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.

Anne Marie O'Connor the laser technician behind Head to Toe Essentials Salon & Laser Spa, lives up to the salon's name by eradicating unwanted hair from the entire body. To accomplish this, she turns to the Cynosure Elite laser, which combines two different wavelengths to treat a variety of areas on all types of skin. Each pulse of light targets several follicles at the same time, and the procedure involves little to no downtime, allowing clients to return to the office in time for the daily toner-chugging contest. O'Connor perfected her skills at the Berkowits School of Electrolysis, and takes great pleasure in using her talents to help clients.
