With more than two decades of experience in the entertainment, fashion, and bridal industries, Gilda specializes in making her clients look and feel beautiful. Whether she is giving a European-style precision haircut, applying camouflage makeup, or administering laser skin-tightening or hair-removal treatments, her focus is always on her clients.
In order to continually improve her craft, Gilda attends international trainings taught by elite beauty educators, and keeps her eyes peeled for cutting-edge beauty trends. Before appointments, Gilda and her staff meet with clients to discuss their aesthetic aspirations and facial features before collaborating on a plan of attack, whether it be a new hair color, makeup application, or texture alteration, such as Japanese straightening or permanent waves. Waxing, threading and laser skin treatments round out the menu of salon services, which clients can enjoy while sipping complimentary mugs of coffee or glasses of wine. For those who cannot make it into the salon, Gilda still makes house calls to beautify brides-to-be and partygoers.
Fine tuning the health and beauty of the human body is the main order of business at Soma Solutions Wellness & Nutrition Centers. The nutrition coaches on staff draft dietary plans and teach clients how to avoid consuming extra calories by never again licking stamps. The certified personal trainers offer one-on-one workouts and all-you-can-sweat group classes.
Medically supervised technicians see to the aesthetic nature of the business, working to rejuvenate the skin with laser treatments and injectable solutions. The GentleMax laser zaps unwanted hair, spider veins, and sunspots on all skin types using high-intensity pulses of light. Noninvasive VelaShape II sessions, which have been featured in Shape, target cellulite and lax skin with robotic massage.
Just because each service at TLC Medispa relies on laser energy, that doesn't mean the center's equipment isn't versatile. That's because the center uses the Palomar StarLux 500 and Cynosure Elite laser systems, a practice which means the staff of certified laser technicians can treat any skin type, and the newer Palomar Vectus for quicker treatments.
During laser hair-removal treatments, techs aim these machines' intense beams of light at hairs to seal off the blood vessels that feed the follicles, thereby permanently preventing regrowth. The technicians also use lasers to clear away wrinkles, scars, acne, pigmentation, and spider veins. Because TLC Medispa's staff includes board-certified doctors, clients can also ascertain whether stethoscopes can detect disloyalty in pets.
Esthetic Laser Clinic's certified laser specialists and licensed master aestheticians bolster clients' outer beauty with laser skin systems, soothing spa treatments, and techniques gleaned over a combined 25 years of skincare experience. Four different laser systems from Candela and Lumenis help tailor treatments to individual bodies, dispersing light beams at custom wavelengths to help tighten skin and banish fuzz from most skin types. In photofacials, the clinic's IPL machine uses quick pulses from a flashbulb to help enhance elasticity and soften wrinkles better than sleeping on a pillow of dryer sheets. More than 10 laser-free facial treatments also elevate façades of all ages with serums that cleanse, hydrate, and oxygenate the skin.
The staff at Laser Plus Lasertrolysis & Skin Care—two registered nurses, seven electrologists, and a team of licensed aestheticians—stays abreast of industry trends through extensive training and continuing education. As the center’s name implies, many of its treatments involve laser-based removal of unwanted hair, veins, and skin imperfections. In addition to those advanced therapies, reflexology applies healing pressure to specific energy zones and mineral make up applications with Jane Iredale and organic Eminence products free up time for other important morning tasks, such as peeling off the sticky residue of one’s nightly cocoon.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and Botox and filler treatments.
