After earning her business degree, Shanna Sautman enrolled in The Academy of Glam. There, she studied under expert makeup artists, practicing the cosmetic techniques that would become the basis of Haute Looks Studio. While she mastered the complexities of contouring and practiced with both airbrushes and traditional makeup, Shanna began to develop her signature style. Today, she employs that style as a licensed aesthetician.
Shanna's services glamorize every kind of complexion with personalized packages. Her Haute Look makeover, for example, encompasses a full-face application of products from foundation to mascara. The Camera Ready package creates flattering looks for video and print by emphasizing coverage and complementary colors, instead of painting your face to fade into the jungle print backdrop of the photo shoot. She can also fashion new hairdos with a curling wand or flat iron to prepare clients for any kind of event from a formal wedding to a casual girls night out.
The trained technicians at Ana Camargo Skin & Day Spa enhance arm aesthetics with skin-tightening treatments. Wielding TriPollar equipment, which delivers radio-frequency energy deep into the hypodermis, the aestheticians target superficial and deep fat layers to shrink cellulite and increase collagen regeneration for arms that look younger and tighter while waving or opening pickle jars. The TriPollar units heat up the body’s accumulated fat deposits, accelerating metabolism and forcing the cells to release fatty acids for disposal by the circulatory and lymphatic systems. The unit's three electrodes, which limit the fat-blasting force to the treatment area alone, allow for a noninvasive and nearly painless treatment, unlike earlier slimming treatments, which caused the current supermodel-overpopulation crisis. Although results may differ, many may see tighter arms in as little as one treatment.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
I supplement my main services with LED light therapy and 24K nano-gold collagen gel masks.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
I customize my treatments according to my clients' needs. I like to do combination treatments. The reason my clients love them so much is that they see results immediately. All my treatments are very result-oriented.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Having my own proprietary blends, I'm consistently striving to create better products by using the best and, in some cases, very exclusive ingredients, such as the Swiss apple stem-cell extract. I'm also very proud of the edelweiss stem cell with advanced technologies, such as nanotechnology.
Carla Cardoso had one question in mind when she opened Massage Rio Spa: “what can I do to help people?” A massage therapist, aesthetician, and practical nurse by trade, Carla realized that she had many ways to help others relax and feel beautiful.
She draws on her diverse skill set at Massage Rio Spa, alleviating stress with barefoot shiatsu massages in the morning and soothing skin with deep-cleansing facials by the afternoon. Carla is joined by a team of similarly skilled technicians who specialize in massages, facials, waxing, and airbrush tanning. Clients can even get an application of permanent makeup, which saves the hassle of getting ready in your neighbor's bathroom every morning.

In addition, permanent makeup keeps morning routines simple and stops pillowcases from badmouthing errant mascara.
Victoria Ruben believes beauty shouldn’t be temporary. After founding her permanent-makeup business 20 years ago in Paris, she decided to further her aesthetic mission by opening a cosmetology and beauty school to share her refined technique with others. Today, Victoria combines her expertise with the latest tattooing equipment to fine-tune faces in her Florida studio. Her precise yet painterly touches of color can simulate all the hallmarks of a professional makeup application, from defining brows to subtly shading lips to drawing distinguished monocles.
