When stodgy waxing technicians refused to perform Brazilian waxes on her, Valerie Iourtchenko learned to do them herself, developing a unique approach that she soon shared with dozens of friends. After attending medical school in her native Russia and starting a new life in Canada, Valerie attained her aesthetics license and began working her smoothing magic on a steadily growing client base. Since then, she's opened Rescue Skin Care & Waxing Studio in Vancouver as well as two sister locations in southern California—all of which have been praised by the media for their tranquil atmospheres and effective service regimens. Though the company's claim to fame is waxing, which staffers perform with medical spatulas and 100% Egyptian cotton muslin, it also eases skin-based issues such as blemishes and freckles arranged to spell off-color jokes through more than a dozen specialized facials that harness Éminence and DCL products.

A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
Certified cosmetic procedure and skincare specialist Natalia Ryndin has spent more than two decades refining her craft. Now at Ilana Botox and Beauty Boutiques, she halts facial aging with Botox and dermal filler injections, especially when she hosts Botox parties for bridal showers or birthdays. To the same end, her staff coats faces in chemical peels from top brands such as Obagi or Vivité. Clients often maintain their results by purchasing skincare products such as PrecisionMD or EltaMD facial creams, or just putting plastic wrap around the parts of their faces they don’t breathe with.
