With backgrounds in serving as a nurse in Army intensive care units to years working in medical aesthetics, TLC Skin Care Clinic's duo of master aestheticians takes skincare very seriously. Not only does that mean designing top-notch facials?one client gushed it was "the best facial I ever had"; it also means supporting cancer survivors on their road to recovery. They do this by correcting brow-hair loss with permanent makeup services and perking up complexions with custom medical facials. Those interested in more cosmetic treatments can choose from a half-dozen injectables, including Botox and Juvederm, or get individual lash extensions that might make your lashes tall enough to finally ride roller coasters by themselves.
TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service. Danell Banks boasts more than a decade in the field of medical aesthetics, and specializes in chemical peels and dermaplaning. Accompanied by an onsite doctor, these two bring cutting-edge skincare treatments to the table. Stephanie uses Botox and dermal fillers to iron out wrinkles, and they both offer custom medical facials and peels to coax out color and detox pores. In addition, their office is equipped with advanced technology that allows them to perform nonsurgical galvanic and radio-frequency treatments that help clients retain their youthful looks.
Tram Le, the founder of Le Timeless Beaute, has 20 years of experience as a stylist. She and her team perform an extensive range of aesthetic treatments, such as facials, waxing, and microdermabrasions. They also specialize in sprucing up hair, styling and coloring locks with products from brands such as Pureology, American Crew, and Moroccanoil. Tram and company can even add feather hair extensions.
The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like. The staff members work to make their clients feel like royalty while rendering manicures, pedicures, and other spa treatments such as waxing and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in permanent makeup, filling in lip lines and eyebrows.
For former Seattle Seahawks cheerleader Sequoia Leopold, lying in tanning beds was as much a part of the job description as tripping opposing players. She estimates that during her tenure on the sidelines, she tanned four times per week in a traditional UV bed, a practice that left her feeling like she was ruining her skin.
When Sequoia ultimately left the squad and opened her own tanning studio, Flawless Beauty Bars, it was a no-brainer to opt for airbrush tanning services. Instead of UV rays, she and her staff use organic tanning solutions to give skin a natural-looking bronze color. They use a similar airbrushing technique for makeup application, since the mist creates uniform coverage and doesn't leave messy-looking brush strokes.
The customized facial package at Dermavita is a skin-rejuvenating treatment completely tailored to each individual face. After an initial personal skin evaluation, the aesthetician will determine the most appropriate combination of facial treatments for each client. The 60-minute facial may include a specialized sequence of microdermabrasion, which polishes away blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and tarnish; deep pore cleansing to unpack pores' oversized purses of makeup residue, dead skin, and cookie crumbs; and a vitamin-and-collagen therapy to stimulate the living skin beneath the surface. Other treatment possibilities include an enzyme exfoliation, which removes rough, dry skin and softens the face, as well as a light chemical peel to restore your youthful appearance. A hydrating treatment locks in moisture, keeping skin soft, pliable, and luminous enough to help you read Proust in the dark, as the author intended. No matter which combination your skin requires, the customized facial aims to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin, softening lines, stimulating collagen, and treating skin damage.
