Just as the name suggests, Quick Slim Vegas helps clients whittle away inches fast with its noninvasive lipo-laser treatments. During the treatments, laser light penetrates down to the fat cells in problem areas such as the hips, arms, abdomen, and thighs. The light creates temporary perforations in the fat cells' membranes, causing them to release their fatty acids and glycerol into the body and shrink. The body eventually flushes away the expelled fat-cell contents or burns them for energy, processes that are enhanced by sessions on whole-body-vibration machines.
The treatments can help clients quickly lose inches and require no downtime. They are so relaxing that many clients recline and read, listen to music, quilt, or nap while the lasers get to work.
Sexy Vegas Skin is designed to help people both look and feel good with face, body, and wellness services that promote confidence, well-being, and positive lifestyle changes. Nutrition counseling facilitates weight loss through healthy eating habits, while less willpower-intensive Zerona treatments contour the body by removing excess fat. Chemical peels, Fraxel skin resurfacing, and injectables that add more volume or impede muscle activity all work to make skin as smooth as a dolphin just back from the barbershop. Founder Dr. Sean Su, a former doctor of internal and family medicine and gynecology, leads a staff of four who frequently treat reality-TV stars and Vegas headliners, and his wife, Dr. Suzie Su, operates a dental clinic next door.
It looks like something that a mad doctor might have in his lab, but the SX-4000 Pro microcurrent machine is simply a skin-tightening phenomenon praised by the likes of Vogue and Rachael Ray. At Vanity Body Sculpting, skilled technicians strap the machine around their clients, allowing it to cast its electrical magic via positive and negative microcurrents. The currents infiltrate and energize cells, resulting in skin that appears tighter and smoother. Cellulite dimples, for instance, disappear, and some clients even report inches in weight loss. Aesthetic benefits aside, the SX-4000 Pro machine can also alleviate pain throughout the treatment session and promote lymphatic drainage.
Lisa Reyes brings more than the necessary credentials to FaceInk, sporting certification in permanent-makeup application and instruction alongside licenses in cosmetology and aesthetics. At her salon, Reyes enhances natural beauty with tattoo-like eyeliner, lip liner, and brow fillers that can shorten daily primping rituals or correct asymmetrical features and sparse eyebrows. The tech takes skin tone and eye color into account to guide clients toward flattering color palettes and looks, but ultimately leaves the final decision to the customer or the customer’s talking mirror. Reyes enlists a trusted two-step process for each one- to two-hour procedure, requiring touchup visits within 10 weeks of the first procedure.
Aesthetician Mimi Shihady boasts a roster of specialized skills. She flourishes performing the basics?facials and waxes?but also excels at nuanced services, such as eyelash tinting and microdermabrasion. "My favorite part of the job is always learning new things to improve my skills," she said.
During treatments, she shares her know-how by narrating each step. "I like to educate my clients on what I am doing and what they can do on their own to take care of their face and body." When treatments come to an end, Mimi occasionally extends the pampering just a bit longer with the reading of Goodnight Moon.
