Dr. Ronnie N. Dawood and his staff at Sublime Medical Aesthetics & Dermatology treat patients with the care that comes from believing that "cosmetic surgery is never routine." Though treatments may have been performed hundreds of times, the licensed surgeon and physician takes nothing for granted—making sure to carefully look at each patient's medical history, current health, and reasons for seeking treatment before agreeing to perform procedures. The staffers pride themselves on staying current on the latest, safest practices, which they use to enhance façades through nonsurgical or minor surgical procedures, including laser vein therapy, liposuction, and Botox injections.
Light from a blown-glass chandelier refracts off gold-framed mirrors and brightens the azure walls of Tiffany Hair Studio & Skin Care, creating a lush setting for high-tech hair and skin therapies. Hair experts protect follicles with low-ammonia hair colors, moisture-rich conditioners, and thickening formulas, and stimulate growth using olive-oil rubs, laser treatments, and an inspirational Jeff Van Gundy slideshow. They also eliminate unwanted body hair with lasers, which can permanently reduce both coarse and fine hair on all types of skin.
The aestheticians further smooth skin with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and a plastic surgeon with 30 years of experience temporarily eradicates wrinkles with cosmetic injectables. A resident nutrition counselor helps balance diets to ensure newly evened-out complexions stay healthy.
All of the luxurious treatments are complemented by hot tea and homemade treats, as well as staffers who sit with clients to offer one-on-one consultations or practice the salon’s secret handshake.
At Xtreme Beauty Hair Salon, amid potted plants and hardwood floors, stylist Victoria draws on years of hair styling experience to snip chic cuts and saturate strands with rich color. Patrons can also opt for treatments such as hair and eyelash extensions, teeth whitening, or keratin blowouts.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Using only a loop of cotton thread and a careful eye, the threading specialists at The Brow Shop lift away unwanted hair. They can shape brows into clean arches, defuzz any part of the face, and even thread the arms, leaving them smooth and bare. The process is well suited for sensitive skin, as it adheres directly to hairs rather than to the flesh that surrounds them. Visitors to the salon can also find powders and gels to tint the brows and hold them in place.
The skilled cleaning technicians know how to pamper cars, trucks, and SUVs; not only do they hand wash and wax exteriors, but they shampoo and steam clean floor mats, seats, and interior leather as well. To keep every nook and cranny clean, they vacuum interior crevices, steam clean carpets, and degrease wheel wells. They also deoxidize headlights and paint jobs to create a smooth finish and ensure that headlights can unblinkingly stare down police roadblocks.
