Led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rueckl, the seasoned team of mug magicians at Lakes Dermatology rejuvenate worn countenances using advanced face-friendly technology. Beginning with a consultation and pretreatment photographs, epidermal doyens outline a plan of attack on blemishes and flaws before desensitizing skull masks with a topical numbing cream and a series of horror movies. Then a technician expertly wields the Syneron skin rejuvenation (SR) system in a one-hour photofacial. Cold conductive gel and multiple passes of intense pulsed light, radio, and cable TV frequencies team up to penetrate deeper pigments and encourage firmer, smoother, more evenly toned skin. Since no skin is removed during the treatment, no downtime is required and customers can step right back into the daily grind, employing their freshly refurbished expressers to advance their dreams of starring in a wrestling soap opera. After the first treatment, skin should feel smoother and be more evenly toned, but Lakes Dermatology's experts often recommend multiple treatments for more dramatic results.
Employing paraben-free products, Just Face It Med Spa’s anti-aging experts wind back face clocks with medical-grade skin treatments customized for each client's needs and skin type. The micro-needling procedure helps treat skin peppered with stretch marks and acne scars, while Vi peels reduce acne scarring and jump-start collagen production without the hassle of hooking cheekbones up to alkaline batteries. In addition to the aesthetic innovations compiled by the owner, Martine Abbey, the spa contracts out space to expert practitioners for wax, wrap, and massage services to complement their suite of rejuvenating techniques.
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.
It may look like a funky surf shack, but Paradise Nail Bar is actually an integral pit stop on the road to beauty. During relaxing mani-pedis, the studio's technicians pamper feet with natural scrubs and adorn nails with intricate designs depicting flowers, hearts, and presidential visages. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians cleanse pores with facials and detoxify birthday suits with body wraps within the privacy of a treatment room. Waxing treatments whisk away large swathes of unwanted hair, while threading sessions leave brows artfully arched and upper lips free of fuzz.
