Before inviting clients into her chair, Salon Alchemy’s owner and creative director, Rita, studied at the elbow of a L’Oréal educator in Manhattan, learning complex coloring techniques such as French highlights and prismatic formulation. Today, she applies this knowledge when infusing ’dos with balayage and ombre highlights, and erasing wild house-painting accidents with color correction. She also channels her creative energy through her scissors, which seek out optimal styles in accordance with her client’s hair type and facial shape.
Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc––a distinguished, board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon––applies years of façade-refurbishing experience to nurture weathered complexions back to health through rejuvenating facial treatments. The hydrafacial, also known as the "celebrity facial," is a deeply exfoliating, crystal-free microdermabrasion that removes stubborn skin cells loitering past their expiration dates. The 30–45 minute procedure also uses hydrating serums to bathe new skin while painlessly extracting blackheads and other pore squatters. Gentle and safe for all skin types, the hydrafacial works diligently to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and acne, leaving skin to glow brighter than a childhood star gone supernova.
It might be impossible to go back in time, but that hasn’t stopped the specialists at Esthelis Clinic from trying. At this 10,000 square-foot facility, they administer surgical and noninvasive procedures that help guests leave looking younger than when they entered. Mesotherapy, for instance, works to firm skin with microinjections of vitamins and minerals, while clients’ own platelet-rich plasma might be used to restore the youthful glow of a firefly at prom. In addition to age-defying services, the beauty hotspot also helps visitors stay in shape by offering access to a gym and two full-sized indoor swimming pools.
