Led by Dr. Richard Castellano and Dr. Randall Weyrich—renowned facial plastic surgeons who have performed thousands of face-lifts—the cosmetic professionals at Image Lift encourage clients to explore their options before making a treatment decision. To that end, the doctors offer weekly seminars, free consultations, and a series of medically themed choose-your-own-adventure novels to prospective clients in order to answer any questions they may have regarding procedures such as Botox, laser resurfacing, and ultrasonic skin tightening. When they aren't freshening faces in the office or spending time with their families, the specialists raise awareness for local and national causes.
Katie Emily spent years as a legal assistant and real-estate agent before opting for a more hands-on career as the owner of Katie's Salon. Today, she works closely with a staff of stylists and nail technicians to give women, men, and kids updated takes on classic styles. As clients step into the full-service salon, which also offers hair, nails, massage, facials, and tanning services, they'll be greeted with a glass of wine, soda, or coffee to sip while they wait.
The hairstylists at Millennium Hair Salon design ’dos for men, women, and children with an eye to both form and function. They finish haircuts by working with flatirons and blow dryers and using Keune hair products to keep strands in place. They also craft silky tresses with perms, gild strands with highlights, and use Goldwell colors to imbue coiffures with dimension. When these stylists are not arranging cranial fringe, they skillfully remove unwelcome facial fuzz with warm wax—or go home and talk with friends and family about how they remove unwelcome facial fuzz with warm wax.
Botanical formulas meet modern technology at Face & Body Tonics, where beauty technicians rely on both to design spa treatments that enhance bodies' health and appearance from the inside out while promoting relaxation and rejuvenation. The spa?s cosmetic-teeth-whitening treatments exemplify this approach, pairing a pH-balanced whitening formula with light, pressure, and heat to erase stains caused by drinking coffee and eating oil paintings of fruit. The spa's licensed-massage therapist, Maribel, specializes in Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. Among the spa?s skin-and-body treatments, mummy-style body wraps crafted from an aloe-herb solution work to restore skin's firmness and elasticity. This ancient-Egyptian method finds its space-age counterpart in the infrared technology of a Solocarbon sauna that raises the body?s temperature to detoxify tissue, reduce chronic pain, and aid in weight loss. Those seeking more surface adjustments can enlist the services of Perfectly New You, which treats clients to permanent makeup and tattoo removal services to polish their presence.
Sheer Drama's dedicated stylists equip clients with confidence through salon treatments that highlight individual beauty. Above-the-neck makeovers begin with a hair facial, gently exfoliating the scalp and removing impurities left behind by products, hard water, and using your head as a papier-mâché piñata mold. After the facial, the stylist applies a deep-conditioning treatment infused with antioxidants and soy proteins, which can help console damaged, dry, and color-treated strands by restoring elasticity and mending split ends. Scissors then toss on a pair of cleats so that they can more easily grab hold of slippery-smooth hair, which is cut and styled into a shape that complements facial features, including freshly waxed eyebrows and mouth hoods.
