Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
The beauty professionals at Aqua Colour Lounge & Medspa enhance the whole head with salon services and med-spa treatments. Owner and senior stylist Rusty Richards regularly attends Bumble and bumble classes in New York City, sharing her know-how with coworkers who cut, color, and retexturize hair. Before salon appointments conclude, stylists equip clients with tips and tricks for re-creating their coiffures at home.
Meanwhile, anti-aging specialists at the med spa diminish the wrinkles and blemishes that result from habitual living. The spa's medical director, Dr. Randolph Richards, has nearly 30 years of experience with medical lasers, making him a credible source when it comes to procedures such as laser rejuvenation and acne photo therapy. Aestheticians work alongside Dr. Richards, improving the look and feel of skin with facials, peels, and dermal injections.
Aura Day Spa and Salon's grass-green walls endow the spacious, contemporary studio with a light, summery feel. This spatial beauty translates into a beauty-bestowing menu of treatments, which consists of facials, massages, nailcare with OPI products, and haircuts for women, men, and children. The massage therapists relax bodies with Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and chair massages, and the aestheticians perform facials with Éminence Organic Skin Care products. These all-natural skincare formulas are composed of raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs to promote skin health, not to replace one's normal meal routine.
Renew Massage Therapy rejuvenates weary bodies through an assortment of soothing and healing treatments. Patrons who partake in the Slice of Paradise package get to first relax under the hands of a skilled massage therapist who is wise in the ways of kneading sore muscles and reducing tension in joints. Then, loosened shoulders are balanced out by pores that get tightened during an exfoliating and deeply cleansing facial. The hand glow treatment uses salt scrub, paraffin dip, and angel wishes to moisturize rough paws. Thirty minutes of reflexology concludes the pampering by stimulating pressure points on extremities to improve circulation and iron crinkled phalanges into straight, invigorated jazz hands.
More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
