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.
Beau Monde Salon and Spa owner Liz Pierro is committed to pursuing the most modern hair and aesthetics treatments, which has led to the curation of a service menu that seems to include almost everything. Stylists begin each service with a shampoo and scalp massage, and can also take clients into private rooms for fittings of ready-to-wear wigs and sheitels. In spa rooms that are equally private because they have doors, therapists perform Beau Monde's signature deluxe massages, which combine two modalities into a double-length session, as well as custom body wraps with mud and pure marine extracts. The rest of the menu includes everything from manicures to ultrasonic cavitation, all of which is performed in a beautiful, like-home space furnished with hardwood floors, sheer curtains, and showers lined with spa tile.
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.
