Nurse practitioner Olga Voloshina and her team of aestheticians divide their services into three categories, though all three serve the same purpose: to enhance the appearance of skin. The medical-grade facial services do so traditionally, with the help of cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliation in the form of peels and microdermabrasion that are individually customized for each client. The laser and light treatments help clear up conditions such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage. They also administer injectables such as Botox and Juverderm to smooth out wrinkles on the skin's surface. Of course, before beginning any procedure, a staff member consults with each client to devise the proper treatment plan for the client's skin woes.
At North Creek Medicine, Dr. Mark Swyer and his trained staff treat the body both inside and out with their range of health and beauty services. Laser technicians harness the dual power of the elôs system, which uses radio and light frequencies to gently, yet effectively, eliminate unwanted hair and diminish rosacea, spider veins, and other epidermal flaws. The team also welcomes the entire family into their care for gunnysack races and preventative medical screenings. Aside from physical wellbeing, the center cares for mental health with psychiatric counseling for adults and teens.

Wax On has been offering stellar strand-stripping services to discerning hair producers since 1999 from its fun spa environment. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen maidens at Wax On. Like the helpful, friendly staff chants during their pre-day huddle—if it has hair, it can be made bare. The careful and pleasant purveyors of slickness will use their years of experience and connection with the dark side to target overgrown sprouts and diligently bid them adieu. Put your best face forward for your next photo shoot or photo firing squad with a lip ($15) or eyebrow ($15) wax. Otherwise, opt for a full leg ($50) or Brazilian ($70) treatment to improve your hydrodynamics during a summer of late-night skinny-snorkeling. The waxery also harvests hair from the skin of self-conscious gents looking to quietly rid their neck ($20), chest ($25), or bikini zone ($45) of unwelcome sasquatch fur.
After serving in the United States Air Force for nine years, co-owner Jaymie Larsen decided to pursue a career that would allow her to reclaim her feminine side and indulge her passion for beauty. After graduating from the Euro Institute of Skin Care, she dove into a lash-extension course and knew she wanted to open a business where she could concentrate on building better blinks for eyes of all shapes and sizes.
At the same time, aesthetician and fellow Euro Institute graduate Athena Nazarian was gaining experience working as a consultant for Christian Dior and honing her skills at a Pro Sports Club spa, where she specialized in medical skincare treatments, makeup, waxing, and eyelash extensions. After opening her own lash boutique, Lashes by Athena, she soon found herself with more clients than she could handle, leading her to partner with Jaymie on a brand new venture.
Today at Eye Candy, the duo combine their attention-getting expertise to plump up lash lines with synthetic strands that are naturally curved to mimic the natural lashes. They also foster smoother skin with 30-minute Jessner peels and facial waxing, flatter features with professional makeup, and even lead lessons for makeup novices or those raised by clowns.
