Owner Norma Kahl and licensed aestheticians promote beautiful complexions through medical-grade skincare treatments within a welcoming aesthetic laser center. SilkySkin Laser Centers’ team uses the latest in skincare technology, including the PicoSure tattoo-removal laser, prime laser hair-removal and cooling systems Cynosure Elite Aesthetic workstation, and SmartCool 6. Along with laser hair removal and laser weaponry seminars, skincare treatments range from laser vein removal and laser facial treatments to microdermabrasion facials and chemical peels.
The beauticians at Silk & Stone connect East and West with a repertoire of Middle Eastern–inspired spa services, products, and workshops that beautify and illuminate members of each culture. Silk & Stone’s resident henna artist develops a lengthy list of retail products, from botanical-based haircare blended with Pakistani, Persian, and Indian recipes to aromatherapy oils. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform services including an Ayurvedic facial with complimentary footbath or threading, which allows a technician to accurately pluck facial, hand, and finger hairs from any skin type with imported antibacterial cotton thread. The cultural tradition of henna is brought into sharp focus as artists use the powder to naturally dye the hair, create intricate designs on brides for their wedding day, or teach students tips and tricks for applying the dye to hands, feet, or their invisible friend’s forearm.
The licensed aestheticians at Oregon Cosmetic Laser power most of their cosmetic treatments with elos technology—a one-two punch of laser energy and radio frequency. That combination helps the Syneron laser remove hair and virtually erase skin blemishes or spider veins. It even makes it possible for the VelaShape device to nearly eliminate cellulite, turning it into ethanol. For slightly less space-age palliatives, the med spa trots out ReFirme and triniti skin-tightening treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions, all of which are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Jason Hong.
Plush pedicure chairs and intimate manicure stations line the citrus-hued walls of 10 Nails & Spa's spotless salon. Nail services include basic mani-pedis, during which staffers tidy up hands and feet before adorning tips in colorful coats of popular OPI nail polish. Nail techs can also spruce up the hands for upcoming thumb wars with acrylic services, french designs, and creative nail art. 10 Nails & Spa's resident wax wielders remove unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows down to toe knuckles with quick swipes of a cloth strip, including a thorough Brazilian waxing treatment for ladies.
Licensed aesthetician Betty Vang works at Spades Lash Beauty Bar, located within 77 Salon, to beautify her clients with eyelash extensions. Her steady hand allows her to precisely place individual silk or mink eyelashes along the lash line, and depending on her clients' wishes, the results can be natural or dramatic looking. Betty also can care for the rest of the body, threading or waxing off unwanted hair or perform the Repêchage Four Layer Facial, a technique called "the best facial of the Century" by Cosmopolitan UK magazine.
Gigi's specializes in exotic and ancient hair removal techniques. Threading harnesses the towing power of 100% cotton to evict undesirable facial tendrils, leaving eyebrows shapely or nonexistent. Discerning cotton strands chuck only the unwanted hairs, leaving facial surfaces more composed than after waxing, shaving, or getting kissed by a stranger. Resultant arched brows can retain their winsome shapes for two to four weeks.
