Treatment of the skin smooth
"It's a brave new world of body processing," says Dr. Dendy Engelmen, MD. "With Emtone, you can just enter an office, do nothing, exercise no energy and look better."

There is no downtime and people usually see results immediately, although the highlight is three months later.

Game changers shaking ideas in the industry.
Toe Dove 'n ondersoek instel vir sy nuwe inisiatief, die CROWN (Creating a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair) Coalition – in vennootskap met die National Urban League, Color Of Change en Western Centre for Law & Poverty – was die resultate onthullend: swart vroue word deurlopend beskou as minder gereed vir werkprestasie as hulle hul hare in sy natuurlike toestand dra. Onthullings uit die studie het reeds gehelp om die missie van gelykheid in die werkplek te bevorder, soos die CROWN Act, 'n Kaliforniese en New Yorkse wet wat die beskerming in hierdie state teen diskriminasie in die werkplek op grond van haarstyl verseker.

Toe Shereene Idriss, 'n dermatoloog in New York, die eerste keer op Instagram inteken, het sy 'n eenmalige video in die vooruitsig gestel waarin sy 'n paar vrae in haar direkte boodskappe beantwoord.

Nordstrom het die herfs sy New York City-vlagskip geopen met 'n uitgestrekte skoonheidsafdeling met twee verdiepings wat die Beauty Haven genoem word. Die eerste verdieping het tegniese y-aanraking soos digitale velanalises en 'n geurkiosk wat 'n geurvasvra administreer; die tweede verdieping is 'n behandelingsone met gesigsuitdrukkings vanaf Heyday, uitbarstings van Drybar, manikure van Base Coat, en selfs inspuitbare middels wat deur die Kate Somerville-kliniek geadministreer word, wat Nordstrom die enigste luukse kleinhandelaar maak wat inspuitbare produkte in die winkel kan aanbied.
Aan die einde van 2018 het beroemdheids- en redakteur-geliefde estetikus Renée Rouleau haar lewensmaat van 22 jaar en die bedryfshoof, Florian Oger, aan kanker verloor.
