Although Maria Lekkakos still possesses the beauty that helped her earn the Miss Massachusetts USA title in 2004, she's far from intimidating—Stuff Magazine calls her "chatty" and "down-to-earth." The outgoing celebrity aesthetician spends her days running a salon and spa that features an ambitious lineup of services. Voted Best Facial of 2010 by Northshore magazine, each facial treatment comes with a skin consultation from a knowledgeable aesthetician, a blend of marine botanicals from Thalgo, and a chorus of "oohs" from wrinkly Ronald Reagan masks. Maria's ability to return skin to glowing youthfulness has drawn attention from Boston Common Magazine_ and a large celebrity clientele that includes Salma Hayek, Leslie Bibb, Rosario Dawson, Brooke Shields and Maria Bello.
Since 1998, Solar Infusions has been helping the North Shore look fabulous year round, with our luxurious, state-of-the-art tanning beds in a spa like atmosphere. You will find our facilities clean, our staff well trained, and the atmosphere non-pretentious and comfortable.
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.
Tucked inside the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, The Spa at Atlantis tends to world-weary guests tired after a day of splashing around the CoCo Key Water Resort, as well as local bodies dropping by for a simple day of pampering. Experienced massage therapists revive fatigued muscles and increase flexibility through a variety of modalities, incorporating hot stones into many styles to ease deep-seated aches and keep newly lightened spirits from floating away.
Facials blend cleansing and toning tonics to calm acne or aging skin and leave mugs well-moisturized with custom masks, and OPI polishes enliven digits after nails and cuticles are meticulously groomed and softened with lotion or exfoliating sugar scrubs. After working up an appetite by way of relaxation, clients can also opt to enjoy a light spa lunch of café sandwiches and salads or test out new feathered hair extensions by taking flight to the nearest pizza parlor.
