Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa’s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
