IsIs Nail & Spa’s staff whisks clients away into a squeaky-clean salon space where skilled professionals transform weary exteriors into glossy, like-new packaging with custom spa treatments. Nail techs painstakingly shellac finger and toe tips with traditional, acrylic, and Bio Sculpture gel nail treatments as clients recline in a massaging pedicure chair or receive a soothing shoulder massage as their nails air dry. Pedicurists use products infused with natural ingredients, such as lavender and green tea, to soften calluses and perfume tootsies during specialized footbaths. When faces and backs clamor for the attention lavished on their extremity counterparts, clients can opt for an anti-aging facials to glaze cheekbones in essential oils and G.M. Collin skincare products or a specialty massage to unlock tension and soothe chronic pain incurred from creaky work chairs and watermelon-chucking competitions.
Starting when it opened in 1994, Rani Spas' image specialists have been polishing impressions through waxing, facials, massage, hairstyling, and mani-pedi services. The expert aestheticians enhance skin with a medley of visage-rejuvenating treatments, including the smoothing crystal collagen facial and the Synergie peel, which combines a powerful chemical peel with microdermabrasion to repair skin damaged from acne, sun exposure, and professional-apple-bobbing careers. The spa's stylists also tend to coifs with strand transformations ranging from cuts and updos to highlights and moisturizing treatments, and fuzz fields are left clean and sleek through gentle waxing and traditional threading methods.

The salon's licensed aesthetician, Frances, customizes her facial services using the skills and knowledge it took to become certified as a beauty therapist by ITEC.
QQ Nail Salon and Spa helps redefine what pampering means—at some locations, customers can have their faces covered with a 24-karat-gold mask to improve their appearances. Other facial treatments use G.M. Collin lotions and serums, which are derived from natural ingredients and aren't tested on animals. Other luxurious treatments include massages augmented with natural oils and extracts to help improve circulation, skin condition, and relaxation, and eyebrow tinting so customers can forgo coloring in their brows with messy eyeliner pencils or Sharpie markers.
Using FDA-approved lasers, LaserWorks Laser Center’s licensed staff puts an end to days spent plucking, shaving, waxing, or vacuuming away unwanted hair. Their Cynosure Elite laser targets the melanin––of pigment––in the hair follicles, and gently heats and destroys the root to prevent hair regrowth anywhere from several months to several years. Though the treatment won’t damage skin, some discomfort may occur, and most patients compare the sensation to a rubber-band snap.
The technicians at Queens Laser Hair Removal smooth, tighten, and resurface skin with an arsenal of laser treatments, chemical peels, and cosmetic fillers. By passing a beam of laser light through the skin, the team can permanently reduce unwanted hair across the body or erase veins webbed across the legs. Laser skin tightening deeply heats facial tissue to contour loose skin around the face and neck and defrost icicles hanging from the chin.
