Luxz Esthetics owner Roxanne is one of only seven authorized Intraceuticals skincare professionals in Oahu. In this role, Roxanne administers Intraceuticals's signature treatment, which involves infusing the face with oxygen and painting it with a serum composed of vitamins, aloe vera, green tea, and hyaluronic acid. As implied by its prefix, the Intraceuticals formula seeps deep into pores. As a result, the products stimulate the skin rather than traumatize it with chemicals or gruesome Halloween masks. In addition to the nonchemical peel infusion, Roxanne performs diamond microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells from the superficial layer. She also administers microcurrent treatments to naturally stimulate cell growth and provide a nonsurgical, nonpuppet-string face lift. Roxanne's private salon-studio specializes in other non-surgical skin care procedures including Microdermabrasion, Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Treatment and Atoxelene wrinkle reduction treatment.

Nail technicians with a keen eye for artistry paint fingernails with such specialty designs as zebra print, flowers, butterflies, and near-perfect replicas of toenails. Dermalogica products nourish visages during a half-dozen different 90-minute facials, which range from an oil-and-acne treatment that uses high-frequency currents to kill bacteria to an anti-aging facial powered by hydroxyl-acid exfoliation. Private treatment rooms also host waxing procedures that leave skin smooth and hairless for longer than razors, tweezers, or stern lectures do.
At Makana Esthetics Wellness Academy, founder and education director Malia Sanchez equips students with 600 hours of aesthetics experience "so that the gift can be shared with others."

With freshly trained fingers, the budding aestheticians infuse skin with curative botanical ingredients or operate multipurpose beauty device that can perform manual lymphatic drainage, microdermabrasion, and light therapy.

The expert techs at Body By Laser tote a holistic philosophy alongside their space-age weight-loss treatments.
