A medical aesthetician and certified Minkys eyelash extension trainer, Terri Arucha helms It’s The Perfect Touch, where she treats clients to advanced skincare and beauty techniques. She treats acne-prone, aging, and dull skin with a series of skincare treatments, including customized facials, LED skin therapy, and microdermabrasion. Applied one at a time, Terri’s semipermanent lash extensions give eyes a natural-looking pop, enhanced further by an expert makeup application or brow wax.
Dr. Louis Bonaldi harnesses the dexterity and finesse he honed as a concert pianist while performing the Center for Plastic Surgery's slate of surgical and noninvasive services. Equipped with a team of experienced aestheticians, Dr. Bonaldi oversees facelifts and body-slimming procedures that can outfit physiques with a younger-looking appearance more effectively than shopping in the kids' section at a costume shop. A diverse roster of medical skincare services includes microdermabrasion, beauty injections, and laser treatments. The skilled staff also tailors weight-loss programs based on the Paleo Diet system, which replaces processed foods and deep-fried silverware with healthy, sustainable cuisine.
The board-certified aestheticians at Carson Medical Group Cosmetic Laser Center attack stubborn facial and body fuzz with blasts from their powered-up Cutera laser. During each laser hair-removal treatment, a combination of invisible light and constant heat targets hair at the root, impairing the follicle’s ability to hatch its bristle-boosting scheme. Like the date of the moon’s self-destruction, the period of hair's greatest vulnerability is unpredictable, so technicians perform six treatments to ensure assaults at all different points of the hair growth cycle. In the most effective cases, the procedure incapacitates follicles in the targeted area indefinitely.
Amethyst Spa & Salon was founded in 1973 by Yvonne Wilson, who continues to own and operate the center. A licensed aesthetician and holistic practitioner, she has carved out a space where creature comforts tend to the spirit while practitioners tend to the body. Upon arrival, clients are invited to slip into a comfy full-length robe and sip on a complimentary beverage. After treatments, they can relax in the lounge, where soft music, a fireplace, and beverages prolong the effects of their treatment and delay a return to the outside world and to still-unfinished Yahtzee games in their 19th hours.
Of course, it's what happens between those bookend spa moments in that has kept Amethyst in business for more than 40 years. Clients indulge in a deluxe power repair facial, its fruit enzyme exfoliants coaxing radiant colours from the skin. Or, they revel in a warm seaweed and mineral mud wrap, during which botanical extracts send aromas into the air while nourishing ingredients work their magic. The spa also features manicures and pedicures, a salt cave, and a thermo acupressure massage bed.
The stylists and aestheticians at Reno Salon & Spa coif tresses with Redken and Argan Oil hair products and pamper faces and bodies with Yon-Ka skincare products. Cuts and color impart new shape and hue to locks, and facials and waxing treatments leave skin as smooth as a dolphin swaddled in silk. Nail techs polish fingers and toes, and eyes are dressed with semi-permanent mascara or soft eyelash extensions.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Glass, the staff at Esteem Medical Spa and Salon harnesses the power of FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
