If you call Laser & Skin Care Center of Nevada, a laser nurse will answer the phone, but not just to say hello. With just a description of your skin’s needs, he or she can prescribe the proper skincare treatment, quote a price, and answer any lingering questions you may have. These consultations, which can also be conducted in person, help fulfill the center’s mission that was set when it opened in 2004: to help patients achieve their optimal physical appearance and boost their self-esteem. Their treatments range from laser facelifts to teeth whitening to medical-grade microdermabrasions, and all of the nurses are extensively trained to man each type of laser housed in the office or on their secret moon base.
"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.

In the battle against unwanted hair, the aestheticians at Wax In The City are fully equipped to eliminate wayward follicles from a variety of bodily surfaces. Hirsute patrons can select from the bountiful menu of fuzz-removal areas, including the underarms, for more confident high-fives ($20 for women, $25 for men), or the chin, for a smoother surface on which to apply a fake beard ($8 for women, $12 for men). In a private salon room, strand-strippers can banish hair fibers from the stomach ($20), sharpen sideburns ($15 for women, $25 for men), or reinstate a curvaceous shape to eyebrows ($16 for women, $20 for men). Wax In The City's aestheticians recommend 1/4 inch of growth before each hair-harvest session to ensure a proper grip on follicles and to prevent missed hairs from forming images of Elvis.
Threading is an ancient technique for shaping eyebrows that is natural, safe, organic, and effective. Instead of slathering on harsh hair-removal creams loaded with chemicals and nickels or hot wax that can burn and abrade sensitive face skin, let the friendly eyebrow and upper-lip artists at Diva Beauty safely craft elegant arches and smooth mouths that will frame, define, and brighten a whole face. The results don't invite bumps or irritation, and a threaded mug is also less likely to experience local swelling or redness. The treatment frames, defines, and brightens the entire face until it shines like a lighthouse made out of glow sticks.
The charm and simplicity of the Maine lobster shack is heaved ashore at Georgetown's Tackle Box, which popped onto Bon Appétit's radar as one of the Best Seafood Restaurants of 2008. Just inside the door on a pocked brick wall, a weathered Old Glory greets diners as they stand before the counter's chalkboard menu to check on the day's fresh catch and wonder if sailors wear their ties in a figure-eight knot. Since Tackle Box shoulders a steadfast commitment to sustainability, each meal can vary, as cooks fry or grill the bounty of fishermen's nets that may swell with haddock or catfish.
Diners can choose smoked trout to pair with hand-cut fries or mac 'n' cheese, all of which they can enjoy at a fire-red picnic table. For an extra kick, fingers may dip fare or put out a burning dynamite fuse in a classic tartar or spicy marinara sauce.
