Owner and skin therapist. With 17 years of experience, Azalea Yow Edwards specializes in all things skin at Emerge!
Azalea's creative abilities and an obsession for makeup led her to a career in esthetics. She quickly gained a following in Brazilian bikini waxing and has mentored many local waxing experts. Her passion for education and excitement for travel has allowed her the knowledge to excel in all areas of skin care. Azalea has travelled as far as Istanbul, Turkey for educational opportunities and enjoys supporting local educators and attending local esthetic shows in between traveling to the larger, well know shows across the country.
Azalea enjoys sharing her knowledge with clients and helping them connect to a better understanding of their own personal skin care needs. She doesn't like to waste time with flashy trends, only focusing on treatments, tools and products that she researches and experiences for herself that deliver results. But at the heart of what she does is making people feel as good as they look when they leave Emerge.
Throughout her career Azalea has been told she has a magic touch and healing hands and she was recently guided to use her healing touch, intuition and compassion towards helping clients even more with Reiki energy work. Azalea has always considered herself an energetically sensitive person and was very excited to expand her purpose of helping others in that way. She considers the work she does as a Reiki Master practitioner, some of the most rewarding work she's ever done. Her approach with clients is similar to skin care in how she helps clients connect with their own personal energetic needs.
Alex LaMuraglia specaializes in Male and Female Brazilian Bikini waxing, Aging and Acne skin treatments and home care advice.
Alex is a native of Caracas Venezuela who has called Greensboro her home for over 30 years. She graduated from UNCG and has had a career including teaching, real estate sales and advertising.
Alex explains that as a spa client herself, she 'woke up to her own desire to to help others while working in a zen environment." She returned to school 6 years ago to pursue esthetics and has been at Emerge ever since, expanding and sharing her skin care knowledge and achieving wonderful clinical results with her facial clients. She is our in-house "waxing diva" caring for both men and women with friendliness and great attention to detail. Her prior experience as a client gives Alex a keen intuition into both what the client wants and needs.
Alex feels that she has really found her niche, "working in a peaceful world where I am continuously improving my knowledge and getting to help others achieve their optimum skin health which is the essence of beautiful skin."
In addition to her regular yearly continuing education in skin care, Alex is looking forward to expanding her certification and practice in Reiki.
Reiki at Emerge is a beautiful self-care service where the client can connect deeper with themselves and their own energetic needs in a relaxing environment.
It is administered by accessing universal chi (energy) that is present in all things. The energy will go where it is most needed, whether the need is physical or emotional.
Each client and practitioner will feel reiki in their own unique way but it is often described as a relaxing wave of heat.
Reiki has many healing qualities and can help to bring balance to low vibrations of stress, anxiety, grief, depression and illness. It works by cleansing and clearing those low vibratory or "stuck" energies so that higher vibratory energy flows more freely through your body, stimulating your bodies own self regulating abilities.
Azalea is currently practicing at Reiki Master level as well as Usui/Holy Fire II Alex is currently practicing at Reiki level 1 and continuing her certification.

Skin Sheek uses high frequency (Radio Frequency) to treat minor skin irregularities, usually in one dramatic treatment.
A small probe is used to barely touch the skin, which vaporizes the growth or vein. The affected area dries, creating a crust or scab that heals and flakes off in 3-12 days. The new skin is left pink which will lighten over time with proper home care and professional treatments to even out surrounding skin tone. Skin Sheek can address the following: sun/age spots, skin tags, cherry angiomas, sebaceous hyperplasia, milia, broken capillaries)

Taking a pain reliever such as Ibuprofen 20 to 45 minutes beforehand may help dull your pain receptors (as long as it’s not contraindicated by your doctor).
The day of your waxing, limit your caffeine intake as it can stimulate the nervous system which can make you more sensitive and red.
For females, try scheduling your appointment within the first 2 weeks after you have ended your cycle. This is when you are retaining the least amount of fluid, making your skin less sensitive. We will still wax our clients if they are on their cycle as long as they wear a clean tampon and understand they could be more sensitive.
Your hair must be at least ¼ inch, generally 2-3 weeks worth of growth from the point of shaving. The longer the growth (within reason) will mean less tweezing and a cleaner wax.
Do not apply self-tanner, moisturizer, or any abrasive body or facial scrubs before or directly after your wax. Also avoid getting spray tanned before any waxing procedure. Wax tends to lift the color off your skin. Do not sit in the sun or go to the tanning booth prior to your service or directly after.
Discontinue any product that exfoliates or dries the skin for at least 1 week to prevent tears, scabbing or burning.
Some products that conflict with waxing are: Accutane, Differin, Retin A/Retinol, Glycolic acid/AHA’s, ProActive, Avita, Benzoyl peroxide, Salicylic acid/ BHA’s
Facial Waxing: Try not to touch the waxed area for 24 hours. Bacteria on your fingers will get into your delicate open pores and cause pimples. If you do touch your waxed skin, just rinse it off with cold water or apply toner if you have some. Witch Hazel is an all-natural toner/astringent that gently reduces inflammation while keeping pores clean and bacteria free.
Body Waxing: Start exfoliating as soon as it is comfortable to do so or when tenderness subsides. This will prevent ingrown hairs and ensure that your next wax will be smoother. You may exfoliate your skin one of two ways: chemically or manually.
Chemically: We recommend PFB Vanish and PFB Chromabright for darker pigmented skin. We sell both of these products at Emerge. They contain a gentle blend of salicylic and glycolic acids that help to clear the hair follicle to treat and prevent bumps.
Manually: We recommend “The Ultimate Buffing Cloth” from Dermalogica. We sell this product at Emerge. (Loofahs can harbor bacteria or mold, and are not sufficient exfoliators.) As a regular preventative measure, scrub in a gentle upward and circular motion. This will reduce the chance of ingrown hairs, bumps, pimples and rough skin.
If you have been waxed for the first time, a few bumps and/or pimples are common. If you break out everywhere there can be a few reasons for this, the most common being that your hair follicles are irritated by sweat and/or bacteria. Sweat, which contains urea and salt, is considered irritating to your hair follicles so they will be extra sensitive the first time around. Your next waxes should be less irritating provided you stay on a regular schedule.
If bumps or pimples have appeared, antibiotic ointment, tea tree oil, and/or PFB Vanish are topical agents that can help clear up your skin in a few days.
Should I tweeze or shave in between waxes? If your waxing appointments do not coordinate with your monthly schedule, tweezing is a quick fix. We strongly advise our clients not to shave in between visits because shaving disrupts the hair growth and will make your next wax more uncomfortable
