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.
When Leslee Wilburn realized Las Vegas lacked a family-friendly massage practice, she decided to open one herself and found the perfect name, fittingly, in her young daughter, Kaela. Kaela’s middle name, Ilan, means family tree and symbolizes the philosophy Wilburn founded her massage studio on, namely the aim to teach people of all ages the benefits of massage. Whether receiving a massage or learning how to give one, families can spend quality relaxation time together within Wilburn’s space.
A licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, Wilburn performs massages for kids and adults in a candlelit treatment room. While she eases parents' quotidian stress, children wait their turn in a cozy, home-like lounge area complete with a television and comfortable sofas. During kids' massages, Wilburn helps young muscles and joints develop balance and coordination, and she relieves the stress accumulated from cooking dinner day in and day out with plastic toy food. She also teaches massage classes for couples or new moms and hosts Massage n' Mingle parties where guests set up their own food and drink in the refreshment area to celebrate birthdays or ladies nights out.
Stylists at 9037 Salon reach above their heads to pull down their blow dryers, suspended from the ceiling from retractable cords, then use calculated gusts to put the finishing touches on clients' freshly cut and colored manes. Using Davines and Moroccanoil products, stylists add dimension with highlights, rich single-process hues, and a microscopic series of mirrors. Deep-conditioning treatments hydrate and moisturize strands to combat frizz, while keratin treatments fight unwanted kinks in a semi-permanent process.
The salon's modern decor complements stylists’ advanced techniques, with clean, white walls interrupted by exposed-brick accents, blue ductwork, and high-glossed concrete floors. Pops of artwork over the shampoo sinks add a splash of color.
Cosmetologists at Infiniti Creations Hair Salon/Day Spa swathe clients in soothing facials within wood-accented confines. Aesthetic experts purify pores, clean faces, and apply hydrating masks as clients with normal-to-dry skin relish a moment of refreshment. Along with cosmetic services, licensed male and female massage professionals apply hypoallergenic oils and lotions on muscles. This facilitates Swedish-massage techniques such as long, kneading strokes and rhythmic taps that spell out "relax" in Morse code, softening tissues, detoxifying the body, and reducing stress. Heavy drapes stand sentinel over the front lobby and recite peaceful poems for incoming guests.
Infiniti Creations Hair Salon/Day Spa is open Tuesday–Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
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.
