At Veinity, varicose veins shrink and dissipate, body hair vanishes, and cellulite surrenders its hold on hips and thighs. Aiming to solve these and other beauty concerns is the specialty of Dr. Peter G. Vajtai, who taps into more than 25 years of experience. His mission is to help beautify clients without pain, scarring, or need for anesthesia. That’s why, instead of surgery, he relies on lasers; they can be calibrated to target certain tissues and ignore others. Smart Lipo treatments, for instance, can emulsify fat cells without damaging the skin. Unwanted hair, rosacea, and spider veins can also evaporate without much collateral damage––which is what laser treatments are designed for.
But the board-certified vascular surgeon doesn’t work alone. Alongside Dr. Vajtai, Licensed Aesthetician Wendy Lewis smoothens wrinkles and resolves other beauty woes with training from the Mayo Clinic. She wields certifications in Botox, Juvederm, and medical-grade chemical peels and, like the good doctor, she draws from more than a quarter of a century of experience.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Master aesthetician Jamie Lee Metz has gathered her fair share of accolades over the years. From 2008 to 2010, her spa was voted Best of Citysearch in eight categories, and Summerlin magazine has given her a five-star global spa resource rating. She leads a team that uses a wide array of advanced beauty tools, such as Cutera lasers and diamond-tip microdermabrasion wands. State-of-the-art products on hand include hard and soft waxes, organic herbal concoctions, and cleansers loaded with collagen and enzymes. Understanding that each client's skin is different, the trained team take time to perform a detailed evaluation before administering any of their signature facials, waxing services, skin care treatments, hair removal, and various laser services.
The medical directors, aestheticians, and technicians at Attitude Med Spa use pharmaceutical-grade Image Skincare products in combination with aesthetic technology to smooth, tighten, and shape all areas of the physique. Divided into six body-bettering arenas, the med spa’s services include novel treatments such as facial plasma rejuvenation to aggressively resurface skin, as well as more traditional facials and peels. From facial fillers to organic, DHA-infused spray-tan sessions, the team’s treatments address dozens of epidermal concerns. Treatments also work to expedite weight loss with body sculpting, which can shave off the inches necessary for clients to fit into little black dresses or the child seat of a shopping cart.
The self-proclaimed “waxperts” at Wax Hair Removal Bar eliminate stubble and fuzz with a combination of cream and hard waxes. Though they’re predominantly known for servicing male clients—more than 40 percent of their customers are men—they offer waxing services to all, and remove hairs from nearly every part of the body, from the eyebrows to the toes. They can supplement waxes with Swarovski Crystal tattoos or other aesthetic services, from bikini treatments that prevent ingrown hairs to the ultimate chest treatment, which keeps acne away from six-packs like a chaperone on a middle-school camping trip. The bar also dolls up patrons with brow- and lash-tinting services as well as lip services powered by a blend of shea butter and avocado oil.
