Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.
Thanks to a team of versatile stylists, it’s not uncommon for Salon Karisma’s haircuts and treatments to end with strikingly different results—one woman may leave with a playful, modern bob, while another may strut out the salon’s door with streaks of highlights that catch sunlight as she walks. Though diverse, many of these cuts and styles begin with a sudsy shampoo and a consultation that gets clients involved in the creative process.When determining the right cut or color for you, stylists carefully consider aspects such as your facial features and personal style. If the occasion calls for it, they can add curl with perms, length with hair extensions, and volume with stereo barrettes. Their concern for style doesn’t stop at the scalp; the salon’s ear-piercing services give clients the option to adorn their lobes with sparkling studs or flashbulbs with which to stun celebrities before kidnapping them and assuming their identity.
Working under board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David S. Goldberg, Monterey Skin Fitness Center’s licensed aestheticians work to halt the march of time with an array of skin-plumping peels and injections. Aestheticians offer guidance during every step of each treatment with a full evaluation and explanations for postpeel care. The 30–45 minute MicroPeel curbs breakouts, smooths wrinkles, and conditions and protects formerly fraught faces to maintain a freshly peeled appearance. The peel's immediate results make it ideal for a last-minute spruce on the way to extreme staring contests. Refinity peels take about 30 minutes to renew skin with a gentle application of glycolic acid, while protecting it with Cosmederm-7, a patented anti-irritation ingredient that reduces postpeel grouchiness for sensitive skin. Treat pimple-prone pores with a Vi peel, which lifts away scum, sun spots, and the appearance of scars while firming the skin. The 20-minute Vi peel yields visible results after about four days; results are maximized over multiple treatments.
Fogg, Maxwell, Lanier & Remington Eye Care's surgeons, are all fellows of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and are board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and have extensive eye-surgery experience. The doctors have even have taught courses to other doctors at national and international meetings of ophthalmologists.
At their practice, they and a group of optometrists perform everything from comprehensive examinations to vision-correcting LASIK, which helps treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Additionally, the team can treat such problems as cataracts and macular degeneration, and also help patients by simply providing them with a new pair of prescription glasses.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
After a day at most salons, you might look better for a few weeks; after an hour at Permanent Beauty, you might look better for several years. That's because the center specializes in permanent-makeup applications, during which skin artists apply long-lasting, mineral-based pigment to eyes, lips, and brows. The pigments are designed to fade gradually over time so clients can change makeup styles and shades as they age, change their hair color, or disintegrate into their component Transformers. Ever conscious of sanitation, the technicians use brand-new materials and equipment on each client. The end result is that clients achieve the dramatic glances, full lips, and expressive brows they’ve always desired but couldn’t obtain without betraying Mr. Potato Head’s trust.
