Yulia brought her skin-revitalizing talents to Yulia's Skin Care after attaining the status of master aesthetician in Boston, where her work earned her spots on Best of Boston lists in area publications such as Stuff magazine. With certifications in microdermabrasion, enzyme peels, and stone facials, she has the training to adeptly coerce blemishes and discolorations from the face using a slew of skin treatments. For each treatment, Yulia's Skin Care's aestheticians select from their arsenal of nourishing products, and even arm themselves with specialty products, such as heated mittens and pumpkin-enzyme purées, for massages and facials. They also leverage their expertise to exfoliate, steam, and massage the skin on their clients' backs, shape brows, and wax away hair that refuses to take the bait of staticy balloon animals.

It's tough to relax just before a waxing appointment. With that in mind, renowned architect Chris Kofitsas decided to design Bare to inspire total serenity. To do that, he outfitted the reception area with its own porch swing, hung whimsical lanterns from the ceiling, and covered accent walls with full-sized pictures of nature scenes.

The peaceful, garden-like atmosphere certainly helps put male and female clients at ease, but the wax itself helps just as much. It's a specialized aromatherapy wax that wraps around the hair while avoiding the skin for a much more comfortable experience. In addition to using the wax, the experienced technicians can get rid of unwanted hairs by sugaring them with an all-natural paste, threading them away, or serving them notarized eviction notices. To accommodate clients interested in putting the finishing touches on their newly smoothed looks, they also offer airbrush tans and peels.

She was seven years old today, unemployed, with two playground divorces behind her. Seven candles waited for her outside the locked bathroom door, along with 22 guests and 13 parents with digital cameras. The distant braying of a quaint horn signified the arrival of an underpaid clown. She punched the mirror.
