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.
MedLaser's extensively trained and certified technicians restore a youthful suppleness and glow to skin through minimally invasive laser-based procedures. Relying on sophisticated equipment and years of professional experience, staff members work to tighten sagging skin and invigorate complexions via photo-rejuvenation treatments. They also reduce the appearance of unsightly scars or ill-conceived tattoos of scars through tattoo and blemish revision. Laser hair-removal sessions ensure long-term smoothness, and laser sclerotherapy treatments shrivel spider veins underneath the glare of safe thermal lasers.
MedLaser also performs acne treatments, cellulite reduction, and the removal of facial capillaries and rosacea.
Cindy, a licensed aesthetician, caters to clients' skincare needs by performing treatments that use cutting-edge, medical-grade technology to create dramatic cosmetic results. Bare Touch Laser's FDA-approved Candela GentleLase system is capable of treating a wide range of skin and hair types, and the device's dynamic cooling system helps minimize any discomfort caused by the pulses of laser light energy. These pulses can bombard the follicles of unwanted stubble and prevent the hairs from growing back over time, or they can help by minimizing the appearance of unsightly veins, sun spots, or birthmarks.

Julianne Steiner readily admits that she can’t turn off her “beauty junkie” tendencies. When she meets someone new, she automatically homes in on their most striking features and brainstorms ways to accentuate them. As an aesthetician and a makeup artist, Julianne begins with skincare in creating her beauty masterpieces. Using the organic Jurlique line, she custom-blends facials, and, with Palomar wand in hand, unleashes waves of pulsed light on brown-spots or unwanted hair. Julianne also offers Brazilian waxing, using special wax that's suitable for sensitive skin, as well as chemical peels.
Once she liberates skin from spots and fuzz, Julianne can fully realize her artistic vision with the help of high-quality liners, shadows, and mascara. In addition to applying makeup, she also teaches lessons and helps clients rid their own cosmetic bags of unflattering or outdated products.
The aesthetician at Sedora Spa unites her knowledge of natural ingredients with modern technology to help compensate for the shortcomings of plant-based skin products and radios made from coconuts. Ultrasonic massage devices shimmy across the skin with 28,000 vibrations per second to help break down blackheads, dirt, and grease while boosting circulation. Elecro facials firm up drooping skin by gently stimulating the muscles of the face and dive under the skin to kill the bacteria that causes break-outs. This technology works alongside skillful blends of Dead Sea mineral masks and natural butters and oils.
The team at Sedora Spa devotes itself to clients’ comfort. Cookies, snacks, and tea in the reception area greet incoming guests. In the candlelit treatment areas, clients can pick between vanilla and lavender aromatherapy or simply enjoy the cherry-almond scent of everyday oxygen.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
