At His and Hers Elegant Edge Hair Salon, expertly trained hairdressers cut and style clients’ hair using Redken and Paul Mitchell products and make tresses soft and shiny with conditioning treatments. Other services include updos, waxing, gel nails, pedicures, and shellac manicures. This laid-back salon takes its energy from the bubbling sound of friendly stylist consultations and decor that includes brightly colored walls, pop-art prints of celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn, and an in-house pup named Faye, who wanders around inspecting the latest hairstyles.
Tina Malooly-McCaffrey—a sufferer of severe acne with a family history of skin cancer—has devoted her career to learning about dermis health, and she founded Advanced Skincare in 1989 to help patrons realize dreams of glowing complexions. The licensed cosmetologist, massage therapist, laser technician, and skincare educator has gathered a team of licensed and certified pampering professionals to rejuvenate facades. With every service, from anti-aging facials to microdermabrasion treatments to help blast away dead skin cells and outdated "Vote for Lincoln" henna tattoos, the staff assesses skin and health for personalized treatment plans. Beyond skincare, the beauty experts also apply professional-level makeup and administer advanced IPL hair removal for the entire body to save clients the hassle of waxing, tweezing, or rolling on a pile of Velcro.
Xolo, which takes its name from a hairless breed of Mexican dog, specializes in lasering unwanted hair into oblivion, thus freeing patients from the pain of waxing and tweezing, the burn of the razor, and the discomfort of duct tape peels. Your three laser hair removal treatments will be undertaken by Dr. Peggy Ku, a certified physician who uses the Cynosure Elite laser system to provide personalized results based on your skin color, hair type, and hair color (unfortunately, treatments aren't effective against white, gray, light blond, or red hair). An interval of six to eight weeks separates each laser session; most clients should see smooth, lasting results and a loss of at least 90% of their hair after a total of six treatments.
Specializing in skin-softening and pore-purifying nonsurgical treatments, Aesthetíque Impressions employs trained techniques to refresh and restore skin. Certified aesthetician Margarita, who spends her off hours providing complimentary beauty treatments to cancer patients, is a skin soothsayer, using her decade of experience to brighten and revitalize each bit of visage-vellum she encounters. An intense-cleansing facial will refresh the body's naturally occurring billboard with an exhilarating cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, massage, and mask, and the naturally occurring salicylic acid in the pumpkin peel will purge pores and boost circulation with an infusion of nutritious vitamins.
Dawna Brisebois of Pioneer Valley Electrolysis debunks the myth that all hair-removal techniques are created equal. Plucking, tweezing, and waxing can cause hair to grow back even thicker than before, and lasers only target dark pigments—these methods may be less effective on blonde, grey, and red hair colors. But electrolysis puts an end to unwanted hair. The precise treatment targets each individual follicle with a quick pulse of energy that puts an end to regrowth, and is safe and effective for all skin and hair types.
La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center?s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Thermilift, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin?s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique?s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.
