The licensed cosmetologists at Skin Fashion & Threading Bar have mastered the art of eyebrow threading, receiving training in both the United States and Asia. With a twisting motion, they use a cotton thread to remove unwanted hair from areas across the face. The experts also administer other beauty treatments, including facials, eyebrow tinting, and henna tattoos.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's staff beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers. Sun damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. Their lasers also power tattoo removal services, which free skin from unwanted ink. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too.
Organic wax imported from Brazil helps the licensed aestheticians at Blushing Brazilian Beauty remove unwanted body hair. They clear away fuzz on men and women from areas that include backs, legs, tails, and eyebrows.
Any preconceived notions about laser clinics being cold, sterile places would be decimated upon walking into Sedo Laser. Not only is the space comfortably furnished with tufted velvet banquettes, mod white lamps, and cushy blankets on the treatment beds, but owner Misti is committed to building a warm, caring staff who are probably not robots disguising as humans. These certified laser technicians perform three types of treatments, including removal of hair and spider veins. Many of the Sedo staff claim the photofacial as their favorite service, one that helps fade hyperpigmentation, reduce pore size, and encourage collagen production.
Though her skin- and body-care treatments may seem comparable to those found at a traditional spa, aesthetician Samantha Smith strives for clinical rather than superficial results with each service. The owner and head aesthetician at Elite Skin Solutions continually furthers her beauty know-how through ongoing education: after completing a 750-hour esthetology program in 2010, she enrolled in a nursing program so that she could offer clients the latest med-spa services. Her treatments—which include facials, chemical peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts—rely on physician-grade products and innovative technologies such as microcurrents, microskin needling, and PCA Skin products to produce optimal results with minimal downtime.
The Threading Studio's owner, Sunita Singh, described her ancient hair-removal method to the Star-Telegram as something that requires an artist's keen interest and eye for design, adding "I'm very picky." Singh learned threading in her hometown of Bangalore, India, and has honed her dexterity for more than five years. With a single cotton thread, expert brow sculptors whisk out entire rows, shaping elegant, smooth arches and working on a grid pattern to nab unwanted follicles from delicate facial skin. NBC 5 reported that Singh can complete an eyebrow session in less than two minutes, and that the process is suitable for individuals who use retinoid creams for acne or aging.
