Scalp disorders and thinning or balding hair wreak havoc on a full head of hair, causing low self-esteem and diminished self-confidence. From private studios, that's where Dexter and Juliette can help encourage clients to feel good about themselves by enhancing hair so it's fuller, longer, and healthier. These certified hair extension technicians draw on more than 25 years of experience as they weave natural human strands into tresses to add volume and length. They can also craft flattering custom lace front and topper pieces that look so natural no one will even know it's not naturally-growing hair, boosting self-esteem and enhancing your appearance for both everyday enhancements as well as weddings and other special occasions.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
The styles that emerge from Blu Moon Salon are the result of two things: a talented staff and carefully selected products. To achieve the desired looks, stylists pull from brands such as men's line American Crew, Moroccan Oil, and Bangstyle, an artisan line of shampoos, conditioners, and other haircare products. The staff snips and colors hair in an open salon space distinguished by hardwood floors and walls covered in art.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
