The staff at Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics believes that beauty should be effortless, which is why they've curated a selection of services designed to minimize time in front of the makeup mirror. Permanent makeup artist Julia enhances eyes and lips with hypoallergenic ion-oxide pigments custom-matched to the client’s skin-tone and cosmetic preference. Instead of relying on a machine or stencils, Julia performs the tattoo-like procedure by hand, allowing her to impart a soft, natural look and even mimic the look of individual eyebrow hairs. Meanwhile, lash specialists enhance flutterers with everything from semi-permanent extensions to lash dipping—a process that allows clients to ditch their mascara for up to six weeks. Pigmenta’s staff also invites customers to stop in for quick threading sessions, where sturdy lengths of thread allow aestheticians to swiftly remove excess hair from the face and brows or quickly sew it back on if the client changes their mind.
Pino Milano, the owner and master stylist at Belvedere Salon and Spa, draws from 30 years of hairstyling experience to craft designer haircuts and imbue flattering color. A native of Italy, Pino brings a touch of European style to his salon, where an equally impressive roster of master stylists and aestheticians with training in Europe, New York, and Boston practice their respective fields of expertise. The salon experts call on formulas by Matrix, Moroccanoil, and Crew to forge elegant new hairstyles, and nail and skin specialists perform facials, waxing services, and luxurious mani-pedis with reflexology treatments and sea-salt scrubs.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
The certified laser technicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians who staff Advanced Laser & Skin Center stay up-to-date on modern trends to provide the most advanced aesthetic services. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, they perform technology-based treatments such as Venus Freeze and Thermage, which noninvasively tightens and smoothes the skin, or DermaSound facials that remove dead cells using low-frequency ultrasound waves and extragentle jackhammers. Other procedures, such as laser hair-removal or spider-vein treatments, foster beautiful skin that spans the entire body. Patrons can also opt for old-fashioned pampering in the form of facials that incorporate natural ingredients such as chamomile or pineapple enzymes.
The doctors at Cosmetic Laser Clinic remove all types of blemishes from the skin, including tattoos, acne, spider veins, and unwanted hair using laser technology, radio frequency, and injections. With these modern techniques, the professionals also smooth out wrinkles and help snorers stop their nocturnal didgeridoo impersonations.
The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
