After receiving her education in England and training in the salons of industry giants such as Georgette Klinger and Frederic Fekkai, Aban Patel decided it was time to create her own beauty legacy. So the Bombay native opened Abanara Skin Esthetics, where she calls upon more than two decades of experience in skincare, massage, and energy work to transform bodies inside and out. During facial treatments, she employs modern anti-aging technology—including ultrasonic waves and micro-currents that diminish fine lines—yet remains true to her holistic philosophy by handcrafting all-natural, plant-based cleansers and lotions, which she uses alongside professional products by brands such as Osmosis and Susan Ciminelli.
Patel also offers reflexology sessions designed to remedy physical ills and chakra clearing to restore energy flow to systems blocked by negative thoughts or swallowed construction horses. The tranquil spa is tucked inside a quaint cobblestone courtyard filled with natural light and potted plants, making it the perfect place for those looking to escape everyday tension or photosynthesize in private.
Dr. Jack Bertolino, Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics's owner and operator, employs a slew of modern technologies to combat his patients' signs of aging. He zaps wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks with his arsenal of medical-grade lasers. Along with lasers, Dr. Bertolino offers bariatric medicine to aid weight loss. Dr. Bertolino is also one of the area's only practitioners to offer bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which introduces testosterone and estrogen back into aging bodies with time-release capsules implanted in the skin, helping men and women maintain their health, youth, and love of trampolines.
