Named one of the best in skincare and cosmetics by readers of The Leader, Melanin Aesthetics and Laser Clinic tends to skin needs with individualized treatments that remove hair, treat acne, and obscure signs of aging. Skincare specialists Gloria Vergara and Manuel Octaviano rely on Syneron’s elōs light-based technologies to zap unwanted hair and acne. Their borderline obsession with high-tech aesthetics extends to the ReFirme procedure, which deploys infrared light and bipolar radio frequencies to tighten skin more effectively than sleeping in a mask of rubber bands. The clinic also uses medical-grade products from Vitelle's Dermatology MedScience line to address specific skin concerns.
Along with his wife, certified aesthetician Wendy Killick, Eve Aesthetics Skincare and Laser Centre's Dr. Geoffrey W. Killick addresses each patient's individual aesthetic and cosmetic needs with services that include injections and laser technology. A longstanding practitioner of Botox for its therapeutic uses, Dr. Killick administers doses that soften wrinkles, reduce migraines, and diminish excessive sweating. While the Killicks’ lasers incinerate unwanted hair and treat rosacea, their pulsed and infrared lights work to lessen the appearance of sun damage, remove spider veins, and tighten skin. The aestheticians can also correct fine lines with several peels and add volume to lips with injections from half and quarter syringes.
Behind the reception area’s glossy white desk, sleek black styling stations buzz with the whirring of dryers and snipping of scissors. So begins a typical visit to Gossip & Co. Tanning and Hair Studio, wherein a team of stylists and aestheticians prove their dedication to gussying up patrons with services ranging from long-lasting Shellac manicures to meticulous waxing treatments. Within the studio’s slate gray walls, the styling team assembles strands into sleek updos, revives lacklustre locks with conditioning treatments, and installs voluminous hair extensions. A fleet of tanning beds housed within private rooms gilds bodies in bronze shades of varying intensity and grant the appearance of having just returned from vacation without the hassles of bribing clouds to scram.
It looks a bit like a distant cousin of the R2-D2 droid from Star Wars: it's a modular, upright unit on four wheels with a display screen that could double for a face. But the new Alma Lasers Harmony XL is the primary tool the technicians at Avante Laser & Aesthetics use for laser hair removal.
Avante Laser & Aesthetics offers
IPL photorejuvenation facial treatments, a non-surgical procedure that uses pulsed light to leave complexions looking clearer, smoother, and more youthful. As well as the ClearLift, a non-surgical, non-invasive approach to restoring a youthful look to any aged portion of your body.
Bottles of PCA Skin and Dermalogica products are aplenty inside Aura Skin Care & Laser Services, where skilled estheticians provide clinical facials, as well as restore vibrancy in skin during microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels. For those looking for an all-over change, Aura Skin Care also offers body-shaping services, such as non-invasive body cavitation treatments that eliminate fat in the body where even workouts can't reach.
Elegance Medi Spa's cosmetic procedures entwine Eastern modalities with noninvasive Western technology. Using this mix, the staff of certified technicians can help patients vanquish flab with an FDA-approved LipoLaser, banish unwanted hair with laser hair-removal services using the LightSheer XC diode laser, and fade discolouration with teeth whitening. No matter what aesthetic treatment patients choose, they first undergo a comprehensive consultation to discuss their concerns, goals, and favourite celebrity baby names.
