No two treatments at Michigan Advanced Aesthetics are quite alike. The experienced aestheticians and skin specialist know just how to customize a facial or chemical peel for a client's specific set of issues, from wrinkles to acne to melasma (dark patches of skin). The team of nurses can also administer injectables like Botox, perhaps during a private party at the spa.
Other treatments work together to deliver results. Microdermabrasion, for example, can combine with a peel to fight signs of aging and give pores a message that says "we're watching you." The center also touts the benefits of Advanced Dermapen Collagen Induction, which relies on tiny needles to help stimulate collagen production across the body.
Classic and modern hairstyles abound inside Salon Retro, with stylists busy trimming, coloring, perming, and braiding hair. Away from the whirl of blow-dryers and friendly chatter, private rooms host clients during relaxing massages. The salon’s nail technicians finish off manicures with a choice of polish, and can paint on artistic designs such as polka dots or the client’s phone number in Braille.
Robin Manoogian, a makeup artist with nearly 30 years of experience, leads a talented team of aestheticians, cosmetologists, and massage therapists in making clients feel beautiful. Whether revealing secrets on how to enhance features with her custom Takhoui cosmetics or artfully shaping brows with tweezers, Robin works with clients to achieve the desired look. Her staff also purifies natural canvases with facials for all skin types—even those going through stages of surgical healing.
An Emmy award winning makeup artist and her team of trained lash technicians create flawless looks inside Wink Beauty & Lash Studio. Using high-pigment makeup from Purely Pro Cosmetics, the experienced, easygoing experts beautify clients by applying lush faux lashes or full makeup.
At The Smokey Eye, owner Kimberly Williams and her staff of aestheticians and cosmetologists beautify clients with professional makeup, hairstyling, and eyelash extensions. The staff also hosts classes that teach women about many nuanced aspects of makeup application.
Salon Cardon owners Donetta Behen and Carrie German view their salon as a stage. Being an All Nutrient education salon, they perform custom haircuts and coloring treatments with an all-star cast of products from Moroccan Oil. Keratin Express, and Wella. Behind their sleek black styling stations topped with stone counters, stylists spotlight clients' new looks ranging from rich single-process color to creative pink and purple hues. Away from the salon floor, nail technicians audition new OPI polishes on fingers and toes or add coats of long-lasting shellac that keeps nails more chip-free than cartoon chipmunk Dale after that labrador attack.
