Esquire named Hair M the best barber in Portland in 2010, and CitySearch followed suit two years later. The barbershop has also been featured in the New York Times, Men's Health magazine, and the nightmares of unibrows everywhere. The evidence is plain—a man can get a mean haircut at Hair M. But the business offers so much more.
An environment of rugged wood paneling punctuated with HDTVs tuned to sports channels makes the most style-phobic fellow feel welcome, and the bar serving Widmer beers and fine wines doesn't hurt either. Besides regal grooming services, Hair M performs upscale face and body treatments, and keeps a massage therapist on staff at both locations.
Board-certified Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards not only has nearly a decade in aesthetic medicine, but also training from some of Oregon's top plastic surgeons. She draws on this experience at her med spa, R J Edwards Aesthetic Clinic, where she addresses a host of aesthetic concerns with cosmetic treatments. Read on to learn more about a few:
Acne and acne scars: She targets and shrinks oil glands with a laser-light procedure or relies on less invasive chemical peels to resurface skin. Both treatments can minimize breakouts and reduce the appearance of scars.
Uneven skin tone and texture: Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards also employs medical-grade chemical peels and Vi Peels to improve overall skin tone. CoolTouch laser and microneedling treatments can be helpful, too.
Dark undereye circles: Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards improves the appearance of dark circles with such fillers as Juvéderm Voluma XC, Restylane Lyft, and Radiesse.
Crow's-feet: To smooth these smile lines around the eyes, she may inject Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, which can reduce forehead and frown lines, as well.
Toenail fungus: Her laser can penetrate infected toenails and destroy nail fungus with minimal pain and no downtime, helping clients get back to wearing sandals or slippers with the toes cut out as soon as possible.
