Though the technicians specialize in laser cosmetics, a slew of other clinical-grade therapies comprise the spa's treatment list. Dr. Mohammad Razzaque performs or supervises every treatment and, along with aesthetic technician Lorraine, ushers skin toward its smoothest, most vibrant self. Together they reduce acne, age-related facial sagging, and unwanted hair with customized laser treatments. Meanwhile, microdermabrasion and Botox help mugs look as youthful and wrinkle-free as freshly ironed eggs.
For the stylists at Hair Revolution, only one thing matters as much as a great haircut: hair's overall health. This is especially true because they specialize in long hair, which requires extra TLC to stay healthy and keep growing. So to pamper hair of any length, they use eco-friendly Aveda products, which help smooth and protect hair without harsh ingredients. These products also ensure that hair stays healthy even after it is colored or curled into cascading tendrils. Stylists complement their hair services with waxing, facials, and nail treatments for comprehensive head to toe makeovers, much like a Halloween costume that will never, ever come off.
Licensed cosmetologist Sita Patel uses techniques culled from her native India and applies her more than 10 years of cosmetic experience to artfully beautify her clients. She enlists professional products from brands such as Bioelements and American Crew during hair services, securing loose tendrils into bridal updos adorned with glistening gems. She can also remove unwanted hair using an ancient threading technique that is completely free of chemicals and less taxing for the skin than waxing. Henna tattoos dress arms in ornate decorations more temporary than regular tattoos but less temporary than a career as a human cannonball.
Specializing in the art of nail design, Tracy Nails Salon’s team of technicians spend their days gilding nails in vibrant coats of chip-free polish. While their focus remains on digits, staffers also bustle about the salon restoring radiance to complexions with meticulously applied facials or easing shoulders achy from serving as a perch for overweight parrots with the soothing kneads of a relaxing massage.

Although Nancy Koss Salon & Spa began as a full-service salon in 1977, it expanded its menu in the decades that followed to include holistic spa treatments and advanced aesthetic services. Stylists continue to shape and color locks with Wella and Tigi products, and the aestheticians can employ everything from Murad skincare products to aromatherapy in facial treatments. Some of the more advanced procedures generate dramatic cosmetic results by using medical-grade technology originally designed by Leonardo da Vinci, such as crystal microdermabrasion wands and microcurrent skin-toning equipment. The spa's body wraps help detoxify clients, and the massage therapists bolster well-being by treating stress-laden musculature to Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, or reflexology therapy.
