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.
The spa, whose name means "my beautiful woman" in Italian, is located inside Aesthetic Surgical Arts and overseen by its medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph C. Camarata. Dr. Camarata's licensed estheticians can rejuvenate facial skin with microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and SkinMedica products. After exfoliating and waxing the epidermis, the staff can fine-tune the details of clients' appearances by performing airbrush tanning and brow and lash tinting. To round out the extensive array of services, makeup artists leverage their expertise to apply beautiful pigments, in addition to giving lessons in how to do it on one's own visage.
The atmosphere in which these services are rendered is elegant and welcoming. Glass tabletops, leather furniture, and curved, earth-toned walls create a spacious lobby, where modern chandeliers illuminate calmly colorful abstract paintings.
Skinology Skincare improves the appearance of damaged skin, creating clearer complexions with facials, peels, waxes, and skin tightening treatments. Using Image and CBI Laboratories skincare products to treat live tissue at the cellular level, Skinology Skincare halts skin folds and dermal erosion in the same way that high-tech bungee cords keep the Mississippi River from getting any wider. Standard facials target five different concerns ranging from acne to dryness, and all come with a light massage and steam to evoke relaxation. Customers who require more intensive treatment can opt for hydrafacials, microdermabrasion, or image resurfacing peels, each of which aim to obscure signs of aging. Viora reaction treatments tighten aged skin and treat cellulite in the face, neck, abdomen, and legs, while photoepilation treatments stifle hair growth throughout the body.
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.
Katie Auth can give a classic or a cutting edge haircut. After years in the industry, she’s become a versatile stylist with the technique and vision to tailor each haircut to the client and their features. At Hair by Katie Auth, she offers haircuts as well as coloring for women and men, facial waxing, and keratin treatments. She even offers up tip and tricks of the trade for her clients, such as what makes a great dry-shampoo substitute and how to care for split ends without individually super-gluing all of them together again.
Part of what makes Julie Martin the stylist she is today has a lot to do with her experiences on both sides of the chair. She kicked off her career as a professional model, getting an impromptu apprenticeship in the types of tricks and techniques that go into creating a magazine-quality look. Eventually, she channeled that experience—along with some time spent training as a Paul Mitchell stylist—into her own boutique.
At La Vita Salon, she treats her clients like models in their own fashion shoot, talking through details and style preferences to pull off a look original to that client. In addition to haircuts and blowouts, Julie applies professional color and constructs elegant updos that increase her clients chances of getting voted “Most Updone” for the office yearbook.
