Bazilia offers a wide variety of waxing options including the popular Brazilian wax ($45), which quickly suits up sunbathers for swimsuit season. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($18) or clear your upper lip and chin ($15 each) to prepare a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin ($40). Migrate away from the mug and take care of gnarly arms ($35) or pair of leggy walking arms ($60).

Skin by Samira’s 15-minute Brazilian waxing smoothes skin beneath the loincloth using hygienic, comfortable practices. A technician begins the waxing by cleansing the nether area, then whisking away hair from both front and back. A numbing spray is available to lessen discomfort, and wax sticks are never double-dipped, ensuring a sanitary grooming. Like a family of snowmen on vacation, any new hair will return thinner and sparser.
Located in a small complex on the corner of Nobel and Lebon Drive in University City, Miraya’s European Skin Care has been serving the skin care needs of a fiercely loyal clientele for more than fifteen years. Miraya services both men and women, specializing in treatment for acne-prone skin, facials, waxing and threading, as well as anti-aging treatments and stress-reducing therapy massages. The staff subscribes to a basic principle that every client’s needs and conditions are different, and that the treatment should follow suit in adapting to these variables. The space here is small but clean and welcoming, and Miraya creates a comfortable atmosphere for her clients to relax during their treatment.
Having struggled with acne as an adolescent, licensed aesthetician Marina Aris developed a passion for skincare that lights up her own visage as she freshens faces with custom facials and PCA Skin chemical peels. Marina also gently disappears unwanted fuzz with low-temperature Cirepil wax, pledging to never double-dip or give away clients' contact information to former hairs trying to get back in touch. Trained to use PCA Skin peeling potions to rid visages of dead cells and reveal the radiant layers beneath, Marina's commitment to high-quality products also leads her to line her shelves with potions from the CA Botana natural skincare line.
A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
