The waiting room looks like the reception area of a luxury lodge?a wrought-iron chandelier, dark leather furnishings facing a fireplace, oversize windows looking out into the woods of Mill Stream Run Reservation. This juxtaposition of refinement and nature mirrors the philosophy of Docere Medical Spa & Laser Center's team, which favors organic, medical-grade products and an educative approach when performing each treatment.
Overseen by Drs. Ray Seballos and Jeffrey Viscomi, the staff of nurses, technicians, and aestheticians rejuvenates skin and combats signs of aging through services including laser therapies, cosmetic injections, and facials tailored from product lines such as ?minence Organic Skin Care and Sircuit Cosmeceuticals. Image specialists also soothe sinews with multiple massage modalities and offer a slate of services tailored for men.
Sensitive nostrils are safe at the fume-free Dolce Organic Salon, where no ammonia, plastics, sulfates, or parabens are allowed. Instead, stylists use cruelty-free Organic Color Systems hues and other organic products to color and style the hair they cut. Other types of treatments are just as gentle: instead of wax or a lawnmower, aestheticians remove hair with an antibacterial, antimicrobial potion. Extensions lengthen hair and lashes alike, and makeup artists play up clients’ favorite features.
Dolce’s serene space harmonizes with the salon’s philosophy that earthiness doesn’t mean forgoing stylishness. Ribbons of mosaic cut a curving path through the stone tiles on the floor, and large-scale paintings of luscious fruit overlook furniture in rich leather and wood tones.
Every client that walks through the doors of Joseph's Hair and Nail Salon receives top pampering from stylists and nail technicians with a full assortment of beautifying services. Clients can catch the eye of the town eagle with strategically placed feather extensions, or revamp manes with a full color change. Further above-the-neck beautifying includes fluttering eyelash extensions and makeup applications. Nail technicians top keratin sheets with chip-resistant shellac polish or acrylic nails and can add extra flare with nail art such as tiny stars, stripes, or American flags.
Gold-framed mirrors and zebra-printed chairs add pops of color to Salon Bella Vie’s understated color scheme with muted gray walls and wooden floors. It’s the place stylist Nicole calls her second home, a workstation with a sleek salon chair where men, women, and children sit during cuts, highlights, and games of I Spy.
At Déjà Vu Laser & Medical Spa, skilled aestheticians smoothen mugs rumpled by acne or aging with microdermabrasion treatments for the face and neck. Wielding a stainless-steel wand from the DiamondTome resurfacing system, skin wizards conjure smoother complexions by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any facial cobwebs to reveal new skin underneath. Each wand's tip boasts diamond chips around a vacuum, sloughing away deadbeat cells while light suction immediately absorbs them. A selection of wands enables aestheticians to customize each treatment for patients' individual needs. Over time, treatments can erode many of the symptoms of aging, from fine lines and acne scarring to hyperpigmentation and "Caesar was here" tattoos.
Esprés Nails and Spa’s massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, shiatsu, foot-massage or reiki techniques. Spagoers who choose the first option feel smooth, flowing strokes sweep over tense feet, relaxing tendons drawn taut after too many games of beach racquetball. 20-minute detoxifying ionic foot baths then soothe feet when negative ions dive into warm water and lie in wait under the waves to drag toxins out of toes.
