Hair Free Forever owner Cheryl Conway has come a long way since her early years studying and practicing at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Her interest in electrology took her across the country to Beverly Hills, where she specialized in eyebrow design. Her expertise allowed her to analyze and execute proper corrections to achieve the perfect shape for each individual patient–a skill she continues to use in her role as an expert consultant for the California State Board of Cosmetology. This passion led her to pioneer California's first apprenticeship program for Thermolysis, or permanent hair removal. Today, she continues to educate students in the highly specialized procedure.
As a member of the American Electrology Association, Cheryl continues to free patients from the cycles of shaving or waxing with FDA-approved thermolysis treatments that are safe and effective for all types of skin and hair. High-frequency currents heat the follicles of actively growing hairs, causing them to permanently stop growing, and maintenance sessions ensure that all follicles are treated. Clients can choose to target any part of the face or body, or opt for eyebrow-shaping thermolysis treatments—one of Conway's longest-standing specialties.
Med spas and day spas may appear similar, but in reality, they're about as different as a baby and the American president he's dressed as. In order to earn the name med spa, a business must employ physicians, who oversee the various beauty treatments, as well as a medically trained staff. That's because the services offered by med spas tend to be more invasive than those offered at day spas.
At Tre Jolie MediSpa, a board-certified surgeon leads a team that includes skincare specialists and a registered nurse with more than 35 years of experience. These experts seek to improve appearances with services that range from Botox and Juvederm injections to laser hair removal and laser vein therapy.
Tre Jolie MediSpa also fine tunes bodies with less invasive services, such as facials that use PCA Skin products, body waxing, and Latisse eyelash-enhancement serum.
Plush white furniture pops against the spa's taupe interior where technicians and aestheticians customize treatments to individuals. They use state-of-the-art technology during a range of cosmetic treatments. Lasers resurface tired complexions, as well as dissolve acne, hair and conspicuous leg veins.
