Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
Dr. John O. Dimowo wears many hats in his pursuit of beauty. He utilizes his extensive training and wide array of medical skills to help his clients improve their physical appearance. He is a fully certified practitioner of SmartLipo™ treatments, and the even less invasive Exilis treatments, which use heat to diminish the size of fat cells. He also deftly wields needles as he administers Botox to smooth away the signs of aging or performs acupuncture to relieve bodily tension.
He also lends his medical prowess to more in-depth medical procedures as a Cardiovascular Anesthesiologist. And most recently, he became certified to conduct non-diagnostic 3-D/4-D ultrasounds, to give parents a glance at their child-to-be and all the gum they've swallowed over the years.
At Bella Aesthetics, the team works hard to make their work look invisible. Clients who come to Bella for custom cosmetic procedures do so in part because of the doctors' emphasis on natural-looking enhancement. That goes for all the work the doctors and staff perform, whether they're combating wrinkles with Botox and Dysport injections or dissolving varicose veins with sclerotherapy. The only work the team can't help getting attention for is their custom weight-loss plans, which help clients trim down with prescription injections.
The team of medical providers at Rejuvenating Skin Care tends to weary bodies through a hybrid of medical and spa services, instilling beautification amid burnt-orange and tan walls set aglow by warm candlelight. For laser hair removal, trained nurse practitioners brandish their high-tech follicle zappers, which inhibit hair growth while soothing skin with cooling spray between each pulse. Juvéderm dermal fillers and microdermabrasion treatments vanquish signs of aging, and Latisse works with magic beans to help sprout longer, fuller lashes.
At Forever Young Aesthetic Center, technicians wield a range of powerful lasers to perform aesthetic treatments: Fraxel units restore youthful appeal, and specialized Cutera lasers prevent the growth of unwanted hair. The team also employs other technology such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Latisse elixirs to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and lengthen lashes, respectively. Meanwhile, the reception staff entertains guests with magazines, cups of tea, and open-mic opportunities in the waiting area.
