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.
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.
Sagging skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks don't fare well against the Dermapen device's collagen-stimulating needles. Few know that better than the staff at The Nova Cosmetic and Rehabilitation Center. They specialize in the treatment, a feat that normally requires removing the wrinkles from a shar-pei. To complement the Dermapen's youthful results, they also schedule med-spa services such as lipotropic injections, prp plasma, and permanent-makeup sessions.
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.
Between a carmine screen and a glossy wood desk, a receptionist welcomes clients to A La Mode Beauty Salon, which polishes appearances from head to toe. Excited girls and women chatter in the background as stylists twirl, pin, and spray their hair in preparation for quinceañeras and weddings. Meanwhile, nail technicians massage feet, paint fingernails with shellac polish, and apply acrylic nails. Expressions shine after cleansing, balancing facials, which can be paired with waxing or permanent makeup to add an extra air of elegance to clients' features.
Within the private rooms at Patricia's Skin Care, clients relax as aestheticians perform soothing beauty treatments to bodies and faces. Head-to-toe wraps and scrubs exfoliate birthday suits, and infrared slimming treatments promote svelter physiques without surgery. Traditional facial and high-tech skin therapies––including those that call upon LED light and ultrasonic waves––cleanse pores and refine complexions. To shave time off morning routines, permanent-makeup applications imbue features with pigments that won't run in the shower or escape overnight.
