March 11, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • Page 11 F O CUS on A Special Supplement to the March 11, 2009 Edition of The Villadom TIMES RIDGEWOOD Businesses & Professionals I Personalized, expert skin care Parkview Pediatric Dentistry, LLC hile living in Russia, aesthetician Luba Lander began working in the skin care industry with Mary Kay. When she came to the U.S., she acquired her degree as a certified, licensed aesthetician at Capri Institute in Paramus. After doing freelance work as a skin specialist for major department stores, she felt there was neither enough emphasis on personal contact nor freedom to sell the products in which she believed. The more Luba became educated about products and their ingredients, the more she wanted the freedom to suggest the best products for each individual. Luba currently works with clients at Cosmetic Vein Center, offering relaxing and regenerative facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. “Skin of any age or Luba Lander condition can greatly benefit from these treatments. Microdermabrasion can help teens control acne conditions. It can also help to control many other conditions of the skin including the aging process.” Luba says. “I have state-of-the-art equipment and use all-natural ingredients. For instance, I only use sodium bicarbonate with my microdermabrasion equipment whereas other spas use aluminum oxide crystals that can be extremely irritating to the skin. Other services I provide are body waxing (including Brazilian bikini), and eyelash and eyebrow tinting and design. “I believe in the maintenance of skin throughout one’s life. We carry many high quality products for the skin, but I am especially proud to offer advanced Cosmoceutical products. These contain medical grade ingredients and are carefully prescribed.” Cosmetic Vein Center’s board-certified physicians expertly treat disorders of the veins, including varicose and spider veins with state-of-the art laser techniques. Botox, Juvederm, laser hair removal, and massage therapy are also available. Located in Ridgewood, Cosmetic Vein Center is open Tuesday through Saturday by appointment only.
