Doctors Alex and Susan Cocoziello helm COCO Aesthetics, a med spa where they harness their medical expertise to beautify clients with noninvasive services that include body sculpting, spider-vein removal, laser hair removal, and an IPL version of hair removal that zaps the follicle for prolonged smooth skin free of unwanted hair. As trained OB/GYNs, they also offer up medical services to soon-to-be moms, supplying them with prenatal care and complimentary parking for their storks.
The beauty experts at Salon Elegance call upon a decade of experience to craft new looks, along with a toolkit of makeup, henna paste, and Scruples hair products. In addition to cuts, color services, and keratin treatments, staffers specialize in the ancient art of threading, a natural hair-removal method. They create temporary henna tattoos by mixing a base of lemon juice, sugar, and essential oils, the same ingredients used to make aromatherapeutic lemonade. Red curtains frame the windows behind a comfy black leather couch, and rust-colored walls and assorted potted plants give the space a warm, welcoming vibe.
As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
At The New Makeover Salon, the stylists aim to make clients look and feel their best, whether they come in with a specific hairstyle in mind or are unsure of how a hummingbird got lodged in their ponytail. In addition to cuts, colors, and updos, the hair gurus help clients unwind from a stressful week with complimentary glasses of wine or coffee. Threading and waxing services rid clients of unwanted hair, and men can also journey to the salon for a professional face shave.
The technicians at Ageless Beauty Spa combat the effects of time with a menu of high-tech treatments. They harness the power of intense pulsed light to minimize the appearance of sun spots and use mechanical exfoliation to buff away acne, stretch marks, and misplaced bumper stickers. Endermologie treatments work to break down cellulite structures and beauty injections help relax the muscles responsible for laugh lines, frown furrows, and crow's feet.
Cosmobella Medi-Spa & Salon deals in physical transformation while maintaining allegiance to organic products and noninvasive treatments for the hair, face, body, and nails. European and green-tea facials, for instance, combat skin imperfections and foster a youthful glow with cleansing and masks. Full-body treatments yield similar benefits. The parafango treatment, for one, slowly brushes melted vitamin E on the body to moisturize the skin and loosen the muscles.
Cosmobella also offers numerous advanced treatments that encourage weight loss, resulting in slimmer, more toned bodies and svelter shadows. Clients can try a lipo massage, Endermologie treatment, or tripolar cavitation, which targets cellulite and fat with ultrasonic waves.
