Helmed by a husband-and-wife team, the staff at Eternally Young Clinic offers several avenues by which clients may attain younger, healthier appearances. Doctors can minimize the appearance of forehead creases and crow’s-feet with Botox injections, and they use other dermal fillers to carry that smoothness down to the cheeks and lips. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels resurface complexions victimized by sun damage and blemishes, revealing the smoother skin hiding just underneath. But beauty does not begin and end at the chin, which is why the clinic offers full-body treatments such as laser hair removal and i-Lipo—a body-contouring treatment that helps clients slim down without undergoing surgery or hula-hooping cross country.
As their name suggests, the technicians at TLC Tecumseh Laser Center are expert at aiming concentrated pulses of light at unwanted body hair to oust it from various locales during laser hair-removal treatments or at unwanted fat to help slim waistline, hips, or thighs during Zerona treatments. But the staff doesn't limit its services to just lasers. They wield the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to help reduce fat and tighten skin via magnetic pulses and radio waves. A variety of facials, peels, and teeth-whitening services are also available.
Melissa Lyons had all but given up hope on finding a way to get rid of her unwanted hair. She tried waxing, shaving, and other aggressive methods but found that her skin would become red and irritated with ingrown hairs and bumps. After trying to avoid bathing suits and tank tops for years, Lyons finally decided to try laser hair removal. Her results were so positive and effective that she opened her own business in 2003, determined to help other people experience the same convenient, smooth, and confidence-boosting outcomes.
Over the past 10 years, the certified laser technicians at Laser It! Salon & Medical Spa have performed more than 25,000 successful laser treatments, including laser hair-removal sessions. The facility has also been expanded and renovated to make space for salon services, spa treatments such as massages and mani-pedis, and clinical services such as the SilkPeel Dermalinfusion skin-resurfacing treatment. Cosmetic-medicine expert Dr. J. C. Maytham strives to make wrinkled skin smoother by administering laser procedures, cosmetic injectables, and medical-grade saxophone solos.
Specializing in hair extensions made with 100-per-cent human hair, the stylists at Adeo Beauty master glue-free techniques that range from easily removable clip-in and clip-on extensions to long-lasting sewn locks. They can also apply micro ring extensions that bond to hair with small coils and protect the natural hair while it grows, much like how a kangaroo hides her children in her pouch until they can box. The stylists cut and colour manes with products from Moroccanoil and Schwarzkopf. In addition to hair on top of the head, the staff also removes facial hair with threading treatments that create clean lines and gentle eyebrow arches without hot wax.
For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading?an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
Lisa Rowe Glickoff's more than 20-year career is just as diverse as the pictures of fantasy, special effects, and beauty makeup in her portfolio. When she is not busy prepping faces for fashion, film, and high-profile events? such as dolling up celebs for the 2006 Academy Awards? the makeup-industry veteran spends time on the product side of the industry. In addition to serving as a beauty rep for brands such as Paula Dorf Cosmetics, she also has created Astute, her own line of makeup. But even with all of these accomplishments, the one that?s closest to her heart remains the founding of Astute Artistry, her makeup-training boutique and beauty studio. From within the 8,000 square foot space?decorated with modern Paris-themed decor?she teaches aspiring make-up artists how to create Hollywood-approved special effects and beauty makeup during hands-on classes that range from beginner level to advanced professional.
When not teaching others the tricks of the beauty trade, Lisa puts her aesthetician license and chic boutique to use by shaping brows with threading, enhancing eyes with lash extensions, and rejuvenating mature, teen, and dehydrated skin during facials. Lisa and her team also provide traditional makeup applications for brides and those attending special events.
Lisa is also committed to helping those in need, which is why she founded Astute Artistry II, a nonprofit makeup studio catering to women affected by skin and hair conditions, which was featured in Hour Detroit magazine.
