As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.
Owner and stylist Jill opened Santa Fe Salon back in 1992. She and her small team of stylists and nail technicians have a true passion for their work and frequently take refresher classes to keep their skills up to date. They specialize in Redken and Goldwell hair color and mani-pedis with bright OPI, Essie, and Misa nail polishes.
A passion for wellness powers Jill Breier morning, noon, and night, whether she’s volunteering at Red Cross blood drives or the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer or performing therapeutic massages. This certified massage therapist draws upon training from the Essex Group Institute for Massage and Bodywork as she tailors her techniques to the needs of each client, including moms-to-be and cancer patients.
Jill's Swedish massages teem with circular friction, gentle taps, and strokes that glide across the body, whereas her foot-reflexology sessions apply pressure solely on the soles to stimulate body organs and recount how each little piggy went to the market. Aromatherapy and hot-stone sessions draw on soothing basalt stones and oils, which come in calming scents such as lavender and energizing scents such as eucalyptus, to invigorate the senses. When customizing a massage to an individual client's needs, Jill and her team use a holistic approach to ease pain, promote mobility, and enhance the flow of nutrient-rich blood, leaving bodies as charged up as Edison's Roomba.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
To keep their skills fresh, the staff at Studio M head to New York and Beverly Hills to learn the latest beauty trends and techniques. Once back at their Clifton salon, the stylists blend these new skills with their years of experience to create flattering styles with ombre highlights, Keratin Complex straightening treatments, and SoCap hair extensions. Meanwhile, aestheticians perform Yonka facials and crystal microdermabrasion to restore skin's youthful glow as digits receive coats of OPI polish and LCN tips. For head-to-toe rejuvenation, clients can call upon the spa's therapist who customizes massages to suit each guest, using hot stones to ease tight muscles and reflexology to relax hopelessly tangled toes.
Because hair grows at approximately 1 centimeter each month, the professional hair artists at My Fancy Strands perform specialized extension treatments to save clients from waiting several years for longer locks. Before setting to work, the stylists consult with clients and examine strands and hair types to determine the ideal application methods for new extensions. These techniques include braidless weaves, cold fusions, microlinks, and microrings, all of which eschew damaging methods such as applying excessive heat to hair or feeding it human growth hormones. With more than 51 hair colors and a variety of textures to choose from, Fancy Strands’ stock of faux strands blends in with natural hair of all kinds to fool even the most inquisitive comb-wielding school nurse.
