Peek-a-Boo's professional phalange buffers cosset fingers and toes with a variety of soothing treatments. The salon's signature mani-pedi shape shifts all 20 shields with a detailed file and buff, preparing hands and feet for stylish dragon slaying. Then technicians frost finger cakes with a precision polish. A massage rewards hands and feet for their diligent and dexterous work during full-body cat's-cradle competitions, punctuating each service with a circulation-improving sendoff.
Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
Dermacare owner Jeff Birchall, MD and his staff of friendly nurses and medical aestheticians wield a color-blind Cutera laser to permanently remove hair from most skin types. As the pulse of light zaps each unwanted strand at the root, a CoolGlide hand piece soothes skin with lowered temperatures and whispered recaps of professional golf tournaments. Some patients report a mild pinching or stinging sensation, though no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, and after the treatment, skin may be slightly red and swollen. Most areas require at least five treatments to fully banish hair, depending on its thickness, stage in the growth cycle, and favorite Addams Family character.
Though Era Skin Lounge's aestheticians are obsessed with skincare, they realize that a facial is probably not the most important thing their client has to do that day. This is why they use high-performance products in timesaving treatments designed to strike a balance between effectiveness and relaxation. Era's staff hunts down pore-clogging culprits with facials, chemical peels, and leads from an anonymous tip line, and they battle signs of age with retinol and medical-grade organic enzymes.
