GLAMOUR BEAUTY CLINICby: Kiat-Sing Teo
A quiet spot in Flushing is no longer a myth once you know where to find it. Shielded from the madding crowd, and discreetly tucked in the shopping gallery of the stately Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel, the haven that shatters the myth is Glamour Beauty Clinic. Its simple glass façade is an intentional buffer, while the glass door opens to a high domed celling designed to invoke a satisfied sense of completion. A Zen-like serenity pervades the atmosphere, attesting to the Clinic’s central concerns: its clients’ privacy and ease of mind as they enjoy the many state-of-the-art beauty services provided.
Besides a well-trained and experienced team of aestheticians, the Clinic’s expertise is a carefully curated collection of the best and latest products and technology from the US, Europe and parts of Asia. Like the newest beauty buzz in 6D eyebrow embroidery – developed in Korea, bringing the semi-permanent allure of natural-looking, full and flawless eyebrows. Using mineral pigments to penetrate only the epidermis of skin underneath the brows, this procedure can help to control allergic reactions. Strokes are applied close to each other for a realistic effect, and the results will endure some 3 to 5 years, requiring only minimum touch-ups and maintenance visits.
There’s also the Radio Frequency (RF) Facelift – a cutting-edge facial therapy, which harnesses radio frequency at specific temperatures to stimulate the dermal layer of skin for a tightening effect, blood circulation and collagen production. Suitable for women over 40 years old, this technology is a convenient and low cost alternative to surgery. Treatment time is only between 20 minutes to an hour, but still a significant difference is yielded in noticeably reduced frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles; thus skin elasticity is restored and aging process is delayed. In some clients, the outcome is immediate, while others begin to see wrinkles gradually fade 2 to 6 months after treatment.
The Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) treatment – a multi-purpose cosmetic laser, with US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, and currently the most effective skin rejuvenation technique. OPT works by applying pulses to address skin issues such as dark spots, facial redness or acne, uneven coloration, wrinkles and enlarged pores, thick collagen layer on skin, rough skin, acne scars and other problems. OPT is non-invasive – leaves no skin trauma, is painless and convenient. No follow-up care is necessary, it is without side effects and quick – the procedure is only 20 to 30 minutes, and leaves lasting results. Further, OPT has the triple advantages of safety – due to advanced technology, effectiveness – optimal skin improvements, and reproducibility – with an ability to repeat because individual pulses can be controlled.
Everlyn Ho, the inspiration behind the soft elegance of Glamour Beauty Clinic, is also the owner of La Peau Day Spa in SOHO, president of Miss NY Chinese Beauty Pageant and even has her own line of make up products – Makeup Rite, which will be introduced at the Clinic in the very near future, together with a beauty and makeup school which Ho will personally oversee, so that more can be touched by beauty.
