Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.
Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

SkinFit Nation's aestheticians perform a panoply of services, with a lot of different goals in mind. However, each treatment shares the common goal of improving the skin. The staff use sugaring and waxing treatments to get rid of unwanted hair and show off smooth skin. They apply chemical peels and facials to even out pigment or diminish the appearance of wrinkles or acne. At times they tint the skin itself with airbrush tanning services, then dye eyelashes and eyebrows to complement new skin tones. When required, they blast away the top layer of dead skin cells with a microdermabrasion treatment, revealing fresh skin underneath and proving to everyone that you aren't just a robot in a person suit.
By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.
The Boardroom Salon provides men with a comfortable, masculine respite for all their grooming needs. Place your brain container in the trusted hands of an experienced stylist who will expertly execute The Benchmark service using only telepathy. Following a consultation, each client will get a full hair face-lift, including a shampoo and conditioning, scalp massage, haircut, and style. Your expression-maker will reap the benefits of a moisturizing facial, while tired hands are returned to their factory setting with a paraffin hand dip.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
The all-female staff at Depil Brazil Waxing Studio rids bikini zones and other routinely shaved areas of unwanted fuzz during thorough waxing treatments. Licensed aestheticians employ natural products to abolish ingrown follicles and impede speedy hair regrowth. The staffers accelerate services with a no-strip express technique, which is less painful than traditional waxing and quickly removes hair without the use of paper products or a fiery rocket launch. Depil Brazil Waxing also performs its specialty hair-removal services for men, and the disposable materials employed by the team ensure cleanliness throughout its procedures.
