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 physicians and certified medical practitioners at Physicians' Laser Center educate their patients on the gospel of lasers with a broad menu of cosmetic laser services. Under the supervision of physicians, the practitioners calibrate FDA-approved lasers to each patient's hair color and skin type. They bend the beams to zap body hair, smooth wrinkles, heal scars, kill nail fungus, fade tattoos, and blind a passing cyclops. Physicians' Laser Center distributes its ace doctors and versatile lasers among five locations in the DC area.
From face to body, the team at Astoria Laser Clinic & Med Spa can help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Microdermabrasion machines and clinical-grade serums restore brightness to tired complexions, and fillers rejuvenate aging skin. Below the neck, CoolSculpting treatments help bodies look their fittest and smoothest, and state-of-the-art lasers clear feet of fungus and blast away unflattering shoes. All the prettifying services are supervised by medical director Dr. Jules A. Feledy Jr., a plastic surgeon whose wealth of experience makes almost any beauty goal achievable.
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.
