Most of my life I have struggled with facial hair. I considered it a flaw that I would just have to deal with my whole life. As a African American women hair period has been a dilemma. The hair on top of my head wouldn't grow fast enough and the hair on my face couldn't stop growing fast enough. I had become the bearded lady. I tried everything from tweezing to waxing, using face creams, shaving, to later, heavy makeup to hide it and finally at age of 27 after being tormented and embarrassed by a family member pointing out my facial hair enough was enough. I went home got on computer searched for hours and days doing research for what actually could permanently remove facial hair for good. I even prayed to God for direction. As overwhelming as it was to find the best method and the best person for the job. I had enough of of letting embarrassing facial hair take over my life making me feel uncomfortable in front of people by seeing if they could see it or what they thought. So I was determined to get it right. This was the deal breaker. Finally after heavy research I found Michaels electrolysis center Ahoova Mishael was ready to see me within the same day and could do consultation and treatment same day as apt.my first session was 45 min and I saw results instantly after my 2 treatment it took 3 weeks for me to see hair grow back and the one that did was nothing like the coarse ones before. Each treatment gets better I am on my 6th and I went from a beard to a few strands that takes weeks to come back and the hair that do are barely noticeable and lighter. I use to touch my face and there would be scruffles and rough from the hair now I am no longer afraid for my husband to touch my face it's smooth as a babies bottom. It has been a few months now and 90% of the hair has not grown back. I am beyond excited and most of blessed and grateful for the hair to be gone. At last I am not scared for people to stare in my face for long periods of time and no more hiding my neck when the sun is out.
I have a co-worker that has been getting massages here for the past 6 months, she's always raving about how great they are, she goes every week &…
Everyone there has been beyond nice to me and very accommodating including Alethea. Keep in mind that I always go out of my way to project positive energy in hopes of receiving it back and that may well be my secret. :) First, I have very pale non tanning skin with dark coarse hair. I also feel almost no pain. I have been there 3 times for laser hair removal and after just one treatment I noticed at least 25% of the hair was gone. Since then I have been a total of 3 times. It has been at least 3 months that I haven't even shaved. Looking right now I can actually count how many hairs are left and they are hard to see and maybe a quarter of an inch long. I am leaving them so we can see what still needs to be done. I wish I could have my whole body done!!! I have been to another place when laser hair removal was still new around 5 years ago and I had 6 treatments and 100% of that hair has grown back. it was extremely painful and It also cost me around $700!! Since my 3 laser treatments at Bella so far I even went in for a microderm facial. Two weeks before I had a microderm performed at another salon and my face wasn't even red! I couldn't even tell! At Bella, my face was really red and all my skin just fell off for the next few days. It was amazing!! I just put avocado oil on my face right after my morning shower then before I went to bed. I can't believe how fantastic my skin looks and i heard that you need to have like 3-6 done to see any results?!?! I love my results right now. I even had a groupon and I don't feel like I was treated any less.
My partner and I got a Scout Mob deal on massage services at Urban Body Studios, and I scheduled an appointment with Tai, who was one of the massage therapists participating. I figured, since I got him by default, that I shouldn't have any unreal expectations for a great massage. Man, I could not have been more wrong!!Tai is that rare massage therapist who actually listens to what you tell him, has the skills to put his hands to work, and produces GREAT results. After only three massages, I'm hooked...I work out a lot. I do weight training, and use the machines at my gym to row, bike, and sweat it out on the eliptical. I'm in my 40's, and definitely need help staying balanced with the hard work I put in. I have been to massage therapists many times before, and have finally found someone who can keep me tuned up.Tai has intuitive, powerful hands, and gets right into those difficult areas with just the right amount of pressure, just pushing right up to the point of pain without ever crossing over the line. I stay in a meditative-like state the whole time he's working on me, and don't even have to give him feedback--he's that GOOD. I am so happy to have stumble upon this wonderful, amazing therapist. I cannot recommend his services enough. Just WOW!!
