Natural light floods through the salon's floor-to-ceiling windows onto cozy leather sofas and lush hardwood floors. Further into the space, hanging plants are situated at individual cutting stations, where owner Peggie and her skilled stylists have been transforming the tresses of downtown Westwood for more than 20 years. Clients can solicit Patti or Tracy for elegant Matrix highlights or defrizz unruly hair with Dawn, who's certified in keratin straightening treatments. The staffers can also nix unflattering fuzz from upper lips, chins, and bionic metal limbs during personal waxing sessions.
The surgeons at New York Group for Plastic Surgery use their skills in cosmetic and reconstructive medicine to help their patients restore their appearances after illnesses or injuries and look better in bathing suits or driver's-license photos. Common procedures include face-lifts and nose jobs, as well as tummy tucks and breast augmentation. They also supervise an array of noninvasive treatments, such as Ultherapy, beauty injections, and facials, in their medical spa.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.
As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
Dr. Marc L. Epstein locates the lost faces of youth with the aid of modern FDA-approved beauty injections and a skilled, artful touch. Dysport slows down frantic facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses in a targeted attempt to smooth creases found in common wrinkle-squatting spots such as the forehead, between the brows, the space-time continuum, and around the eyes. The entire treatment takes about 15 minutes and results typically appear within a few days. Restylane plumps deflated lips, voids laugh lines, and eliminates under-eye sadness in about 30 minutes with a hyaluronic-acid-infused gel. The time-rewinding serum's handiwork may last six months or more, or about the amount of time it takes to dig a tunnel to Nova Scotia. The elegant medical office treats visitors' vehicles to free parking.
