When patients arrive at the office of Laurence Miller, MD, they will not find assistants, office managers, or any other sort of administrative gatekeeper. Rather, Dr. Miller, who has been practicing in Westchester County since 1999, greets his patients directly. Dr. Miller draws from board certifications in internal, pulmonary, and critical-care medicine to treat general health concerns during primary-care visits. He also offers specialized women’s health-care services, as well as aesthetic treatments such as sclerotherapy for spider veins and Botox cosmetic injections. He performs onsite tests for diabetes and osteoporosis, assuming internal organs remembered to bring sharpened No. 2 pencils.
After 19 years honing her skill at other local hair studios, Doreen has opened up her own full-service salon in the heart of Addyman Square.

If the human race ever needs to defend Earth in a space war using only its laser-wielding expertise, Bernadine Petrucelli of Defining Beauty will rise swiftly through our army’s ranks. A licensed aesthetician with more than 25 years of skin-care experience, Petrucelli commands an arsenal of cutting-edge lasers, whose beams can power laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and IPL photofacials to smooth away signs of age, such as the birth certificate taped to your face.
Petrucelli’s nonlaser treatments can refine faces with microdermabrasion and resurfacing peels, or even out complexions with acne treatments. To save clients the hassle of buying a cat to practice cat-eye liner on, she can enhance features with permanent makeup, lining lips and eyes or defining brows during a tattoo-like procedure.
Named Westchester Magazine's top Scalp-Tingling Experience in 2010, James Deagan Salon harnesses its stylists' beautifying experience to style hair and relaxingly sedate the head that holds it. While inside the intimate, boutique-like salon, follicles will have their forked ends fashionably severed to promote healthy hair growth and to put under pillows for the split-end fairy. Before the snip fest, hairologists will work with clients sitting in front of large, introspective mirrors to decide how to style manes in a way that most attractively frames faces. After a thorough wash, cut, and style, the approximately one-hour process wraps up by drying locks with the warmth of a blow dryer or the centripetal airflow of 150 chair spins.
In five private rooms, massage therapists help clients release stress during massage sessions. The therapists are experienced in more than eight modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and shiatsu. During reflexology sessions, feet soak in a bath steeped in Chinese herbs before the therapist applies pressure to specific points, each responsible for treating imbalances in bodily organs. Spa-goers also enjoy facials and waxing treatments, keeping their own sets of tweezers to build dollhouses inside bottles.
