For 20 years, Thurston House's aestheticians, massage therapists, hair stylists, and nail technicians have provided relaxing and beautifying services in a serene, well-appointed house and spa. The spa wields an FDA-approved intense-pulse light (IPL) that gently zaps the follicles of underarms and carpeted upper chests without disrupting the surrounding skin or nearby magic shows. The treatment can also ease the appearance of tattoos, scars, and stretch marks. An on-staff physician helps patients achieve cosmetic goals with facial fillers, including Botox, and a variety of facials and peels further assist faces in their quest to recapture youth. Nail technicians use paraffin, shellac, and hot stones to keep clients hands smooth and nails trim during manicures and pedicures. The staff takes extra care to ensure client comfort amid the facility’s attractive treatment rooms, which exude homey tranquility with wood floors, earth tones, and elegant chandeliers.
At Perfact Brow Art By Threading, aestheticians employ a specialty method—threading—to remove unwanted hair and shape brows into immaculate lines. Using a thin, twisted cotton thread, they roll across untidy hairlines and pluck out multiple hairs at a time from the follicle, resulting in smooth skin for up to four weeks with little irritation. Additionally, Perfact's aestheticians create temporary body art—from ornate designs to the weekend's grocery list—using a natural, chemical-free dye known as henna, or employ Control Corrective or Bioelements products to cleanse faces of dirt and oil during microdermabrasion and facial treatments in completely private rooms.
At Advanced Laser & Electrolysis, thirty-year hair-subtraction veteran Trudy Brown helms a squad of professional, friendly specialists dedicated to safely and efficiently removing fuzz from all skin types. After a consultation, a trained laser specialist will select either the Cutera CoolGlide ND:YAG Laser or LightSheer Diode Laser to best depilate your pelt. Then, he or she will direct the gentle beam of light that passes through skin and into the follicles for long-lasting hairlessness.
Often when an eyebrow threader removes unwanted brow hair, they hold one end of the cotton thread in their mouth. But at Wow Brows!, threaders actually tie the thread around their neck, a technique that has been deemed by threading regulators in North Carolina to be more sanitary. In addition to shaping brows without disturbing the topmost layer of skin, hair-removal experts banish fuzz from all over the face.
Perfectly arched brows can be yours with just a piece of thread. And the help of the professional brow threaders at Brow Art Threading Salon, of course. The time-tested hair-removal tradition is used to clean up and shape eyebrows, with minimal irritation to even the most sensitive skin. The salon's key-lime green walls create a welcoming atmosphere as the hair-removal professionals tend to brows, or get rid of unwanted hair elsewhere with body-waxing services. Henna and facials are also available.
