If there’s one thing the veteran waxing technicians at High Brow Waxing Boutique know for sure, it’s that clients hate pain. That's why they use Cirepil professional-brand wax, whose soy and beeswax ingredients are designed to ease hair shafts from follicles with as little irritation as possible. Afterward, they educate clients on aftercare to minimize skin irritation and stave off the attention of envious dolphins.
The 75-minute Age-Smart facial treatment uses Dermalogica ChromaWhite TRx skincare products to revitalize worn out mugs and fight off the biochemical trigger that promotes skin aging. Before the facial, skin savants will conduct a thorough analysis of each client’s epidermis, mapping each visage's vectors zone by zone in order to create a completely unique treatment plan based on the individual’s needs. After the aesthetician performs a personalized facial, skull-wrappers will appear healthier, smoother, firmer, and as youthful as a mid-level CEO on a snow day. Next, a customized contour mask, concocted with ingredients that promote circulation and firmness, will be layered on newly nubile countenances, as the brains beneath the mask surrender to pampering-induced relaxation.

Captained by an Aveda Institute graduate, Esthetics by Liliya's team of beauty techs rejuvenates faces with a variety of peels and facials while keeping entire skinscapes smooth and silky with waxing and tinting services. Patrons can discover a fresh-faced glow with one or two MicroPhototherapy sessions, during which pulsating beams of light and heat soak into uneven skin tones, eradicating blemishes, smoothing wrinkles, opening pores to receive healing creams and lotions, and prying the hands of time from clients’ countenances.
Ever since he entered private practice more than 30 years ago, Dr. Gojko Stula has remained dedicated to preventing—and not merely treating—illnesses with a combination of preventive medicine and traditional procedures. By examining the way maladies stemming from diet and exercise are processed by the body and mind, Dr. Stula pinpoints the root causes of each ailment before administering treatment. His stock of nutritional supplements aims to slow the aging process when combined with a balanced, organic diet, while the LifeSteps-endorsed ChronoNutrition diet assigns specific foods to be consumed at specific periods throughout the day that correspond to the order in which the body naturally breaks them down. Meanwhile, bio-identical hormones correct hormonal imbalances in men and women, while unwanted body hairs are eradicated with laser technology instead of getting too close to the pole during a round of fire limbo.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic’s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
