Dermacare owner Jeff Birchall, MD and his staff of friendly nurses and medical aestheticians wield a color-blind Cutera laser to permanently remove hair from most skin types. As the pulse of light zaps each unwanted strand at the root, a CoolGlide hand piece soothes skin with lowered temperatures and whispered recaps of professional golf tournaments. Some patients report a mild pinching or stinging sensation, though no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, and after the treatment, skin may be slightly red and swollen. Most areas require at least five treatments to fully banish hair, depending on its thickness, stage in the growth cycle, and favorite Addams Family character.
In keeping with the mandate set forth by the name over the door, the employees at Grace Threading gracefully engage the arts of threading, waxing, and facials to keep the beauty of their subjects at full wattage. Demonstrating a dextrous control over thread, each technician gently removes hair from the follicle so that bushy eyebrows transform into attractive arches and hair on the forehead or chin disappears altogether without so much as a forwarding address. Facial services, meanwhile, lend the underlying skin a healthy and attractive glow.
Led by medical director Dr. Ariel Cortes, owner and founder Gita Izadi and the rest of the medical team at Neu Look Med Spa & Skin Center help people feel youthful and confident. Izadi opened the business in 2003 with that very goal in mind, drawing upon her more than 25 years of experience as a registered nurse. She started out with clinical services—ranging from Botox to advanced laser procedures—before adding an array of relaxing spa treatments to the lineup in 2009. Now, patients can schedule a fractional CO2 laser skin-resurfacing procedure to combat signs of aging and follow it up with a fragrant pumpkin-apple-spice facial or a soothing body scrub with mineral-rich sea salt.
The waiting area welcomes guests with a soft, pale-blue sofa next to an iridescent wall flanked by twin waterfalls. Patrons nosh on complimentary refreshments as they enjoy fragrant aromatherapy, while a centerpiece of elegant, white orchids provides a tasty snack for any visiting toucans.
