The shelves, drawers, and manicure stations at New Kim’s Nail and Spa are packed with a spectacular array of beauty tools, from nail files to professional waxing products to aromatic massage oils. Skilled specialists reach for these tools when administering nail and spa services, whether treating tired feet to warm milk soaks, protein masks, and organic homemade scrubs, or adorning fingernails in durable gel polishes. They expertly tattoo eyes and lips with permanent makeup, and lengthen lashes with glamorous extensions made from silk, mink, and unicorn tails when in-season. During massage sessions, therapists relieve tired muscles and aching spines with soothing hot stone treatments.
Silk Villa Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists give clients their full attention. They begin appointments by discussing any concerns or desires, and then apply this information toward delivering results. Aestheticians and nail techs integrate organic ingredients into most services, whereas bodywork specialists call upon ancient therapies such as reflexology and qi gong to bring relief and relaxation.
Licensed aesthetician Bessie Ktistakis is the owner and founder of Pamper Aesthetics & Make-Up. The skincare spa's warm, bedroom-style treatment room is a relaxing space to have skin tended to, whether it’s with a classic facial with a face, neck, and shoulder massage or a deep-pore clearing facial, which frees blocked pores and hydrates the skin.
The aestheticians at Mandy's Nail Spa groom clients from head to toe with beautifying and pampering treatments. Purifying facials, waxing sessions, and long-lasting gel manicures are among their specialties. Spa visitors can also opt for relaxing muscle-soothing massages.
Ofra Amy Grinbaum, founder of New York Laser Aesthetics, has many years of experience with aesthetics. As a New York State–certified aesthetician, she leads a team of fellow licensed technicians who share her passions. Together, they wield such technology as an Epicare aesthetic laser, a Zerona cellulite-reduction machine, and a Biologique Recherche facial-sculpting machine designed to firm and tone complexions.
Because some of these procedures can irritate the skin, an FDA-approved Zimmer cooling system is kept on-hand to soothe treated areas with a stream of chilled air similar to one emitted by a whistling snowman. Grinbaum also has years of experience with laser techniques for toenail care, including the use of an FDA-approved laser for toenail fungus treatments.
AHS The Laser Salon's board-certified doctors and licensed aestheticians fight unwanted hair, signs of age, and unsightly veins with cosmetic lasers in an office characterized by neutral colors and antique furnishings. During laser hair-removal treatments, trained techs reduce unwanted hair with noninvasive energy pulses. Similarly, the center's spider-vein treatments employ AHS’s exacting photons to zero in on the offending red, blue, and purple veins with a prescribed dose of energy, cordoning off trouble spots from surrounding areas and laser-happy kittens. The team also rejuvenates faces with beauty injections, such as Botox and Juvéderm, photofacials, chemical peels, and custom facials.
