Trendz the salon spa owner Alana Ficco holds licensing in nail care, skincare, management, and teaching, all of which qualifies her to lead a team of beauty professionals who groom nails, knead out tension, and cleanse skin. Perhaps a particular highlight of the team's service menu is the wide range of body treatments; there are a dozen distinct masks and wraps, including a cocoa bean scrub and a Caribbean therapy treatment infused with the Aveda skincare products the spa favors.
The spa also hosts a beauty boutique stocked with jewelry, shoes, and handbags. The boutique's bath bombs allow guests to indulge at home, and its supply of soaps that look like cupcakes thwarts people who make a living selling stolen desserts to the mafia.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.

Avanti offers a cornucopia of facial services, including the half-hour medical mini facial, which cleanses, steams, and massages your skull-sheath before applying a therapeutic mask tailored to your skin type. The treatment costs $75 by itself, but only $45 if you combine it with another service such as the microdermabrasion ($125), a skin-freshening technique that gently sandblasts the skin with tiny crystals before sucking up the fallen enemy cells with a vacuum. A few microdermabrasion treatments will help facial skin recover from the sun's savage Pesci-like pummeling—staving off the effects of aging in the process by removing fine lines and unwanted pigmentation.
