Laser aesthetics might seem like a recent phenomenon, but PHR Centers' staff members have been using lasers to address clients' cosmetic needs since 1981. This gives them experience far beyond what you might expect in their industry. Dr. Amy DeRosa?a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon?oversees the centers' teams of registered nurses, licensed aestheticians, and laser technicians, who work together to treat a wide range of concerns by using the latest equipment and techniques.
By focusing on nonsurgical solutions to common aesthetic issues, PHR Centers can grant clients dramatic effects without the downtime of plastic surgery or the risks of time travel. The experts call on the Palomar Vectus cosmetic laser system to eradicate unwanted hair while cooling the skin for a more comfortable experience, and use Vaser Lipolysis, SmartLipo, and radio-frequency-based Vanquish treatments to contour clients' bodies by targeting stubborn fat deposits. To achieve a more youthful appearance, Deka SmartXide DOT therapy helps improve skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen production, and Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels work to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the complexion.
At Beyond Nails, owner Sandi Tomlinson leans on her 27 years of beautifying experience to lead a duo of technicians versed in nail art and skincare. The range of beauty-enhancing services includes facials, bikini waxes, and manicures with OPI Colorgel or CND Shellac polish that lasts up to two weeks, or the time it takes a tadpole to grow into his older brother?s jeans. Emery boards rasp gently, and tenor sighs drift from heated massage chairs in Beyond Nails' new, larger location.
Light pours forth from Absolute Tan, where UV rays bronze skin and infrared beams promote a relaxed, lithe physique. Having filled their airbrushes with Norvell bronzer, tan technicians coat limbs in an even, bronze hue that dries quickly without streaks. Lotions from Designer Skin, Ed Hardy, and the organic Badger Balm line nourish the skin while speeding the tanning process by increasing skin’s moisture.
ZipTanz helps its patrons maintain a sun-kissed glow with tanning packages priced by the visit, week, month, or year. Tanning beds of various intensity levels keep bodies bronzed without the sun's assistance, and the open-air ZipTanz booths gently spray limbs with an all-natural bronzing spray in a minute flat. Afterwards, warm air gently blows the skin dry, helping to prevent streaking.
Alongside a highly trained staff, board-certified dermatologist Audrey J. Bruell channels more than 20 years' worth of skincare expertise into ousting unsightly spider veins with Cool Touch laser treatments. Clients can snipe at troublesome squiggles anywhere on their bodies during the 30-minute procedure, which causes minimal discomfort. As a relatively painless alternative to sclerotherapy, the session requires no downtime and results in minimal bruising for all skin types. Multiple appointments may be necessary depending on each patient and the number of Road Closed signs erected for joyriding blood cells.
Xclusive Tan’s epidermal artists transform physiques into heavenly bodies with a host of skin-rejuvenation and tanning services. During three RenuvaSkin sessions, visitors stand on a vibrating platform and revel in head-to-toe crimson LED beams. The combination of motive and spectral stimuli aims to bolster muscle tone and circulation, tighten lax elastin, and spur collagen production and boost morale within fibroblast factories. Soul-cage surfaces typically attain noticeable softening after each 12-minute procedure, but repeated exposure can assuage pigmentation problems and shake accumulated wrinkles out of vintage birthday suits.
