During a 36-year career in aesthetics, Diva Lashes' Patricia has developed an affinity for beauty techniques that require absolute precision. Patricia is board-certified in micro pigmentation, or the art of permanent makeup, and relies upon a digital tattoo machine to quickly and accurately render the texture of eyebrow hair or line an eye with minimal discomfort. Many styles of eyelash extensions similarly reflect her enjoyment of meticulous handwork, as each tendril must be adhered one-by-one in order for it to blend in with the natural lash line and hang on for up to three months without the encouragement of a kitten simultaneously dangling from the follicles. Over the past two decades, Patricia has honed her ability for evaluating her client's skin, and now creates custom refresher courses with SkinCeuticals products, vitamin C serums, and facial peels. She shares her decades of expertise and passion for beauty through the American Cancer Society's Look Good?Feel Better program, which connects oncology patients with aestheticians.
At Beautiful Reflections by Barbara, Barbara boasts licensure in aesthetic services that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and eyelash extensions. But the service that really sets her apart from her aesthetic contemporaries is her skill with waxing.
Dedicating her craft to discovering the golden bullet of "painless" waxes, Barbara undertakes gentle strand-removal procedures with high-quality waxes and techniques carefully chosen over years of experience. But her specialty is Brazilian waxes, a skill that has earned her the nickname "Barbara Brazilian" by her clientele. In addition to clearing away unwanted bikini fuzz, she decorates newly smooth skin with vajazzle services, adorning down-unders with more flair than a rainbow saddle.
Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
RSVP Med Spa's director Dr. Ruiz leads a team of RNs, laser technicians, and aestheticians on a laser- and cosmetics-driven quest to rejuvenate skin. After entering the spacious, chic lobby, clients step into private rooms where lasers kill hair follicles, the Venus Freeze's magnetic fields and radio frequency tighten skin, and HydraFacials leave faces more radiant than the Hydra after it slew Hercules. Organic ingredients wait to escape the confines of RSVP Med Spa's collection of skincare products from RSVP Med Spa Cosmeceuticals, Neocutis, SkinCeuticals, Epionce, Colorescience, and NIA24.
Stylist and nail technician Lucy Grothusen works from a cozy corner of Aspen Salon and Spa where she frees nails from scraggly cuticles and daubs them with durable Shellac gel. She can also affix Tammy Taylor acrylics to add length and style. With the Rockstar nail treatment, she brushes nails with Shellac, dots them with glitter, and teaches them to play the solo in "Free Bird." In addition to her signature nail services, Lucy performs cuts and colors on tresses, spritzing heads with Kenra and alcohol-free Pureology products.
Makeup artist and licensed aesthetician Chavon Swartz tends to the faces that walk down runways, appear on television, and visit her salon, Adorn Beautique. Inside the newly remodeled salon, Chavon and her staff pamper their clients from head to toe. They exfoliate skin during custom facials, wax brows, and even apply lash extensions that make customers look more alluring and less threatening to camels. Additionally, custom airbrush tans bronze every inch of exposed skin.
