Bristles brush against the skin, agitating dead cells and tickling the cheeks while a vacuum simultaneously sucks up the freed flakes. After the exfoliation, a customized paraben-free solution is applied to your skin. This is the DermaSweep system, which aesthetician Victoria Spitters uses to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dehydration, all while being gentle to sensitive skin. In addition to rejuvenating faces, Victoria also waxes away unwanted hair.
Dedicated exclusively to hair design, 227CRUZ offers any service pertaining to tresses. The staff relies on professional products from Redken and other top brands to fortify single-process color treatments and subtle ombre highlights. They also offer styling for men, using name brand serums to put the finishing touches on sharp, contemporary cuts. After a cut or color service, clients can opt to have their hair simply and elegantly styled, or request special treatment, such as flat-iron work or an updo.
For 16 years, Farzana Farzam has used her beauty expertise to style models for photo shoots, create camera-ready looks for TV personalities, and primp runway models for hair and fashion shows. At Farzana?s Hair Design & Make-up Artistry, she gives the same celebrity-level treatment to her clients as she snips away dead ends or sweeps hair into a whimsical updo. She adds color or waves to dull styles and creates fuller looks with hair extensions or hairpieces and wigs made from 100% human hair.
Nails by Joanne draws from nearly two decades of expertise as she pampers appendages with luxurious manicures and pedicures. Jagged talons transmogrify into smooth squares or delicate ovals beneath textured files, and overgrown cuticles beat a hasty retreat before daubs of vivid polish coordinate nails with clients' outfits, moods, or fire-engine-red irises. Hot towels and stones melt away built-up stress, and rejuvenating dips in paraffin wax smooth chapped skin and hydrate thirsty pores. A 15-minute hand-and-foot massage hones in on lingering digital tension with gentle pressure and therapeutic oils that sing soothing lullabies.
She may offer a spectrum of services?facials, massages, waxing?but Lana Tokar certainly has a specialty. The veteran aesthetician works tirelessly to battle the signs of aging inside her namesake spa, employing all the tools and tricks garnered through her more than 17 years of experience. One such tool?the HydraFacial?is a favorite in the celebrity community, enjoying the same popularity as strongly worded letters to the academy. Using a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration, the treatment effectively diminishes acne-causing dirt and oil, or grants aging skin new life in the form of a smoother complexion.
Lana also doles out nine other facial treatments, and a slew of slimming body wraps laden with organic ingredients, such as seaweed and peppermint. Clients leave waxing sessions smoother than an oil slick, and armed with any one of Lana?s own beauty products, such as a pineapple enzyme scrub or makeup remover.
