Although aesthetician Nicole Maldonado is an expert wax technician, you won't find any wax in her studio. Instead, she removes unwanted hair with the same sugaring techniques the ancient Egyptians relied on. As a certified sugaring educator, she lauds the many benefits of sugar over wax. For one, sugar isn't hot, so there's no risk of clients getting burnt. For another, it eases out strands in their natural direction of growth to prevent breakage and ingrown hairs.
Kimberly Byers's desire to help clients maintain healthy, radiant skin stems from her own skin problems—as a teen, the licensed aesthetician suffered from acne and oily skin. Her custom facials deeply cleanse skin without over drying it, and a selection of chemical peels provides advanced exfoliation. Located down a quiet hallway, Kim's warm and soothing treatment room features a padded bed and essential oils by Young Living Oils.
The aestheticians at Creative Nails are trained experts in nailcare, facials, and waxing. Treatments make use of top-notch products from brands such as OPI and Creative Nail Design. The salon is also known for its cleanliness; all equipment is disinfected using hospital-grade disinfectants.
In ancient Persia, threading was more than a beauty ritual—it was a rite of passage. Beautifiers would thread a bride’s entire face before she walked down the aisle, and give girls similar treatments to signal their transitions to womanhood. Today, Fabulous Eyebrow Threading’s staff members enlist the historically significant practice to accentuate the faces of their clients. They snag and remove entire lines of eyebrow or lip hair with one swift tug, making threading more precise but less painful than tweezing or poking each hair until it is so annoyed that it uproots itself and leaves. They can also use soft wax on faces and bodies if patrons prefer it, and can embellish or refresh newly groomed visages with lash extensions and facials.
Board-certified dermatologists Robert B. Strimling and Lionel J. Handler call upon their mutual expertise in cosmetic and laser services to help patients maintain healthy and radiant exteriors. In additional to general dermatology treatments for acne, rosacea, and other topical blemishes, the doctors perform a multitude of laser-powered cosmetic treatments to rid skin of hair, varicose veins, and tattoos of relocated sports teams. The advanced dermatology center also restores façades to factory conditions with skin-renewing services such as chemical peels and FDA-approved injections of Botox and Dysport.
A black-and-white portrait of Marilyn Monroe lends an air of glamour to the waiting room at Las Vegas Laser Skin Care. In the treatment rooms beyond, trained technicians aim to endow faces and bodies with a similar aura using up-to-the-minute medspa treatments, including laser-hair removal. However, their arsenal of aesthetic gadgetry doesn't end there. Other cutting-edge procedures include microneedling, 24-karat gold facials, and Dermasound facial resurfacing, which uses high-frequency sound waves to remove dead skin, stimulate the production of new cells, and wake up all of the dogs in the neighborhood.
