The aestheticians at Day-Lux Mobile Spa help folks look their best with a menu of waxing, facials, and massage. The staffers ensure their waxing treatments are as comfortable as possible by using both hard and soft wax. They use soft wax to remove unwanted fuzz from larger areas?such as the legs and back?pulling it off with muslin strips, whereas they use hard wax to treat more sensitive areas?such as the bikini line and underarms. The hard wax attaches to the hair rather than the skin, and the aestheticians can quickly remove it without muslin strips. They also cater their massages to clients needs and preferences, using gentle Swedish strokes to relieve tension or the more intense deep-tissue kneads, which target chronic pain. Moving on to the face, the aestheticians work to cleanse and moisturize skin or tackle specific issues including acne and the signs of aging, which might manifest as fine lines or a disdain for boy bands.
The aestheticians, cosmetologists, and technicians at Hair Pair cater to a wide range of cosmetic needs. Salon appointments update clients' coifs with everything from haircuts to coloring, while specialty services such as piercing and permanent makeup provide more dramatic makeovers. But above and beyond the not-so-standard beauty treatments, the haven also offers advanced med spa procedures to fine-tune faces and bodies. The experts provide laser and electrolysis sessions to remove unwanted hair, leaving skin as smooth as freshly waxed marble. Further complexion perfecting comes in the form of Botox and injected fillers, and full-body transformation is available via noninvasive contouring technology.
The talented stylists of Salon Etoiles bring decades of experience and education to every service they perform. In fact, when they're not snipping bobs into topiary giraffes, arranging locks into wedding-day masterpieces, or imbuing strands with vibrant color, many of the stylists study their craft at seminars and classes. The salon even has a trichologist on staff, whose in-depth knowledge of the science behind hair loss and scalp diseases helps heal ailing strands from the inside out. Guests also rely on the staff for threading and nailcare—as a CND certified salon, Salon Etoiles's in-house nail experts possess a special knack for Shellac manicures and pedicures.
With more than two decades of experience in the entertainment, fashion, and bridal industries, Gilda specializes in making her clients look and feel beautiful. Whether she is giving a European-style precision haircut, applying camouflage makeup, or administering laser skin-tightening or hair-removal treatments, her focus is always on her clients.
In order to continually improve her craft, Gilda attends international trainings taught by elite beauty educators, and keeps her eyes peeled for cutting-edge beauty trends. Before appointments, Gilda and her staff meet with clients to discuss their aesthetic aspirations and facial features before collaborating on a plan of attack, whether it be a new hair color, makeup application, or texture alteration, such as Japanese straightening or permanent waves. Waxing, threading and laser skin treatments round out the menu of salon services, which clients can enjoy while sipping complimentary mugs of coffee or glasses of wine. For those who cannot make it into the salon, Gilda still makes house calls to beautify brides-to-be and partygoers.
Fine tuning the health and beauty of the human body is the main order of business at Soma Solutions Wellness & Nutrition Centers. The nutrition coaches on staff draft dietary plans and teach clients how to avoid consuming extra calories by never again licking stamps. The certified personal trainers offer one-on-one workouts and all-you-can-sweat group classes.
Medically supervised technicians see to the aesthetic nature of the business, working to rejuvenate the skin with laser treatments and injectable solutions. The GentleMax laser zaps unwanted hair, spider veins, and sunspots on all skin types using high-intensity pulses of light. Noninvasive VelaShape II sessions, which have been featured in Shape, target cellulite and lax skin with robotic massage.
Just because each service at TLC Medispa relies on laser energy, that doesn't mean the center's equipment isn't versatile. That's because the center uses the Palomar StarLux 500 and Cynosure Elite laser systems, a practice which means the staff of certified laser technicians can treat any skin type, and the newer Palomar Vectus for quicker treatments.
During laser hair-removal treatments, techs aim these machines' intense beams of light at hairs to seal off the blood vessels that feed the follicles, thereby permanently preventing regrowth. The technicians also use lasers to clear away wrinkles, scars, acne, pigmentation, and spider veins. Because TLC Medispa's staff includes board-certified doctors, clients can also ascertain whether stethoscopes can detect disloyalty in pets.
