SkinScience Institute is a site of instruction, but that doesn't mean its services aren't professional quality. The aesthetics students who perform them make use of popular Murad and Image skincare products, and they're overseen by highly trained skin experts. Many of the treatments are clinical in nature, including anti-aging peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Other services emphasize natural skincare methods, such as the clay and seaweed wraps that purge clients' pores of toxins and clients' heads of "The Song That Never Ends."
As a full-body perfecting school, Skinworks and its aesthetic armada of students clear smooth, silky paths with a selection of waxing services. Improve Chunnel swim times with a full-leg ($35 for 60 minutes), arm ($15 for 30 minutes), or back ($30 for 60 minutes) wax, or de-fuzz smaller bodily tunnels, such as noses and ears ($7). Lips, chins, and navels bid strands adieu in one fell yank ($7), and bikinis suit up for competition with a 30-minute procedure ($15).
Specializing in noninvasive treatments, Dr. Alireza Falahati and the staff at Lisse Laser and Aesthetics revitalize skin with laser wavelengths and products from SkinCeuticals, GlyMed, ColorScience, and Clarisonic. The facility's chic waiting area greets clients with wooden floors, artwork-clad walls, and black, leather couches that showcase the luxury of hairless arms and legs.
At DermaTech, Carla—an aesthetician with 25 years' experience—leads a team of beauty experts who specialize in treatments ranging from electrolysis and laser hair regrowth to lash tinting. Aestheticians employ Elysée skincare products in five types of facials, all of which include a 3-step cleanse plus a nourishing mask and massage. A permanent makeup artist with two decades of experience performs the center’s permanent makeup sessions, which use a topical anesthetic and specialized tattoo ink to fill in pale lips or redefine eyebrows that have wilted and started to hang off the face.
At Elase spas, teams of nurses and experienced aestheticians smooth skin and tone bodies with dermal fillers, weight-loss therapy, and laser hair removal. Custom laser programs can zap hair from most body surfaces, and skin-rejuvenation treatments use intense pulsed-light therapy to reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
