If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
ZenzaSpa Wellness Boutique cultivates a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can cleanse their bodies and minds with a full menu of facials, massages, and skin care services. Facials and peels aim to create stunning visages, while classic massage techniques help reduce muscle kinks and knots. Alternately, the seaweed body wrap and lavender leg and foot scrub use natural ingredients to ensure bodies feel clean and smooth. Thanks to its relaxing services and atmosphere, ZenzaSpa was named Best Spa in Bergen County in 2014 by (201) Magazine.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Rapaport, founder and medical director of Cosmetic Skin and Surgery Center, has been practicing dermatology for more than 30 years. In those three decades, his work and achievements in the field have earned him a spot on U.S. News & World Report's list of Top Doctors. He has patented three skincare products, become a training physician for many injectable beauty solutions, and written articles for a number of beauty publications. His passion for skin aesthetics has also drawn him to master the most cutting-edge laser treatments, addressing imperfections such as wrinkles, unwanted tattoos, and cellulite.
Tranquil aromas and the sounds of soft music drift through the relaxing pathways of Deldor Day Spa & Salon, where clients unwind by slipping into plush robes and Sensi sandals. Attentive spa concierges pour steaming cups of tea to warm the soul and awaken the mind before aestheticians beautify bodies with more than 70 indulgent treatments. The vast variety of services allows guests to soften skin and reduce signs of aging in a single visit that's preferable to the local swimming pool with paraffin wax and time machines.
The massage therapists and aesthetician at Spa Dew perform treatments that combine Eastern and Western sensibilities—all within a tranquil, nature-inspired ambiance. The 5,000-square-foot space boasts a reception area with a waterfall and groupings of plants and flowers bring the outdoors in, as does a wall decorated with variously sized tree cross sections. The water fountain in the hallway further nods to nature, and leads to a steam room and spacious relaxation rooms for women and men.
A privacy suite allows couples to share time in a sauna and get a side-by-side Korean-style scrub or a massage with heated stones. The beauty experts also use nature-based products including sea salt, Dead Sea mud, and Decleor essential oils, which are free of harsh chemicals and animal derivatives such as unicorn tears.
The aestheticians at Chen Skin Care and Spa fight blemishes and signs of aging with skincare services backed by products from brands such as Dermalogica, and PCA Skin. Chen's signature facial follows a brief skin analysis and freckle Rorschach test with an organic mask that supplements the results of an exfoliation, extraction, and detoxifying massage. Anti-inflammatory gel and an oatmeal mask sing hymns of hydration to delicate epidermises during the sensitive-skin facial, and male clients neutralize razor burn with the deep pore cleansing of the gentlemen's facial. A full-body aromatherapy massage combines natural herb and flower scents with head-to-toe strokes in order to rebalance the body and mind more effectively than log rolling on an abacus does.
Warmly stained hardwood blankets the floor at Chen Skin Care and Spa, where neutral-toned walls shut out such noisy outside distractions as ringing cell phones and road rage delivered by Morse code. Whimsical sets of bubble-shaped mirrors reflect the graceful shapes of vases sprouting tall grasses and branches.
