The licensed aestheticians at Oregon Cosmetic Laser power most of their cosmetic treatments with elos technology?a one-two punch of laser energy and radio frequency. That combination helps the Syneron laser remove hair and virtually erase skin blemishes or spider veins. It even makes it possible for the VelaShape device to nearly eliminate cellulite, turning it into ethanol. For slightly less space-age palliatives, the med spa trots out ReFirme and triniti skin-tightening treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions, all of which are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Jason Hong.
Plush pedicure chairs and intimate manicure stations line the citrus-hued walls of 10 Nails & Spa's spotless salon. Nail services include basic mani-pedis, during which staffers tidy up hands and feet before adorning tips in colorful coats of popular OPI nail polish. Nail techs can also spruce up the hands for upcoming thumb wars with acrylic services, french designs, and creative nail art. 10 Nails & Spa's resident wax wielders remove unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows down to toe knuckles with quick swipes of a cloth strip, including a thorough Brazilian waxing treatment for ladies.
Gigi's specializes in exotic and ancient hair removal techniques. Threading harnesses the towing power of 100% cotton to evict undesirable facial tendrils, leaving eyebrows shapely or nonexistent. Discerning cotton strands chuck only the unwanted hairs, leaving facial surfaces more composed than after waxing, shaving, or getting kissed by a stranger. Resultant arched brows can retain their winsome shapes for two to four weeks.
Wax Loft?owner Carissa has been dubbed the "trifecta of waxers"?she's quick, clean, and talkative. Her goal, along with her partner Elizabeth, is to render clients' skin smooth-to-the-touch with a careful and focused technique, but she cites her sense of humor and likable demeanor as traits that help her clients relax with the faith that she'll leave their intended areas as smooth as a baby's silk pajamas. Working alongside an Aveda Institute graduate who shares the talent for creating a warm and comfortable space, Carissa and Elizabeth offer face, body, and bikini waxes with equal parts precision and personality, as well as brow and lash tinting to put the finishing touches on each client's look.

The esthetician's skincare services keep clients’ exteriors feeling supple and smooth with treatments for a variety of needs, including glycolic peels for uneven pigmentation, teen facials for acne-prone skin, and back facials for the tiny faces that hide between the shoulder blades. A master of more than just skin, McKillion also performs waxing services as well as brow and lash-tining services.
Cristina Atencio has spent more than 15 years perfecting her skills as an aesthetician. She wields her practiced hand at Isabel Blackwell to pamper guests with relaxing facials.

She also offers a specialty facial, a completely customized skincare treatment performed only after an in-depth skin analysis. Atencio also cleans up clients' unwanted hair with waxing services, including brows, legs, and Brazilians.
