Gold damask and creamy flowers accent Broadway Skin Studio's sleek, all-white interior, fusing ornate, antique beauty with contemporary coolness. Immersed in the bright, sun-flooded rooms, Dr. Richard Mantell helms a team of registered nurses and nurse practitioners as they perform noninvasive and minimally invasive beauty treatments, with an emphasis on comfort and safety. They work to turn back the clock on aging with injectables and microdermabrasion, which are much more reliable than Dr. Babyman's Youth Oil. With their laser treatments, they tackle a range of concerns, including unwanted hair, unsightly spider veins, and sagging skin. Through all their services, the nurses believe in keeping clients informed of all their options, and work to accommodate their needs with customized treatment plans.
Sci-fi movies make it seem like a collection of lasers could only belong to a villain who?s up to no good. However, at Dr. Laser, the stockpile of Candela GentleLase, Lumenis LightSheer, Lutroinc Spectra, and Hoya ConBio lasers are used only for good. Dr. Richard Mantell uses beams of light to zap unwanted body hair or break up permanent ink after a falling out with a former favorite anchor. IPL and laser skin rejuvenation treatments rejuvenate appearance by removing acne, scarring, signs of aging, and discolorations, and the staff uses products from Obagi to clear facial surfaces and Latisse elixirs to grow lashes. In addition to laser treatments, Dr. Laser also offers juvederm and botox treatments to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
For many, a bee farm might stir feelings of anxiety, and perhaps even childlike fear, but not for Germana, founder and owner of Brazilian Honey Waxing. Growing up on a ranch in Brazil, she spent her childhood playing and experimenting with the honey relinquished from her father's bee farm, eventually spinning the sugary substance into a 100% natural wax. Though Germana has since left her Brazilian home for the humming streets of Santa Monica, she still transforms that same honey from her father's farm into batches of organic and hypoallergenic wax for her boutique. Inside her shop, she and her staff of trained aestheticians do away with unwanted hair on every surface, from bikini lines and legs to noses and chestplates made of discarded mannequin parts. Each and every application of Germana's specialty wax sticks directly to the hair follicle, leaving the skin completely free from irritation.
Los Angeles. London. Hong Kong. This may sound like a globetrotter's dream itinerary, but it's really a list of locations where hairstylist Ivy Dobbs trained. In addition to gaining experience in the world?s style capitals, she also studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy?a network of schools that imbues practical, everyday beauty techniques with international sophistication. Now more than a decade into her career, Ivy owns Euphoria Salon. At stations back-dropped by exposed brick, her stylists renovate 'dos, quenching dry ends with Moroccanoil's omega-3 oils and antioxidants or granting a gift of frizz-free months with Brazilian Blowout's straightening system.
