"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Skin & Wellness Clinic’s team of aestheticians devises medically based treatments to boost the health and aesthetic appeal of the body’s first line of defense: the skin. These medical facials and body treatments combat aging with skin-firming injectables, exfoliating dermal peels, and laser wrinkle reduction. When they aren’t pointing their lasers at patches of furrowed skin, the aestheticians harness the high-energy beams to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and age spots. Before every laser treatment or organic facial, a computerized skin analysis spots damage invisible to the naked eye and suggests which stocks to buy or sell based on your unique constellations of freckles.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
The stylists, cosmetologists, and nail technicians at The Mirror Mirror Salon begin each appointment with one goal in mind: to make you the fairest one of all. These women?and one man?combine expert training with a true passion for beauty. But all of that would be for naught if they didn't listen to what their clients want and try their best to make it happen. Thankfully, listening is a valued skill here, meaning everyone gets to leave with the look of their dreams.
The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
Horizon Ridge offers a serene and professional environment for partaking in cosmetic services, with Dr. Garry R. Lee, the doctorate-wielding medical director, at the helm. Following a free consultation, unsightly spider veins will shrink from the skin’s surface during the course of three 15-minute treatments. In each treatment session, Dr. Lee injects vein-afflicted thighs and lower legs with hypertonic salt water, a sterile brine that safely and effectively shrinks spider veins and is highly coveted by compulsively neat flounders. Clients may opt to don a pair of class II compression hose (for an additional fee) during the approximately five-week intervals between treatments to ensure the complete thwarting of the offending arachnoid capillaries.
