The physicians and aesthetic staff all possess warm, friendly demeanors, ensuring that clients feel comfortable as they undergo one of the center's many beautifying treatments. Continually looking for new ways to rejuvenate exteriors, the aestheticians have developed a facial that harnesses the flavonoids and resveratrol in chocolate to neutralize free radicals that may have waged a microscopic poke war on skin. The spa's mission statement, etched into tan-hued walls, promises "a soothing, comfortable experience" during all services, such as Thai massage and Jane Iredale–makeup applications. Several services take a more scientific approach, employing lasers to remove spider veins, hairs, and cellulite.
New U Med Spa's director, Dr. Jawdat Abboud, and his crew of board-certified cosmetic surgeons fill facial crevices with safe and effective Botox treatments. The FDA–approved solution (a $16/unit value) is gently injected into unwanted face wrinkles, transforming fine-lined mugs into visages that look as youthful as a newly hatched pop star. The natural, protein-based blend is designed to plump collapsed lines for up to four months while blocking nerve signals and sending contracting muscles on vacation. Though the quick procedure results in minimal discomfort and no necessary downtime, the doctor may apply an ice pack or numbing cream to desensitize the area. Supplemental units of Botox facilitate larger treatment areas or allow for multiple visits to create longer-lasting effects.
After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
When Dalia Galinskiene opened Salon & Spa Dalia, she was fulfilling the dream of a little girl in Lithuania who used to create updos and apply makeup on her friends. Today that dream is realized with help from cutting-edge technology and a professional staff who share Dalia's lifelong passion for helping others look beautiful. Specialty facials soothe and nourish the complexion with Guinot products and may use pure vitamin C to camouflage brown spots or high frequencies to communicate with freckles via Morse code.

Board-certified general and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Demetrios Katsaros—who trained at the Cleveland Clinic, the Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center—oversees a team of surgeons, cosmetologists, dieticians, and stylists at ShapeMedUSA. From among their myriad treatments, the mommy makeover restores women's prepregnancy physiques by combining a tummy tuck and liposuction with a breast lift or augmentation. The slate of less-invasive procedures, such as Botox injections and chemical peels, works to subtly enhance beauty and restore youthful hair-twirling habits.
In his own words, surgeon Dr. Wafik Hanna believes firmly that "your face is your calling card." That's why he works with, and not against, his patients' own natural looks. Guided by his philosophy of naturalness, he takes patients' existing bone structure into account when helping them achieve desired complexions and contours. And while many patients opt for surgical services, those preferring non-surgical procedures can opt to rejuvenate their skin with a photofacial, injectables, or thermage, a treatment that tightens the skin. In the 25 years since he opened Hanna Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hanna has showcased his talents not only in his portfolio, but by sharing his wisdom on the pages of The New York Times.
