Board-certified physician Dr. Tory Westbrook leads The Laser Spa's team of medical assistants in beautifying skin with aesthetic laser treatments. Dr. Westbrook traded his scalpel for Candela's versatile and noninvasive GentleYAG laser, which is effective on any skin type, including tanned, dark, or bioluminescent. As an affiliated member of the Hair Removal Journal, the doctor stays on the forefront of industry advancements, using the GentleYAG laser to disable hair follicles over the course of a few visits. Staffers also direct the device's controlled heat to eliminate eight-legged veins or bolster collagen growth in areas of skin laxity, all while deploying the laser's patented cooling system to minimize discomfort. Dr. Westbrook's crew has compiled a list of frequently asked questions for more information on available procedures and how to use a laser pointer to de-feline a tall tree.
The beauty experts at Gentle Touch CT zap unwanted follicles with carefully calibrated jolts of electrical current, causing them to close up shop and stop producing hair after a series of sessions. They treat common areas such as the upper lip, underarms, or tops of the feet and perform their services within the confines of a private, comfortable office. Additionally, those seeking slimming services need look no further than the studio's body-contouring Lipo Light Pro, which targets localized areas of fat with the power of LED light. Gentle Touch CT also offers facial-rejuvenation treatments that are safe for all skin types. The studio's standard hours of operation are Monday?Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sparse eyebrows, thin lips, and lingering scars are no match for A Better Image's SofTap permanent makeup. Aestheticians use a microprobe to gently inject natural-looking pigments around the eyes, lips, areola, or anywhere else that needs more pigment, including those bearing the vestiges of burns or surgery. The tattooing process is entirely the choice of the client, who can choose how subtle or dramatic they wish their new look to be. A Better Image also offers permanent hair removal and eyebrow shaping services.

GBS Brows has carved out a niche for its four locations by offering beautification treatments not often found at other salons. While they certainly present standard fare such as facials, massages, and waxing, what sets them apart are their two other treatments; threading and henna tattoos. Threading, an alternative to traditional waxing, uses intertwined pieces of thread to remove and shape facial hair with increased precision. Their India-trained henna tattoo artists can create beautiful, often floral-inspired designs that typically last about two to four weeks, like most grade school plays. Each location's décor showcases its own type of elegance, but they all feature bright colors and pleasant flourishes such as plants and paintings.
