Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
Dr. Jon A. Kotis’s career has taken him down the hallways of many hospitals and universities. After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. His work has been recognized in various press outlets, including the television show The Doctors, which featured his pain-relieving knuckle transplant procedure.
Today, Dr. Kotis shares his aesthetic expertise at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. He and his staff fine-tune faces with less intensive procedures, such as Botox injections and microdermabrasion, and dramatically transform bodies with procedures including liposuction and rhinoplasty.
hough it was developed more than 1,000 years ago in India, threading has found a modern niche due to its eco-friendly reputation and gentle treatment of sensitive skin. Practicing this method for the last 24 years, the trained threaders at Eyebrow MakeOver use a three-step technique to ensure brows flatter each client’s face shape and default emotion. Technicians start by outlining a desired shape for patron approval, then use a thin cotton thread to capture stray hairs at the root, yielding results that are more precise than with waxing and less likely to produce ingrown hairs. Technicians then train their clients in the use of eyebrow products, so brows continue to look full and even between threadings.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
M.E. Laser and Beauty's certified technicians brandish ultramodern technology and old-fashioned techniques to noninvasively smooth, brighten, and exfoliate skin.
