Tangerine Skin’s aestheticians aim to prevent skin irritations before they become bothersome. They slather Image Skincare products over faces, keeping acne at bay, unclogging pores, and mopping up excess oil. In all, the staff renders 10 skin treatments and 8 facials. The staff also expertly twists a piece of cotton thread over brows, removing unwanted hairs for that coveted look of a McDonald’s arch. When a single thread won’t do, they evict fuzzy patches on upper lips and legs with warm wax.
Le Soleil Tanning's owner, Rachel Tanis, has been in fierce competition with the sun for four years. Since opening in 2008, she and her staff have gained the upper hand with Smart Tan certification, which gives them the tools to design safe tanning regimens for each skin type. Those hoping to avoid UV exposure step inside an automated VersaSpa spray booth, where special serums moisturize the skin with aloe vera and balance its pH before coating it in bronzer. Fresh, neatly folded hand towels sit atop Soltron and Ergoline beds radiating UV rays at three levels of intensity. The most powerful of these is a high-pressure Ergoline bed with an open, airy design that surrounds those within in UVA rays and tunes piped from its MP3-player dock. Part and parcel with creating the hallmark of health and youth, the studio offers red-light therapy that promotes collagen production for firm, smooth skin, and fights acne harder than a dermatologist with a soap-filled fire hose. The white lobby's glass shelves display nourishing lotions from Designer Skin and Swedish Beauty that aid the safe development of a rich, even color.
The Just For Her Event brings women together for a weekend of merriment with exhibition booths, salon services, and live entertainment. Since its debut in Kansas City, the event has spread to Omaha's CenturyLink Center, where attendees can relax with friends or peruse the selection of jewelry, handbags, gourmet foods, clothing, and Husker-themed apparel. The event will also feature opportunities to indulge in discounted mini spa treatments or donate to a charitable organization in exchange for a quick hair-styling touch-up.
SalonOne19 & Spa's featured aesthetician, Breena Yates, is trained and certified to wield Image Skincare’s high-quality products to refinish facial exteriors, which she does in a modern office marked by sunny yellow walls and plush brown furnishings. The Image Signature facial pummels signs of aging with a concoction of antioxidants, enzymes, and collagen-coaxing materials designed to tighten skin and overhaul facial tissue marred by wrinkles and unfinished games of tic-tac-toe. Alternatively, fragile façades rejoice in the indulgent ministrations of a chemical-, acid-, and paraben-free organic balancing facial. This facial harnesses the powers of potent antioxidants and botanicals to even out unbalanced or sensitive skin common in pregnant women and poets with vertigo.
A cadre of physicians oversees three divisions that form a greater healthcare network. Primary Care Plus is a comprehensive center for family wellness and aesthetics. Emergent Care Plus provides urgent care and lab work seven days a week, an alternative to rushing to the ER or suffering quietly. Sports Med Plus, the hotshot fighter pilot of the group, focuses on injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Its doctors work with advanced diagnostic equipment such as ImPACT, a computerized test that determine whether a concussed athlete can return to play.
At Beautiful Reflections by Barbara, Barbara boasts licensure in aesthetic services that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and eyelash extensions. But the service that really sets her apart from her aesthetic contemporaries is her skill with waxing.
Dedicating her craft to discovering the golden bullet of "painless" waxes, Barbara undertakes gentle strand-removal procedures with high-quality waxes and techniques carefully chosen over years of experience. But her specialty is Brazilian waxes, a skill that has earned her the nickname "Barbara Brazilian" by her clientele. In addition to clearing away unwanted bikini fuzz, she decorates newly smooth skin with vajazzle services, adorning down-unders with more flair than a rainbow saddle.
