The staff at Nagada Med Spa perform laser hair-removal, skin-rejuvenation, and anti-aging treatments using an FDA-approved Candela laser. All practitioners are certified and work under the direct supervision of Dr. Timothy Alexander, a plastic surgeon.
As a licensed aesthetician and waxing specialist, Andela rarely comes across a skin problem she can’t solve. Armed with professional products and advanced technologies such as diamond-head microdermabrasion, she clears complexions and softens skin around half-formed tails. Her services range from customized facials and chemical peels to organic, wax-free hair removal with a soy-based Nufree formula.
Guests checking in at Lisa B and Company could deliberate between the spa's selection of facials and peels—or they could just have both. The menu's luxuriant Velvet Peel calls upon mechanical and chemical exfoliation to double-team stubborn cases of dullness, scarring, and trash strewn about by litterbug eyelashes. Many of the spa's other treatments also boast advanced therapies, such as pedicures infused with anti-inflammatory lavender or softening vanilla milk. In the spa, massage therapists skim heated river stones across pooled tension, and aestheticians resurface bodies with Dead Sea salt. Before or after their services, guests can take a few extra minutes to unwind with a complimentary herbal tea, glass of wine, or detox water.
Men can find a style sanctum inside Lanzetta's retro barbershop, which puts a modern twist on the classic shop with wide, leather-bound barber chairs and a nostalgic barber pole rotating in the window. Minimal styling makes for a more contemporary setting with the ambiance of a cigar bar—sleek leather chairs circle around a rustic wood coffee table where patrons can kick back and watch TV before severing stubble with a straight-razor shave or keeping locks trimmed with a traditional scissor haircut.
Unlike traditional skincare treatments that only provide a temporary fix, skincare at Nourishe works to nurture each person’s genetic makeup to help skin function at its optimal level. Each individually formulated treatment mimics the body’s natural DNA repair to help restore skin cells and achieve a more youthful look. For example, the Nourishe Elixi-lift, a nonsurgical face-lift, can stimulate the growth of natural collagen to help reduce wrinkles without surgery. Even their more basic facial services rely on botanically infused ingredients, using everything from chocolate to chamomile to satisfy the needs and midnight cravings of each client’s individual epidermis.
Indigo Studio's team of body beautifiers provide rejuvenating services to pamper faces and de-fuzz anatomies. Opt for the 60-minute facial to gently expunge excess from pores, followed by a mask customized to your skin type, whether it be dry, oily, or partially obscured by a permanent-marker moustache. While the mask busily scrubs up skin, hands are dipped in a paraffin-wax treatment to emulate the silky texture of the most youthful birthday candle. A relaxing scalp massage finishes the process with a soothing flourish. Choose a waxing service, and a depilatory specialist swiftly evicts freeloading follicles from the desired area. Underarm waxing decreases drag for speedier slip 'n' slide times, and a Brazilian bikini wax leaves bodies sleek and ready for the beach.
Like a Swiss Army knife made out of Legos, Maria Elena Gegunde is many things in one. She holds licenses in aesthetics and massage therapy, certifications in aerobics and personal training, and a degree in physical therapy. Inside Shanti Om Spa’s soothing atmosphere, she and her hand-picked staff draw from their skills during massages that incorporate aromatherapy oils and coconut body scrubs to exfoliate the skin while working over muscles. Other services include facials, butt lifts, lipo laser, and holistic massages.
