Licensed aesthetician Erica Munoz, owner of Spa Catalina, helms a staff of beauty maestros, who conduct a symphony of skin-sprucing treatments. Erica has studied under Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified doctor and frequent guest on Good Morning America. And Spa Catalina's laser technicians each achieved national certification in laser technology before they began setting to work removing unwanted hair or etching their initials in the moon. Laser hair-removal treatments toast follicular pigment with intense light energy, shutting down strand-production factories without harming the surrounding tissue. When they aren't zapping epidermises, Spa Catalina's experts mollycoddle visages with facials, ease the appearance of aging through microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, and swaddle corpuses in relaxing body wraps.
The team at Ageless Reflection Medspa and Wellness Center, which includes a board-certified doctor and licensed aesthetician, enhances its clients' beauty with a retinue of cosmetic treatments. Botox and Juvederm fillers restore the skin's smooth, youthful appearance, while IPL skin rejuvenation, medical microdermabrasions, and chemical peels call upon state-of-the-art technologies and NeoStrata skincare products to chase away various imperfections. Staff members harnesses the power of the FDA-approved eMax laser system to usher away unwanted body hair, and they help clients shed pounds by providing nutritional counseling, customized weight-loss plans, and purèed cauliflower disguised as ice cream.
Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
Aesthetics by Prescription diminishes dermal defects through the able hands of Mary Dugan, a board-certified family nurse practitioner with more than 10 years of experience. Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive procedure that gently exfoliates skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer and revealing the candy-coated disco ball hiding just underneath. Stripping dry skin scales in a similar fashion, chemical peels act as facial zambonies, gently smoothing the skin’s texture, and helping correct sun, acne, and age damage by buffing away outer layers in mere minutes. After either treatment, patients may notice a dissipation of fine lines, age spots, pigmentation irregularities, and temporary tattoos, trading in maligned mugs for smoother, more even facial plains.
The Swanson Center?helmed by Dr. Eric Swanson, a certified plastic surgeon?is home to advanced technology, products from coveted brands, and, perhaps most importantly, trained and experienced staff members. Here, Aesthetician Nicki uses her 18 years of experience to help clients take advantage of the clinic's resources by brightening faces with services such as MegaPeel microdermabrasions as well as several different types of chemical peels and masques. Her signature tightening, detoxifying, and lifting face and neck treatment (TDL) ignites skin with a youthful glow. In addition to tummy tucks and breast lifts, the staff offers less-invasive services, including Botox injections and laser hair removal.
At You Only Better, the team tackles their namesake imperfection with treatments such as FDA-approved Endermologie. It's similar to a massage, except that instead of using their hands, the team rubs physiques with a hand piece, tracing carefully-calculated lines across hips, thighs, and stomachs. The process helps tighten and lift skin, much like a lightning-fast elevator ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. To complement the toning massage, they offer other cellulite-reduction treatments, too, such as slimming non-surgical cavitation treatments, and electric muscle stimulation that tones muscles and reduces dimpling.
