In a minimalist office with ivory carpeting and black accents, Dr. Glenn Detlefsen and his staff polish away fine lines and resurface skin with injectables, laser treatments, photofacials, and peels, which can bring a youthful glow to visages without permanently situating them over a birthday cake with five flickering candles. The center bases treatments on results from Visia digital skin analysis, which investigates six aspects contributing to the health and appearance of clients' facial features, including the depth and frequency of wrinkles, the size of pores, and the number of freckles feigned with magic marker.
Golden Tan Salons recognizes the importance of cultivating an eye-catching glow at all four of their area locations. After a complimentary tour and consultation, certified tanning professionals direct patrons toward quick misting in a spray-tanning booth. Horizontal, vertical, and open-style beds build tans with UV light instead of bronze Legos as patrons enjoy features such as built-in air conditioning and aromatherapy. The team also recommends products to nourish skin and extend the life of tans.
Drawing on experience as a makeup artist for a modeling agency, aesthetician Meg Hume transfers the glossy look of a magazine photo shoot onto three-dimensional faces. Wielding the Stream Airbrush system, Meg crop-dusts visages, chasing away blights and blemishes with makeup chock full of moisturizing minerals that feels lighter than traditional makeup, which is generally made from cement and rose petals.
The Eastern art of brow threading has become wildly popular in the United States, a trend aesthetician Almas Karowalia astutely followed, enabling her to open 15 locations of Perfect Brow Bar across the Midwest, Texas, and Louisiana. At each outpost, practitioners clean up uneven brows and hairlines with strands of twisted thread that can remove multiple rows of hair with a single pass. Her teams boast that they can complete brows in as little as 5 minutes and require only 10¬–15 minutes to thread an entire face. The expedient technique generally results in less pain and irritation than other hair-removal methods, though at Perfect Brow Bar patrons can also opt for traditional waxing services. In addition to hair removal, aestheticians dress up skin with makeup applications, lash extensions, and henna tattoos of tuxedos or ball gowns.
The staff at Wendy's Spa Services draws on more than 15 years of industry experience to blur the distinction between relaxation and beautification. Though many of their treatments are geared toward achieving aesthetic results, the staff commonly helps promote an inner state of calm with soothing add-ons. Reflexology, for example, can accompany mani-pedis, just as customized facials may include remedies for puffy eyes, and massages regularly make use of hot towels and aromatherapy. The staff relies on their own considerable artistry, as well as products from glo therapeutics, OPI, and Nufree—an alternative to wax that doesn't stick to the skin or cause one to be mistaken for one’s more famous wax-museum counterpart.
