Plastikos originated as a cosmetic- and reconstructive surgery center, but board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Susan E. Kolb and Dr. Julian Gordon wanted to make a place for their clients to just relax. So they decided to expand their clinic with the Plastikos Medical Spa, a tranquil studio that serves up a range of spa treatments. To combat signs of aging, the TCA-based Obagi Blue chemical peel lifts away dull layers of skin and revitalizes cellular regeneration. Antioxidant-rich variants might include botanical ingredients sourced from blueberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin.
Meanwhile, expert massage therapists might use deep-tissue or reflexology techniques to excavate tension and undo stubborn knots. Alternatively, an Endermologie lipo-massage aims to disperse fatty tissue with focused kneads and rolls. The med-spa also uses advanced know-how to beautify clients with noninvasive medical treatments. The Ion Magnum, for instance, uses analog waveforms to trigger neurons that mimic physical activity, thereby building muscle and joint strength. The beauty haven also offers cold-laser LiLa body-contouring and Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatments to ready bodies for swimsuit season or a winking competition.
At E.V.E, treatments and services are based on energy healing, which aims to fine-tune the energy systems in the body to restore balance and allow the body to heal itself. Potential benefits include better sleep, weight loss, reduction of chronic pain, and overall detoxification. In conjunction with these treatments, clients can also opt for custom meal planning based on metabolic testing, symptoms, goals, and health concerns. Meal plans, which are created by a nutrition specialist, include four weeks' worth of recipes that complement treatments intended to align the mind, body, and spirit and can be tailored to any allergies.
Since 2003, New Image Medical Aesthetic Center's Dr. Gregory Zengo has been drawing on his expertise in noninvasive treatments to beautify bodies from the inside and out. Through training, he's kept abreast of the latest techniques for Botox, mesotherapy, and vein treatments, and has even combined the techniques of several leading experts—including Dr. Jeff Klein, the inventor of tumescent liposuction—to create his own office-based treatment for fat reduction. Whether skimming off years or inches from bodies, Dr. Zengo is directly involved every step of the way.
His hands-on dedication to beauty has also been the guiding force for his physicians training program, through which he has been sharing his aesthetic skills since 2006. Dr. Zengo has trained more than 400 physicians since the program's inception, giving others the benefit of his keenness for spider-vein injections, natural hormone balancing, and the GPS coordinates of the fountain of youth.

Working alongside the other talented stylists at Dash Salon and Spa, stylist Kelly creates trendy, yet timeless hairstyles for men, women, and children. Besides haircuts, Kelly can nourish dry, damaged strands back to health with shampoo and conditioner that leave hair looking healthy and silky.

Sweet Earth Therapeutic Massage owner Myrna Lovell-Jones knows the ins and outs of human anatomy—she holds both a nursing degree and a certification in advanced massage therapy. The therapist draws from this holistic knowledge to perform a range of massages, including Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, aromatherapy, and pre- and post-natal. In reflexology, certain parts of the feet are believed to correspond to various organs, muscle groups, and funny bones throughout the body; during a reflexology session, a therapist applies focused pressure to relieve any tense parts of the body.
