The licensed aestheticians at Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists perform their beauty work under the tutelage of Dr. Lyle M. Back, a renowned plastic surgeon. All treatments are performed with only the finest skin products, such as Avene, Obagi, and Neova. Renew your frontispiece with your choice of a salicylic or glycolic peel ($125). This treatment will exfoliate and tighten skin, motivating new cell production and shunning wrinkles for a more youthful appearance and attitude. Alternatively, a microdermabrasion treatment uses a non-wizarding, diamond-tipped wand to gently remove outdated skin layers, minimizing fine lines, scars, and age spots ($125). Both treatments come with a nourishing skin facial (an $85 value), a revitalizing mask that infuses thirsty, hallucinating visages with a fresh coat of moisture.
Individualized attention is the name of the game at Ageless Skin Solutions. Massage therapists take the time to consult with clients, and aestheticians thoroughly analyze the skin with assistance from the sun-damage-detecting Visia machine. Staffers then carefully select the appropriate massage lotions or skin products and thoroughly explain each service in detail. The team uses only noncomedogenic ingredients and pure pressed oils discovered during years of researching product lines and conversations with houseplants. Skincare experts personalize treatments to focus on specific concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, and employ innovative anti-aging processes including microcurrent technology and LED phototherapy. Exfoliating enzymes and diamond-based microdermabrasion sessions banish dead cells and include a complimentary massage of the face, neck, shoulders, and décolleté.
After aromatherapy-filled full-body massages, staff members direct rejuvenated guests toward the relaxation room for hot green tea or fruit-infused water and a light snack. The boutique-style reception area greets guests with elegant chandeliers, and treatment rooms cosset eyes with soft candlelight ideal for crafting a shadow-puppet version of The English Patient.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Quarterbacked by Dr. Evan Sorokin and a team of gifted aestheticians, Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery leads worn-out bodies to greatness with a playbook of surgical enhancements and noninvasive skincare services. Buff away blemishes and seemingly unmovable sandwich crumbs with the 75-minute face-restoration package that includes a 50-minute purifying facial, which uses a Clarisonic cleaning brush and manual exfoliation to excommunicate pore gunk before soothing skin with a medical-grade mask (a $90 value). Or Sahara-like faces can choose to cleanse themselves with the nourishing facial that refreshes with light exfoliation, vitamin C, and a skin-firming boost (a $90 value). Place newly supple skin in a pleasing frame with the brow and lash tint (a $49 value), and dethrone unwanted hair with a Nufree wax treatment on two areas of the face, such as the lip, chin, or handlebar nose hairs (a $47 value). Jealous brains get some attention with the customized skincare lesson and take-home sample products designed for oily, dry, and combination skin types (a $30 value).
Doctor of Chiropractic Jesse Liebman is primarily concerned with pain relief and restoring overall health. He is certified in the use of the Kennedy Decompression Technique, a comprehensive form of spinal-decompression therapy that addresses bulging vertebrae. Dr. Liebman also studied with peripheral-neuropathy expert Dr. John P. Hayes Jr. and specializes in treating hands and feet that are experiencing numbness, tingling, or an inability to do the robot.
But Dr. Liebman believes that health and wellness is about more than just pain relief. He is certified in the Brimhall Wellness technique, a six-step holistic program that addresses the body's structural integrity as well as issues such as nutrition and heavy-metal toxicity. To enhance patients' confidence and well-being, Dr. Liebman and his team offer noninvasive LipoLaser body-contouring services and microcurrent facelifts. And the cozy, homelike office puts guests at ease during treatments—full-length murals cover the walls with depictions of beach scenes, golfing greens, and a colorful hot-air balloon.
