The medical professionals at Allure Aesthetic Associates help clients reveal their true beauty with a collection of nonsurgical skin treatments. From wrinkle fighting to hair removal, the med spa's procedures boost confidence levels via lasers and minimally invasive injections—not scalpels. The doctor guides patients on journeys to weight loss, while the aesthetic nurse specialist brings an extensive nursing background to rejuvenating treatments and spirited games of Trivial Pursuit.
Posh Salon and Gift's mission is to make hair look great and stay that way. The first part is simple enough?a trained staff offers haircuts, coloring treatments, and styling to transform any head of hair into an elegant 'do. But for the second part, the stylists use Dior?'s proprietary system?Keratherapy?designed to minimize bad hair days and keep locks disciplined and manageable. This system uses Kerabond Technology to send keratin deep into hair and seal the cuticle layer, keeping hair straight, shiny, and silky no matter if the air is humid or you ride a roller coaster to work. Posh's staff also offers a slate of mani-pedis, as well as facial waxing.
Pilar Varon—a clinical aesthetician who holds a variety of certifications—helms the eponymous Skin Care by Pilar, where she offers custom skincare treatments. Her facial treatments refresh, cleanse, and exfoliate faces and include specific services designed to combat acne or wrinkles. Hot waxes evict unwanted hair from body areas, such as the legs, arms, stomach, or brow, whereas peels rejuvenate complexions with ingredients such as papaya, vitamin c, or lactic acids.
Clique Waxing Boutique focuses almost exclusively on body waxing. The boutique's aestheticians perform several hundred Brazilian waxes each week—some completed in as little as 15 minutes—with either traditional strip wax or sensitive hard wax. For especially delicate areas, a dollop of Relax & Wax No Scream Cream dulls pain sensors and subdues hairs before they weave themselves into an organized protest. New clients are encouraged to review Clique's waxing etiquette.
On faces, the boutique's crew uproots fringe via traditional Indian threading techniques or the Anastasia brow-shaping system from Los Angeles, which includes a series of measurements that help technicians taper brows to the most face-flattering shapes, such as circles or lightning bolts.
The studio's Bohemian-style décor—with vintage furnishings, framed art, a chandelier, and ornately framed mirrors—carries over into a retail space, where guests can peruse products including paraben-free makeup and lavender-mint Dead Sea–salt scrubs from gloMinerals.
Lasers can be used to solve virtually any problem at Ultimate Vein Care. Specifically, the technicians?under the guidance of board-certified vascular surgeons?enlist three different cosmetic laser systems that provide them with the flexibility to treat various skincare conditions using minimally invasive means. By bombarding the skin with specific wavelengths of laser light energy, the technicians are able to rid clients' bodies of unsightly stubble or spider veins, and they can also improve the skin's overall tone and texture by minimizing the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. The versatility of the laser systems allows the staff to more effectively treat clients with a range of skin types. However, lasers aren't the center's only recourse for dealing with varicose or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is also an option, sealing off blood vessels with the help of very fine injections instead of microscopic strands of caution tape.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, micro needling, and botox the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
