Board-certified dermatologists Robert B. Strimling and Lionel J. Handler call upon their mutual expertise in cosmetic and laser services to help patients maintain healthy and radiant exteriors. In additional to general dermatology treatments for acne, rosacea, and other topical blemishes, the doctors perform a multitude of laser-powered cosmetic treatments to rid skin of hair, varicose veins, and tattoos of relocated sports teams. The advanced dermatology center also restores façades to factory conditions with skin-renewing services such as chemical peels and FDA-approved injections of Botox and Dysport.
Although aesthetician Nicole Maldonado is an expert wax technician, you won't find any wax in her studio. Instead, she removes unwanted hair with the same sugaring techniques the ancient Egyptians relied on. As a certified sugaring educator, she lauds the many benefits of sugar over wax. For one, sugar isn't hot, so there's no risk of clients getting burnt. For another, it eases out strands in their natural direction of growth to prevent breakage and ingrown hairs.
Kimberly Byers's desire to help clients maintain healthy, radiant skin stems from her own skin problems—as a teen, the licensed aesthetician suffered from acne and oily skin. Her custom facials deeply cleanse skin without over drying it, and a selection of chemical peels provides advanced exfoliation. Located down a quiet hallway, Kim's warm and soothing treatment room features a padded bed and essential oils by Young Living Oils.
The aestheticians at Creative Nails are trained experts in nailcare, facials, and waxing. Treatments make use of top-notch products from brands such as OPI and Creative Nail Design. The salon is also known for its cleanliness; all equipment is disinfected using hospital-grade disinfectants.
The self-proclaimed “waxperts” at Wax Hair Removal Bar eliminate stubble and fuzz with a combination of cream and hard waxes. Though they’re predominantly known for servicing male clients—more than 40 percent of their customers are men—they offer waxing services to all, and remove hairs from nearly every part of the body, from the eyebrows to the toes. They can supplement waxes with Swarovski Crystal tattoos or other aesthetic services, from bikini treatments that prevent ingrown hairs to the ultimate chest treatment, which keeps acne away from six-packs like a chaperone on a middle-school camping trip. The bar also dolls up patrons with brow- and lash-tinting services as well as lip services powered by a blend of shea butter and avocado oil.
In ancient Persia, threading was more than a beauty ritual—it was a rite of passage. Beautifiers would thread a bride’s entire face before she walked down the aisle, and give girls similar treatments to signal their transitions to womanhood. Today, Fabulous Eyebrow Threading’s staff members enlist the historically significant practice to accentuate the faces of their clients. They snag and remove entire lines of eyebrow or lip hair with one swift tug, making threading more precise but less painful than tweezing or poking each hair until it is so annoyed that it uproots itself and leaves. They can also use soft wax on faces and bodies if patrons prefer it, and can embellish or refresh newly groomed visages with lash extensions and facials.
