This small but busy nail salon was recently remodeled to give it a more contemporary and modern look, while still drawing in the same local crowds that have been consistently stopping by to have their style perked up with a fresh set of nails. Top Nails offers the latest in nail services, from acrylic nails to colored powders and beyond. Can’t find a color you like? Just ask the staff, considering their expertise in suggesting colors to patrons that complement their skin tone. French manicures can also be had inside this sunny, simple space lined with wooden work stations. If you really want to indulge, go for the hot stone deluxe spa pedicure.
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.
Universal Laser Center has been beaming cosmetic laser rays for more than a decade, devoting itself to a philosophy that welds health to the shimmering luster of beauty. Whether technicians are dissolving cellulite, toning complexions, or sending acne back in time, they pride themselves on using diverse technology "that improves and transforms lives." Spare decor marks the crisp, airy reception area, where patients wait to meet with professionals who leave clear complexions and sleek silhouettes in their wake.
Lasertique Spa's services go beyond the high-tech. Staff also relax and beautify their clients with old-fashioned spa treatments such as massages and rejuvenating milk facial peels. Educated as a surgeon and friend of medically trained robots, founder Dr. Robert Santa-Cruz heads a team of skincare specialists to treat a wide range of skin disorders and everyday complaints. For instance, photorejuvenation can counter uneven pigmentation and shrink oversized pores, and the spa's hair-removal technologies are designed to be quick and nearly painless.
In addition to having more than 20 years of experience performing aesthetic treatments, Dr. Gloria Lopez supplements her own skills with lasers, high-tech machinery, and dermal fillers. She wields the LipoLite laser body-sculpting machine to liquidize and remove unwanted fat cells, and she uses the VelaSmooth hand piece to flatten the dimplage that comes with cellulite or thighs that simply smile too much. Dr. Lopez can also tackle unwanted body hair, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne with her many in-office devices.
