Bodycaretreatments is a salon, a spa, and a holistic health practice. Stylists and nail technicians ensure hair and digits look their best, while makeup artists tint brows and perm lashes. Aestheticians, meanwhile, perform body scrubs, facials, and waxing treatments. The staff also includes ear-candling pros and reiki masters, who help minds and spirits glow as brightly as complexions.
At Med Spa UM, a team of laser technicians, carboxytherapy specialists, and estheticians help clients nourish their skin and fight the effects of aging with effective, high-tech procedures. Their facial treatments restore lost years without the need for surgery; injections of dermal fillers and Botox plump up sagging skin, and carboxy injections fight fine lines and wrinkles with tiny subdermal infusions of CO2. Customized facials and microderms revitalize faces' exteriors, sloughing off layers of dead cells to reveal supple stretches of skin underneath. Although faces are one of the spa's major concern, they're not the team's only area of expertise. They also coax stubborn fat deposits to shrink with advanced techniques such as the Full Contact laser, which emits low levels of infrared light, or ultrasonic lipo sessions.
Eric Garcia, ARPN, is the sword clients use to fight aging. At America Aesthetic Center, he injects clients with Botox or Juvéderm, which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to skin. He also performs a platelet-rich plasma facial that rejuvenates cells and removes wrinkles with plasma taken from the client’s own blood.
Like singing, dancing, or cooking, applying makeup is an art form that many practice each day without a foundation of proper techniques. At Blush Lounge, an expert team of beauty professionals helps clients of all ages, including teens, learn the fine skills involved in accentuating facial structure with brushes, shadows, and a variety of products. Their classes focus on professional techniques to help enhance clients' abilities in applying makeup and styling hair. During classes, they use products from the Motives line by Loren Ridinger, and they also organize makeup kits to accommodate the needs and finicky appetites of specific skin types and colors.
Dr. Mardelle DeLight of DeLight Medical Clinic tends to the primary care and preventative needs of her patients. In appointments often made the same day, she performs everything from yearly physicals and lab work to beauty treatments and weight-loss services. In the waiting room, patrons prepare for sessions and sip complimentary refreshments. Televisions can be found in both the reception area and in the exams rooms, allowing patrons to keep up with the news or see if the anchor has overcome a terrible fear of microphones.
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.
