In the meticulous hands of Board Certified dermatologist Dr. Robin Knuttel, Sonoma Skin’s precision laser eradicates extraneous hair from upper lips and chins (a $150 value/treatment), underarms (a $125 value/treatment), or bikini regions (a $150 value/treatment, front area only). As potent photon machetes hack away unsightly foliage, the light treatment stymies future regrowth by targeting pigments at the heart of the follicles and jacking up rents far beyond the bristles’ pay grade. Under the safe beams of GentleLASE and GentleYAG lasers, filament elimination generally yields only mild discomfort, which can be assuaged with a cooling spray. After repelling cosmetic menaces, Sonoma Skin keeps potentially rebellious epidermal elements in check with an eyebrow waxing (a $30 value).
Grapevine Skin Care beautifies clients with facials and waxing services. Facials enhance complexion using organic Moon Essence products paired with hand, neck, and shoulder massages, and Nufree Nudesse products whisk away unwanted hair.
Debra's Corner's stylists straighten strands and eliminate up to 95% of frizz in kink-prone locks with the protein-based Coppola keratin blowout treatment ($200). During the one-hour treatment, mane technicians scrub scalps with a clarifying shampoo to wash away hair product residues, oils, and the lingering scents of nesting ravens. Newly cleaned curls drink in the hair treatment, absorbing the keratin protein deep into the cuticle and smoothing frizzed follicles. After their release from plastic captivity, tendrils run through the wind of a hair dryer and slide through a flatiron until they emerge as glossy and sleek as a new driver's license.
A company started by aesthetician school friends, Amazing Face Organic Skin Care pampers beauty seekers with a variety of nutrient-rich, organic skin care services in a tranquil environment. Exfoliation explorers can treat faces to organic, chemical-free facials, such as the replenishing antioxidant treatment ($85 for an hour), which helps smarten up dull skin with vitamins and antioxidants while smoothing fine lines and bringing moisture to dermal deserts. If skin's in chaos, opt for the blemish clearing facial ($85 for an hour), which zaps unwanted face accessories with a hydroxy-acid treatment, taking apple, lemons, and raw sugar to clear blemishes and give dermal zones a refreshing sip of lemonade. An eye mask is included in each of the facial services to treat tired peepers to a specialized fruit stem cellular repair treatment and double as a disguise for swashbuckling Zorro reenactments.
