The soothing feel of hot towels and the bracing aroma of aftershave. An expert, customized haircut that will make you
eShave founder Danielle Malka first made inroads into the shaving business when she created a successful program to educate barbers in the UK. As the barbers' trade tips trickled down to consumers, her renown grew, and in 1996, she founded eShave to enhance the shaving experience through elegant razors, kits, and shaving creams devoid of the porcupine quills often found in competitors' products. Danielle still designs eShave's hand-sculpted, aesthetically unique razors, badger brushes, and shave stands, many of which have been featured in dozens of local and national health and lifestyle magazines.
At eShave's retail outlets, trained trimmers specialize in transforming masculine mugs from bushy to groomed with their signature barber services. Using the company's own products, its signature shaves begin with a relaxing hot-towel preparation and facial oil massage to open up the pores, followed by a hot lather to moisten and prepare skin for a close, comfortable shave or clever escape from pursuers. After coolly slicing bristles with a straight razor, a barber neatly wipes away all remaining evidence of his work and provides an aftershave moisturizer to prevent irritation and soothe nude jaws.
With its comfy leather couch, friendly modern art, and plush Persian rug, Dr. Marianna Farber's waiting room is as welcoming as a friend's den. High-tech tools add a touch of business to this homey space, where Dr. Farber's been treating patients for more than 15 years. Besides the usual preventive care, she performs cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, Invisalign, and gum reshaping, as well as restorative work that includes dental implants, full mouth rehabilitation, and porcelain crowns and bridges.
Completing medical school in only three years allowed Dr. Nicholas Perricone to get to work building a name for himself in the dermatological world as the father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging. After an internship in pediatrics at Yale Medical School, a dermatology residency at Ford Medical Center, and years of research, Perricone discovered wrinkles might be the result of cellular inflammation.
Since formulating this theory, Perricone has authored three New York Times No. 1 bestsellers and has shared his anti-aging expertise with audiences on numerous television programs including Oprah, Access Hollywood, and Good Morning America. He has also formulated an award-winning skincare line that includes corrective treatments, cleansers, moisturizers, water imported from the Fountain of Youth, and a collection of no-makeup makeup.
