Zaibees weaves the Eastern technique of eyebrow threading into its arsenal of traditional and modern beautification methods. Using only a skillfully maneuvered cotton thread, a dexterous expert will twist and roll the strand along the client's skin to remove renegade brow bristles while creating less epidermal irritation. Fast and simple, the procedure guides clients toward finely sculpted brows without the insensitivity of waxing stray hairs or ruthlessly berating them until they yank themselves out of the skin.
The spa staff operates on the philosophy that beauty and wellness result from the body's sense of balance, and its freedom from impurities. This approach leads technicians and aestheticians to use natural and organic products, as well as noninvasive mechanical processes, when they rejuvenate faces and bodies. They specialize in eyelash extensions long enough to reach for healthy produce, and in nonsurgical face-lifts that use microcurrent, LED, or galvanic current. Other clinical facial therapies include chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and the staff is also skilled in waxing.
Lasting Lines started as most great businesses start: with eyebrows. Now 35 years have passed, and Renee Ryan’s permanent-makeup business has blossomed into a successful aesthetic school and clinic. Renee and her highly trained staff can outfit clients with new brows, or use their modern electrolysis equipment to remove hair, skin tags, moles, and spider veins. Clients may also solicit Lasting Lines for sleek eyelash extensions, or retreat to a private room for a soothing deep-tissue massage from registered massage therapist Charles Linville.
Dr. Gregory D. Roberts of Roberts Cosmetic Surgery Center specializes in beauty from the neck up. As a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, he puts his skills to work lifting faces, augmenting weak features, and minimizing ones that are hogging the spotlight. His goal is to bring faces into aesthetic harmony through surgery or less-invasive injectables, both of which he performs personally.
Off the clock, Dr. Roberts also shares his services with a program called Face to Face. This organization matches victims of domestic abuse with surgeons who then volunteer to repair their facial injuries.
High-profile celebrities have tapped Nev Moses for her talent in eyelash design. At Lash Therapy by Nev, she brings that same talent to the public, adorning sets of eyes with natural and thick lash extensions that add a sultry peripheral to the face’s most stunning features. She and her team of stylists and master stylists offer extensions, touchups, refills, and brow waxes.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
