Aesthetician Sharone Brimer has more than a decade of experience in makeup application and tinting for eyebrows and lashes, but her true passion is for waxing treatments. Using a practiced hand, she quickly and precisely uproots hair from both the face and body to fashion sleek, arched brows or stubble-free legs. Her extreme precision and care even allow her to maintain bikini lines on expectant mothers and wax away fuzz on the most sensitive silverbacks. To complement newly smooth skin, Sharone also offers custom facials that incorporate modern spa techniques, such as glycolic peels and rejuvenating enzymes, all with Dermalogica Skin Care products, which are also available for purchase.
