Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.
Thanks to a team of versatile stylists, it’s not uncommon for Salon Karisma’s haircuts and treatments to end with strikingly different results—one woman may leave with a playful, modern bob, while another may strut out the salon’s door with streaks of highlights that catch sunlight as she walks. Though diverse, many of these cuts and styles begin with a sudsy shampoo and a consultation that gets clients involved in the creative process.When determining the right cut or color for you, stylists carefully consider aspects such as your facial features and personal style. If the occasion calls for it, they can add curl with perms, length with hair extensions, and volume with stereo barrettes. Their concern for style doesn’t stop at the scalp; the salon’s ear-piercing services give clients the option to adorn their lobes with sparkling studs or flashbulbs with which to stun celebrities before kidnapping them and assuming their identity.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
A cosmetic complex with décor ranging from the chic black tile of its salon to the day spa's bamboo-and-incense ambience, Aventine fills its space with a consummate roster of beautification treatments administered by a highly specialized staff. The classic massage (a $90 value) tailors its 60 minutes of total relaxation to your muscular map's spinal mountain range, flowing energy rivers, and buried treasure chests of stress. A signature 45-minute DermaSweep MD facial (a $150 value) mechanically extracts and exfoliates the face with a gentle vacuum, lifting away dead and deadbeat skin while combating the oxidative aging effects caused by years of reenacting Three Stooges shorts. The treatment begins with a consultation and keeps the skin relaxed throughout with a cleansing massage and therapeutic mask. A one-month professional class membership (a $99 value) to Aventine Spa treats members to a range of discounts on salon, massage, and aesthetic services.
