Rodi Salon and Spa's Cel.lux cosmetic light device shines a spectrum of colors on patients' faces, aiming to soothe a range of skin ailments in 25- to 45-minute light therapy sessions. As the client lies supine on a treatment table, a luminous wand passes methodically over features without touching them, much like a human windshield wiper, emitting a custom cocktail of rays that attempts to treat skin maladies. Each of the light's seven colors is designed to match a healing trait, with violet purifying the skin, blue soothing, aqua oxygenizing, green diminishing redness, yellow toning muscles, orange helping skin tone, and red stimulating collagen and causing all traffic on the forehead to screech to a standstill.
Armed with Parisian and American beauty training, aesthetician Soraya Nouralian knows how to help suppress the signs of aging. The skin expert calls on both laser technology and Austrian botanicals to fight facial issues from every angle. At MyGentleLase, her beautification haven, clients can attend a no-cost initial consultation to determine which services are best for their skin type, beauty needs, and childhood phobias of being shrunk. Among clients’ options are laser hair removal, skin-tightening treatments, and facials and peels that call on products from the Vienna-based Dr. Temt skincare line.
Sugaring Studio Inc. prefers a sweet method of hair removal: sugar. Technicians blend sugar with natural ingredients such as water and lemon juice to create a honey-like paste, which removes unwanted fuzz like traditional wax. But, unlike chemical formulations, the paste may reduce skin irritation, minimize ingrown hairs, and let recipients imagine their knees are cupcakes. When they aren't smoothing bodies with sugaring services, the studio's beauty experts can treat hands and feet to mani-pedis with traditional or gel polish.
