Dr. Phillips, a board-certified general and vascular surgeon, taps into more than 20 years of experience to oversee Lumi?re Laser & Vein Center. His team of consultants, medical assistants, and aestheticians harnesses waves of light to reduce unsightly veins and revitalizes mugs with signature facials or photofacial treatments. Using FDA-approved lasers, they also dispatch nail fungus, reduce irksome body hair, and reveal buried treasure with an intricate series of mirrors.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic?s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
TLC Laser & Skin Care Center's technicians curate their menu of beautifying offerings with a keen eye for the latest technology, employing an arsenal of specialized lasers to resurface faces, remove hair, and increase clarity during PowerPoint presentations. They also offer Coolsculpting to help freeze the fat off. Meanwhile, laser-free treatments refine visage surfaces with skin-soothing facials, an array of Botox, Dysport, and other injectable wrinkle-wrestlers, and customized applications of professional skin care products.
A trio of smiling metallic suns behind the reception desk welcomes visitors to Soleil Bleu hair salon. While waiting for their stylist, clients can sink into leather chairs, sipping a complimentary beverage as they admire a wall of gauzy curtains and flowering vases. In the back, stylists cut, color, and texturize hair next to burnt-ochre walls. Stylists collaborate with clients to define and amplify their personal aesthetic, creating multi-dimensional highlights or playful blowouts. Stressed hair can finally relax after a Moroccanoil restorative treatment or luxuriate in a clarifying treatment that removes long-term buildup of product, hard-water deposits, and decaying pencils once tucked behind one's ear. Below the hairline, makeup artists use custom-crafted mineral makeup and Besame Vintage Cosmetic products to give skin a rosy glow.
Lynn Duncan is a proud perfectionist. “In this business, I’d have it no other way,” she says. At Lynn Duncan Permanent Cosmetics, the multicertified practitioner makes sure her clients' makeup is flawless—and permanent. She also offers microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, and eyelash extensions.
From the outside, Craig Berns Salon Spa?s broad porch, white fa?ade, and quaint chimneystack give the impression that the large historical house is someone?s welcoming home. Stepping inside, guests are greeted by a friendly receptionist in an elegant waiting area, replete with rich, wood floors and wainscoting, luminous candelabras, and walls lined with Aveda?s all-natural products. As the co-owners of the Aveda Concept salon and spa, Craig and Mary Beth Berns, along with their staff, treat clients with Aveda?s pure plant- and flower-infused essences. While team members receive consistent training on the latest cutting techniques, men and women alike luxuriate in a slew of services that span facials, massages, and haircuts. The salon and spa has been voted one of the best salons by Milwaukee Magazine in 2010, and one of the Top 200 fastest-growing salons six times by Salon Today, which has taken note of their ever-expanding list of services and lack of training wheels.
