At Schlessinger Eye & Face, Dr. David Schlessinger goes far beyond eye drops and the Snellen chart. As a board-certified surgeon, Schlessinger offers three types of surgical treatments: oculoplastic surgery for instances of ptosis, skin cancer, or tearing disorders; neuro-ophthalmology, which covers all things relating to the eyes and brain, such as double vision or migraines; and, lastly, cosmetic procedures, including brow- and face-lifts and upper- or lower-eyelid surgery.
Supplementing Dr. Schlessinger's cosmetic procedures, his clinic's med spa also offers proven noninvasive beautification procedures. From within the med spa, his staff of licensed medical aestheticians battles the effects of aging and sun damage with chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom European facials that leave faces beaming brighter than a headlight in a snowstorm.
Angel Tips Nail Spa specializes in lavish nail care packages performed with care and attentiveness. Services such as the chocolate pedicure—which includes a chocolate sea salt scrub, hot stone massage, and anti-oxidant chocolate cream—promise a relaxing and pampered sojourn that lasts from the first touch of the file to the final stroke of polish. Inside of this clean and modern spa, technicians also offer waxing, massage, and facials.
At Gentle Touch Laser Centers, FDA-approved lasers do more than just shed light on skin. When manned by the center’s certified technicians, they can eliminate unwanted hair follicles, smooth coarsely textured skin, shrink pores, and neutralize hyperpigmentation. As for unwanted spider veins, there’s a treatment for that, too; instead of painful injections or covering legs with handfuls of concealer on a daily basis, a laser can gently break down and reduces the appearance of the darkened vessels.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.
Although hair is still the focus—stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Long Island Laser Hair Therapy, a member of the HairLoss.com Association, stimulates hair regrowth for men and women with laser therapy alongside DHT-blocking supplements that sustain post-treatment growth. After a digital microscopic scalp analysis, clients recline in a cozy chair as a European-developed cosmetic laser rejuvenates flagging follicles. As the laser bolsters blood flow around the scalp, hair loss ceases in 93 percent of clients. The treatment can pump up hair volume by 25 percent and foster thicker, fuller hair for hair transplant clients and shedding Koosh balls.
