Albany Dermatology's board-certified dermatologists help clients maintain healthy, lustrous skin. With the nonsurgical microdermabrasion treatment, a highly controlled spray of fine crystals lifts away layers of dead skin cells to leave faces feeling smooth. Without the excess stockpiles of dull cells, the skin will show its true pigmentation, appearing more vibrant and even toned and allowing for easier application of makeup. The treatment takes around 20 minutes, making it a suitable way to refresh during lunch hours or to avoid the first two-thirds of a sitcom and skip straight to the hugging. In addition to relieving skin-cell ailments, the clinic also offers cosmetic procedures such as cutaneous surgery, Botox, and sclerotherapy.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
Permanent Beauty Day Spa's skin-savvy squad of professional aestheticians buff and beautify skeleton sheaths to a healthy sheen. Before beginning a complete epidermal overhaul, experts extend a complimentary skin consultation, gifting guests the opportunity to call out problems, concerns, and Jeopardy answers. The spa's signature facial whips slappable surfaces into shape with an individualized cleansing cream, followed by an infused serum to bolster facial massage benefits, and an antioxidant mask (a $65 value). Then, staff members comfort desert-wandering fingers with moisturizing gloves, and massage knot-riddled necks, shoulders, and hands. Set-Me-Free body wraps paradoxically bind recipients with plastic as they transport toxins from fat cells to the lymphatic system, aiming to detoxify without dehydrating (a $65 value). The six-layer paradise hand massage caps off a deluge of body pampering with a nod to the oft-neglected knuckles, leaving fingers as smooth and brilliant as Plato after a full-body wax (a $35 value).
Since 1998, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael P. Butler has run his practice with a strong focus on getting to know his patients' situations and problems before beginning treatment. Rather than rushing into one of the center's various services, each appointment starts off with an assessment designed to help prescribe customized courses of action and determine if patients have a vestigial tail. Dr. Butler and his team of spinal superheroes then use spinal adjustments, applied kinesiology, cold-laser therapy, and other treatments to remedy ailments ranging from chronic back pain to headaches, stress, and general fatigue.
Let the experienced aestheticians at Serenity Salon & Spa defuzz dermis with a round of laser hair-removal sessions. Customers can feel the fur-felling power of light beams on their choice of three areas, including underarms ($200), abdomens ($200), and standard bikini lines ($250). Each nearly painless laser blast lasts 15 to 30 minutes, depending on skin and hair type. Space all three treatments out to maximize effectiveness and test follicles' long-term memories. Since obstinate stubble can require six to eight sessions to achieve long-lasting results, smoothness-seekers have the option to purchase two of today's Groupons. Results may vary with different skin and hair types, but a pre-treatment consultation will determine the best course of action from patient to patient.
For nearly 25 years, board-certified physician and ob-gyn Dr. Monte Slater, has helped clients achieve the body they crave. Since completing his residency at the Naval Hospital San Diego, Dr. Slater has helmed the medical field as a leader with positions as a Department Chairman, Director of Surgical Services, Medical Director and Deputy Chief of Staff. He specializes in removing fat from the body, either removing it permanently with Pure Lipo's small syringes or removing it from one area of the body and then carefully injecting it into another area, such as the hand, face, or rear, to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Slater is also certified to perform Dermapen procedures—a technique that allows regions of the face and skin to be specifically targeted for the stimulation of collagen production. For less invasive fat-busting treatments, the vacuum technology of Aesthetic Body Sculpture Clinic's Synergie Aesthetic Massage System breaks up cellulite with vacuum suction so it can drain from the body, leaving it smoother than Michelangelo's David after his weekly wax.
