Advanced Aesthetics' resident beauty medic, Barbie Winterbottom, tames troublesome skin with the healing power of multicolored, light-emitting diodes. Multi-generational clients choose from three LED-light treatments that enhance the structure of skin without heat or harmful UV rays. Adults and teens silence surly acne with a blue-light treatment that penetrates pores, exterminating bacteria and clearing up skin's clouded judgments. Versatile red-light therapy enhances epidermal elasticity and minimizes wrinkles by increasing cellular turnover to the level of apple-bearing pastry chefs. As part of all 60- to 90-minute treatments, Barbie deep cleans faces with Clarisonic technology before scoffing surfaces and gently peeling tired layers for a freshly molted look. In addition to casting customized face spells, Barbie sends clients home with care regimens that improve epidermal outcomes without the need to wear wizard costumes.
Housed in a restored Florida bungalow, Advanced Aesthetics boasts a gender-neutral interior accented by oak floors, crown molding, and black-and-white portraits adorning the walls. Clients over 21 may partake in complimentary glasses of wine during their visits, and intrepid troops of teens can sip sparkling water and bob to the upbeat groove of top 40, XM radio, or fireside chats with Casey Kasem.
Origin Stories: Clear Skin in Time for High School
Medical aesthetician Barbie Winterbottom scaled the human-resources hierarchy of the Home Shopping Network in a previous life. When the corporate retail world lost its diamond luster in 2004, Barbie migrated to the emerging med-spa industry, where she once banished breakouts from a 30-something high school English teacher who suffered from acne all her life. The teacher said that it was the first day of her adult life that she’d entered a school with a clear face. Barbie often exerts her classically trained pipes to sing the score of Phantom of the Opera while bounding across the beaches with her effervescent Chihuahua mix, Sophie.
