Vanessa Nockein-Yelenich pursues dual careers as the technical advisor for Schwarzkopf Professional ? which produces a high-end line of color products ? and the head of Salon Nouveau. She oversee a diverse staff that includes dedicated manicurist Chantel Rasmussen. Rasmussen polishes and sculpt nails on fingers and toes, often finishing her treatments with a coat of Gellish polish, known for its bright colors and durability even when kickboxing in open-toed shoes.
The trained staff at Tan Las Vegas helps clients navigate three levels of UV beds and several spray-tanning options to craft a bronzing regime that best suits their skin type and desired results. UV tanning allows clients to build a base or maintain an existing tan in 12, 15, or 20 minutes. Automated VersaSpa booths alternate pigmented mists with drying jets to build a golden glow in less than one minute, with results that last for seven days—or longer if encased in amber. Technicians can also apply custom shades by hand with an airbrush system, which imparts a natural-looking, streak-free color that flatters bodily contours.
Lori Lewis knows what it's like to struggle with acne, because she wrestled against breakouts when she was an adolescent. Now, as an aesthetician and the owner of Nu Bella Skin Care, she happily comes to the aid of epidermises suffering from acne, hyperpigmentation, and melasma. She also wields products that help amend a face’s wrinkles, lines, and outdated subway maps. Her menu includes facials that boost collagen, cleanse pores, and moisturize dry skin, as well as diamond dermabrasion and chemical peels. For example, Lori renders the pumpkin peel, an exfoliating treatment that can leave faces looking younger. When she isn't beautifying exteriors with her extensive range of facial services, Lori prunes them with brow and Brazilian waxing.
Beauty and science converge at Circuit Med Spa + Salon, where medical doctors and registered nurses turn back the clock with a range of anti-aging treatments. Botox injections and Formostar slimming body wraps stand out on a menu that also includes laser scalp therapy and platelet-rich plasma treatments, the latter of which may reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin damage. After your med-spa treatment, head over to the professional salon, where licensed stylists create flattering looks and collect clippings to aid the doctors' efforts to clone the perfect haircut.
The experienced aestheticians of Vanity Skin Studio beautify bodies with a variety of services in their elegant studio space. Patrons can bronze bodies with an Infinity Sun custom airbrush tan in light, medium, or dark tones, each ranging from mild shades to hues as intense as a postmodern-poetry major. The hydrating formula coats outer selves in a fine mist for even coverage that lasts for up to 10 days. Undergarments are optional during the spray-tan session, which takes approximately 10 minutes, with an additional five minutes of drying time. Alternatively, unburden unmentionable areas of follicular inhabitants with a Brazilian wax. Wax wizards can complete the hair removal in approximately 15 minutes, which is exactly how long it takes to find one’s reflection in an industrial vat of wax. For the procedure to be most effective, clients should have at least 1/4 inch of hair growth.
