Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services. Qualified medical staff employ the Palomar StarLux 500 laser?which is outfitted with broadband light energy, a vacuum, and a cooling system?to optimize laser hair-removal treatments and acne or anti-aging facials. Qualified medical staff administer all laser therapies and inject dermal fillers such as Botox, reassuring patients with expert medical advice about their results, aftercare, and probability of attaining immortality. The space's capacious waiting room is painted an energizing shade of lime green, and scattered sofas and oriental rugs exude a welcoming, homey feel.
Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
As its name suggests, Sierra Foothills Electrolysis specializes in using electricity to permanently clear bodies of unwanted hair. Electrolysis?the only FDA-approved treatment for permanent hair removal?uses a disposable stainless-steel probe to administer electrical currents small enough to zap off hair without damaging skin or creating beauty marks shaped like lightning bolts. Depending on the size and hair density of the treatment area, sessions can last anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours.
Skintastik crafts a winning combination of professional tools and products to prod skin into its original, youthful shape. The ultrasonic facial sends out low-frequency ultrasound waves that generate gentle water bubbles, which detect baby faces and actual babies floating beneath your visage. With no crystals or chemicals, the treatment is appropriate for acne- and rosacea-plagued skin. Three-step treatments begin as air-filled orbs go to work removing dead surface cells, dirt, and bacteria. Next, an antioxidant infusion introduces youth to lower levels of the dermis to increase collagen production, in a process akin to flooding skin's basement with marshmallows. In the final phase, microcurrent therapy uses a low-level electrical current to remind sluggish cells what they're supposed to be doing.
The laser technicians at Creekside Medical Spa carefully aim beams to remove hair, veins, and tattoos from the skin. When it comes to facial blemishes, the laser services separate into two specialized treatments: SmartSkin laser rejuvenation and IPL laser facials. The first combats hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and wrinkles, and the latter fades the effects of sun damage more effectively than moving to a dank cave for six months.
It's not all flashing lights at the spa, however. The licensed skincare professionals within also rely on skincare products from Obagi and SkinMedica to refresh certain complexions. Their customized facials address a wide range of symptoms, from dryness to acne, and the formulas used to nourish pores can also be purchased to aid at-home regimens. The spa menu is rounded out by a list of injectables, including Botox and Restylane. These products smooth out wrinkles from between the brows, around the nose, and near the mouth, leaving faces looking firm and youthful.
After 16 years in the beauty industry, cosmetologist, aesthetician, and International Reiki Master Manisha Hotpeti understands how to tailor a skincare service to meet the needs of many different skin types. As an owner of Desi Threading & More, she is able to offer a menu of services that include diverse treatments such as threading, acupressure, and reflexology. The beauty spot has been serving downtown Sacramento for the past three years and has recently opened a second location in Folsom. When Manisha isn't precisely threading eyebrows with strands of cotton thread to remove unwanted hairs, she can shape brows with wax and enhance eyes with lash extensions. Manisha's facials and peels purge clogged pores and exfoliate visages, and her henna tattoos adorn hands and arms with swirling designs and scavenger-hunt clues.
