At Skintologyrx, skin expert Abby Haddad makes it her mission to keep the body's largest organ in beautiful health. She uses Rhonda Allison products to soften and nourish skin of all types, whether it's prone to acne or showing unwanted signs of aging. Abby's dermaplaning treatments gently slough off dead skin and out-of-season Halloween masks, and can be combined with treatments such as a wine peel or vitamin A peptide.
For some, a few quick swipes of eyeliner and lipstick are enough to help them face the day. For others, it doesn't even begin to make them feel beautiful, or, at the very least, is just tiresome to deal with day after day. At EverLasting Beauty by CYNDI, Cyndi Gerlach works with clients to create more lasting beauty solutions, whether through the application of permanent makeup or removal of acne scars, stretch marks, and tattoos. She is a certified permanent makeup and paramedical makeup artist, using MRI-safe pigments and FDA-approved equipment to do anything from filling in sparse brows to re-creating full brows lost to alopecia. She can also use her wide range of pigments to reconstruct areolas or fill in areas unpigmented by vitiligo.
At Delight Beauty and Day Spa, aestheticians strive to give patients a retreat from everyday stressors. They stock the waiting room with complimentary beverages and snacks, and while new clients wait, they fill out a form that helps tailor services to their skin and body issues. The spa's private rooms are as quiet and tranquil as a mouse in a library. Clients lie on crisp linens while aestheticians explain their treatments, from facials targeted to skin type to massages that aim to simply relax, reduce chronic muscle aches, or assuage the discomfort of pregnancy. If they are interested, clients can also have staffers inform them about the latest beauty services, such as eyelash extensions or permanent makeup. The team is so experienced in the latter, they train future techs onsite.
The staff members at Anaya Skin Care have a big job to take on—the body’s biggest, in fact. They tend to its largest organ with facials and body scrubs that cleanse pores and remove dead cells to reveal youthful, soft skin. During waxing services, they unveil even more skin by removing unwanted hair from the root. Spray-tanning services darken complexions for a sun-kissed glow during months when the sun is on vacation in the Oort cloud. Meanwhile, permanent-makeup services enhance facial features by lining eyes, filling in brows, and creating full lips.
At the Updegraff Clinic, Dr. Bryan Updegraff and his team of certified specialists tend to skin with dermatological services, allergy testing, and rejuvenating cosmetic treatments. The Candela Vbeam laser's gentle pulsed light penetrates deep into dermises to reduce skin woes, and a cooling mist soothes the skin as the laser works. Injections of Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Perlane reduce the appearance of wrinkles more easily than spackling them with silly putty, and a variety of chemical and acid peels evict depleted skin cells to unleash an inner glow.
Dr. Kelly, RN at LaJollaNecklift.com is a California registered nurse and Doctor of Naturpathic Medicine. She was trained by Allergan, the manufacturers of Botox, during the initial clinical trials of Botox Cosmetic in 1999, and is a veteran in the world of skin-smoothing injections. To promote the growth of the body's stem cell production of collagen synthesis, Dr. Kelly and a fellow colleague created the The Vampira Facial and PRP- Natural Facelift. For more than 14 years her aesthetic repertoire has expanded to include skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and a bevy of other skin-clarifying techniques that leave complexions baby soft and adult durable. She created NewportNeckLift to focus on smoothing rough-textured and draping skin around the neck, which can lose elasticity due to age, weight loss, sun damage, or other factors. This treatment encourages collagen regeneration and skin-tightening and can be done in one sitting with little downtime.
