Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.

With more than a decade of experience stowed in his steady fingers, makeup artist Kevin Perez has built quite a resume. He's done runway makeup for Victoria Secret and Cover Girl, and has even lent his talents to the entertainment industry, including at venues such as Radio City Music Hall, home of the Rockettes' rouge-covered legs. But rather than keep the tricks of the trade to himself, Kevin shares them with others in the Alamodaa series of themed workshops. Over a few hours, Kevin imparts his professional techniques to experts and amateurs alike, all while focusing on a specific subject, such as embellishing eyes with blush and shadow and maintaining complexions with face lotions, treatments, and more.
Brandi Snyder has spent much of her life around cameras, splitting her time as a model and photographer. At Lashes by Lavish, she helps others get camera ready by thickening and lengthening their natural eyelashes with realistic NovaLash extensions. Brandi carefully bonds individual lashes to a synthetic or mink extension with a waterproof adhesive. These lashes are shower safe and won’t fall out during cathartic fits of weeping. In fact, they’ll only fall out when the natural lash sheds, which happens roughly every 60 to 90 days.
