Some salons are content to slather faces with a mix of mud and sugar and call it a facial. That’s not the case at SeriouSkin, where aestheticians curate a menu that includes only those treatments and products that have been clinically proven to safely remedy skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. The spa’s licensed staff members are all trained masters of their trade, skillfully deploying services that range from laser hair removal and permanent makeup to FDA-approved Bio-Roller micro-needle therapy, which improves the look and feel of skin through use of fast-moving, collagen-stimulating needles filled with inspirational quotes.
Despite its clinical technology, the salon features a softer side, including a brow bar where aestheticians can shape eye awnings with a range of powders, pencils, waxes, and brow mascaras, or enhance lashes with conditioners and extensions. The studio is thoroughly stocked with a wide range of quality products by brands such as PCA Skin, Ayur-Medic, and Jade, and aestheticians are happy to recommend products that can be used at home to enhance any treatment’s effectiveness.

Housed in the historic Wiltsie & Crump building—originally erected in 1886 to serve as Pittsford's general store—The Soho Salon's warmly lit interior is home to a collective of former salon owners, veteran colorists, and seasoned stylists. The cosmetic doyens flock to the salon for a chance to work with owner Chas Inzinna, the aesthetic engineer who designed the Hair Color Formula Encyclopedia—an essential reference for colorists on how to create more than 70,000 hues. Inside, bright-red mirrors punctuate lush, cream-curtained walls and couches. Golden lamps dangle above the freestanding chairs, where stylists, such as 15-year veteran Orlando de Nobrega, cut, color, and style coifs into busts of Wile E. Coyote.
In a tranquil spa space, Saggio Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists alleviate stresses stored throughout the body with a range of traditional and exotic facials, massages, and other spa services. Seven types of massage blend various modalities and may incorporate oils, hot paraffin, or hot stones to soothe aching muscles and relax tattoos of growling tigers. Both massages and facials sometimes call on aromatic essential oils and scrubs to refurbish skin; standouts among these include eucalyptus and mint oils, sea salts, and manuka honey. When not soothing back pains or flushing dirt from pores in their private treatment rooms, the spa staff organizes bridal and birthday parties for larger groups.

To complete the soothing experience, the spa and salon's dark cabinets, copper-hued walls, and flickering fireplace create an atmosphere as peaceful as a dove-producing magician.
