Whether via chemical peels, photofacials, or even Botox injections, combating the signs of aging is the primary goal at Millcreek Laser Cosmetic Center. Guest can visit one of the center’s licensed aestheticians, who will administer deeply exfoliating chemical peels, advanced skin-rejuvenation systems, and laser-light wrinkle-reduction treatments that visibly tone and tighten the visage within a series of three to six sessions. Licensed physicians are also on hand to inject wrinkled foreheads with Botox or Dysport.
JaggedEDGE Salon's enthusiastic, style-savvy staff performs a bounty of services powered by premium Redken and Pureology products. Lock-locked ladies can pair a cut and style ($36 and up) with an all-over color ($52 and up) or add a permanent wave or curl to their standard look ($82 and up). For finer follicular particulars, the salon also offers extensions by the strand ($6 and up per strand), eyebrow-accurate tinting ($20 and up), and waxing ($15 and up). With the generous value of today's Groupon, gracious guests should have no trouble covering multiple alterations in a single visit. Appointments are required, so phone ahead before stopping in.
Salon and Spa Fifth Avenue's attentive aestheticians resurface epidermises that have been withered or dehydrated by sun exposure and aging with soothing facials, décolleté treatments, and full-body spa packages that restore vibrant, dewy skin. During the hour and fifteen-minute Sun-Lover's facial, a low-level current pulses over visages, diminishing wrinkles, fine lines, and under-eye origami. A warm towel compress quenches parched pores and a customized mask exfoliates skin. All-natural moisturizing products, such as herb-and-flower-infused lip scrub, nourish dehydrated surfaces more efficiently than a facial sprinkler system.
The beauticians in training at Cameo College welcome visitors to the comfortable confines of their new cosmetic studio––a contemporary workshop space that mirrors the demands of the professional salon world. Upon arrival, follow the aromatherapy scents to the lower level's adult day spa, where you’ll be greeted by a friendly staff, more than 60 high-fashion styling stations, and an 800-galloon saltwater aquarium filled with impeccably groomed fish.
The wellness wizards at Shangri-La Spa invigorate bodies by pampering overworked toes, kneading away muscle tension, and assessing overall body health . Each wellness package starts with a 50-minute spa pedicure, which treats feet to an antimicrobial milk-and-honey foot soak that, much like a Hazmat sock, extracts toxins from human flippers. Attentive aestheticians scrub toes with an all-natural sugar scrub before treating backup hands to a choice of foot-detox mask or paraffin-wax treatment, a polish application, and a soothing foot-and-leg massage. Next, a licensed massage therapist strokes away body stresses during a 60-minute body massage, which takes place in an individual soundproof room to let patrons unwind in private. Once patients are as relaxed and cool as a cucumber wearing sunglasses, a custom body-scan health assessment uses biofeedback technology to examine body processes and uncover food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and long-lost lego pieces.
