Most 12-year-olds have no idea what they want to do with their lives, but that?s when Maria DeNicola first found the inspiration to study electrolysis. As of today, she?s been doing electrolysis for more than 32 years and has even devised an all-new technique to attack full follicles with alternating current. DeNicola also eliminates unwanted body hair through laser hair removal or break-dance competitions on sandpaper.
With the help of her med spa team, which includes two registered nurses, DeNicola pampers faces with microdermabrasion, lasers, and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin, as well as fights wrinkles with Botox and Juvederm injections. DeNicola happily serves members of the transgender community with her services and formerly acted as president of transgender support group A Rose.
Licensed aesthetician Leslie VanderBeek makes her professional home at Advanced Skin Care Solutions, where she implements beauty services that keep clients relaxed and recharged on the inside and out. After a complimentary consultation, VanderBeek can perform one of many personally tailored skin-rejuvenation services, concocting facials for men, women, and teens, or treating aging or damaged exteriors with effective Jessner chemical peels. Using her SofTap certification, VanderBeek bestows visages with a more abiding beauty solution through permanent-makeup treatments for the eyes, lips, or gills.
Mitti Arabella Davis, a licensed aesthetician, founded Arabella's Total Skin Care in 2005. Today, she polishes her clients with services that combat skin damage wrought by father time and his moody cousin, the environment. Arabella's microdermabrasion and chemical peels launch deep attacks at enlarged pores and uneven pigmentation, while a variety of facials take a gentler approach. Her signature oxygenation facial provides an especially delicate caress, drawing oxygen to the skin's surface to produce a warm and radiant glow. Waxing, makeup artistry, and eyelash extensions are the finishing touches on her service menu's blushing visage.
At LaToyes Touch of Beauty, licensed cosmetologists can overhaul hair in a single session with extensions, Matrix hair color, chemical services, braids, custom hairpieces, and wigs. Beyond the hair treatments that make up the majority of LaToyes?s services, the staff extends eyelashes with extensions, thus improving one?s chances of successfully flirting with a butterfly.
Elizabeth Trevino, licensed aesthetician and skincare educator, polishes her patrons’ appearances with facials, body waxing, and eyelash-extension services. Specializing in Xtreme eyelash extensions, Trevino carefully selects varying lengths and thicknesses of faux lashes to blend seamlessly with natural sets, bonding them lash by lash to create volume and length. Water-resistant Xtreme lashes hug lids for up to six weeks of mascara-free winking, eventually shedding from natural lashes during their growth cycle or after riding a motorcycle over a bonfire. During skin-treatment sessions, Trevino educates clients about skin types and proper care while smoothing faces with brightening microdermabrasion sessions, moisturizing hydra facials, and pumpkin peels that brighten expressions more effectively than dipping one’s face in wood varnish.
Jessica, the sole aesthetician at JT Aesthetics, redefines and revamps her clients' appearances with waxing, tanning, eyelash treatments, and facial services. Minimalistic decor and earth-toned walls fill the space, and organic Rhonda Allison skincare products fill the shelves before being used during facials and chemical peels. Jessica specializes in hair removal and applies a gentle, all-natural wax that doubles as a teller that checks every hair's withdrawal slip. Spa-goers can also reward their skin with a healthy, glowing tan that uses an organic airbrush spray-tanning solution. Jessica remains dedicated to her craft by attending continuing-education courses in Phoenix, LA, and the Fountain of Youth.
