Stephanie Wrubel, licensed clinical aesthetician and owner of The Skin Clinic, the recipient of the 2013 Best of Huntington Award in the Medical Spa category by the Huntington Award Program, helps to solve visitors? epidermal maladies with organic skincare salves and advanced med-spa technology. Aided by medical aesthetician Deirdre Blanco, Stephanie clears away oil and expired poker faces with facials, glycolic peels, and acne treatments that uproot dead cells to reveal healthy, youthful skin. Alternatively, noninvasive laser treatments target spider veins, unwanted body hair, and cellulite, leaving epidermal expanses smoother and more evenly toned.
Suvara's award-winning airbrush experts gild their guests with a UV-free glow. Each sunless-specialist has completed a rigorous certification program, and will work with their clients to achieve their personal perfect pigmentation. Suvara's exclusive tanning blend contains health-boosting ingredients such as vitamins A and C to improve skin texture and peaceably fight the signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to lock in notoriously flighty moisture. This hand-sprayed, natural and organic mist coats the body in less than 45 minutes, with customizable tonal results ranging from blissful butterscotch to buccaneer-baiting gold. Your new streak-free hue darkens over the next eight hours, and lasts around one week without special care, or longer with routine moisturizing and daily massages from King Midas.
Like an Indiana Jones film, Ritual Wellness & Laser Spa is a mix of ancient tradition and seemingly supernatural technology. But rather than recovering artifacts, the spa is trying to recover youth. During skin-tightening treatments, the GentleYAG laser stimulates collagen production, which in turn causes wrinkles and imperfections to fade. When scheduled in tandem with facial rejuvenation acupuncture—a procedure meant to tone the muscles of the face and neck—the treatment leaves features especially bright and refreshed, without the aid of surgery.
The staff relies on lasers for IPL photofacials as well as hair and spider-vein removal. Otherwise, they smooth out complexions with microdermabrasion, peels, and facials. During an antioxidant trio facial, for example, they apply nutrient-rich creams and heated compresses to the skin to combat signs of environmental damage, such as fallen leaves stuck to your forehead. They also administer services for the body, from slimming body wraps to soothing massages.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
As an independent massage therapist, I can pay special attention to my clients' individual needs. I do not need to adhere to time constraints, unlike the chains. If a client is scheduled for 60 minutes, they get 60 minutes, not 55. I specialize in Swedish, medical, and pregnancy massage. I also work with breast cancer patients
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I work in the most simple and relaxed setting, which allows me to give a relaxing massage experience.
Since its first studio opening in Long Island in 1996, Angel Tips has been dedicated to providing expert waxing, nail, and eye treatments. This dedication has remained steadfast as the brand––which also includes Tahiti’a Spas––has grown to more than 60+ locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, each staffed with passionate and highly trained technicians.
Despite the company's ever-expanding presence, each Angel Tips remains solely focused on the customer, following strict sanitary procedures that include using only disposable files and nail buffers. They also strive to make each mani-pedi, as luxurious as possible, often incorporating exfoliating honey scrubs, hot stone leg and foot massages, and the latest polishes, including chip-resistant OPI gel. When it comes to skincare, aestheticians leave no pore un-purged, using algomasks and microdermabrasion to polish faces and exfoliating bodies with a signature scrub, detoxifying sauna, and Vichy shower massage. And to ensure skin stays as soft and smooth as possible, technicians can also remove unwanted hair from more than 15 different areas, either by waxing, threading, or asking each hair annoying questions until it leaves.

She and her stylists cosset both men's and women's hair with everything from simple cuts and highlights to more modern services such as balayage, Japanese hair straightening, and feather extensions. As their stylists snip away, clients soak in the beauty of the salon's location within the refurbished historic Northport home where Teddy Roosevelt won his first mustache-growing contest.
