In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
Dr. Daniel McGrath leads a trained medical staff who combat skin damage and signs of aging with noninvasive laser skin resurfacing, Botox, and laser hair-removal treatments. Dr. McGrath exploits the beauty industry's technological developments to the utmost, wielding Fraxel lasers that create thousands of tiny holes in the skin to stimulate the body's natural healing process to create a brand-new surface, and laser hair removal that can vanquish unwanted hair from any part of the body. LipoLaser treatments aim to shrink circumferences with cold lasers that circumvent skin tissue entirely, leaving it undamaged as the energy bereaves fat cells of their triglycerides and stores of water balloons. The staff welcome clients for a free skin evaluation, during which a clinician listens to concerns and helps devise an effective treatment plan.
Karen Million strives to detoxify bodies and help clients feel good through holistic, natural treatments such as colonic hydrotherapy, for which she holds certification from the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. During a session, Million sends warm, filtered water through her client’s large intestine, helping to loosen and remove toxins that can cause bloating, constipation, lethargy, skin problems, and numerous other common ailments. Also a nationally certified massage therapist, she preforms pin-and-stretch therapy, or soft-tissue therapy, which “pins” muscles before stretching them back to their original length. The process restores circulation to musculature and promotes natural healing.
Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick H. Beckham taps his 40 years of experience to lead a skilled staff of technicians in performing Luxe Body Spa's full menu of medical spa treatments and technology-assisted therapies. The staff acquaints patrons with the nuances of its menu of cosmetic procedures during free consultations, elucidating the skin-sloughing power of manually exfoliating microdermabrasion sessions and breaking down the spider-vein-, unwanted-hair-, and fine-line-conquering power of laser therapy. Visitors can explore the benefits of laser body contouring with the Lapex 2000 Lipo Laser to remove stubborn fat deposits unmoved by boot-camp classes, dieting, or promises of a peaceful life on a farm upstate.
