Led by Dr. Landon Pryor, the skilled technicians at True Laser use Candela GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal and collagen-stimulating skin-rejuvenation treatments. They calibrate the laser's wavelength to suit either purpose, and a cooling device spritzes skin with cryogen immediately after the laser's pulses to make treatments more comfortable for clients.
But not all of True Laser's services are laser-based. Aestheticians polish away dead and dull skin with microdermabrasion treatments, using pure baking-soda crystals—rather than the more commonly used aluminum oxide—to avoid unnecessary skin irritation. They also stock glo therapeutics skincare products—infused with vitamin C and ultrafine fairy dust—for facials tailored toward each client's needs, and they administer facial peels to target signs of aging.
An aesthetician custom blends wax to remove unwanted body hair on all skin types. Hairy backs, chests, legs, and arms on men and women become sleek surfaces, and overgrown eyebrows transform into perfect replicas of the Gateway Arch. The aesthetician also focuses attention on faces with custom facials and microdermabrasion treatments.
Boasting a trifecta of beautifying certifications, owner Julie Nelson serves as the lead cosmetologist, body-sugaring specialist, and semi-permanent mascara technician at J’s Neighborhood Salon and Sugar Shack Wax. She and her dedicated staff merge their expertise to devise a suite of services that include haircuts, hair color, and applications of Cry Baby Mascara, which uses a waterproof, semi-permanent formula to leave lashes dark and voluminous for up to two weeks. Meanwhile, certified Alexandria sugaring technicians use a caramel-like paste made from natural ingredients to remove hair in the direction of growth, much like the method used by beach-vacationing Candyland characters.
