Lorine Mikhaeil leads a busy life. A trained nurse and a certified permanent makeup artist, she helms Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) as well as Zena Day Spa, Derma Blush, and American Permanent Cosmetics Institute. But no matter how busy Lorine gets, she always takes her time with her clients.
At OPM, Lorine uses a semi-permanent organic ink to expertly define brows, lips, eyelids, and even areolas for those affected by breast cancer. This metal-free formulation gives her greater control when she is applying the ink into the upper dermal layer. During these treatments, Lorine uses an advanced power pin and for brows a specialized hairbrush stroke method that she invented herself, which gives the illusion of 3D brow strands. To ensure clients are inked with complementing colors, Lorine refers to the Fitzpatrick skin type chart to make sure brows match their skin tone and auras.
Though OPM's name focuses on one service, the boutique spa's menu is brimming with a range of other aesthetic treatments. Strands stand no chance against OPM's three hair removal systems, which include waxing, threading, and laser hair removal. Alternately, dermal fillers and microdermabrasions keep complexions firm and looking younger than a toddler holding a newborn dolphin.
When its icy beauty isn't adding a tony touch to episodes of CSI, Blue Medi Spa spruces up the pages of publications from Allure to the Wall Street Journal. Blue's medical director, Dr. Daniel Yamini, has appeared on Entertainment Tonight and Dr. 90210.
Dr. Yamini's expertise stems from double board certification in plastic and general surgery, and he has performed more than 5,000 procedures during his career. He oversees Blue's nonsurgical services, which range from laser and body-contouring treatments to injectables and clinical facials that work better than taping prescription pads over the face.
As Dr. Yamini and his aestheticians tend to bodies, the spa's aquamarine light filters through translucent panels and reflects off of tiling. Stretched fabric and hanging shapes evoke the mobiles of Alexander Calder as space dividers create the feel of an art gallery on Pluto.
Wielding Candela GentleMax lasers, the aestheticians at Pure Touch Laser Center create smooth, fuzz-free expanses of skin. They also enhance the appearance of that skin with rejuvenating facials and injections of Botox and relax patrons with massages set to soothing music. Flexible scheduling ensures that visits are convenient for clients.
Under the supervision of Dr. Sohrab Yamini, a team of registered nurses and licensed medical professionals perform a diverse menu of beautifying med-spa services. Clients who want to remove unwanted fuzz can turn to laser hair removal, and those who want a smoother, younger-looking complexion can opt for cosmetic injections. Clients looking to curb cellulite have two options: Zerona, a laser treatment designed to help fat cells be absorbed by the lymphatic system, and VelaShape, a combination of radiofrequency and infrared light that can push fat cells deeper into the body. Whichever treatment customers are in the market for, they'll be able to meet with Dr. Yamini or a physician's assistant to answer any questions they might have about the service or what exactly "doctors" are.
All aesthetic procedures at A E Skin are performed by Dr. Alex Eshaghian, MD, PhD, who worked for more than 10 years in molecular biology labs and wrote his graduate dissertation on genetic factors that contribute to visible aging. At his practice, Dr. Alex promotes youthful appearances with treatments such as Botox and Juvederm as well as useful props like jumbo-size pacifiers. Laser therapies disarm hair follicles and zap away hyperpigmentation, and chemical peels dissipate the topmost layer of skin, where skin damage makes itself apparent. Laser treatments shrink and dissolve unseemly spider veins in the legs, keeping them from clashing with your wardrobe.
