Beauty experts say that it's important to make sure your dermatologist or med spa doesn't use just one laser to treat a wide variety of concerns. Chances are, that laser will do one or two things really well and probably pop a bag of popcorn in a pinch, but it won't effectively treat every skin concern. That's where the Art of Natural Beauty Center really shines. It boasts 10 distinctive laser machines, which can be used to enhance almost every area of the body.
One noninvasive laser shrinks fat cells and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Another microablative laser resurfaces faces and fades fine lines and wrinkles. Still another removes unwanted tattoos. Before performing many of these treatments, technicians use a Skintel melanin reader to make sure the lasers are set to the appropriate setting for the client's skin.
Such high-tech treatments likely bring to mind a stark doctor's-office environment, and yet, the spa-like Art of Natural Beauty Center relaxes with a mixture of candles, calming music, and refreshments. It also fine-tunes bodies with pampering spa services, including glow-enhancing body scrubs, French green clay algae wraps, and customized facials that start with face mapping.
Sandoony USA takes the concept of the American melting pot seriously; it’s blended the bathhouse traditions of Eastern Europe into a devoted relaxation center that pairs three types of saunas with just as many pools. After a stint sweating out toxins in one of two dry Russian saunas, guests jump into the cold plunge pool to refresh their bodies and shock their pores closed without showing them the phone bill from NASA’s calls to Neptune. The hot, thick air of the Finnish sauna and Turkish steam room warm up chilled bones before the lap pool gets muscles moving again. A final soak amid the massaging jets of the jacuzzi erases any lingering stress. After drying off amid the pool deck’s tables and hanging TVs, an opulent dining room or poolside café awaits with plates such as feta-cheese-and-tomato salads or beef tongue with horseradish.
Brooklyn Banya welcomes weary visitors into a relaxing Russian bathhouse, where saunas, steam rooms, and pools soothe aching bodies and open pores. Patrons stow valuables in lockers, for which they may bring their own locks, and don flip-flops before moving between baths of different temperatures, which can increase circulation and help the immune system. The bathhouse?s therapeutic jacuzzi bubbles with cozy heat, and ice baths chill sore muscles. Staff members perform body-bettering treatments, such as salt scrubs, which leave skin smoother than a newborn pickpocket. The hamam?s attached sundeck and caf??serving fresh juice, black tea with honey, and authentic Russian fare?ensure that patrons leave calm, sated, and rejuvenated.
