Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Fallon Fitzgerald was something of a child prodigy in the world of hairdressing?she took her first course at the age of 14, and as a youth traveled to France to train. Graduating with top honors from a prestigious trade school in Sydney, Australia opened the door to the many international awards and commendations she earned later, including a L'Oreal Color Trophy.
And even with all that talent, Fallon's own business idea was refreshingly simple: to open Dry de Luxe, an elite blow-dry lounge. Armed with Pureology's vegan products and Living Proof's MIT-designed formulas, stylists give voluminous blowouts, style intricate braided 'dos, and administer aromatherapy scalp massages. They also conduct makeup applications, their canvases illuminated by the chic salon's crystal chandeliers.
At Midtown Beauty Bar, experienced stylists and aestheticians cut, color, or wax off hair, and nail technicians decorate nails with regular or gel polishes. Then there are the makeup artists, whose airbrush system effortlessly dispatches a fine mist of pigment, unlike a hose filled with foundation. The result is a naturally glowing complexion and more even skin tone.
Victoria Ruben believes beauty shouldn’t be temporary. After founding her permanent-makeup business 20 years ago in Paris, she decided to further her aesthetic mission by opening a cosmetology and beauty school to share her refined technique with others. Today, Victoria combines her expertise with the latest tattooing equipment to fine-tune faces in her Florida studio. Her precise yet painterly touches of color can simulate all the hallmarks of a professional makeup application, from defining brows to subtly shading lips to drawing distinguished monocles.
Liv Plastic Surgery by Dr. Ress enhances its patients' natural radiance by performing a variety of both surgical and noninvasive procedures. Dr. Andrew Ress?a physician with board certification in general as well as plastic surgery?continues to embrace the most advanced improvements in cosmetic care as he refines the techniques he uses to perform facelifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and other services. However, the practice's noninvasive treatments are also capable of generating dramatic changes. Cosmetic laser systems can zap unwanted stubble, eliminate spider veins, or even minimize the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments and exfoliating chemical peels help even out skin tone by buffing away dead skin and dried cake frosting from the face, and medically-designed weight-loss programs can help patients achieve the figure they want over time.
