At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.
A front desk topped with pillar candles welcomes guests to Hair Essentials Salon, immediately ensconcing them amid its modern furniture bathed in warm, golden tones.

Updos, downdos, and perms: the licensed stylists at A Cut Above sculpt all these looks. Employing products from top-selling brands, they also dye hair and add highlights. They also schedule services for wedding parties, and makeover mannequins that fill seats at opening nights of plays that haven’t sold out.

With Dr. Raffaela Russo bringing nearly 20 years of experience to her role as its medical director, Didoria Med Spa offers up a holistic host of face-fixing treatments. Soothe distressed visages back to beautiful with one of eight different 60-minute facials. A deep-cleaning facial or skin-brightening facial defuses dermal landmines, while an antiaging facial, a facial mask, or an antiacne facial keeps silhouettes smooth for shadowpuppeting conventions. Savor some rugged refreshment with a gentleman's hot stone treatment, detoxify with a liquid oxygen session, or enjoy the wrinkle-reducing Fiola facial treatment. The homey feel of Didoria's waiting room and treatment areas warmly welcome clients as they attempt to make things right with their own perturbed dimples and frowny freckles.
