Situated in a vintage home that pays homage to years past with its baroque mirrors and antique furnishings, Vanity on Mill Hair Gallery & Spa seems like a strange place to seek out youth. The salon’s charmingly out-of-date decor, however, belies a mission to promote wrinkle-free complexions and hairstyles that radiate hipness.
It’s one thing to be in tune with the times, but Vanity on Mill’s stylists go a step further. They begin all of their cuts with informal consultations, during which they gauge each client’s personality before devising a style to match. The aestheticians and massage therapists share this concern for custom treatments, drawing from an extensive menu to find the right fit for acne-prone skin or strained muscles. The salon also infuses skin with bronze hues courtesy of UV-free spray tans, eliminating the need to awkwardly hug one of the Sun Devils attending classes across the street.
Niches indicate a masterful knowledge of that area, whether it’s a radio station that only plays grunge rock or a restaurant that exclusively serves steak. AZ Laser Lipo’s niche is its weight loss Laser Lipolysis treatment. This FDA-approved lipolysis procedure trims inches by deflating fat cells of their contents, which are then eliminated through natural bodily processes. The staff optimizes slimming results through a four-step treatment composed of a consultation, body measurements, an i-Lipo treatment, and post-treatment workout. This comprehensive approach helps patients maintain their weight-loss efforts and personalizes plans without writing them on monogrammed bathrobes.
Few women enjoy climbing out of a cozy bed to blearily begin their daily beauty regimen. Licensed medical aesthetician Andrea Sandoval helps clients reclaim their REM hours with her menu of permanent-makeup services. Using a blend of cosmetic pigments crafted from natural ingredients, Andrea carefully applies deft shades to the dermal layer of the skin to create makeup that won’t rub away when swimming, sleeping, or checking to see if the water hose is clogged. She can enhance brows to add definition to the face’s overall appearance, add a lush darkness to lash lines, or emphasize lips’ plumpness. Andrea can also blend the natural pigments to match skin tone, seamlessly masking complexion imperfections once and for all.
Working with the notion that the eyebrows define the face, the threading specialists at Beautif-Eye Studios take care to shape brows into alluring arches without irritating the skin. The threading artists use a pair of tightly wound strands to pluck out stray hairs instead of using waxes or security guards to forcefully evict them. For further beautification, classic European facials brighten skin with a customized blend of products, and oxygenating facials refresh and awaken dull skin by stimulating circulation. Massages of Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy modalities relieve stress, while facial peels hydrate and mend damaged skin.
Under the guidance of Dr. Richard Burgmeier, the technicians at Perfect Skin Laser Center strive to offer the most advanced aesthetic treatments available. Their private clinic performs a variety of services using powerful beams, ranging from laser hair removal and light-based facials to noninvasive body contouring. Though laser treatments comprise the bulk of their procedures, they also specialize in products such as Botox and chemical peels. No matter what the method, Dr. Burgmeier and his staff aim to leave clients looking natural, like the majestic rocks of Mt. Rushmore.
The OC Laser's technicians serve up skin-smoothing services to women, men, and otters looking for a streamlined edge. Medical director Dr. Michael Miller also offers B12 injections, pain-management services, Botox, fillers, and weight-loss programs.
