Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I have worked with BioElements since 1996. It is great for all skins and I am pleased that it contains no perfumes or fragrances. The All About You Botanical line has some fabulous ingredients, like salicylic and glycolic acids that work hard to treat damaged skin.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
My clients make me happy. I've been lucky to be in business for 20 years and I love coming to work. Seeing someone come in with damaged skin and watching their glowing smiles after a facial is quite rewarding.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
They don't wash their face. If you only wash once, wash your face at night so you don't roll around on a dirty pillowcase day after day. Your face collects dirty makeup and oily skin that you come in contact with each and every night. Plus, your skin tells on you when you don't wash it.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Facials are relaxing, but they are also stimulating for both men and women. It gives an extra push to clean the dead skin cells off and bring the new skin to the surface; it can take years off of your look.
Slimming Solutions is more than a name—it's a promise. The medspa, which is staffed by a doctor, a nurse, a nurse practitioner, and a medical aesthetician, treats clients to a wealth of services that help them to slim figures and enhance appearances. The non-invasive lipo laser blasts fat on arms, hips, and bellies with low-level wavelengths that break down fat cells, while the radio frequency body contouring uses heat to tighten and smooth skin while serenading it with the latest polka hit. Other services augment physiques, such as IPL hair removal, vein treatments, and laser skin resurfacing. The medspa also features a variety of spa services such as massages, microdermabrasion, facials, and teeth whitening.
Inside an electric pink studio, a team of aestheticians help clients look and feel their best with a full menu of waxing treatments and beauty services. During brow and Brazilian-waxes, brows and bikini areas can be shaped into tasteful shapes with quick swipes of cloth strips. The savvy stylists of The Wax Pot can also perform full-face makeup applications, prepping clients for nights out on the town or a meet-and-greet with a celebrity comptroller.
If there's one thing every human has in common, it's aging—some just do it less noticeably than others. At Rock Creek Wellness, age-management specialist Dr. Mark Strehlow makes sure birth dates are just numbers. Alongside his partner, Dr. James Dickie, Dr. Strehlow creates custom treatment plans that aim to rejuvenate the body's natural rhythms. The two doctors rely especially on Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, but also administer lipotropic injections designed to increase energy and, in turn, help speed up weight loss efforts. While the duo of doctors address issues on the inside of the body, the rest of the Rock Creek's staff members focus their energies on sprucing up outer surfaces with laser hair removal, facials, and cosmetic injections.
?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Under new management and equipped with an arsenal of medical lasers, fillers, and injectables, board-certified interventional radiologists target unwanted marks on the legs, evicting spider and varicose veins and leaving behind even skin that deserves to be flaunted. Led by Medical Director Ellen M. Yetter, MD, the team—which includes physicians, technicians, aestheticians, a medical assistant, and one domesticated chimpanzee with a heart of gold—also welcomes patients for dermal fillers, laser hair removal, massages, and facial treatments.
