Visiting Healthy Digestion and More is akin to hitting the reset button positioned directly above your navel. For the health center's services are designed to rid the digestive and circulatory systems of the toxins that we encounter on a daily basis. Colon hydrotherapy sessions, for example, flood large intestines with warm, sanitized water, while ionic foot baths and ear candling treatments provide spa-like comfort in addition to cleansing benefits.
Facials were meant to be relaxing—something the proprietors of Beau Esthetics try to infuse into every service at their spa. It begins the moment a client walks into the clean, white space and continues through each facial treatment and waxing service. Aestheticians use fine Decléor aromatherapy skincare products to even and tone the skin during each facial, taking care to keep their client in a peaceful state all the while. But skincare is really at the center of each service. Skincare therapies come with their own customizations to suit individual skin types and the unique microneedle therapy system (MTS) offers an intense anti-aging treatment that promotes collagen production.
The aestheticians of Vicky’s Skincare aim to prevent beauty from expiring with an extensive selection of anti-aging facials. Using an arsenal of advanced skincare equipment, practitioners target hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and dehydration with active ingredients such as collagen and vitamins. In addition to skincare, the team also performs massages and Indiba treatments, a detoxifying process designed to eliminate excess fluids, spur circulation, and stimulate muscles. The service can be performed on the entire body, or targeted to the belly, back, lower body, or foam finger.
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.
Opulent chandeliers hang from the ceiling, reflecting light off the gilded mirrors that decorate Jolie Toi Salon & Spa. Clients can recline on the leopard-print sofa in the waiting area before having their hair tousled, snipped, and braided into Celtic knots by owner-stylist Charbel Mousallem. With 15 years of styling experience in London, Lebanon, and the United States, Charbel’s haircuts, conditioning treatments, and professional styling have enhanced the heads of celebrities such as Elton John as well as contestants on America’s Next Top Model. Aesthetician Sylwia Gorzkowska rounds out the spa’s beautifying services and brings 10 years of experience to the table, having worked with the renowned Elemis and AmorePacific skincare companies. Her cleansing facials and waxing services have spruced up the faces of celebrities such as Tiki Barber and have found their way onto the printed pages of Vogue and Elle.
Seafoam green styling stations aren't the only bright aspects of Cira Creation Salon. Since 1991, owners and sisters Cira Lo Bue and Connie Fiduccia have delighted visitors with their vibrant personalities, which grabbed the attention of Fort Lee Patch contributor Robyn Nadel in 2011. As positivity permeates throughout the entire salon, the duo spruces up hairdos with precision cuts, keratin treatments, and coloring services. Their team also includes stylist Nina, who specializes in hair extensions, and nail technician Monica, who softens rough hands with paraffin wax treatments and all-night romantic comedy marathons.
With whimsical wall decals, pink and white draperies, and treatment beds upholstered in shimmering satin, Stylash looks more like a doll's dream house than a stuffy salon. It's a fitting setting for the shop's aestheticians, who use hypoallergenic glue and an extra-light touch to doll up lash lines with long, individual eyelash extensions that can last up to one month. But the comfy, feminine atmosphere also serves a purpose—the more relaxed clients are, the better their eyelashes adhere. To that end, the staff recommends that clients keep talking and yodeling to a minimum during application and encourages them to bring in personal music players to help quiet their minds.
