An elegant palace of pampering greets pore proprietors to Maison Esthetique Christiane Bourque Spa, where indulgence and rejuvenation is the norm. Relax in the lounge and perk up the dermis with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea before the helpful, friendly staff whisks you away for the classic European facial ($80) and classic pedicure ($45) treatments. Close your eyes and relax as a master aesthetician uses traditional techniques to deeply cleanse the pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and massage the skin during the 50-minute facial. The treatment will restore the frontispiece to a fit and bright disposition, sealed in its shiny fate with a creamy, rich mask personalized for your skin type and favorite Tony Danza character. Equal care is lavished on the lower paws for the classic pedicure. An exfoliation will stimulate shoe-fillers while a deliberate polishing of the toe chapeaus leaves them feeling dapper, bright, and spry atop feet feeling soft and silky.
Under the expert guidance of Drs. Nathalie Majorek and Mavis Jaworski, the aestheticians at Dermatique harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each 40-minute session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that it can easily sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots are then absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through natural detoxification processes and a complex system of waterslides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Look Your Best's age-vanquishing team of board-certified physicians and nurses aim to whittle down wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections. A physician or nurse begins by examining facial fields to suss out each crease and determine a plan of attack. In a brief 30- to 45-minute session, the smoothing serum is injected directly into the facial muscles that are responsible for frown lines, laugh lines, and pug-impersonation lines, preventing their contraction. Newly liberated lines soften over the following three–five days, leaving a smoother appearance for up to four months.
