When Creative Designs Hair Studio's owner Nancy Nassar started her salon, she knew she wanted to clear-cut the impediments and general annoyances that can be part of the industry. She shunned the surprise fees and brusque services, and filled her modern salon with stylists eager to discuss trends and chat about techniques. Each appointment begins with a consultation during which hair experts discuss treatments and provide full pricing before they begin. To back each of their haircut and skin and body services, Creative Designs offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if clients aren't happy with the results, they can return for a touch-up, refund, or free bear hug.
The spa treatments at Lily Laser and Beauty have a far-reaching eclecticism. Take, for instance, the 4G facial. Using lasers, this 20-minute treatment can diminish break outs and firm skin. Lily's technicians also enlist lasers?Soprano machines, to be exact?to remove unwanted hair. Compared to other laser systems, the Soprano causes a low level of discomfort, thanks in particular to the DualChill tool that keeps the skin cool. But it still removes unwanted hair quickly and thoroughly. In addition to laser-powered treatments, beautifiers can also perform massage and waxing with a soy-based product, ultherapy, botox, filler, and professional teeth whitening.
Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.
By performing nearly 40,000 high-tech procedures every year, the nurses and medical professionals at Look Great MD's four locations help clients fine tune their looks without invasive surgery. They smooth skin with everything from Botox to Reaction, a noninvasive device that combines radio-frequency energy and vacuum therapy to combat cellulite and firm up skin. Reaction treatments also target fat cells, as do CoolSculpting treatments, which kill fat cells by freezing them. Dr. G's physician-supervised weight-loss programs can help clients keep the weight off by teaching them how to reduce calories?all while still eating their favorite foods, not just looking at them longingly and imagining eating them.
