Licensed aesthetician L. Marie Gazzana takes great pride in offering her clients cutting-edge beauty treatments. But it was her personal quest for self-improvement that led her to adopt one of her spa's most popular treatments: the infrared body wrap. After giving birth to twin boys, the busy working mother searched near and far for a treatment that could help her ditch the baby weight without compromising what little free time she had. She decided to give infrared body wraps a try, and after losing 51 pounds and gaining loads of new energy, she decided to share the service with her clients.
At L Marie's Bare Elegance, newly svelte physiques can also find further enhancement with a menu of facials, eyelash extensions, and full-body waxing services, which includes several options tailored exclusively to men. Putting her customers' needs first, L Marie provides access to a full service spa, with two showers and a sauna, where clients may take showers or play with spa toys before their scheduled service, and offers after-hours appointments by request.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.

"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Skin & Wellness Clinic’s team of aestheticians devises medically based treatments to boost the health and aesthetic appeal of the body’s first line of defense: the skin. These medical facials and body treatments combat aging with skin-firming injectables, exfoliating dermal peels, and laser wrinkle reduction. When they aren’t pointing their lasers at patches of furrowed skin, the aestheticians harness the high-energy beams to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and age spots. Before every laser treatment or organic facial, a computerized skin analysis spots damage invisible to the naked eye and suggests which stocks to buy or sell based on your unique constellations of freckles.
