A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription drug that was developed to treat inadequate eyelash growth; be sure to carefully review the safety information on the Latisse website. If Celibre's experienced medical professionals and beauty wranglers decide after your initial consultation that the Latisse treatment is not suited for you, a full refund will be offered, or you can use the $99 you spent for the Groupon toward another service at the office. Celibre's eyelash consultants can spot a Latisse candidate from across the street—though they conduct a comprehensive exam attentive to your individual needs and eyelash dreams just for the fun of it.
The threading specialists and experienced aestheticians at Rekha's Threading Salon preen and refresh faces with a variety of spa services. During lip and brow threadings, technicians twist a special 100% cotton thread against unwanted facial fuzz, evicting even the most free-spirited and delinquent hairs, including those that are one step away from becoming beauty-school drop outs. And because the process relies on soft thread, clients can anticipate modestly low levels of local swelling and redness.
Aesthetician and Brazilian native Andrea aims to improve the arduous waxing process by implementing a special blend of 100% pure organic honey and hypoallergenic Brazilian honey wax. Client testimonials attest to Andrea’s easygoing nature and her wax’s ability to mitigate the discomfort and irritation associated with traditional waxing while leaving skin soft and smooth following each session. For any given session, Andrea also promotes cleanliness by using individually sanitized glass bowls and encouraging clients to wash their hands before and after mud-wrestling matches.
The Art of You Holistic Center heals bodies with relaxing treatments performed both indoors and out. Classic facials and back treatments evict dirt from the skin, and massages—which range from deep tissue to Swedish—turn tense muscles into butter. The center also offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine and only uses natural products that are free of parabens, sulfates, and poltergeists.
