Under the direction of Dr. George Tsatsos, Dr. Svetlana Zats, Dr. Mariano Rivera and Dr. Kevin Massard, the staff of Ankle N Foot Center performs podiatric and medical aesthetics services equally adeptly. Doctors can craft customized orthotics from patients' digital measurements, diagnose problems with in-house x-rays and ultrasounds, and help heal injuries with physical-therapy programs led by a penitent stiletto heel. Clients on already happy feet can waltz toward the medical salon, where aestheticians use medically sanitized instruments and safe, natural products to exfoliate feet and polish nails.
American Photon Lipo Centers’ physician-supervised staff offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
Many people think that if they need to get serious work done?a therapeutic massage, microdermabrasion?they have to sacrifice a spa environment for something more clinical. Spa Space defies that notion by offering an extensive menu of results-oriented treatments in a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere. Their approach has been lauded by many: Lucky magazine called the space "pure bliss," while Allure honored their Pacific Paradise body treatment with one of their coveted Best of Beauty awards.
As one of their signature services, the Pacific Paradise treatment follows with Spa Space's philosophy. Not only is it a 30-minute mango scrub that softens skin and relaxes the body, but it also includes a one-hour massage that reduces tension. Most of their treatments are this way?there's also a pedicure with almond oil to treat dry, itchy skin, and a Sonya Dakar fitness facial with massage to tighten facial muscles. Services are administered with products from brands such as Kiehl's and SkinCeuticals, and clients can arrange to order lunch from Pastoral between services for their hungry bike waiting outside.
Developed in collaboration with cosmetic dentist Dr. Christian Yaste, Glam White is an at-home tooth-whitening product designed to deliver expedient results with minimum sensitivity. The carbamide-peroxide gel is made from natural, organic ingredients, and is used in all of Glam White's products. There are three take-home kits to choose from and a tooth polishing and whitening kit, as well as an on-the-go pen perfect for touching up recently whitened teeth or paper that's only yellowed in certain spots.
Ellehomme Holistic Med Spa soothes clients as soon as they step into its 4,000-square-foot realm, which is overseen by a medical director, registered nurses, and aestheticians. They specialize in cosmetic treatments, from injectables, such as Botox and Juvederm, to laser hair removal and other services that smooth skin and eschew sandpaper.
In one of the massage spa's five treatment rooms, licensed therapists plunder ligaments for stashes of stress, using more than five modalities such as reflexology and deep tissue. Terry-lined waffle robes and cozy spa slippers escort clients to treatments and the relaxation lounge, where they mentally prepare themselves for reentry into a society filled with stress and evil robots.
By the time they enter one of six private treatment rooms at Azul by ElleHomme Holistic Spa, guests have already started flirting with serenity. Before appointments, clients cozy up with a cup of hot tea while relaxing in a robe and slippers. Restful music lilts through the space as staffers carry out their signature services. Licensed massage therapists and aestheticians deliver a pampering trifecta of treatments, sorted into massage, skincare, and healing therapies such as reiki. The staff brings brightness back to faces with Revision Skincare products, delves into aches with deep-tissue massage, and puts pairs at ease in the master couples' suite, whose soundproof walls create a cozier space for two than a pair of tandem footie pajamas.