If you are looking for a little pampering for yourself or with your girlfriends with a sincere and professional staff, then definitely check this place out. Located in the rear of a two story building you will find this quaint and chic med spa. They offer the most up to date natural beautifying products and procedures including laser hair removal, peels, teeth whitening, botox, vein treatments, microneedling, and more. Kai, was such a joy to work with, she walked me through step by step of what she was doing before, during, and after my teeth whitening experience. Kalen, the founder and owner pleasantly explained different facial treatments. I chose the Hydra Facial, which only took about 30 mins and left my looking clean, radiant, decreased my wrinkles, and evened out my complexion. I can't wait to go back and pamper myself with some other specialized treatments.
Mishael is great. I've always had a problem with facial hair and as a dark-skinned black woman, I've tried everything--laser, depilatories, etc. I've done electrolysis with 2-3 different providers in the Atlanta area to no avail. I'm so grateful to Mishael for being honest and upfront and my results are amazing. I had in-growns, razor bumps, hyper-pigmentation--a true worst case scenario and I'm happy to say 80% of my hair is gone and my skin is quickly repairing itself from all the past damage and hair growth. Mishael is quiet but once you get to know her she warms up--talks just enough and not too much. She is professional, keeps appointments to the minute and her steady clientele is a testimony of her good work. I'm almost done and I am grateful to have my face back...please don't waste money with these others. Mishael knows her stuff!
As someone who was at the beginning of a gender transition at the time I began my treatments at Mishael's Electrolysis I was very touched by Ahoova's supportive, understanding nature, and grateful for her incredible skill and expertise. I had a challenging combination of dense, coarse facial hair and very sensitive skin. Ahoova worked with great care, and around one year after I began facial electrolysis I was done (much faster than I expected). Since that time I've had almost no regrowth. My face is now smooth, soft, and feminine. I could not be happier with my results which have truly been life changing!In fact, I was so pleased with my experiences and results the first time around that I'm now back having some other areas worked on by Carol. Once again, my experience at Mishael's Electrolysis is proving to be stellar!
This place is wretched!I ONLY gave this salon five stars because of the nail salon here.I wouldn't let them touch my head with a 10 ft pole! Or do my makeup!Lol! Everyone that gets up from the makeup chair look like Bozo the clown! I swear they do!They are ghetto and unprofessional,the sign says don't bring your kids but they bring unruly undisciplined children here every time I get my nails done. You go to the spa for peace and relaxation not for this hot mess of a business! I would hate to see this place close ONLY because of YEN,the girl who does my nails! I drive 30 min cause she is the best nail technician I've ever found! I wldnt let any other nail tech here touch my nails either. As for all the others? They need to fire everybody but YEN! She's the best!
Bodywork unlike anything you will ever experience anywhere else. If you have a structural problem or ailment/diagnosis you will work the problem out here. If you have a: pinched nerve, atrophied muscle, lack of range motion, tons of muscle tension, or a stubborn trigger point (knot) in the muscle, it will be alleviated at Medical Massage at Midtown, Inc. in a relaxed setting.It's worth a try with an:introductory price of $45 for a 60 min. Orthopedic Massage or $60 for a 90 min. Orthopedic Massage.You can't beat that price anywhere. Physiotherapy like this is normally retailed at $150 for 90 minutes in medical spas and physical therapy offices across the U.S.A.. If you can find it offered at those locations.
I have been coming to Buckhead Nail and Toe Spa for over 11 yrs. I like this nail spa because they are friendly and very attentive in their profession. I noticed how they clean everything once they finish with each ever customer. I know they clean up the whole spa at closing because I have been there several times at closing. The atmosphere of the spa is alway fresh and relaxing. Everything seem like brand new every time I visit. I haven't noticed dust or dirt on anything in the spa. Normally I don't leave reviews but I think it is time I praise this Buckhead Nail and Toe Spa for its cleanliness and excellent service....M. Sharpe
I recently visited Blue Divine and I had a phenomenal time! The ambiance is relaxing and the decor is chic and comfortable. I went in for a 15 min teeth whitening session and I was quite pleased. I was able to see an immediate difference. The technician explained the process and made sure that I was comfortable. The staff is quite knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my skincare questions. I will be returning soon for another teeth whitening session and I hope to also get the hydrafacial. The ladies that received the service while I was there had beautifully glowing skin. I cant wait to return for that!
