Dr. Cynthia M. Lopez began her medical career in the Philippines, returning to her hometown after medical school to provide health care to families who could not otherwise afford it. Since that time, Dr. Lopez has become an expert laser cosmetic surgeon, helping enhance the beauty of her clients within a practice designed to evoke the calm and relaxation of Mariveles, her archipelago hometown. Dr. Lopez and her staff aim to demystify the advanced techniques they deploy in pursuit of increasing each patient's confidence, walking them through the steps of liposuction, skin treatments, cosmetic injections, and how exactly they manage to steal and replace the noses of children.
The technicians at Thread & Sugar embrace a natural approach to beauty, whether they are practicing ancient Eastern hair-removal methods or hand-mixing organic facial ingredients right before the client's eyes. An organic salon located in the Central Valley, they use nail polishes free of DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene, and organic, herbal hair color products that are non-toxic. Even the cleaning products they use are eco-friendly and the space is equipped with an onsite purifier that keeps dust, allergens, and debris from invading the air.
Eyebrows serve many useful functions, from helping people express themselves to catching dripping hair gel before it can permanently adhere people's eyeballs to their lids. Properly maintaining the eyebrows—which help define and accentuate facial features—is an essential part of the beautification process. That's where Brow Beauty - formally known as I Bar - comes in. With intertwining strands of cotton thread, stylists shape overgrown brows without causing unnecessary skin trauma. Staffers can also extend this ancient practice to such facial areas as the chin, forehead, and neck.

Brazilian waxes quell unwanted fuzz for a longer time than shaving, leaving skin smooth during beach vacations and extended stays in sand-filled lockers.
