical makeover came also a mental transformation of increased confidence and relaxation, inspiring her to become a makeup artist.
Along with her team, Erica strives to make women feel more attractive and less stressed. In addition to her makeup services, she smoothes complexions with facials enhanced by Dermalogica products and hand and arm massages. Armed with Satin Smooth and NuFree wax, she swiftly removes hair from faces, arms, legs, and vestigial tails with waxing services. The massage therapists soothe aches and tension with sundry techniques including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and manual lymphatic drainage. With all of their services, Erica and her team aim to send clients back to their day-to-day activities feeling refreshed and more beautiful than a shimmering butterfly fluttering through a misty rainbow.
